White And Black Can Do No Wrong

The unofficial color combination when you can't think straight for me is black and white color combination. It is safe as it is universally accepted. Asides that, the outfit you style just has a way of coming together with minimal effort on your part. I know because that is my style uniform when every other thing fails.
This photo was taken last week Wednesday when I had nothing to wear aside trusting my go to color spectrum to pull an outfit together for me. I also wore flats as I sustained a knee injury at the gym earlier that week (one of the reason you need flats in your life, that is if you are a klutz like me).
 I really did enjoy the outfit as it was fun and girly while remaining professional. To get a look like mine you can visit Here For Similar Skirt or Here. Similar Tops can be found Here and Blazer Here. Find a view of a similar look below:

My Favorite Links Of The Week

Today I would be highlighting my best links of the week and why. First of, none of the articles were written by me or anyone I know but they have greatly impacted my life. I love to read (it is actually a hobby, dorky I know) and enlighten my perspective on life in generally and this has really contributed to building of my character and probably personality. I will run through the links paragraph by paragraph and hopefully won't bore you.

A bit of me to remove the boredom in case lol



I stumbled upon this advice "4 Ways to Increase Job Search Confidence" and I was immediately taken because the writer was speaking to me. Generally I tend to shy away from things I know I may not be qualified to do even though I may be wickedly good at it. I kind of keep my talent on the down low for fear of either seeming like a know it all or coming off wrong. I am not a perfectionist by any means but I am one of those people who believe that all arguments or opinions should be factually verifiable (I know it is bad and I am working on it). Anyway, this attitude of mine has kept me from applying for jobs till I am professional qualified to do so (now I Know better and needed to share this revelation).

Leaving in a country like mine where women are seen as the weaker sex and their lives may or may not matter, an article on "Self Defense Moves Every Woman Should Know" is just the right message all women need to be able to stand up for themselves. Note my country's perception of women has greatly improved over the years but we still have a long way to go especially the northern region of the country.

Coupon For Body Exhilarating Spa Package is available on the dealdey (my go to coupon website). Yea, I love pampering my body and when it is at a crazy discount who am I to refuse. The coupons are still available on the website if you are like me and need some pampering this coming weekend (yes the weekend is already on my mind). 
This photo was on their site and I need to have this look on my face this weekend

My intrigued alert went off when I say an online shop with this headers Technology Meets Creativity and I immediately went to their site to look up what it was all about. True to their words, I got to see amazing sneakers and clothes that has creative use of technology written all over it (pun intended).

Are you up for a good sales? and then by no means make this an exception. A Trendy Closet Sales You Will Love is just the right thing you and I will need to get our retail but budget friendly therapy going. A score of designer piece at reduced prices sound like a dream but it is really happening (click on the link to view that dream).

As you all know from my recent post that I am in love with white tees and guess what I am not the only one on that boat as popsugar apparently has an arctile with "Outfit Ideas Using White Tees" up on the site. You all should get your pinterest ready as you check out that link.

Till next time, keep on rocking guys.

Wardrobe Staples For Every Working Lady

Hello dearies, today I would be writing about investing in timeless pieces that are work appropriate while remaining budget friendly and I basically live my life around this pieces.

A Basic Blazer: When I say basic blazer please refrain from picking up that ugly and pain inducing blazer that is on your mind, thank you. Now a basic black blazer should have a perfect fit, inviting look and skin friendly material while still remaining affordable. Is this possible, yes it is. You just have to know where to shop (lol). I found a few Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here.

