Diary Of An Isale Eko Girl – Mom Jeans & Bralette


Hey guys, how is it going? For this week’s post, I feature an outfit I wore during the Christmas holidays and totally loved – mom jeans & bralette.

Christmas 2016

By the way, did I mention that my best dressed at this year’s Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards was definitely Somkele Idhalama?! Everything about her outfit was amazing – the fit, the right amount of leg action and the right amount  of sexy.  She wore her sister (Andrea Iyamah)’s piece perfectly.

Now back to today’s post, I left my comfort zone for this one because generally I am not the type to show too much skin but it was Christmas and I really wanted to try something different, after all fashion is about taking risks.

The only thing different about how I styled it for this post and how I actually wore it at Christmas is the shoes and my hair, both were different while everything else is as it was.

The lacey white bralette was a gift from my friend Ronke. I am here for the texture and total look, especially because it is white. To be honest, I was not sure how the total look would turn out, because if you follow my blog you would know I do not try clothes on before I wear them even when I am shopping. I just look at it and decide if it would fit, same goes with putting looks together at home.

I totally loved the final look, switched up the shoes for the post cause I didn’t want the exact same look from how I wore it the first time, and my hair is simpler and not all over the place thus allowing the outfit to be the main focus. I did not forget about my new ritual, I was listening to ‘Wow’ by ‘Brandy’ as I put this together..

Side Note: Shooting in Lagos where its always hot can be so uncomfortable, but we have to find a way to make it work, right?!
