Happy easter dolls! Quite a long weekend it was and i loved everybit of it especially since I had to be with family....and actually had the chance to meet my great aunts, uncles, cousins.....t'was awesome. Since it was such an event, I went for a subtle yet respectable look and hence dorned this Kitenge print tuxedo jacket from my designs.
I paired it up with these knife-pleated pallazo pants and my cropped white button up shirt. I accesorised the shirt with a vintage sun shaped brooch, added no more jewellery since the african is busy.
I finished the look with peach pumps and a matching belt. The sunglasses,, i totally love especially coz of the round structure and cat eyed edges.
The animal print detail on the inside of the shoe is adorbs.
Since I am always on a style prowl with my camera, I had to capture these looks below;
My lil' sister was looking all adorable in this batik bubble dress she designed for herself with black suede platforms.
My gorge cousin killed it with this polka dot blue and white dress, a red bold lip, yellow purse and gold flat peeptoes. She looked like she stepped out of a 70's movie scene.
Finally my baby sister in a grey frock, black tights and gladiator sandals

The beauty of a tuxedo jacket its the versatility it brings to the table. This jacket can be worn from the formal day in the office to casual friday to the weekend with a pair of denim to literally anything else possible. This piece was originally masculine until the softer feminine vibe came into trend.
What i love about mine is the houndstooth print on it. I find it tricky to wear the print so i decided to go for nudes and whites because of its busy print.
I have had these pants for quite a while and they used to have suspenders until i chopped them off. I love the highwaisted feel to the them as they elongate my torso and shape it.
Then i topped it off with my crimson envelope clutch. I tend to to find red complimenting prints that are black and white.

This my outfit for today, it was so cold in the morning so i decided to do this oversized fuschia blazer. It has become one of the must haves in your closet and its easy as raiding your boyfriends closet. Its boxy and has an oversize cut, i tend to love them....they are a throwback to the 80's. Below is my polyvore of the outfit.....
I wore it over dark leggings and paired it with my BCBG max azria ankle boots, i heart the ruffle details at the front. I added the pearl strands for a more sophisticated look and white button earrings
I did a sheer black shirt dress inside with dainty ruffles, the buttoned it up because of the blazer.I have a petite frame so i felt it was quite overwhelming for me so i decided to cinch it with a navy blue belt to add a shapely silhoute
I finally paired it up with this turqoise green tote bag.....totally obsessed with the color if you have notice from my previous posts
