The Not So Conventional Fit

Am i the only one who instantly thinks of 'what dress to wear' when invited to a wedding?

I attended my friend's wedding in June and decided to ditch the conventional 'dress/skirt' look and go for something different. If you are African, you will know that as a female, rocking up to a wedding in trousers is definitely unconventional and i got a few looks from some aunties and uncles but who cares *sticks tongue out*. 

Anyway in addition to wanting to wear trousers, i've also been on the look out for a pair of high waisted flared trousers, and found this colour pop gem in Zara, this summer is all about ditching the bland shades and going BOLD with my colour choices. I teamed it with this gorgeous double peplum vintage jacket i picked up from Beyond Retro.

Top Bun, Top Bun, Top freaking Bun!!!!! i've practically worn my hair up in a top bun all year round, i absolutely love this hair style, such a simple and easy style to rock. My boyfriend absolutely hates it but............
