Spring Styling: Let’s Go Retro.

image

     *Breathes in the cool air deeply*. I sure do love spring. I mean who doesn’t? On my end, I’m tired of the harsh weather and the hot climate. Whoa!  The heat was intense, but gladly it’s coming to an end.

     When I started making preparations for a new style post, I thought of what could be more useful to people. Then the thought of the cold mornings after a heavy rainfall flashed through my mind. I wasn’t satisfied with it so I decided to incorporate a little retro into it, hence the title.

     Let’s admit it, the aftermath of a wonderful relaxing rainfall ( which I love to play in btw) is a weather that would make you scared of placing your feet on the floor. So, I hope we’ve all got our  cardigans, sweatshirts,  jumpers and whatnot ready ‘cos this is going to be one chilly ride.

       For this outfit, I’m wearing a vintage shirt I got from my friend,  Dolapo. You can hit her up on instagram. She sews and sells nice things. I didn’t want to go the all fun casual way so I paired it with a pair of Jean trousers I folded to show some skin (nah. Not what you’re thinking), a cotton jacket I got at a giveaway price. Lucky yeah?

     A pair of  boat shoes because it’s not every time you go the formal route. Sometimes go with your mood. I didn’t go heavy on the accessories either ‘cos I just wanted a look that portrayed effortless.

     You can decide to lose the jacket when the sun pops up to say hi. You’d still look good anyway.

     I’m mostly camera shy so I turn my face away a lot in pictures. Pardon me. I’ll probably pull a ‘Sia’ one day.

     These pictures were taken by my friend and photographer, Tomiwa Arije. Thank you man!

    • Thank you, Love. You’re a darling. I’d recommend a pair of sandal heels. They are the perfect match. You could also go with gladiator sandals for a comfy yet stylish look. A Pair of chucks or plimsolls should do do for a tomboyish look.
