An ankara top styled with "Daywear"/checkered print


"I know this is redundant but I absolutely love prints and love to play around with them. That's why I thought it would be interesting to pair an ankara top with my "daywear" skirt. Since this is an unusual pair I was careful to follow my golden rule to mixing different prints

'Prints should have something in common such as color or pattern" 

In this case the color red is the common factor. Finding shoes to go with the outfit was another challenge. I wore this outfit while on a trip to Nigeria so my shoes were limited. However, my limited access to shoes made me realize that printed shoes really go well with printed clothes - I'm wearing floral print shoes. They blend well with the ankara top because of the color purple which they both have in common.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, floral prints are in this Spring so get right on it."
