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

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). 🙂 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 New (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! 🙂

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!

Lookbook: Casual Stripes

Hi everyone! Boy am I happy to be back in Joburg, the week that we were in Durban, the weather was so miserable. The only hot day was on Xmas itself and it was gloomy and grey for the rest of the time we were there. Our packed beach towels and swimming gear was not used at all. I absolutely love the weather here in Joburg, it’s hot during the day and as the sun descends, we get an hour or so of thunderstorms and showers. Not only is there a perfect balance but it’s so beautiful during sunset when there are thick, fluffy clouds rolling in.

I paired up something casual for this look post, you know I like a mix between the dressed up and the dressed down looks. I bought this pair of Converse sneakers from New York and I haven’t actually worn it yet. It may look black in the pictures but it’s in fact dark grey, which is pretty unusual I thought. People say that horizontal stripes are not flattering but I absolutely love them! I think they’re great because stripes is something you can wear up and down, especially the top I’m wearing from H&M with the gold button details on the sleeves and also the shoulders. I also really love the straight neckline, which means that other parts of your outfit and details gets more attention rather than just the neckline. 🙂

Hope you enjoy this look!
