The weather is still overcast. My photographer (read my Dad) has traveled. These pictures are taken by my brother Victor. Since we stay in different locations, Siaya town is always the compromise photo location.
I love the water color flowers on the dress top and these wedges are just awesome. They go well with almost any outfit. Enjoy your weekend folks.

 While looking for better lighting, I ended up at a tiny dump site. Not the best background but that is part of art in a photo. I went with many shades of green to khaki in this outfit. Layering lightly to keep warm and not get cooked in the heat of the day.

Today I went blue and a pop of red. The skirt am wearing today always creases and therefore it is rarely worn, just for that reason. We currently have lots of sunshine during the day and heavy rains either late in the evening or at night. Really makes choosing an outfit difficult. There's always the extra sweater in the bag to keep warm in case of rains in the evening.

Well, still lots of work in the farm but I will try to  make a posting each day for the next two weeks if time allows. Enjoy your weekend folks.

Sorry folks I have been quite busy in the farm of late and I have not been consistent with my posts.
Today the denim takes center stage, the details are everything in this simple outfit. The eyelets on the skirt make it just awesome.

Hallo folks, I trust you had a great weekend. Mine was equally great and the icing on the cake was Arsenal winning the FA cup. I am an ardent supporter of Arsenal FC.
Today's outfit again features this patterned skirt that I have found to be very versatile. I believe it can go with any combination. This was yesterday's outfit. Very official in starting the week. And ooh! these shoes are the most comfortable high heeled sandals.

I really wanted to wear high heeled open shoes with this outfit. That had to change, I don't like getting wet toes when it rains, which has been the case of late. So i grudgingly wore these closed shoes, and am still on the search for high heeled red, green, yellow and blue shoes. Well, until then...Enjoy your weekend folks.

This is another outfit I have worn before but never got an opportunity to take pictures of. Well, here it is today. The polka dot blouse is a size 14 and am a size 10. I did not check or try it at the thrift market. I love it and therefore being a wrap blouse I play around with the belts to give me an almost perfect fit.

The weather was awful this morning. Too much rainfall last night and an overcast morning. I only managed these two shots. Other than the sweater and shoes all is old in this outfit with more than 5 years of wear. Burgandry is quite a rare color and believe me the skirt color is a perfect match with the flowers on the blouse hidden in the sweater. Next time maybe a repeat in warm weather.

Well, the cold rainy weather is still here and because of the heavy nature of African print I find this outfit suitable. Really no need of adding a sweater to the outfit which can be a burden when the sun comes out.

I added the knitted poncho. This is a great bargain I bought over a year ago. Would want to wear it over a bikini at the beach. A girl can dream, right?

Happy Monday folks. Finally favourable weather for my socked up look. And the skirt am wearing today is so versatile I wear it so many ways and it never disappoints. With time I will incorporate one outfit many ways just to show how you can wear a single wardrobe item many times without getting into a routine.

Another cold morning. This outfit is incomplete, I had planned to include socks with it, black socks. I feared the sun might be out later in the day and therefore dropped the idea last minute. Next time, the cold weather is still here anyway.
 I wish you a great weekend.
