It’s been a whole month since the lockdown was declared in Nigeria and it’s been hard keeping it together. I can’t be the only one who has lost track of the days. The sheer level of uncertainty that plagues us has left most people wondering – could this be our new normal?

Nonetheless, I’m thankful for the little things like power supply, semi-steady internet, tons of recipes to try out, the occasional workout routine, birthday and meeting reminders, friends and family, and overall good health.

Today’s post features the start of a new “colour series”. Here I’ll be sharing some of my favourite colour combinations over time. Let’s talk red & pink, shall we?

What I’m Wearing

Xhilaration top (oldie but goodie) || River Island skirt || Earrings (gifted) || OFFICE strappy heels

Feel free to accessorize this look with neutrals such as black and white, jewel tones, or whatever rocks your boat.
If you haven’t already, will you be trying this colour mix?

This colour combination sure looks good. I honestly never thought to try colour tones so close together. Seeing how this looks, I’m sure I will. Looking forward to more suggestions.

    Hello A,

    I felt the same way too until I tried it and it’s safe to say it turned out great!

    Can’t wait to see you try it.

Ooooo this is beaut! I’d try something as bright as this to an event where I’d really want to stand out, so I can get all eyes on me!!! 😁

    I hope I’m there to witness it live and direct LOL!

    Thanks for stopping by.

I love the combination and I love that you give options of shades for other skin tone types…melanin popping here

    Hello Azumme,

    Thank you for stopping by, I hope to see you rock it.

The combination is very nice.. I stay away from color combination so much that the only combo I do is black plus any color. I’d definitely love to try this. Thanks J.

    Joanne · April 28, 2020 at 8:54 pm

    Thanks Ifeoluwa!

    I completely understand how you feel but keep an open mind.

    Thanks for stopping by.

Firstly I love the simplicity of your page that makes it so warm to keep coming back to read some more…
As for these colours above, only fine girls can rock this look🤪🤪🤪.
I will humour you and try it out though.

Faithyy · May 2, 2020 at 11:59 am

Hmmm I’m not sure if I’m brave enough to rock it. But you look so good. Love it on you 😍😍😍

    Joanne · May 3, 2020 at 3:15 pm

    Hello Faith,

    Don’t knock it till you try it… thanks for the love.

These combos look daring. I will try one and hope it works. Fingers crossed

    Joanne · May 11, 2020 at 6:07 pm
