Lady in the woods.

 

Happy 2017!                         

Beginnings are usually exciting and motivating because they represent hope😀.So far,2017  has been very good to us in Kampala,weather wise especially because January is usually a hot month. I am very grateful for this 🙂 

Dressing up in the cold weather can be challenging most times especailly when I intend to appear feminine, chic and warm at the same time.  I prefer sweaters to jackets even though I own more jackets.

This double layered skirt, is everything. I am fascinated by its meticulous attention to detail. The maker should be a person of depth. I mean it’s double layered yet still see through. I tucked in a juniper green pullover sweater to compliment the earth color of the skirt. It is imporatant to get proportions right, balance is key. If you are wearing a mini skirt, an oversized sweater is ideal and vice versa. Equilibrium is essential for colour and texture as well. A monochrome skirt will balance the bold pattern of a sweater, while a simpler knit sweater will look great with an embellished skirt.

I finished my look with brown boots to remain earth strong.

Pastel Stereotype 


My style is not very ladylike but there’s something about the pastel palette that makes me want to be a true lady.All from the so many beautiful lemon, mint, pale pink and dusty blue hues that get my attention each time. 

This mint green number is perfect in every way as it is designed to fit the stereotype that comes with pastel hues – babies, innocence, softness and beauty.  The detailing on this dress couldn’t be more spot on, the pockets, buttons, and bow tie statisfy my needs on this outfit.

Buttons 😍. Forgive the dead grass on the shoes 🤦🏾‍♀️

I combined it with blush pink ankle strap heels to extend the pastel theme and feel more ladylike. I like to wear pastel hues for the warmer months, oh and in case you missed it,2016 will officially be the hottest year on the books in more than 120 years of record keeping by U.S. agencies.  I prefer to wear pastel colors together instead of fusing them with bold colors. How do you like to wear yours? Let me know in the comments section. 

I love you for stopping by

It will Shine Again…


Today I let go of someone I held dear for a long time 💔 💔 such a hard decision (Sigh)

This caused me to think of all other people in a similar situation. Going through any sort of break up or loss can be very difficult especially if it’s during a festive season. Sadly, such is life!

You however,are never alone, millions of creatures all over the world are connected to you in very similar situations. 

I resonated with this, 

At your absolute best you still won’t be good enough for the wrong person. 

At your worst, you’ll still be worth it to the right person.

Remember this. 

And this…

New beginnings are often disguised as painful ending …

– Lao Tzu 

Now, let’s not pretend we are okay, let’s allow ourselves to go through the motions for a better healing. 

I love you for stopping by,

Love Rebecca.

Feels like the 90’s

Happy Wednesday, this is one of my favorite days because it carries sentiments of encouragement to carry on because, there is something to look forward to, you guessed it -the weekend! I have trouble saying those two words lately without thinking of the singer, I know I am not the only one 😉.

I find history and vintage clothing interesting, maybe because they both ask questions. I drive a lot of inspiration from 80’s and 90’s fashion you may think I’ve spent time studying it yet it comes naturally. It is definitely a breath of fresh air from the trends that often crowd the fashion scene.

Most people have a thing for the fabric, denim and I am not an exception. This skirt got the ooohhs and aaahhs from me at first contact as did the Italian Ankle strap heels who’s color is very obsessive. I matched these items with another classic piece, the pull neck shirt that never disappoints. What do you think?

Thank you for stopping by,

Love Rebecca.

Jelly Shoes Style.

Greetings, I hope you are having a great day :). So I have always liked Jelly shoes but never got a pair I resonated with until these black ones happened. I was super excited and thankfully for the cloudy weather I have been able to wear them a few times. With such happy feet I had to go monochrome on the outfit.

Tulle skirts and jelly shoes are some of the items we can share with children in fashion. I imagine if I were a mom, I would play dress up with my daughter with these two items. So it was easy for the items to rhyme, they made such chemistry with the mid calf socks.

I added a choker and a trilby hat both black to add a slight edge and to maintain the monochrome theme. That’s how I styled my jelly shoes, let me know your thoughts in the comments.

I love you for stopping by,

Gratitude, Rebecca.
