I love this skirt both because it is colourful and happy with all its poppies, but also because I have a little story to go with it. I saw it in a short glimpse one day when I was driving to the car wash, and proceeded to be stuck in traffic for 30mins!
The rains are heavy this year and I hope the farmers are happy. But for us living in an urban environment they mainly bring cold and miserable weather – even on the coast, although the milder temperatures here make the wet and windy weather easier to bear. This is when it becomes imperative to protect yourself against the rage of the elements.
I can’t tell you how happy and excited I am finally to have launched my new blog STYLE YETU, www.styleyetu.com two weeks ago, which I think some of you have already discovered. Working in the fashion industry in Kenya for close to 8 years now, I felt that there were so many stories that I could tell, and already a year and a half ago I started to dream about sharing these stories. But somehow I felt that my personal blog was not the appropriate platform for such a variety of posts. I wanted to keep this space as my own to share my journey and my style, which is why I finally decided to create an entirely new blog for this endeavour.
I don’t think there is any other color in this world I wear more than black. I believe this is true for most people, such an easy color to wear and looks good on everybody and that is why I find it hard to believe that Vogue’s editor Anna Wintor says that she would never wear an all black outfit. What is a closet without this classic colour?
I do not know about you, but if you are like me and I believe most women are (at least among my friends) there is that one bag which you cannot put down. I have sometimes carried the same handbag every day for close to two weeks, occasionally switching it up for extra dressy days. It’s a beautiful relationship to have, a bag that takes you from office to church, a bag that has space for your make up bag, notebooks and heck even an extra pair of shoes!!
