Hello lovelies!

Merry Christmas!

Christmas is a time of cheer and merry, a time to relax, reflect or dress up and look good. With that, I chose to go out for once, this year. I mean, who doesn’t love getting dressed up and going out on a nice Christmas Eve?

I’ve had this jumpsuit for two years but I never could quite figure out why I never wore it. I guess I hadn’t found the right ocassion like on this day.

What I really loved about my look was how comfortable it was first of all, it was chic but also playful.

I loved the colors which I think complemented my skin tone so well, and also reminded me of the ankara styles which are mostly worn back home in Nigeria.

I paired the jumpsuit with red pumps from ASOS which seriously revived my love for heels.

Finally, I topped it off with a coat which was from my mother’s wardrobe. It fit perfectly for the look I was going for.

  1. Very similar to my red African jumpsuit I’m crazy about, so I understand what you mean when you said playful. You look splendid in it. And the day was well deserving of the look
