OUTFIT: ANOTHER OUTFIT POST, ANOTHER RETRO LOOK…IN PLAID

Current Jam: Aisha by BOJ ft WANDE COALplaid (7)Hey guys,
Short weekend hun? ūüė© just typical, lol.

I have come with another outfit post…another retro look in this plaid skirt I thrifted months ago, I think it cost me about 300 naira or so.plaid (3)I like how plaid is coming back (totally down for fashion comebacks ūüėČūüėČ) so I decided to share with you one of the many ways to incorporate plaid into your style.plaid (2)The print can be tricky, so I suggest you pair your plaid with a plain shirt like I did (till you feel like you’ve gotten a hang of it), you could go for a more fitted shirt or even a crop top depending on your preference.

plaid (6)The socks and shoes thing going on here is so I really hit the retro look ‚Äėhard‚Äô (you know me, I’m all about that retro) loool. Remember this blowfish shoes I got months ago? Totally still paying off.plaid (5)Finally, my fanny pack, I think you should get one of these, they’re ‚Äėdope‚Äô ūüėČ.plaid (1)That’s all for this look, I hope you have a lovely week, don’t forget to subscribe.
Till the next post (hopefully Thursday) where I’ll be bringing you a non-outfit post like last Thursday. ūüíēūüíē

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 ūüėí)

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

Lastly on the thrift story, I bought these dresses, a black button down dress, a slip dress (finally) and the floral button down dress, the retro feel of this dress got me almost immediately.

This shampoo is was not  thrifted, but its New in, I recently noticed that my scalp is so dry and itchy, so I bought this Selsun blue shampoo, I have used it once, I noticed significant improvements after one use, but it is too early to concluded. I will be doing a review on this shampoo as soon as I am convinced it worked for me. The shampoo cost #980

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*

imag3176-01

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*¬†

P.S Excuse any flaw you might see in the pictures, I had to change on the road and that is not a very easy thing to do. You would spot my DIY tote bag in most of the pictures, that bag is too loyal!! Click here to see the post on the bag
