orange & print

As weather is becoming more 'autumnal' and temperatures are more bearable, we've restarted our walks through city parks and this is what I've been wearing. Not intentionally I wore orange tops with printed skirts both days. However I picked my african wax printed skirt intentionally to link Modish Matrons do Africa as it's the only african item I own. I'm a huge fan of this kind of prints and I'd like to see more of them and more african designers too in magazines or street style!

Según el clima se va volviendo más otoñal y las temperaturas más llevaderas, hemos vuelto a nuestros paseos por los parques de la ciudad y ésto es lo que he estado poniéndome. No lo he hecho a propósito, pero me he puesto camisetas naranja con faldas estampadas las dos veces. Lo que sí ha sido a propósito es ponerme esta falda de tela africana para enlazar Modish Matrons do Africa ya que es la única prenda africana que tengo. Me encantan estos estampados y me encantaría verlos más a menudo y más diseños africanos en revistas o en street style.

  1. I am in love with you first skirt. I like the african prints too, but I have nothing to wear in this colorful printed stuff. Love your accessories :)

  2. I'm particularly fond of orange mixed with blues and purples, so both of your outfits make my pulse race. Your African waxed cotton skirt is a delight, and the necklace you're wearing with it is exactly my kind of thing as well. I actually love this time of year - if the weather behaves, that is - as even the hottest of days cool down overnight, which makes it much more bearable. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

  3. So beautiful!! Love all this colour and prints! It is starting to cool down here too. I hope you have a marvellous week ahead xx

  4. That African print is amazing! I see nothing here in the thrifts like that! You look fabulous in orange. I'm really glad you're able to resume your walks, and that the temps are back down to a livable level! Have a wonderful week, my dear!

  5. I love the bold patterns and colours of African wax cotton prints but they don't work with anything else in my wardrobe. The skirt looks great with the orange top.
