1 Dress, 6 Looks: Vampy, Beachy Vibes, On the Go, Simplicity, Work Flow, and Date Night.

Question: If you could only wear one item of clothing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Answer: T-Shirt dresses. Hands down. No contest.

I love me some T Shirt dresses, all day every day. So much so that I'm making my first styling post about this versatile closet staple. Well, it doesn't always feature in the *closet classics every woman should own* list but it should! Allow me to tell you why.
This silhouette is flattering to all body types - pear, hour glass, boxy - you name it. It's also one of the few items a lady can wear pre-maternity, during and after. Now if that isn't a win I dunno what is.

BOOK GIVEAWAY! The Language of Flowers

Amazon just delivered an order made 6 months ago that had gotten lost in transit! Thing is after 2 months' wait the delay was reported to Amazon and they efficiently replaced the lost books at no extra cost. So that's how it is that I find myself in possession of two copies of *The Language of Flowers*
Like all bibliophiles I wish more people read the books I love, that's why I'm putting the new copy of Flowers up for grabs in my first ever Book *Giveaway! For one thing florists would stop putting yellow roses in wedding bouquets. Secondly, we'd have more flower emojis to just convey  more emotions and meanings. Not to mention how romantic it all is :)

Anyone can grow into Something Beautiful

The Victorian language of flowers was used to convey romantic expressions: honeysuckle for devotion, asters for patience, and red roses for love. But for Victoria Jones, it’s been more useful in communicating mistrust and solitude. After a childhood spent in the foster-care system, she is unable to get close to anybody, and her only connection to the world is through flowers and their meanings.

Now eighteen and emancipated from the system with nowhere to go, Victoria realizes she has a gift for helping others through the flowers she chooses for them. But an unexpected encounter with a mysterious stranger has her questioning what’s been missing in her life. And when she’s forced to confront a painful secret from her past, she must decide whether it’s worth risking everything for a second chance at happiness.

The newly revamped African Woman Magazine has teamed up with Jumia Uganda to run a social media campaign showcasing unique Ugandan style dubbed #my256style where entrants post pictures under the hashtag and tag both @Africanwoman_magazine and @Jumiauganda to stand to win shopping vouchers with the online retailer.  Needless to say yours truly is giving it her best shot.

I'm not big on handbags. In fact I own only three, one of which is more of a satchel than a handbag if we're being honest here, and I have been using these three on rotation for the past two years.

This blogger life is not for having qualms about where to shoot or not to shoot. I’m fast realizing that I cannot walk away from a great location or an interesting prop without carrying out an impromptu photoshoot!

This blue monochrome look might be my favourite for the month! Although the month has just started so really there’s not that much to compare it to. I wearing feather earrings, paired with a long sleeved tee with a quill emblazoned prominently on its front and an embossed peacock print box pleat skirt.
