Denim Shirt + African print skirt

African print comes full circle, there is definitely increased prominence of African print in mainstream fashion. I have always loved African fabric but with this new phenomenon, I have started incooperating African print pieces in my closet. What I particularly love about this trend is that African Fabric never really goes out of fashion, just like Denim and Khaki, its just a matter of updating designs with changing fashion trends. I love what I am wearing today; I paired an african print skirt with a denim shirt. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that denim and African print had been done and looked amazing. I also discovered an amazing Italian-Hatian designer called Stella Jean who designs amazing African print clothes and gives them a very modern twist. I have to confess that this is a look I really love and I will be doing more off in my wardrobe

The Khaki Bomber Jacket

When you live in a hot part of Kenya like I do, the rare day it decides to rain; lets just say big smiles. All the cute jackets and blazers that had been put away come out. I love that my work place does not have a strict dress code and since i travel to remote health facilities doing research I try to dress in clothes that are on trend but are culturally appropriate for the rural folk that I have to meet. I have had this Khaki Bomber Jacket for about four months now, but I have never had an opportunity to wear it until now. The stripped T-shirt is from New Look and the jeggings are thrifted and flat pointed shoes I got on a trip to China. Just noticed my dreads are sticking out :-)))
