Business Casual with Navy Peony

Hi,

I am totally obsessed with the Paper Bag High Waist pants. It is a staple trend piece to have in your wardrobe. I love how chic and feminine they look when paired with a tank or even a button down shirt. The roomy pant legs makes me feel comfortable even though my waist is cinched (which I absolutely love). The paper bag waist pants is versatile and has always been in season. These pants can be incorporated into your fall wardrobe. The good news is that anyone can wear paper bag waist pants! They make you look instantly put together and mature, and they’re great for fancier occasions if you don’t want to wear a dress, or they can look professional enough for work. This look is definitely a work-inspired but you can dress it up depending on the occassion. Read more to find out how to wear paper bag waist pants. By the way, I have a behind the scenes video here

Hi,

How was your weekend? Can we work for 3 days and weekend can be for 5 days? Isn’t it about working smart not working hard. LOL.

Starting the New Week and excited for New opportunities. Today, I am celebrating a brand who celebrates African Heritage and is definitely true to her culture. The dress I am wearing here definitely shows details of the traditional culture in Africa fused with a modern silhouette. In my previous post, the designer was featured in the #MadeinNigeria Series, if you haven’t read it (Click here).

#MadeinNigeria: Nigerian Designer Spotlight – Osuare

Hi,

I am too excited to share all about this brand with you. When I thought about the #MadeinNigeria series, I came up with the list of brands to feature. I came across Osuare and fell in love with the authenticity in our culture through the hand crafted designs. In this life, growth happens when you move out of your comfort zone and take risks. I contacted them, blogged with the amazing pieces and got to know more about the brand. The brand has been featured in many publications and worn by many public figures.

What do you think about my new hair-do, i wanted something that would complement the  african heritage that oozes out from the pieces. I am wearing a piece from the Unbroken SS16 Collection and paired with pearl earrings and black shoes. This is definitely a piece I can rock to a wedding? Would you?
