SHEER BLACK + RED

Happy Wednesday! A black and red combo is always classy and I think it is a necessary wardrobe staple. This skirt is another new item I got at the thrift market. The embroidery on the hemline is amazing. I accessorized with silver just for fun.

BLACK, BROWN, GREY

Happy Monday!I hope you had a restful weekend.This dress is another addition to my closet. First time I am wearing it and I see it being in heavy rotation. On this day it was chilly and I did some layering. I however, look forward to wearing it in the summer without any layering. The straps at the back were missing and I think that is why it stayed longer at the skirt pile in the thrift market. The creative in me did not see that as a reason not to buy it, I instead bought a shoelace to use as a strap :). I am totally in love with the embroidery detail on the dress and the hemline, very classy!

And I also got this Dorothy Perkins jacket just in time for the rainy weather conditions coming our way.

WATER COLOR + CORAL PINK

Happy Friday! Some clothes I buy end up not worn much because I don't feel their fitting. Case in point is this skirt. Now I call it a skirt but it was a dress top. It never felt right being a dress top and a trip to my tailor gave me this skirt which I now love so much. Also liking the match look with the top. Before recycling I had worn the top (now skirt) here.

STRIPES

Happy Wednesday! I have told you severally that I live for the shorts and this top could not just miss being worn in this mini summer season. Very airy piece in the hot temperatures we are currently experiencing.

OLIVE

Happy Monday! I trust you enjoyed your weekend. I found this short in a tee shirts pile at the thrift market, I must say I was lucky. I am liking the fit and length and yes I am searching for more shorts, I think when I reach short number 10, then I will consider that enough. Currently I have 5, so 5 more to go. I am also liking the subtle olive matchy effect with the top.

SILVER ACCESSORIES

Happy Friday! Loving this mini summer before the el nino begins and my natural afro is looking good too. Today's outfit was built around the silver accessories, I only wish I had some silver shoes to complete the silver look. I will be travelling to Nairobi over the weekend I hope I will get some pieces like the silver shoes and may be red that I have been on the lookout for.

BEDAZZLED + LACE

Happy Wednesday! Yes, another mildly bedazzled tank top this time. Actually what made me buy this top is the lace detail at the back, how cute can one get sexy from the back :) A friend saw me in a skirt, was his first time and asked what occasion called for me to wear a skirt because he's only ever seen me in either a trouser or pair of shorts - strange but given a chance I would live in shorts.

BEDAZZLED + PINK OVERLOAD

Happy Monday!Well, I must confess that though I am a girl, I have never liked color pink. In fact it is my 'hated color'. But then there was the #iwillwearwhatilike hash tag on instagram and I therefore decided to jump onto the bandwagon with this bedazzled pink overload outfit.
