NON JOGGING JOGGERS

Hey! Hey!! My beautiful people. How are you doing?? How was your holiday?? I loved mine!!! My friends were in town, so na waka waka I been dey. They are going back tomorrow tho. * sad face**

 
I bought this green joggers sometime this month initially to sleep in. No, not to jog, yes I know it is a jogger. But since my sister kept going on and on about how fine it was, I got a bright idea to style it with this army like top, and it came out well. :D
Moral of the story: Fashion has made it easier and acceptable to wear sleeping clothes/gym wear out in public and it is actually fashionable. I love this!!!


What do you think about this look?? You should give it a try tho, maybe this weekend or independence day??? I know it is Monday already and this type of outfit makes you wanna go back to bed or continue chilling but no worries there, another holiday is just around the corner. Take heart and look at fine pictures. Ehear.. lol.

MIXING PRINT #1: PLAID PARTY



I promise guys, I am not a vampire, lol. I know I post in the middle of the night quite well but isn't the night more colourful, ehn??


You remember THIS POST where I said I was going to do a blog post on print mixing, Yes? (NO go read it jor). You can see this post title did not read how mix prints or become a pro at print mixing, I will do a separate post for it with lots of inspirational pictures and stuffs. So please stay tuned for that.
Here are some summarised and simplified tips on how to mix prints, especially for beginners or if you are having one of those days that you want to let your style diva shine i.e you are willing to take some fashion risks. Here are some things to remember;
  • Colour is key. Work with outfits that has one solid colour you can find on both clothing or outfit with the same family colour.
  • Pair large prints with smaller prints or pair different sizes of prints to create balance
  • Keep every other thing i.e accessories, simple or to the minimal

I am wearing a somewhat "plaided" top (not really) paired with plaid pants. The big prints for my outfit were on the top and the smaller prints where kept at the bottoms, the pants/trouser (I would advise that whenever you are doing this, you should keep the smaller prints at the bottom... but do you booo!!!) and then I kept every other thing simple. It seems I have a thing for plaid ehn, Remember THIS??
BTW, Do you like my hair?? :D *bats lashes**


Remember confidence and a smile are the best accessories you can have and you can wear just about anything you want. Start a trend or something because why not. Take a look at Rihanna, She looks good in everything she wears, damn that girl can wear a sack of cassava and still look hot. I need several shots of her confidence juice. Goals much?!

Hi lovelies. How are you all doing? Long time no post. Sorry about that. I guess you should be tired of me always apologizing and saying I would change my lack of post attitude. I hated it when I already like a blog or find it interesting and then the blogger just stops posting or post once in a blue moon and I promised myself I wasn't going to do that when I start blogging but look at me now ( in Chris Brown's voice ) lol.
Seriously tho, here is to me promising to figure out the best way to upload and inspire you and have fun while doing it. Thank you for sticking with me.

I hope you like my outfit today and I hope it inspires you. I was inspired by the various hats I see on various blogs I stalk visit. Btw, how cool are fbloggers/young people nowadays, their blog posts and social media accounts are always filled with positive and inspiring messages and their very dope styles. That is the life, yes? I want!!!

IT IS A PLAID THING


Hey lovelies. How are you doing today?
This post was suppose to be up this afternoon but I was a little under the weather mostly mentally so I wasn't up to it. This is what I wore today. I am liking this my new thing of doing outfit of the day #ootd the actual day I wore the outfit like I did here.


Saturdays are usually casual for me (erm.. duh, Oluchi!), hence the outfit. The plan was to go for dmp (designers market place) and  also the other one that holds at city park, Abuja and go see a movie afterwards but like I said earlier, I was a little mentally drained so I didn't do any of these.
I brought a plaid shirt for cover up because I don't trust this Abuja weather and plus I initially intended to the cinema and it gets chilly there sometimes. Do you love the plaid thing i have going on here? I do tho. the shirt actually look good together with the shorts but it also makes me look really small. Hehe. Not that I mind, but I wasn't sure you guys would want to see that.


I really love the quality of these pictures. What do you think?? Thank you Uzo, I know you don't really like the publicity. I don't usually like to flood my post with the same picture over and over again. I really don't like/get when it is done but what do I really know now?? plus I think I now get why it is done. Hehe.
So here is a million and one pictures because they look too good in my eyes.. alright, just kidding.. here is five more. Hope you don't mind??






Get the details of my bracelet thing in my last post or send a mail to dleonalife@gmail.com or a Facebook message or direct message on Instagram.
Btw I always put out this disclaimer that I don't look this good in real life, Sorry to burst your bubbles. Haha. So when you see me in real life and I look all scruffy and ish, Do not say you were not warned. Lol.





Am I the only one that notice how different I look from here from the last time I posted? I mean one day difference with the same hair, I don't get it too.

Ohwell... That is it guys. I hope your day was fabulous. Go to church tomorrow tho.
Sleep well my darlings.

Thank you so much for reading. Until next time.

BUTTERFLY

Hey beautiful beautiful people. How are we all doing?


Can we just pretend that it hasn't been long since I post anything here? Yes? Yes!! Happy new month lovelies. Wishing you blessings on blessings.
How wicked is this photography? I love  it. Can I be this beautiful everyday, all day?? No? Moving on...

It is quite rare, almost impossible, for me to post an outfit of the day #ootd of the outfit I am actually wearing for that day. Does this make sense? I mean this is what I am wearing/what I wore today. Mostly because I don't have a personal camera atm, saving up for one, pls help me pray o. Plus if you want to make contributions, send me an email. hehe.



I am wearing this beautiful gown called butterfly gown here in Nigeria. Atleast that is what I know it as. What do you know it as??

I accessorized with a black choker and some beaded and non beaded bracelet (shambala), made by my sister. Kai.Talents skipped a family member.  Lol. They come in variety of colours and I have had some people ask me about it. So if you are interested please send an email to me, and I can only cater to the people in Abuja, as that is where I live. Please bear with us. For the remaining part of the nation, I think it should be going up on Dealdey very soon. As for the choker, it is sister's benefits *winks** but you can also send an email for that if you want it. 


How beautiful are these babies aka shoes!!! I really love these shoes, shoes are my vanity. Btw this leg chain is the bidness ayeh and it is available on Dealdey at a great price. Stalker me, I should know. lol.
No, I am not affiliated with dealdey o. I am guessing we are friends, same way I will inform my friends. It can also be used for a hand chain. As i said it is the bidness. lol. That is it for today.

OUTFIT DETAILS (as requested)
Gown: Thrifted material/tailor made
Shoes: Boutique (I guess you can send an email to dleonalife@gmail.com for directions on how to get it)
Choker and bracelet : Sister (email me)
Leg chain: Similar on dealdey

Thank you so much my darlings for reading. Until next time.
