I think it’s safe to say that El Nino’s finally over..
….and I couldn’t be happier! Ever since I came back from the UK I always have this feeling that I should never take the sun for granted, because, well, living through 2 winters (my first Winter being January 2014 when I left a hot and sunny Nairobi for a cold, rainy, snowy London. I know it’s only 2 Winters, but it counts!) makes you miss the sun. A lot.
Since then, I’ve always told myself to take advantage of the good weather and dress
appropriately for it. Plus, I do enjoy putting summery outfits together. I feel like I always give myself the chance to let my body positivity (or rather baby steps to 99% body positivity) shine through. I have flabby arms, large thighs with cellulite that sometimes make them look like an orange peel, stretchmarks, ingrown hairs on my legs, dark knees, you name it. If there ever was a woman you met that had lots of scars and marks all over their body, that would be me. *raises hand*
In a way, I do feel like I always challenge myself to wear casual clothes that are out of my comfort zone. It’s not only clubbing outfits that are risqué, even casual clothes can make you do exactly that. A few years back, wearing sleeveless tops was something I considered risqué. Don’t believe me? I just may put up a post on my actual fashion journey and how long it’s taken me to gather enough self confidence to wear a sleeveless top and a sort-of short skirt. [Short is relative of course.] I must say, I’m proud of myself for sticking it out this far, never thought I actually would! And anyway, what’s not to love about a white skirt and a sleeveless top and an A-line skirt. Doesn’t get more summery than that, innit?
Top, Earrings and Sandals – New Look
Skirt – Thrifted
Watch – Gifted
There’s something about this over-exposed photo that I love.
I wore this outfit to a late lunch on the first Saturday this year and I was so chuffed about it I had to share it. I love it when the weather is all nice and summery and I wear a nice skirt and top that makes me feel all summery too! I’m even excited just thinking about it. Lol. Sometimes I find myself even thinking of outfits I’ll wear over the weekend. Am I weird? No shame in my love for putting outfits together.
Anyway guys, I do hope your week’s going great! Next post will be up next week.
