SUMMER COUNTDOWN…

Summer Countdown | The Alma Chronicle

Despite the gloomy weather and occasional visit of rain in Toronto, the countdown to summer is officially on! I think I’m more amazed at how fast the year is going by, I mean, it’s June already. Wow!

With the days longer and and the intake of Vitamin D in rather excess dosage, which I’m not complaining, my mood and style choices are generally lighter and more jolly during the Summer season.

There’s no saying what my Summer ’17 style is all about yet, but expect to see lots of colours and minis.

Currently, I’m obsessing over pastel pieces like this top – the colour is just the perfect blend of summer and bright but yet still minimal. Lately, I’ve also been caught rocking the mini skirts very often – this is one of those trends I’m glad has made a comeback. It offers a cute alternative to denim shorts. And after all, if the days are getting longer and brighter, its only right for the skirts to get shorter. Don’t tell my mum I said that..

The beauty of this outfit, I’ll say is in the little tweaks. From a regular shirt worn backwards with some buttons undone, to the frayed hem of the mini denim skirt, a rather simple outfit has been transformed into a a chic, yet edgy look.

Finished off the look with perspex heels and a black and white stripe clutch purse for a subtle dose of contrast.

What do you guys think of the mini trend? Let me know down below!

Till next time,

  • Lately, I’ve been lacing my personal pep talks with a hint of arrogance, it has become necessary for the days my well of motivation dries out #notsorry 💫 {P.S Instagram actually tried it 😒}

  • Today, I realised that I’ve been juggling a full time job and a side hustle effectively for the past 7 months. I’m usually my biggest critic and never one to pause and appreciate all my victories, instead I’m always wondering “what’s the next thing I can do?” But today I’m giving myself a pat on the back for the sleepless nights, fruitless trips and unanswered proposals because guess what? I’m constantly pushing and putting in effort towards my goals & like @fisayolonge said, “While I wait, I will not fear” 😊 #celebratingeverything | 📸: @samuelobi
