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.

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.

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 love you for stopping by,

Hugs, 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.

Jelly Shoes Style.

dsc_0174

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.

White and Pink Ombre.

dsc_0012

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.

Thank you for stopping by,

Love Rebecca.

My friend Louise came by to show support at my shoot in a matching dress. How cute 🙂

Shades of Green

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.

I hope you had a warm day.
