HOW TO STYLE A MIDI-SKIRT: YANES x SARAH










Photography by Peter Audu

Hey people, I hope this new month is off to a great start for you all.
Today I'm thrilled to be collaborating with my good friend and fellow fashion blogger Yanes of Yanikeur. The great thing about travelling is being able to meet people from different cultures and backgrounds. My girl Yanes is representing the Democratic Republic of Congo so shout-out to all my Congolese and French ladies out there.

"As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend." 
(Proverbs 27:17 NKJV)

Now I don't know about you but in the past the word midi-skirt made me think only of flared skirts but today's collaboration just goes to show how wrong I was. Midi-skirts can be taken from work to play and to church depending on the styling and this pair was previously styled here. We both went with a monochromatic theme but I opted for a pop of pink in my purse and my girl incorporated a pop of print in her statement shoes, all great ways to spice up an outfit. I decided to step out of my comfort zone by mixing prints, I find that stripes are easier to work with. And look who was able to fit her big head into a hat lol. Anyways as I mentioned in this post I recently got this hat and have been rocking it everywhere so be warned. While my outfit is perfect for church as usual, with the addition of a blazer Yanes's look would be perfect for work. 

Skirt: Vintage || Hat, Purse, Top: Thailand || Shoes: Zara
