Today was weird, I woke up thinking I had the day off and was really confused when work called me to go in….ooppss!, I can’t keep track of my days anymore..
I also can’t wait for this week to end, its been hellish, but I am trying to stay positive. Do you guys ever miss school/classes?, I do.. I miss learning new things and being excited to finish projects in college, and I honestly can’t wait to go back because I am really struggling to like my new work position. I don’t want to quit just because am unhappy there, I know its only temporary so I’ll give it my best and hopefully things will look up soon.
yay to career change thoughts!!
Stay positive friends, it’s almost spring 🙂
Unfortunately my week didn’t start so well, I got some bad news and I am trying so hard not to linger and think about it..
I hope y’all are having a good week and if not, just remember sometimes life has to have plot twist, we can’t always have all the things we want, but learn to be persistent and work harder than before.
Our mission in life is not to merely survive but to thrive, and to do so with some passion, compassion, humor and some style
I am glad to see my sister has some stripes obsession like I do.
I hope y’all have a great start to the week, I am definitely looking forward to mine hoping to achieve a lot this month. Enjoy the sister style and hopefully we get to see more of her in future ✌️😘
I have been enjoying reading other blogs and seeing everyone’s take on Valentine’s day and their outfits…so fun
This year for valentines I will be wearing a dress I bought last year from dailylook for a different “dress-up occasion”, it is one of my favorite dresses in terms of quality and style. Since February is somewhat cold here (esp at night) and I hate wearing heavy coats on a night out, this dress will be perfect because it covers me up and still makes me look hot 😍
It’s been raining all day every single day, and when the sun pops up at sunset am trapped indoors working. Today was very strange in terms of weather, It was pouring rain and dark clouds on one spot and sunshine on a different spot, I literally stood outside to watch this weird thing happen…ok enough about
that interesting topic on the weather. Today I felt like a rainbow in the midst of a storm in terms of my outfit haha….people were really staring at me since (or so I felt) my colors really popped (am guessing), who says I can’t wear bright clothes on rainy, gloomy days..
I could not spot a soul in bright colors, everyone was all black and grey coats….
I really loved my outfit today, my blush, cable knit sweater is so cozy and warm, and this skirt is super adorable!!! Since it was raining all day, I chose to wear boots because I was going to be walking up and down, outside. I bought these boots 2 years ago and they are still in good shape. I wear them a lot and use them as rainboots (bad, I know) but they still look good..thanks Ross.
I hope y’all had a good friday, let me know if you like the outfit 🙂
Last week was literally one of my hardest weeks at work, at one point I felt like bursting into tears because of how crazy everything was getting and am glad I work with some really helpful people. But these kind of days make it worthwhile when you have some days off.
All that aside, this was the most epic weekends I’ve had in a long…long time. I found out the bf had a weekend off too and so he decided to take me to one of my bucket list places in WA – Palouse falls.
There were many obstacles that played against us on this weekend together, like my bf being unable to finish work until 12:30noon on Saturday( Palouse falls is 4 hrs away and we had initially planned on leaving by 8am), so I drove the whole way like a mad woman so we would get there at least by sunset and hopefully get sunset views at these amazing waterfalls. On getting there (after a very emotional 3.5hr drive, with the bf trying to convince me we should just drive into Yakima instead and go there on Sunday) we got to the beautiful falls in good time, parked right In Front of the amazing view and basically had the most amazing time walking around and enjoying the whole place.
As you can tell it was an overcast day but these pictures don’t even do Palouse falls justice, it is beautiful, esp if all you see in wa is the greenery, it’s a nice change, seeing how nature re-arranges itself to create incredible things like these(who knew we could find waterfalls in the middle of eastern Washington?)…And the bf was really happy too 😀
We went to Yakima for some more planned events.
I think summer came early in the pnw and am not complaining, the weather has been gorgeous all week and I finally got to enjoy it today, even though I have become accustomed to the rainy and cloudy days. My work week has been very eventful and I couldn’t wait to get a break from all of that, and soak up on some vitamin D.
I almost never wear jeans, since I spent half of my teenage life in jeans, so I decided to double it up!, I used a red belt to pop some color since my shoes matched the denim haha, I needed comfortable shoes I could walk in.
Denim shirt: old navy// pants: HM//shoes: target
tips on a double denim look: wear a different tones of denim, don’t accessorize with more than 2 items, wear different color shoes or belt.
Do y’all (pun intended) like the other side of WA?, I felt a little “mid western/southern cowboy” I have to say. I enjoyed playing with the sunset because I never get the chance to take sunset photos, it was fun.
A few days ago I got to wear my new romper out. I definitely can’t wait to wear it in the warm summer days. Remember my “oh for Pete’s sake” post, the top I wore in that post has the same pattern as my romper, ha!, I bought them together at f21, the fabric is different though….so not the same clothing (as some un-named people tend to think haha)
I wore my forever favorite earrings from Charlotte rousse and a red belt I got from a friend. f21 clothes are not my favorite to be honest because of the poor quality, but I have to give credit where it’s due and this romper is def worth it, inexpensive too.
