4 Classic Winter Boot Styles Every Woman Should Own

4 Classic Winter Boot Styles Every Woman Should Own

I feel like it’s been ages since I spoke about shoes! I mean really, really spoke about shoes! A whole post dedicated to my favourite accessory on earth! I’ll admit my shoe-wearing days have become very casual of late, but that doesn’t mean I don’t still love a good pair! With winter fast approaching, it’s time to start thinking about what goes on your feet. So I’ve put together my list of 4 styles of winter boots every woman should own to help you make smart decisions when investing in a new pair this year.

Hey November

Hey November

Whoa! November is already in full swing, which means, only one month till the end of the year! Can you believe it? I won’t lie though, I’m excited to bring on the holidays and I am already counting down the days. Until then, I have a wish list full of summer ready lusts on my radar…

Jacarandas in Cullinan

Jacarandas in Cullinan

Going to see the Jacarandas in full bloom in Cullinan has been something I’ve wanted to do for ages. Last year, we attempted to go and see them, but I think we might have been a bit too late as they had already finished blooming in November. This year though, I wasn’t about to let them get away from me.

Winter Classics

Winter Classics

My love for trenches continues! A trench is such a classic piece. It works all year round, no matter the season. I love the structured, almost military silhouette of this one I bought at ZARA recently. It always makes me feel polished and pulled together. My Perfect winter outfit! And what’s winter without a Starbucks Vanilla Bean Macchiato?! I swear, every time I’m at Mall of Africa, I just can’t resist my little Starbucks fix! I’m obsessed!

Lightweight Trench – ootd

Lightweight Trench – ootd

I’m all for timeless pieces; a nude, double breasted trench, denim shirts, Hunter Boots, beautifully structured handbags and stylish sunglasses. And this is one of my favourite ways to put the whole look together! This lightweight apricot trench will be such a staple for Spring, but I couldn’t wait to wear it now! I usually wear an 8/small, but decided go get this one in a Medium, since I knew that I would be wearing it over something. I actually wish I had gone for the Large, just to give my arms more space when I wear it with something like my denim shirt. But nonetheless, I love it! I love how many different style options this lightweight trench offers, and although it’s not as thick or wintery as a classic trench, it’s still a great piece that offers the same, endless styling options. Like tying the belt at the back for example, which allows me to wear it open, but still ensuring that my outfit has a nice silhouette. Shop my Outfit Lightweight Trench Coat from Sheinside. It’s on SALE NOW 🙂 Levis Western Shirt – similar style here GAP Skinny Jeans Tumi Sinclair Stella Handbag – beige one here Hunter Boots. How cool are these? Lucky…

The Cold is Coming #OOTD

The Cold is Coming #OOTD

Slowly but surely, winter is creeping up on us, and I’m excited for a change of clothing scenery! This weekend, when the temperature dropped (and the rain came out to play), I thought it was the perfect opportunity to wear my new Puffer jacket. I’d been looking for a black, coat style puffer jacket for ages. So when I spotted this beaut at Old Khaki, I just had to have it! I love the gold hardware (zip and press buttons) and that the zip zips both ways. But I really love the detachable faux fur hoodie. Most puffer jackets can make you look, well, puffy, but this one has a clever little drawstring tie at the back that cinches in the waist to give you a nice, feminine silhouette. Such an investment piece that I know I’ll get tons of wear out of! Outfit Details Puffer Jacket – The Ivanah from Old Khaki (R1299) Rain Boots – Hunter Leggings – Cotton On There’s a couple more things from Old Khaki that I still have my eye on.

It’s Raining, It’s Pouring, The Gum Boots Are Calling

It’s Raining, It’s Pouring, The Gum Boots Are Calling

Man oh man am I glad to be living in Durban this winter! Here on the East Coast, it may rain all summer long (and then some), but I really feel for the poor folk in Cape Town with all that rain happening there at the moment! The one thing we can all be grateful for however, is the fact nowadays, we have stylish rain-ready footwear to keep us trendy while keeping us dry! To be perfectly honest, I think stylish rain boots, gum boots (or what ever you want to call them) are an absolute must in any wardrobe! And you don’t have to look like a farmer or construction worker either! There are so many stylish gum boots out there! My favourite gum boots are Hunters (of course) as well as the stylish new pairs from Crocs! I can’t decide which ones I love more, because I think both brands have such fab boots! My solution – get them both! I own both brands and love them all the same! I bought my Hunter boots last year when we had non stop rain and was given two pairs of Crocs Rainboots when I did the Rainboot shoot for Crocs a few months…

Make a Splash! We Heart the New CROCS Rain Boots & Wellies

Make a Splash! We Heart the New CROCS Rain Boots & Wellies

CROCS have just released their brand new rain-boots, perfect for our wet winters in South Africa. Together with some beautiful bloggers, we got to put these new boots to the test in a recent, and very wet, photo-shoot for Crocs in Cape Town! I’ll give you more details on that a little later (so keep an eye out for the pics), but for today, I wanted to share these amazing boots with you. The Wellie Rainboot is a traditional styled gum boot, that besides being super cool (it comes in six fabulous shades), is also extremely light! I tell you, when I tried these boots on, I was beyond impressed with how light they were! They are made from fully molded Croslite™ material that gives them this lightweight profile and they are completely waterproof. I own a pair of Hunter boots that I bought myself last year, and while they are fabulous and stylish, they are extremely heavy to wear, especially if you plan on staying in your shoes all day! The Wellie Raiboot, as mentioned comes in six beautiful colours, my favourite being the forrest navy, which is an army green and goes with everything. They are also available in mulberry (black), cranberry (red), espresso (brown), fuchsia/…
