Army Green Spy

Hi dolls... So I had to go out of my comfort zone for a while and try colors other than black, grey, white, army green and burgundy. 

Let's just say it wasn't as easy as I thought it would be and I couldn't help but wear black today.

The only mistake was wearing long sleeves and black on one of the hottest days in Naij.

Hi dolls.... Happy Sunday :)

87Origins is a fashion and lifestyle brand based in Lagos. If you are into the whole minimal look, this brand would definitely appeal to you. 

It's not everyone's cup of tea as I learnt from my snapchat (Jibby_West) followers on Saturday but most people loved the idea of an affordable basic chic line.

There are also pieces for work which can easily be transformed from a day to night look (the stylist in me working).

One thing that got me super excited was the quality of the fabrics, light (perfect for our weather) and super soft to touch.

Hi dolls... A picture speaks a thousand words, these speak millions lol. Tired, breaking out, bad hair day, stressed... I could go on and on about all the things that are wrong in each picture but days like this make you appreciate the good days when they come.

I was just recovering when I took these but I love this jumpsuit so much (one of my many finds from Bicester Village). It was almost a steal when I got it many years ago and the color just gives it that extra za za!!!

Feeling blue

Hi dolls... I've been a bit under weather. One of my good friend says this happens every festive period and I'm starting to see her point. It might also be the stress of driving from the Mainland to the Island everyday, traffic and what not!!!

Recently, I've been playing with the idea of getting my own place on the island. Trust African parents, aunties, siblings etc to preach about how a girl should only move out of her parents house when she is getting married. I find that statement hilarious not only because it seems unfair (I lived in London alone for years without any issues) but also because it sounds like they expect you to be dependent on them forever.

An 18 year old abroad can move out of their parents house, start their life, and be independent but in Nigeria, a 35 year old unmarried woman will be looked down on if she leaves her parents house (I'm not 35 lol).  I went to university abroad, passed with flying colors, managed to stay away from drugs, didn't get pregnant, got a good job at some point yet I am getting lectured because I want to be a bit more independent.

Palm Sunday

Hi dolls... Happy Palm Sunday!!! I don't need a reason to dress up most Sundays but today I decided to go virginal with this white dress. 

I could not take pictures before leaving for church because it was 6am and the lighting was not the best so decided I would do a few shots after church.

It was so hot in church that most of my make up ran away with the heat due to constant dabbing but I was able to take a not so clear selfie for snap chat (@jibby_west) before heading out.

Rusty Petals

Hi dolls... Hope everyone is having an amazing weekend.

Just wanted to share a few pictures that never made it to the blog.

I've had this dress for a long time, even wore it for my sister's registry years ago (don't know how I did now thinking about it).

This throw/cover up has to be one of my fave clothing piece right now. It's so easy to wear with anything. The color is the perfect shade of rust so it can be worn with most colors.
