The autumn chill has about settled in, though I do feel like the seasons are still having a bit of a tug of war, cause I wake up to dreary foggy mornings, which will have cleared by the time I get to the office, it feels pretty warm out when I pop out the office at lunch time, but I soon realize “nope, not really” cause of the cold chilled breeze, and when I head home, it’s a nice warm evening like we’re still stuck in the summer of 2014. Honestly, it’s enough to drive one fashionably insane!
I styled up my favorite over-sized vintage denim shirt into two of my most loved color themes for this winter, denim blue hues and military green neutrals; all worn with my most loved pair of high-waist mom jeans from H&M. I’m a lover of knitwear, its easy to wear, can be dressed up or down and isn’t too warm, perfect for transitional seasons like now or for added warmth when its really cold; so naturally both looks had knitwear pieces.
The first look I feel is more casual, with a slightly longer length navy cardigan, worn over a scoop neck, long sleeved t-shirt and worn with trainers. The ink blue leather biker jacket thrown over the shoulders is really more for “just incase mother nature wants to get nasty” lol ..perfect for a blue monday!
The second look would be considered more smart casual, cause of the olive buttoned up shirt and high heeled tonal olive boots worn with it. I enjoyed playing with different lengths here, the cropped crew knitwear against the longer shirt and even longer tweed coat length. click through to instagram HERE to get a better look of the ensemble.
Basically, after being stuck over dressed (in the not so fabulous way lol) and sweating up a storm in unexpected heat or freezing in a super air-conditioned space for what felt like ages a couple of times, I think I’m getting the hang of this art of layering.. so Cape Town can hit me with just about everything it’s got, at any time of the day and I’m sure I will be ready with a comfy cardi to take on or a jacket to jump out of.
