  • 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.

    It is not happy people who are thankful, but thankful people who are happy ~Unknown

    2016 is almost coming to a close and my question to you today is, "What are you thankful for?" Is it good health, life, friends, family, a job? Just spare a few minutes and come up with a gratitude list and you will be amazed at how God has really blessed you. Remember that blessings is not necessarily about that big job or house you have; the fact that you woke up in good health is also a blessing in itself. 

    All in all, I want to believe that you are well and the month of October has been kind to you. Today's post is all about palazzos..perfect outfit for the current Nairobi weather; loose fitting and very light. Paired mine with a vest and a sleeveless coat to spice up the look a bit. I do hope you enjoy the post.

    Have a lovely week and a blessed November.

    Blazer | Skirt | Top | Shoes

    I love that animal print outfits are not restrictive to any particular season. They can be worn anytime and with absolutely anything. In fact, they add glam to a rather plain outfit. Decided to pair my print top with a cape blazer from Rosegal. Honestly speaking, cape blazers are a bit too expensive here in Kenya and I just couldn't say no to this one from Rosegal. Check out their site to see what they have in store for you; very pocket-friendly prices and totally worth it.

    All in all, I hope your week has been good so far. Enjoy the rest of it.

    The past few weeks in Nairobi have been relatively hot but hey!Who am I to complain? Honestly speaking, I would rather deal with the heat as opposed to rain or cold. 

    Anyway, I hope the month of October has been kind to you so far. Today, I decided to do something different on the blog; I decided to create a 'summer outfit ideas' wishlist. I know we don't experience summer in Kenya but kinda feels like it. So here's a little outfit inspiration from SheIn.com.

    If you are an avid reader of my blog, I previously did a post here where I featured a midi body-con dress from them. Y'all should make sure to drop by their website; you will absolutely love what they have for you. 

    Stay fashionable

    “If you let go a little, you will have a little peace. If you let go a lot, you will have a lot of peace.” ~Ajahn Chah

    If there's one thing I've learned in the last few months, it's that some times you just have to let go and let God. It is unfortunate that quite a number of us carry so much within us. Be it frustration, anger, bitterness, resentment, anxiety, pain, loss; we always end up bottling far much than we can handle. What we don't realize is that all these use so much of our energy; energy that could have been devoted to positivity and productivity in our lives. Yes, it may be difficult to let go but once you have done that you will realize how peaceful your life will be. In fact, letting go opens up a whole world of new possibilities for you. Choose to peacefully let go whatever is stalling you; let it go and fully come to life.

    Have a blessed week.
