MOMMY JEANS LOOKBOOK- 1
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 www.rshanphonsi.com 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.

Have a lovely weekend
