Casual with an Ankara Edge

A new week is here with us & the December weather is being true to itself, cold, windy & rainy. It's time to get out those Christmas decorations to bring in some little shine into our Homes & slowly get into the Christmas mood. This funnily shaped dress (Trapeze dress) has been on my 'To make List' for quite some time. It is actually my second attempt at making it & even thougth it turned out shorter than I had expected, i still kind of like it. I used Polo Jersey Fabric that I bought at Coban Kurzwaren & Schneidereibedarf, here in Hamburg which is what I also used to make the lower part of this dress, which I featured previously on this Blogpost. TheFabric is so soft & comfortable, & warm too. My plan of pairing it with short boots changed when I realised how cold it was when leaving the house. So, I opted for Thermo Leggings for extra warmth & these Timberland-inspired boots that I bought almost 3 years ago. They used to be a lighter brown in colour but kept on getting dirty too quick so I applied a shoe polish which was a darker tone of brown & voila, I love them. For Accessories I decided to brighten up the almost 'All black Outfit' with an Ankara loop scarf which is super warm but also added colour & character to the outfit. My everyday watch & an 'All saints bangle' which was a gift from my Mum finished up the look.

Wish you a lovely week.
