Black and white are my colours of choice. One would say that is choosing non-colours (or a refusal to choose), so to speak, but I find these two quite rich in meaning, beautiful and poetic. Ying and yang.
Hello my loves!
First of all, thank you all SO much for all the love you showered on the previous blog post about growing long hair in Ghana. I’m glad that you loved the hair talk, because I have so much to share on the topic that I’ve been keeping in! One thing for sure, I simply cannot wait to finish with my exams so that I can devote more time to this ‘ere baby. There is so much I want to share with you… simply cannot wait!
This post is basically on how to wear black and white, again… There is no doubt that these colours are classics that you can never go wrong with. I wore this outfit this weekend on a general casual day, ready for a day of staying close to home and ready to dash out on errands when needed. To keep the look interesting I went for pumps in a soft olive green camouflage design and a somewhat matching but contrasting black and white print clutch. Echoing the gold on the clutch, I wore gold earrings and a delicate gold bracelet on my wrist.
Talking about echo, this is hilarious but Alex has been a living echo in recent times! He echos and strings out the endings of his words, it’s so funny to hear him speak. I literally have to suppress the giggles every time! He goes like, for example, “Mama, I want milk-k-k-k.” “Give me this one-ne-ne.” “Me first! st-st-st!” “I want this-s-s-s.” Ha!
By the way, this outfit might look like two pieces, but it is actually a one piece – rompers! Perfect for frolicking with the little ones, and easy to transition to an evening look. The texture is soft and silky on the skin, a loose and comfortable fit.
On another fun note, I’ve been experimenting more with makeup! It’s so fascinating how simply donning long hair and lipstick in an orange colour gives such a different look. I love this power of dressing up, looking different everyday on the exterior, and yet remaining the same on the inside. 🙂
Happy Thursday! Do enjoy the last couple of weekdays and have a lovely weekend, my dears! Thanks for reading my style diary. 🙂
