Something for the Little Boys

How was your weekend?

I spent my Saturday in the village at my grandma’s farm in Gilgil, for a family gathering.

You asked for something for the little boys , and I was listening. Here it is. I hope you like it !



I haven’t managed to spend as much time as I hoped I would with my nephew this school holiday. So this outfit is pretty much all I managed to do for him.

This is his first ankara outfit and what better place to wear it than at this family occasion.

Steve, is my elder brother Brian’s 5-year old son. And now a very protective cousin to Nielsine. He takes the ‘big cousin’ title with pride. No one can touch her without using hand sanitizer for example …. lol


I love the shirt so much ! So proud of the result. Check it out!

My maxi dress is from Steve’s Collection in Bishan Plaza, Westlands.

There was a light drizzle at some point. Beautiful day never the less.






I like this design and I think I want to make a dress in this similar style and give it a little twist.

I also adore the mandarin collar on the dress





My grandma said it was very fashionable. :)

We had fun playing in the maize fields when the sun came out again.

While in Europe, last Christmas, I found that H&M had cute affordable quality baby stuff and maternity clothes. Her outfit is by H&M.

I wish you a great start to the week.

    Silvia…. Aaahhhhh… I was looking for a DIY tutorial because boys….

    I LOVE your maxi its very vintage and your grandma is right.. Old is gold.

    I have a son and I can pomise you they have the most expensive clothing(if you manage to find the right size). They are all the same and for a creative mother like myself its tad boring to walk with my son and see all lil boys with the same outfit. That said, I will try google patterns.. and *try

    Thanks you.
