Dainty Things

Hey guys! Today is another ootd shot in Malindi that has me having major Marilyn Monroe moments.




It’s a tricky dress to wear because it looves rising with the wind, and the silhouette means that the pleated layered look doesn’t really help with that. I still love it though, it’s one of my favourites because I loove to show some leg and this dress is perfect for that.IMG_20151005_050932



The round collar neck helps me feel all covered up, and gives the illusion that I’m not showing much skin even without sleeves. So it’s balances – loots of leg at the bottom but a more demure top to bring it all in.




That’s why I think it’s dainty. It’s a beautiful blue shade and it’s soft and frilky and I love it. So I paired it with strap sandals and a sling bag to go with the causal vibe of it all. It’s a whole lot of blue happening but I like it. And it helps that I could have the amazing pool as a backdrop lol.




I thought it was time for an ootd post just to keep things balanced. I’ve been out and about sooo much that I don’t even know where to start getting us caught up lol.


I finally got to attend a discussion/poetry meet called Fatuma’s Voice, along with my very first Instagram Meet up! Exciting weekend but super busy, so I’m exhausted going into the week lol but alas, a winner for the pizza contest must be chosen so I have to have my A-game on




As always, thanks for dropping by!! ☺☺
