16 May What I Wore: Casual Chic meets Monotone
“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,” Ephesians 3:20
Hey guys, I’ve added a column to my style category called “what I wore”. This is basically going to be like my “street style”; which is my everyday style but just the select few that I reallly love and I think is style inspo & blog worthy! For this first post, casual chic meets monotone!
Note: All or most of the images in this category would be shot with a phone camera because ain’t nobody carrying a camera around everyday, lol. I promise, the quality would still be pretty good.
I wore this to a women in business event in my current city, Enugu. It was a small gathering of about 20-25 women. And I throughly enjoyed myself.
I was going for the trendy, dressed up but not too much kinda look, a.k.a casual chic. So, I wore my favorite palazzo pants and a matching olive green crop top, brown low heeled sandals and my current favorite bag that I got from here.The palazzo pants were all the chic while the crop top with side tie detail was all the casual. The straw bag tied the look together and was a good contrast for the olive green color theme.
The key to nailing casual chic is incorporating a casual piece and then a more sophisticated, tailored or trendy piece. For example, jeans with a dressy top (ruffled, wrap top, etc), or a casual dress with heels or a trendy pair of shoes (e.g mules). You want to look like you put effort into dressing up but not all the way to a business meeting or dinner party.
Notice the trends:
Monotone: (definitely going to do a blog post dedicated to this trend and how to do is right)
Woven bag: I love this woven bag trend so much. I’ve been carrying my one woven bag every other day! For me, this “trend” has come to stay!

Love & Light!
