The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are

Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair tank, ASOS Africa tribal maxi skirt, H&M sandals, Banana Republic weave belt, Marc Jacobs shoulder bag, Free People mirror sunglasses

Here is the full outfit to the post below. Maxi skirts are so easy to wear, I'm going to pack a bunch for my upcoming southeast Asia trip (leaving in 2 weeks eeee!) They allow for plenty of airflow to keep you cool yet ward off bugs (speaking of, my forearm is super swollen from a mutant mosquito bite I got at a BBQ this week and now I look like Popeye). The tribal print is what got me with this skirt from ASOS's Africa line. More amazingly, these pieces are made in Kenya by SOKO, a workshop dedicated to developing sustainable long term solutions to economic problems, and ASOS is donating a share of the proceeds to support this community.
