How To Dress Like A Boss: Plaid it Monday

Hi,

Happy New Month of October!

It is snowing here in Calgary, as I am writing this post, I don’t know if I’m excited about that though. My weekend was amazing, I watched Sound of Music on broadway and it was spectacular. I almost shed a tear at the end of the show, but my tear was too shy to come out hehe. Okay, let me serious, I will recommend you to watch the broadway show. Do you believe I haven’t still seen Lion King on Broadway, I need to asap.

It’s a new week and how do you dress like a boss to work? You want to look confident and ready for any challenge but still look fabulous (Oh yes, without breaking the bank lol). Plaid is definitely a trend this Fall 2017 and I am so for it. I don’t think there are truly any secrets to dressing like a boss, I believe in wearing what makes you feel like a boss! If you work in the professional world, then your style should reflect well put together and tailored outfits but still looking effortless.

Wrap It Up with Tassels and Metallics

Hi,

How was your week? Anything exciting? My week was great, I celebrated my birthday and I am so grateful to everyone for the show of love, it was amazing. I am going to watch Sound of Music on broadway today and I’m too excited. It brings back so many memories. Growing up, I remember always watching the movie on a video tape (goes to show how old I am if you remember video tapes hehehe). The singing and this movie helped to shape me to be that hopeless romantic girl. I can’t watch to tell you all about the show, check my instastories.

Iro and Buba: Modern Twist – StyleByToyoC x TokaToka

Hi,

A little bit of background here, Iro and Buba is the traditional attire attributed to the Yoruba culture in Nigeria. The Iro is the wrapper and the Buba is the top. As fashion is evolving, the younger generation have found new ways to keep the style modern but still keeping the traditional attire alive. TokaToka created a modern twist to the Iro and Buba while keeping it chic. I love the floral silk print material and how it flows on the body. The modern interpretation of the wrapper is gorgeous; wrap skirt with ruffles. I felt comfortable and chic wearing this outfit.

Vacations are always amazing but the adding weight not so much…lol. The gym is calling my fat arms at the moment.
