Blazer × Ankara Skirt

Hey fam, this post would have been up sooner but i had second thoughts bout it. The pictures didn’t come out as good as i wanted/ expected was really bummed bout it.  This is one of the cons of shooting alone; being so tired and sweaty from it, i didn’t really analyse the pictures critically.
Battled between posting it like that or retaking them but you can see which won.

Remember this blazer from this post? How time flies, that was the first and last time i wore it and as i mentioned in the last post here i’m in the spirit of wearing clothes i haven’t worn or in this case haven’t worn enough.

This white tee is my favorite thing right now, why does it seem I’m always preaching bout white shirts but seriously they are the best. I paired it with my denim dress in this post here and you would definitely see more of it.

Paired them with this ankara skirt from this post and gold heels.
If you been reading my blog for a while now you would know I’m a minimalist when it comes to jewellery, keep it simple is the motto.

Well fam tomorrow is my birthday, no plans yet but tomorrow is also the coronation of the Oba of Benin so it’s a public holiday and movement would be very difficult because major roads would be blocked for the ceremony but we’ll see how it goes.
Wishes and presents are definitely welcome.

What do you think of this outfit?

Style formula : blazer +  tee + ankara skirt + heels
Lots of love,
Sogie

    I understand the struggle with self photography, it's a been there done that situation but honestly the pictures look just fine. I love, love your white blazer. I can just see it styled with a pair of black flared trousers. Love how you simply opted for the necklace. Happy Birthday girl.

    I am particularly excited about the rise of afrocentric style, I foresee it being bigger next year, your white blazers are to die for… And Hey! It's your birthday? This couldn't have been better timed, happy birthday ma'am.

    Really cute outfit, the skirt is lovely! I blog about afrocentric fashion so it's really nice to see how other people style ankara pieces in a modern way.

    The blazer really brought the whole look together…Classy with a touch of native. I didn't even know you took the pics yourself till you mentioned it. Looks good to me.
