SOPHISTICATION…IT’S IN THE MIDI SKIRT

Hope your Sunday is going well.This past week has been taken up mostly by school(as it ought to be) but I created time to check out the recent  Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks.I also did my nails in neon colours yesterday.You can follow me on Instagram @winniethefashionista to check out the photos.I rarely do my nails because it’s soo much work,it’s so tedious and time-consuming . Makeup over nail polish any day! It’s also too high maintenance to keep going to the salon for a manicure and pedicure for someone like me who isn’t working. My nails look great in the end but it’s just a lot to deal with .Not to mention I like perfection and when I mess up a nail,I remove the polish and start all over again.I can do this up to 3 times on one nail 😀 yo…The struggle is real.

For today’s post,I’m in a midi skirt,a pink top,a statement necklace and pink heels.I threw on a grey crop jacket because it was cold on this day.You see that sunshine?So did I.But it was a trick! I loved the colour palette of this outfit.Do you? I had on 3 different shades of pink (lipstick,top and heels)The lipstick is Flormar Supermatte number 501. Plus I like the way the grey goes with pink.

The allure of midi skirts is the way they go below the knees giving you that polished,sophisticated look especially when  worn with heels.Not that I have anything against short skirts but I think they’ve their time.Mine is a high-waisted, bodycon midi but midi skirts can also be full-circle and of course they come in a range of fabrics!

Do enjoy the rest of your day dear reader.I appreciate you for stopping buy.

DECEMBER IN THE TROPICS

All it ever is here is hot or cold.No snow! Since I was a kid I’ve always wondered how having snow feels like(like so many kids living in the tropics). Sometimes the sun is scorching.Sometimes it’s soo cold and we’re like dear dear,where did the sun go? This is currently happening here with us.The weather literally shifts every hour.Katy Perry’s song ‘hot and cold’ would suffice here.Well, we don’t like extreme weather but we have to be prepared for it fashionwise,or otherwise.

Well  I’ll tell you this,there are items of clothing that can help get us through thick and thin.If  it’s hot,you can wear them and not feel like you’re standing near a fire.If it’s cold,you can still wear them without cursing at the clouds for lying to you when you left home “ it will be hot today,wear the halter o vest!” .When you’re underdressed or overdressed for the weather it can be so uncomfortable.So when going out when it’s cold and not sure which weather to expect,these are a few suggestions:

I am a firm believer that cardigans is one of them.Not too heavy ,not too light.

I usually rock blazers in hot and cold weather because I know I can withstand them.

Image

Jean jackets are also the ish.They’re stylish too! I’m telling you denim is back ladies and gentlemen.

Ponchos also qualify in my book,

Image

A light jacket.This is so cute..

Image

A long sleeved blouse will also help you cover up in the cold,but also won’t feel too hot in the sun..ooh that shirt..

Image

Leggings and stockings are actually warm.So if you want to keep warm but still wear that nice pencil skirt or that nice short flirty skirt for that date or function and want to keep warm, you can try them!

Image

Rock that maxi when you want to look awesome but still not feel too cold.When the sun comes out,you’re still fine…LIKE A BOSS

You can’t be too careful! Though the weatherman tells you how the weather will be,it usually changes,FACT.Even HE needs to be told these tips!

Awsome Wednesday everybody.
