Style Challenge with Kendra Thornton

Planning a vacation out of town can be quite hectic especially if you have no idea on what to pack for that particular trip.I believe the first thing that will help you narrow down on the outfits to pack is the location of where you are planning to go,from there you can easily pack your outfits according to the weather and the activities in which you plan to be involved in while you are there.

When Kendra Thornton approached me to give her advice on what she should pack for her Miami trip,I was more than delighted and ready to help her out,so i immediately accepted the challenge.
Kendra Thornton appears as a travel expert on television stations across the country to offer travel tips and deals to millions of people every year. She makes regular appearances on ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC and CW stations in major cities such as New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. She has also made special guest appearances on Fox News, The Nate Show, Fine Living Network and The Tyra Banks Show.

The style challenge is about what to wear for a romantic getaway with her Husband in Miami,she already has booked her accomodation at Hotel Beaux Arts Miami,with the help of Gogobot  she reviewed the different hotels in Miami which  made it easier for her to select and book her accommodation there.

she is looking forward to enjoying  the cuisine at db Bistro moderne,which features the creations of New York Chef of the year Daniel Boulud.She is also looking forward to enjoying Yoga & Sauna at the hotel.She also wants style recommendation on what to wear while going on shopping,spending time with her husband and also soaking up in the sun.

With that information in mind all i could think of is the sun,sand,beach and amazing weather.I put together outfits that are light and comfortable to wear more of summer outfits.Here is what i put together for this particular Style challenge.

Outfit Post:Colour Block yellow chiffon top and Blue capri pants

Hope y'all had an awesome weekend like i did.I had this photos of what i wore taken a while back and the theme around it was on colour block!with yellow,blue and red as you can see.This is a pretty laid back outfit,can be worn to work on dress down fridays though i wouldn't recommend it as the ideal outfit to be worn to a business meeting.

This top i wore can be worn to the office on a normal work day paired with black official pants and also on weekends more so because of the bright colour it can paired with some nice pants.

I love this Capri Pants they are so comfortable.At first when i tried them on  i didnt like them because i wasn't  used to wearing pants that don't go all the way down but my friend convinced me that i look good in them and ever since then,i have been in love with them cant wait to get another pair in a different colour.

I paired up my outfit with these red heels,they add colour to any outfit,these shoes are very comfy and they can be worn to work and also during the weekends.Blue and red blend in together quite well so you can never go wrong with colour blocking the two colours.Sometime back i did a post on colour blocking tips you can check it out,there is a colour wheel that clearly shows how to blend in different colours on the colour wheel.If you are new  to colour blocking, the colour wheel will give you an idea on how to go about it.

 As for make up,i applied black opal liquid foundation and suzie beauty loose powder.To be honest i felt like i had too much make up on although it doesnt look like so on the photos...i decided to just stick to black opal liquid foundation and to be using suzie beauty loose powder when am freshening up my make up  ...applying them both at the same time didn't go well for me.

I decided to keep it simple with the accessories i had on a statement ring and a pair of  pearl bangles.

I will be announcing a giveaway on my next post...am so excited about it...besides its been a long time since i rewarded my readers!so look out for my next post.I leave you with some fun photos courtesy of  George Mo photography
