I travelled to Ghana in April for a short break and had such a lovely time chilling out with my family and friends. A close friend of mine (a designer and stylist based in Ghana) loves fashion (yes - birds of a feather flock together!) so when we meet, we spend hours talking about fashion and current trends in both Ghana and the UK. I love all things pink and fuchsia, so when my friend presented this lace skirt (layered with organdy fabric) to me I was so excited. My first thought was “I need to take a picture for my blog - the world needs to see this”, and rightly so, the colour is beautiful. The skirt came as a surprise, so I didn’t really have clothes to match with it. However, I decided to improvise and work with what I had in my suitcase at the time. And lo and behold, I had items in my suitcase that I could match with the skirt. As the skirt is very bold and colourful, I decided to wear it with a plain white vest top from Primark. I then teamed the outfit with a pair of fuchsia high heels from New Look, which I bought two years ago but haven’t worn. Earlier this year I bought a pair of fuchsia tassel earrings from H&M, which again I haven’t worn, but this was the opportunity to do so. I completed the look with my new sunglasses from Mango…just to add a little swag. If you are loving my skirt as much as I do and you are in Accra contact @henriettaokine via instagram for a custom made skirt of your own and get your swag on!
