My Wardrobe Essentials: Plain Basic T-shirts.

journeyofstyle t-shirts  journeyofstyle t-shirts

Sometimes I just prefer a simple look, and basic t-shirts make my everyday look with a pair of super skinny jeans so much more, at least for me anyways. Since it's cold at the moment I like to layer them  with a vest or a body underneath and a cardigan or blazer on top. I prefer loose and baggy t-shirts but occasionally I don't mind fitted ones. I love the colour grey, white and black. Some of my favourite places for basic t-shirts are Zara, ASOS, COS and H&M. The t-shirts in the pictures above are both from COS.

Jacket - Ebay
Top - Primark
Jeans - H&M
Shoes - Zara

A little impromptu outfit of the day, so all I have are a couple of decent-ish pictures after applying filters. This jacket is a recent purchase from ebay and a real bargain. The jacket was just £16 (inc. p&p) but took forever to arrive because it was from Hong Kong. Just got tired of wearing boots and decided to add a bit of colour to my outfit with these orange Zara wedge shoes and a pop of orange lipstick. Today was my day off uni and work but did I get any rest? Nope! Had to run some errands and go to an appointment. I wish I could have a duvet day where I can just stay in my PJs all day, eat and browse the internet...wishful thinking lol. Anyways going to go multitask now by painting my nails and doing some reading for tomorrow's lecture. Hope you all had a lovely day.


What I Heart Today #3: ASOS ATHENS Leather Chelsea Ankle Boots

journey of style Gloria Omale ASOS ATHENS Leather Chelsea Ankle Boots

I did a couple of "picks of the day" a while ago and I've decided to start doing them again but now under the title "what I heart today". I love this Chelsea boots from ASOS and they might just be my next purchase. They will be perfect as everyday boots for uni and running errands. Most of the boots I own have heels, so this will be a perfect change. I love that it has a little bit of masculinity to it. Will let you all know if I buy it. 


Birthday Dress Ideas.

 journey of style Gloria Omale ASOS Sequin Cowl Back Dress

Was just browsing earlier for a birthday dress and I thought I'd share some of the ones I liked on here. It's my birthday next week on Thursday and I'm trying to banish early birthday blues with a little retail therapy. I don't really like celebrating birthdays, I usually always feel down and think about not being where I want to be at that stage in my life insteading of looking at some of positive achievements. This year I'm doing the usual dinner with the family. I want a nice dress that I will hide a food baby if I indulge a little too much. At the moment I'm leaning towards dress number two from Motel Rocks. It's everything I like in's black, short, has leather accent and best of all there's peplum going on...WIN. Anyways whatever I end up wearing, I will blog it. Hope you all had a lovely day though.


Happy New Year!!

Happy new year dolls! It's been a while and I have actually missed blogging but my masters degree has been kicking my butt. It's so much more work than I thought so I've had to stop blogging for a while but one of my new year's resolution is to blog more, atleast twice a week. Sorry about the quality of the pictures but I took them earlier when I was heading out and it's gets dark from around 4pm in the UK at the moment. My foundation is really not that light, it's the flash from the camera. But anywho just wanted to wish you a happy new year and hello to my new followers.
