It just started raining in Nairobi, and all I can say is that is has sweater weather vibes in the country. Most people are digging in their closets looking for that turtle neck sweater and hoodie collection. I am one of those people that do not dress appropriately for the weather. When it is hot I am mostly in black clothing, leather jackets and a couple of sweaters with nothing underneath, but a vest or tee. The good thing about the weather out here is that it’s never too rainy when the rainy season begins, the sun always finds a way to shine. (Both figuratively speaking and actual climate change). Over the weekend I had the chance to go to the K1 Flea Market which you can read about here. It was a good time, end of April and the sun was shining , plus I had a couple of friends coming to hang out.
I just got these graphic and plain tees on sale at Mr Price Kenya , and I settled for one of my new favorite pieces, the pineapple tshirt. The graphic tee is simply all the rage and has always been a go-to style item, it can be as simple as the famous Nirvana smiley face , or an elaborate even geometric design. The Pineapple has always been catchy and dare I say popular, from cameos in Sponge Bob to it being used as jars and tins, and not to forget , the Pineapple being a Tiki favorite.
Graphic tees are easy to style and fun to wear, some come with different colors and patterns which you dress up , with a pair of trousers and sneakers , or you can dress down a graphic tee by pairing it with a pair of denim jeans or shorts and plimsolls.
