High Waisted Ankara Skirt #take2

Hey beautiful people, 
So this outfit here was simply me re-styling one of my favourite ankara skirts, which my seamstress made for me in Ghana on my last trip. 
The print is so fun and vibrant, so I decided to pair it with this taupe and pastel blue, collared, open back, sleeveless shirt. I've been wanting to style this shirt for about a year now, but everytime I picked it up and tried to pair it with something, I'd give up! I didn't like how it looked with pants, but it was too short to wear as a shirt dress. 
But it worked perfectly with this skirt, because once I tucked it in,  it hid all the excess fabric of the shirt underneath the skirt. I added this thick black belt with the gold hardware in the middle to break up the two pieces and also cinch in my waist, and I paired it up with these open toe taupe and snakeskin heels. For my accessories I decided on my gold collar necklace, my HTW beads and a small black purse. MACs 'Girl About Town' added the perfect pop of color on my lips!
