Hello beautiful ones of the Most High! I trust you all had a great weekend are nothing but ready for the new week ahead, it’s going to be awesome. You are winning and making progress. It’s been a while since I worked on a personal post and so I decided to start the week off with one instead of the usual Monday Male Feature post. I will get back to the Male Features next week, sorry ladies. 

Can you believe the year is almost over? Wow. I won’t lie, it hasn’t been all amazing but I am so grateful for what I have achieved thus far- I will be sharing some of these with you real soon, before the year ends. One of the many things I have learnt this year is to celebrate all my victories even the small ones. I feel like sometimes I get so overwhelmed with life and what is happening that I do not take time to celebrate my achievements and progress. People are different and some will prefer to only look at the big victories but I decided to look at everything, its all progress after all.

For those of you who have been religiously following my blog you know that I am not a fan of winter and the only reason I make it through is firstly because of Jehovah and secondly because of the winter fashion, lol. I love the colours and the coats, especially the coats! I could live in coats and gloves all winter. I made it through winter alive and well and right into warmer weather….summer is my favourite. Yes it does get unbearably hot sometimes but I will pick summer over winter any day..

It has been a couple of weeks of warm weather that I have been enjoying and I have managed to put a couple of cute outfits together. I am not one to follow every single trend and try it out, I wear what I think looks good on me and what I am comfortable in. Some pieces are just timeless and you can wear them over and over again without feeling like you are behind in fashion. Fashion is really an expression of oneself, it all comes down to the person and their expression of themselves through the clothes they put on. Something that might not make sense to you in terms of fashion makes a lot of sense to another person… so, do you!

I love expressing my personality and my moods through my clothes. Several times my outfit is determined by how I am feeling on a certain day. For example on a day I am feeling very tired or unwell one might be able to pick that up by looking at my outfit. Other times I may be feeling a little low and I pick out a outfit that will change my mood. It is really amazing what clothes do for me, lol. A friend of mine always laughs at me and teases me about my love for clothes and all that, fashion tings, lol.  

African prints are everything and more! I absolutely love all manner of African print.  I would not mind living in African print clothes all day everyday, no exaggeration. Just imagine African print everything? African print underwear, furniture as well, wow A DREAM! LOL. Is that too much? Ok moving right along. Fashion from different eras as far back as the 50s excites me and sometimes I try to bring my love for fashion in those eras into my outfits now. Vintage fashion has become extremely popular and I have also tapped into that and will not be turning back thank you very much. More Graca Finds birthed from my love for vintage aims on providing clients with timeless pieces to make them stand out in a crowd. 

This is only the beginning of summer and I cannot wait to share more of my colourful, bold, unique outfits with you. Keep scrolling for more pics. Till next time beautiful ones, you are making progress and winning everyday!
