Today's outfit is a tie and die material from Egypt. The blouse was a graduation gift from my grandmother. It has been around for now 7 years. Quality material it is. I added a DIY necklace of black and yellow for subtle color.

Hallo! I hope you had a lovely weekend. Mine was wow! Traveled to Kapsabet for the weekend. Arrived quite early and I took the chance to walk around, sample food and visit the thrift market. Actually visiting a thrift market is always part of the program. I bought some good finds. After next weekend's washing you are likely to see me in them in upcoming posts.

I have missed wearing these converse shoes. I have always worn them with jeans trousers. But since I visited codeoverdressed and saw her wear her converse with a dress, I said why not. And therefore today's look.

It rained this morning, heavily so. Much appreciated because the dust was now too much. I definitely took the chance to keep warm while still being chic. And an opportunity to wear a scarf. Not the best pictures though, the weather was too overcast.

Well, red is one of my favorite colors. But since I got into blogging I am now open to more colors and mixing patterns. This sweater top was another super bargain at the thrift market. Goes well with black but I'd one day try and pair it with yellow too. An oh! I like the smudgy camouflage

I hope you had a restful weekend. Mine was spent doing general cleaning. And a bit of rest after a 7 day working is always welcome.This maxi dress was a total bargain and I also got a free scarf from the purchase. Paired it with yellow and a brown belt plus handbag . Bright enough for a sunny day.

Happy Valentine folks! Mom tailored this outfit for me. It was to be my 2013 Christmas gift. I have been away from home and she was not really sure about the measurements especially the hips. And so the gift moved into the new year. Finally she got it ready and presented it to me. Thanks Mom. It was a chilly morning and so the shawl came in handy as an accessory and something to keep me warm. Yes, that's another way of rocking your shawls ladies.

Yipee! The sun is out today. I like the effect the scarf adds to today's outfit. A scarf, belt or statement necklace worn as an accessory is always a plus to any outfit. Try it you will be amazed!

Had a chilly morning though the sun is out now. It has been like that for the past one week. My choice of dressing today is matronly. Something I would consider wearing to church or a parents day meeting. The yellow cheers me up. The shoes are so comfortable and if you are keen you will note that I have been putting them on regularly of late.

Mom has wanted to see me in this dress for a long time now. I could not agree earlier on because the temperatures have been quite high and the material is heavy. It rained last evening and also in the mid morning today. It's a bargain, she gets to see me in it and I also have favorable weather to be chic!

Brownie day it is! I am all earth today. Yesterday was a bit chilly and therefore today I decided to wear a blouse with sleeves as a precaution. It is very light cotton though so no chances of getting cooked in the sun.
