This is me

People who really know me, know that I am jean and tee kind of girl. The tees and jeans sizes may have shrunk or ballooned during the years but I remain true to myself. There is nothing easier to wear or style than jeans and tees. I may have grown tired of my jeans and switched to dresses and skirts (particularly under this heat) but for some reason I always go back to them. They are my security blanket, my go to style when I cannot think of nothing else to wear in the morning.
Today was a jean and tee kind of day even if I added this dress as a tunic.
Here is what I wore:

 
Scarf - Walmart
Tee - Homes
Dress - Thrifted
Pants - H&M
Shoes - Forever 21
Accessories - H&M, thrifted and gifted



This dress was a great find at one of my fave place to shop in Yokohama, 390 Mart. I talked about this place so many times in this blog but it is really the place to go. For 409 Yen (less than $6) you get so many great finds like this Old Navy printed dress (or a Catherine Malandrino dress that was a size too small but that I gave to my sister in law). I loved the print right when I saw it on the racks but I was not sure when I tried the dress on. It was a bit tight on the girls. But I debated with myself and decided to bring it home. Besides the material is so soft and light, it is perfect for hot Summer days.




The shoes are new. I really like them as they are in a color I really do not have in my collection of shoes. But I am mad at the fact that they have two straps instead of one. It takes all the ease out of wearing sandals as I have to struggle to put them on and struggle to take them off. But apart from that they are easy to wear and beautiful on the eyes. So they are a keeper for now. 






This is me: white tee, tunic dress, jeans and sandals. There is nothing that represents me better....except maybe maxi dresses but that it another story....

A la Camerounaise

Remember when I said that I was never going to change my style, because I like what I like (which is to be comfortable)?

Well I lied! My style is slowly changing. As my love life is in shambles at the moment ( I will get to that in a future post, I promise), I feel the need to go for a drastic change. I have contemplated the idea of cutting my hair (been there, done that!), dying it blond/ red or just forget this Hijabi thing all together. But as always, it is in the clothing department that I get to transform myself.

Truth be told, I am sure that even when things were perfectly normal at home, I would still go with a style change. The reason being that I am influenced at work. Women at my job are very simple and casual but they can turn the heat up from time to time. My favorite day is Friday when almost every one get to dress up in Traditional Attire. As someone who does not have many traditional attires, I am amazed at all the designs and styles out there. My eyes are feasting and …

When after work turns into a Fashion shoot

I went to my first "After work" the other day. For those who do not know what that is, "After work" is when colleagues get together for drinks or diner after work. Oups! I forgot to tell you! I started working for an international aid agency recently. I finally found myself a job that I also happen to like. Praise the Lord! I have been working for the last few months. It is challenging but I get to learn so many new things. And the best part are the people I get to work with particulalry the ladies. I enjoy them, every single one of them for they all have interesting personalities. They are also hilarious. I spend my days laughing. And I could not be more grateful to God for that!
Since two of my co workers were leaving (sad part of my job: people do not tend to work there for a long time), we decided to surprise them with an "After work"/ farewell party. We went to Marina Bay, which is a seaside hotel with a fabulous pool located in a hip area called …

Ramadan Lethargy

Hello dears.

How are you?

And for those fasting, how is your Ramadan so far?

We are in the last week of Ramadan and I am feeling great. I cannot complain.
However I could not help but notice a certain lethargy that has engulfed the town and the people living in it. since the beginning of Ramadan. For starters people go to work later than usual because they are still trying to catch some sleep between the time they eat and pray in the morning and the time they go to work. It is harder particularly for women who wake up early to cook something for their families. Even when you get organized and cook something the night before going to bed, you still have to get up earlier to heat it up. And most women I know are not content on cooking something simple, like ordinary breakfast. They want to make elaborate meals that would please their families. They feel the pressure more than anybody else, and they sleep also less.
This lack of sleep can have some serious consequences on the body and the m…
