Lucky Country | Relaxed Weekend Outfit

Lucky Country | Relaxed Weekend Outfit

Classic, red plaid is one of those essential winter patterns that just keeps making a comeback! Actually, I don’t think it’s ever really been out of fashion, which makes me wonder why it’s taken me so long to embrace it in my wardrobe!? Nonetheless, I’m feeling the whole country girl vibe right now and it’s all thanks to this cute as a button -seriously just wait ’till you see the cute shirttail button detail at the back-  plaid shirt from Lucky Brand…

Midnight Blooms

Midnight Blooms

It may be winter – but I have Spring In My Step! I’ll admit, I’m not usually one to wear running shoes or sneakers outside of the gym – but these New Balance Midnight Blooms are so beautiful, so comfy and so darn cute, they are the perfect casual kicks that don’t look overly sporty! I actually love them! The Fresh Foam Zante soles makes them feel like I’m walking on air and let’s be honest – who could complain about looking down and seeing a gorgeous tropical print at their feet?

Trench Town

The autumn chill is upon us here in Jozi, and I for one am excited about welcoming the cold. I know, come July, I’ll be begging for summer, but right now, I’m romanticising about gloomy days, snuggle under a blanket with that cozy feeling.

Gucci Twilly

Gucci Twilly

A silk Twilly scarf has been at the top of my Birthday wish list (which is next month), but I think the hubs had enough of hearing about “twilly’s, twilly’s, twilly’s” every night for months, that he surprised me with this beautiful Gucci Silk Twill Neck Scarf for Valentines Day!

All about those stripes!

All about those stripes!

Give a girl the right stripes, and she can rock any look! Well, in my case at least! I could live in stripes and IMO you can never have too many striped options in your wardrobe. I just love how stripes add that street style look to what ever you’re wearing, plus they are such versatile pieces.

Wanderlust Traveler

Wanderlust Traveler

One of the things on my bucket list for 2016 (can you believe it’s nearly 2016!!!!) is to go on an open road trip, exploring our beautiful country. Sure, we’ve done “road trips” before, but they are usually to-and-from trips rather than an actual road trip; where you stop along the way, find yourself in some random, beautiful spot and discover what lies ahead. This gorgeous pair of hippie/ boho/ just plain awesome pants from Old Khaki give me that free spirited feeling, and they are super comfy making them perfect travel pants. I love everything about them. The colour, the wide leg, the fit, the pattern, the whole tribal/ bohemian contrast going on at the bottom – just everything! They are so versatile and can be worn with just about anything, but for this look, I wanted to keep the whole wanderlust/ boho/ free spirited theme going, so I paired them with a pretty, white boho blouse and some of my fave semi-precious accessories. Now that I have my traveling pants on, where to from here? Do you guys have any cool road trip suggestions? Places you’ve been to or heard about, let me know in the comments below…

Tommy Hilfiger Stripes – OOTD

Tommy Hilfiger Stripes – OOTD

I’m a total sucker for stripes! And nobody does stripes better than the king of stripes, Tommy Hilfiger. Red, blue and white are quintessentially Tommy and they are such beautiful shades for summer. This Tommy Hilfger satchel, is such a beaut! Those striped edges give it that extra special touch and it’s a great bag for day and night, weekend or office! And I know you’re all wondering about these shoes right… Aren’t they something to swoon over? They would have been perfect for this look, but I decided last minute to wear my wedges instead as I didn’t want to risk ruining them walking along the Durban promenade. But I mean…. They are gorgeous aren’t they? Thanks to Stuttafords, you can find your Tommy fix in store, or at the stand alone Tommy Hilfiger or Tommy Hilfiger Denim stores in Sandton City.

Black & White Floral Skirt – It’s Banana!

Black & White Floral Skirt – It’s Banana!

