  • Hi.. I'm Linda Otiende; a Personal Style Blogger. I think fashion and style is all about creativity; playing around with what you have to create something unique and stylish out of it. Blogging about my personal style is an interest I developed about three years ago when I discovered that as ladies, we really go to certain extremes to look good. Yes, we gotta look good but at the end of the day that does not mean that we have to wear the most expensive clothes or shoes to be stylish. You can actually work it out in the cheapest of them yet still ooze class! So welcome to my blog where I will get to show you my personal style and how I manage to look good on a budget. I do hope you enjoy.

    I must admit that blogging isn't quite the easy task as I had imagined it to be especially when it comes to writing interesting posts that will actually make a reader look forward to more. There is always that tendency of giving up once you've started thinking that guys probably won't like it or the thought that there are other bloggers doing better than you are but at the end of the day I have realized that you have to take that step of faith and believe in yourself. There may be something unique about your blog that another doesn't have and for sure that is what has motivated me. All the same I believe you are all keeping up well. So today was that denim kinda day and I decided to rock denim on denim..

    Guys you have to pardon me coz of my usual boring background in which I take my pics. Am sure most of you now know every corner of our compound but I promise you the best is yet to come and for sure more professional photos are coming your way. 

    All the same I want to believe that you are ok and are enjoying the hot Nairobi weather as I am. So today's post is inspired by the trending tulle skirt. I came across this dress while I was taking my friend shopping and it caught my eyes coz of the soft tulle material the lower part was made of. However, it looks like chiffon from a far but once you feel it it has that 'Tulleness' (ok I don't know if such a word exists but who cares anyway?!) and I ended up buying it thanks to my convincing friend. Talk of impulse shopping ladies! 

    Anyway I decided to give the dress two looks and here are the outfit details..











    For the second look I threw in a black sleeveless crop top and added a belt and accessorized the look with a pearl necklace.

    Hey lovely reader? So from my previous blog post you must have noticed the excitement I had with the hot weather having come back. To my surprise, today I woke up and the clear sky was no more..just grey clouds. Talk of disappointments. Just when I thought the cold weather was no more it suddenly comes back from nowhere. 

    Anyway I think I have complained enough and I just have to deal with it and be ready for anything though I must confess that it completely disorganizes me. I especially pity those ladies who prepare for the following day the night before and because you know it has been hot then you put aside light clothes and when you wake up it suddenly is cold! My mum is a victim! However for her whether its cold or not she will just put on what she had in mind for the day.

    And the hot weather is finally here I hope to stay. I am so excited because that means its time to ditch the heavy sweaters,scarfs and jeans. God knows how much of a burden it is to put on so many layers of clothes.! 

    Today's post title was inspired by Lana Del Rey's song, 'Summertime Sadness' but am not sad.:-) I was actually listening to it as I was writing this post and I thought to myself since my outfits are summer-inspired why not just call it 'Summer Time Sadness'. So today I opted to step out in a maxi skirt and a vest and embrace the hot weather as it is.
