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!

Trench Town

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.

Army Green Military Trench

Army Green Military Trench

I have a new obsession with trenches lately! They are such easy pieces that you can just throw on to instantly upgrade your look and make it more polished. Right now I’m loving this Lightweight, Green Epaulette Coat from SheIn – my new fave online shopping destination. As we say goodbye (and good riddance) to winter and hello to Spring, this trench will probably become my new BFF! I can picture a cute summer look with a little white tee, denim cut offs and gladiator sandals or even Converse… Hmmm! Yesterday, in Jozi we got to experience a little taste of warmer weather, so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to wear this coat to an exciting fragrance launch (more on that soon). My look started with a hat, but quickly changed thanks to the wind deciding it was a no go (hence all the face touching in my pics). I am glad though, that I got at least one shot with the hat, because I love how it makes this look more wintery. I also really love the flap detail at the back of the coat, and the subtle hint of epaulettes on the shoulder which give it that military feel. Oh, it’s also got built in shoulder pads, which are perfecto…

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…
