Celebrating the sun
Finally it looks like we have our sunny summer days back. So I've decided to hurry up and celebrate it considering it could be over again without warning.
In this look I'm wearing my casual cotton harem pants Which I picked up for cheap at some random clothing store late last year. I thought them a great addition to my leisure wear items.
I wore these pants with a cotton dress that used to be popular with me many years ago,
it was one of the very first items I purchased from YDE way back in the day.
I then coupled my Katalyst Kollection chokers with this LOVE pendent, leather strap necklace I got for my birthday not too long ago for accessories, and a sparrow pendent long necklace to complement my sunglass chain and watch as they would have been the only gold items worn.
I must say that I don't mind silver and gold being worn together, as with everything else, its just about finding that perfect balance to break the rules.
What I really like about this combo Is that it creates an illusion of being an all in one piece, the stretch cotton fabric used for both garments is a perfect match.
Then finally i decided on these black strap wooden heel platforms, they make the look more dressed up without being too much.
And then the decorative whole at the back of the dress... I find it adds that extra bit of relaxed sexyness to the look.
Till the next time we play dress-up, keep well and take care♥

Chasing the rain away.
So this would be my first post this March... I know, completely shameful, i've just been so tightly wound up with home and work matters, it's a bit of a crazy time.
Its also been very rainy lately, trough out most of the country really. Im not complaining because I find that cold weather creates opportunity to practise authentic style, with that said, I wouldn't say no to sunshine again even though i am more enticed by winter apparel.
For today the bow makes a comeback to add that girly girl tough to my otherwise boyish outfit, the bow is made from three variations of Seshweshwe fabric. To add a bit of fun I then added a Katalyst Kollection choker and a cut-off piece of fabric which I stuffed into my jacket pocket, both of their own Seshweshwe fabric to continue the theme.
I decided on this cobalt blue belt with a bow buckle as a perfect addition to keep my look significantly feminine.
Along with these blue and white stacked platform brogue shoes I'm super crazy about, even though they aren't the most comfortable pair I've owned.
The rest is just a grey blazer I picked up at Mango, a white vest from Mr Price and slim fit high waisted black pants by LMClothing.
Im also wearing a clear pink beaded choker also by Katalyst Kollection and a leather lace strap with a Love pendent i got for my birthday once, again, awesome gifts that actually work:D and a long sparrow pendent necklace for taste.
And there you have it...The dream team;D
