6 WARDROBE ESSENTIALS

I am fully aware that a lot has been said in regards to what is essential to have in your closet and this includes everything from that little black dress to the perfect blazer.However I would love to have a different approach to wardrobe essential..I am taking my new definition of wardrobe essential as something you have which gives you instant fabulosity. It is essential in that it is the to go to piece for that instant glam that you desperately want

1)THE LITTLE WHITE DRESS
Ever been invited to an all white party and you just can't find a white dress? that is part of the reason why you should have one.It's easy to stand out in a room of ladies wearing LBDs and it will always be a classic as well

2)TUXEDO BLAZERS
It doesn't really matter the colour or design but a tuxedo blazer is one of the most overlooked yet classic fab piece that oozes elegance instantly.This should definitely be a wardrobe staple.when you get a random invite to an event and have no idea what to wear,just add a tuxedo blazer to your simple look and voila!!!

3)DISTRESSED DENIMS
Need I say more?

4)POINTED PUMPS
The thing I love about these shoes is their versatility. You can wear them with a skirt, a dress, jeans,shorts etc.they have a touch of sophistication and they are timeless.You can stock on neutral colours so that you can pair them with a wide range of ensembles

5)WHITE BLOUSE
The styling capability for the white blouse is endless.you can dress it up with a skater or pencil skirt or dress it down with denims and shorts.Jewellery makes a difference when it comes to this piece

6)PENCIL SKIRTS
Pencil skirts give a lovely silhouette especially high waist pencil skirts.Depending on styling,they can be worn to work,events,school and meetings.Stock up on different colours for variety and choose a length that best compliments the look you are going for

TREND:HOW TO WEAR A MERMAID MIDI SKIRT

sasha from http://www.moiology.com/




Midi skirts have been on trend for a while now.What about the mermaid midi skirts?? I have seen a few bloggers rock this trend.At first I had mixed feelings about it but the more I see people wearing it the more I like it.In my opinion,fit is everything when it comes to this trend and curvy girls are in for a kill with this one.You can go monochrome with this or colour block it through out your ensemble.Alternatively,you can wear it with a crop top or a fun sweater.Structured trench coats look better with this skirt when compared to your usual blazer.The secret is to style this skirt in whichever way that compliments your style and figure without looking like you are forcing it.At the end of the day,not every trend is for everyone but make it your own.

KITENGE TRENCH COAT

Achie Otigo and I were going into a meeting one day,I was wearing a polka dot blazer and she was wearing this trench coat.The moment I set my eyes on it I was like "guuuurl,you ain't leaving with that coat today" we ended up swaping blazers with 'temporarily' being the word of the day but that was it.Once this trench met it's sisters in my closet,they became fast bffs and the story line was cut right there

I love the trench not just because of it's print but it really does come handy.I travel a lot,Usually I'm not in the same place for two weeks and this has become my travel staple piece.Truth be told,it acts like a blanket sometimes when I am traveling early in the morning or late at night.I definitely encourage y'all to own one light and vibrant trench coat.On to my outfit,It was a little bit chilly so I put on my stockings and brown booties just to flow with the colours.I also tried some orange undertone lipstick.love :)
bag:really old.toi market
shoes:a gift from sweden.thanks fliq :)
necklace from unique accessories kenya

NEON AND CROP TOPS

I'm crazy about hair and I try to take care of mine the best way possible.However,I'm so boring when it comes to hairstyles and colour.I rarely experiment with hairstyles leave alone colours.You just never know how it will turn out...I dunno if you get me.Now,would you believe that I have never had my hair in curls before! I always use large rollers when using a drier and after that my hair is just straightened with a comb.My hair stylist was on my case about trying something new and I unwillingly settled for a few curles just to try it out..I loved the outcome :) a little curly mohawk never hurt nobody right?

To my outfit details,I wore this amazing neon crop top and photos really don't do this colour justice.since I'm more comfortable with high waist pairing when it comes to crop tops,I settled on this loose official wear black pants.I am sure this wedges are not new to you guys :) I love the gold chain I got from unique accessories Kenya.on my lips is gabrini lipstick.I love this brand because they have so many colours that compliment my skin tone.a piece goes for 250ksh at beauty options
