Wearing For Sweater Weather

Processed with VSCO with p5 presetToday isn’t one of those days where i get to runt all post,am here to share with you how i wear for the sweater weather(trying to make the chilly weather sound fancy), I’ve enjoyed a couple of cold-weather teasers the past days. Although the change of weather affects me, i love that i get to keep my sweater or jacket on all day long,oh Gosh! If you know me, you know how much my love for layering pieces is, and also, not being a fun of  color blocking so you wouldn’t find me having more than 3 bright colors (don’t get me wrong if its your style), that should explain why most of my outfits are monochrome. Putting this outfit together was so easy thanks to Catchy classy that had me sorted out with these super soft and comfortable trousers,belt and bag, the free-size cozy rugged sweater has always been in archives for as long as a year, i added the belt to emphasize my waist and make my look edgy. My go to style for the chilly weather is blazers and sweaters. Feel free to let me know about yours in the comment box.Processed with VSCO with p5 presetProcessed with VSCO with p5 presetProcessed with VSCO with p5 presetProcessed with VSCO with p5 presetProcessed with VSCO with p5 presetBag, Pants, and Accessories from Catchy classy

Won and Trusted Bottoms

Processed with VSCO with p5 presetI figured something a lot of times these past months. There lots of things we absorb unknowingly on the internet that influence our thoughts, words and actions. In fact, there’s a criteria to live our lives that the the world has taught us that we have accepted unconsciously as the the only way to live. What if we realize we have been living life the opposite way, like what we think we were doing right is actually the opposite, the foods we were avoiding are actually the ones we are supposed to eat? Have you ever thought of that? Share with me your opinions in the comment box.

Fashion is a world of cornucopia( thought i should use that word) when it comes to new trends. Every season is filled with an abundance of so called “must have pieces that every girl should get“. Sometimes that overdose of advice can drive us either into a shopping frenzy resulting in bad buys or simply gives way to fashion sobriety. In exactly those moments of sartorial insecurity, it’s good to know you have a hero you can rely on: the won and trusted white Bottoms (Pants). The good news is you don’t need to be a certain type of fashionista to rock white pants, there are million of ways to style them.  Though if you asked me about my absolute favorite way to work it into my style, I’d go for edging out femininely chic looks like this one. Let me know how you like to style your white pants and what you think of mine?Processed with VSCO with p5 presetProcessed with VSCO with p5 presetProcessed with VSCO with p5 presetBTPE1673Processed with VSCO with p5 preset

bdcf4403-2d33-4986-80e5-30e8712bfebc-1One of my favorite things to do is “social media stalking” (don’t know whether that qualifies as a hobby), so as i was stalking, I came a cross a life changing status on a friend’s whatsapp story on a “dying woman’s heartbreaking letter to the world“, (get it first class here Holly Butcher). She wrote it a day before she passed on. One of the things she mentioned in her letter was,”There will come a time and all the quotes, messages videos you see on social media that you read and ignore will make sense”,This to me was like a reflecting moment in my life. There so many times when I come across such stuff and not mind them, did it have to be from a dying woman for me to learn? There’s much to learn from her letter, It taught me never to take life for granted, Appreciate and respect everyone in my life, Utilize my time to do the things I love and most importantly, make time for God! My greatest mistake in 2017 was taking time off to figure out my blogging career. For something that I passionately adore, I must say, I honestly dozed off. Truth be told, even as i was off and thought I would research more and come back with better content, I got distracted and almost disappeared. It came to strike me later that instead of quitting for 12 months, I should’ve held on, continued with my work while doing research on how to better myself. Perhaps it was a breather for me to realize how important this is (consolation). We know, a creative mind shouldn’t be left redundant for it gets rusted and also, once time is lost, its never regained.

