A Blazer and a Long Skirt

Its been a while since i've worn a long skirt. And yesterday during my lunch break, i went hunting (shopping) and found this lovely blue blazer. I wanted to wait to wear it, but it seemed like the perfect item to pair with my mom's old long skirt.
Long skirts have been all the rage in Nigerian fashions for as long as i can remember.The skirt styles range from simple a line styles to more elaborate styles ruffles on the bottom or winding around the skirt. However, the "fish tail" which is the style of the skirt i'm wearing, is pretty much the standard, no, its a classic.
Now for those of you wanting to attempt this outfit, i hope your skirt has a slit, otherwise you'll have to take baby steps like i've had to do today. I didn't realized how big my strides were until i tried to walk in my usual manner and almost tripped to my death. Seriously, these long skirts =baby steps.

This is what i wore:
Blazer (Thrifted)
Tank (Hanes)
Belt(Dots)
Skirt(Custom Made)
Shoes (Rugged)
Clutch (Thrifted)

Waaah, I want a Nigerian skirt!

This looks amaaazing on you! I love African fabrics. When I was in college, a friend who'd gone there on a missionary-type assignment (I think to Ghana) brought back a gorgeous dress of African fabric with intricate embroidery at the neckline. I wore it sooooo much it got torn, and I couldn't wear it anymore. It was just so beautiful!

You are very lucky to have such awesome cultural garments. Thanks for posting the photo!
