Simplicity Goes a Long Way

 There is a lot to simplicity. A white tee is a must have for any woman(and men for that matter) a white tee, colored pants and strappy sandals is simply perfect!

As always, i like to glam up my outfits, add a little 'vavavum' to it, a statement neck piece, red lip, cute little butterfly earrings and my curly 'fro
And of course a statement bag...

Full look...

F.A.F.A (Festival of African Fashion and Arts) was held about two weeks ago at the Village Market,Nairobi. This event showcased 12 emerging designers who would feature at the main event to be held in November. Click the link below for more photos of the event:

I am still crazy over mixing prints, this time I did a mix of stripes and Ankara print. I have won the same look before but shorts instead.
I designed these myself.

All Work and No Play

We all love a little play every now and then especially after a long day! I wore this to work earlier on today(well, with a few minor changes here and there)I have a slight obsession with military colored/inspired everything. Mixed it up with a vintage style blouse and red-bottom platform pumps. I am currently using my creativity to mix up all clothes in my wardrobe. White and military are just a beautiful match :)

 Given the cold weather, i layered with a double-breasted jacket and the pop of color, my yellow scarf...

All in the details...

On work days, depending on  my schedule I wear little or no makeup, or stick to minimalism and that unruly kind of hair 

Red-bottom platform pumps ;)

Happy Post

Visited the art gallery in the neighborhood earlier on today. There really isn't a way to describe my happiness at the moment, perhaps a pointer...
Because simply admiring art is too mainstream...(the sculpture is made of scrap metal)

I just had to

Nature loving maybe :)

(leggings, hi-low shirt- Adamz market; nude-colored wedges: gifted; neck piece: Maasai market)

I love the wall graffiti and my unruly hair :)
As i have said before, leggings + loose fit cotton shirt are my comfort! They are super comfortable and very tolerating of hot weather. This is one of my go-to outfits for a relaxed weekend.

More on the art gallery soon.

My Week In Pictures

To be honest, I have had a rather eventful week(quite literally) see below:
Last week on Wednesday, I attended Kiko Romeo's fashion show featuring my favorites the Kenyan Rugby XVs and 7s players.

 It was rather last minute, and a girl can never go wrong with a black outfit! Here with Arthur of
