Hey guys!  How are you doing? It’s been a while since my last post and I’ve missed here so much. Who else is super excited that 2016 is coming to an end and also Christmas?! The Christmas period is usually my favorite time of the year because of all the festivities and how happy people usually are. At least that was before the present economy recession. 

     It’s that time of the year where everyone tries to cozy up. Harmattan is here. Not fully but here. Waking up to the cold dry weather which makes you miss the rainy days, a lot of skin treatments and all sorts. Harmattan is definitely my least favorite season but it has it’s upside. Harmattan style is one of the coolest because of the varieties of jackets, scarves and what not you get to wear. 

Today’s post is inspired by the weather and when I was putting the clothing pieces together, I just knew it was the perfect time for it.

I’m wearing a white T-shirt with green details on it which I got from Odds and Cool and a pair of denim pants. Denim pants are important essentials for harmattan because of the thickness and it’s ability to retain warmth which is why you should stock your wardrobe with lots of it. I decided to make the denim a high-waist one to give it more form and also to complement the T-shirt.

To not make the look so basic and also to give it that harmattan feature, I went with this super cool bomber jacket I also got from Odds and Cool (@oddsandcool on instagram). What attracted me the most to the jacket was the colour. I just couldn’t resist it because I’ve actually been looking for something olive or close to Olive to add to my collection.

And also the convenient fold at the bottom of the jacket which is not tight.

For shoes,  I went with this burgundy Tomy Takkies for contrast. This pair is so comfy. I could sleep all day in them. You must have seen me dancing in them on my instastory (@Collins.haute | are you following me yet?).

I ditched the belt and went for this Ankara strip which I’m totally loving by the way. It gave the look a little bit of pattern.

I decided to go with just this white facecap and the sunglasses because minimal accessorizing was just perfect for this look. You could decide to ditch the facecap and go with a beanie (headwarmer) which would look as good as well.

And also, if you’re feeling warm enough and do not need the jacket, it’s still real good without the jacket. Especially those days with the really cold mornings and the hot afternoons.

Shooting this look was sooo fun because I got to do it with one of the coolest people I know,  Benny. We had so much fun which you must have seen on our social media accounts. She takes really awesome pictures as well.

      There you have it, guys. One of the million ways to cozy up this season. I hope you enjoyed this post. Please leave your thoughts in the comment section. I really do enjoy reading your comments. And please, do share.

Till next time,
