It has been a while since I showed face on here, that’s because I decided not to hid to social media pressure. Other than that, I have been doing fantastic, hoping you have are doing well yourself and have managed to survive any complications.
Last weekend the girls and I decided to take a break off our busy schedules to try something we all hadn’t done before. After many deliberations, we settled for horse riding.
No one warned us it would be a work out which we should have guessed, I mean no activity that involves riding is easy. Mine was called Apple, she’s 9 years old. I would describe her as a beautiful, bright eyed, calm yet cocky horse.
From transportation, to warfare, to agriculture, horses have surely left their mark on human history; bonding with them was a worthwhile experience.
Welcome back from the weekend, my prayer is made some happy memories to take you through the week. Is October moving very fast or what? We cannot ignore the fact that Kampala has been way too heated lately. It has caused me to take risks like not carry a sweater with me as I leave home which usually is very unusual that my friends nick named me (Ka sweater.)
I find comfort in light and soft fabrics especially on hot days just like this Ombre Caroline Morgan dress. I love Caroline Morgan designs because comfort is a priority to them , this is reflected in their choice of fabric and style. Most of their clothing also have a knit touch to die for like the hem of my dress. Details like finishing, type of straps matter a lot to me and this dress checked all the boxes. 🙂
Ombre art took over 2016 by a storm from hair, to nails, lips and clothing too. I hadn’t found anything ombre I fancied so much like this dress. I matched it with a maroon purse that just settles with the pink and white color scheme. I hope you like it 🙂 and have a pleasant week ahead.
I had an exciting weekend. My girls and I stepped out of town to celebrate Sheilah’s birthday by Lake Victoria. I had so much fun that I forgot to capture some of the cutest moments (Shy Face) but at least I managed to capture my outfit of the day.
This short sleeve dress is something I was not so sure about purchasing. I had major doubts about it flattering my body build, yet I loved the freedom it comes with. We all know how that ended, it is on the blog 🙂 The not so obvious high low hemmed theme is something I like. It makes me feel more secure especially in windy weather because my behind (which I do not have much control over) is well covered.
The first thought to match it with long strap sandals but that would be so obvious. I wanted to be free too. I wound up settling for a different kind of strap sandals, the double strap. I achieved the freedom feel I wanted to experience the entire day. Oh and by the way, freedom is my biggest inspo. What’s yours?
Pastel colors are life. There softness bring a breath of fresh air to an outfit just like flowers do, no wonder they’re trending this year! Putting this outfit together was no brainer mainly because I had a bag of the same color shade as the shorts. This gave me the freedom to wear whatever shade of shoes I pleased because the bag had a friend (Ha Ha).Pastel colors have not been very easy for me to match in the past because they seem to rebel black all the time, I was pleased when I got this one together with not much effort.
I am trying change my entire closet to a minimalist one but boy oh boy, my love for prints keeps letting me down. But who would resist this top? 🙂 I have won these red pumps consecutively for about two weeks now, they’re super comf and they look great in my feet. This is the kind of outfit you are likely to find me wearing on a Saturday.
I love how fast time flies when it’s raining, how I am always hydrated because of the several cups of tea through out the day. I need not to mention that the light is perfect for photography. I like to wear clothes that have a flare of light on dull days, I think it is my unconscious way of showing gratitude for the rain. This turquoise coat was the perfect piece today. I must admit though, it was difficult to style because the color is quite a task to put together which I did not anticipate earlier. But then I figured to match with a similar shade of color and everything fell in place.
Block heels are a real life hack, I salute the inventor. This multi color pair is my favorite at the moment.
Ladies and gentlemen, introducing you already know who, an #AllBlackPost 😂. All black will never go out of style in Fashion (Pun intended).Moving on, I loved shirt dresses since their debut over two years back. As I grow older, the realisation that “comfy and edgy” is my style is continually emphasized. This shirt dress is one of those items. I can allow my stomach stretch over a meal and have no fear of appearing like I have a baby bump.
The masculine inspired theme is another element I am totally down for! We have seen women fashion borrow a lot from menswear in the past two years. This is a norm I feel lucky is happening at a time I am alive because it means more comfy and edgy trends.
This dress can be worn with a belt too and boots. I recommend getting a loose sized dress for this look. I hope you had a lovely day ❤
Take a moment and imagine a typical guys reaction to the Title of this post 😂Anyway back to business, 2016 has been an excting year for fashion! Dominated by the neutrals concept. The “nude” trend which also is branch of the neutrals concept is something fresh, not like many other trends that have made a come back. Which explains the resurgence of this trend not forgetting the very beautiful fact that it celebrates the different skin tones. I am sure, it has taught many of us to love the color of our skins even more.
Brown as a color has been a major design element since the inception of the nude notion. I have have always loved brown as a color, mostly because of its rich beautiful hues. It is exciting to see the various hues of brown being celebrated. It took me a while to get an outfit that very close to my skin tone. I landed on a skirt and then the camisole a few weeks later( You cannot imagine how excited I was). It was no doubt that I was going to go monochrome on this one. I added a golden metallic belt to add poise to the outfit and a chocker to make it fun. Chocolate / mahogany is my nude, what’s yours?
