Happy Jamhuri day Kenyans! To my International readers: Happy Monday, how you doing? Today is a Public holiday in my country which means am not going to work. Okay, maybe that sounds like I don’t have my priorities right but if you worked Monday to Monday including Sunday then you would totally understand where I am coming from. I sometimes long for such holidays because one can only take so much fatigue and considering that I had to attend a wedding on Saturday which drained so much energy from me. I know I sound mean but I am an introvert and one of the hardest things is creating small talk and interacting with people so as not to be called a snob. Despite all that I endured my at uncle’s wedding, it was a total success.
Jamhuri Day is a national holiday in Kenya, celebrated on 12 December each year. Jamhuri is the Swahili word for “republic” and the holiday is meant to officially mark the date of Kenya’s establishment as a republic which happened on 12 December 1964. The country also gained full independence from the United Kingdom one year earlier on 1st June 1963. Jamhuri Day is regarded as Kenya’s most important day, marked by numerous festivities which celebrate the country’s cultural heritage.
Let’s talk about the elephant in the room which is the distressed sweater that am wearing, I saw a budding blogger wearing it and I decided to get one myself. This sweater reminds me of the Yeezy season two collection that consists of rugged/distressed clothes but I won’t discus Kanye on this post. I decided to style this distressed sweater with a pair of white jeans and a pair of stilettos, this is a great look to wear to the mall today. Have a great Jamhuri day fellow Kenyans and to the rest of my non-Kenyan readers have a great Monday!!
Stay fashionable, stay stylish and be a fashion style mogul!
