Hello everyone, welcome to my first style post of the year infused with ankara print. I’m glad to finally share an ankara feature on my blog. Ankara has always been a life saver because when I’m lost on what to wear, it’s easy to grab a print piece especially a bright one, mix and match and you’re good to go.
Would you believe I’ve had these ankara shorts for almost a year(Feb 2017) and I hadn’t been able to wear them till now??!! I cupped these shorts at Mentedemoda in February, 2017. Mentedemoda is a monthly shopping experience with various vendors which holds every month in Lagos. I’m a sucker for ready made ankara clothing and the bright print of the shorts caught my eye. I couldn’t try them on cos the vendor stalls are in an open space but they looked like they will fit. I did my bargaining, paid and was happy with my find. When I got home, I tried them on and they wouldn’t go up. To say I was sad is putting it mildly, I was more disappointed.
However, I kept this piece in my closet. I’d try it on from time to time just incase my hips magically disappeared. I kept it aside for a long time and tried it on in December when I was packing and it fit(to be fair, I’ve lost a significant amount of fat around my lower body). You can imagine the excitement I felt to be able to dress up with them on so that’s what birth this post.
I paired the shorts with an easy orange camisole, a brown versatile bucket bag from @slmsignature and brown slippers. I mixed different shades of brown and orange together and it came together looking real nice if I do say so myself.
To trying new things and taking chances!
