A pop of color: Style & Fashion

Playing around with bright colors is one of the great things you can do when it comes to dressing. Whether it’s color blocking or going for complementing colors you can brighten you overall look with the simplest of outfits without necessarily breaking the bank. One thing I enjoy doing, is pulling out an outfit effortlessly.

There are so many interesting combinations that can arise from playing around with colors to make you unique. You can also add a pop of color by going for bright accessories and let the colors do the magic. The choice is absolutely upon you.

Today I’m rocking this crop top in tropical colors combined with a double layered mastard skirt. The combination creates such an interesting color palette for that edgy look. Besides that the Comfort is so amazing.

What are your favorite color combinations? Do you prefer color blocking or going for complementing colors?

COLD WEATHER OUTFITS, FASHION TIPS

3 ways of styling Jeggings during cold season

I don’t know if you also feel like its July and not September!

Evidently, the weather pattern has dramatically changed. I’ve heard so many people complaining that the cold wasn’t kind enough to warn them! Well to help you curb the cold, today i’m going to share with you three quick ways of rocking jeggings.

You might love your dresses, skirts or denim but heavy Jeggings are another great alternative of keeping you warm and stylish especially when the weather is alittle bit gloomy. The essence is to find good quality ones with a great fit.

I will basically be styling black turkish Jeggings which I got from Unisex Midland Boutique, along Monrovia Street. They have been my besties for over 3 years. Oh yes! and i’m still sold out on them like 100%. They are one of my wardrobe staples because they have a remarkably comfortable amount of stretch which is very key for me as a plus sized woman.

Look 1: Jeggings with an orange mini butterfly waterfall

My very first look pairs the Jeggings with this cute mini butterfly waterfall. The pieces blend so well with these black midi boots which have served me for quite a while from Qash Kali. I’m really hoping they have them in stock just incase you want them. If they don’t have you can always recreate with similar or even better ones.

Love this shade of orange. It tremendously brightens everything up.

This waterfall is one of my favorites from Vivo Woman. The black cowl tunk top I’m wearing inside is also from the same store.The last time I checked they had the waterfalls in turquoise, yellow, blue and pink amongst other colors.

I decided to go with these midi boots which introduced a whole new edgy touch to the entire look.

Look 2: Jeggings with an off white kimono

The same Jeggings and black cowl top, were paired with this off white long kimono for the second look. I love the way it beautifully drapes. Kimonos are always in my inner circle of essential wardrobe pieces. The texture is so lovely. Not only is it warm but the comfort is amazing too.

I wore these black and white sneakers. I think they add an element of casual interest to the look.

This look would definitely have looked more chic with cute sandals as well but since it was abit wet I opted for these sneakers.

Look 3: Jeggings with poncho

For my third look I rocked this warm grey poncho from Jade Collections. The material is so soft against the body. Love the interesting checked pattern going on.

I side tucked the poncho to add some sass. You definitely don’t have to tuck it in.

I finally crowned the look with these ankle boots from heel to toe for that polished look.

I probably should have gone abit bold with accessories but I opted for a chilled out look today. You can definitely elevate all these looks with accessories of your choice.

Why you need a chic sweater dress!

If you are looking for a great trans-seasonal piece which will see you through from cold to warm weather consider incorporating a sweater dress into your wardrobe. I am so excited that i finally started this Fashion and Style Blog. It gives me a great platform to express myself. I feel so awakened when i indulge in such conversations.

As the weather changes over from cold to warm, sweater dresses are quite something! Most of the weekends when I’m up and down running my errands i always rock canvas shoes. I find that pairing a sweater dress with these kind of shoes gives me an ultra comfy yet extremely chic look.This look makes me feel neither overdressed nor under-dressed. What a perfect transitioning attire. I distinctively adore my canvas in white! Very specific…huh! I know right! I find them very practical with most of the outfits in my wardrobe.

Style serving: Chic navy blue stripped sweater dress paired with the versatile white canvas

Whoever said that money can’t buy happiness, simply didn’t know where to go shopping! I am always delighted when i get value for my money. If you are in Nairobi, Kenya and you’d like to get high quality sweater dresses at great prices, Toi Market at Adams Arcade is the place to go for shopping! You will be spoilt for choice as they have a variety of sweater dresses and much more. As for the white canvas shoes, check Bata Kenya. They have lots of varieties.
