A lady’s best friend

DSC_0301_Fotor
Am back home now and it honestly feels good, it’s nice to be back to the norm. Yesterday Ian’s residency program had a dinner party, somewhat formal, so I had to get dressed up a bit. I went through my closet and all my cute dinner dresses are strapless or sleeveless…..but I acquired major sunburns on my arms, chest and back in kauai, so I wanted to hide them as much as possible ha-ha
I live close to a shopping center so I dashed last minute to the stores in search of a cute light weight cover up, but instead fell in love with this dress from Ross

I really love the design of this dress and even though the sleeves aren’t long enough to cover all my sunburns, the beauty of the dress is enough distraction and compensates for the rest ha
I paired the black and nude dress with my nude Marshalls heel sandals, which went perfect! The outfit made me feel grown up, beautiful and confident because I didn’t worry about sunburnt skin showing ha-ha. It was very appropriate for the event and I got compliments yay!

Self potrait

“My thoughts are stars I could not fathom into constellations” – John Green

“I write because I do not know what I think until I read what I say” – Flannery O’Connor

“To be nobody but yourself in a world that’s doing its best to  make  you somebody else, is to fight the hardest battle you are ever going to fight. Never stop fighting.” – e.e cummins

“First, I am very fascinated by how everyone  loves each other, but nobody really likes each other ” – John green

“I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart) I am never without it (anywhere I go you go, my dear, and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling)..” – e.e cummings

DSC_0454_FotorHopefully it will stop raining so I can do get out of the house. Today I really wanted to blog but had nothing to say ha!, so I decided to try do a self-potrait.. you like?

I also binge read other blogs I like, and hadn’t had a chance to read recently. It’s so  refreshing for me to read other people’s perspective on things related to daily boring everyday life, and I also like getting inspired in terms of food, style, working out etc, some of my faves are delightfully tacky by Elizabeth, twenty seven by Michelle and Curious Natalia. I find this ladies blogs “from the heart”  and very unique and personal. It’s obviously very brave for people to share their lives with the wide world web (the good and bad) and I respect such content, despite my disagree-ability  or agree-ability. I honestly hope my blog will go into a similar direction, something someone can relate to, not just nice photos/clothes.

6 pointI 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.

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.

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 🙂

This is Esther – sister style

Hi friends!

Guess who’s on my blog today?
My little sister Ess. She is very stylish and am always looking forward to seeing what she’s put together, so I decided to share her style here.

I love how well the pieces complement each other. A simple black and white outfit gone edgy through the faux leather pants, well balanced by the leopard print flats and brought to life by the very chic coral bag that I dropped dead for (wishing it was mine).
I hope you all love this outfit as much as I do and keeps your eyes peeled for the next 😃

Bag- mr price, kenya
Shoes – bata, Kenya
Top and pants – local flee market
