CONCRETE JUNGLE

Since Pierre and I work from home, we sometimes get a little cabin fever when we have been indoors all day. So it’s pretty common for us to just take a walk around our area at the end of the day. Our area is quite interesting. I mean, we have one of the top restaurants in the city (country?) “Fyn” right across the road from us. And just a round the corner we have the Eastern Food Bazaar (incredible food for cheap, just so BTW). We have cute café’s next to small, Indian electronic shops. The police station across Mavericks…

IN GOOD COMPANY

Did you know that we had a little Central Park here in Cape Town? I am talking about the Company’s Gardens (or Kompanjies Tuine, it’s beautiful Dutch name). I vaguely knew about it before, but since moving down here at the beginning of this year into an apartment that literally looks out over the gardens, I have explored it little by little. And not only because walking through it is a short cut to Yours Truly on Kloof Street, because it’s actually quite peaceful and well looked after. Yes, there are still people taking naps on the grass and sometimes…

YOUR 5 MUST-HAVE JACKETS FOR THIS WINTER (WITH LINKS)

I have rounded up the top 5 MUST HAVE jackets for this winter and I hope I will be getting you excited for layering season! I took a lot of time to find you my favourites in South African stores and you will find them linked in the captions of the photos (you’ll see – the catalogue-type photos, not the inspo-type photos). They range from a bargain (Mr Price, yes), to pricy and everything in between! So, have a look. #1: “HERITAGE FABRICS” Tweed, plaid and houndstooth. Menswear inspired. This winter, I will be permanently throwing it back to my…

WINTER CAME EARLY

What’s up with this weather Cape Town? The current Netflix-and-chill weather is a pleasant change to over-heating summer days, but I am just crossing my fingers that it’s not here for good. If so, it’s going to be a long winter… and I suck at wintering. I need heat and sunshine to survive. I’m not gonna lie, though. I liked dusting off some winter clothes and am really excited about the jackets that I have spotted in the shops’ windows! Give me a bulky jacket and you can be sure that I’m hooked. Even though I dread the Cape winter…

THE GEMS I SCREENSHOT

Just thought I wanted to share some things I loved and screenshot recently. These unrefined golden stacked bangles and rigs are giving me butterflies. Some inspo for my embroidery. Subtle, yet beyond cool. Gigi <3 Right in the feels Ever seen such a perfect combo? Me neither. These are a real girl’s legs. Her name is Kirsty Godso and she’s the most inspiring person on this planet. Jonathan Simkai. NYFW 2018. If I could wear anything in the world… My favourite Instagram account and girl crush. Happily Grey. Remember that. xxxAndy

MUSE | ALEXA CHUNG | JEANS

Alexa Chung has to be one of the most well known fashion influencers/-models/-designers/-names in the world. Known for her cool-chic style that showcases her personality, brands fall over their feet to work with her. I really like her too. It doesn’t seem like she’s too fazed about what everyone else is doing. She just does her own shit. And we love her for that. There’s one thing that we all know about Alexa. That is her love for denim. And she does denim right. Jean trends go through phases every year. Think bell bottom jeans in the 2000’s, baggy hipster jeans…

MUSE |JULIE SARIÑANA | CASUAL BLAZER AND TEE

Julie Sariñana is the ultimate effortlessly chic-cool girl. She started her blog almost 10 years ago and it’s clear why she has made such a success as a fashion blogger. She is the brain, beauty, talent and hard work behind the blog Sincerely Jules and one of the most stylish people I know of. And I am definitely not alone, her 5mil followers on Instagram think so too! She’s just cool. Without trying. She has such a relaxed style (like, I will be featuring her beach style in the future), this is one girl whose closet I can literally live in. Don’t get me…
