Prints off the shoulder

dsc_0314

Let’s take a moment and appreciate the author of off shoulder pieces (silence), thank you. There are trends that translate to wardrobe essentials, and this one is definitely one of them.  Off shoulder tops are very easy to style, considering the fact they look good on every piece worn on the lower side of the body.

I styled mine with culottes pants, jelly shoes and see through socks. This gets me thinking how much fashion transitions. I could not have imagined as a young teenager that jelly shoes, socks in open shoes would ever be a thing. Socks in open shoes were an absolute faux pas. Dad had a habit of  wearing socks in sandals when he got back home from work, nothing irritated me more.

Prints give me life 😃 this african print off shoulder top was custom-made by my friend Juliana . The outfit can be worn to a casual event, on a weekend or any casual outing. The top can be styled differently for other occasions like Sunday service, to work on a Friday, lunch with friends …

I hope you like this style. In the meantime, I think the time for me to change my hair is come, I am open to suggestions 😘

Thank you for stopping by,

Love Rebecca.

Feels like the 90’s

dsc_1414

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.

We Walk in Jumpsuits.

dsc_0655

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.

MONDAY CHIC.

dsc_0093

Hello Monday… 🙂

I am very pumped for this Monday because I have been resting a lot (Doctor’s advise). I am well now and energized for the new week 🙂

I love to be smart on Mondays, I live for those “you look beautiful this morning Rebecca” on to make my recovery from the weekend easier. This Vintage round skirt spoke to me at first sight. I absolutely was crazy about the rich fabric, the hemline to die for and the floral print. It was like my holy trinity.

It was one of those pieces that are a no brainier styling because it in it’s self is the statement and therefore only requires a supplement.

I am very simple on accessories I do not buy many. I have been wearing this watch and these  BusFra Bracelets for a while now. Time to make a change I know.  This choker from The Kona can be worn two sides, beneath is a beautiful African print. It has been hard to change a nail color ever since I tried white. It just fits with everything in a simple but sophisticated way. Let me know your thoughts in the comments, I will make sure to reply each of them.

I wish you a pleasant and productive week. I love you for reading.

Thanks for stopping by,

Love Rebecca.

FREEDOM

dsc_0888.jpg

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?

Sending love to all the October babies.

Thank you for stopping by,

Love Rebecca.

LittLe white DreSS

You know how every girl must have a little black dress? The same goes for a little white dress. However, I would assign them both different parts of the day. The black for the night and more serious ocassions and the white for the day. Also for fun activities. My little white dress is one of favourite weekend outfits because of freedom it exudes. The patterns on it are timeless which was one of the reasons I purchased it. It is also very comfortable and is of just appropriate length. I combined it with a blue denim jacket which is also one of my timeless pieces and a brown bag. I find comfort in smaller bags but this brown one got me at first sight because of it’s rectangular shape. There is something masculine about it and such pieces have my heart. I finished the look with brown sandals to match the bag. ☺

What do you like to wear over the weekend? Kindly drop me a comment I will be keen to respond. If you like the post, show it by liking. 

Have a beautiful Sunday, let’s continue to pray for Syria.
