Bows and Dots

So the cold has taken over Cape Town. I am writing this blog post while wearing a fleece gown and leggings. You know us Capetonians can’t deal with the cold!

I wore this outfit on one of our warmer days and I really hope there will be days like that before Winter really comes. I am such a sucker for a pretty dress! I bought this one in Bangkok. I love the cute print, dropped waist and the relaxed fit.

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! Keep warm!

Shifting

This is one of my more “sophisticated” work outfits and it’s just a R100 Mr Price dress and a comfy pair of heels. I received so many compliments when I wore this outfit and I felt obliged to tell everyone that the dress costed R100, but I didn’t :) Shift dresses are so easy to wear. I especially love this one because of the loose fit and the sheer stripe detail. If you are ever at a loss for what to wear to work, then do yourself a favour and buy yourself a pretty dress from Mr Price. You’ll feel good in it and it won’t cripple your bank account.

The Grid

I hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was lovely. The weather was beautiful and I recovered nicely from feeling sick.

I get so many compliments about this good old China Town dress. I love the grid print and you may have noticed that I have an obsession with black and white. I should probably make an effort to wear some colour in the upcoming weeks just to mix it up a bit. Especially since it’s going to become colder. Wearing colour on colder days tends to cheer me up.

I hope Monday treats you well!

Splatter

I am actually writing this blog post at an ungodly hour as I wait on something work related! I never write in the early hours of the morning so forgive me if my writing isn’t as it always is. I am going to go straight to business and discuss my outfit. I mentioned before that I am quite a big fan of the paint splatter print trend so naturally I love this Mr Price skirt. In all honesty I actually wear this skirt once every two weeks which is quite regularly for me. The print adds such a lovely quirky edge to the skirt so it is right up my alley. I’ve paired the skirt with a Peter Pan collar top which I think makes the outfit very feminine. Oh and let me talk about the shoes! I got it at a Country Road sale and we all know how exciting it is when you find something you like in your size at a Country Road sale. These shoes are super comfy and I love the wooden heel and the soft leather. Thanks heavens for Country Road Sales!

Have a great weekend people and thanks for reading!
