TIME IS MONEY

Hey beautiful people. As you can tell I am a Tamar Braxton fan.She is quite a character and she definitely gave some life to the quote 'ain't nobody got time for that" For those who watch her show,don't you feel kinda sorry for her husband Vince sometimes? She is definitely #teamtoomuch. I saw this t shirt at a mr price store here in Mombasa and decided to purchase it.I was looking for a good salon and trust me to wonder into clothing stores instead.smh

I paired the simple t shirt with my faded distressed denims and baby pink heels.For accessories, I went with a gold necklace from unique accessories Kenya,a pair of bangles and sunglasses.A structured black bag Kinda finished off the look and I was ready to go about my business.

EASTER OUTFIT: KITENGE SKIRT


How was your Easter guys? seems like everyone else but me traveled. Well,I didn't have to really because I have moved to Mombasa and I just spent my first Easter here.I will be living and working in the coastal region, and I am so excited about my new life ventures here.I am glad JB is here on holiday for a while so we will continue to work together for now.Anyway, to my outfit....

Colour looks beautiful on a sunny day and I always have that memo with me.I paired my yellow cotton top with my kitenge skirt which I have worn a few times here on the blog.I love this combination because it's so vibrant and puts me in a good mood.My achie otigo clutch was my bag of choice and I settled on this comfortable pair of brown heels.I finished off the look with my cool necklace from unique accessories Kenya and a black pair of sunnies.I can't wait to get all my shoes and and clothes here..I am lost without them :(
Back to work now and I am so in the holiday mood still.But I'm glad I had a good rest and now I can focus more and put an effort here and there in whatever I am doing.Thank you Jesus,like for real :)
As usual,let me know what you think of this outfit in the comment section below

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

create your own wardrobe essentials and share with me
thank you for passing by
enjoy the weekend.XOXO

PURPLE VINTAGE

Have a lovely day my loves
i would die for this dress

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.
