 Hey guys! 
Don't be fooled by how beautifully bright these photos and my outfit look.It's been pouring heavily out here.I took these photos some weeks ago when the sun was with us every other day.I've had enough of these rainy days that have seen me poured on severely on a number of days.So I just thought guys are enjoying summer elsewhere so it might be a good idea to share nice and bright colors.
It's interesting that this pleated top somehow makes me look bigger than I actually am but I don't mind it.In fact,I absolutely love it.Beautiful and orange it is ,perfect for sunny days.I turned to this yellow scarf yet again to cover my hair before I could go get it done at the salon.I have always loved how brown and orange work so smoothly together so by all means,this brown ,woven bag and a lighter brown skinny belt had to be included.Of course the belt does a great job rediscovering my almost lost waistline.I haven't worn these brogues in quite some time so I thought,why not?

Hello Guys!
This is one of the oldest dresses I own.There was actually a time when I never even owned a dress.Scratch that, I only had one .Don't get me wrong,I've always been a girlie girl, it's just that I knew how to bring out the girl in me in all those pants.One thrifting trip that saw me come across a pink and a white dress changed everything.These days,I find myself wearing dresses very often.I bought this one long ago.Nice, simple and strapless.It's one that I can wear in so many different ways and I love it.My favorite is how I styled it for my " how to wear a plaid shirt" series here.
So I was wondering what to wear for an afternoon outing this day and it just hit me,the little blue dress.The sunshine outside was perfect for this kind.Best part about a dress,when you wear it,you're already almost done.I was searching for a darker belt amongst the ones I own and suddenly decided to go all bright with a bright pink one.I decided to make things easier by matching my loops with my belt and finished with a cute pair of open shoes.

Fashion Catalogues
When you open a credit account with a fashion catalogue, you'll discover clothes that you won't normally find on the UK high street. Here are two of the best fashion catalogues available. 




1. Next

Next is a fashion catalogue that packs an almighty punch, with loads of clothes available for men, women and children. You can find hundreds of items on the Next website (just search for your favorite products using the search feature or use the navigation options to see different product pages). You'll be able to open a  new credit account  , over the phone or when you visit your nearest Next store. The company has hundreds of retail locations across the UK, which provides you with additional benefits to some other catalogue brands. As a new customer, you could receive a discount on your first purchase, saving you more money in the long run. Also, use a voucher code to save cash on your order. Next stock items like coats, shoes, jeans, shirts, trousers, casual clothes and more, as well as household items, toys and gifts. 





2. Very


Very recently introduced a new way of paying for clothes from their catalogues. If you pay for your order in three monthly instalments, you won't have to pay any interest on your purchase. For more details, see the Very website. The catalogue brand is one of the largest in the UK, with a number of credit and delivery options. Have your purchase delivered to your door the very next day, ideal if you need something for an upcoming event. At Very, you'll find everything from shoes to shirts, ties to trousers, with clothes for men, women and children. You can discover new products by using the search feature or by clicking on the various navigation options on the page. As a customer, you'll receive a monthly statement with details of your credit balance, minimum monthly repayment and a list of purchases you've made during the previous billing period.

Hiiiii Haaaa! Or atleast that's what I normally hear cowboys say everytime(I think).Yo, I'm a Kenyan girl with a dream.Can't go to the country so I'm bringing the country to myself.
Buenos Dias a todos.Como estais? Yeah,my Spanish hasn't left me.A little beautiful bird told me it was country concert season somewhere and I'm glad she did because I got challenged. Challenged  by King Ranch to style an outfit I'd wear to one of those.
I have always loved the country style of dressing.I was so excited I ended up styling two looks.Can I just say,I see where watching all those Alejandros,Claritas,Pedros,Louisas,Maria de Samparadas ,Emilianos,in short all that Telemundo got me.I used to have an addiction to those soaps when I was a kid and a teen.I must say,those people have great culture.Anyway,wasn't just me,my baby sister too which explains how she ended up forcing me literally to buy this pink hat some years back.
I am generally a person with a preference of wearing jeans to concerts .I love concerts .So for this country look I wore these jeans with my cowgirl boots. If you're looking to complete your country look this season you could check out these other great
cowgirl bootsI only have one such hat,something I'm about to change soon.I also love wearing leather, metallics and dark colors to concerts so I incorporated that into this look by going for this black crop top with a heart that gives a metallic feel to this look not to mention the silver sequins on my hat.Of course,one last thing,the bandana and what better way to go than brown to go with my belt and earrings.
I'd love to attend one of those by the way especially if it's got Carrie Underwood performing.I'd bring my friends along and we'd dance to all that music.

Sure I have very sensitive skin.Like I literally get sun burns,sometimes bad burns when I walk under the sun too long without sunscreen on, to think I'm not even light skinned.It happens but there's no denying that I love the sun.I love to feel the rays against my skin.It's just a pity I don't live at the coast where there's a beautiful beach for me to lounge on and the sun always shines,well at least most of the time.Oh I miss the good weather.Today the sun came out and it was very warm earlier.I thought it'd be here to stay but no, it's raining heavily again now so I'm indoors doing this random Sunday post,remembering the good ol' sunny days back in school.I never got to post these pictures so here.
I'd been basking all morning at the roof top of this building since I had no classes back on this particular day some months ago. I always  loved being up there whenever I wanted to think,relax or have a nice little chat with one or two friends.I was starting to get a bit sweaty around my face but before descending,I had to take these pictures and I'm glad I did.
So despite not going anywhere all day, a girl's gotta look nice even when wearing a laid back outfit.I hate the idea of having an encounter with people looking my worst.The idea scares me.A comfortable outfit is exactly what I needed so I chose to wear this purple chiffon top with some white addition.Purple remains my favorite color.It's a pretty one whose brightness is just enough.I threw on a comfortable pair of jeans and wore some black flats.I added the necklace so I wouldn't look so plain and this hat completed the simple look.
