The sun is shining, it's getting warmer, am getting darker by the day & have no interest at all in wearing tight-fitted jeans. Mom jeans, boyfriend jeans & straight leg jeans are my thing at the moment, combined with summery tops & accessories & I am ready for this 'early summer'.
Now that Spring has decided to play 'Hide & Seek' with this year, I guess that it's wise for us to also try & sneak in some color into our outfits. Of course we still have to keep ourselves warm but also try to brighten up the dark days that are still upon us.
What inspires your outfit decisions? For me, of course keeping in mind the weather or what I have planned for the day, most of my inspiration is got from the Internet (Pinterest & Instagram to be exact). I used to also like leafing through glossy fashion magazines but truth be told, I barely have time these days to do that. This outfit was inspired by Kourtney Kardashian, who in my opinion is the best dressed in the whole K. Family. But of course seeing that she paired her look with those...
There were days when I would accompany my husband to the hardware store & show very little interest in what he was there to look for or to buy. But in the last couple of months, I have suddenly started initiating such visits (to his surprise) as I try to keep up with my DIY projects whose results I can't wait to share with you.
Thrifting always feels like a treasure hunt for me because I never know what am going to find, which make the experience even more exciting. And just like every treasure hunt, there are times that you come out empty handed but of course there are also days that are pretty successful. This whole look is a combination of some of my successful finds that have found a happy place in my wardrobe which will make regular appearances on my Blog, as evident here & here.
If only my work week would start on such a high note every time. I won the 'Fashion Designer of the Year 2017' award at the African Women in Europe Award Ceremony that took place in Berlin on Saturday. I am still on 'Cloud 9' & so so grateful to God & to everyone who in one way or another have been with me on this amazing journey. This award is not only mine but for us all. Thank you all so much.
Hope that I am not too late for the 'Mom-jeans' party but as they say, 'better late than never'. And as I always approach trends with caution, this new discovery was fround on Ebay, for a fraction of it's original price. Let's just say, I am already shopping for another pair of Mom-jeans to add to my collection because it is everything that i need in a pair of jeans, & especially in the warmer months.
