“Travelling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.” – Ibn Battuta.
Not so long ago, I had the chance to visit the beautiful town of Bagamoyo. Before I indulge you in the details of this post, allow me to talk about this historic town for a moment, which is about an hour’s drive from Dar es Salaam. Taking a stroll through the town’s narrow streets takes you back to the time when Bagamoyo was an important trading port for ivory and slave trade. Although nothing much happens in this town today, it is still an ideal day trip location, away from the hustle and bustle of Dar es Salaam.
So, now you know where I shot these crisp images from! Naturally, as a fashion blogger, I sometimes tend to go over the line with my outfits. Case in point, consider this outfit which consists of this amazing shirt dress by ASOS, shorts by Hunter Blue (which is one of my favourite stores in Dar) and these pair of gladiator pumps by Kandee Shoes. Of cause, this is not a common outfit to spot out and about in Bagamoyo and I should have switched up my pumps with flats but… I was comfortable and I loved my outfit.
This look is very easy to recreate even for a casual date; just take your boyfriend’s shirt and dress it up with killer heels and you are good to go!
Have a great weekend and be safe!
