Outfit || YN inspired

I love Yvonne Nelson, I absolutely do. With all my heart. I have this thing in my head that makes me think we look somewhat alike. Lol, crazy. I stalk her Instagram, Facebook…everything! Came across this look of her a few weeks back. And I was like, “Cool! Wish I had this awesome Mickey shirt dress”. End.

Or so I thought.

Fast forward to that morning, a few days ago, day 2 of Lagos Harmattan. The closest thing to Winter we have here. Even though it lasts just a few days these past couple of years. (Blame global warming) We enjoy it the best we can.

It is 7:50 and I’m already calculating how much time it will take me to run from OPH to TBS. (Hostel to class) Mr Mike will lock the door at 8:09:59. No mercy. And I’ll be doomed to miss my Morbid Anatomy class for the day.

Still in my undergarments, I grab the first thing I see that has sleeves. (No need to show off my white harmattan-ridden arms). And the nearest comfortable shoes, and I’m off.

 I get to class and receive more compliments than I thought I’ll get from a dress I wear indoors mostly. A classmate was going through my phone and is like, “hey! You stole YN’s look!” Lol. I didn’t realize.

So after class, I pull out my old sneaks (that look somewhat like what she has on) and even older friends (that I had to bribe with snickers) and convince them to take a few pictures.


Lol, it was fun. I hope Yvonne Nelson reads this. Better still, I hope she likes it.

I hope you guys like this too!
Plus, I’m loving this elsas pro moisturizing lipgloss on me. It’s all I’ve been wearing since this weather got my lips cracking up.

Love and makeup, Ella
