While viewing my photo archives, I realized that I never shared these pictures with you. The pictures were taken in December 2011 while on vacation in Lagos, Nigeria. My outfit as worn in the post was unplanned. I was wearing a self-designed African Ankara print skirt with slits (not shown) that tore after I stumbled and fell. We were visiting some family members and it was dark in the house due to a power outage. I was carrying my hubby’s one year old niece while walking into the house and unknown to me, there was a small chair in the walkway. I tripped on the chair and fell. While falling, all I could think about was the little girl in my arms and luckily for us, she was unharmed. I was bruised and the slit on my knee length skirt tore. Thank goodness for a good ol African wrapper / fabric which I wrapped around my waist as my new skirt. 🙂
Looking at these pictures make me miss Nigeria and the late night suya (kebab) and movies.
Outfit: H&M blouse (old), Ankara fabric as skirt, Zara shoes (old, love this pair here), Asos clutch (old, love this here), Michael Kor watch (similar here)
Have a wonderful weekend!
