Mama Africa Stylin’

Hello guys,

I’m back again with another style post, last weekend I was absent from the blog and I apologize for that. I was swamped with the task of moving back home and trying to get my whole life on track.

I hope we had a good week tho? I spent most of  mine unpacking, planning and also lazing about.

In this post; I’m wearing something totally different from my regular style.

I’ve had this Ankara (African print) material for  a while now and I had no idea what to make of it, then one day during my usual Instagram scrolling scrolling; I stumbled on an African print, pleated maxi skirt by an African inspired wear brand. I thought to myself, I can replicate this and that’s exactly what I did.

I gave my material to a budding tailor and she nailed it. Maxi skirts aren’t really my thing yet this one felt and looked nice too. What do you think?

I paired the skirt with a black, cotton, long-sleeved top, black heeled – sandals and I made a turban from the leftover material. I also stuck with simple accessories because less is always more.

Peep my raffia purse which I got last minute; it totally came in handy for this shoot with the whole African theme I got going. Totally serving Mama Africa Vibes!

It’s funny how most of my Ankara fabric comes in pink, purple and blue. I really need to embrace other colors and switch it up.

I took these shots around my NYSC house (If I can call it that), something like a farewell to The Town. I love the whole contrasting vibe that was present in the environment. Can you feel it too?

That’s it guys; I just might make one or two more maxi skirts as the spirit leads.

What’s your take?

Are maxi-skirts your thing?

How would you style this?

I’d love to hear from you.

    1. Thanks Kunle. That house really holds a lot of memories and I’m surely going to miss it but we move yeah? Yes! Asides the African theme I was also aiming for a modest look and I’m glad you noticed. I’ll definitely hurry up and put together something for the coming weekend. Thanks for your support truly appreciate it.
