DRESS TO IMPRESS








I am one of those people who believes that "its better to be overdressed than under-dressed". You'd think I had a job or I was going somewhere important if you saw me these days. I have even been wearing heels all the time, well it does help that there is a car. Fingers-crossed, hopefully I get one soon, I need to learn how to drive though.

This jacket was the last thing I saw on my way to the checkout at the thrift store and I picked it up immediately. I was initially going to remove the buttons but then decided that I like it just as it is. For a dressy look I paired it with my navy blue high-waist pants and then went with minimal accessories to finish the look.

Pants,Jacket: Thrift Store // Top: Maxteen // Shoes: Bershka // Necklace: Foroever 21 // 

I have to admit, Nigeria is starting to grow on me. I pretty much spent half of my life outside Nigeria( Israel and Thailand) so I'm discovering new places and things about Abuja everyday, its a learning process. So far so good.

Unique jacket! I think I like the buttons too. It adds character to the jacket.

I'm glad to hear you're enjoying Nigeria. I haven't been back in about 10 years. I'm looking forward to visiting soon. Have fun!
