I’m almost convinced that at one point this top belonged to a woman, maybe even a man, who had big dreams of ending up in Honolulu, Hawaii one day. Perhaps this woman/man even lived there at one point and enjoyed their fair share of sun, sand and those lei flower necklaces. I mean, have you seen the florals on this baby? 

I’m slightly obsessed with this shirt. Well, the truth is I’m obsessed with all things print at the moment but I specifically keep reaching out for this shirt. I got it a few weeks back and have probably worn it at least once every week! Once with shorts, then blue jeans and now these white jeans. I really wanted to bring out that electric blue by placing it with a brightly coloured bottom, then I added a different coloured clutch to jazz up the outfit. As I said in my previous post, these sunglasses haven’t left my face and quite frankly, they’re not about to. Prepare to be overwhelmed. 

Before I leave you, here’s a quote I came across that I thought perfectly captured what fashion means to me, at least in one regard:  “…there are no rules. It’s all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together.” Alexander McQueen.

Top – Gikomba; Jeans – soon to be available in my store!; Sunglasses c/o Cool Beans; Kitten Heels – Adams; Clutch – Kariokor Market;  Bracelets – Gifts; Earrings – Mother’s. 

Take care of yourself xx

      I guess it’s you and the 6 other people who pushed your comment up!
      Clearly I have been eating quite a bit more than usual. Or something like that ;)
      Thanks Nicole!

    Since this is my first time commenting, let me make the most of it :-) love the outfit, your blog etc. All I can do for now is just marvel and take some mental notes, since I’m expectant and my idea of fashionable items are something like pot bellied mens’ shirts, how sad :-( all in all your blog makes my days :-) whatever happens don’t let anyone or anything ever change the nice person that you are :-) I shall stop there for now….

    Looking pretty, the white jeans is quite something, i gotta get one! those prints on the man/woman shirt are bold n awesome too! :-)

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

      I’ve come to realise that white jeans almost automatically take you 5 points up on the sophisticated scale (whether or not you’re actually sophisticated). I think they’re definitely one of the pieces that should be in EVERY wardrobe!

  • sunny

    why are you so gorgeous ?? such a nice summery outfits, the white jeans gives it a clean refreshing look and lovely arm candy you have on there

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

      Why are you making a grown(ish) woman blush like a little girl?
      Thanks Sunny!

      sidenote: you know on the day I wore these jeans I almost tripped and fell flat on my face at Java. “clean” and “refreshing” would have been a thing of the past.

  • Merilyn Kawira

    You just did it with the quote there. Sharon, been reading your posts from the BAKE awards to this and don’t know what to comment coz the people have said everything. The personal connection you put there makes everybody feel like your sister/brother. You keep on being my inspiration.

      Thank you, thank you, thank you Merilyn!! What a kind thing to say!
      Love and love xx
