Hi everyone and Happy end of the month! I just came back from my little vacation in the UK and thought what better way to end the month of August  than with a little bit of African print! I love African Print (Ankara) material designed in today’s modern styles and you will be seeing me wearing a lot more of it in the coming months! So stay tuned! Yes – I know, I know… I haven’t done an outfit post in so long and I’m slowly incorporating them back into the blog again as I have been asked to do more outfit posts!!

I am wearing a blazer sewn by a Cameroonian tailor and the African print material used to sew this was material my mom had laying around when I was in Cameroon for Christmas and New Years. It’s amazing what you can do with left over material. So thank you Mom for letting me to invade your closet! I hope you like it. The month of August has been very good to me and I look forward to September with a bang!

PS: Picture credit goes to my friend and fellow blogger Yefon Mainsah (blogger for I Rep Camer) at my favorite Thai/Malaysian restaurant called Penang. That weekend we both attended the Semi-Annual African Networking Event in Philadelphia! My write up on that will be coming soon so stay tuned for that! xoxo… ME

      Ok Arrey… Coat it is! 🙂
      I’m glad you like it. African prints are the best and one "coat" can be worn in so many different ways.
