Lookbook: The Casual Work Shirt

Lookbook: The Casual Work Shirt

Hi my loves! Hope everyone had a great weekend! I must apologise for dropping off the face of the Earth last week, I was extremely busy with admin (getting admitted and all that stuff) plus there was major mess-ups in the process so that’s where it left me. I also went away for the weekend, I conveniently made my normal weekend into a long weekend, I took Friday and Monday off. It was a friend’s wedding so we flew to Cape Town and spent time both in Cape Town and also Hermanus, which is where the wedding actually took place.

I took these pictures last week but never had time to actually post it up. If you remember, my last post was dressing the same shirt up and turning it into a work or corporate shirt. This time, I wanted to show you just how versatile this shirt can really be, I’m wearing it here with torn jeans and sneakers, super casual!

Lookbook: A Fishmonger’s Tale

Hello my loves! Hope everyone is having a great week so far! It’s half way through the week already, which means we have 2 more days and then it’s Friday! Can you believe that it’s halfway through the month already? I was thinking to myself the other day that we’re starting a new year all the way from the beginning and now it’s half way through the first month already! Time really does fly and I’ve noticed that especially the first half of the year goes by really quickly for me partly because we have the new year celebration then getting used to writing 2015 instead of 2014, then it’s valentines day, then it’s my birthday month, then my mom’s birthday in April and so on.

Now that I’ve blabbed enough about the year (I know right), I took these pictures a while back in December last year when we went to have lunch at the Fishmonger in Illovo the one Saturday afternoon. I love Joburg in summer because of how beautiful the storms are in the afternoons and the clouds are just so mesmerising. Of course my casual attire couldn’t be more fit for the occasion, just a casual and lazy lunch over the weekend.

Lookbook: A Day At the Office

Lookbook: A day at the office

Hello lovelies! Since this week is the official week where most people return to work, I thought it would only be fit to do a post relating to work (if you are working that is). πŸ™‚ Sometimes office wear can be rather boring or monotonous because you care less and you end up sticking to the greys, blacks and whites, I’m personally guilty of that! A day at the office doesn’t always have to be boring grey, black and white though, I’ve put together an outfit appropriate for work or a formal dinner. I’ve incorporated the boring 3/4 suit pants, cream blouse and nude peep toes and I made it a little more glam with some accessories that I picked up from Forever NewΒ (you can’t go wrong there). Being in legal, people tend to be more conservative in office wear because we have to look the part and look “professional” (whatever that means really). If you’re not quite ready to step out your comfort zone or it’s your first day of work and you’re looking for some inspiration then look no further! πŸ™‚

I absolutely love this cream blouse that I got from H&M in Hong Kong, I love that it’s so comfortable and loose, which means I can pair it up in so many ways! Look out for a casual outfit with the same blouse!
