Pleats Please!!!

“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase”

Happy MLK day America. Indeed, it is tough right now for America as Obama has just officially left office and we are ushering in a new President who many are unsure of. Despite this, in the words of Martin Luther Kind Jr. let us hold tight to faith even though we are unsure of the future of America and the world in general. There is a lot of chaos currently around the world, and my only prayer is that one day the light on earth shines brighter than darkness, and love greater than hate.

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

So let us all spread positive energy in our own ways.


With that being said, todays look is a casual winter look. These days, I am trying to incorporate more jewellery into my dressing so I teamed up with Idunnu Tomori of @Misayohouse

Misayo House specialises in fine-fashion jewellery. Their jewellery pieces are really affordable and double as everyday glam pieces.


For this look, I am wearing the crystal bangles and multi coloured cocktail rings. I particularly love these pieces because although they are simple, they are elegant and go well paired or worn separately. They are also suitable for holidays, when you need to glam an outfit up without breaking a bank or going overboard.

The pieces go well with my fuzzy sweater and pleated skirt. Actually scratch that. They go well with just about anything.


Sweaters over skirts were a major trend in 2016 and it is something I have fallen in love with. Usually, I am not a trend fanatic – however, this is one trend that I will probably stick to for a while.

I love the “semi-casual I am not trying too hard” look. These are probably my only pair of slip-ons .. although uncomfortable, I love them and I try to wear them as much as I can. I think I did a great job pairing them with this look. What do you think?

My favourite part of this outfit is the fuzzy sweater. I particularly love the colour and cannot wait to style it in other fun ways.
