If you’re looking for new vibrant items to add to your closet consider these skirts from Francis + Benedict. A friend of mine from South Carolina sent me this gorgeous printed skirt, and I just had to tell you about it! It was handmade by women in Togo, Africa and the collection is available online.
I wore this outfit to church on Sunday where I was a lector. I volunteer a couple of times a month in my local parish as a cathechist (religious education teacher) and reader. I paired the skirt with a white turtleneck and black flats.
Francis and Benedict is a non profit organization that benefits women and children suffering in poverty in Togo, Africa. The garments are handmade; they’re a combination of American style with West African wax print textiles. Check out their collection here. I’m wearing the Jess Mini.

I love skirts with pockets which made it so much better. And though the mustard and purple hues make it perfect for fall, this piece can easily be worn year round.
