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.
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.
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 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?
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?
If I heard someone talk about sweaters and boots I would most likely eavesdrop because that is comfort and style talk. It is like those buy one get one promos. These two items manage to look stylish every time. If I knew earlier in life that tucking in sweaters would look this stylish I would have done it with my school uniform.
This over sized sweater is one of my comfort clothes, it can work well on my couch on a lazy Sunday, a night out with shorts and on a random evening. I like it’s rich (ruby woo) color. Army green is another rich and diverse color. It goes well with almost every color. I finished off the look with brown boots which are my favorite right now (because they look like those sock boots I am dreaming about) and a chunky blue bag.I salute the inventor of high waist jeans.
When tucking in choose an over sized sweater.
Avoid tucking in neatly.
Have a beautiful September, hope you caught a glimpse of the eclipse.
