I have been very fascinated by some of the recent trends including clogs, over-the-knee socks, denim shirts and doc martens/lace-up boots. The reason for this fascination is that all of these trends were popular when I was a pre-teen to teen in the 90s. Seeing all these trends reinvent themselves today brings back very fond memories for me as a young girl starting to discover fashion.
Crochet is one of the trends that were very popular when I was younger. I remember owning and loving a white crochet top very much at the age of 10. They were extremely trendy in Cape Town at the time. Although I loved my crochet top I was undecided on whether I’d indulge in crochet this time around. After seeing some pictures of different bloggers wearing crochet in very different ways it got me thinking that there is a crochet style for everyone.
What do you think of the crochet trend and how would you wear it?

Winter is in full blast in Cape Town and I am finding myself longing for sunny skies, ice-cream and sandals. Coats, warm blankets and hot chocolate are great but sometimes I wish I could take a break from Winter and have just one Summer day. Of course, this is impossible so I did the next best thing which was look through the photos taken on a warm Summer’s day.
On a Sunday earlier this year I was looking for something new and different to do. After some Googling I decided to visit the Chart Farm in Wynberg. The Chart Farm has a rose garden where you can pick your own roses. There is also has a coffee shop where you can buy very big slices of cake! We basked in the sun at the coffee shop and then proceeded to pick some roses. It was really a lovely and relaxing day and I will definitely be going back once Winter has left us! I wore a nautical inspired dress with a pair flats. I am looking forward to wearing this dress again in Summer.
You can see from the photos that the views were excellent and picking your own roses are very cheap. Okay, now enough with the summer daydreams. Back to the blankets and hot chcolate I go!
