  • 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.

    When life gives you curves, flaunt them ~ Unknown

    Am sure most of you had no idea that bodycon is actually short for body-conscious. Y'all should thank me for teaching you something new today :-) Ladies, bodycons are just perfect if you want to flaunt those God-given curves. I especially love the way bodycons create a semblance of an hourglass shape and at the same time elongates one's body making you look slimmer and taller. So ladies, there is absolutely no reason why you shouldn't own this wardrobe essential.  

    Today am rocking a green bodycon midi dress from SheIn that I absolutely fell in love with at first sight. I mean, who wouldn't give in to such awesomeness; the color, the length, the fit..everything about this particular bodycon dress is perfect! Make sure to drop by the She In website (www.shein.com); they have amazing stuff at very affordable prices. You will thank me later.

    Enjoy today's post and have a lovely day.

    Who else is loving the current Nairobi weather? I just love the fact that I don't have to worry about layering or having to put on heavy clothing especially after dealing with a flu for almost a month. 

    Jumpsuits are therefore perfect during the hot season; very light, comfy and super stylish and in fact they are always my preference when it comes to comfort. Jumpsuits are no doubt an effortless route to chic. 

    Enjoy today's post and do have a lovely weekend ahead.

    Be fearless, be brave, be bold, love yourself.


    Hoping that the month of September has been kind to you so far except for the very cold Nairobi weather. Damn!Sometimes it feels like its winter over here; not that I've experienced winter before and I wouldn't even wish to. 

    Never tied a turban before so I decided to give it a try and I loved the outcome. Am however still in the process of perfectioning the art of tying it though. Here's a little outfit inspiration for the cold weather. I do hope you enjoy.

    Ladies, do you ever find yourself in a situation whereby you have so many outfits in your wardrobe but there is this particular pair of blue jeans or black heels that you just love to wear? I am most definitely a victim and I do think that it is ok to obsess over something new and wear it more than once. After all, its yours, you own it and its a free world. 

    However ladies, if you don't want to be noticed as a repeat offender, the trick here is to switch it up. If its that pair of blue jeans that you love, you can add a blazer or a fancy top that will draw the attention from the jeans to the top. If it's a dress, accessorize it differently and no one will hardly notice. If it's a crop top like what I have on the blog today, if you previously wore it with a pair of pants, next time switch up the pants for a skirt. Ladies, all you need to do is just play around with what you have. In fact, fashion blogging has really opened my eyes to the fact that you don't need to own so many clothes to look good, you can own just a few pieces but the way you style them is what matters. 


    I got this particular skirt from ROMWE fashions and I absolutely fell in love with it at first sight. The fabric is heavy and I love how it automatically brings out that slight puff. You should most definitely drop by their website and check out the amazing stuff they have in store for you. This outfit could work best for a wedding if you ask me. So any of you attending a wedding tomorrow, a perfect outfit inspiration for you right here..
