Oversized in Blue

I happened to come across this beautiful blue, long asymmetrical shirt at Zara recently and i fell instantly in love.

I admit i do love long shirts and more so when they are in light colours.

I find them totally my style and love to dress them down or up depending on my mood.

Its not easy to find one’s that i love so when i actually do i go crazy!

I wear my white and black ones so much that is refreshing to find one in this hue.

Its very different because it almost feels like a cape.

It’s long flowy silhouette is dreamy yet elegant.

I paired mine with black jeans distressed at the hem, black heels in So Kate by Louboutin and a classic Chanel double flap bag.

To toughen up this look i added a layered black choker, a Louis Vuitton cuff and my favourite Celine sunnies.

I am wearing MAC Cosmetics retro liquid lipstick in ” So Me”

Long oversized shirts are becoming a staple in my wardrobe.

They’re fun, flirty, comfortable and elegant for every mom on the go.

Pair your’s with heels or flats, shorts or jeans, either way rock your style at ease!

Love & Lite x

Sage Green

I love wearing a long shirt as a light cover up when the weather acts bipolar.

Nairobi has been sunny one minute and cloudy the next. Our African winter can be quite confusing this time of the year. Thankfully its getting much warmer and you only need a light cardigan or cover up to keep comfortable.

I bought this sage green silk shirt at a Zara store in London a few months ago and wanted to wear it with jeans, but then opted for a dress with fringe detail i had come across at a local boutique in Malindi.

I thought it paired beautifully with the floral detail on the back of the shirt.

Added a beautiful pair of So Kate in 120mm and i was date ready.

Since this shade of green compliments earth tones, i finished the look with a beautiful gold studded bag by Christian Louboutin for Louis Vuitton.

Here is the full look.

I hope you like it, xoxo

Leather pants

Leather pants can be so sexy and there is a pair that flatters everyone.

I love this particular one from Zara and it has the perfect hardware detail without looking too much.

They’re super easy to style with basic tops or bodysuits, add a killer high heel and you’re set to rock a very edgy look.

Have you tried these? If not i definitely recommend at least one in your wardrobe.

Leather faux pants have a very sexy appeal to them and I’m sure won’t disappoint.

I paired mine with my hubbies most favourite Loubies and a cross body Louis Vuitton clutch in silver hardware.

Here is the look.

Choker Trend

Lets sigh for a minute! This style is absolutely fabulous!

Its bold, rich, sophisticated and elegant. Everything you want in a choker.

A trend thats been creeping back thanks to an overall 90’s resurgence.

If you will remember the thin or thick black piece of leather or velvet that is tied in a bow or not around the neck, that has the power of giving bit of grunge but also some sort of dark elegance to any outfit.

While black is the colour of choice, they now get fancier from semiprecious jewels to luxe leathers or really chic dog collars!

The thick ones are a major style statement whereas the thin ones are so sexy and feminine.

They look gorgeous with any outfit, worn on the skin or over some chunky knit sweater.

Even a basic denim jacket and t-shirt are upgraded with this personal favourite accessory or wear it to toughen up a feminine dress.

So can anybody do it, anywhere? I think so.

Wear it alone or use it as a layering piece with a long beaded necklace for a bohe’me vibe.

I also like the fact that the thin ones especially black instantly draw attention to the face, so its a style gimmick that can be played around with a lot.

You can wear your hair loose in beach waves or you can don a very polished look and it’ll be this great 90’s retro glam edgy mix.

Everyones wearing one this year, so are you ready to choke on a fab choker yet?

Grab yours asap as this tiny accessory packs on a major punch and turns even the most basic outfits into major style statements!

Silver Sparkle

Ever want that fresh feeling when you dress up?

I always reach out to silver, white and pale gold shades when I’m feeling a sense of fresh.

The key is to pick the right shade of silver or pale gold.

Keep your complexion in mind and try different shades to figure out which one suit you best.

I personally prefer reaching out to silver pearly shades.

Paired with off white i think it blends in well.

This colour palette screams elegance and sophistication.

There is something about pearly whites and silver that just call my name.

Here i paired two separates, wide leg trousers and a two tone silver gold sleeveless top.

I accessorised with a black clutch since the trousers have a black trim on the bottom.

Add a beautiful pearl, uncut diamond necklace and my absolute favourite Louboutin spikes that are loud and undeniable.

Heres the look, i hope you like it.

Keep it elegant, keep it stylish x

Gorgeous Guipure

Hello my loves.

I am now back from my travels in India and almost settled in again.

Whilst there i did indulge in shopping as any girl would and found that the fashion and street style in Mumbai has evolved so much from the last time i was there.

From long flowy jackets, to high waisted trousers, short ankle length jeans, un- hemmed pants, everything was chic and stylish.

I love to watch people go about their business and what they wear. Its a hobby.

Tees were replaced by long cotton or linen kurtas, crop tops were all over and cool shades and patterns were all screaming summer.

Evenings were humid and hot, short summer dresses, sling bags and sparkly clutches set the scene.

I particularly had never worn crop tops and high waisted anything and always stayed away from these as i felt it didn’t quite fit my style and body shape and height.

But, seeing so many of them around i dared to embrace this trend and was pleasantly surprised by how much i actually liked it on me.

I better keep those abs flat! No one wants to wear a crop top and have all the love pouring out right?

For an evening of fun and fashion in Nairobi upon my return, i decided on a beautiful navy guipure lace high waisted suit.

Beautiful type of bobbin lace all around made this navy number even more special.

I kept it simple with minimal accessories, a silver clutch and blue black heels.

I definitely stepped out of my comfort zone with this one but i loved it!.

Here is the look, i hope you enjoy it.

Keep it fashionable, keep it stylish.

Love always x

Sparkle with a hint of Denim

DSC0257123

A Louboutin woman isn’t afraid to mix things up.

This is true in my case as i decided to stir it up with a white sparkly dress and my new pair of  So Kate.

She is a true beauty in dark denim and a patent white heel.

She stands perfectly at 120mm and her streamlined silhouette is no secret to Louboutins most notable designs.

This dark blue denim version has a cool contemporary look.

Worn best to elevate casual looks but I’m a risk taker so wore them this way.

Id also like to announce that we are very happy and excited as our fourth bundle of joy is on the way.

I am almost 20 weeks pregnant and so far have not broken into any maternity clothing.

Im definitely sporting a small bump now and will have to get those maternity jeans out as my waist slowly disappears 😉

I will be posting maternity and pregnancy fashion in the coming weeks, stay tuned.

Love

Sonal…x
