Smart and Sporty

Happy new week guys, I can already see September …. the year is going by so fast.

Off recent i’ve been doing more recycling, going through my closet, my mum’s too and trying to create something something new from old / and unworn pieces. I’m loving it so far …would be sharing more of my pieces and recreation with you.

This vest/jacket was formerly a jacket with really high shoulder pads (the olden days type) , found it among my mum’s things , it was big but i couldn’t slimfit cos the sleeves were tight …the tailor said she would have remove the sleeves , slimfit and reattach new sleeves. 
That seemed like a lot of work, i just cut off the sleeves and hemmed it. (apologies already cut off the sleeves before i got a picture) 

I was going for a smart sporty look paired the vest with a black top, highwaisted white pants(thanks Harriet) and sneakers.  This look can be worn pretty much everywhere , love the fact it’s sexy and smart at the same time.

Notice my my new hair, short box braids aka bob braids are so in right now. Looking for a new hairdo you should totally try this out.
Till next time

Style formula: Vest + shirt + pants + sneakers = Sporty Smart

Lots of love

    Looking good… I love the hair style but I hate the fact that is everywhere…. I don't like looking like everyone else.
