I haven’t spoken style for a while so let’s just talk style. Have you guys ever felt that you cannot define your style? I’m trying to find the words to define my style and I simply can’t. I feel I’m at that point where I’m excited about trying out new things, playing with different stuff just to see how it will come out.


At the same time I love the reserved outfits. I recently created a board of Vintage and preppy outfits on Pinterest and I Can’t wait to share a post on those two with you guys.

But on today’s post, I’m back to Ankara pieces and how timeless they are. Initially I was to do a look book on the skirt, which I promise I will and I was to do a shirt instead of a cosset but then I thought the cosset looked much better since it’s a Maxi skirt, I could show off  some skin with  the top.

Always remember,

“True love is healthy, respectful, and nurturing, whether it’s for ourselves or for another person. It’s positive, uplifting, constructive, and healing to those in our sphere of influence, including the person we look at in the mirror every single morning—ourselves.”
Laurie Buchanan, PhD.
