It’s not exactly smart to wear a lot of black on a humid summer day in New York City, but that’s what I did anyway. I wore this outfit to work last Wednesday, and then to the Fabipops and Snapette events that same night. Hope, Alex, and I met a little early so we could take pictures in the West Village, another area that I love. The streets are quiet and the buildings/apartments are so picturesque- if only I could afford to live there!

I’m sure that it won’t surprise you one bit that I love the stars print on this top. When I was introducing myself to Caitlin from the Snapette team later that night and I mentioned the name of my blog, she said “Ah, stars, like your shirt,” and I said “Yes, exactly!” I didn’t really think about my outfit reflecting my blog name until she pointed it out!

        Oh cool. Nice to meet you. I always like to meet fellow Nigerian bloggers.

        • Nice to meet you too! :)

  • Let’s buy a brownstone in the West Village one day. And by buy a brownstone I mean sell our souls for one, haha.

    • Ahhh, if only! *sigh*

  • Such a pretty, simple look. And the dash of color from your shoes is a fun touch. :)

    • Thank you Carrie! I had to bring a little pop of color in there ;)

  • haha you should wear stars to every blogger event to promote yourself! Bummed I couldn’t hang out with you ladies :(

    • Aww, we missed you too! Will I be seeing you at some event next week?
