Welcome back beautiful people!

Before we go any further, let me just take a moment to mention that I’ve been a follower of Tegan’s work for a good 2+ years now and I’ve always admired her vision/execution from a distance. Finally, I took the plunge and booked a blogger lookpost with her and I’m thrilled with the result. If I can give you some advice, from one blogger to another, BOOK WITH HER NOW!

Moving on… To be honest, I was quite anxious (but equally excited) for the shoot, so much so that I spent the night sewing well into the early hours of my shoot day to calm my nerves instead of get some beauty rest. Thank goodness to Megan of Femanique who managed to cover up whatever baggage was visible by daylight and ensured that my face was picture perfect for the what the day had in store.

Onto the look ->

#Yaaaaaaz honey!

As you all know I’m pretty honest and upfront about my style; how I choose to dress and my reason behind it. This look is right on the money as far as representing my weekend-wardrobe-vibe. I have a VERY ACTIVE 1 year old which means running after her is a reality and I cannot do that in heels… not that I’m complaining as the love for sensible shoes are so real you guys!

There is nothing quite as comfortable as leggings so don’t even try to deny. It’s winter here in Cape Town, which means warming up in a crew-neck and putting on some sneaks just screams comfort and there is no reason why it shouldn’t be embraced especially since you know I’m a huge fan of street style and the whole “sneakers-with-everything” movement.

I hope you like this Adidas Styled look post and appreciate the brilliant photography. Honestly, these images just give me the feels!

I am currently really into sewing and I often create accessories and garments for not only myself but for my daughter too.

Having us coordinate is a tiny obsession of mine and instead of spending hours online searching for the perfect item, I decided to create them myself.

My latest DIY is this ultra adorable faux fur gilet.

Of course it had to be black due to my serious love for monochrome but I had made a brown one first which she’ll wear in a future lookpost.

The amount of faux fur fluff on my floor is enough to make a rug but it’s all worth it once the product is complete.

I really hope you guys like it, I certainly do.

Don’t you just love Autumn? I know I do. There’s just something magical about crisp mornings and fall skies…

Few weeks ago I met up with Tegan Smith and she shot this look I put together at the iconic Sea Point Promenade. This is my general day-to-day look, and not only is it transitional, affordable and stylish but it makes me feel confident and at the end of the day isn’t that what fashion is supposed to do?

I’ve been living for Kimonos ever since I picked up this blue beauty at Cotton On during their insane sale for R100. The enjoyment of a versatile clothing item is really unmatched by it’s price in my opinion. Regardless of the rand value, the quality is really great and snagging this puppy when it was marked down from R350 allowed me to purchase 2. (I would have gotten more but I didn’t want to go cray)

Can we please just have a moment for these boots?! Each time they’re strapped on my feet I’m showered with compliments and what girl doesn’t love that!

I was lucky enough to be part of a group of bloggers who received uber chic boots from Footgear and I must say, they are my favourite in my cupboard right now. I have to actively stop myself from wearing them on the DAILY but thank goodness Footgear has amazing in store specials running where you can get 2 viva shoes for R500!

These fat fingers I can thank my momma for but I can thank her for my cute toes too so I aint mad.

The obsession with this bag is real you guys! It goes perfectly with so many of my OOTD’s but I’ve decided to not neglect my other companions and will be featuring a newbie in an upcoming post.
