ATHLEISURE ~ #OOTD


Hi darlings.

How have you all been? Me? I’ve been doing incredible at whatever point I found myself. Lol! (So, incredibly good, bad, lazy, busy and so on and forth).


In today’s #whatiwore bit. Let me just say it’s a mix of two of my personalities. The tomboy who has been with me through my teen years and left after I turned 17, leaving 20 percent residue. There’s also the sensual one who I discovered was inside me all the while but like a flower, it had to bloom.

And boy, did she bloom???


Anyways, long story short! I feel in love with this track pant because of the red and white ‘fuwazu’ detail on the side. Another enabling factor was the price. I snagged it for 1000 Naira only. (Still sleeping on thrift?) check my store @oddsandcool on Instagram to get your thrift fits.

I didn’t want to go the normal athleisure route with this look so I opted to pair the pants with something else I love. Lingerie! This happens to be a silk play suit like lingerie. I love the feel, cook and how it drapes romantically. It’s so fluid it’s a sin.

Also, to tone up the feminine ante a bit I decided to free these babies. Slapped on a nude lipstick and accessories.

I chose these statement earrings because apart from the obvious part that it’s a thing of beauty, the gold part of it brought some illumination to my outfit. 💕


I couldn’t have thought of a better hair style to rock this with than my natural fro! I’m in awe of how much character my fro possesses. 🌸

Now, I don’t want to try and imagine this look without the appropriate shoes to go with it. Whether it be sneakers, slides or heels. It has to be the appropriate shoes. These white stilettos did the damn thang for me.

I hope you guys like this look? Tell me your favorite part of the ensemble and what you’d have done or worn differently?

Love, Bennymakachi!

      Thank you, Praise. I think so too. It’s actually not a dress but a flimsy lingerie o can’t wear alone.

      Hahaha! I can relate when you thrift an item and think you overpriced it (although it’s till a fraction of what you’ll dish out to get the new lesser quality ones). Lol! You should totally go for it. Looking forward to reading your post on it. Thank you! 😊
