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 …

Making Waves

Spring is in the air and with it comes a new wind of change. It’s been cold for far too long and it’s time to peel off the layers worn daily and reveal a new me, a me that is now revitalized and renewed and longing to soak up the sun, laze on beautiful beaches and enjoy hot summer nights out. I went out to enjoy the day by the beach, not quite in the way that I hoped though; as it wasn’t quite warm enough to be on the beach for me to enjoy the water, but was close enough. I feel the mix of blue hues in my stripes on stripes ensemble had me making my own waves as I went about my day. My accessory overload all from American Swiss, helped add a glisten to my look, which resembled that of the sun reflecting on water; and the little charms on my rings and bracelets adding some spring to my fingertips, with little sparkly butterflies and flowers. The silver accessories also made …
