  • 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.

    The thing about A-line skirts is that they are timeless; they never go out of season. A-line skirts are a key wardrobe staple because you can wear them for any occasion; wedding, church, night out, to the office or even as a casual wear.

    Got this particular A-line skirt am wearing on the blog today from ROMWE Fashion, an online clothing shopping site that caters for ladies clothing. I especially love the length and the floral details on this particular one. Make sure to drop by their site and see what they have in store for you. 

    Enjoy today's post and have a lovely day.
    ❤❤❤

    I know am a bit late with the sneaker-dress trend but hey!Better late than never. This is one trend you will be spotting me in a couple of times this year. Am all about comfort this year..No doubt about that!

    Got this grey bodycon dress am wearing on the blog today for just 300 Kshs (3 dollars). How awesome is that though? This look was inspired by Janet Mbugua. Last month she had a 'Sneaker Mum' series on her blog officialjanetmbugua.com and I absolutely loved how she put together all the looks. So I decided to give it a try and here's how it turned out.

    Enjoy and have a lovely week ahead.

    Happy New Year fam.. 

    Super elated to be back after a much needed break. Hoping you enjoyed your holidays and are ready for whatever 2017 has in store for you.

    To start us off this year are a few wardrobe resolutions that could do you some good as you begin the year and help you save on a few coins. 

    1. Plan your purchases
    Personally am a victim of not planning my purchases. Am that person who is always shopping on impulse with the excuse that if I don't buy it then I will not find it when I need it which is quite true. But I think its time I stopped shopping on impulse. Sometimes it gets to a point where you have absolutely no cash and in fact you end up not putting on the clothes you bought on impulse because you just have too much. Buy because you need it..!

    2. Shop smart
    Yes and Yes. This should have been my first point. Shop smart by investing in staples and versatile pieces. Staples are key because once you have staples, styling becomes very easy and in fact you can now build your wardrobe out of the staples. So invest in staples (this could be a black blazer, fitting blue/black pants, a pencil skirt or a white classic shirt). Versatile pieces in turn cut down the urge to want to purchase more. 

    3. Forget about quantity
    Sometimes its not always about having so many clothes. What I've come to realize over time is that having too many clothes is just but a headache. Reason being, when you have so many you spend more time looking for an outfit to wear. And in fact, some mornings you feel like you have nothing to wear and end up buying more. So just have basics and build your wardrobe out of basics. 

    4. Do a closet clearance once in a while
    Am sure we all have those clothes that are always squeezed in the utmost corner of our closets. Clothes we always say we will wear but months down the line are just full of dust. I think its time you either did a clearance sale and got new ones or donated to those who don't have or at least those who always eye your outfits. Just don't keep clothes for almost a year or two saying you will one day put them on. It never works.

    5. Dress for yourself
    Finally, always exude confidence in whatever you wear. Nothing makes a woman more beautiful and sexier than the belief that she is beautiful. So have confidence in yourself and feel good in whatever you wear and add a smile to it! 

    Hope you enjoyed today's post.

    Linda's World of Style wishes you a blessed 2017 full of God's favor, good health and success in all your endeavors. Remember life is too short so make the most of this year, do not waste any opportunity that comes your way and always remember to put God first in everything you do. Pray, pray and don't stop praying.

    Otherwise, here's to more slayage this year

    Love you fam
    ❤❤❤
    xoxo
