OFF WHITE OUTFIT

Kayla wanted to be in these photos by all means, so I let her.

Pairing this off white bodycon dress  was so easy. I opted for black and gold accessories because of the black and gold details embellished on the neck of the outfit. And that is the same reason I didn’t put on any necklace.

I wore it to a naming ceremony which was in the morning so I didn’t want to pair it with too many colours for the event. This is because the colour code for naming ceremony in Ghana here is white or white and blue.

Before my daughter’s naming ceremony, I remember asking my mom if I could wear any colour I want and she was like Nope!, it has to be white or white and blue. That’s the tradition. Although, I wish naming ceremony could be like birthday parties where you can choose your own colours or theme, it isn’t. Since it’s the tradition I can’t really do anything about it. Or may be I could but I don’t want to stray from my traditions.

    I didn´t know there was a dress code for the naming ceremony, I don´t think there is one for similar celebrations in Germany. You look stunning in white!

    Wonderful post, everything you said is why I’m reluctant to even consider it. I’m just not tech savvy enough & feel it would be too stressful.
    Although your site looks fab so it all worked out in the end but I just don’t think my nerves would be up to it!!

    Oh, what a little cutie next to you! You look great in the white dress, like a movie star really. I like everything. The only change I’d made is to maybe add some color with a red bag, or something?

    My eyes went straight to your daughter and she’s so cute. I think about everywhere when it comes to children’s ceremonies, white is the colour order. Hope you had fun

    You look so beautiful in this dress. I think it’s good to keep some traditions, like this one. It’s adorable how Kayla wanted to be in the photos too. She is just too adorable!
