Yesterday’s weather was simply glorious!!!! Those of us in Birmingham experienced highs of 28°C or thereabouts, and taking into account the usual British weather, this was nothing short of rare.
On our way back from Church, we ran into a massive padlock outside BMW which Sumbo and I insisted on posing with it. Here are pictures from our Padlock Posing…..

A couple of weeks ago, I was out shopping at Zara and fell in love with a midi, dodger blue pleated skirt. As it sat on the mannequin’s waist with the wind enabling the Marylin Monroe effect it became clear to me. I had to have it. I picked the smallest size I could find and headed straight for the dressing room, but to my detriment even that was too big for my bony waist.
A couple of weeks on and my sister-Gbonju (remember the one from 2 posts ago?)- is sporting the skirt of my pleated fantasy with a plain black tee, a pair of coral KG’s and a DP bag. You have to admit, she’s quite the hottie.
Undoubtedly, every summer demands a new bikini and this year I’ve been obsessing over two very unique collections.
Jason Wu’s Resort 2012 collection reveals his dive into the deep end with his neon-coloured debut pieces. The dark outlines exaggerate feminine silhouettes with the highlighted hues emphasising a pop! Love, love love these pieces.
My second and favourite swimwear obsession has got to be Mara Hoffman’s Resort Swim 2011 Runway. These beautiful indigenous prints take us on an ethical journey of bohemian creativity, they’re amazing. Here are my favourites of the lot. Hope you’re loving these as much as I am…. they’re genius!
