Live Life in Colour

Hello Style Lovers!

I make no apologies that I am proudly Naija (Nigerian)!  I could list a number of things that I love about my nationality but as it relates to style, I LOVE how colourful our attire is.  For a number of years, I have been obsessed with Ankara because it is an amazingly colourful fabric with unique wax printed patterns that can add flare to any outfit.  Currently, most of my pieces are skirts and I will be sure to feature them on future posts.

Today’s post features a skirt that my dad bought me on a recent trip back home!  The pattern is simple but the colours make me smile.

Blouse: Target (old) alternative option (here)
Skirt: Ankara
Shoes: Nine West (old) similar option (here)
Watch: Michael Kors Darci (here)

 Sunglasses: Loft (old) similar option (here)

Necklace: Gift (old) alternative option (here)

The a-line skirt features pleats in the front and identical pleats in the back and my oh-so favorite feature, pockets.  I don’t know what it is with me and pockets but they smarten almost any look.  The cut of the skirt gives also my columnar figure some shape and definition.

I decided to pair my skirt with a magenta Merona blouse from Target. By the way, starting today through 7/15, Target is offering 20% off women’s Merona apparel.  Act fast and you will be able to snag my skirt from last week’s post (here) at a discount.

For my accessories, I opted for my go-to nude d’orsay peep-toe pumps,  silver watch and large silver chain link necklace.

You only live once! Why not live your life in colour?

Keeping it simply stylish,
