Step in Style is all about sharing and celebrating stylish people, male or female, whose style is impeccable, those who have mastered the art of being themselves. I consider styling the most basic form of creation. The art of figuring out what you love, consistently embracing it and letting it evolve just as you do is nothing short of magic. In this third edition, I feature Queen Nabilah. I have met her in person during the Blogger’s lunch at Pablo’s and she exudes elegance and confidence. I fell in love with her style on the spot and when I followed her on Instagram, I was simply mind blown. Her style is a breath of fresh air, modest yet very elegant. I hope you draw inspiration from her just as I have.
