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?

Free Spirited

Free Spirited

I’m so into boho at the moment, it’s become my new favourite way of dressing. Boho is all about pretty florals, lace accents, distressed denim, layers of jewellery, pom poms, beautiful blues/ turquoise, tassels and a big ol’ summer hat. All you need is bronzed skin, nude sandals, a pair of Ray-Ban’s and the beach! I found T-H-E absolute cutest little boho inspired blouse that I picked up for a song at the Old Khaki sale! It’s the perfect little bohemian summer top that can still be worn in Autumn – if you’re like me and thinking about next season already. It’s got just the right amount of lace and a gorgeous print, and it’s lose and comfy to wear all day. Plus its blue, so I just couldn’t resist it! I usually wear a size 8 at Old Khaki, but found that the 8 in this style was a bit too big, so I got a size down to a 6 and it’s a perfect fit! Just something to keep in mind if you decide to shop this gorgeous top online. You know Old Khaki offers free delivery to anywhere in South Africa via their online shop?! You can still get your hands on the Emilly…

Nomad {outfit post}

Nomad {outfit post}

What do you guys think of the whole nomadic style? I’m kinda digging it. It has such a free spirited boho feel that makes me want to embrace it. When I saw this, “Coatigan” the other day at Edgars, I immediately fell in love with it. It reminds me of a real hippie/ surfer girl style (even though I’m no longer a Durban girl, and besides I never surfed – although I did try a few times and was just no good) But anyway! I loved it! The hoodie and fringe detail really appealed to me, as did the intricate knit. I thought it would make a great addition to my wardrobe, since I could wear it in winter, but ultimately, my thoughts when buying it, was with the idea of wearing it in the Spring. Think denim cut off shorts, a little white tee and brown combat boots! But Spring feels like a million miles away, I thought I’d try out a different style for winter this weekend… Excluding the shoes and sunnies, I found all the pieces for this outfit at Edgars. I really enjoy shopping there these days – their selection is so fab. They carry great in-house pieces (like my coatigan) as well as a…

Shady Business; A Day With Luxottica Checking Out The Sunglasses

Shady Business; A Day With Luxottica Checking Out The Sunglasses

A few days ago I was invited to attend the Luxottica Days showcase at the Oysterbox Hotel in Durban. A day filled with sunglasses and a chance for me to check out some of the fabulous range of sunglasses on offer this season. The event is like one big, fat, indulgent sunglass party! Picture being surrounded by beautiful shades and you get to try-on any and every SINGLE pair your heart desires! I also got a first look at the new to South Africa Giorgio Armani sunglasses; Giorgio and Emporio Armani, which I’ll tell you more about soon, so keep an eye on StyleScoop. Now, if you know me at all (or read my blog), you’ll know that “I enjoy the little things in life… Shoes, Handbags and (instead of Jewelry) Sunglasses!” A girl can never have too many pairs of fabulous shades. Here’s a little peek at some of the stylish shades that caught my eye. Please comment below and let me know what your favourite pair is! I’d love to hear your opinions! Versace Aviators! These are so bling-bling-boom-boom! I feel like a star in these shades! As it is, I live in my Ray-Ban Classic Aviators or my Ray-Ban Semi-Rimless Aviators.…

Products That Rocked 2012! Ray-Ban Aviators

Products That Rocked 2012! Ray-Ban Aviators

The sunglass style that will never go out of style! This year, I’ve practically lived in my Ray-Ban Aviator sunglasses! They are both so easy to wear and match every kind of style and outfit. I change between these two styles; the classic Metal Frame Aviators, which I took with me on my trip Greece/ Dubai, and then my most recent pair, the Semi-Rimless Aviators. I love both of them equally, and although they are both “aviators”, they look completely different! One of the things I have really enjoyed with my Aviators besides having top quality lenses to protect my eyes, is that Ray-Ban aviators come with super small, flat and compact cases, which fit so easily into handbags or the centre console in your car etc! The Metal Frame Aviators with gold frames and brown lenses were my first pair of Ray-Ban Aviators. These are very retro – and I love the look. I almost feel like Michael Knight from Knight Rider – remember that show? Or Tom Cruise in Top Gun… YUM! In case you’d like to try on this style, just ask for the code 3025 001/51 55014. I had to try on a few pairs to find a style…

Autumn in the Middle of Spring!

Autumn in the Middle of Spring!

I am in love with this very versatile drop waist dress from Levi’s. It’s the perfect little summer dress that can be worn in so, so many ways! I wanted to wear mine with some cute summer wedges, but alas, the weather has not been playing nice, and so I opted for an Autumn look in the middle of summer. It’s also been raining non stop in Durban lately, so I thought I’d pair it with my rain boots. I love the “leathery” fabric of this dress and the zip down the front, but my favourite part has got to be the pockets. I love pockets! Dress: Levis. Peasant Top: Truworths (from a million years ago), Sunglasses: Ray-Ban Semi-Rimless Aviators, Boots: Hunter

To me, love me! To celebrate 75 years of awesomeness, Ray-Ban have just released their brand new Folding Aviator Ultra sunnies. What makes these sunnies so special? Firstly, these feature a 22-carat white or yellow gold plated frame, water repellent P3 Plus gradient polar lenses, hand stiched leather temples and three lens colour options in either crystal green, blue or brown. The RB 3479 KQ001 N5 model features 22-carat yellow gold frames with green polar lenses.

A little more on the P3 Lenses just to show you Ray-Ban’s dedication to not only maintaining the cutting-edge, technical DNA of the brand, but also it’s dedication to research and keeping up with the latest technological developments. The polarizing filter, color enhancement, anti-reflective coating and the water-repellent system are extraordinary features that are combined to deliver excellence to each lens.
