I’ve been raiding Mum’s wardrobe again, though not so much her wardrobe more like her bedroom, where I found this beautiful piece of material, that for todays look I turned into a wrap style skirt. Years and years ago on a holiday that she took to Dubai, she bought herself loads of different materials from one of markets. On the material, the label says West Africa and so I can only assume that this is where it originates from and not that I have any real knowledge on African prints but I remember thinking that if I had to take a guess what kind of print it was, then some form of African print is what I would have guessed.
Taking a bit of material and turning it into a skirt is one to easiest things to do, all you pretty much need, is a belt! Plus it makes you feel like that you are a designer who can take on the fashion world at any point ;D
To really keep all focus on this amazing print, I styled the look with a sense of minimalism in mind. I wore the material with a semi fitted top and my Newbark slides, that are still my go-to shoes two summers into owning them. I finished off with a hat that I couldn’t decide whether was right for the look or not, hence why I took photos with it both on and off. I also added in this beautiful shell necklace, that also once belonged to my mum, not sure where it comes from, could be some tropical island or it could be Topshop. Who knows….
