I’m sorry for neglecting my style posts for the longest time, it’s mostly because I assumed that you enjoyed my ‘deep’ posts more. I also don’t think I’m the most stylish person, when compared to fashion bloggers who you can probably learn more from, but I received a comment this week requesting more style posts, and who am I to ignore. That was my cue to bring back style posts, and here’s the first one after several months. Hope you like it!
You’ve most likely seen this dress worn by a lot of people on Instagram lately. Personally, I spent a lot of time drooling over the dress on the web, contemplating if I should get it or not, especially after seeing Kiitana do it justice. Just when I got over my dress crush, my awesome friend surprised me with it (Look at God!). The fact that she got the same dress in a different colour while we were on vacation made us go out, look cute and take pictures in our matching outfits. You know, just to utilise the purchase effectively.
The dress is a Bardot Florals Shirred Tulip Hem Dress (quite a mouthful), and although you can purchase it from various sites, I recommend this link. I was too lazy to think about accessories when I wore the dress, that’s why it is paired with only a nice pair of light pink sandals from Forever21. If you are feeling more glam, you can wear a chunky necklace, bracelets with heels, and your look will be elevated. Continue reading “A touch of Floral Please?”
Welcome to Hazy Fantasies, I’m glad you stopped by today. It’s not officially summertime but it might as well be, the weather already feels like summer, I’m out of school and I feel light-hearted. I decided a while ago to switch up some things this summer. Try hopping on a few trends, explore new states or cities in the U.S.A, get back to reading novels, and most importantly, relax. Let’s see how I’m doing…
From the above list, the first thing I did was try a new hair color, I was indecisive on purple or burgundy, but you can see what color I went with in the end. I love how well the burgundy hair suits my skin tone, the curly hair is a plus. I also wanted to get into head wraps and bandanas this summer. Fortunately, I got some from Perade (my favorite store to shop for African accessories). I love the pink color of this bandana, and the pattern on it is icing on the cake. Just for the purpose of looking glam, I packed my hair into a side bun, and added some hoop earrings. What do you think of the look? Do you think I did justice to the bandana or it did justice to me?

Hi everyone, welcome back to another style post. It’s been long since I did one of these (let’s hope I remember how). I was inspired by Jennifer Amani when I saw a dashiki look on her Instagram some days ago. I got this vibrant green dashiki from Perade (my favourite African store) and you can purchase yours via this link or through their Instagram.
For my first style, I paired my green dashiki with a pair of leggings and black flats. Nothing fancy, just a causal look that was worn to class. The picture was taken a year ago, as you can see I was looking like a baby girl.

Hi guys! I know you’re probably thinking, ‘why is this talkative posting again?’, but this one is to your advantage, especially the lovebirds. As you know, love is in the air, and valentine’s day is exactly one week away. I wasn’t inspired to style an outfit for the day, mostly because I never do anything , it’s just a regular day for me. However, I couldn’t help but fall in love with this outfit I saw Zaria of (http://www.adoseoffab.com/), wear in her latest post.

Hey guys! Welcome to Hazy Fantasies. I really appreciate you taking your time to check out my blog. My 18th birthday was this past Saturday, and for this, my girlfriends and I had a photoshoot! Although everything seems perfect in this picture, it was a struggle making this shoot come to life, but I am happy with how it all turned out #findthegood. I also want to give a huge shout out to all my amazing friends! I don’t know what I would do without you guys.
This post is all pictures, so relax and enjoy the view. All the pictures were taken by my friend, Laolu (his Instagram is Laoluade) Continue reading “Birthday diaries”
Remember back in high school when we were forced to wear school uniforms? I won’t be wrong if I was to say that almost everyone was against this concept, will I?. I know my friends and I were not having it. We would try to shorten our school skirts, be fancy with our school cardigans or do anything to feel like we weren’t trapped in uniform. Continue reading “Would you still wear school uniforms?”

I was so in love with this comfy dress when I first got it for just 5 bucks!! Literally $5 from a thrift vendor. God bless that girl!
I was stunting in it all day when I first wore it. You know that feeling when you just add something new to your wardrobe and everything feels right in the world, that was what I was feeling and the compliments I got cause of the dress was making me feel like I was one fashionista.
