Summer souvenirs from Senegal…

I was in Senegal during the winter early this year. While there enjoying sun, I thought about what I need for the summer and other fashion I can barely find in Europe.

Fortunately, with me, I had a good friend who was willing to take me around. Here is what I bought….

African harem

I managed to buy #Africanharem. It is really beautiful, comfortable, tailor made with #African fabric and easily wearable and affordable. I don’t remember the exact cost but it is somewhere between $20 to $30

Summer hat and clutch bag

Summer is never summer with a hat. I am not a sunglass kind of person, even though I try each and every summer to buy one. A hat is just what I need for my summer holidays. This one though was a gift from a special person 🙂 so I don’t know the prices

 

I know you are wondering about the clutch beside the hat. I bought it for attending cocktail party, official and casual events. This can be worn however you like as long as you match well with the right attire. I have worn it with one colour dress from white, black etc giving it a lively look

Earrings

It will not be a shopping without Africa earrings so here you go

Blazer

Official wear? I bought a blazer that I have managed to wear to the office several time. Attend business meetings and appointments. It fits perfectly well… and is quite trendy and comfortable yet tailor made and affordable

Paintings

Finally, I was gifted this two paintings for our apartment. I really like them especially when I come back from work, staring at them gives me so much energy. This one is made from a mix of small pieces of African fabric brought together to display the different patterns forming this wonderful paint

The second one is still a mystery to me. Trying to understand what it means. I will let you figure out that one. Share your thought in the comment section 🙂

Which souvenir did you like… which one would you have bought. Leave your comments below. Until next time… see you my friends or should I say “Ba beneen Mangi dem” which means goodbye in Wolof. It is one of the highly spoken language in Senegal
