HWYW | African Inspired + Co-Hosting!

Monday, August 22, 2016

Hey pandas :*
 I hope you're all well. You probably noticed that my posts are so spaced out, I'm kind of in a phase of I don't feel the passion as much as I used to. Before I would take breaks, and after I'll feel motivated, but this time despite the many breaks I took the flame doesn't grow back. Before, even if I wouldn't post I would at least keep up with the many bloggers I follow but even that I barely have time to do that. I seriously hoping that it's a phase because this is something I really enjoy doing and it would be a shame for it to stop like that. I have just decided to go with the flow and when I feel inspired I'll post so bare with me (the few of you who keep reading this blog).

Anyways, today we are back with a new How Would You Wear Challenge, this time the theme is African Inspired. This one was quite easy because when I think about Africa, first thing that comes to my mind is bold and colorful prints. And since I posted almost my favorite African prints on the blog already I decided to wear those pants I got made for work with a simple tube top and this necklace made out of cowries
J'espere que vous allez bien. Vous avez probablement remarque que mes articles sont plutot espaces, je suis dans une phase ou je ne sens plus vraiment la passion de blogguer autant qu'avant. Avant il me suffisait de faire une pause et apres la motivation revenait, mais cette fois malgre toutes les pauses que j'ai pu prendre la flamme ne se rallume pas. Avant meme quand je ne postais pas je continuais malgre tout de rester connectee avec les autres bloggeuses que je suis mais meme ca maintenant c'est un probleme parce que j'ai a peine le temps. J'espere vraiment que c'est juste une phase parce que c'est vraiment quelque chose que j'aime faire et ca serait dommage que ca s'arrete comme ca. J'ai decide de juste continuer avec le flow et poster que quand j'ai l'inspiration donc soyez indulgents (le peu d'entre vous qui lisez ce blog).

Bref, aujourd'hui on est de retour avec un nouveau How Would You Wear Challenge, cette fois-ci le theme est Inspire de L'Afrique. Celui la etait plutot facile parce que quand je pense a l'Afrique je pense aux imprimes colores et audacieux. Et vu que j'ai poste la majorite des imprimes sur le blog, j'ai decide de porter ce pantalon qu'on a fait faire pour travailler avec un simple top noir et ce collier de cauris.

Top: Forever 21
Pants: Custom Made
Shoes: Ross

  2. gorg outfit. the other ladies are just as pretty!

  3. Girl I do hope you get back your passion from blogging because you were one of the first few bloggers I started following when I joined the blogsphere. I love the trousers as well, I see we went with similar styling with a black top.

  4. thanks for co-hosting. Post whenever you feel inspired, don't ever feel like you have to.

  5. I love all the African styles from the HWYW challenge! I love your pants those are so gorgeous!

  6. Please do not stop girl! I am sure you have a new outfit every other day. Plus your looks are getting better. I would hate to see you leaving the scene. Is there something new you are pursuing?

  7. Looking good, mum and I love your pants.x

  8. Those pants are gorgeous, the print is so fun and unique! I think getting "blogger burnout" is a real thing and everyone gets it--I think it's good that you're giving yourself breaks and not worrying too much about it!

  9. Diane, these pants are fabulous! What a great outfit. I love bold and colorful prints and I always find myself swooning over African prints like this! I really love the elaborate dresses that I have seen in African prints as well. So, so stunning!

    Do stop by and link up with me On the Edge of the Week, if you are feeling up to it! I totally understand the lack of motivation that happens with blogging. And I think just going with the flow is the best way to deal with it! I still check in on your blog on a weekly basis and enjoy seeing what you post!
