Long, Flowy Silhouettes

Pin It
One of the things I love about my new challenge of getting a minimalist wardrobe is that all the pieces I own make me excited with just the thought of wearing them. Take this dress for instance, it's like a kaftan or a cover-up that you use at the beach. It has gorgeous colours, is made of chiffon making it light and breezy for those warmer days and I can pair it with a skirt or trousers, not to mention it has buttons running down the front which makes it excellent for breastfeeding (you can read my post on what to wear when breastfeeding here) and the thigh high slits make it just a tad naughty.
I wore this to Church last Sunday. Since the dress is a statement piece on it's own, I wanted to keep my accessories muted. I paired it with black stilettos, a simple chain and loop earrings. I got the bag from my sister and love the size and style. I finished off with purple lip stick.
 Outfit Details: Chiffon dress: Gikomba; Skirt: Botique i2s; Shoes: Chandigarh, India; Bag: gift; Earrings and necklace: gift

TRENDS TO TRY: The Bucket Bag

Pin It
Happy new month loves! If you have been following the blog for a while you've probably heard me say that I love bags. I used to buy bags so much that at some point I had too many and even forgot that some existed. Last week I posted about backpacks, a must-have for any woman who wants a change from regular handbags. This week, we are looking at bucket bags.
I love these bags because they tend to hold more than my other handbags (my water bottle can fit inside). You can carry it when dressed formally or casually with little to no effort. They come with long or short straps but I prefer the longer strap. The drawstring makes it a bit more cumbersome to open like at security checks when entering buildings but when a bag is this awesome you can't complain about a few drawbacks. I got one late last year when thrift shopping with my mum and I've carried it a thousand times. I love the fact that it's genuine leather which means it will last a long time. Then there's the fact that it's Hermes bought at 100 KSh. Talk about a designer bag at a SUPER bargain!
