What I Wore: Orange Linen for Winter
The weather in Nairobi has been mostly cold and I’ve been struggling with getting creative with my outfits. I was looking through my closet, trying to put outfits together and all I could see was the gaps I had. There are some chunky boots that I know would help elevate many of my outfits. But I’m yet to buy them (they’re not in the budget right now, haha!). So for now I’m trying to make things work.

Since linen is a summer fabric, it’s light and breezy perfect for the heat, I had to add layers to make it cold weather-appropriate so I wore a pair of stockings underneath. I added this simple black sweater with the embroidered flowers which I felt added a bit more detail to the outfit.
My black sneakers and knitted scarf completed my outfit.
