I really enjoyed playing with colors here. It was not planned but I was pulling out the outfit and I thought, wow, I really like this!

Just a few updates because a lot has been happening and I don’t want things piling up. I was recently featured on KonnectAfrica and did a style post on West African LifeStyle where I shared my tips on how to slayyyy in ankara so I hope you enjoy and learn a couple new things about Miss LAJA and ankara 😉

This is the fourth and final design from the skirts available for sale (see the others looks here, here, here and tell me your favorite!) I hope you’ll see that show you that wearing multiple colors doesn’t have to be dreadful. Yes, it’s quite challenging but once you get the hang of things, it’s not as bad. When wearing colors, think contrast but check out my style feature for more tips 🙂 

The coat tones down and pulls the whole look together. I was pinching myself while buying it because whites/creams are too high maintenance for me as I stain stuff easily. I almost ran back to buy the black one but I refrained. However, the coat is fairing well so far, thanks for asking.

This is very random but on music, I’ve been replaying Placebo’s version of “Running Up That Hill” and to some it might sound really depressing, well the lyrics are but I feel it’s a lot deeper than that. The original version by Kate Bush is a lot more cheery but I think Placebo’s version really brings out the emotion of the lyrics. Can’t decide which I prefer though, haha. If you’ve heard one or both versions, what do you think? I always find myself stumbling across sweet tracks on Spotify. My taste in music is a blend of all sorts of things, hehe. Maybe I’ll be sharing my current favorites more often? Yay or nay?

Hope you have a restful weekend!
