Trend: Wide Leg Pant


Hi dolls... I've been seeing a lot of this trend lately but this isn't a new trend, it's a trend that has always been around but has it's season.

I got mine from one of my fave Nigerian brands Maju. Maju has to be the most affordable brand in Nigeria at the moment.

New uniform: Turtle Necks

Hi dolls... I have a thing for basics. It's just the easiest thing to throw on when you are looking for a quick fix. 

The turtle neck vest top recently crawled into my closet and I'm never letting it go. It's perfect for rainy season yet still dressy enough to be worn to work. 

I styled it in three different ways but it still looks chic, elegant and effortless. 

If you have that skirt that is always giving you a headache to piece together with a top, or a pant that nothing seems to fit, you definitely need one of these. 

Black and white

Hey dolls... I've always been a big fan of black and white. There's something so cool and chic about the look. 

Last week, I played with a lot of old pieces in my closet but styled them completely different but stuck to my black and white theme.

There are loads of pictures on my Instagram page @jibbywest. Will do a lot of style tips on here and a post on how to revamp your closet on a budget.

Little Black Suit

Hi dolls... I'm a big fan of black because I believe you can't go wrong with it and in it. You can easily have a cheat day in anything black and it's the perfect color to wear when you have something to hide.

I love having little black dresses because when in doubt, I wear black. It is my go to color but it also saves me time when I think I have nothing to wear even though I have a million and one items still with their tags on.

This is actually a playsuit but it looks like a dress. I love the little apron-like flap in front covering the shorts.

Miss Dotty

Hi dolls... Polka dots can be a bit boring or should I say repetitive but I like the trend because there is a lot you can do with it. When you have pieces like shorts or a skirt, you can print clash with stripes or add a pop of color or use metallics or pick the color of the dot for the top.

A dress on the other hand can be tricky. I could have styled this dress with a belt or a statement neckpiece for a wedding. If I was wearing it to work, I would have settled for navy or black pumps to keep it conservative. 

I decided to add a pop of color to brighten the look seeing as I was going to church so I settled for bright heels, lips and a headpiece.

Dajana and Stavros Wedding - The D Day

Hi dolls... As promised, pictures from the wedding I attended last month in Cyprus. The bride is a talented bridal designer and she made her beautiful weeding dress (she also made the dress from the night of the beach party).

Everything about this wedding was planned to perfection. I loved the fact that it was my first Greek wedding but yet it felt so familiar, almost like a catholic service in Greek.

As soon as we got to the venue, we were offered light refreshments before we took our seats. The ceremony started at 5.30pm on the door. I figured they wanted to start late because of the sun (remember I said planned to perfection).
