A Lifestyle Blog With An African Twist

Share It and Make It Lighter

Hello and welcome to The Cooking Wardrobe.

Hope your week is going steady so far and you are loving this life that the good Lord has given you. I am just happy because I get to sleep in tomorrow morning as its a public holiday in my corner of the world.   They say its the queens birthday weekend so we can stay home and have high tea hehe or get up to no good if you like, as long as you are sober enough on Tuesday morning to make it to work.

All the pieces in this outfit except le pumps are repeat offenders to this blog.  Said top was seen here, le skirt here, les purse, earrings, sunnies and bracelet so many times, I need a whole post for just the heres and I swear they are not organs attached to my body, they are removable accessories.  Just thought I should make that clear before you all start thinking I am some sort of a style or fashion cyborg.

Moving on, my weekend was great, one of my sisters and her husband came over for a visit  and I am ashamed (wink, wink)  to say that we devoured so much food, it was disgraceful.  Like seriously who does that? I can however honestly say that every load becomes lighter when shared.  If you are carrying something that is bothering you, be it mentally or physically or in my case kitchenically (you can thank me later when it becomes a word hehe), share it, talk to someone you trust or pray and God will give you his grace.  

Thank you for stopping by and reading.  Hey, don't go quietly, let me know you were here and I will come and visit you.  Enjoy the rest of your week.  xo

  1. Effortlessly classy and gorgeous, odo. Your makeup is on fleek!! :)


  2. I died laughing about making a post just for the heres. Sleeping in and drinking high tea sounds like a great idea. I adore your skirt and your whole look is stunning. I'll remember to share the load kitchenically from now on, hehe.

  3. Whenever I stop by your blog am in for a laugh. I just love the new word invention and I will keep it in mind when you become famous for creating the word. Sharing our problems take so much load off us when shared with the right person (Salone people dem wae lek talk so) but is sure help finding a solution. Sister am with you on shamefully devouring food this week as we were also celebrating my sisters birthday. Enjoy your new week and by the way Australia is one funny country, we celebrated the Queens Birthday her in QLD in June and you guys are celebrating it now.. I don't understanding this unique country sometimes.

    Enjoy your lazy day..

  4. Repeat offender, indeed!! But I love the top with this skirt too. All hail the Queen!!

  5. Wonderful outfit and it's great to see you at Vis Monday, Elsie! xo

  6. This is my kind of outfit. So very flattering and colourful. Your peplum is lovely and your pencil skirt is feminine yet fun with all the colours. You look great.

  7. The colors are so vibrant and you are rockin'. . . I am still loving the Hair!

  9. Looking so ready for Summer in this outfit. Enjoy your Queens Birthday Long Weekend, we had ours in June.

  10. Ah! love this combo. You are right, a problem shared is a problem half solved. You look amazing.

  11. I love the humor in your writing. Funny how visiting family makes us consume more food than normal :)

  12. Elsie! Pretty you in your sweet and simple combination ... excellent with heels and a sweet little clutch. You really have an eye for styling with accessories. Always just enough, and often a nice surprise that works like a charm.
    Glad you had a great mini-holiday with family!
    Kitchenically? Great word. Culinarilly? Gastrocentrically?


Thanks for checking out my blog and leaving me a comment. I love reading your views as they inspire me to continue doing this blog. Love Elsie
