Hey loves. Hope you’re all good. I have so much to do before leaving for the Cape but with this dull Nairobi weather all I’ve been getting up to is sitting in bed all day indulging in food and series. I have only two more days left and I’m already feeling homesick.
Anyway I’m way too excited about today’s post. I’ve really wanted to do a Nigerian style post for a while now. I think Nigerian women are so strong-willed and admirable. When I was younger, my family and I got a chance to meet a Nigerian family and we instantly became family friends. We had a chance to host both the mum and sweet daughter for a few days and it was really interesting to mix with a different culture. Their courage, bravery and confidence in the way they walk, talk and live their lives in general really fascinated me. We also got a chance to visit Nigeria when I was 12 which was pretty cool as it was the first time I had been out of the country. I was particularly amazed by their style of dressing. My mum had been a fan of their attire for a while back and had a collection of west African clothing which she would buy on her various trips to west Africa. However, seeing it first-hand was something else. The bold, rich colours, with the strong fabric and beautiful patterns were so overwhelming. Also, who can forget the extravagant head wrap ties…I believe the big head wrap style originated from west Africa and is now so trendy all over the world..so you see? Such trend setters…Also, let’s be honest….aren’t they just making it in life? We all need to follow in their foot steps and become goal-driven and flourish too! I could list a whole long list of strong Nigerian women to admire but that would take forever so I’ll leave my post here. Hope you enjoy the photos. This particular dress is borrowed from my mummy. She got it when she went on a trip to Ghana.
