Look Book || Styling Nude in Autumn – Featuring Toyosi Gregory Jonah


I risked my life for this shoot – Literally. I have a slight phobia for birds. I always get frightened when they begin to flap their wings in flight. So when they get near me I get really jumpy and worried that they will take off. I guess that’s what makes me scared of them. So yes – I risked getting a heart attack for this shoot – Lol. Enough with the drama, let’s get to why I found myself in Central London, the haven of pigeons, in the first place.

Toyosi Gregory Jonah of ToyosiGregoryJonah.com came to town! #NoFurtherExplanationNeeded.

When two bloggers meet, there are two things involved. They either create magic or plan to create magic! I met Toyosi at the Lagos Bloggers Brunch and to my greatest surprise, for the CEO of Desire 1709, a well-known retail store in Nigeria (I mean, celebrities shop with her #MadeWoman), she was extremely down to earth, easy-going, humble and above all loveable. So when she mentioned that she would be in the UK for a few days, I knew we had to meet up – and so we did.

As Autumn was upon us while we were in the process of discussing our style collaboration, we decided we’ll work on a Nude look book that sounded wrong – let’s rephrase. We decided we’ll work on a How to Style Nude Look Book Much better lol.

Nude is not conventionally a colour associated with Autumn. However, it is and will forever be a timeless piece. Nonetheless, to tie it in with the theme of the season, I paired my look with a burgundy skirt to give it that Autumn vibe! Minimal accessorizing is what I love best the multi-metal necklace I wore over my long sleeve turtle-neck bodysuit was all I needed – Plus my staple knuckle rings ^_^.

I finished it off with a pair of snake print heels which did a great job at bringing the whole look together. The dark highlights in the print and the nude background, was all I needed to create the ultimate Autumn Chic look. Perfect for date nights and a girls night around town this season.


Toyosi on the other hand went for a more work style inspired look which in my opinion reflects her personality in every way! For more details on her look and an insight to her side of the story, check out her blog at ToyosiGregoryJonah.com! You won’t regret it – trust me… but for now, here are my outfit details!
