V-DAY COUNTDOWN: MY SWEET VALENTINE

You can chalk it up to another holiday created by Hallmark as a way for them to squeeze out more money from us but you can’t deny that Valentines Day is the perfect holiday to put on that little red dress and hit the town. Now, I’m not going to lie to you, I am not the biggest fan of Valentines Day, but a big part of my 2016 New Years resolution is to do things that make me uncomfortable. So this year, I am going ham with Valentines Day celebrations. So lets start the count down with a Valentines day outfit post. For this look I give you…MY SWEET VALENTINE.

TRENCH LOVE

When the sun finally sets the coats come out to play.
I’ve been in Kenya for almost 7 years now. And I love everything about it. I love the city, the culture, the food and most importantly I love being as close as possible to my family. Now, when I tell people that I grew up in the U.S the most asked question I get is “WHY WOULD I MOVE BACK?”.. The answer is quiet simple.. Why not? Kenya is amazing.
But with all the love I have for Kenya, there is one thing I miss most about living in the U.S, specifically Michigan… the winter. Oh my gosh I miss winter. And it’s not necessarily the freezing cold blizzards, it’s the change in seasons that I miss. I miss having 4 different seasons, forcing me to change up your style and look. I miss having an icy December, a chilly February, a warm-ish March and a hot as all hell July. I miss being able to have 4 style versions of myself.
So every time I feel a slight chill coming through, I make it a point to break out my trench coats and rock them like at any moment we may finally get a blizzard. #fingerscrossed
