TOPSHOP Dress | RIVER ISLAND Heels | ZARA Bag | ASOS Watch | &OTHER STORIES Bangle
Yesterday I posted on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook asking you guys to guess the theme of my outfit and the majority were spot on… Orange is the new Black. Well, while I’m away visiting family in a hotter climate. I’m currently in Lagos, Nigeria and it is 31°C (88°F) and it feels like I was popped straight into an oven from a freezer!
As strange as it sounds I feel like I have permission to don brighter colours and make bolder choices with my outfits when I’m in hotter climates. I’m so used to my black, white and neutral palette that I love so much, but thought to have a bit of fun with colour while I’m out here.
So far, I’m liking this orange dress I picked up from Topshop just the other day. I featured it as well as a few other pieces in my most recent haul on my channel (below).
I also hit 500,000 subscribers on YouTube this week, and let me tell you, it feels so surreal! I’m always humbled by the amount of love and support that you all show me. Just know that I read all the messages and emails I receive (I don’t always get a chance to respond to every single one but I always send some good energy to each and every one of you). Thanks for being such a huge part of my life.
Lots of love.
*PS* I’m hoping my lovely readers who live in cooler climates can revisit this look when Spring comes around!

Hi Shirley! You look good!

I was just thinking the same thing. There are a lot of bloggers in Lagos and a lot of people interested in fashion and beauty so I am sure you have subscribers living there. Hope you do a meetup, I’m sure my friends will attend! Have fun in the warmer climate cos loI was just thinking the same thing.
