Orange Is The New Black

Hi Fashion Lovers,

I have fallen back in love with prints and colors and I've been wearing them nonstop since Spring arrived. When I saw this top it reminded me of the Ankara prints and other printed fabrics that I see mostly worn by Africans. Random fact about me: I am obsessed with African culture, from their gele and their amazing fabrics, to their one of a kind beauty.

Since it was warm but still cool this day I paired my elephant printed top with my fave boyfriend jeans ( I warned you guys that these pants will be in heavy rotation this Spring/Summer) and my go to black blazer. To bring out the color on the bottom of the top I paired this with a bright orange bowler bag (thus the title).  I really love how this look came together and I hope you do too.

(Stylenote: The Top and the Bag are both very recent purchases but I looked to find links for you guys and apparently they have both sold out)
Top and Blazer- Forever 21+  (sold out)
Pants- Torrid -( here)
Shoes-Steve Madden 
Bag -River Island -(similar here)
Shades-Ebay (old) (similar here)
Until Next Time,
