A BLACK DRESS

Happy Wednesday! I am surprised that the whole of last year passed without me wearing this dress. I added the red belt and lipstick to break the monotony of the black color and I am loving the bow too. I look forward to wearing it again soon. And I joined Instagram, show me some love by following.

Yes, I finally succumbed. Show me some love on Instagram. Wish you a great week.

POP OF RED

Happy Wednesday! I had a nice trip to Nairobi and it also gave me a good break from my everyday activities. Well, today I decided to go back to the basics, black and white. I think these are colours that one can never go wrong with. I added some colour by wearing red shoes.

Happy Wednesday! I hope you are having a great week. Well, today I did not have anything planned to wear and this was hastily put together in the morning. Average, I think it will pass. Meanwhile you can admire the large kale :)

DOUBLES

Happy Monday! I trust you had a wonderful weekend. Today I decided to pair some doubles, in the double breasted blazer and double slit skirt. I always find this blazer looking better when belted and therefore I added an Obi belt to define the waist line.






We had heavy downpour last evening and also at night, therefore the need for rain boots which of course gave way to shoes when I arrived at my place of work. It was also quite chilly and a jacket was added to this outfit which I removed later in the mid morning. And I like how the scarf added oomph to the outfit.
A friend commented that I am always in spectacles in all my photos, well I caved in to a request of a shot without the glasses on. I must say I could barely see the photographer lol :)

VINTAGE MINT

Happy Friday! It rained heavily yesterday and I therefore decided to take my photos in town today once the sun is out. This new road provided the right setting for me. I keep falling in love with this dress every time I wear it. Though it has limitations on how it can be worn, but I always have a happy feeling whenever I wear it. I have worn it before here. Today I focused on the navy blue circles on the dress and paired it with the navy blue stockings to make the color pop.





Have a great weekend and see you on Monday.

RED+GREY+BLUE

Happy Wednesday! I realized that it has been awhile since I wore this shirt. I decided to pair it with the grey trouser which by the way has subtle blue and brown stripes. I added a pop of color by wearing the red shoes and belt. The cold months tend to be dull and I therefore almost always add a pop of color to brighten my day.

BROWN + GREY

Happy Easter Monday! I hope you are enjoying the long weekend. Still cloudy and rainy but I will still try to take outfit photos for the blog. The focus on this outfit was the browns and I was surprised that color brown can go well with grey too. I threw in the cropped denim jacket to keep the morning chill at bay.

GOOD FRIDAY

Happy Good Friday! I hope that you are having a relaxed break with your loved ones and of course taking time to celebrate what the occasion is all about, JESUS.

I have worn this outfit before but never had a chance to take photos. Well, today I decided to recycle the look. The look was built around color red. I have also paired this skirt with a white top before here. I look forward to also pairing it with an off color like yellow or even blue.  And I do love the bow at the back of the skirt.

MATCHY

Happy Wednesday and April! The rains are pounding hard and it is only week two and we might have this rainy weather for the next 2 months.

Well, to beat the rains and mud, I bought these rain boots from Bata. I wish I could get them in a color like red or even green . Apparently they only do black and I think it is time Bata did some gumboots with women and fashion in mind. I feel that they are just too plain.

I am surprised that I have never paired this dress top with this denim. I found the subtle pink match in both apparels exciting.I of course had other pairs of shoes to wear once I reach my place of work and added a jacket to the outfit to keep warm.
