A moment for this skirt

So I return from my inexcusable impromptu blog break as if I even needed one in the first place! Once again my priorities got skewed and I become a bit overwhelmed with everything that I had on my plate. I made a to-do list and moved on and now I am back!

I thought I’d express my love for this skirt once again hence the blog title. It was such a good buy and I always feel special when I wear it. The fit and colours brighten up any outfit. The quality also feels excellent for a skirt under R200. I really hope that Anisa Mpungwe does a third collaboration with Mr Price so I can buy more of her designs at affordable prices. Maybe I’ll spoil myself and actually get something from her Loin Clothes and Ashes label one day. Fingers crossed.

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!
