Happy December, these past few days have been as happy as this outfit :). I have no one to thank but God for this.
Suspeders were first invented in 1820 by Albert Thurston.They have been in fashion for the last century, and have never gone out of style. I doubt they ever will, I mean they have survived a century! These distressed denim pants are my favourite because of the stylish elements( length, the fact they are distressed) and they fit just right.
Denim is the easiest thing to style for sure. These can go well with heels as they go with sneakers. This shade of denim looks better with colors close to white.
I had never tried a sweater on these pants, I was impressed with the look. I like payful outfits, I am slowly putting an end to purchasing heels to more playful footwear, we will see how long this lasts.
I still can’t believe 2017 is just 40 days away! Time did not fly this much when I was younger, probably because I did not have so much to do. All the same, I am so greatful to be alive 🙂
When shopping I look out for versatility in clothing among other aspects. This jumpsuit checked that box. It can be worn in many ways according to how it is styled, to a diner with heels, an out door event, an easy Sunday… I love to wear it as a chill outfit like this specifi day that I wore it to a walk.
I styled it with grey canvas lace up sneakers and a denim hoodie for a minimal look . I hope you enjoy it. Remember to take walks whenever you can, it’s good for both your physical and mental wellbeing.
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.
As I grow older I find more pleasure in cafes than bars that were my absolute joy while I was younger. *Thinks* This sounds like a statement my forty year old self would say, have I slowed down that much? Sigh..
I was drawn to L’auteur because of the artistry. The way wood is creatively used to make the place beautiful. I suggested it for a meeting with a friend who is like me in many ways. We were both impressed at the entrance by the appearance of the space.We rushed to the big couch for a proper chill. We ordered for tea (which is kept warm by a candle) that we sipped amidst lots of laughter before we headed over to the book section which did not have only books but magazines too (Heaven). I got soaked in a Cosmo mag and before we knew it we were hungry. I ordered a Caesar salad and Bus ordered a club sandwich with wedges. The bits and pieces of the salad were cut and severed in right proportions which is key to a well made salad. Bus enjoyed his sandwich which I would have had a portion of if not for my intolerance to gluten. I had some of his wedges that were absolutely delish. I almost forgot to mention that the music selection is en pointé.
We wound up spending over 6 hours at this cozy cafe. L’auteur is not just a cafe, it is an experience.
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 ❤
