Hello lovelies!

I’m clearly trying to make up for my absence! thought i’d make today a double post seeing as both revolve around my love for African anything.

I got this 2 piece Ghanaian fabric outfit made for me by a lovely lady that has a shop in Green market square where I used to live. the top is actually a crop top if worn with something with a lower waist line, but paired together it looks like a dress which i think is a bit more appropriate for Nairobi. The skirt is a bit short but its so free and wide..totes adorable!

hi lovelies!

Apologies i know its been about two weeks since my last post..need to work on consistency.

Hope you guys are great however!

Now, if you know me you know that I’m obsessed with anything African. I got this beaded neck/ shoulder piece on the streets of cape town and I’m just in love! It feels like I have a shawl on my shoulders. Definitely a conversational piece.

Paired it with this all black jumpsuit that I wish I’d got in another colour. I think I wear too much black and I’m trying to veer away from it a little bit.

Hi!

So far the response to my new blog has been amazing! hope I don’t disappoint y’all!

In this post I wore the same shirt but with a pencil skirt from stylesketches, which is run by my twin. I loved it so much when I saw her in it I had her send two to cape town for me! Admittedly this shirt is a little bit risque’ and I wouldn’t advise anyone to wear this on the streets…seeing as in this is Kenya. You can tone it down however and wrap it up a little bit higher if you’re the conservative type.

now that i’m back home i figure there’s no better time to resume blogging. some of you may remember my first blog(gag) and i have to say i quite enjoyed myself during that time. I’ve grown and changed quite a lot since then i hope you enjoy this growth journey with me. this is basically my style diary and my opinions on certain matters that interest me at any particular time. expect lots of style, natural hair, fitness and healthy eating!

Keeping it really simple for my first post just because I’m still a little bit rusty and my computer is the devil!

I hope y’all welcome me into your cyber world! looking forward to your feedback!

love and happiness,

LISATHEBANTU.
