Alfresco

‘ Alfresco- In Open Air’

Dear Brownie,

 

Preambles…

I cannot stress how important it is to stop every once in a while, go outside and take a deep breath. No, not just metaphorically! Physically as well. You’d be surprised at what fresh air and grass can do for the mindset. If you’re a super brownie, you’ll have noticed I’ve been on a youtube break for some weeks now! I miss it but I cannot under play how amazing it has been stepping away for a bit to get some air! Do you need some air? Get some!

 

Outfit Thoughts…

Now, all the pieces I have on today have been played and overplayed in my closet. Confessions of a fake blogger: I’m not the HUGEST fan of shopping if it’s not for baking stuff (I know, what a betrayed) so I love challenging myself to use whatever I find in my (or my mother’s) closet and here are some random tips! Let me know if you want more Closet tips, by the way!

 

  • A white button down shirt is indispensable! This is a REGULAR button down shirt that I adjusted to my mood that day. I have about 3 of them with slight differences, size wise to suit whatever occasion.

 

  • As much as it’s nice to have basics, it’s nice to have special pieces as well! I love this skirt because it’s light for Nigerian weather and it’s a conversation starter. In reality, the slit falls in the middle but Bella decided to wear it to the side, you know!

 

  • Mixing different textures always gives you the look of sophistication! That’s where my furry bag come in! Want to look blogger-esque? Mix leather, cotton, silk or even patent for a complicated look!

Be Better Brownie!

      Whoop! I can't wait to see how it turns out. Also I love how you switch up the picture thumbnails (that's what they are called, yes?) from time to time for each post in the category page. It's the little things... :)
