Tall Girls Are Awesome!!!

Woohoo, my blog is one today!!! I’m super excited. It’s funny how my blog and Ishare the same birth month (PS: I didn’t plan for it to be this way lol). I even feel like a mother who has watched her child grow; from suckling on her breasts to talking, walking and growing teeth too! LOL

So, speech time guys *clears throat*

Wow! Tall Girls Are Awesome’s 1st year was an amazing journey. Blogging has taught me so much about myself, passion, growth, ownership and so much technical knowledge. All of the good times, funny posts, inspiring posts, not-so-good posts and the many challenges have taught me so much. I remember writing my first post in my office a year ago and I’m thinking “how time flies!”

Fashion Must-Haves for Summer 2016!

Hey darls,

Thanks for stopping by the blog. I trust you are perfect in the One who loves you. Happy New Month and Happy Belated Birthday to me! Yass, I became a year older on August the 2nd and it couldn’t have been more amazing 😀 (birthday post et pictures loading)

In today’s blog post I’d be sharing every fashionista’s must haves this summer (PS: The recipe of the finger-licking dish in M’s words is in the oven. Don’t think I’ve forgotten! 😉 )

To me and every other person I’m sure, summer time is fun time (And yes, there’s summer even in Nigeria lol). It’s a time to wear all the pastel colors from clothes to shoes, bags, accessories, beach wear…I could go on and on. However, I’d be sharing my favorite pieces which I consider fashion must-haves for you to rock this summer with!

Yay? Let’s roll!

1. A floral dress– Who doesn’t love flowers? Well, I know my mum does! With its bright colors and flowery designs, a floral dress is perfect to wear this summer and for that lunch date too! (sshh, i didn’t say anything)

2. An Ankara top -It’s no longer news that Ankara ti take over LOL. The Ankara fabric is now used for bags, shoes, sandals and even lingerie! I love the Ankara fabric. For that casual look, an Ankara top is always perfect on a jeans trouser with a nice pair of sandals or high heels! Need I say more?

Next up is:

3. The classic white shirt– So I’m not going to say much here. Just have a crisp classic white shirt in your wardrobe, it keeps you winning!

4. Wide legged denim trousers– Inspired from the 70’s, an off shoulder top and a floral top too would look great on a wide legged denim trousers.
