Mini Me – White Maxi Dress

minime maxi dress

For as long as I can remember I have always loved sunrises and sunsets. And lately I have found that they are definitely my best times of the day.
I am not an early riser, especially when I have no morning appointments to keep. But the sunrises we experience here on our beautiful Kenya coast are wonderful!

And when I am here in my coastal home, the thought of enjoying them is just about the only thing which can get me out of bed before 7am.
This is one such morning, when I was lucky enough to enjoy a spectacular sunrise with my daughter Nielsine on the beach in front of our home. The rainy season has set in with force, the dull clouds and sun fight for a place in the sky, Its beautiful to be able capture such light. We love the beach so much, and we go there at least once or twice a day, especially in the early morning or late afternoon.

Our white matching maxi dresses reminded me of a wedding, and my dream is one day to say “I do” on the beach in the wonderful light of the rising sun.

My work as a fashion stylist requires me to spend quite a considerable amount of time at our home in Nairobi. Occasionally, I go there with my daughter, but mostly, my Nairobi stays means that I have to be away from my family. I love my job, but I miss my family at the coast, the beach, our dogs, and all all the other joys Nielsine constantly gives me.

I am so happy that more and more flights are now available to take me home. Especially those of Jambojet which just inaugurated daily flights to three more destinations on the Kenyan coast. Lamu, Ukunda and Malindi. I can’t wait to visit these places with Jambojet in the coming weeks, and share the beauty of what Kenya has to offer. Their flights are comfortable, convenient – and good value for money!
I try to balance work with family life, and I think I am doing a pretty good job at it. My frequent stays in Nairobi make it so much sweeter to fly home to my wonderful daughter to spend quality time with her. I feel so blessed to be able to enjoy the best of both worlds – thanks to the wings in the sky.

Style Note

For mini-me looks, I go for simple cuts and classic designs. I avoid over-the-top designs that would be overwhelming on her.
