Looking Back, Looking Forward

Classic and versatile. It is no surprise that the tunic has been around forever. It is so versatile, taking you just about anywhere with the right accessories. With its classic shape, varying lengths, and a multitude of prints from which to choose, everyone can find a tunic that is flattering.

Yesterday, I received this tunic from a friend visiting from Ibadan, Nigeria. I absolutely love it! Talk about “global-inspired” huh. To create a work look, the tunic is belted with a woven belt, and paired with black martin trousers. Black cap-toe pumps and a chunky bead necklace add final touches.

Too Bright Or Just Right?


Eye-popping brights. I am mostly a neutral lover. So, it is no surprise that neon color trends scare me a little. Nevertheless, since seeing Budget Babe’s spring trend post on orange and pink, I’ve been surprisingly drawn to the color combo. Typically, I would play it safe and modestly incorporate eye-popping color by using an accessory like the pictured scarf. However, today, I felt like taking a risk.
A pink cable knit tank is layered under an orange cable knit cardigan. The tops are paired with a herringbone A-line skirt. Tan square-toe leather pumps, a tan belt, and a print scarf add final touches.

“Global-Inspired”

In “tribal.” Today’s unexpected warm day provided the perfect opportunity to pull out a dress and leave the tights behind. The look features a cotton dress with a structured empire and adjustable straps providing a snug upper fit. The “global-inspired” print—a perfect union of modern print and vibrant color—has to be the dress’ best quality though. A black cardigan and nude two-tone pumps complete the outfit.

As a Kittitian, I love warm weather!

Love at First Bright

I know. It is like 30 degrees outside and not even close to sandal season. But, what can I say? It was love at first sight. Not only do these sandals come in one of the season’s hottest citrus shades, orange, but they are patent leather with a timelessly chic t-strap. As if that was not enough to secure them a space in my shoe home, they also have a striking raffia wedge heel! So, you see; I could not resist.

In Full Color

Coming out. I’ve been snowed in for the past few days. So, today, I decided to come out in full color. A basic brown wool pants is topped by a citron yellow deep v-neck sweater layered over a fuchsia tee. Brown croc pumps and a two-tone scarf add final touches.
