Itʼs the last Thursday of June! This may or may not mean that todayʼs post will mark the end of my Triplicity Thursdays series...but fear not Iʼve got another series coming up for July, which youʼre bound to enjoy.😌
Anywho for todayʼs segment of Triplicity Thursdays, I decided to style a scarf, not as you would expect though. To add some summer vibes to this blog, Iʼll be styling scarves as shirts- specifically as tube tops today. I came across this
concept of scarf shirts on Instagram and I have been obsessed! You basically get a patterned scarf -preferably one made from thinner materials for the summer heat- then you wrap it around your torso till you form a tube top to
your liking.That probably made no sense but youʼll see down below how I formed my tube top. I tied it from back to front and tucked the knot under the fold I made at the front.
Your scarf choice is crucial! If you want to play around with how you tie or have more options for adjusting the tightness opt for a longer scarf.Longer scarves are more flexible and can be tied in any way to form the shirt of your
preference. I styled a silk scarf, despite being silk it didnʼt slip off, if it was smaller perhaps it would have given me a difficult time but because I was able to bring it round to the front to tie it, it didnʼt give me any problems. Also for
mix and matching purposes I decided to style a very colorfully patterned scarf. They're easier to mix and match. Now scarf details aside letʼs get started with the looks!
Style 1: This is a very easy look to achieve that also seems very fancy. If you wanna leave the house ASAP, this outfit is for you! Just slip on your ripped jeans, your fav sneakers, tie the scarf around you and you are out.
**Tip 1: If youʼve chosen a very patterned scarf, go for basic jeans so that only your scarf top receives all the attention and remains the highlight
of the look.
Style 2: Now this look is slightly more fancier than the first one, but still similar.
I paired the scarf shirt with wide legged pants and pointy cat heeled flats. I was aiming for a sassy formal-ish look here. This look is perfect for fancy meals at fancy places.
**Tip 2: If youʼre wearing this in the evening simply add a blazer to complete
the sassy formal-ish look. Or if you want to make it less formal refrain from
tucking in your shirt and simply tie the scarf to form a crop top.
Style 3: Saved the best, and the fanciest look for last. A DIY dress ~ I paired the scarf shirt with a white skirt and added a statement belt and made it seem as if it was one fancy dress. This would be the best go-to outfit for the summer! You can wear your two piece swimsuit under for a beach day or you can simply rock it as it is as an outfit for a super sunny day.
**Tip 3 :Adding a statement accessory- such as the belt in this case- helps add a nice finishing touch. Also if you want extra support to hold your scarf shirt in place,go for this look.
Well thatʼs a wrap. Hope you guys liked the looks I formed from trio-styling the scarf shirts. I wonʼt be saying goodbye to these scarf shirts anytime soon, so youʼll be seeing more of them in future posts for sure! Which was your favourite look?

I’m back at it with my second post for my triplicity Thursday series. This week I’ll be trio- styling *drum rolls* sweatpants! When is it ever not a good time to throw on sweats?! Props to all of you that workout everyday, you honestly have no idea how much respect I have for y’all. Me on the other hand….I’m more of a couch potato. Yeah I have a collection of sweats, yet I don’t actually use them to work out. I do the contrary and save them for styling on lazy days. This post is mainly for all the fellow couch potatoes out there, but people who workout yet still wanna know how to style sweatpants, do read on! I attempted to mix and match one pair of brown sweats (all that couch potato talk inspired me on the colour choice) to form 3 different styles, as always I’d love to hear your thoughts on them so leave them down below!
Style 1:I decided to pull off a stylish sporty look. I paired the sweats with an off-the shoulder top. This look is perfect for when you’re finding it difficult to figure out what to wear. If you are actually going for a workout like this take a change of shirt for working out in. It’s alright making a grand entrance to that gym, but working out in an off-the shoulder top… that’s another story. 😂
**Tip 1: Pair your sweats with a fancy shirt to achieve a successful stylish sporty look.When I say fancy you don’t have to go all out, think more of crop tops or off the shoulder tops.
Style 2: For this look I paired the sweats with a hoodie. Now hoodies + sweats =perfect for lazy days.You’re getting comfort while also giving off some style, isn’t that the ultimate goal of everyone's lazy day outfit?! Plus if you sporty people do decide to go for a run or something at 5am, you can always do it in a hoodie, just opt for a thin one.
**Tip 2: Add a hoodie that’s bright or a graphic hoodie to give the illusion that you put lots of effort into your outfit, when really, it barely even took you 5 minutes to style! If you wanna add more to that illusion you can also go the extra mile and throw on a cropped hoodie. You can’t go wrong with a hoodie and sweats look.
Style 3: I decided to add a splash of colour with a pink sweater. The pink was the
highlight of the outfit, next in line to the scarf.I added the scarf just for the sake of maintaining the brown theme I had going on. I topped of the look with ankle brown boots. Now what! Did she just wear boots with sweats?! Yup! Who says you can’t add a lil’ extra final touch to the look. This look, sadly for people that work out, is not apt for going to the gym in no way. Yet you can choose to try this look on one of your cheat days or off days😉
**Tip 3: If you’re tired of rocking pants, feel free to rock your sweats next time. Consider it as if you’re rocking saggy jeans. I mean, we all need a break from those jeans from time to time.
That’s a wrap on my trio-styled sweatpants. Fellow couch potatoes I hope I gave you some inspiration regarding how to mix and match those sweatpants. Leave your thoughts down below. 😉

