I've been reading your comments from the giveaway post and noticed that quite a few of you are interested in seeing Wambui Mukenyi use different fabrics in her upcoming collection. When I was choosing what to pair this skirt with, my first inclination was to go for something cotton (possibly in a dark green) but the more I looked at the print, the more I wanted to create contrast by using a different fabric in a totally different colour. I tried on several tops but it was only when I wore my chambray shirt that I felt I'd achieved this perfect contrast. I have to say, there's something slightly rebellious yet fun about pairing two pieces/fabrics that don't usually go together! Love it.  

In other slightly less fashion related news, I can't believe it's Thursday already. I feel like this week just flew by and I've barely had time to sit down. Before I leave you, I just wanted to say thank you to those who take the time to leave their thoughts on a blog post. I try to respond to most of them but sometimes I can't do so immediately. Whether you're sharing your ideas or appreciating mine, I really don't take it for granted so a big thank you to you for leaving your thoughts on here! 

Don't forget to enter the giveaway if you haven't already! The winner will be picked at random and will be announced on the blog tomorrow morning where I'll be sharing my last look featuring a stunning Wambui Mukenyi gown. Feel free to share the giveaway deets with your friends too!

Stay cool!

    I’m the first to comment :D *woop woop*
    Love the outfit, there is actually something about mixing prints that don’t usually go together, and actually rocking the outfit. Definitely borrowing this one.
    Happy Thursday :)

  • Kate

    Love the prints and colours but I feel like there should be a belt somewhere? Because of the loops on the skirt?

    • http://twitter.com/ThisisEss Miss Sharon

      My bro said the exact same thing.
      I should definitely listen to him more often:)

      Hey Kate, my silly brother replied to the comment below..

      The skirt could be worn with a belt but I didn’t want to break the look in this case mostly because there was already such contrast between the top and bottom that I didn’t think it needed it!

      What makes this look especially good is the fact that my awesome brother took these photographs!
