Lookbook: When in Hout Bay

When in Hout Bay, one must go to Mariners for lunch, stroll along the windy beach and take photos! On my second day in Cape Town we went to have lunch at Mariners, always a great place to go for fresh seafood, whether you’re in a hurry and only have 30min or you have the whole day to spend there. Of course I couldn’t miss an opportunity to take some photos! That day was particularly windy, I never really thought that eating a mouth full of hair was an option. 🙂 Hope you enjoy the photos anyway!

Lookbook: Modern Gypsy

Happy Monday my loves! Hope everyone had a great weekend! I personally had quite a stressful and exciting week last week, which I will address later on my blog in another blog post.

I have a pretty busy February ahead, I figured that I should give you all a heads up just in case I go quiet again. I’m currently in Durban to see my parents and for the first time in 2 years I’ll be spending 2 whole, consecutive weeks with my family! I’m extremely excited about that because if you’ve been following my blog and social media for some time, you will know that I only take leave if and when I plan an overseas trip. Then on Valentines Day I’ll be flying over to Cape Town to meet E where he has a surprise planned for us that day. 😀 Yes I am literally saying “eeeeeeeeeeeeeek” as I type this and I have goosebumps all over because last year for Valentines Day, I remember saying that I wished that I could fly to Cape Town for that day and eat at my favourite restaurant – Nobu. This is a dream come true this year and I shall update everyone when it comes. Then I’ll be staying in Cape Town till 23rd Feb, then I’ll be making my way back home, to JHB.

During that time I’m away I’ll try squeeze in as many posts as I can and just give everyone a quick update on what I’m up to. Which reminds me, I’m still to do a quick post on the past weekend in Cape Town. We didn’t take the camera, which is a bummer but I still managed to capture some photos with my phone (oh well!).

I’m absolutely in love with this sheer, lacey, floral kaftan cross cardi… It’s so feminine and versatile. Hope you enjoy the photos!

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!
