Double Trouble

Eeeek! I haven’t blogged in over a month! As cliche as it sounds, I felt like something was missing when I was not blogging. I decided to take some time to think about life and about my blog. Although I am not done thinking about it yet, the conclusion is that I want and need to make some changes in my life and blog. So, watch this space!

These pics were taken a couple of weeks ago next to the Route 44 Market in Stellenbosch. How beautiful is the view?! It’s no secret that I am a market addict. My favourite thing to do is to go to a market. A comfy outfit is essential of course. I decided to try my hand at double denim. I definitely prefer wearing lighter and darker shades of denim together. One shade would look too much like a jumpsuit.

In other news, my best friend Janine and I leave for Thailand in one week! I am so excited to go back and even more excited to travel with Janine. It is something that is on my bucket list and I really thought it would never happen. Needless to say, this blog is going to be bit quiet while I am abroad. I do plan to update my Instagram, Twitter and Facebook though.

4th Street Party

I attended the 4th Street Party last week with the lovely Raylene of Scarlet Aura. I was just dying to meet Raylene because we have so much in common. We are both fashion bloggers, developers and we share a birthday. She really was as great as I thought she’d be!

The theme of the event was the Fifties and I was so excited because it is by far my favourite fashion era. When I chose my outfit I found that so many of my clothing matched the theme. I opted for a polka dot midi skirt, pastel blouse, socks with bow details, a vintage bag and court shoes.

This party was one of my favourite events ever. The decor was superb! Think pink and white everywhere, a gourmet slider  station, candy floss machine, pink candy galore, slow motion photo booth and much more.  To top that off there was an awesome performance by Shoowop Shop lead by Tamara Dey.

One of my favourite things about the night is how the attendees dressed to the theme. I snapped some pics of some serious stylish strangers. Of course I could not resist. There were midi skirts, bandanas, cute socks and pink galore.

“What is 4th street” I hear you asking. It is a sparkled sweet wine available in white, red and rosé. We were given a bottle of each when we left and I tried all three. Don’t judge me for drinking them so fast! My favourite is definitely the white wine. I am going through a bit of a white wine phase though. Again, please don’t judge me!

My pics cannot do the event justice. I wish I could have taken more but I was too busy having a good time :)

Ornithology

I must admit I am really enjoying putting outfits together lately. I think this feeling comes when you are actually happy with the clothes you own at the time. This seldom happens for me. I am always looking for a certain item or needing this or that. I guess this is my ongoing love affair with fashion/personal style. I ain’t complaining. In other news, I really love this blouse I bought from Romwe.com. I am a sucker for unique and quirky prints and I just love the bird detail.

Have a great week people!

Simplicity

I tend to go through phases when it comes to the way I dress. Right now I am in a simplistic phase. I am craving basic outfits without too many frills and spills. This is undoubtedly because of the weather. I basically need to be warm and I need to be able to quickly run to shelter when it’s starts raining! Nothing much more too it.

This outfit is very basic featuring my beloved coat from Cotton On. It is the only coat that I bought this Winter as I was very selective when it came to buying outerwear this season. The coat is made of fabric that is soft to the touch and also feels good on the skin :)

Are you going through any fashion phases at the moment?
