Ankara Neon

Hello beautiful people,

It is Thursday and the weekend it almost here…Yayyyyyy!

Like a blink of the eyes, the weekend is already around the corner. I am looking forward to going to New York with my friend for graduation shopping.

I really don’t have a specific thing that I am looking to buy. One of the main reasons that I like going to New York is that the stores that I love seem to have more and better items. For example, H&M stores in Maryland do not stock H&M Trends or collaborations. Also, there is no Topshop.

This will be the first fun thing that I will do since the completion of the requirements for my Masters program.

 With this outfit, I had the skirt made from an “Ankara” fabric, which is an Africa fabric. I received this fabric almost two years ago from my mother-in-law. Finally, last December, I decided to make a simple yet sexy skirt with a slit. Since the print/color of the skirt is toned down, I decided to add a little bit of color by pairing it with a simply neon green v-neck tee from Victoria’s Secret. 

                                                   What are you guys doing for the weekend?

Outfit: Self-made Ankara skirt

Macy’s jewelries (similar here)

Michael Kors watch (here

Zara shoes (another choice here)

Ray-bans glasses (here)

Hope you all have a nice day!

xoxo

    Hey, great look. It looks amazing and the blog is great too. Since you have such a great taste in fashion, I was hoping you could help me with an advice. I just bought a bag like this: http://www.tripleclicks.com/detail.php?item=133428/11653483 and a pair of leather gloves like these: http://www.tripleclicks.com/detail.php?item=133435/11653483. I simply adore them, but I don't know what I could wear with them. I hope you could give me an advice. Thank a lot and keep up the great work.
