BLACK ON BLACK 3 WAYS : OFFICE TO EVENING

 How are you all?

The apologies are getting old but I promise to up my game on posting more frequently. I.e. when Kenya power stops the frequent electricity cut-offs in Machakos town.

I bet your weekend was a fun one. I very much hope so. Mine was a little hectic but all turned out well. I had my first ever Mani-pedi (don't judge, am a DIY girl) done courtesy of The Reel Rhee and Stiv Make up.

I went on to do my hair. Got some Faux Locs done by my fellow blogger Bella from Bella The Coffeeberry. Its been a great pleasure meeting new friends online. 
Am hoping to get better pictures for you soon, in the mean time follow my escapades on Instagram @linetnkirote

The Icing on the cake came when Bae surprised me with my new phone. I've been using a very old (maybe not so old) analog phone which has been hurting my Social media growth. However, thanks to Bae I've upgraded from an LG C110 to a LG G3. I can now post on the blog while on the go....Yaaaaaaaay!

Enough with all the ranting.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Today's post is the first in a series of three. How to style the same black items for different occasions and environments. 

The first look includes a simple black long sleeved blouse/top paired with a black pencil skirt. The combo almost looks like an LBD. You can belt it or not to cinge your waist and add some color. It can be worn to the office during the day and still switch to an informal evening occasion......simple and neat.

You can decide to do it different (shoes & accessories) to suit your taste.

Do enjoy the post loves.

Kisses.

Thats all for today muffins. Hope you had a good read.

Thank you all for stopping by.

Much Love,

Linet

XOXO.

    In case you did not notice, and that the arrows do not fly fast. 350fps 900fps shooting a bow gun too fast, too slow, slower than the shooting is at a distance of about a mile. So, quarry before you ask them to shoot the arrow has a good chance.

  8. http://spiderprofitreview.tumblr.com/ Today there are so many choices one can make when it come to trading. So how do you decide which is the best? This is not a question that can be taken lightly. Making such a choice requires a lot of thought and consideration.
