JERSEY DRESS x FAUX LEATHER PANTS x WEDGE SNEAKERS

Saturday, August 29, 2015

Hi Muffins?

As I type this post and look at these pics, I can't help but suddenly feel very disturbed by the fact that I had my palm over an ant path in the first pic. Why did it not concern me during the shoot?....that's my biggest wonder right now considering that am very scared of crawling animals or rather insects....it's not my greatest fear though.

To more serious matters now. One of the biggest fashion/style 'crimes' I can't seem to understand is wearing a below the knee skirt/dress over pants/leggings....whatever you want to call it. It's much worse when the pants happen to be extremely cropped and it completely doesn't make sense. Yes, I have seen this on the streets of Nairobi one too many times and as much as I try not feel about it, it always gets to me.

My point is, there are many ways to style your dress over pants in a fun way. It's not a crime to wear your dress / skirt over pants...we all have some of those days when we want to go an extra mile to keep our skin covered. Just make sure that you make a well coordinated outfit. 
You honestly don't want to look like you wore your spanx way below your dress hemline....a complete no,no. 

When I think of dress over pants, all my shift dresses suddenly become easy targets. For this look, I paired my one and only jersey dress with my faux leather pants and wedge sneakers. I had a sporty theme in mind....blame it on the jersey dress. I once wore it here back when Nokia Lumia was my designated camera....I see the growth and am grateful. 

This is a look I'd wear comfortably through the weekend, out with the girls, family or..... le bae (maybe loose the pants & change shoes for that)

Do enjoy this post muffins.


Seriously though, how cute and adorable are these wedge sneakers.....color mi world I say (my silly attempt on parrot language). They also happen to be very comfy....but then, aren't all wedges comfy?



Shee Art keeping me glam once again...there's never a dull moment with her jewelry.

That's it for today loves. I wish you a lovely weekend. 

Stay safe, be shamelessly stylish.

Kisses,

Linet.

  12. Wedges wedges... Love them to the moon and back! But for some reason this sporty wegde theme never suited me! I tried it a number of times but after I realized that they don't look good on me, I decided to accept that fact! But you dear rocked yours with so much confidence! I love how you always give us some fierce poses! I am taking notes hunny!
