The weather in Mombasa can be unpredictable sometimes especially during rainy season that is between March to around mid-May because it usually is rainy season during that time but some days it just won’t pour. You leave the house heavily dressed for the weather, the clouds telling you it’ll pour, only for it to change it’s mind and send the sun! Lol. That’s when you pull this transitional look sense of style and rock your day because the weather has got nothing on you!!

When it comes to dressing up, the pet peeve of most girls and women around the world is that they do not have the perfect body to wear everything. One of the most important quests that we women and girls  have going, is finding fashion exceptions and adjustments that makes sure that the flaws in their figures are not seen. A lot of effort, time and money is spent on finding the right way to make those outfit ideas come alive on your body without any loss of confidence. One such fashion secret that can come in handy is the judicious use of peplum.

Peplum  can be a boon for making the body look curvy at the midriff, which is one of the problem areas that women are always cribbing about.

A peplum top is so fun for sunny season, an easy statement piece that you can pair with basics from black pants to distressed jeans and nice statement accessory pieces, then you flaunt what your mama gave you, lol!

 

I’ve got the perfect black jeans outfit to transition me from sunny to cold season! I’m not sure if you’d consider your black jeans to be part of your go-to stack of wardrobe staples, but they most certainly should be! They’re such a great alternative when I feel like I’ve been wearing my normal blue jeans WAY too often! Plus, I love figuring out new and different ways to put outfits together with them.

I used to think I had to wear them when I was going for something more edgy or only with dark items, but I’ve loved playing around with adding femininity to them.

In today’s outfit, I balanced the tighter, dark look on bottom with a soft, flowy peplum top. This can be a transitional look from sunny to cold season and vice versa. During cold season, you simply throw on a trench/cape coat and substitute the heels with some boots and you would have conquered the weather!! *wink wink*

This peplum top is beautiful and quite unique though my photographer did not do justice to this look’s photos but I had to work with what I have. Enjoy!

Top: Thrift

Black jeans: Thrift.

Heels: Thrift.

    Love the look but better still a photo with the transition would have done the page justice. A picture of you in boots and the trench coat… ? For some of us seeing is believing.

        More ice? More snow? More winter fun? Come visit me in Jaanruy. I'll even be more than happy to let your children shovel a foot or more of snow in front of my house. And if they are very good, they can shovel my cars out. 🙂

        King, the Ed leader for the state of NY, do1e&n#82s7;t even send his kids to public schools. Find out if the Montessori school his kids attend are subject to this nonsense. No way! If he is not subjecting his children, then all children in NY should have the same option. Ask him publicly why his children are not in a NY public school. Sorry for typos no power iPhone.

      before, its adult sci-fi, its not Doctor Who…it was never meant to be Doctor Who and so you cant describe both shows using the same vocab bank.Be a bit more opem minded and co8&;mporyt#n230ebecause its very disheartenting to a show i think can stand well on its own without the Doctor Who prop. Its the way forward with British Sci-fi, get over it.

      With so many heartbreaks it is really hard to get behind James Jones, and he is already 28 years old.With that said…I am making a playoff push and am in need of a WR. I was offered Jones for my 1st round pick which through trades would be a mid round pick in an extremely deep league. Would you put that kind of value on Jones?VN:F [161929_11..](from 1 vote)

      POSTED October 31, 2005 at 6:38 amYes and no.  If you have a DVR, then yes, otherwise it’s not that grste.&nbap; It’s like math geek CSI, and whenever I watch those shows I get 1. irritated that the show is talking down to me and 2. irritated that half of it is a big load of crap.  But sometimes it’s kind of cool also.  My favorite show at the moment is Prisonbreak, if you’re not watching that you should check it out.  I actually watch it in real time with *gasp* commercials so I don’t have to wait.

        I really want this phone but I hate the small internal stagcre/laok of SD slot. For my immediate needs 9-10 gigs might be enough for my usage but I worry a lot about the long term. A couple of games with good graphics and its done. I have a Transformer prime so it might stand in as the more likely gaming usage on something like a plane flight but I hate to support these sorts of terrible short sighted decisions.
