Not to be mistaken for the typical trend offender but if Beyonce had an open casting to join her girl squad, here’s what I’d gear up in – this is war!

*cue formation*

In times of crazy heat waves and unquenchable thirst, the only thing more daunting than traffic in mobile machines without air conditioning is probably picking out an outfit that’s light enough to allow for circulation and short enough to not be deemed slutty. In this case I’m not quite sure which one I nailed but I can tell you this, I sure did feel sexy for a split second.

When it comes to dressing for such obvious devastating weather in Nairobi, my mind literally knots up frantically trying to foreshadow the culmination of cold fixed stares verses those of block admiration and lust. It’s a thin, frail line. Having grown up with such strong influences in pop culture and admittedly my mum’s non-modest proclamation of what great legs we have left me particularly biased to shorter hemlines when it come down to shopping; a light profanity and possible gross violation of ‘Kenya Culture’ all in the cavernous cliche I GOT IT FROM MY MAMA.

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not apologizing for my choices, at least not for now because if I did, I’d lose a bit of that sass and a spot on Queen B’s team – I couldn’t live with myself.

Did I mention that I kinda chopped my hair đŸ˜€ đŸ˜€ Shout out to all my natural sisters (:

    Thanks boothang!
    Always skeptical about the big chop but I’m getting more confident with my decision with such positive feedback (:
