In Her Closet: Solange Knowles

I have had the biggest style crush on Solange Knowles for the longest time. I love BeyoncĂ©  and it can’t be denied that she is pretty stylish too but while everybody had their eyes on BeyoncĂ©, I always had a thing for Solange.

For me it’s about how individual her style is, she puts the craziest prints, colours and designs together and they just seem to magically work. Everybody claims to have their own style but sometimes we all dress so alike that it gets hard to distinguish our individualism from the next person but when it comes to Solange, it’s all hers. She owns it.

Decided to try out this bright coloured outfit Solange rocked a while back in NYC. I had an orange blazer (I have a thing for orange blazers) and a yellow dress so it wasn’t exactly rocket science. I didn’t wanna go all the way and wear my yellow heels as I was going to work and didn’t want to show up looking like a box of sunshine so I toned it down with some nude and leopard print heels I got this month from Fashion Express (they have great shoes!)

Never Too Old For A New Dream

Last month was my birthday and for once I felt super old. I mean I still feel the same but just hearing my age made me cringe. (No, I'm not telling!lol)

I guess what's really bothering me is that I always thought that at this age I would have it all figured out but I don't. I really thought that after university, I would get a super good paying job (probably be famous, I'd be ready to settle down and life would basically be sorted out. But none of that seems to even be peeking on the horizon. Instead, life has thrown me curveballs and i feel stuck and not moving forward. I actually feel like I'm moving backwards.

Today I came across this quote that just gave me life! "You're never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream." This is so true! I'm not done dreaming yet, I don't care if I don't even achieve all the things I set for myself, just having a dream to work towards gives me hope. I will dream even the impossible! I will dream until they carry me out in a box!

Hope you like my denim on denim look which I tried a week ago. I love the denim shirt and I'm sure I've worn it a dozen times since I got it. The print just makes it stand out. You can get it from Jet, it's in the guys section but hey, who cares?

Citi Bank Zambia's Glitzy Opening

  Last week I attended the official opening of the Citi Bank Zambia offices at the Elunda round-about in Lusaka. One of our clients, a decor company called Glitter & Sparkle set up the decor for the cocktail and I went through to get some pictures. It was a lovely event with free food, drinks and new friends. This is the part of my job I love! Hope you like the pictures; I think I’m getting better with my photography which is great as I want to incorporate it as part of my professional skills in future!

This post is really because the lovely Tsepo (who I featured in a blog here) said she was looking forward to an update. It warms my heart to know   people look forward to seeing something new on the blog.

I have a battle of deciding how much of my personal life to share on here so I keep it breezy so to say, but the truth is I am a real person and life is not always a bunch of roses. I am going through such a big change in my life at the moment and to be honest it is so hard not to be able to open up about it but I’ve come to learn sometimes it’s better to first work it out with God and yourself and only talk about it when you are in a better frame of mind.
