FFR1-Yellow Fever

Hey Loves! I’m Funmi Ajayi and I welcome you to my first blog post which is also the first of a series I will be doing called “Funmi in the Fitting Room” (FFR). Alongside juggling a masters in forensic accounting, personal , spiritual life and a Youtube channel (which I recently started), I decided to share my love for fashion by starting a Blog!

I have always loved putting items of clothing together, I get compliments from family and friends on the way I dress. Therefore, I have decided to be selfless (selfless….really? LOL, yes. Only because I have got mad love for you all) and, share my style with you my loves. For the FFR series, I walk into any high street clothing store, fix up an outfit and take selfies to share with you guys.

Yellow Fever” was inspired by the colour of the outfit, (obviously Funmi!). It was literally the first phrase that came to mind when I was thinking of a name for this post. Bright colours are trending this  year, especially Yellow and, trust me anyone! I repeat, anyone! can totally slay in this colour. Personally it makes me feel like a ray of sunshine. You would literally light up anywhere you walk into.

I first saw the blazer and trousers online and fell in love as I have been a little too obsessed with the colour yellow. I show you two ways to rock the clothing items.

Crop top with trousers:

This look, you can totally rock with a pair of trainers or sandals. It can be worn for any event you would consider informal. You wanna go badass on them? throw on a pair of shades, done!

With a Blazer:

For the next look I threw on a blazer, basically went ham on the yellow (yes please!). I would wear this to work with a pair of heels, yellow maybe? LOL. In my opinion yellow goes with anything so be creative and try any other colour in heels.
