Banana Leaves

I'm not going to lie. It's been quite the week. There have been some ups and downs. My courses, work, and life in general are stressing me out but honestly when everything is "perfect" I get a bit worried. I get worried because I feel there is something I should be doing or somewhere I should be. I guess that's just human nature. We tend to be very restless. I am extremely happy it is friday though and I can relax this weekend. Although as I am writing this I should be working on a research paper that is due at midnight. We all know I am the procrastinating queen!  

Now for this outfit! I was sent this lovely kimono from the lovely people at Dresslink and I am in love with anything with banana leaves print. I also want to give a shoutout to my amazing photographer, my close friend Leah. I am trying to get her to start a fashion blog because she has amazing style. We will just have to wait and see but I have a good feeling she will start one soon. Fingers crossed!

Hope you all have a relaxed and lovely weekend!

Dashiki Love


The Dashiki trend is something I have seen throughout this year. The Dashiki originated from the Western part of Africa. Places like Ghana, Nigeria, Liberia, Benin although it has grown to represent a majority of countries in Africa. I am Nigerian and growing up the Dashiki was part of the "traditional" wear and not until recently did it become something causal. Mainly the style of Dashiki I'm wearing in this post has become the casual trend but the Dashiki has a long cultural heritage with African people. I'm glad it has become a trend and part of Western culture although I do not want it to lose it's original heritage like most things do once they enter western culture. So if you find yourself wearing a Dashiki remember the roots and history that piece of clothing carries. It is not merely a trend but a representation of a people.
