This Ankara Color Block Skirt Hides My Mom-Gut Perfectly

I'm going to let you in on a little secret.... Styling this skirt almost took me out.  I can not tell you why I stressed so much trying to come up with how to wear this skirt.  And this is the second look, I didn't like the first look at all.  Maybe one day I'll share.

One thing I love about this skirt is the print and the colors.  It's such a fun skirt and I'm sure the next time I wear it I won't be so stressed about styling it.  But the best part about this skirt is that it hides my mommy tummy so well.  It means so much to not have to worry about sucking my gut in when I don't have to... #winning!

When you get a chance, you really need to check out all the different style options SGTC Clothing offers.

Stepping Out Of My Comfort Zone With This Ankara Wrap Shirt

One trend that I really like, but rarely wear is the off the shoulder trend (OTS).  You might even shake your head at the craziest reason why... I feel all saggy when I don't have on a strapped bra.  I know, crazy right?  And before you ask, yes I own a good strapless bra, I just feel more secure with the straps. 

Opting to wearing this Ankara wrap shirt off the shoulders was a stretch for me and slightly out of my comfort zone.  But before I get into why I decided to step out of my comfort zone, let's take a moment to reveal in how amazing this top is?  First of all Ankara (or African print) is gorgeous in and of itself.  The array of different colors, patterns and styles is just so beautiful.  I can't wait to wear this top again.

Now back to me stepping out of my comfort zone.  Wearing this top is a bit out of my style realm.  Which is why I was a little over whelmed when I took it out of it package.  The vibrant colors and print, along with these voluminous sleeves had me like woah!  I thought how the heck am I going to style this.  Once I tried it on and played with a few different style options (all while my husband cracked jokes) surprisingly I actually loved how it looked draped off the shoulder.  

Initially I wanted to dress up this top with either a cute skirt or pants, but that's expected.  So I went with these distressed white jeans and Adidas sneakers.  My little neon yellow clutch was the perfect pop of color (not that this look needed a pop of color).  Adding the clutch was like the cherry on top.  Over all, I'm pleased with how this look came together.  Styling this top from IG acct, Style Goes To Church was fun and I can't wait to wear it again.

You should definitely check SGTC out on Instagram.  And you're in luck, they actually just released 13 new designs, but don't take too long the designs are limited.
