Ankara for Winter

Hi and thanks for stopping by my blog! Hope you are having a great start to the week? Keeping with my promise of weekly posts, I am sharing a few pictures from my outfit to church yesterday. I decided to rework one of my old favorites from a few years ago. I love Ankara! there is just something about the variety of vibrant colors and patterns it comes in, that simply makes me happy. It also reminds me of home:) I am African after all, so I have a ton of Ankara outfits in my closet. 

I was roaming through my closet trying to figure out what to wear yesterday when I found these two pieces which came as separates (the blouse came with a skirt), but I decided to pair them together. Ankara isn't exactly winter friendly but I found a way to work the look while staying warm. It is so cold here in Atlanta, so I added a basic black 3/4 sleeve top to stay toasty.

I decided to take pictures with both my black and nude pumps because I loved both looks :)  I borrowed my hubby's coat, which just paired perfectly with the outfit. (Yes I dig through his stuff once in a while, lol) What do you think of the look? Which shoes would you have paired the outfit with? Do you ever wear ankara in the winter?
