Ankara Streets African Print Mini Dress

Once again Ankara Streets delivered on this African Print Mini Dress. The dress is a modification of the Z’Lia Wrap Dress. I knew the Barbados weather would be hot so I asked for shortened sleeves and hemline.

ankara-mini-dressThe dress features a brown, yellow and hot pink print. The wrap dress adjusts to fit any bustline and cinches in the waist. The dress features a skater skirt and I loved showing off my long legs in the mini length. I kept things minimal and paired the outfit with gold sandals.

The DC weather has been really crazy where one day it’s 78 degree and the following day it’s 35 degree days. Looking back at these photos I miss that tropical weather AND my tan!!
