H E A L I N G: ⁣How’s everyone doing so far today?⁣⁣Revisiting one of my favourite books by @theijeoma and almost every quote is relatable in the middle of this revolution that’s happening. ⁣⁣“1. You must let the pain visit.⁣2. You must allow it teach you.⁣3. You must not allow it overstay.”⁣⁣— Ijeoma Umebinyuo, Questions for Ada⁣⁣Pain comes in different forms. Pain can be quiet. Pain can sneak up on you. Remember it’s okay to feel overwhelmed and also okay to log off and recuperate. ⁣⁣What’s happening is painful but it is NECESSARY. It’s allowed so many black people to express years and years of pent up pain, anger and frustration.⁣⁣But remember to allow yourself to heal ✊🏾🙏🏾 ⁣ #blacklivesstillmatter

P U L L  U P: Morning ig fam. Diversity is a strength, not a threat ✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿 It’s amazing the support we’ve seen for #BlackLivesMatter over the last few days but let’s keep the momentum going. This is just the beginning. We’re not going to dismantle in a week, racism that has been in-built for decades and it’s going to take more than posting black squares on the feed. Let’s keep calling out BS where we see it. Here for @jackieaina ‘s call for brands to #pulluporshutup 🙌🏾 PS: I shared in my stories my example of a brand that needs to do better when it comes to matching up their actions with their words...

SmART Fashion: 4 Ways To Rock A Print Peplum Top

Today’s SmART Fashion will focus on how to style a peplum strapless top. I’ve chosen this Tiffany Bustier Frill Top from Ohema Ohene because it’s just plain gorgeous. It’s also very versatile which means it can be dressed up or dressed down. And it’s in ankara print! In the past months, we’ve seen the peplum trend and African print (ankara) trend become increasingly popular amongst designers, celebrities and fashion lovers. Both trends are very fun but can sometimes be quite tricky when it comes to styling them up.

If you decide to go ahead and grab yourself this adorable TIFFANY BUSTIER FRILL TOP, £65 from Ohema Ohene OR if you own any peplum blouses, this post is made for you.

Let’s get cracking shall we?

Look 1

White Pants – Let the top do the talking and keep it toned and simple with a dressy pair of Donna Karan white tailored wide-legged pants. Add character with a sexy pair of red heeled sandals and signature red lips and manicure.

I totally see myself wearing all of the above. But maybe I’m partial because I came up with the ensembles. If I had to pick one though, I’d go for the Leather Skirt. I’m suck a sucker for leather, a bold lip and lots of neck showing 🙂

What  is your favourite Look?

How would you wear this top?

Thanks stopping. Hope this helped.
