OOTD: A Spring Outfit

I can smell spring in the air, can you? The last couple of days have a bit warmer, the heating does not come on as often as it used to, the days are getting longer, and we have even had a few spring showers.

I like the Spring weather. The cool breeze isn’t too cold, so we can gradually start letting go of the many layers, but the endless rain disturbs me, especially when I am out and about. It is extremely hard to get anything done outside with the continuous rain on some days. Except for the rainbit, Spring is cool.

I took these photos some days ago before stepping out. What do you think of this Spring Outfit? I found it very chic and comfy; casual but yet stylish. Do you agree?

I got the blue t-shirt while holidaying in Milan last month. We bumped into a Mercedes-Benz fashion store, and we were blown away by the stylish fashion pieces and accessories. I never knew Mercedes-Benz was also a fashion retailer, so I was pleasantly surprised to discover this store. We got quite as a few things as a group, but I got this t-shirt and a few flat shoes, one of them, you can see me rocking here.

I am also rocking my new Tiffany & Co. Infinity Pendant Necklace. This delicate beauty was featured on my Instagram feed some days ago. I love the Tiffany Blue enamel finish design so much! This powerful symbol of continuous connection, energy and vitality is what I need. It is such a beauty, and I can see myself wearing it for many years to come.

Natural Hair Transition Almost Complete

So for those who do not know, I decided to stop applying relaxers or chemicals to my hair, and let it grow naturally instead. I made this decision because I was tired of how unhealthy my hair. It was in a terrible state, with severe breakage and no edges, and that was because I was not giving my hair the care it needed to strive. I have neglected my hair over the years by not applying the right daily treatment, and just burying it under one weave or another. It got to a point, it became too embarrassing to show off my natural hair even at the hair dressing salon, because the hair stylists would always have a rude comment to make about how badly my hair was breaking. Like it was not partly their fault, lol.

I took this photos some days ago and I am very impressed with how healthy my hair is looking. I honestly cannot remember when last my hair was this healthy. My edges are back and kicking, my hair is super thick and strong. There has been very little shredding since I took my cornrows out (I usually have my hair in cornrows). And the only way for my natural hair seems to be up!

I didn’t do the “big chop” because I didn’t want to drastically get rid of the relaxed ends. However I plan to trim off the ends in the next few days. And I see my hair going fully natural in the next 3 months at the latest.

I am very happy with my current hair routine. I think it is working great for my hair. I treat my hair daily with Almond Oil and water in my spray bottle. I apply African Pride Shea Butter Miracle Moisture Intense Leave-in conditioner every other day. I wash my hair with Shea Butter Moisture Shampoo and Restorative Conditioner once a week when I take off my cornrows. I also use the Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque once in 4 weeks. I also apply TTT4Z Hair Food every other day for extra nourishment.

My daughter also has the same hair routine I have, and her beautiful curly hair is how my hair was at her age; how I want it to be now. Her hair is another reason why I went natural. It brought back lovely memories. Hair goals all the way!

Keyshia Cole vs Gwen Stefani in Moschino

Hey fashion lovers! How are we? I have another “who wore it better” feature. This time, it is Keyshia Cole and Gwen Stefani in a Moschino Embellished Crop Jacket. Who do you think rocked this look better?

I think both ladies styled the jacket in their own way, and it worked for their individual style and personality. But if I was asked to pick my favourite look, I would pick Gwen Stefani in a heartbeat, and I would tell you why.

Gwen Stefani is a style icon, so it should come as no surprise that she slayed this look. I love how she styled the Moschino crop jacket with a black turtle neck, denim skirt, fishnet stockings and black thigh high boots. This is a look I can see myself rocking easily so I am naturally drawn to it.

Keyshia Cole looks good also. She styled her Moschino jacket with a black crop top, leather lace-up pants and silver sandals. I like how she styled the crop jacket with a crop top. That part of the outfit looks ace. She has the figure to slay the look, and she nailed it. But I am not a fan of the rest of the look. I don’t like the leather lace-up pants on its own or paired with the silver sandals. It is too much going on for me, and I think the Moschino jacket is stunning enough to speak for itself.

If I was to rock this look, I would style it like Gwen Stefani did; I would let the jacket be the stand out piece, and keep the other pieces and accessories minimal and basic.

What do you think? Who do you think wore it better? Keyshia Cole (on the left) or Gwen Stefani (on the right)? You decide.
