MY BLUE MONOCHROME LOOK

IMG_9848

Hey guys,

So,this is the look in detail that I submitted for my bloggers challenge. As explained earlier in that post,I went with blue because most of my items are in this colour so it was easier to find items to pair together. I have a yellow version of this skirt that I paired with polka dots as seen on this post but I honestly have no idea where the skirt is. Must be somewhere in my closet or God knows one of my sisters has gifted herself with it without my knowledge :) I see y’all.haha.

BLOGGERS CHALLENGE 2: MONOCHROME

IMG_9869(1)

Hey sugarplums

It’s that time of the month when we are hosting our second bloggers challenge after a successful first on prints. This time round the challenge was to wear monochrome. For those who are not aware,it means wearing one colour or shades of the same colour from head to toe. When I learnt of the challenge, I knew this was going to be a tough one because I have never really tried it before even when it was a major trend. I always loved the black and white version of monochrome so I was also keen to see how I will pull this off.

RED HOT

Hey misters and mistresses

Welcome to another episode of fabulosity featuring a red off shoulder top and a black and white checked pants. I love this pair of pants because they can be worn to the office as well as dressed down. I am always up for any piece that can multi task and adds value to my money. I knew I wanted to pair it with a red top but trouble brewed when I couldn’t decide which red top to wear it with. I had like 3 to choose from all recently bought so the psych to wear them all was at 100. I finally settled on this particular one and my oh my, loved it.

WHAT’S IN MY BAG?

DSC_0064

What’s in your bag? that’s the question I always get any time I say that my bag is feeling kinda heavy. Finally I figured it’s time to jump on the bandwagon and do a feature on it all the same. I am currently carrying a brown leather bag from Gralys collection. I have been carrying this bag for a while now and these contents are as per what was in the bag in accordance to my last post. Time to dive right into it literally speaking and hey, G.O.O.D.M.O.R.N.I.N.G

In my bag I have my green and mustard wallet that my beau gifted me with. I change wallets very often so I have a pile of some in good condition just laying around in my closet. In Mombasa, it rains abruptly at any time for about 10-20 minutes so I always have my umbrella with me. This umbrella has seen me through 2 good years! I keep saying I will buy another one but I’m just stuck with this tiny old thing that happens to work perfectly :) I also carry my sunglasses,wet wipes,extra pair of earrings,pocket tissues(got this one from the current true love issue) handkerchief and liquid sanitizer.I am such a germ freak. I don’t touch my face or food anyhow. I wash my hands roughly seven times a day and use a sanitizer in equal measure

PRINTS AND STRUCTURE

DSC_0041

Hey sweethearts,

I wore this outfit while in a rush to leave I could barely even take pictures. I am glad I did though because I learnt something. No matter the circumstances,always make sure your eyes are made up. I didn’t have time to have the all nine yards make do so I grabbed some lipstick from my bag and that was it. I rarely step out of the house without mascara or something.Like I am not a slave to make up but be assured my eyes will have something small going on.

About my outfit, it’s been a while since I donned this beautiful figure hugging dress I bought sometime last year if I’m not wrong. It’s my to go to dress when I am saving myself from all the creative bit of putting together an ensemble,works every time :) I decided to carry my new bag which I am completely in love with.My friend Franscina introduced me to some page on Facebook that had beautiful yet affordable bags. I haven’t owned a brown bag in a while so I ordered this particular one and its just fab. I love the quality of the bag,definitely worth my money. WIN

OF PEPLUM SKIRTS…

DSC_0194

Hey sugarplums

I hope you are doing better than I am. I came down with a nasty flu complete with a running nose y’all. Currently taking some antibiotics but I am sure I will feel better soon enough.The fact that it’s been raining non stop for two days does not help matters and to some extent I couldn’t believe I chose the heaviest coat in my wardrobe to wear yesterday. so unheard of in Mombasa…I am always wearing light ones

About my outfit, this was the situation a few days ago and I was on an accessory overload mood. It’s been ages since I wore this skirt and I always feel some form of excitement when I re discover an item in my closet. Still fits perfectly I must admit :)

ONE KITENGE SKIRT; 3 WAYS

DSC_0220

Hey pumpkins

Today it’s all about this lovely kitenge skirt I thrifted a few years back. The quality of the fabric is to die for. It doesn’t shed any colour when you wash and that is a plus for me as well. I have worn it probably more times than I have shown on the blog and that’s just because I love it so much and the styling options ran deep.

For the first look, I wore it with a bandage top for a beach look. The second was more colourful with brown hues and the third one I went with a denim look and a floppy hat just to keep it interesting. Which look do you fancy? Holla in the comment section below and don’t forget to subscribe to my blog as well:) (check side bar for that)

THE BLACK PENCIL SKIRT

DSC_0290(1)Hey lovelies

Happy new week! I am always energetic on Mondays and save a little of that energy for Tuesday and Wednesdays. By Thursday, it fizzles out and I’m always beat by Friday. I reckon I’m not alone in this so let’s make this day count :)

About this skirt, whenever I wear it I mostly go for an official look with chiffon blouses and blazers. This time I wanted to switch it up a little and be playful with it. I figured this sweater will do the trick and it sure did.I love tucking in when wearing high waist pants/skirts and sometimes you have to be careful not to lose your waist in the process especially while dealing with a sweater. For a pop of colour,my good old pink wedges came in handy,they never disappoint. I finished off the look with my new L’oreal lipstick.

SEPTEMBER IN RETROSPECT

DSC_0003(1)

Hey beautiful people

The weekend is here!! This weekend we are having an instagram  event at the beach where we will play all manner of games and take photos for instagram of course.I might miss out today since I will spend a lot of time at the salon getting pampered and all but Tomorrow I will be representing for sure. I just can’t wait.

On Today’s post, we get to have a look back in September. It was a good month and definitely a lot more fun as far as dressing up is concerned in comparison to August. I got featured on the fashion bomb daily as their fashion bombshell of the day which was pretty awesome I must admit. I also got named as one of the 10 fashion bloggers to watch this year on ghafla not to mention several appearances on black and killing it online. It’s always humbling to have your work showcased out there.I hope October will be as kind and I will keep inspiring you an outfit at a time. Keep it here and thanks for your support this far.xoxo

SOFT TO TOUCH…

DSC_0070(3)

Ladies and gents,

Give  me the pleasure of  introducing you to this velvet dark blue dress that serves as my multi purpose dress and serves me well for that matter. I first wore this dress for a birthday dinner with my fiance months back. Then I wore it to Achie’s bespoke event in August.I have worn it twice when I had flights that fell on a weekend, and now this for a friend’s event. If this is not that dress that will see me through thick and thin then I don’t know what this one  is… I might just throw on a peplum top and wear it to church this Sunday.Even if I thrifted this dress,it was worth every penny spent on it for a second hand item.
