Lady On Staycation

Hi guys,

Our big giveaway would be next week and would be open for two weeks after which the winners would be selected, so I hope you are all subscribing and liking the facebook page, (click here to like).

I had a chilled out and lovely weekend, hope you did too or at least had more fun. My favourite female housemate in the Big Brother Africa house, Tanzania’s Feza survived eviction, I did a bit of shopping for… (would keep you posted on that soon), and yes, I am psyched and pumped for the week.

Our feature today is a working lady who decided to take time off and for a staycation. I didn’t even know that was a real word till recently. It basically refers to a period where one decides to stay off work and generally do the kind of recreative and leisure stuff you would ordinarily do during a vacation, but within driving distance to your home.

Here goes..

Nkechi Madueke-Akunyili
Occupation: Wireline Engineer for Halliburton 
Interests: Traveling and Reading epic novels.

Top: Forever 21
Skirt: Limited
Bag: Michael Kors
Belt: Macy’s
Style – Seasonal Black
Inspiration – Me Myself and I. Today was day 1 of my staycation so I decided to have some me-time (for just a few hours though), motherhood has no break period you know. Anyway, yes I was simply inspired by that.

Top: Zara
Pants: Zara
Shoes: Steve Madden
Style –  Sophisticated
Inspiration – Walking. Today was so beautiful. I took a long walk with my lovely husband all evening. All chilled out, talking, laughing, eating and all that good stuff. 


Jacket: New York & company
Top: Forever 21
Pants: Zara
Slippers: Steve Madden
Bag: Louis Vuitton

Style – Chilled
Inspiration – Little bossman. My day did not start till I went to pick up my son from his nursery. I was inspired my his white/black outfit so I did same but added green. Lol.


Jacket: Bar III
Dress: DKNY
Slippers: INC
Scarf: Zara
Belt: BCBG
Boogie: Britax
Style – Funky Chic
Inspiration – Same as yesterday, my son. His pants inspired my jacket (matching, lol), his boogie and jacket inspired my scarf.


Jacket: Zara
Top: Cache
Pants: Zara
Bag: Michael Kors
Shoes: Nine West
Style – Business casual
Inspiration – Mummy. I just felt like looking serious, chilled and glam all at the same damn time. Like my mum. So there goes. I think my son was pleased with this because that can only explain his degree cheese in the picture.

Top: Old Navy
Pants: Aeropostale
Shoes: Nine West
Bag: Louis Vuitton
Scarf: Zara
Boogie: Britax
Style – Trendy

Inspiration – Editorials. So today I decided to recreate a look I have seen quite a number of times but in my own way.

Dress: Zara
Shoes: Banana Republic
Bag: Zara
Scarf: Zara
Style – Chic
Inspiration – In anticipation of my new home. So I am moving houses and cities and was just looking at pictures of our new house before I dressed up today.
This is my last look for my feature and I want to thank my husband immensely for all these pictures. 🙂

Last look but definitely not the least. She got all the frames we desire on metrogypsie in Sunday’s look. Thank you so much Nkechi for letting us have you on here.

Before I sign out for the week, I want to share something.
Yesterday evening I Beyonce posted this picture on her instagram of her and I was like BAM! She definitely looks at my page. Like..

I mean, we both bared our midriffs, both of us are wearing 2-piece clothing, both midi skirts, both in shades, I mean, all ‘hateration’ asides guys, there’s something here. Well, with siblings, such happens. Guess what again self? Both our outfits are Topshop!!!

By the way, my picture was taken 4 weeks ago (with the caption “Bow Down B*tches, from a Bey song), you can check my instagram (@JauneLion) to confirm. *Phew* just thought to keep y’all abreast anyway. Also, our feature this week, Nkechi is a huge Bey stan so yes, its all damn apt.

As promised last week, the dates for the give-away are 17 June – 30 June, 2013.

Do leave a comment below as usual on your favourite look and if time permits you, create a look of your own inspired by the outfits above.  A winner would be picked by Nkechi who would then wear the look in a follow-up post (coming soon).

Have a great week people.
