Food and Style with an African Twist

Black Citrus

Hello all, hope your weekend has been good.  Firstly, I want to thank you all for your lovely thoughts and comments on my post last week.  

Its true that every woman/girl should own a black dress simply because they can be dressed up or down without much fuss.  I  bought this number a while back on sale for half price and I still can't believe my luck. I love the leather piping on the pockets and neck which gives it that oh so tiny touch of oomph.  Today I have styled it with my lemon colored jacket and orange pumps.  Let me know if you like it in the comments box below and if you don't how you would have styled it.  

Thank you so much for visiting and reading my blog.  xoxo.
