Happy New Year!

Before I start this post, I would like to apologise for my absence, and I promise I will explain it all in my next.

Hello! Hello! Hello!

How have you guys been? I hope your holiday was amazing and that y’all crossed over to the new year well.

For the first post of the year I’m bringing y’all summer in Nairobi. I don’t know why, but that’s what I see in this outfit.
You remember Ndutah’s Accessories from my hair accessories video? Well this amazing pieces are from there as well.

Mismatched bikini and  kimono.

I’m not one for bikinis, this is actually my first, but let me tell you. I look good in it. Hahaha.
The kimono is just the perfect length and fit. For those who own crocheted clothes you know they are nice and lightweight and with this Nairobi heat, they are just perfect for that.

Another thing I love about this, is that the items are versatile. You can wear them to the pool/beach and wear them as part of an outfit ( I’ll show you two of my favourite outfits)

The Smart Casual

Blazer – Mum’s Wardrobe.
Skirt – Mr Price Junction.
Choker – Ndutah’s Gifts

For this look, I paired the bikini top with a blazer and a bodycon midi skirt. I love how the beige, mustard and grey play well together. I felt so good in this one and you can wear it practically anywhere.

And yes, I have no make up on. 🙂

Jeans – Thrifted.

For this look, I just put on the kimono and a pair of Jeans. The jeans are actually high-waisted. It felt right to be the girl in the baggy jeans, plus I had to let the tomboy in me shine for a bit. 🙂

P.s; For the 30 minutes that I was out shooting, I got a tan. Light-skinned problems in Nairobi. 🙂

I just want to go to the pool now.

Hope y’all enjoyed the post, missed you a lot.

Good Morning,

Another week has come and gone, I’m just happy of how fast time is moving cause that just means that my big 21 is just 46 days away. Y’all don’t know the amount of excitement in me.

On another note, I think we are finally done with the cold weather. The sun is out, The sky is clear and blue, and it smells like spring. I know I’m not the only one who is ready to soak in some sun in cute, short outfits and all.

To welcome this beautiful weather, I opted for a simple, sporty look.

Lets, talk about this shorts, they’re the very first pair of shorts that I made. Very comfortable and cute, they also have pockets. 🙂 Paired them with my favourite blue top and my all time fav, comfy shoes, the tomy’s. if you don’t own a pair, I suggest you do, they are affordable.

For accessories, I went for this pretty blue beads and chain necklace by Jane’s Beads and my everyday arm candy.

Isn’t blue just a calming colour. Just rests my active soul. Haha

Anyway, I shall leave you with that, it’s time for me to go hang with my people.

Enjoy your Furahi Day (Happy Friday) as we Kenyan’s say. 😉

Love,

Jo

Keeping It Cropped

Good Morning,

KIC

One of my all-time favourites is the cropped top, I’m not ashamed to say that I have an addiction to them. I remember growing up as a child we used to call them “Tumbo Cuts” cause they literally cut your stomach in half.

Anyway, back to business. I’ve never been a chunky jewellery type of girl, I’m weird, I know, but there was something about this pearl piece that caught my eye and I just had to have it. Though its chunky, It doesn’t look like it is. And I love how perfectly it sits, not too high, not too low. Get it, Got it. Good. Haha, don’t ask, I think I’ve had too much of pure air.

I opted to pair the cropped top, with low rise jeans and a cropped jacket.

This outfit made me feel sexy and comfortable. I always believe that if you aren’t comfortable in what you’re don’t bother with it.

If you don’t have a pearl piece in your collection, I have no idea what you’re waiting for.

Thanks for stopping by.

Love,

Jo.

Good Morning,

I have you missed y’all so much, you have no idea. Thank God my exams are over and I have a few weeks to relax and enjoy myself.

Can I simply ask, why is it cold and we are almost done with August? Like honestly, the sun should be out and I shouldn’t be walking around my house in my duvet, my poor body is suffering over here. 😦

Anyway, enough with my rumbling. The other day the sun decided to grace us with it’s presence so it was time for me to dust off my cute little skirt and show off some legs 😉

I’m one of those girls who loves having fun with clothes but being totally comfortable, and this outfit was just the perfect fit for  this day. Double C (Cute & Comfortable)

I decided to pair it up with this beautiful piece from Jane’s Beads Ke I just loved how the black and red in the necklace was picked up in the skirt. If you know me, I never like planning my outfits, ’cause I end up changing them at the last minute the only thing that remains are my shoes. To me random is always best.

Hi, I’m a short girl and I love my heels. Honestly, is there any girl who doesn’t love heels? Whether tall or short, those bad boys make you feel so good and I never mind the added height, at least I won’t be tip-toeing to hug anyone when I’m in them 😉

This piece is just gorgeous, simple yet bold. And I Love It.

Have an awesome Furahi Day and enjoy your weekend.

Love,

Jo.
