Fall Preview: Black and White Duster

And alas the Sunday of Summer is upon us-August… and it’s drawing to a quick close. But fortunately September is coming up and fall is always an inviting season of renewal. I’m working on transitioning summer staples into fall styles.

This duster is a great piece to throw over a bodycon as the temperatures cool. There’s a story behind this black and white one. I entered an Instagram contest and was so fortunate to be selected to win this cute one from Meow and Barks Boutique! Don’t sleep on social contests! I had quite a lucky streak, I also won a hair kit from Girl Under Hair Care in a Fashion Bomb Daily contest- and they posted lil ol’ me’s picture on their page! Talk about an honor …honestly,truly!


Embroidery and applique flowers are so in, I love how it pops against the black and white. This black bodycon is from ASOS and it’s $19! Excited to throw other light jackets and leather jackets over it to transition it fully.



The duster makes the outfit, but to top it off I added these pom pom sandals from Zara. I got them in January in the sale. I had my eye on them, I kept seeing bloggers wearing them. The style is so cute! If you had told me last year that pom poms on shoes would be a trend, I woulda been like “issa no,”- who would have imagined it’d be such a fun, but not overbearing look! Trying to think of a pompom DIY for the blog. Texture and embellishment all around is so in on every article.

I added this crystal choker, which is one of my favorites cause of the sparkle. Find it in my Etsy. Layered with my nameplate that I got for my bday, it made for a good finishing touch.


Bring on the fall, hoping this new season is love!
Speaking of love, how amazing is the quality of these photos! Good photography literally changes the game. My cousin Wiafe took these. Hoping to have more shoots more frequently -It makes all the difference!
