A Lifestyle Blog With An African Twist

One Sleeve Kaftan Top

"Gud padi betteh paas far way fambul" This is a Sierra Leonean proverb which means a good friend who lives nearby is better than a relative who lives far away because if there is an emergency, that friend will be the first person to be of assistance. In Australia, I have met and made a lot of friends and they all mean a lot to me. Some friends come into your life and they make the world a better place for you, without even saying a word, you know you can count on them at anytime and they know the same applies with you too.  

This weekend we caught up with a few of such friends and the company was great. This outfit is what I wore to the "catch up".  All old items that have been in my wardrobe for more than five years.

Thank you for taking the time to come over, your effort is very much appreciated.  xoxo.

  1. There are many husbands/blog photographers out there. How sweet they are for joining their wives on this journey. This is my favorite look on you so far. The top is beautiful and reminds me of something that would go down the New York runways. It comes even more aluve with the white jeans. Very nice you international woman :)
