paperbag style Happy weekend, Beauties!

In the words of Wendy Williams, “how you doin?” I’ve been cooped up in my home all day relaxing and binging on the Wendy Williams show. That is my guilty pleasure right there. I just enjoy her chitchat and her excitement about her new life as a divorced woman. It is like a baby that has started crawling. They’re all over the place with animation.

Anywhos…what are you up to? The weather hasn’t been particularly good of late which doesn’t make going out fun. -And as a blogger, it is not good for me because I can’t take photos. Going through my summer archive I realised that I haven’t shared this casual outfit I wore on a weekend getaway in Doncaster. The day was bright and sunny which made the airy white top and printed paper bag waist skirt (old from Shein) a perfect combo. Paperbag style has been on the style map for awhile now. Its one of the trends I wasn’t sure about, but after trying on a pants in Primark over the summer, I was sold. Very slick and appealing when styled right. A style that is also very flattering on curvy women. To create that chic silhouette it is best to tuck in when styling this trend.

Looking at these shots make me miss my braids. I got it removed only after two weeks of having it done. I was tired of the itching, too unbearable. Right now I’m at the stage where I don’t know what to do with my hair and winter is here so I might have it done again. Ha!! Suits me beautifully (if I may say so myself).

Are you keen on this paperbag style trend?

    Your braids were looking beautiful in these photos!
    I love the look of the grid print skirt and the styling at its waist.
    It looks very pretty styled with the airy white boat-neck top and the white trainers.
    You look fabulous in all of your outfit photos!

    I love the black and white vibes, sis. How you doin’? Your braids look so good. Too bad you had to remove them early. Your skirt is absolutely beautiful!

    You should definitely do your hair in braids again. It looks awesome!
    I haven’t tried this trend as I tend to go for more tight fitting clothing. But why not give it a try, right?!

    You look so beautiful in all of these photos! I’ve never tried the paperbag style trend because I wasn’t sure how flattering it would be, but now I want to give it a try. That skirt is really cute and it looks great on you!
