  • 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.

    2019 is about 13 days away and this time round my new year resolutions will include style resolutions. Actually, for the past few weeks I have been letting go of clothes I haven't worn for the past 6 months because I recently discovered outfits that have been in my closet for quite a while now, like the blazer on this post which I'm still attached to. So come 2019, I want to invest in a minimalistic wardrobe; simply just streamlining my closet in such a manner that I have JUST what I need. Ultimately just invest in minimal pieces that can be styled differently.

    I actually realized that the fewer the clothes you have, the easier it is to style them differently and the easier it actually is to find something to wear. And in fact, the easier it is to shop because you easily identify what you need. And you spend less. So this is actually a perfect resolution, ladies, for 2019.

    This green blazer, however, found its way to my heart again and I'll be wearing it quite often in the coming weeks seeing that you can never go wrong with a pop of plain color especially when paired with prints.

    Enjoy today's post and have a lovely week ahead.

    Happy hump day 😃

    I'm experiencing writer's block today so I won't be saying much except for the fact that I discovered that a kiondo works better than a tote bag and you know what? It's even more stylish and versatile. So if you happen to see me carrying this particular kiondo everyday, just know that I'm not about to stop anytime soon. And yes, ladies, if you do not own one you better visit Kariokor market soon enough because this wardrobe piece is totally worth it! And before I forget, I got this stylish bell-sleeved top for just 200Kshs (2 dollars) from an Instagram thrift store, imagine?! So do you agree with me that there's absolutely no better way to casually make a statement than in a bell-sleeved top and a kiondo, right?! 

    Have a lovely rest of the day and week. 








    This look can be paired with heels as well if you wish to spice up your look.
