Transitioning To Fall | Ankara Maxi Print


Happy Friday Cupcakes…

With the vastly low temperatures and the continuous rain that we have been experiencing here in the last couple of weeks, it`s with no doubt that Summer is officially over. Well HELLO FALL!!!

I`m not a really Fall/Winter kind of person just because i dread this cold weather so much. Did i mention how cold it can get here in Germany?? The thought of it is actaully depressing!! But just because it is a low key season for me doesn`t mean life has stopped! Nooo… In the contrary, i`m planning to experiment and explore more this season with different pieces. It`s finally time for my fall warddrobe to make an appearance πŸ™‚

Ankara Maxi Dress_01

I have always loved anything with a maxi touch to it, mostly dresses. And one thing i knew for sure was that i needed a maxi dress in an ankara print version! Before my trip to Ghana two years ago, i had already planned and designed some of the dresses that i wanted to be custom made for me… This my lovely friends was one of them! I had a rough idea of how i wanted it to be. I was going for something bold and vibrant… And ofcourse, the fabric that i was looking for had to have a unique print!

The length of this dress and it`s long sleeves is what makes it more appropriate for fall. I always prefer to have a cover up with me just incase it gets chilly throughout the day. I would throw over a black blazer to make it more elegant and chic or a well fitted black leather jacket to give it an edgy look…..

Ankara Maxi Dress_02

I decided to add a dark blue belt to bring back life and dimension to the whole outfit…….

Ankara Maxi Dress_03

For my accessories, i went with a gold neckpiece and some simple earings.. Just simple the way i like it!

Can i just confess that i`m obsessed with blue nail polish?? I own them in every blue shade that i come across πŸ™‚

And it`s really ok at times to just use your smile as your accessory. A smile πŸ™‚ is the prettiest thing you can wear! And guess what?? You don`t have to pay anything to flaunt it… Can it get any better than that loves??

Ankara Maxi Dress_07

I am planning to transition most of my summer wardrobe into this fall season by layering up. I can`t wait to share my new finds with you…

But till then, enjoy the rest of the photos and most of all have a great weekend!!

    Oh milly wow!! You are look radiant in that yellow patterned maxi, it truly suits you. In fact, you should ALWAYS wear that color! Love the belt for dimension and thank you for being honest about your feelings towards fall/winter. You are the first honest one I’ve read – it gets cold everywhere unless you live in California and I can’t imagine everyone is just “SO EXCITED FOR IT!!!!”

      Aaaaw thank you Kelly.. Was just being honest you know.. I really dread when winter and fall season comes cause I’m that type of person who gets cold so fast. I have an iron deficiency and that has to be one of the reasons why I get so cold.. But its something I have to deal with. Thank you so much for your kind words.. Really appreciate it

    I’m sure it gets just as cold over here in the Netherlands as over there in Germany. Though I think the air is dryer over there than here. So your cold temperatures should actually be nicer to feel than our cold temperatures! Anyway, I plan to just wear tights and boots! πŸ˜›

    You look gorgeous in this maxi dress! Love the colour and the pattern! And for transition part from summer to fall.. those shoes are still perfect! πŸ™‚

    Fall definitely is upon us. Not such a fan of this terrible weather right now! I actually live in Berlin and the weather has been stunningly sunny but am currently in the US to be with family right now and the weather is so gloomy πŸ™ Love the dress though, and how you have brought the brightness out through your fashion choice!

      The weather has been surprisingly doing great this week but i dont think it will last that way…. And i think we just have to cope with it for a while now cause we dont have an option right? I have never been to Berlin but i think it is a beautiful place. Bremen on the other hand is pretty small compared to Berlin but i love itthat way!
