Ankara

Skirt: TopShop (more printed skirts here & here).
Crop Top: American Apparel.
Sandals: Saint Laurent (available in black here).

I found this ankara print inspired skirt languishing on the sale rack in Topshop. I love this type of print.  I even have ankara print cushions in my living room :)

This is my hair in it's natural state. I have a keratin treatment a couple of times a year and it's almost washed out completely now.

  6. Beautiful, Ashley! One of my fav outfits!!
    I was searching for a nice crop top- think I'm going to buy this one, too.

    One question: did you do the CHI keratin straightening? Does it really wash out? I always thought it must grow out.. Thinking about straightening my hair for so long now. Perhaps I should try it out.

    Greetings from Germany! <3
