It’s that time of year again and if you’ve been an avid follower of my blog, then you know that it’s not exactly rocket science to put a cute lil’ ‘fit together for Safaricom International Jazz Festival! However, there’s a really thin line between looking super cool and looking like you had a different event in mind when picking out what to wear. I definitely want you guys to fall in the latter category, which is why I’m sharing tips on what you should totally ditch for the concert this Sunday!
Safaricom International Jazz Festival is a fun-for-all family show.
keep it PG ditch the skimpy clothing. Lol! You’ll be doing yourself such a huge favour, because I can’t imagine anything more uncomfortable than looking like a ratchet night out (we love those once in a while though) at a day time event 🙁
Did I mention it’s a day time event?
Jazz sounds pretty fancy and if you’ve never attended the event before, it’s easy to get the wrong idea of what it’s like. The festival is a rather casual affair, so hopefully you’ll exhaust your desire to rock the hot dinner dress you’ve been dying to wear, on Valentine’s Day, because come Sunday afternoon, it’ll be time to put those away and bring out the tasteful summer pieces instead! 😉
PS: Gates to the event open at noon!
Leather is not your friend.
It’s been so hot lately, the last thing you want to do to yourself is put together an outfit featuring leather pieces. Well, unless you’re cool with melting.. (see what I did there? 😀 )
Stiletto heels, yay or nay?
Safaricom International Jazz Festival is going down at Kasarani Training Grounds, an open and uneven field. This spot is perfect for picnics during the concert, but the terrain is not entirely comfortable for walking around in 6″ stilettos. Now, if you have the ability to endure the pain of stiletto heels gracefully, then that’s pretty dope! If not, comfort is definitely key. Sneaks, low-heel ankle boots, flats or wedges are the way to go.
PS: Although there is a pretty lit list of vendors serving everything, from soft drinks, to boozy ones (the Jack Daniels stand always has such nice and cheap cocktails!) and various fast food options, you have the option to pack your picnic bag and bring your own food and sealed drinks!
Did you notice I didn’t mention sandals in the list of comfy shoe options? Lol! I have a love-hate relationship with sandals as an option for Safaricom International Jazz Festival. Love, because they are definitely super cute and feminine. Hate, because there’s a high chance your feet will end up covered in this January dust! I’ll let you be the judge of this one 😛
