AMSTERDAM CANALS




People in The Netherlands wear darker colours but that's just not me. I prefer a hint of colour hence why I added my favourite camel coat. Though technically it was a bit chilly hence why I carried my coat. I went for a pair of houndstooth pants and kept it simple with a white shirt.



GET READY WITH ME: DATE NIGHT

DATE NIGHT MAKEUP FOR WOMEN OF COLOUR

Hey guys! I hope you are all doing well. It has been a while since I posted a video and so I thought of sharing with you a look I wore for date night. Last week, I was in Amsterdam and my boyfriend had booked an evening canal cruise dinner and so I wanted to look extra gorgeous for our date. I have been loving this lip cream for a while now. Perfect for a bold sexy look and it ain't too dark for spring either. One thing I love about NYX lip creams is that they are long lasting.

SPRING IN AMSTERDAM



Patterns add a great touch to any look. I fell in love with the embroidery floral pattern on this top and I just had to carry it with me on my holiday. Packing for a holiday can be quite a task but I found that matching your clothes/outfits before hand really helps. By doing so, you know exactly what you are wearing on which specific day.


STYLING JOGGER PANTS

Jogger Pants

Casual meets chic in these khaki joggers. Dress them up with heels or down with a pair of your favourite sneakers. Shades of green like khaki and olive are not only great in autumn (like I did in this post) but can be incorporated into your spring looks. Paired with bold colours, prints or embellishments, wear with a Tee, blazer or bomber jacket and transition the look into night with heels.

CHITENGE / ANKARA / AFRICAN PRINT TOP

Prints are never going to go out of style and a great way to incorporate them into your wardrobe is to use African prints! In todays post I am sharing with you how to rock African fabric (also called “ankara”, "chitenge", "Kitenge"or “dutch wax” depending on where you are) effortlessly with items already in your closet. This top comes with a full skirt which I am yet to showcase.


FLORAL MIDI SKIRT

FLORA MIDI SKIRT

Other than off shoulder I am currently loving florals. I am excited to say that midi skirt season is here and I can’t get enough of the floral design in this one. I went for a blazer that complimented one of the bolder colours in the skirt, but I think it would also look cute with a simple button down white shirt. I have always enjoyed the way that midi skirts hug your waist and create a a-line shape, giving you that feminine look.

HOW TO TRANSITION YOUR BEAUTY ROUTINE INTO SPRING


Now that the sun is out, I am levitating towards bright lip colours. Bright lipsticks and nail polishes are always a good idea and will never go out of style.This is one of my favourite current looks this spring and its an infusion of neutral eyes and bright pink lips. Its my spring inspiration for a daytime look and its fairly easy to try.

STREET CHIC CAMOUFLAGE JACKET


For days when its not entirely cold, I tend to throw on cardigans and light jackets onto an outfit. This Camo jacket has been in my wardrobe for ages and has been a great versatile piece for spring summer through out the years. Contrary to the name, camo is definitely not blending in this spring/summer. Its about making a statement with an updated and modern look. The one thing I love about camo is the fact that it can be paired with different patterns such as stripes, different textures such as leather and denim, lastly why not mix it up with bright colours for an outfit that can't be missed.
