OOTD | Ankara Print

Ciao! Oh dearie, dearie me. Every once in a while I feel that I have to apologise for my blogging absence and lack of regular content. Today is one of those days but I promise I have a valid excuse. The last seven weeks has been quite hectic as I was working every day for six weeks. Yawn! I finally had some well-deserved time off last week, and to be completely honest, the last thing I wanted to do was blog. Instead, I spent my time socialising with friends and cuddling up in my pjs doing absolutely nothing. Complete and utter bliss lol :P 

I am now back to working every day for the next few weeks as I started a new internship today. However, I want to ensure that I get back into the swing of blogging so have a short post for you lovely readers. I hope you enjoy it :)

Being of a mixed-race heritage and growing up with two completely different cultural backgrounds, I have always been fascinated by cultures. I think there's nothing more beautiful than experiencing and embracing the culture and traditions of another race. One culture other than my own that I truly admire and appreciate is the West-African one. It is rich in tradition and I have completely fallen in love with their way of life. Hardly surprising as quite a few of my friends are of a Ghanaian and Nigerian heritage so I've been massively exposed to their culture including their language, cuisine and attire.

Consequently, my fondness for African printed garments, also known as Ankara, has grown over the past two years so I was delighted to come across this dress in Primark. Yes! You certainly did read that correctly. Primark. Lol! :P Are any of you guys a fan of African prints? Xx

  5. This is a beautiful dress, I can't believe its Primark!

    I'm also very fascinated in West African culture. My sixth form had offered opportunities to volunteer at a school in Ghana when I was seventeen. Unfortunately I was very ignorant at that age but I could seriously kick myself for it now!

    Remember to take that time for yourself but best of luck with your internship :) xx
