For accessories, I opted for gold loop earrings, a gold ring, a black beaded necklace and tan Mary-Janes.
Outfit Details: Top: Thrifted (Gikomba Market); Skirt: Botique i2s; Shoes: Bus Station, Nairobi; Earrings: Dubois Street, Nairobi; Necklace and Ring: gift
This outfit truly embodies my resolution to put more effort into my dressing. My go-to outfits always involve denim and a t-shirt but there are times that call for something a bit more dressy.
