Resort 17/18 is underway and while I orgle at vacation pictures on Instagram and on blogs in cold Scotland, I am comforted by the memories of my time in the tropics last month. I love going away and the planning what to wear on my trips. My motto is ‘When in Rome, do as Romans do’ that way, my outfits match the culture and climate of which ever City or country I am headed to.
For my trip to Lagos, it was loads of prints, light textures and succint hemlines. With it being a coastal city, I found the fabric I made this dress out of to be a perfect match with its aqua toned base colour and flamingo prints which depicts the ultimate tropical aesthetic.
I had initially planned to wear it to the beach with appropriate beach footwear but with it being a short break, it didnt fit into my schedule. Thanks to my Sisters I found this beach style fence right in the center of the city and it couldnt be more perfect to shoot this look.
Along with my blonde braids, I accessorised the look with feathered mules by Prada, a metallic mini bag by Dior and vintage earrings – ‘When in Lagos, do as Lagosians do’!x
