Happy New Year!! Well, it’s been a while. But we really hope your new year is off to a good start and that you are conquering your resolutions a day at a time. We have been okay; trying to set new plans and goals for the blog as well. We have been off the blogging scene for a while now- we unfortunately lost both our laptops late last year hence the silence but that is behind us now. ;-)We are quite positive about 2016. We hope you will journey and venture with us this year, yeah?

So we were to post this look sometime before Christmas just to share outfit ideas for a vacation. However, one of our resolutions this year is to be more adventurous, tour and explore our country, venture into new things on the blog!! And what exactly do you need for such ventures?
For a day in the beach or for that nature trail at Karura Forest, OR Aboretum, Giraffe Centre, khaki shorts are just perfect! Our looks were simple and chic-you do not want to be over-dressed when going for a relaxing nature trail, do you? Shorts are a holiday/vacation must have especially if the weather is quite friendly. (Our shorts are chinos hence the front seems a lil bit baggy)
Another vacation must-have is your sunglasses! It is always good to invest in a good pair of sunglasses that offers great UV protection. You also need a comfy pair of shoes, probably a light pair just to ensure you don’t get tired from the weight of your shoes.
A hair updo is also a good idea when you are set for an adventure. If you have braids, (like Ciku), a bun come very handy. For the naturalistas, you can tie it up like Margie did. This just reduces the stress of having to flip your hair all the time. 😉
Sling bags or light funky bag packs are also great when going for a simple adventure depending on the amount of things you intend to carry. Ciku opted for a sleek sling bag which is very suitable for short ventures where you can carry a lipbalm, pocket tissues, your sunglasses case; just a few light essentials. Margie opted for the funky bag pack which is ideal for longer ventures. Such a bag can accommodate a bottle of water, a sweater, in case the weather changes,etc.
For accessories, it is very advisable to keep it very minimal.:-)
We hope that you are ready to venture into new things this year as we are. Take short walks; they are very eye-opening. Grab your pair of shorts, sling bag, sunglasses and loafers and lets venture together this new year.
Keep it Chic and Legal,
Margie and Ciku
