Wear {8} // Little Black Tank

While back in the U.S. I received an awesome Many Waters necklace from sweet Megan at New Eve Jewelry. I was so excited about it, because I have been wanting to start adding meaningful accessories to my capsule wardrobe and this necklace is so versatile! You can check out some more styling I did with it here.

So of course I brought this necklace back with me to Uganda, and of course I have been wearing it…when I’m not visiting the Smile Africa babies home where it will very quickly get ripped off my neck and chewed on!

I also picked up a four dollar, black tank at WalMart. I know…it’s not going to be a piece that lasts forever, but for now, it is doing the job! Add with a maxi skirt that I made from authentic African fabric, and I have a few new outfits to put together!

This first outfit was one I put together for a casual Valentine’s date. Black and white with some pops of red…red lips and nails that is!

This next outfit pairs the black tank with my handmade African skirt. The skirt fabric is African wax fabric. It was an easy maxi dress to make and even has pockets…my favorite! Make your own maxi skirt following these easy instructions!

And since it’s always Summer in Uganda, this black tank is going to get A LOT of wear!
