Hey guys, I am back with another collaboration with RedHeadCreativeStudio with my project “Style in Chicago” featuring the best of my personal style captured around the city of chicago. This time, I decided to incorprate another zurikgirl  item.

I am wearing Zurikgirl “Shakara Oloje” Skirt and I turned my over sized button Up shirt into an off shoulder top. If you follow me on my snapchat (@chichi_nneka)  you will understand my love  for reconstructing, tweeking and DIY(ing) all my clothes. This season, I am all about the obvious details like ruffles and layers,  a wrapped waist, a slashed cutout, or an asymmetrical hemline to liven up any look.

We shot this look on the busy intersection of Broadway, a major street in Chicago’s Lake View, Uptown, and Edgewater community area. Random fact: The name of the street was changed to Broadway on August 15, 1913, my birthday is on August 16th. :).  Broadway is the only street in the city of Chicago that does not have a suffix. It is neither a Street, Avenue, Road, Boulevard nor Parkway; known simply as Broadway, how cool!


My shoes are Badgley Mischka, and My purse I purchased from Aldo last summer.






Chicago never gave us the summer we wanted so we planned a trip to Cancun, Mexico to enjoy the sun. Although cancun is a very popular destination for Spring Breakers, there are plenty of great reasons to visit Cancun at any time of the year.  It was perfect timimng to celebrate my friends birthday plus go on vacation since we couldnt during 4th of july weekend our usual summer vaca period.

We stayed at Ocean Turquesa Cancun Resort and the area around and away from the main resort is bursting with historical interest including many sites of other resorts.

As a tropical destination, of course I expected temperatures to soar above 90 degrees, and for the most part it was way hotter than I thought. Cancun is definitely a place for swimsuits, topping up your tan, relaxing on the beach cocktail in hand, or simply chilling by the pool.

Got alot of questions about my hair and swimsuits. our color splash swimsuit is from an independent UK store Stay-Sick you can check them out here For my hair suprisingly it is not Virgin like I ususally do; sometimes I dabble into that syntheic and human fiber blend hair especially when I only plan on keeping it for 2 weeks. My hair is Outre Batik Duo Premium Multi Blend Weave Caribbean Bundle Hair 5Pcs, I bought 2 packs and in toatal it cost me only $38. I found it at my local beauty supply but you can buy it here. My hair is in the color 27 and color 30, the lighter shade ontop. I was able to swim in this hair and also co-wash the hair.

On Saturday we also got the opportunity to experience thee genuine Mexican market, it was a bit overwhelming, becauce everyone wanted to stop us an take pictuers, I guess we looked very American. Me being the tourist I wanted to take pictuers of them. I enjoyed the market trip alot, got to try more local fruit and had one of the best beef tacos ever.

The plan was for me to drive!
I thought it would be like driving a car, I even planned on snapchatting while driving
little did I know it was harder than I thought
After swerving into the main road and crashing into the bush over 10 times. I was told I had to be driven or GIVE UP!! lol….

We participated in diffrent type of Zip- lining. the Best experience was zipling into the river!! for a girl who cant swim I was brave enough to do it.

So far the best part about Mexico to me were the fruits!!!!! I have never tasted anything as fresh or sweet like I did in Mexico. I also fell in love with Dragon friut, Lychee, and Guava. They even had sweet paw paw!!!
