TOPSHOP Jeans & Jacket // H&M Tee & Ring // LOUBOUTIN Pigalle Heels // DOROTHY PERKINS Clutch // NEW LOOK Sunglasses // RIVER ISLAND Watch

White Jeans and I have become very good friends. I remember a time when I absolutely hated how they looked on me, but it wasn't until I found this pair, that I began to fall in love with them.
They're a nice remix to my classic black ones, and perfect for those days when I want to do neutrals.

Today I paired them with a simple grey boyfriend tee, and one of my favourite jackets, this faux fur gem from Topshop. To pull everything together, I chose a pair of nude pumps.

A beauty tip I once heard is that you should carry around a pair of sunglasses, sunshine or rain, as it not only helps to protect your eye area from sun damage, but it also stops you from squinting so much in bright light and windy conditions!
Lots of squinting may mean premature wrinkles and crow's feet, er...

I've had the best seats this past week for London Fashion Week... streaming from my bed! Haha!
I wasn't too keen on all the madness (terrible winds, my weave, cobbles and heels) this time around, but I did feel like I was right there in the middle of it all, thanks to the internet!

What have you been up to?

I really want a pair of white jeans but I am just too clumsy and I just don't think I could rock a stained pair of jeans!
But they look incredible!

Stunning look! The white-colored trousers look amazing on you an ideal fairly neutral mixture. And such a wise decision to flow LFW from the convenience of your bed.

Shirley Asare said...

Hey Shirley,
I love your style and poise! You never fail to look stunning.
I design African print accessories for both men and women namely fascinators, ties and bow ties and I wondered if you could sample a few.
I think your look would definitely compliment the product and vice versa.

To view a few of my products please have a look at my instagram Just_Adorn.

I'd be grateful if you could email me your response at info@justadorn.com

I look forward to hearing from you.
