Longer days and warmer nights

Happy Spring! I just thought I’d share a really cute OOTD fit from Mother’s Day. In the UK, we celebrate on the last Sunday of the month of March.

 So spring has come and I have tilted my head over to the Zara mid-season sale site, haven’t purchased anything as of yet, but that silk flower print kimono that Shirley posted sometime this month got me thinking lol. For this transitional period though, blush pinks, creams and nudes along with a cool denim (yay for tucking the dark denim back into the winter file to not be seen until September!) are my go to palette for me.

What go to colours are hiding in your palette ?

 Also during this past weekend, I attended my first wedding of 2017. I haven’t been to a wedding in 2 years! The occasion was so beautiful and intimate, a first for me. Imagine, I had around 2 weeks to actually find an outfit for the occasion and seeing as I’m so conscious of my body, can you just imagine the slight panic going through my head?

Shout-out to my home girl Bernie! She hooked me up with her aunt from Fantascreation whose designs have featured on many cool Ankara / kente bespoke tailoring Instagram pages including bellanaijaweddings and idoghana! Within 2 weeks (more like 5 days) me, a Caribbean, learnt a thing or two about buying lace material and how to differentiate kente (it was low-key a headache lol).  But I loved my outfit!