I’m excited to be bringing you my second look with Stuttafords today, and it’s a look that has me going Bananas! Lately, I’m all about skirts and Banana Republic has such amazing ones in beautiful black and white! It doesn’t get better than this! To be honest, I’ve never found high-low skirts to be very appealing. They are always too short in front and too long or again too short at the back and just look weird. But then, along came this Banana Republic skirt and I’m totally obsessed with it! It fits so beautifully and the cut is universally flattering. Plus it also has pockets – perfect for that street style look, and it can be worn in so many ways! I decided to stick with black and white for this lookbook, but this skirt would also look amaze with a pair of cute sandals and a crop top, or a pair of lace up boots (yes, you heard me) and a denim shirt tucked in for a bit of an edgier look that’s still fun and feminine. I’m wearing it with another great piece, also from Banana Republic – a gorgeous sheer black top that is once again,…

Late Afternoon (outfit of the day)

Late Afternoon (outfit of the day)

After that insane heatwave, I never thought I’d see green grass in Jozi. But after a week of beautiful, blissful rain, summer gardens are starting to look the part. I thought I’d take advantage of the beautiful weekend weather we had to show you gals my new, favourite piece of clothing. The gorgeous, Safar Ladies Suede Jacket from Old Khaki. I had been lusting after it since this post, and I had been locked onto the Old Khaki website, eagerly awaiting it’s arrival. The Safar waistcoat/jacket/ gilet (call it what you will) is one of my best purchases ever! It’s high quality, made from 100% suede, making it butter soft, luxurious and so insanely beautiful with it’s bohemian fringe detail. Outfit Details: Fringe Waistcoat – from Old Khaki {buy it online here} Maxi Skirt – (old) from Junkyard Angel Cream Vest – (old) from Woolworths Leather Wrap Belt – from Old Khaki {buy it online here} Gladiator Laceup Flats – Top Shop Cuff – from a little shop in Dullstroom

3 Looks Made in Italy {OOTD}

3 Looks Made in Italy {OOTD}

I discovered such a fab range the other day, exclusive to Stuttafords called Made In Italy.  It’s not a single brand, but rather a collection of beautifully designed clothes from various labels that are Made in Italy; among them the brands Rinascimento, SUR REALE and Studio IKO Italia. It was the SUR REALE faux suede jacket that caught my eye, with it’s mesmerising fringe detailing. Once I started looking at the different ranges, there were such pretty clothes, and so much fringe – did someone read my mind? I just want to twirl and twirl! Today, I’ll share three looks, with some on trend, gorgeous pieces all from the Made in Italy range at Stuttafords… Look #1 This look is one of my faves! I love the mix of texture in this look. A black faux leather dress paired with this beautiful, lightweight SUR REALE faux suede jacket is so me! I’m not much of a “dress” girl, but every now and then I find a cute dress with a bit of “edge” and then I want to be a dress girl. This faux leather dress by Rinascimento is super cute. I love the beautiful laser cut detailing and the fit is perfecto! Look #2 For something a little dressy, but more effortless and comfortable in this heat,…

Bohemian Garden Party with Lucozade Pink Lemonade

Bohemian Garden Party with Lucozade Pink Lemonade

If given the chance, what would you do over in pink and with energy? To launch their delicious new flavour, Pink Lemonade, Lucozade is running an awesome competition where you could win your very own “do-over”. All you have to do is purchase a 500ml bottle of Lucozade Pink Lemonade,  SMS the underliner code and include your “Do Over” 33585. If I had the chance to do something over, #DoItWithPink and #DoItWithEnergy, I would totally do over my bridal shower. Not that I didn’t love being surrounded by my best friends and family, but in terms of a totally awesome “themed” shower – I’d have loved a little 70’s style bohemian garden party! One that starts at noon and goes well into the night. For that, we’ll need lots of energy, so there will be plenty of Lucozade Pink Lemonade on offer. When I got married, there was no Pinterest, so giving your bridesmaids a mood board filled with ideas on what you’d like wasn’t really an option. Back then, it was just your standard bridal shower with pink feather boa’s, afternoon “tea” and for the ones who survived the fun and games – a girls night out at some club. The club part was never…
