Sorry guys. This post is coming supper late for many reasons. Been so busy, and trying to get my act together lol. Anyways without further ado, let get into today's outfit. Summer, sadly, is coming to an end. Autumn is just around the corner. If you live in England then you'd see that summer is already long gone, because it's been nothing but rain, I haven't seen a sunny day in weeks. I bid the summer days goodbye with this transition into autumn (fall) outfit.
I got this jacket from BooHoo some months back. I was looking for a biker jacket in a bold colour. I had a black one, but used the life out of it, and it was time to let it go, hence my search for a new jacket. I loved this Jacket because of the black detailing of the zipper and black buttons.
Since we are still in a summer month and it's not as cold as autumn yet, (although it can be a little chilly when it starts to rain), I therefore paired this jacket with a short skirt and mesh top. The skirt is actually on the "too short" side for me, That's why I love the pleated side which is a little longer and flared out; which I think is really cute.
These shoe tho! These shoes are an embodiment of all things trending this season. From florals, to embroidery, embellishment and the tie/ lace up trend. I didn't wear these as much as I thought I would, but because of the design I feel like I will still be able to get some wear out of it during the next season.
That's it for this look guys. I hope you like it. Till next time x.

The weather has been funny lately. Just a couple of weekends ago, it was the hots it's ever been in England in 41 years. Now, the weather is back to the normal British, higgy-hagga weather. Sun one minute, cold the next. That's why I'm always prepare. Honestly, I literarily carry a light weight jacket or a scarf with me wherever I go, even in this "summer" weather. In England you just never know. I can't say I hate, cause I don't. I kinda like the unpredictability of the blessed climate.
Jumping to the outfit now. Today's outfit of the week is a navy inspired look. Next to the Italian inspired frills and florals, Strips are the next trending this summer. Strips came in like a flood last year and are still over flowing in stores, and I don't think the tide is going down anytime soon.
The sun was beaming HOT over the weekend. My Gawd! I loved and hated it. It was sunny and beautiful, but the heat was intense and at a point just burning. I felt uncomfortable and a little dizzy at times from dehydration, although I was consistently drinking water. The sun was soaking the water right out of me.
I've been watching a lot of superhero movies lately. Hence the inspiration for this look. I came into this year feeling like superwoman. I told myself that this is my year of triumph. Has that changed? No. Yes, I've come across a lot of discouragements and challenges in these past months, but I've kept encouraging myself, to stay strong and be bold. I even wrote a post about it called "Dare to be bold".
For this OOTW (I changed it from OOTD because, I only post one outfit a week), I have paired this cape shirt dress with my favourite accessory at the moment. The bag with an attitude. Continuing with the comic theme I also wore my favourite tights, (you can't have comic without polka dots, can you?) and the comic strip lighting bolt trainers that I also wore in my last outfit post. "Bold with an attitude". I finished off the look with a bold coloured head wrap, and I'm good to go. This outfit came together nicely for me, but I want to know what you think of it, so please comment down below. Don't forget to like and share.
The last time I visited Italy, I was inspired by the colourful buildings and the run down maintenance style some parts of the country had. In a way, it was beautiful. Aside from the buildings and the lagoon coloured canal that flowed across the city of venice, this particular feature was my favourite. It gave the city character. However instead of the super colourful Italian buildings, I attempted a more neutral approach, to get a feel of what it might be like walking through the dense city on a slightly cold spring day. I've paired this thick very light grey jumper and nude chinos.
