This Ankara wrap peplum top is from Thm.co, remember I told you about them in a recent post named ‘THM-ed’ if you haven’t seeen that post yet, click here.

So, I decided to show you guys two ways I wore the wrap top.

Gone are those days that Ankara prints were limited to Friday’s only, precisely for Jumat service, I like how the print have been incorporated into our everyday day lives, so I thought I’d style it with a blazer and pants for work purpose and it turned out nice

For me, everything goes with a pair of jeans 😏. Here I wore the print top with a pair of jeans and I also liked how it looked.

That’s it guys, I hope you like Ankara prints like I do and you have overcome all of the limitations that were set on it.

Helloooo lovelies,

How have you been? It has been like a week since I last posted and some things have occurred on my end (not the ‘usual’ things) some of which I will be gisting you about soon. For today’s outfit post, I wore prints and a white skirt… I like how ankara prints are now incorporated in our everyday styles  unlike that time people felt they should be worn on fridays only (I really can’t stand fashion ‘rules’). I decided to match the ankara buba top (my mum’s) with a different print for my choker and different print for my hand band because in my opinion, no such thing as prints don’t match. Basically, I just did the usual, i expressed myself. *insert grinning emoji here*

What I wore

Buba (top)- Mum’s wardrobe

Chocker and Hand band- Ankara pieces

Skirt- Name has rubbed off

Shoes- Ami clubwear

Bead hand bands- Yaba (thrifted)

Bag- Too old to still have a name tag

Belt- I took it out of my mum’s skirt

What is your take on this look and  the mixed- print Ankara trend? How else would you style an ankara buba top like this one?
