Friday ootd : Sporty chic Goon


The last time this skirt made an appearance on my blog, it was styled with a white off the shoulder top, some gladiator sandals and a very poorly fed afro puff held back by a headband I have since banished from my belongings. I know I want to try this girly girl thing but floral? really? It might have worked with bigger hair but the look was downright mediocre and for what it was worth, I didn't do it any justice. Seriously, that thing cost me an arm and a leg, it was the only skirt of its kind at the time, what was I supposed to do?



Look, I have to try this clubbing thing, do it right and see if I enjoy it. I don't want to be 30 tal'mbout 'Turn uuup!!'. nah, I need to get this out of my system now. . .you know, after I find it, that is if its even in there. What is ''it'' vele? smh

Well, I'm glad to say that its back and has give me my moneys worth.This time, I styled it with this loose mesh tee I picked up from Mr price the other day. I made a mental note to keep the price tag on at the time because I honestly did not know how I was going to make it work. It reminded me of those mesh vests abo knife wielding malume goons pair with those blue pants except, you know, bigger holes. I really hated those, handwashing them is no joke! Anyways, it was only when I tried it on with some stuff from legit when I actually saw that it could work. Now I'm praying I find a  black one. It would just be. . .yeeeses!!












Now the plan for this outfit was to wear it on campus during the day, shoot as many clips as I possibly can for my upcoming ''I need advice'' social experiment series, turn up edition and transition it into a night time clubbing outfit, vlog it and have a chit chat video about my experience.  Look, I have to try this clubbing thing, do it right and see if I enjoy it. I don't want to be 30 tal'mbout 'Turn uuup!!'. nah, I need to get this out of my system now. . .you know, after I find it, that is if its even in there. What is ''it'' vele? smh. See why I need to do this 'I need advice' series? The art of turning up is not one to be gone into as blindly as I did today when I rocked up alone, without a game plan, without a squad and without a hype. There was no performance lineup, no flyers, fokol! I didn't even make it into the damn place.  *sigh* Go ahead, laugh at me. I know you want to. I failed. Again.
That's kinda how I managed to get time to even write this post.

So here I am, sporty chic goonin, right pumpkin flourishing and all that.  I think they call this Femdrogyny. I might write about it and my tomboy rock chick phases when i was younger.

Are you caving the shoes though? I Don't know what they are called but combat boots took away from the sporty look I was trying to go for.  These kinda say 'yeah I'm chilled but if sh*t pops off, I'm ready to 
a) pop off too.
b) run. Thats right, run. Our racist neighbours dog ensure my daily training. You know, white people, we're going to have to talk about your dogs eventually.
These I picked up at legit. Now the only Thing missing from my little creation is my knobkerrie Malcolm X the enforcer. I hope I find I soon.
So what do you think? how would you have styled this top and skirt?

Stay blessed. . .I mean by God or the universe. Although I'm not one to judge if you prefer a worldly blesser. Okay, I need a new ending phrase. help?

    1. my pleasure and thank you also. I love how versatile these skirts are. You can put on some flats for a casual look, make it sporty with some loafers or sneakers of dressy with some strappy heels. Thanks for stopping by.
