My style has always been unique. How I put things together is not how you would put things together. Sometimes I’m intrigued by the outcome. Other times, I’m just in plain disbelief. But 9 out of 10 times, I always love and appreciate the outcome. Plus, I put zero effort into my looks even though it might not seem that way. It’s why I went into styling in the first place, to help you master your closets so much that every occasion does not call for flinging clothes across your bedroom floors till you emerge with a befitting outfit.
In my last post, I dished all about the Wedding Experience held in Baltimore. You should check it out here, particularly if you are a soon-to-be bride.
I paired my white flare jeans which I got last Summer, with a teal short-sleeved turtleneck sweater, my rust sleeveless coat from this post in 2015. I don’t have too many bags, so I grabbed my burgundy shoulder bag with gold chain strap and wore my old burgundy booties that I’ve had for about 4 or 5 years. For accessories, I wore my necklace from Inidara and out I went.
I am all about repurposing and if you’ve followed this blog long enough, you’ll know that has always been my thing. So yes, I went for both comfort and style, but mostly comfort as it was a cold evening. My pants and long navy coat (not pictured) gave me the warmth; I am always cold.
I made sure I looked professional despite the relaxed setting, because I was going there to network with vendors and brides. Some people mistook me for a future bride and I allowed it. After all, am I not a future bride? I went there to network and I did. I only heard of this event over the radio the one day I decided to turn on my radio for whatever reason. And look what happened. As a young entrepreneur, you have to force doors open for yourself initially, until you start hearing people knocking on your door. It’s life and once you are in the entrepreneurship lane, you are in for the ride so you might as well enjoy it.
Major thank you to the bride-to-be who helped me take these pictures. She’s pretty awesome and right from the time we both arrived, I could tell she was Nigerian from afar. We wound up exchanging pleasantries later (I went to network!) and she let me know she was indeed Nigerian. Those instincts don’t lie! We can smell each other from miles away. lol. Thank you, Chinwe! 🙂
That’s it for now. I hope you enjoyed this post and liked my outfit. Would you rock this or how would you have styled it differently?
Don’t forget to stop by the Memkoh Shop for the rest of this week. We just added bralettes and they are already going. Yayyy!
Talk to you soon,
