Today is another outfit post, I wore this waistcoat as a shirt/blouse with a pair of jeans (fav) then I completely the look with a blazer, kind of gave it a corporate- casual look.

I have layered with this waist coat but I couldn’t get enough good pictures so I refrained from posting it here.

But if you follow me on Instagram @mikunstyles, you’d have already seen how I layered with it.
I thrifted this coat a few months ago it cost #200 and the most interesting thing about it is it is DENIM you’ll know how much of a sucker I am for Denims.. I’m not sure these pictures are showing that its Denim, but it is and that makes me liken it even more.
Everything I wore besides from the shoes was thrifted and the total cost is less than 2000 naira (the jeans was a bit pricy 😒)

Your clothes don’t define you, you define them. Never feel less in your outfits.

BELTED LIKE THE 80’s

Current Favorite: 80’s Films by JON BELLION

Hello,

I know it’s been a minute. I am fighting an ‘Inconsistent War’ and I really  hope I win

Word on the street is the Big Belts are making their  way back and I totally  down for them! I’m always down for retro… The farther the better (actually, I like the 90’s best)

I like the big belt for 2 reasons. First reason is because  they can give a snatched look, they are almost like a mini corset.

Also. They are good statement pieces, you know because they are big and all up in our faces  making a statement 😂 .

For my socks and shoes thing going on, I decided  to really  make sure you really get my retro vibes.

P. S I didn’t interview any blogger this month, I lost that battle to Mr inconsistency, but the war in still on, I’ll try to win more battles.

 

Word! Your style is a representation of your person,  so always deliver!

Hey readers,

Another week, another outfit post till I get my sh*t together to give you hair post sigh…

Screenshot_2017-04-11-07-58-09_1

This Ankara wrap peplum top is from Thm.co, remember I told you about them in a recent post named ‘THM-ed’ if you haven’t seeen that post yet, click here.

So, I decided to show you guys two ways I wore the wrap top.

Gone are those days that Ankara prints were limited to Friday’s only, precisely for Jumat service, I like how the print have been incorporated into our everyday day lives, so I thought I’d style it with a blazer and pants for work purpose and it turned out nice

For me, everything goes with a pair of jeans 😏. Here I wore the print top with a pair of jeans and I also liked how it looked.

I paired their ‘Wide leg pants with belt’ with their  ‘Flared sleeves floral blouse’, I fell in love with the pants at first sight (it is in my favorite color) I feel the belts adds a bit of chic-ness to the pants.

IMG-20170319-WA0014-01-01

The pants are very comfortable the fabric feels good against my skin.

I did not like the blouse at first but as soon as I tried it, I feel in love with it, the floral prints will allow it to be easily paired with a number of color.

Hey peeps,

How have you been since the last post? I have been so busy, this post in my imagination should have been up since Tuesday, but life happened. If you had a long week like myself, I hope this playful outfit of mine makes you feel better.

I haven’t thought of a title for this post, I am thinking ‘thrift-y’ because virtually everything I was wearing was thrifted, remember how in my last post I said I might become a thrift-addict, maybe I am. Hassie loves to save an extra penny *inserts laughing emoji here*

This outfit made me feel like a small school girl, I am so happy I came across the dungarees denim skirt during my last thrifting adventure. Is it just me or this outfit has a retro feel to it?? Yes retro is totally the new cool for me… technically ‘old cool’ get it??? *inserts wink emoji here*

The tie the knot trend is also and ‘old skool’ thingy and I loove it. I tied my knot to the side… ohhh I just found a title *inserts grinning emoji here*
