These pants!!!

I went crazy a few weeks back and got myself some Irish green leggings type pants. At the store, they seem toned down enough hidden in a myriad of other colorful items. However once I got them home, I became worried. How can I wear Irish green pants? How will I style them?
I do not own anything Irish green. I like my greens to be olive and a little bit khaki, in other words I like my green subtle. So why on earth I went and got Irish green pants? Maybe because I wanted a change? Maybe because I was influenced? Whatever the reason, there I was stuck with green pants I had no idea how to wear.
I decided to google the pants to have an idea of how other people were wearing them. Soon enough I found two pictures of bloggers who rocked the pants with trench coats. They look good but I wanted more. I wrote a fave blogger who loves green about how to style the pants and she said that she was going to get back to me soon.
Anyway, I did not want to wait any longer because those pants are thick, hence suitable for colder weathers. And Spring is already here. So I went and wore the pants with a long shirt, trench coat and my military boots.

Knit hat - H&M
Scarf - gift from Mother in law
Shirt - Thrifted
Trench coat - Thrifted
Bag - Walmart
Pants - H&M
Boots - Shimamura

The pants were perfect for they were as comfy as sweat pants. I could move in them but I was still bothered by the brightness of the color. Maybe the beige green combo was not working as well as I thought it would.
Never wanting to give up, I wore the pants again to run some errands like this:

Blue scarf with beadings - gift from Mother in law
Grey cardigan - Ross
White tee - Walmart
Denim Jumper - Thrifted Don Don Down
Green pants - H&M
Shoes - Random shoe store in Ishikawacho

I loved how I styled these pants here. My jumper dress is so great even if it makes me look pregnant. Actually I am sure it is a maternity dress but I do not care. I think I maybe the only person on earth who purchases maternity dresses only when she is not pregnant. Anyway I felt good in this outfit; the dark blue of the denim dress toned down the green of the pants. They were barely noticeable I think. As I was going to drop my kid off at school, his teacher asked me if I had my colors done for I always know what colors suit me. I was flattered but had to answer no for I have not done it yet. Another mom at the school is doing everyone colors and I have to say that all the ladies who did it look better. Maybe I should jut forget my inhibitions and get styled. Why do I have to loose? At best, I will learn to stay away from pastels and use bright colors and at worst, she will just confirmed the colors I already favor.
Anyway, I am happy with my styling. I just wish I could find something other than my denim dress to match the pants....

DIY/ DIM Laced up Ballet flats

Hello readers!

How are you?

Today I am bringing you yet another super easy Diy. It is not about clothes since I have been lazy to make something from scratch lately. Today is about the laced up flats that have been popping everywhere recently. I have been lusting over them for a while but I could not find them anywhere in Pune. I was about to give up when I saw some bloggers "diying" the shoes. It looked so easy that I decided to make them as well. For a while, I put my Diy on hold because I wanted pointed toe flats that I did not have in my closet. Or so I thought!

While going through my shoes the other day I found this pair of Trf Zara striped flats that I had for ages but barely wear. I decided that I would use these shoes.

If you also want to Diy the shoes, here is what to do:

1. You will need :
- a pair of flats, round toe or pointed toe would be fine ( but pointed look a tad more elegant I think)
- 2 to 3 yards of cord
- A heavy duty punch hole  ( mine was a normal one…

Blanche Neige (Snow White)

Growing up, I used to watch Disney Princess Movies. I also used to believe that someday my Prince Charming would come. Now, it is safe to say that after a failed relationship, I no longer believe in fairy tales. I no longer believe in love. I have love for people around me: my family, my friends Yet I have given up on Romantic Love. I know it exists but I am not sure it is for me. 
Now I hate fairy tales because they depict men as being charming, loving, caring, always there to save the day. Well, in real life most men are not. And I am not really blaming them because after all they are only human. I am not like Snow White or Aurora either. I am not beautiful, at least not the standard, I am not soft I do not speak in a lady like voice. I do not sing to or with animals, and I do not sacrifice myself to save who I love or take abuse with a smile. Well I used to. But not anymore.
I have locked my heart and threw away the key in the sea. Because I do not want to fall for someone again a…

A visit to the Musee des Civilisations Noires

Hello! Hello!

Happy New Year 2019! I hope you had a wonderful time with your family and your friends during the last days of 2018. I had a wonderful time with my entire family, but also attending weddings and parties with my colleagues and other friends.

But today, I will tell you all about the best day I had in 2019 so far. During the Winter break, I had decided to take my boys to  the new Museum that opened in December. It is called Museum of Black Civilizations. And I was very eager to check it out. I had called in advance to check the dates and the entrance fees. Turns out, the entrance is free all the month of January.

On January 3rd, I dragged the kids along. The Museum is located in downtown Dakar. It is right opposite the "Grand Théatre", near the soon to be open TER train final stop. We arrived there just before midday. The museum is big, and round in shape. It is very spacious inside, with big columns and high ceilings. The main colors are beige and brown. The exh…
