Traditional ‘Fulani’ Outfit

Yay for Friday!!!! Haha. Getting excited as if Monday is not right around the corner (downer).

If you haven’t noticed. I love exploring and incorporating different cultures into my outfit. Today, I’m actually honoring part of my heritage. My mom’s side of the family is from the Northern part of Nigeria. The Fulani tribe.

Bought this outfit in 2009 when Greg and I visited Nigeria with the kids. Sometimes, I wear them separately. Top with jeans, and the wrap with a button up shirt or crop tee.

I have on two different lengths/size beads, but somehow, the longer and smaller beaded necklace is tucked under my tank. Wishing you a very restful weekend. Enjoy.. xo

    A whole new reason for me to stare at and obsess over you..(not in that scary stalker way -_-) I found out my mothers lineage is fulani, same, from Northern Nigeria and I’m obsessed with that. You look SO Fulani and I just think they are the most gorgeous women <3<3 I’m looking at you hoping to see myself sis =) <3
