Today’s is a cocktail of patterns and textures, just perfect to bring on the holiday cheer! 🙂 If you’ve been following my blog lately then you’ve probably noticed that I’ve really been warming up to ankara pieces and this skirt was no exception. It was a love story I tell you and regality aside, its elegant flare definitely won me over.
I was all about throwing caution to the wind by adding an ankara neck piece to the ensemble and with its bold elements and those of the skirt playing together, I opted for a top that’s simple and neutral, yet feminine enough to balance out the boldness of the print.
Also, a lot of you have been asking about my current hairdo so I thought I’d share some details. I used 5/6 packets of the long Abuja braids. I wanted to give my edges a break after the twists I had before, but I didn’t want a full head of lines. I had neat lines done at the front (finished off as twists) and twists all through the back. I had it done in town by a lady called Janet- +254 723 885828.
Hope you all had a fantastic weekend and managed to rest and recuperate enough to get you through the week! xx

Given the length of the skirt, I needed heels that allow me skyscraper height so I donned my Steve Maddens from Instyle Shoes, also worn here
