#throwback | What I Wore Last Holiday Season

This festive season has really put me in a tough position because I am transitioning (my clothes size keeps changing) so I cannot plan out my outfits days or weeks in advance as I would like. This being the case, I thought it would be a good idea to get some inspiration from outfits I wore this time last year. Although I was expecting Elly then, I think if you take away the pregnancy you can still get good ideas on what to wear for various occasions this month.

Christmas Day

I am one of those people who goes with theme colours particularly on big occasions like Christmas. Last year, I chose green and white as my Christmas colours. I love this dress and unfortunately this is the only time it fit me (it's for sale in my shop). I paired it with a slim green belt, white peep -toe wedges, brass ring and sequin clutch. The grey coat acted as a coverup for the slightly chilly morning.



Family Get-Together

Sequins are my favourite trend, they have been for a while. And I DON'T believe you should restrict yourself to wearing them at night only. Sequins look just as good during the day as they do at night. I like a hint of them like on the top half of the bodice of this chiffon top. I had paired peach and white (another festive-themed colour) and broken up all the neutrals with purple and a hint of blue (notice my nail polish?).
This look is great for one of those days spent relaxing with family and friends when you only want to focus on comfort. Chiffon is great in the heat we are currently experiencing in Nairobi.


Concert and Lunch

If your family is anything like mine, you are probably assured of having at least one family function this time of year. I mean, calenders are more relaxed now so it's easier to get the whole family together. Maxi dresses are perfect for such occasions. Long enough not to antagonize anyone, comfortable and cool in the heat and they are a tried and tested stylish option for any fashionista. I like a statement-making maxi like this yellow one which I paired with a polka dot blouse as a coat. There are a million ways to style a maxi dress so don't feel like you need to get a new one every time. You could just restyle your old maxi dress in new, exciting ways.


Wedding

Yeah, my one and only saree features again. I think this saree makes an appearance every year around this time. And what better time to showcase your love (or maybe interest) in other cultures than at a wedding? I paired mine with my Indian chandelier earrings just to keep the outfit extra-themed. And since heels weren't my bestfriend when I was expecting, I opted for wedges.
