If you live or work on the Ikoyi/Victoria Island/Lekki axis then yesterday must have been pure hell for you. Traffic was bad! I mean bad-to-the-bone kinda bad. It took me nearly two hours to get from Dolphin Estate to Golden Gate restaurant yesterday! A drive of tops 5 minutes on a normal day o. After playing both CDs of Life After Death and sneakily playing Candy Crush on my phone while waiting for the car in front of me to move a few inches forward, I decided I had had it and I made a right into Awolowo Road and drove straight to Swe Bar. Luckily it was Thursday live band night so I quietly sat down in a corner nursing a double Barcadi and Coke while the Ebony band played everyone's fave Naija songsw. I stayed there till 11pm when I was sure the evil spirit that was causing the traffic had been cast out and wearily drove home.
Anyway the reason for the long gist is that I want to talk about how being under pressure can turn out to be a good thing. I woke up very late this morning (I'm never late to work...like never ever ever late, infact sometimes I get to work a full 2 hours before work officially starts) and didn't have a clue what to wear. After a horribly cold shower I just grabbed this cardie pulled on this jeans, forced my foot into my trusty red suede flats and dashed out! I was shocked (pleasantly of course!) when a colleague told me she liked my outfit (hence the decision to this here post).
Normally I wear this cardie over another item of clothing to keep warm but today I decided to make it a top and pulled up the sleeves. My red suede flats has been everywhere with me in every imaginable condition and she still looks like she still has a lot of mileage left, I love the heart shape on top with the sprinkle of studs on it. I would buy an extra pair if I ever find one again! Money well spent right thurr!
I accessorised with a charm necklace, a wooden ring (yes wooden....its made of wood) and a charm bracelet and this gorgeous Cappuccino coloured bag (the leather is so supple).

I can't explain why I'm drawn to animal print, I think it's my fave print. Maybe I should try incorporating stripes and floral prints into my outfits.....
