silvia njoki cover2[su_dropcap style=”simple” size=”1″]O[/su_dropcap]ne of my daughters newest word is matchy-matchy I smile at the thought of how how she crinkles her nose as she says these words. Even at the tender age of two, she is very well aware of overly color co-ordinated outfits. I love to take a direct shot at a matchy-matchy outfit like this, which in all its subtleness  works extremely well for me.  I suppose that the overall white dress is what saves the day, and there is indeed something very forgiving about a neutral color to begin with, which gives you the freedom to play around a bit with matching colors and accessories and overall, visually even out the look. Which reminds me that being able to shoot these pics way above the nerve-wrecking Nairobi traffic, definitely adds another element of freedom to this particular post.
