SAFARI CASUAL IN HARLEM
Happy July beautiful people.
The heat is on. Literally!
I have been watching documentaries on Africa, and the wild life and as you know it, I was there craving a Safari. Acacia trees, endless grasslands, blue skies. Sigh**
Then I recently saw a video of snow – pure, white, SNOW carpeting the roads in the highlands of my home country Kenya. Kenya!! It reminded me that Global warming is real! Scary indeed.
Safari's on my mind, the heat, I was thinking of a loose shift like dress. Can I get an Amen for shift dresses!!
I gravitate to any clothing nowadays that won't feel like second skin unless I am going out for a night out. During the day time, I want to be as airy as possible. The dress I am rocking is a cut when mumu meets shift dress then you reduce the hemline to thigh heights. I wanted it to feel like a puff pastry - light and airy. As fate would have it, I found the fabric gazing at me while trying to figure out what to make. The print was of course, all thing Safari, with little gold elephants, olive greens and dusty hues to make me a park warden - off duty! LOL. I could have worn flats but I love jazzing up my outfits now and then by throwing on some heels and my Adidas gym cap to hide the fact that my baldie hadn't seen the barber! Casual indeed.. :)
