‘Too opinionated for the pacifists, too out of touch to be in style, too broke for the rich kids, I don’t know what normal is’ – Miguel
Dress – Jumia | Bag – Kate Sapde NY | Heeled Sandals – Miskay Boutique
Miguel’s new album just came out and I think it is fantastic. Just a great mix of RnB and toned down rock music.
One of the songs on the album, ‘What’s normal anyway’, hit me in such a weird spot. The pressure to conform and fit into a box is something I struggle with everyday at work and at home. I’m not the typical news editor in my office, I an not the good yoruba girl my mother wants me to be and I am apparently just a bit weird. But really, what is normal? Who defines what normal is for everyone?
Well, them rules don’t apply to me.
I got this dress from Jumia on a whim and gosh, I love it. I expected it to be a free flowing maxi but it became a tight midi dress as I put it on. Here’s me thinking I lost too much weight.
I wanted to keep the look simple which is why I paired it with my favorite simple heels and my Kate Spade NY bag. Simple stays winning.
