What Procrastination has cost me + week of 21st to 26th May workstyle etal

Tuesday, 29 May 2018

Monday:Dress and Bag-Oldie  Kimono-Tailor made Shoes and glasses-RiverIsland
Dear Diary,
Procrastination has cost me a a whole LOT! I end up regretting those tasks or activities I should have carried out but deferred.I make the same mistake over and over and over again after promising myself after an episode that it will not happen again.

I can buy an "aso-ebi" 6 months before a wedding but end up taking it to the tailor a day before the wedding and pay a lot more for express sewing....that is how bad it is. I am the kind of person that will leave Christmas shopping till the 24th of December 5:30pm when the market closes at 6pm *covers face
Tuesday: Shirt-HM Jumpsuit-Lomzy click here to order Shoes-Public desire Bag-Oldie
Like I said it has cost me.....though it has not caused any life threatening damage but it has impacted my life in a not so favorable manner. I have this nagging feeling that I would have achieved much more than I have if I wasn't an habitual procrastinator.

What has Procrastination cost me?

1. Excellence:- I would have been an A student or gotten that scholarship if I wasn't a procrastinator.I robbed myself of a lot of accolade and I deserved not to get them accolade #Ifyouknowyouknow
I end up with mediocre outputs or results because I did not commit the required effort and time into that task or activity.

 2. Failure:- I failed a few times. How can I be writing a professional exam like ACCA but start studying two weeks to the time? *sigh It worked sometimes and I pass but with barely get along grades but sometimes I fail.

3. Time wasted :- I have lost time.Time I wasted because I need to go back sometimes to correct the anomaly caused by deferring tasks. An example is rewriting an exam because I did not start studying on time and failed.
Wednesday: Blazer and top-oldie bag-oriano Shoes-Asos Skirt-teethrone click here to order

4. Missed Opportunities: Missed chances as I was not prepared when the need arose because I had postponed what would have propelled me to enjoy that golden opportunity when it presented itself.
Wednesday: Happy hour

5. Money: I have lost money and missed opportunities to make money.
Thursday: Dress,pants,glasses and shoes-Asos Bag-Oldie
6. Stress:Strain to meet deadlines because there is shorter time to juggle or do a lot.
Friday: Dress,pants and bag-Asos Shoes-the shopper's haven click here to order
6.Damaged relationships: Two of my friends had babies, I have put off visiting them and the babies are almost a year old. *coversface I hope they forgive me.

I put off calling my parents till they call me when they have not heard from me in a while because they love me

I planned last year to read the bible from Genesis to revelation this year using the one year plan....
I was to start 1st January but I deferred starting to February with a plan of  how I will make up for January ...... fast forward to May ending...... I have plans to start in June with a plan of how to make up for January to May *sigh

Why do I procrastinate?
Sheer carelessness and laziness.

How do I stop procrastinating?
Please advise me in the comment section....I will be happy to hear from you.
Which day of the week is your favorite of my outfits?

Ankara and lace set

Sunday, 6 May 2018
Design for Love (DFL) Ankara skirt and lace blouse for the Win πŸ™Œ. I wore it to church and got lots of compliments. The velvet details on the waist and pocket of the skirt is popping and there is the sheer details strategically placed as the sleeves and shoulder on the blouse/top.
*Peep the high low detailing in another print at the base of the skirt πŸ’œ

Why do I like this set?
1.You get two for the price of one as each item in the set can be paired with other items in your closet to give a totally different well spent if you ask me. 

2. The set is dressy and can be worn to church, weddings and other occasions (owambe things).

3. You can style the lace blouse with your two wrappers for village meeting, August meeting, to church and for different "owambe".

4. Style the skirt with a cami and blazer for that ankara to work style.

5. Style the skirt with a T-shirt and throw on your sneakers for a casual look.

Played dress up: πŸ’ƒ
Wear with Court shoes:
My only purple shoes πŸ˜†. It has seen the other side of life πŸ™ˆ Last wear, I promise πŸ™Ž

You can un-tuck(is this correct english?) or fly the blouse....for people like me that have belly pooch/pouch (which is correct? google has both as correct) *coversface
I had not eaten when I took these pictures,after food....there is no tucking any blouse/top in for me as the fit will not be flattering and the set works as seen below.

1. Which is your favorite?
A. With the sandal?
B. Purple Court?
C.Flying the blouse/top?
D. If none of the above works for you, how would you rather style it?
2. Where will you wear it to?
Lets gist in the comment section.

Ankara Work Style: Ankara and linen

Thursday, 3 May 2018

Design for love (DFL) sent me some ankara pieces, one of which is this very beautiful ankara set i.e. sleeveless ankara dress and linen blouse as part of their campaign to encourage ladies to incorporate ankara into work/office fashion.

DFL prides themselves as a fashion house that stocks super chic female apparel and accessories that reflect the african heritage while still being contemporary.

 Design for love (DFL) started in 2004 by Wunmi Olufeko, and it was borne out of her desire to infuse her love for arts into designing classy outfits for women. DFL’s brand philosophy is classy-elegance; the DFL woman is an understated beauty, who does not need to try hard to catch attention.

DFL specializes in bespoke/ made to measure female garments and works mostly with Ankara incorporated with other more contemporary fabrics like silks, laces and taffetas to create that “wow effect”. Each outfit is a unique work of art that tells its own story.

If you follow me on instagram you  will know that I am a sucker for ankara and love to wear them to work.I have recently set Wednesdays as my ankara to work day with the hashtag #ankaraworkstyle (you should totally follow me on instagram @opeyemisdiary

I styled the set with black accessories as it already makes a statement and I did not want to take anything away from it.

Caught napping----hehehehe

  There are several possibilities of styling this set and I will be exploring and showing them to you so please sign up to get updates as you will get notified immediately there is a new post.

DFL also sent one ankara skirt set for my followers and blog more reason for you to sign up so you get first hand information.