A Statement Jacket: I love a statement jacket especially those morning when you are half awake and can't be bothered to put together an outfit (yes I am one of those people who wait till the last minute to pick out my look for the day), all you need is that jacket that can pull together any piece you throw on together like these Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here

Perfectly Tailored Pant: This can't be overstated, get a tailor (they are very useful and necessary). A perfectly tailored pants would do wonders for your look and confidence as well. I may not be able to get you a tailor though but I  can help you score some amazing deals Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, for those pants you desperate need for work.
Fitted Straight Skirt: I am a major advocate of straight skirt to work and no it does not have to be tight for it to look good, it just has to be fitted enough to look good on your body frame. I chose the straight skirt because it can easily be dressed up for work or down for a night out with friends/colleagues without you making too much fuzz to reinvent your look and you can avoid the dreaded wardrobe malfunction that comes with flare skirts (I know the embarrassment). Score a few Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here

The Perfect White Shirt/Tee: A perfect white shirt cannot be overlooked in one's wardrobe. They are classy staples that will never let you down. If any other color won't work, you can always trust the white shirt or tee to step up to the challenge. I don't discriminate when it comes to fit or form because it all depends on how you wear it but a classic white buttoned down can never go wrong. A few finds are Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here. I got so many, I think I might need to step off the net for a while so I don't blow my savings. 

A Classic Jeans: I do realize that everyone is advocating for flare jeans these days but I won't be doing that. I believe the cut and form of your jeans should depend on your body frame and what part of your body you are looking to make the focus of your outfit. I personally don't hate any cut, okay may the short flare/boot-cut jeans (I just don't get it, it isn't culotte and yet isn't ankle grazing). I try to have all types of cuts of jeans in my wardrobe but you could stick to cut that suit you and you are comfortable with. Kindly note that shredded/distressed jeans are not work appropriate (at least not my kind of work appropriate). No matter the cut, keep the wash basic, the jeans classy and the fit complementary. A few finds are Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here 
The Perfect LBD: The Little Black Dress is a classic that can never go out of style, it is basically on trend every season and can be worn on any occasion. It is versatile and mostly accepted everywhere. The perfect dress depends again on your taste and what part of your body you wish to showcase. I found a few Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here that are great. 



The Perfect Pair of Heels: I maybe a bit bias here because I love shoes but they are very important in your wardrobe too. It completes any look and can elevate a look from basic to classy. Asides from elevating a look, it makes one stand tall and exudes confidence. Usually I would say a pair of heels is an investment but there are affordable ones too. My go to shop for shoe is Shoe Dazzle as their foot wears are affordable. As you can see Here, Here
Here, Here, Here


Others stores finds are Here, Here, Here, Here

The Go To Flats: I am aware that there are people who have sworn off flats and kudos to them but to me they are a necessity. You can't be serious catching the bus or train in heels unless you are pretty dedicated to the heel game and don't care enough for your legs in the long run. As a a budding fashionista like me and you would love to still look chic while catching the bus then the flat my dear is your friend. It doesn't have to be ugly and you can still make a statement with it if you want to. I found a few Here, Here, Here, Here, Here that are really eye catching.


And Lastly The Boss Bag: Yes some bags shout "I am in command". The structure and look of the bag screams boss lady which is necessary for your work outfit. I am not a bag person (yes I said that) but I make sure that I have a structured bag that is perfect for work. Found a few Here, Here, Here, Here, Here,


These tips are just for staples, it does not mean you are limited to only these pieces but that these pieces are a must have in your wardrobe. Most of my finds are from Asos, HM, Zara, Shoe Dazzle, MRP, Choies, The Outnet, Sheinside which are all currently having sales.

    Shoe Obsession

    I am one of those people who are addicted to shoe (one day I will show you guys my shoe collection, yes collection) and lately white tees. I realised that white tee are actually a must in your wardbrobe. It can be dressed up or down. Used for basically all manner ( cover-up, inner, top, you name it). So I basically have been collecting white tees of recent and this one made for a perfect corporate casual look for work today.

    About my sandals, I have had it for a while now but I haven't had it on my blog yet and today it spoke to me that it wanted to make an appearance lol. But really the sandals are super cute and I couldn't be complete without it (okay maybe I will).


     As usually I had to try all manner of poses to get what I wanted and the end result wasn't too shabby.

     What do you think of my simple look. And yeah about the reason I have been away. I have been reading for my examination coupled with traveling for work and scheduling a surgery(to remove a growth caused by my thyroid gland) which is in two weeks (so is my exams), I haven't been able to blog. I would be off again soon but this time I promise to keep you guys abreast of the entire situation.
