My weekend was quite a flurry of activities. On Saturday my bestie decided to drag me to the National Museums, I was reluctant at first since I had planned to sleep in but finally decided oh what the hell.....and it happened to be one of the best decisions ever....we had so much fun, it was just amazeballs.
Nairobi has been super cold lately and in the museum it was worse...freezing....so I went for a tiny black dress with a polka trench coat on top with the hope of catching a few drinks later with my buddies....well it didn't happen....was sooo tired to care. The yellow pumps were so comfortable and the heel was ideal for walking around.
I loved the pictures in gray scale....it sought of went along with the museum ancient theme
My girls...loved their outfits especially the red dress, the pink shoe and the fuschia blouse with the belt.
Notice the faux fur scarf match with the lion...
On Sunday, we had planned to go visit this children's home in Ruiru....we always go back to check how they doing and just spend time with these kids...they always just amazing and we always have a ball everytime we go there.
I wore very simple but with pops of color and boyfriend flatties with straps
We did a painting for the kids with everyone doing a signature thing....I went for a heart
Yvonne....a lil very sweet angel
That's it for now.....my weekend in pictures....thanks for visiting!
Hallo fashionettes...been a long minute right? Well my camera decided to die on me so I had to sit it out for a few days till i got a rescue. Anywho I've missed blogging and I pray there will be no more hiatus....so lets get to business....I have been meaning to try out the print on print trend and I got the chance yesterday as it was very sunny and summer-ish
I was on my thrifting escapades when I saw this skirt....this chic was trying it on and oh my....was I wishing she would not buy it. So after a gruesome 30 minutes she finally let it go and trust me I jumped on it so fast the girl was puzzled......c'mon if you love shopping yo know what am talking about. The polka dot is so playful...it was a perfect fit and it was midi....what more could a girl ask for.
I decided to take a fash risk and combine it with this animal print tee....I love its fit and its so ideal for the hot weather without being too sheer....I find it a lil' bit flirty.
Basically...I went just for a simple tee with a skirt....Its amazing how much print can change an outfit. That's why I went for a solid hot pink pump to break the busy outfit and carried a white envelope clutch.
I love playing around with this brooch and this time round I minimised a very bareback tee...I held it together to make some vavavum out of it and make it more comfortable for me to wear it....as I am very conscious about revealing too much skin.
Animal print tee- Crazy world
Polka dot skirt- H&M
Pink pumps- Aldo
Envelope clutch- Atmosphere

There you have it.....what do you think of my outfit....drop me a line below
I find styling jumpsuits to be really tricky, you have to consider your shape and figure, otherwise you find your self in some fashion police cap. This was my outfit for my brother's graduation,I got this butter yellow one in my thrifting escapades....its a lil' baggy which i prefer because it doesn't crinkle around the hip and thigh area.
I particularly loved the collars at the front and back. The back is has a low neck while the front is shorter and peter pan. I threw in the jungle green vest to bring some seriousness to the outfit, but threw it off when it got extra warm
I did the little pops of color by adding a neon pink skinny belt, color blocked earrings and the cobalt blue platforms and matching tweed purse borrowed from my sisters closet.
I totally love the back it soo party at the back while business at the front.
I added a tangerine scarf with black polka dots to serve as my hair band.
Platforms- Pretty woman
Green vest- Thrifted
Neon pink belt- Machakos
Straw purse- Sis's closet
Hair- Expression braid
Ring, earrings- Perida centre
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
Hallo fashion rangers....... i had quite a weekend...am sad i did not go for Kitenge fest but well i had to attend my gals wedding. Got to see friends from high school and we really had a blast.
Onto my outfit: below is a snap summary of what i wore.....
I lo0ve this baby doll dress especially because of its peter pan collar, the peach color and the polka dots. I looked like a doll.
I added a green studded fold purse to add color to the outfit since i did lots of nudes then the floral red earrings.
I cinched it up with an orange belt with a floral corsage
Finished it off with nude platforms that i so love love.
