Denim is a big part of most of our lives, whether you wear it on the regular or you’re really just wear a pair on casual Friday… it’s one of those verstile wardrobe staples you are more than happy to turn to. I’ve always thought of myself as more of a dresses kind of girl, but I feel I just hadn’t quite realised how quickly denim has moved in and taken up ground in my closet lol.. not that I’m complaining, the more the merrier. CLICK HERE to see recent posts of denim looks I shared. My most recent addition to my denim collection is a cropped blue straight-leg number from Country Road.. I like the length cause this way I can show off my winter boots nicely and have the right mix of stretch in them, for me to laze about reading comfortably. Something I don’t get to do as often as I would like, juggling work, blogging and general life things. Comfort is a big thing for me, I need what I wear to …

Off 2 Work & Off 2 Play

My job requires me to spend most of my time in the office, whether it’s responding to my endless emails inbetween catching up on admin, sitting in a number of meetings and now and then I’ll go out visiting stores, retail is a fast pace industry that keeps me on my toes. On most days, I keep it simple with a easy dress and heels, and now and then I’ll wear jeans & heels, paired with a cute top; I’m not much of a morning person so I like to keep things simple. With summer still going strong, especially for us living in the Cape (sun still sets around 8pm), I like to do the most and take advantage of the warmer, sometimes hotter evenings, with a visit to the beach or dinner plans. On days like this, I like to wear easy and versatile pieces that I can easily swap out. Here I wear an shirt-style off-the-shoulder top (who doesn’t have a couple of these tops from this passed summer? They were everywhere!), with …

GH x SA #collabo

Collaboration is Key. As you may have seen on my social platforms, I was recently in Accra, Ghana to attend the Ghana Fashion & Design Week. While there I linked up with travel blogger April of ‘Travel with April’ to properly experience the city from the perspective of a local and I also met up with style blogger Afua Rida for a style shoot. We went to Jamestown one afternoon, with looks by Ghanaian designer Mina Evans on hand and photographer Jeffrey Quaye ready to bring the best of SA and Ghana to life. I mixed in a Tart Clothing fringe skirt with a sexy satin top from Mina Evans for my look and Afua wore a dress also from Mina Evans to bring to life the beautiful black elements of designers from our respective home countries. I love how this trip opened me up to more African designers creating beautiful creations #madeinafrica ..and I hope that with more travels into other countries in Africans I will continue to be exposed to more designers and …

Stop Traffic

Ok so its not warming up quite as warm as I expected and as a result I’m living with one foot still stuck in my winter wardrobe and the rest of my body in spring. Though this means my visits to the beach can’t be a fixed feature on my calendar as yet, the silver lining has to be that I get to mix in and wear my favourite winter boots for a while longer without looking like an oddball. Tart clothing pieces always have me dancing around (even though I’m not so great at it – see here) and feeling giddy; but I’m not going to on about that again, don’t worry. I had a 70s vibe going with this look and feel I was channeling the gorgeous Zoe Kravitz with her dark long braid and mysteriousness – not sure I got the second bit right but I love how my dark braids flow into the fringing of the coat dress.  I have really been enjoying the colour black lately, and not only in …
