    My Tribute to WAKANDA…

      “As feminists we have to understand that we can be strong and badass but also take cognizance of the role we play as women” This might seem cliche and beating the already dead horse but the movie ‘‘Black Panther”  spoke to me on so many levels hence I decided to do a style tribute to the strong women of Wakanda. I am not going to go into any details about the movie so there would be no spoilers however I will touch on aspects that resonated with me.

    Style is bold and about taking risks but it is also having fun throughout the process of executing your look. This look is everything for me, peep my accessory behind.😊 (I just had to pay my respects). This is a nostalgic look because it reminds me of rides with a grandfather I loved so much. This week’s ootd is a winning combination of summer’s staple, a graphic tee and Ankara pencil skirt. Usually, graphic tees are always paired with Jeans hence I decided to switch it up a bit. The ankara skirt elevates the tee from a casual look to something more sophisticated complimenting the other perfectly. Here, I paired the look…
