I have been so busy with school these past few days preparing for my CATs and Exams. Worst part actually is, the people whom I joined University with have already done their final exams and are graduating in a few months. These are the downsides of being a medical student with  5/6 year course. Probably by the time I graduate they will all be happily married with kids and BAELESS me will only have a degree and worried parents coz hey every parent wants to see their kids in a happily ever after union. Anyway before I  digress any further, let us delve into today’s post.

Remember when growing up and we saw our moms wearing these absolutely ridiculous-looking and ill-fitting jeans *at least that’s what we thought*, and we couldn’t fathom why anyone would wear such awful clothes? FYI: I assume I am talking to the 90’s kids, or those born before that. Apparently, mama really does know what’s best coz these vintage jeans are back with a bang! You ask how I know? Well; maybe coz I have 4 of them; or coz I ransacked my mom’s closet looking for one; or coz I still want more in different hues *Guilty hoarder*. And in the spirit of considering myself a fashion-forward lady, I think any/all of those points count. Haha.

Anyway,my friend Rshan and I decided to style these jeans. Rshan is a congolese fashion blogger based in Kenya. She runs the blog and her content ranges from DIYs and her awesome personal style. Just head over to her site to see what I am talking about. Each one of us did three different looks and somehow we ended up with almost similar concepts.


I will share the looks in three different posts to avoid creating a picture-heavy kind of post. For this first look, I wore my mommy jeans with a bustier top, a tribal print blouse and black rubber shoes. Rshan went for a sweater, black blazer, and these gorgeous black sandals, a kinda layered-look I would say.


Hope this series of posts will be helpful. Don’t forget to subscribe.

Have a lovely weekend