New series alert! This June I’ll be introducing a series called “ Triplicity Thursdays” to my blog where I’ll be choosing one outfit and mix and matching it to form three different styles. I’ll be adding more clothing articles to that specific outfit or completely revamping that specific clothing article *rubs hands together* we shall find out! I figured I’d be able to express mix and matching effectively through this series.
To kick off the series I chose this checkered black and white dress to trio-style ( let’s vouch for this word for word of the month?)
Style One: For the first look I kept it very basic, I simply wore a long black cardigan over the dress and completed the look with black converse. This look is suitable for running quick errands or for lazy days. If you get too warm you can easily take off the cardigan and when it gets a bit chilly you can put it back on.
**Tip 1: if you’re styling a checkered dress and don’t want to color clash or want to play it safe, simply choose a cardigan colored similarly as one of the colors on the dress. In this case I went with a black one, but alternatively I could have gone with a white one.
Style Two: Yeah I may have a slight obsession with bows☺… I mean look at them, what’s not to love about them! So for style two I played around with the ongoing black and white theme. I paired the checkered dress with black knee high socks, black converse and a white blouse underneath.To complete the black and white game going on, I added a black bow to the centre of my dress and a huge white bow on to my messy hair bun.
**Tip 2🎀: If you don’t want to accessorize heavily just grab yourself some bows or DIY one and add them to your outfit. Of course you don’t have to go over the top with them like myself. You can either make the bow the highlight of your outfit by placing it where it can be seen easily. Or alternatively, you could place it subtly where people don’t notice it at first, but when they do it gives your outfit that extra oomph.
Style Three: I paired it with a checkered crop top, the squares on the crop top however are relatively smaller compared to the squares on the dress. Aand *drum roll* I also revamped the dress into a skirt by tucking in the top half inwards and tying it together at the back. Ladies we all go through that phase where we tend to get sick of our dresses no? So there’s a little hack for you!
**Tip 3: If you get sick of your dress, revamp it into a skirt by tucking the upper half inwards and either tying it at the back/side or holding it together with a small belt. Going back to the size of the squares, I played around with the squares because this enables you to create a certain illusion of shorter torso and an elongated lower half.
Well those were the three looks for today. If you’ve got thoughts on these outfits don’t hesitate to share them down below in the comments. I hope you guys will enjoy this series.

Today’s post will be focused on my monthly faves series ‘This,These and That’. This post is way overdue and was supposed to go up last week, but life got in the way. Better late than never though, right? May started off rocky due to finals but things evened out and May ended up being great because I got to graduate!? ?
When you start something with a bam you definitely have to end it with a bam. ?That’s what I was aiming for with my graduation outfit yet life was testing me as I was unable to get the dress I had initially wanted to wear. Nevertheless things eventually worked out and I managed to get hold of another dress. This other dress that I got however managed to make it to the top of my monthly faves, and yeah, that’s a big deal. How I got this dress is quite a long story, but long story short, I did not choose it, someone else did. *Gasp* How could you let someone else choose a dress for you? Was it a stylist? And to answer those question you’ve probably got running through your head : nope! ?She was no stranger and we are actually really close. She knows my style inside and out, to say the least, and managed to choose something breathtaking! I’m usually reluctant to go with what others pick out for me… or if do end up going with it, I always have to tweak something. In this case though, there was nothing I could tweak! Have you guys or ever trusted someone else to pick your outfit for you? Would you be down for it… or are you too picky? Do share your thoughts below. I have to say, it is actually interesting to discover how others would interpret your sense of fashion and style though!
Beauty wise, these golden nails and this Miss Dior perfume( which you can view here managed to make it to the top of my faves list. ?
I’m the sort of person that cannot start their week with bad nails. Sundays are reserved for pamper days for me no matter what. Even on stressful weeks I have to somehow squeeze at least 15 minutes to pamper myself which includes a lil’ manicure session.I’d love to hear about your mandatory routine as part of your pamper day (which ensures that you present yourself as if you’ve got your life together) down in the comments below. Even if you’re falling apart on the inside you gotta keep those nails looking decent so people get the illusion that you’ve got your life together. ?The point of all that rambling is to point out how obsessed I was these nails I got. I’m a lover of all things shiny and bright? so these nails along with all the shine on my dress, I have to say made me melt a little on the inside! It was really hard getting rid off them, I’m guilty of keeping them on for too long?… but can you blame me! They were way too alluring to remove!
That one song that really resonated with me this May was B.O.B’s ‘ Big Kids’. Despite having graduated it still hasn’t hit me for some reason. Fair enough though...everyone adjusts to things at different rates and everything will unfold in due time. The journey so far has been amazing, to those who have gone through it with me and supported me, I cannot thank you enough for being there! Here’s to a new chapter, adulting here we come!
Whether or not society has handed the adulthood cloak to you, try to keep in mind that "we're just big kids" and "the world's our toy". Don't lock that inner child in you away for good, and let it loose once in a while! There is absolutely no harm in that.?
