What do sheers, denim, bows and animal print have in common...you would ask....well, this post is the answer. I got on a lil bit of everything I love. A combination of playful cuteness and edginess defines this outfit and today I will let the pictures tell the story. The chained bow is a DIY....Whats your take....lemmie know what you think below!
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!
The days that fashion overwhelms me and I find myself trying stuff that are out of my comfort zone....but then it would never be fashion wouldn't it?. It was quite a dull cold day so I decided to do a lil' bit of layering with little gothic accents
I L.O.V.E houndstooth print and been on a hunt for a skirt or short for a while and when I got it, I could not wait to style it. I went all retro with the black sweater and tucked it in since its super big. I complemented the look with a plum rich tone and added gold accessories. You never go wrong with red with black and white prints....so I added a crimson belt then finished if off with black leggings.
This shoes are so vavavum....I do not know what to call them but they are a cross breed of platforms with maryjanes. But I sure loved the polka dots.....Oh and they are super comfortable....they are so weird I could't help loving 'em and I thought they really complemented the hounds tooth print.
I kept the rest of my accessories minimal...

Knit sweater- Thrifted
Polka dot platforms- Ericos collection

Have a blessed week,
This was a simple outfit for one of those hot days, we have bee experiencing *before the rain started in the evening and i freezed to bits* I forgot my jacket and well, i paid for it with the case of the chillys. Anywho, I went for a high- low black sheer vest and denim jeans.
The accessories were color popping, to add an ooomph to the dull outfit and make it more glam without doing too much!
Am in love with this purple pinkish lipstick, I added the neon pink earrings to complement it
The oversize floral purse...is a carry it all though....the arms tire very fast, its overly fit for most occasions even night events!
Finally, the bronze ruffled peeptoe booties,I thought the peep toe would show some skin especially since i was basically covered up.

Thanks for stopping by,
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
I always find the boudoir family quite sexy and its only ideal for me to love lace. Its one of those fabrics thats here to stay and will always re occur in runways time after time.
The skirt i have done it before in a post before so this time i decided to spice the outfit up and pair it with this black lace blouse.
I added a neon pink belt to bring that pop of color
Then.....i carried this white vintage bag with flame details and finished it off with these orange suede bow heels
Then my oh so lovely kitenge earrings from Bri's African Relics collection

Of late i have been spotting these button up shirts and aint getting obcessed with them. But aren't they just off the hook
Well it not everyday you catch me in flatties but a gal gots to give them mean heels a break sometimes. I totally like these pointed brown patent ones especially when am out and about or running errands and want to look chic.
By now u must know how i love animal prints, this one was sheer and quite subtle than most i usually do. I paired it with these high waisted woolen shorts and added this butterfly cobalt blue stretch belt.
I dressed up the shirt with this multi colored bib necklace to add a pop of color to the outfit and finally carried my croc skin leather bag. Oh and my geeks for the definition of the geeky look i was goin for.
The flatties have a distressed bronze tip
Its been really hot of late so yesterday i decided to pull a very relaxed summer look. I pulled out this sleeveless cropped denim shirt with two tails at the front meant for tying.
I paired it up with this green sheer maxi, i decide to give an ooomph to it so i cut the slit high up to my knees
I reallly love this multicolored lesso head scarf and i tied a bow to it then my favorite kitenge earrings of all time from Bridgets collection.
Finished it off with these fuschia slingbacks and the black straw basket.

This oufit screams out girly in not so many words. The sun was scorching as early as 8 a.m so i decided to go flirty in this A- line mini
I paired it up with this sheer zebra print blouse and accessorised it with a cobalt blue collar necklace
I'm finding myself quite attracted to turqoise green offlate and i tend to but get off by getting so much stuff in that color. I will just go ahead and declare it my 2012 obcession color.
Finally....i wore this strappy off white with leopard print platforms for a more relaxed look to the outfit and carried a brown crocodile skin bag.
This weekend was all about family and friends. On sunday I did a picnic with the gals and this is a polyvore of what I wore.
I did a sheer peach blouse and a nautical striped tank inside, paired it up with high waisted woolen shorts and bandage cream wedge sandals
I then did a lesso head scarf to add some color to the oufit and a pinch of green with the belt. The earrings are kitenge inspired from bridgets collection and i totally love them. It was getting dark and i did not take really good pics so this time i will just add only limited ones for you to just get the concept
