This post contains ONE sponsored item from Tobi.
The team at Tobi contacted me earlier this month to collab and I was so excited to do it. This is the first time in a long time that I’ve wanted to work with a company despite the many offers that come via email. For this collab, I shopped the site for items that interested me and I knew right away that I wanted to create a cute & casual summer outfit for at least one of the looks.
Being an avid online shopper, 80% of my shopping is done online these days, and there’s always some trepidation when buying clothes from a new brand. You never know how the fit will be or how the lengths are cut etc. And being a member of the #talltribe with thick thighs, I’m not built like the average petite woman and it makes it harder to shop confidently from retailers that have not been tried and tested.
I lucked out with Tobi though and one thing I can say is that I love the way the clothes feel on. Comfortable yet chic. A big pet peeve of mine is having to constantly tug on and adjust clothing when I’m out and about and I didn’t have to do any of that with the pieces I received. Also lengthwise on the maxi dress I received was PERFECTION. I can even wear heels with it and I can’t wait to show you that one.
With this Lace-up Top, I paired pair it with something cute, a little edgy but kept it cool and casual, I chose my H&M Leather (faux) Leggings which I bought 3 years ago but never wore (shame) and my caged ALDO sandals. One other way to wear them would be with some dope-looking-futuristic-style-sneaks which I also have but the heels made my legs look fabulous. And I’m also obsessed with caged heels right now so, no brainer.
With these pants I’m wearing being 3 years old, they are no longer available for purchase but there are super cute alternative options if you’d like to create a similar look. The jeggings below, *whispers* (which I just purchased myself) would be a fabulous alternate. Get your edgy style on without doing the absolute most.
Speaking of doing the most, the last photo is kind of an outtake and positive proof that you can’t really take me anywhere if the wind factor is high because that’s when I turn into Veyonce!! Can’t tell me nothing and there’s no stopping me! LOL!