I felt a little retro-ish in this outfit and I loved it!
What do you, lovely people think?
Happy hump day ladies and gents
So my sister did a remix with this cute print top, styling the top with a skirt and pants. I love them both but I have to say the skirt wins it for me!, for starters, shopping in Kenyan markets almost guarantees unique finds like the dress top. I think the print is rather unique, have you seen/do you own a print like the that?
And the shoes are to die for! I always shy away from bright colored shoes, esp pink but now am convinced I could rock them. I think I would call this outfit bold and fierce , same words I would describe my sister lol.
Let’s not forget the clutch too, so cute! I could definitely see myself with that. All in all I love the remix style, the pants would be perfect for a day of shopping and running errands, while the skirt would be perfect for dinner, brunch or church, which is what my sister dressed it for.
I think this is a good example of being well dressed without wasting money on clothing items, I hear a lot of girls talking about how dressing up daily would cost them money, but dressing up doesn’t mean wearing designer clothes and new clothes everyday (unless of course if you can afford that – then read no more lol), learning to shop your closet, buy sales items and thrift shopping can result to amazing outfits.
Lastly, is that hair style a Kenyan trend now? Lupita nyong’o had a similar hair style for SAG awards and I saw a lot of girls saying it wasn’t age appropriate and that she looked like a child?
I think it’s very cute and appropriate for adults. What do you think guys?
“Stay inspired and stylish my friends” ✌️
This is definitely my favorite winter dress from F21. It was love at first sight when I saw it one lovely evening after binge-watching madmen and feeling very “1960s”. I adore 1960s fashion like no-one does!!!, so cute and perfect.
Lately I have been finding a lot of inspirational personal blogs that have sparked something inside in terms of fashion. I hate dressing like a slob, especially because my work involves wearing scrubs that are not flattering at all, and I wear them almost every single day of the week. Therefore putting an outfit together is rather important. I am the kind of person who gets dressed up to a coffee shop to people-watch (especially tacoma or Seattle coffee shops where i get to see eccentric fashion styles that just make me happy)
Street style is definitely my thing, i love seeing people in the streets with all their different personal tastes. That’s why I fall hard in love with independent fashion bloggers that are raw and realistic, style comes in all shapes and sizes and it is important for girls of all sizes to feel beautiful through whatever it is they decide to express themselves through.
I had the epiphany that light was laughter and laughter was light, and that this was the secret of the universe 🙂
Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit
Things am really excited about right now? having a day off from the long stretch of draining work days. I love my job, but working with sick people who constantly need you for help can be draining in ways I cannot describe. My whole thing was looking forward to binge-watching madmen, listening to my favorite audiobook (the goldfinch) on my commute from work and hanging out with my favorite person, but I have finished both madmen and the book and I don’t know what to do with myself anymore! I got into Hart of dixie for a while because of all the cute outfits the cast wears but I just fell off that train (too much cliches in the storyline) and started watching parks and rec for some laughs. It’s also unbelievable that January is almost over and tax season is upon us (yes please). I have to say that I am loving my new attitude in this cold and grey weather, I have been very outdoorsy, trying new things, complaining less…..lets hope this carries on until spring.
I didn’t realize how much school consumed my life until now, even though i have a full-time job, I feel so free (even though i wish i had more hours in day) and “normal”, i guess the fact that i was always a full-time student for the last four years had just become a normal for me and stress was part of my life without even noticing.
On other news, I recently wore this cute top from f21. I went to the mall to use up my hm gift card and could not resist popping into f21 after I got an email stating all sale items were 50% off!!!, unfortunately i didn’t get a sale item(after hrs of searching for something cute – everything was in large sizes 😦 ), so I walked to the spring section and fell in love with this fabric:
So I ended up with the peter pan collar crop top(i live for the 60s 🙂 ) and a jumper/romper with the same fabric, I haven’t worn the romper yet, but here are more pics of the crop top:

This season for some odd reason all my dreams are comprised of camel colored Blazers/coats, despite the fact that it’s not fall anymore but who care about rules?.I love how subtle and warm the color is, and the many possibilities you have with it in terms of outfits. I recently pinned this outfit;
And then my sister wore a similar outfit on her birthday (and no, she didn’t know about my obsession) – you know what they say about great minds 😊
This is what she wore as she celebrated her birthday and ran errands around the city (Nairobi)
I fell in love with the washed out jeans and how well the leopard print flats went with the whole outfit ( as far as we are concerned here, leopard print is neutral 😉)
Am left wishing I was back home so I could steal some pieces of this outfit, and enjoy the 70 degree weather too…
