Outfit Post – Alala by Aken

*PR sample and Affiliate links.

Good thing I took these outfit photos last week for this fashion blog post. The weather has been miserable here this week, with non stop rain and strong winds. Always good to make hay when the sun shines for real.

I am wearing a lovely blouse by Alala by Aken. You may remember this clothing brand from my last outfit post, where I featured a bomber jacket from the designer. Here, I am wearing another stunning piece from the brand. I love everything about this blouse. It is a stunning fabric designed beautifully. I can see the attention to detail on it. The sleeves are giving me life. Love them!

Outfit Post – Shine Bright Like A Diamond

Hey fashion lovers! How are you? I am good. It has been a very busy time for me. The month of June is pretty much over. It has gone by so fast. I can’t believe it is July next week. The weather has also been great and we have been making the most of the sunshine as you can see in this outfit post. The amazing sunshine is making me shine bright like a diamond that I am in these photos.

I am rocking my natural hair for the first time in an outfit post and I am so proud of  how far I have come.My natural hair journey started abut 2 years ago. It has been tough, and sometimes, I am tempted to straightened the hair with some chemicals. But then I remember why I started growing my hair natural, and that stops me.

My hair is still at the stage of me not really knowing how to style it. Which is why it is usually in cornrows. But for the next weeks, I am going to be experimenting with various natural hair styles and treatments to see what works best for my hair.

I have recently started using some new hair care products and techniques which I will be sharing on Fashion and Style Police in the next few weeks. It would be exciting to see how these treatments transform my natural hair.

In this outfit post, I am wearing existing pieces from my wardrobe. Even though I love fashion and I enjoy writing about it and showing various styles, I don’t shop very often. But when I do shop, I like to go for quality pieces that would last longer and stand the test of time.

Outfit Post – A Slice of Lemon

I was never really a huge fan of the lemon. I found it too “loud”. However, I have found myself loving the shade in last few years. There is something I now like about the lemon colour.

I wore this outfit while holidaying in Maryland. The lemon top is a new wardrobe addition. I got it some weeks ago, and worn it a few times already. That is how much I love it. It is super easy to style and very easy to wear. The black leggings is also a new wardrobe addition. I am forever buying new leggings. My leggings only look good for a few months, and then they start to look worn out. Maybe because I am forever wearing them. I find leggings super comfy, and easy to style. I don’t have to over think an outfit too much, once I have a pair of leggings to save the day. I have been told to go for more expensive leggings as they last longer than the regular high street pairs. What do you think?

Everything else I am wearing is an oldie but a goldie. I spent the day in the shopping mall browsing bargains and looking for amazing items to take home with me. When it comes to shopping, I prefer shopping in Europe than in the US. Maybe it is because it was my first trip to the US in 7 years. I was expecting to find amazing things I would like. But that as not the case at all. It took me forever to find things I really likes. In the end, I got fab items from Macy’s, Carters, The Children’s Place and a few other stores.
