Summertime Fly

I have to get as many as my summer looks posted before the end of the season haha! I wore this casual but fly look at the International Festival of Life aka the African Caribbean Fest back in June. Capleton, one of my favorite reggae artists was performing so I had to make an appearance.




I received this top as a gift from the Ivory Coast. The proper name of it has slipped my mind (and I'll update you all with it soon), but as you see it resembles the West African dashiki top. I love everything about this top from the vibrant colors to the its thick texture, which is a way to tell the authenticity of African attire.

It's a little roomy on me (I believe it's for men) so I tucked it in a pair of retro jean high waist shorts to give it a vintage-like feel.




I purchased this sassy little woven fabric purse and the wood and beaded snap belt this past spring and I thought both would be perfect additions to this look. 



These shoes? Let me get into 'em real quick. I fell in love with these beauties at first sight. These cloth eyelet shoes are from the brand Lower East Side and resemble classic oxford shoes. They matches perfectly with my cloth purse.

My favorite thing about this look is the accessories. Accessories are always the icing and the cherry on top for any fashion ensemble. I love to take risks and mix and match beads, wood, shells, and anything else. Very earthy and natural which was the look I was going for.


That's all for now, folks. Cute, simple, and straight to the point!

    I am from Burkina Faso, so I live for the Ivory Coast reference (dunno the name of the top though.)
