Growing up, I was told to never mix contrasting colours, for example colours like red and blue paired together were a big no-no. I always matched my shoes to my purse or dress to avoid colour riot as my family calls mismatched colours. Now fast forward to 2012, wearing multiple colours became a trend. Being a fashion enthusiast, I embraced this trend and have been rocking it since. Sure it has died down a bit but this is a trend I will never stop rocking because colours just makes everything better. 

Whenever I am feeling uninspired, I search for new blogs or stalk some of my favourite celebrities and this outfit was actually inspired by Yvonne Nelson, the Ghanaian actress and model.
