I hope you are doing great!
So right after high school we had a really long break …like a 10 months break
( it felt more like 2 ) but yeah. Instead of sitting home for 10 months doing nothing constructive.. i ( mostly my parents ) decided i should sign up for computer classes at IAT.
Unlike most people who did accounting or learnt a different language , my goal was to become computer literate . Not that i didn’t know how computers work but there’s never an end to learning 🙂
It was also a perfect opportunity to learn the CBD , which i’d wanted to know . I mean how can i live in Nairobi and not know where Archives was?
The classes started in January and the first day was quite interesting . When got there i was placed in a class with people i had never met before , not even once …
For those who know me , they know that i like to go out of my way to say hello to people and smile at them because first impressions are everything …but not in this case .Everyone was on their phones and i didn’t know what to do , so i sat there for like five minutes before i realized that everyone was on their phone because of free WiFi so you can guess what i did next , i joined ’em. 🙂
The next class is where i met these two lovely people who feature in this blog post today, Luke aka African Fresh Prince and Fiona . The seat next to me was unoccupied so Luke came and sat near me , he beat me to greetings and told me i had a nice sweatshirt and i smiled . I obviously knew it was nice so i didn’t say thank you and that’s how our friendship started .
As for Fiona and Luke , their friendship is of another kind…if you know what i mean ;)Fiona would come to our class frequently to see her friend and that’s how they met and like they say , the rest is history.
As for whether i learnt town, i kind of did …i only know buildings but not streets . I blame that on Luke.
For this post , the outfit inspiration was denim..Fiona went for a more girly but edgy look with a mesh A line skirt and a denim vest . This was complimented by brown wedges that completed the look.
Luke went for a more bad boy denim on denim look. The key to nailing this look is making sure that the denim is not of the same colour .
I went for a more chic and laid-back look with tights and an over sized denim jacket , the shoes were custom painted by my friend Maggie . The hat just topped off the look.
