Ankara with a Forever Find!

My mommy was in town this past weekend for my graduation and I could not have been happier because she is my favorite person...hubby too!  I'm sure like most mothers, she will do anything for me and one of the smaller things she did was have some Ankara wear made for me.  Ankara clothing can be described as using typically African influenced vibrant fabrics, sewn into more modern "westernized" styles.  I  got this simple pencil skirt which I paired with a plain satin white shirt and my $30 sandals I'd recently found at forever 21 & love.  My mom and I had fun taking the pictures and I think more than the outfit, I love the memory from our shoot on this hot day.

Deal Alert: Express & express.com is having $25 off $75 or $50 off $150 through Sun (code 1719)









Skirt- Ankara made (Similar on sale here), Shirt - H&M (Similar here), Shoes- Forever 21 (Similar here), Clutch- New York & Company[old] (I like this here), Sunglasses- H&M (Similar here, here). 

Thanks for visiting!

Yvonne
