Happy new week my good people, My name is Maureen and I am obsessed with stripes....I seriously cannot keep my hands off. I have blogged about these pants before here and this time round I decided to combine it with neon accents.
A simple luminous green blouse seemed to be my perfect choice...then I added little pops of neon pink with the earrings and the heart shaped purse
Finished it off with these cobalt blue platforms with the matching bib necklace and my lovely animal print geeks and a red bold lip.
What do you think of my outfit....drop me a line below!
One of my current obcessions this season is simple t- shirts, I find them very versatile and playful. You can dress them up and down and still be super chic. I decided to do black and white pictures....to give you an illusion of its simplicity without the colors and all.
I paired it up with drop waisted pencil pants, a satchel bag and simple pumps for a day of running errands.
Well I cdn't leave you hanging no more.......heres a sneak peek of the outfit in color!

Thanks for visiting....Share your thoughts,
2013 is all about bold patterns and the printed pants do not fall off the radar......I liked this floral pair but had quite some challenge getting the best blouse to go with it.
I went for solid colors to balance off the noisy print......the pants are high waisted, so i did a white hi- lo button up shirt
My accessories were very few.....a pearl DIY neck piece and a cobalt blue bib neckace then finished it off with patent black sling backs
White shirt- Thrifted

Honestly, I am obsessed with this summer trend......STRIPES. Not only are they adorable and chic, they add that bold and daring element to your look. I recently just bought these pants, ofcos I was concerned I might end up looking like a jailbird but the eclectic part of me had to have em.
I first spotted nautical vertical striped pants on Elle MacPhearson in the fashion star reality show and since then being hoping to get me a perfect pair. They are really dramatic trousers and definitely make a statement. I was concerned about looking like a jailbird but the eclectic side of to me won over so i had to add it in my closet.
I always find black and white goes well with bold hues so i went for the red cropped jacket and a bold bronze neck piece.
I kept the accessories to a minimal and added a non competing blue woven purse
I did a black tank and black booties so as not to compete with the stripes, then
a tangerine hair bow
Black tank top- Thrifted
Stripped pants- Toi Market
Cropped jacket- Toi market
Ankle boots- Ericos collection
Straw clutch- My sisters closet

I have to say....i really love polka dots, theres just something about them that calls out to me, i find them fun and a teeney lil bit flirty in their own twisted way.
Thats why I mixed different polka dots in this outfit, the black on white in the blouse and the white on teal in the shoes
I have had these pants for a long time now, since '08 and i find them to be classic vintage and you can wear them in many different ways and they still don't go out of style.
I have to confess am currently obcessed with these shoes.....oh so cute and these earrings, i find them to be just bold especially when i have my hair in a pony
I finished it off with a crimson red chain bag and minimal accessories so as not to compete with the busy fabric
Polka dot blouse- Thrifted
Polka dot wedges- Ericos collection
Cross body bag- Machakos market
Hair- Expression braid
The beauty of a tuxedo jacket its the versatility it brings to the table. This jacket can be worn from the formal day in the office to casual friday to the weekend with a pair of denim to literally anything else possible. This piece was originally masculine until the softer feminine vibe came into trend.
What i love about mine is the houndstooth print on it. I find it tricky to wear the print so i decided to go for nudes and whites because of its busy print.
I have had these pants for quite a while and they used to have suspenders until i chopped them off. I love the highwaisted feel to the them as they elongate my torso and shape it.
Then i topped it off with my crimson envelope clutch. I tend to to find red complimenting prints that are black and white.

Sup' dolls, i believe you are having a superb week. Yesterday i went for the K.U culture week opening and this is what i wore
I am still a huge fan of nautical stripes as they tend to elongate my torso when worn as a shirt or blouse, so i got two of these sometime last week. I went for the button up shirt look and tucked into the chinos
What i loved the most about this shirt is the lace detail at the back...i find it so demure
I rolled up the chinos and wore this woven yellow peep toes from Belluci
I accessorised the shirt with a golden statement bib necklace, then added the red skinny belt for the final touch of the chinos. Then added the floral print inspired purse and i was ready for a sunny summer day out.
Hello there fashion bunnies...been a minute right? Well i had computer troubles, it was really acting up but i managed to get it back to normal. Here's an outfit i did last week on a not so official day out in town and i had to drag my good pal paul to take the pictures.
I got both the pants and blouse while thrifting in Machakos in a recent visit home. I L.O.V.E the oversize turqoise printed blouse...its soo vintagey, the combo was automatic for my eye and i knew thats exactly how i wanted to wear the outfit. The red highwasted pants seemed to just fit like a glove and the wide legged was like such a plus.
I ofcourse paired it up with my bright colored court shoes and my outfit was officially colour blocked
I kept my accessories very minimal, just threw in a pair of cobalt blue pearls, a turqoise green ring and my vintage chanel black purse.
Hello fashion rangers, one more day to go and its the weekend....woop woop i can hardly wait. I have been doing lots of girly looks lately so this day, i decided to get in touch with my eclectic side of style. Its a look i have done before sometime last year when the boyfriend
trousers were so in trend.... but well...fashion is timeless.
Lets get to the dish on my outfit. Am not really a denim jeans girl....i own like 3 pairs, this one was a gift from my cousin who got it from Italy its a united colors of benetton brand. She didn't know what to do with it and i was glad to show her how to wear it. As is the case with boyfriend jeans, i rolled them up to form a cuff upto my ankles and they should fit through the hips and thighs. Since my jeans were a lil' snug, i went for an oversize classic white boyfriend shirt....then i rolled them sleeves up to give a more relaxed yet feminine feeling away from the masculinity of the whole oufit.
I added a Moschino belt to give a touch of casualness to the jeans, then a pop of color with my Aldo hot pink pumps and finished it off with a vintage black chain bag i got from my mums 80's closet. Take a look i accessorised the bag with a pinch of scarf and tied to form a bow on it. I went for a Janelle monae hairstyle and rolled my braids to a turban like style
Hey there fashionettes, a new week, a new day, i gotta spring to my step this monday.....well the weather is amaze.... its a 'moanday' but its bright, sunny and lovely. What other better way to get through than to get inspired. This is one of my most favourite looks todate. I grabbed these pants at my thrifting sessions, and with a squeal of joy i could not believe my luck. I had been looking for such a unique pair everywhere, they are absolutely stunning. They were a perfect fit- they have to be worn a size up so as not to be clingy but just flowy and easy breezy. The way they billow as you walk... I felt like Michelle Pfieffer in
Palazzo pants add dramatic style to your wardrobe. Flowing wide-leg design gives you a fashion-forward look that's easy to wear. I wore this outfit for a business meeting then later on a day with my lovely cousins. They are comfy and flow nicely while also looking professional, which makes them great for days in the office. The green tie neck blouse brought some seriousness to the outfit without making it too casual. I wanted to avoid being drammatic so i added nautical striped button earrings to the look and baby pink heels then a pop of color with the red and gold buckle.
The channel bag was a total steal and am so in love with it, you can dress it up or down to the office or just an everyday bag. I got the pants and blouse in machakos (yea u heard me).
The pleated accents add a sophisticated touch to the pants. Make sure the high rise sits on the natural waistline for a classic silhoutte
