OOTD: Mad about Ankara

November 6, 2015

ankara print dress a

A couple weeks ago the lovely Adjoa of Ankara House sent me two beautiful African  printed pieces… I was gutted because it’s getting to winter and Ankara has such a summery feel about it. But last Sunday, we experienced a bout of miraculous sunshine and I took the chance to pop on my print dress. It was that hot that we went out in sandals and without jacket. This has to be my favourite shoot because the day felt like a holiday and everyone kept asking me where I got my dress from 🙂 I am so in love with the quality of the items Adjoa sent me. If you’re mad about ankara print like myself, you’re in luck! Ankara House have a special offer for the Art becomes you family.

The other item I received was a maxi peplum skirt. I can’t wait to style it!
