What To Wear In Nairobi

Nairobi is overall one of my favourite cities. Born and bred here, I love the cosmopolitan aspect of it. There are a few pet peeves like the city planning, transport system and traffic. But doesn’t every city have a pet peeve? Nairobi is a diverse city so pack according to the weather at the time you are travelling.

Nairobi experiences hot months from December up to March and rains from late March to May although this has not been the case over the past few years because of climate change. The cold season starts from June to August and short rains from September to November and this too is not consistent.

Living here all my life I have learnt to adjust and enjoy every weather that the city in the sun experiences. My favourite months of the year are December to March. My go-to outfits in Nairobi are Ankara dresses for weddings and weekends and Sunday best to church J during the cold season I keep myself warm with leggings, winter jackets and sweater tops.

These are my inspirations on what to wear in Nairobi!
