QUEENING IN MONOCHROME
I actually realized that it is a new year and I have not been around for quite a while now. Nevertheless, I know that we recently ushered in the second month of the year; February. I can already feel that the ambiance has shifted into a dimension of love-sphere. The day that we are all forced to reckon with, Valentine’s Day; is here. However, it’s not too late to wish you a Happy New Year, yes? 2019, is still too young.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you my readers, A Happy 2019. As the months unfold, may you all grow into your purpose, new beginnings and most importantly, may your style in fashion cause jaws to drop because of your gorgeousness. I know you have not heard from me for a while now, but I’m back with saucier looks.
I was looking forward to the day I’ll be back to share my style secrets, obsessions, and tips which are more revamped than last year’s looks. For me, a good sense of style is like going into the kitchen to prepare your favorite meal. Like any good meal served on a plate, it needs one to go through recipe books, proper ingredients and to follow steps needed to prepare a tantalizing meal. It is the same with fashion, one has to go back into their fashion kitchen and cook jaw-dropping styles.
Anytime I am creating content for my blog, I take my time because I have to create vision boards and lookbooks that guide me. I mean, good things always take time. Right? I hope I did not keep you waiting for my return! I am grateful that God has blessed us with a new year and I can’t wait to see what he has in store for us this year. Last year was filled with his love, your love, and support that I’m genuinely thankful for!
We are in this crazy hot season and the heat is just unbearable! Literally, the heat has someone’s blood boiling. There are three things I like about this summer weather though which include: the clear blue skies during the day, the romantic cloudless skies that are filled with shining stars that makes you wish he can propose as the clear skies remain to be a witness to it and finally we can show some skin in our outfits. We can show our skins rocking outfits such as off shoulders, shorts, see-through chiffons, and the list is endless.
I am sure some are wondering what’s monochrome? Monochrome is simply wearing a black and white look. There are many ways to rock this look, for instance, you can do a white tee+ black high waist rugged skinnies + white heels or a black short blazer dress+ white sling bag+ white rubbers. It’s a matter of pairing those two colors only and you are ready to go. Just visualize yourself in one of those looks, how simple, classy and sassy would you be feeling? On my end, I decided to break the rules and wear black/white for both my polka dot off shoulder top and striped shorts. I was feeling super trendy, chicly and classy.
If you are wondering what to wear for this hot season, try the monochromatic look and kill us softly with that trend. Don’t be left out!
I’m also feeling like it’s time we break the cliché red outfits that everyone rocks during Valentines… Try the monochrome look for a change if you are a victim of coloring the streets with red outfits on that day. What do you think?
Enjoy the post guys!
