A print party


 zara shirt
market find skirt
alexander wang heels

In between seasons, I'm in between deciding what I want to wear. The climate change of flying to Thailand might have something to do with it, but it's nice to get a little summer preview. I'm kinda having a hard time layering on anything else than a bikini at the moment but this holiday will, as they all always tend to, be over before you know it. I'm not exactly located anywhere near Africa, but I fell for a local lady selling these African printed skirts. Hard not to get impressed when most I've seen so far is fake bags and angry birds printed everything, everywhere.

I wore it with a shirt I bought from Heathrow airports Zara (!) and a beautiful bag by Laura Vela. No need for me lecture you on print mixing, because leopard print go with everything.

Usually African batiks are so stiff, your skirt looks so fluid, and really rad against that belt. killer find! Kenzo Fall 2013? I think so.
