Hi Everyone, Welcome! Hope your weekend was great. I had a fantastic weekend. I also did a make over for one of my lovely “younger” friend who attended her graduation debs.
The African print(ankara) is basically taking its place in the fashion world. This last summer, I saw them in stores like Zara, Asos and also some high end fashion like Stella Jean. Jewel by Lisa has her own custom prints, she is one of the designers in Nigeria who is passionate about the ankara print.
In this post I am wearing a simple pencil skirt which was custom made for me the last time I went to Lagos, Nigeria. I did my little sketch and my tailor did a fantastic job making the skirt to my specification. I wanted fitted and midi and that was exactly what I got. Even though it is officially Autumn, the weather is still very nice and bright here in Ireland. The weather is my reason for wearing this gorgeous skirt. If I am been honest, I am not looking forward to the colder months.
I paired my skirt with a simple silk blouse in cream colour. I wanted a fresh and clean look combination with the print skirt. My earrings are a handbag design, thank you so much to Yemi for giving me such an amazing gift. She is my sister.
I tried something new with my braids this time, this style was actually a trial and error and I am happy with the result. I call this one a mermaid braid. I had on a bun here. My video for maintenance and styling my braids can be seen here.

I added a belt to accentuate my waist since the skirt doesn’t have it’s own band.
As always, I had to wear some arm candy. I love wearing layered bracelets. I am wearing one of my favourite cut out nudes from Kurt Geiger. Read my article about the reason why I love nudes/nude shoes here.
This picture reminds me of one of my fashion Icons,Victoria Beckham. That lady doesn’t know how much I look up to her and I wouldn’t mind meeting her one day. If you know her, tell her I would love to meet her….lol.
Thank you so much for stopping by. Let me know what you think, leave me a comment below. Wishing you a beautiful week ahead and God bless you.
This look is an expression of my own style. Ensure to do whatever you are happy with and do not let anyone tell you different. Good Luck.
Fashion is not how costly or how cheap, fashion is a passion…..Mojisola.
Every woman is beautiful, XO
A special thank you to Lola for choosing this print for me.
