OOTD : Peplum + Burnt Orange Bodycon (Slay On A Budget)

Hi loves! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I hope you enjoy this post and you stick around. I wore this outfit to church last Sunday. The top and skirt are recent buys and they were unbelievably cheap. I absolutely love bodycon midi skirts - 1) because of the high waist that hides my belly fat and 2) because the material just amplifies my not so obvious curves 3)because they are so versatile; you can dress them down and dress them up and 4) because Shirley B Eniang wears them alot.  The moment I saw this burnt orange body con skirt on the hanger at Calliope at Dereboye, I just had to have it and they were having sales so it was just 6.95TL. 

The black peplum top is also from Calliope and it was 19.95TL. Peplums also hide your belly fat and give the illusion of a small waist and full hips. I love the leather detail on the flare of the top. My black Calvin Klein thick heeled sandals were a gift from my Mom, thank you ma! The heels are really comfortable and you can wear it for hours with no discomfort. My orange bag was a Christmas gift I got last year from a colleague for Secret Santa, not sure where exactly it's from but it's Micheal Kors. For accessories, I'm wearing the Omega Deville ladymatic watch in yellow gold and matching yellow gold studs. 

You will have to excuse the cluttered backgrounds and constant photo bombing because it wasn't a planned shoot just random pictures after church I thought I would share with you guys. My makeup is nude and natural, I'm into nude lips a lot these days. As for my hair, I'm currently wearing a weave (read a review here) so I just styled it in a low pony tail with side bangs. 

To slay on a budget, you just need to take advantage of sales and discounts! I always shop during sales, no shame in that. What do you think about my outfit, honestly? Thanks for reading till the end. Please subscribe and follow the blog if you haven't. Stay awesome!
