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!

Getting some exercise

Following on fro my last post, I’d to talk a bit about the exercise I have been doing. I didn’t mean to sound so mysterious. I planned to write a whole blog post about it but I decided against it because what I have been doing isn’t new or trendy. I’ve been doing mostly Zumba. I’ve done Zumba over the years since 2009 but I started against in August 2014 which is when I really fell in love with it. I think the difference came with having the right instructors and the fact that the Zumba music has improved so much since it started in 2009. When I did it previously I was skeptical on how much of a workout it actually is. But now with the right instructors it is a great workout which leaves me both invigorated and sweaty! It really is addictive and a good addiction at that. If you’re considering trying Zumba again or starting it then I encourage you to go ahead. I have been doing classes with three amazing instructors around Cape Town. Please email me if you would like to know more.

About the outfit…
This is another simple outfit I wore to work on a cooler day. I am crazy about this shirt which I think makes a rather plain outfit pop a bit.

Great Spirits

Hello lovelies! I must say that I have been in good spirits lately, actually great spirits :) I think it is partially due to exercising regularly. Yes me, I am exercising regularly! I have never been the athletic type. I have the shortest legs in the world and my hand-eye coordination was very lacking during my school years so I never did any sports. I have had some traumatic school netball memories but that is a story for another day. So, how does an athletically challenged person like me get to exercise almost everyday? It’s simple really. Motivate yourself and find exercise you enjoy doing. I am LOVING my exercise of choice. So much so that I am thinking of writing a blog post about it. If you love it, blog it right? How do you keep active? I would love to hear from you.

About the outfit…
So this is another work outfit. Lately work is the only place I looks decent for. Sometimes I dress up so much for work that people ask me what the occasion is. Come on, we don’t need an occasion to look and feel good. This Mr Price is one of my favourites. The loose fits make is super comfy to wear and the print is striking. I like it so much I might just wear it tomorrow.
