Boyfriend Shirt

So we ‘borrow’ men’s clothes. (eye roll) So we like to wear their tees and shirts. (eye roll) SO WHAT? At this point I’m practically ready to raid all my friends’ closets. A shirt per male specimen should be the general rule in any group of friends. Rebecca Do you second me on this?We should all shake on it and get on with our fashion lives. The good thing ladies is we don’t need no man for this trend, unless of course we want to do the trend per se, spend nothing on achieving the look, and nail it 100%. Hence the two ways in which Boyfriend shirts trend can be done: we either buy menswear inspired shirts in a few sizes up, OR we simply borrow from the beautiful boys in our lives. God knows shirts are their uniforms, might as well capitalise on those,Just saying…..

But for this case,didn’t grab mine from anyone,I purchased it and what really drew me to it was the grey color since am trying to change my closet to pastel colors and earth tones. I didn’t want to add other colors so I paired my grey boyfriend shirt with light grey jeans and brown loafer shoes.

Have you ever hi-jacked ur boyfriends’ clothes?  Share with me in the comments box.

Beige becomes Art

Am I the only one who has been going crazy for beige and nude colour pallettes lately?The winter whites phenomena is catching on for many good reasons. First off, beige and nudes are very delicate and feminine, adding that soft and ethereal quality to any look. It’s very subtle yet elegant and classy.

Secondly, it is a a new and refreshing option to the expected all black everything look.


It also looks great on all skin tones when done perfectly. Flesh tone outfits in nudes, beige and pastels have looked good one everyone from Angelina Jolie to Lupita Nyongo’o. I have been obsessed with pastel colours and it’s tricky to pull them off without looking washed out. So execution counts big time when wearing flesh tone colours and nude on dark skin tones especially.

What are your thoughts on this?

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.

Literally My Style😘

Welcome back from the long weekend.  It’s so far the longest one we’ve had since the year began,(correct me if I’ve forgotten). I hope y’all had fun especially my Muslim buddies who were celebrating Eid al dha. One would think I actually did much but waaah, spent it with my family despite the plans I had made,(typical me).

If you know me,then you know blazers and jeans are “literally my style”. It is satisfying for me because it’s the closest I can have to looking formal taking into account that much of my work is creative,and always in the field.  I can wear them 24,7,365, and trust me,you won’t get bored each time you see me. You can acquire that by having different kinds of Blazers from the plain ones,to the striped ones,printed or even florals ones,you will be taken aback by how a blazer maximizes your look without adding much effort,(I can never have enough of them). This is also accentuated with the kind of accessories you layer your outfit with that determine whether it’s casual or formal. Add heels or pumps depending on how convinient it is for you and call it a statement look for the day. 
            Keep it simple,keep it chic!

               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

                            Guys, 

how in the world are you? I’ve seriously missed blogging so much! I couldn’t be more excited to be back,specially in an off shoulder ASOS top that I think everyone should atleast own or perhaps have a similar one. 

It’s so cozy and comfortable yet I still felt beautiful and put together. If you’re plus size or know anyone that is,you definitely know how hard it is to find such tops in our size range 😏. Your going to see me wearing more of “off shoulder clothes” coz they are my favorite this season. I paired the top with high-waisted H&M ankle grazer sky blue jeans which defined my shape making me look chic. All those days I was away,flat sandles became my favorite,don’t say I didn’t tell you when they get common on the blog. 

The best part of sharing my journey is connecting with you guys. I love hearing your creative input, comments, and suggestions so please keep them coming my way (: Honestly they help keep me grounded and feeling extremely motivated. To know that we’ve not only found each other, connected, but are also growing together is seriously amazing and I feel beyond grateful.

Elegance is simplicity 


I do have a way with words sometimes, but some other times it’s just blah blah blah… Bare with me as I have a strong feeling that today might just be one of those blah days…..



This outfit looks like a dress,but it’s a top and a skirt. The material of the top is a light stretchy scuba that doesn’t ride up or cling,it’s abit Off the shoulders that adds elegance to my outfit,the tulle skirt is super comfortable,it has a black ribbon that also contributes to the elegance of the outfit. I finished my look with a pair of black heels and a black box bag. To me,elegance is simplicity.
