Nostalgia: Gold and Patterned Orange

So I was about to put on a completely different dress but then half way through i changed my mind. This feeling of nostalgia washed over me and I remembered this outfit which had surfaced a couple weeks back when i was playing dress up. I had previously worn this gold mini dress for my birthday back in 2011 and hadn't found any occasion or piece that inspired a desire to re-style and wear it, until that faithful totally random day . I had tried this mini on and paired it with this orange patterned pencil skirt with a lot of red accents and it  immediately made Adim and I nostalgic because it was too reminiscent of wedding colors and attires back home. Gold and red are very popular wedding colors in Nigeria and the patterns are very reminiscent of the usually patterned traditional wedding and occasion attires worn to weddings at home. So I paired this ensemble with lace studded court shoes and i was set to go...... well except for the little detail of being miles away from home. So i set it aside and decided to wait for a time were it would make perfect sense to wear it. Apparently that day was today... why? because i felt like it! I decided since we have a habit of dressing up to church back home, today was as good a day as any but mostly i really was in the mood for a little piece of Nigeria. xxx

                           [Disclaimer : I wore a jacket over the top to church, so no raising of eyebrows please :P]




 




                                        I love her jacket and she cant seem to get enough of these sandals!
