Shorts' season

Hope everyone is doing great. I am going to keep this post brief because as I am typing, I can barely keep my eyes open for so long--I barely had 3 hours sleep from last night. Therefore, I don't want to start rambling off key :)

It feels like the week just started and now the weekend is around the corner. In fact, I can't believe that March will be over this week. This means I am a month closer to my graduation and my birthday month :)

I wore this out to friend's birthday dinner at a restaurant in downtown Maryland called XS. Love the venue and any place that lets me eat waffle anytime of the day is a plus :) It was nice to get out after weeks of being a slave to my books and school. I almost forgot what fun times with friends felt like.

Spring fever

Scarf print by

This has been one of the most relaxing weekend so far. I had Friday to relax, ran some errands, and squeezed in some school group meeting. On Saturday, I went to New York with my hubby for a quick get away. Even though we needed a longer get away, this was a bit helpful to get away from my crazy schedule. Now, I can't wait for May to get here so that I can take a longer vacation and relaxation.

While in New York, I did a little shopping, walked around a lot, and slept a lot. I got a chance to go to Brooklyn for the first time because we found this Nigerian restaurant called Buka. I wish I could take most of the food home. I haven't seen any Nigerian restaurant in Maryland that offers a nice variety.

At Buka restaurant, I met an old friend of mine Temie. We meant back in undergrad years in 2005/2006 and he introduced me to his wife Bola. His wife happens to be a Jadore-Fashion fan--how nice is that! :) I love coming across people who are fans of this site and hearing how inspired they are--Thank you all so much :)

On another note, my husband and I are planning on visiting New Orleans for a mini trip sometime this summer. I heard they have amazing food and the french quarters is beautiful. Has anyone been to New Orleans or live there? Where is the best place to stay, eat, and tour?

Yellow Blues

This weekend was a bit more relaxing than the previous weekend. After a brief time at work on Saturday, I went to see my friend Tosin for a little bit of chatting before I went home to get ready for a friend's birthday. At 8pm on Saturday, we all headed to "XS" to celebrate Michelle's birthday with a group of 15 friends. The venue is nice with three levels including a live DJ on the third floor. Everyone ordered meals from sushi to waffle. I was in love with their waffle--I could eat waffle anytime of the day. :)

I spent Sunday working on School work and did a bit of cleaning and cooking. I made some stir fry and I also made yams too. The rest of the evening, my husband and I watched some movies on Itunes before heading out for some ice cream at Cold stone. The weather has been on a good side lately--warmer that I expected. I can almost say that spring is here :)
For this outfit, I mixed pastel colors with a little bit of floral.
I had my friend Nife join me on this vintage school bus shot. I have always wanted to take a picture inside the school bus. It brings back high school memories of 6:30am bus pick up time even though this is more fun :)

H&M Exclusive Conscious Collection Spring 2012

Pleat Mini dress: This is definitely the color of the season and definitely one of my favorite from this collection

My mouth dropped when I saw these collection. H&M never ceases to impress me.  Some of the pieces from this collection has already been seen on the red carpet among celebrities like Amanda Seyfried, Viola Davis and Michelle Williams to name a few.

 I love the purple dress on the left--great detailing.

Love the pink slit skirt and top--sexy and demure. The dress on the left is definitely a show shopper :)

This collection will be available in around 100 selected stores worldwide and selected looks online where applicable from April 12th

PS: I really hope I can get my hands on the pleat mini dress--if you see it in any H&M around you please let me know *begging* ;)

Happy Sunday!

Paisley bright

This week has been one of the longest weeks so far. From Saturday up until yesterday, I forgot what a good sleep felt like. If you are following me on Facebook or twitter, I mentioned that I had my exit exam for graduate school on Saturday. After the exam, I spent my whole day at the library with my case group. I thought spending long hours on Saturday or Sunday at the library was enough...Nope! I spent Monday after work at the library until almost 2am and I had to be up again at 5am. You should have seen my eyes. I looked like I got punched in the eyes LOL!

Anyway, glad that it is over for a second and I can try to get some rest this weekend. In a nutshell, I spent my weekend at the library. What did you guys do?

One good thing this week is that the weather is warming up. Since Monday, the weather has been feeling more like spring/summer--70 & 80 degrees. I couldn't be happier :)

Arise Magazine Fashion Week 2012

Following in on the current trend, scarf prints,  I love the scarf print patterns used for the last two outfits on the right. It reminds me of Mary Katrantzou. Also love the beading and embroidery of the first two designs--wearing art.

Love the sexy, fun, sophisticated approach to these pieces....trend spotted: Peplum

Meena by Uju Offiah 

Love the simplicity -- very classy. The color cobalt and simplicity of that dress is phenomenal. 

Random: I went to elementary school with the designer Uju--bravo to her! It is nice seeing the growth of her collection. Hopefully she can  fit me in one of her designs someday ;)

Neon Pink

Neon pink

How is everyone doing today? The weather seems to be warming up here. Well, let me just say, it warms on somedays and then switches back to cold/freezing weather. I heard the weather is suppose to reach 70 degrees today, which is great for March here in Maryland. I seriously miss warm weather. I have had enough of the cold.

Anyway, I was meant to upload this post last night, but I was so tired after class. The funny thing is that while I was working on this post last night, I fell asleep right next to my laptop with my school books next to me until my alarm went off at 5am. I guess you can't cheat sleep sometimes. :)

Regarding this outfit, I wore this to my friend's surprise birthday game night for her finacee. I just wanted to go with something simple, but yet edgy by pairing my victoria's secret v-neck tank top. Adding the Zara skirt brought a bit of edginess & sexiness to the outfit. I love v-neck tees--it can always be dressed up or down.
