Yesterday (October 1st) was the 52nd independence anniversary of Nigeria and I am wishing Nigeria a happy birthday. I am greatly influenced by my culture and my style is no exception. I always incorporate African prints into my style and this is visible in some outfits I wear for weddings, dinner dates or casual outings. In this post, I am wearing an African print dress which I designed last year (similar to my birthday dress here). You can wear it with heels like I did for a friend's birthday or with flats for a sunny stroll at the park.

Outfit: Dress (self-designed, love this here)
Aldo shoes (similar here)  
Zara bag (here, similar here)
Michael Kors watch (here)

Here is my "Nigeria Tag" Video...

Enjoy the rest of you day!
