Hi Y'all.

How's your week coming along so far?
 Mine began on a busy note, after I complained of too much laziness last week. 

After several months of wishing for ankle straps at an affordable price, my friend Liz of Lizzies Boutique Fashions finally brought me a pair at Kshs 2900. I've had the shoes since March but never wore them till some-time last month....and boy oh boy, don't I just love them.

Ladies, if you don't already have a pair of single sole ankle strapped heels you better get yourself one. These shoes are so elegant, classy and they go well with everything. Honestly, they do nothing but elevate each outfit.

I am a huge fan of accessories but I rarely buy them cause am only attracted to unique pieces...call them statement pieces. I bought this Tribal Maasai Neck piece on the trip to Maasai Mara. It's  a little different from the ones am used to but you can get a similar one at Maasai Market.

Monochrome is a classic but it's always good to be creative with your outfits. So pick your go to stunning shoes, a statement accessory or bag and you are good to go. Alternatively, you can lose the neck-piece and use a more subtle one, throw on your favorite blazer, trench coat or sweater and you are office ready. 

What are your thoughts on this outfit loves? 
What's on your wishlist? Leave me a comment down below!

That's it for today muffins, do enjoy and remember to share and tell a friend.

Linet.
