outfit of the day. 14 august

Cape Town is known for the fact that you can experience all 4 seasons in one day. Today this has been absolutely true! This makes it basically impossible to wear something that will be perfect all day long. Since I wanted to blog about the top I made last weekend, I decided to push my luck. I faced this morning’s icy wind and the afternoon’s downpour in my new crop top. It was all worth it, though,  when we spent an hour at the Waterfront while the sun broke through the clouds. There is nothing quite like a crisp winter’s day…

I finally got a sewing machine! I am extremely excited as my hands have been itching to start making my own clothes. I spent last week slowly collecting everything that I would need to begin. New scissors, thread, pins, elastic, material…but no patterns. I know I should start by learning from existing patterns, but I have my own ideas. Yesterday I made my first top. and I am super proud of it. It’s a black, off the shoulder, ruffle top. The top gets tied at the top of my back, with most of the back still open. Today I wore this top…

must have item #1 – the camel coat

I have an absolute style crush on an item – a camel coat. The colour, the texture, its timelessness,  the fact that it adds an element of sophistication to any outfit while keeping a hint of casual flare (you know what I mean). After desiring a camel coat for years, I finally bought one from Topshop at the beginning of this winter. Every morning when I decide on my outfit for the day, I always end up going back to this coat of mine… It has been a constant struggle to not wear it every single day!

outfit of the day. 31 july

The sun is shining for the first time in about two weeks (I am such a heliophilia)… so spent the entire day outside. I had my morning workout on the university sports fields overlooking the most beautiful mountain range around Stellenbosch, spent the rest of the morning sipping on a refreshing glass of gin&soda at an outdoor market and went long boarding in the Jonkershoek Nature Reserve with my boyfriend in the last moments of the sun. My outfit today was a bit of old-school-meet-new-age. My new Adidas NMD’s made another appearance today, as well as my favourite pair of black…

Today I had the perfect excuse to wear my Timberland boots. It was freezing outside and snow had fallen around the small town of Ceres, and since we rarely ever see snow in South Africa, we decided the 2 hour drive from Cape Town would be worth it.. Although the snow had melted in the areas that we would have been able to reach (the tips of the mountains were still a brilliant white), we still had a great day. Today I wore my over sized blue Country Road jacket, Timberland boots, H&M scarf and jersey and a pair of…

Mondays call for your favourite, most trusted and usually oldest pair of jeans. Mine is from Country Road’s 2009 winter season. I have patched it where time took it’s toll and ripped it to create a whole new feel to the jean. Today I wore my black Country Road jeans with my leather jacket from Mango, scarf from H&M and my new black/peach/pink Adidas NMD runners. A B x
