AQAQ Trousers (similar) | TOPSHOP Sweatshirt | ASOS Belt | OFFICE Shoes | COS Clutch | ZARA Coat

I don’t think I’ve ever been so satisfied with an outfit choice, ever, in my life. The sheer joy that I derived from experimenting with this 90’s sweatshirt over a pair of tailored trousers, and brought together with some gold and nude accents… Oh my, reminded me of why I fell in love with blogging and sharing my style moments all those years ago! I found myself giggling with excitement as I trotted down these London streets in anticipation of having the moment photographed!

I’m at that phase where I want to experiment more again with my style and share more of these moments, and now that Autumn is here (Winter is coming, yes!), there are ample opportunities to, with layering, textures and more!

    Very clean. I never wear head-to-toe white, because I can be very clumsy and the clothes will probably not stay white for long. You look very heavenly. Very chic look indeed, and you pulled it off collectively with the styling. The only thing I noticed was the difference, and distinct separation of color between the gold belt and the nude shoes & clutch. I’m not sure what else you could have done to make the colors come together more cohesively but altogether, very gorgeous look up to the hairdo. You exude radiance. Very Ralph Lauren F/W 2015 womens. Great job!

    This look is amazing but, like another commenter said, I could never wear head to toe white. Between makeup and clumsiness, by the end of the day I would be a disaster.

    This outfit is could be the hottest thing after shoe strings. all white couldnt look any better. I I love the gold belt too, the way its sinching your waist and adding that pop of metal. Its giving your look such an edge.

    Love how you put it all together. love, love, love and excited you’ve started blogging once again.

    I just wanted to say thank you for taking your time to share with us your love and passion for style, photography and writing. Can I just say London looks very beautiful and one day I would love to visit there but one of the things that I really like about you is that your not afraid to express yourself and live life one day at a time. I’m just like you, living life one day at a time and enjoying the things that I love to do before it’s my time to be with god. But overall you do not only share what you love you inspire women of all ages and ethnic backgrounds to just go out there and enjoy the beauty of life.
