OOTD: Oy Vey!

Hey dolls!

Wa gwan? Friday is upon us (YAAAAAAASSSSSSSS) so I just wanted to share a cheeky little OOTD. I really need to do these more often, but now that I’ve moved thousands of miles away/have no friends, I have nobody to take pics of me. So hey any readers in Accra who want to be my new photographer, please contact me. Please note you will need to buy me daily fried plantain. Shout out to my BFF/photographer Miss Fu- I MISS YOU.

Anyhoo I digress. This is one of my favourite outfits. I work in digital marketing, so even Monday-Thursday doesn’t really call for strictly corporate wear. But I never met a pencil skirt I didn’t like, so I tend to dress up a bit for 4 days and then go casual on Fridays. Let’s get into this relaxed Friday slayage…

So the petit jacké is from Primark (where else). I featured it and my M&S jeans in a previous post. I love the pop of colour from the jacket, and the fit of the jeans… sigh. These jeans are everything I didn’t know I needed in life. Handbag is from H&M and my faux leather sandals are also from Primark. Pretty sure the entire outfit cost less than your Tesco meal deal lunch.

But my fave part of this outfit is the “Oy Vey” vest I picked up from Forever 21 last summer in Vegas! I say all the time that I’m a Jewish grandmother in a Ghanaian diva’s body. I’m always napping, asking male friends when they’re going to settle down with a nice girl, and saying things like “ooh I’m working up quite a schvitz.” So I yelped when I saw this vest. Love it.

So yah when work is over on Friday, just throw off your jacket, pop your hip and go! I would normally add a splash of red lippie, gold hoop urrings and a pair of cute animal print heels. And you’re ready to flee the office! For added #WinningAtLife points try hanging your jacket on your chair and slinking out. Nobody will know you left early!

Ooh and if anyone wants to know about my hair (you should, because it’s fabulous), these are crotchet braids by my beloved hairstylist Cofo (based in North London). I dream it, and she always executes it to perfection! Check out her blog, and holla if you want her digits!

So what’s your go-to Friday outfit boo?

Love,
Adjpants

  2. Noting: totes adorbs “Oy Vey!” look just in time for High Holy Days. There is realness to this Jewish Nana thing yo (yo and oy: mirror images. Discuss). Finding this friendless thing hard to believe however. L’Shana Tova!

  3. DAH-LINK! This outfit is EVERYTHING and a bag of potato chips! My god, why didn’t I get that top too? You know we’re old Jewish nannas from way back! Looking absolutely effervescent and that hair is gorgeous. I am now on a quest to grow out my bob and long, lustrous hair again xxxx