Now, Today is here, with me having learnt my lesson in Green, and gold Block heels filled with comfort  and the confidence I have with my style like i never left (insert a wink emoji), Wearing extravagant Stripped Palazzo pants with almost ground flowing waist strings, an off shoulder top, Green double-breasted Blazer and corduroy patent leather shoulder/handbag ready for what ever comes my way.24fd6311-9bc3-483a-a9c0-9c78c5d505c3-132f3bf7f-5419-42f3-ae9a-4b89fc64cfea-126ee26d5-9db4-46ba-82d2-472cfc317474-18b8777b3-5862-4d97-9608-570e5eb910b2

My Trip to Arusha

IMG_7282Arushaa!!!!! What an experience. I wish I can describe this trip as good or bad but that’ll simply be impossible. I was there for a day but it was worthwhile. First off, you can’t dose off on the plane because of the beautiful scenery of the hills and their tallest mountains, Mt Kilimanjaro (Highest Mountain in Africa) and Mt Meru ( 5th highest in Africa). Secondly, there these Umbrella-shaped canopy trees that flower during the month of December, the locals call them Christmas trees that are planted at kilimanjaro International Airport and along the way that give you a warm welcome or wish you a safe flight to wherever your going.

For my one night, i stayed at the Beautiful Mount Meru Hotel, Arusha’s famous hotel also known as the “The Gem of Arusha”. The hotel blends stylishly elegant African architecture with supremely luxurious rooms and sparkling water gardens with beautifully landscaped gardens. I usually don’t fancy staying in a foreign country for long because its costly, i easily get bored and always want to get a reason to go back. But for this case, i was there to link up with a friend i hadn’t seen in a while, this was our only chance or at least meet after 6 months, and we weren’t gonna let that happen cos this time, we were closer to each other, also it was the festive season and i had to spend it with my family as it is a tradition. My very short stay at the hotel was incredibly nice because i got to use all the services something i never get to do because am always on the rush to step out and do other adventurous activities in the area. I really like Mt Meru hotel for its atmosphere. Nothing beats space/layout. You can choose to sit outside or inside and get two completely different atmosphere. My room at the hotel had a very beautiful view of Mt Meru. The service of the hotel is great and the people are warm. I would definitely go back to the hotel and spend more time, but with a photographer to capture my moments. The photos aren’t enough to show how beautiful the hotel is, with mind blowing views., Ever been to mt meru hotel, what do you think about it? Please share your views in the comment box below.

No to waste 

One of the things that I love to do when styling my looks is layer two elements that are inherently opposite yet can still work together. After all, fashion is supposed to be fun and every now and then you have to try some new combinations.

So with this outfit, I layered a long open black dress that I purchased but was a size smaller and wasn’t fitting right,but as mama taught me,”never to let anything go to waste”,I thought using it as a throw-on would be a good idea,as you see,the dark blue jeans and the dress work well together even though they are opposites.  Also, the front zipper bodysuit that exudes lusciousness is a great staple that can be worn by itself or as a layering piece. 

You can  always make something work.

               Hello lovely Readers

Allow me congratulate my country Uganda for qualifying for the Afcon after 38yrs,of which am sure majority of you weren’t yet born. We hoped and prayed,they never gave up and worked harder. They made us proud,they made us shine,as the Pearl we are,of Africa. Go UGANDA CRANES!!

Now…there’s nothing quite like the glam of “layering an outfit” especially when updated with a trendy modern style. Layering is one of those trends that never fades. One of the reasons why we want to layer clothes is to show off the contrast between different colours and cuts, so there is no need to be dull and boring and wear a single colour for all your layers. Be bold, layer a white blouse with a beige midi sleeveless coat like I did or  Also mix and match patterns with solids. The whole idea here is to make each of your layers clearly visible for a complete fashion statement,and you will make heads turn while you walk down the street!…Something i live for😆

           Layering is worth doing well

If you stay or have been in my country(Uganda) for the past 2 weeks or even today,you then know how hot it really has been,that’s among the things I love about my country,is it right for me to say it’s  always summer the whole year?😝😉

    
  
Anyway,The color of this suit is super luxe and sophisticated,it can make any one look good with out too much effort.  The color is definitely a great addition to the look.  The mesh inserts show skin in yet a simple way. A white swimsuit is the ultimate sexy poolside staple. 


Style tip: Many plus size women feel uncomfortable rocking a 2piece bikini for fear of showing the tummy. Worry no more, a high-waist 2piece bikini just made everything simpler,or perhaps,u could also add a throw-on,on ur bikini and feel more comfortable,that way it doesn’t seem like ur just wearing just a 2piece.
