Loose

Pants: Pure; Tops & Neckpiece: Mr Price; Shoes: Charles & Keith;
Bag: Zara; Watch: Michael Kors
  
 
Harem pants are so comfortable. In a world of pencil skirts and skinny jeans, it's absolute freedom! I layered with a bright top and played up the yellow in the pants with this dramatic neck piece. Add these clear heels that I searched for forever, and it's a fun look.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Happy Weekend!

Street Chic

Dress & Bag: Mr Price; Shirt: Cotton On; Shoes: Edgars
Sunglasses: Ray Ban from Sunglass Hut; Neckpiece: Zuri


I threw on this oversized shirt at the last minute. I wanted to be chic in a dress and heels, but I wanted to be casual too, a la Julie of Sincerely, Jules. I love her edge. I'd never typically layer like this, but Julie always does it so well and I'm glad I gave it a shot.
 
Layering is a great way to transition pieces throughout the seasons. It's also a great way to get the most wear out of your clothing.

Thankful Tuesday: Isaiah turns One

 
 
Isaiah is one year old today.
 
My boy, we prayed for you long before you were born. We loved you then, and how we love you now! My heart is full. Of all the things we have, to have you is the greatest blessing.
 
I hope you conquer every mountain you will face. I pray that you will experience His grace. May your every heart's desire come to pass. But mostly, may you walk with Christ all your days, and be a man that bares great fruit. You are a world changer, of great honour. You are kind and wise. Oh boy, you are precious in His eyes.
 
Happy Birthday Isaiah.

The Thing About Dreams

Top: Meltz; Pants: Woolworths; Shoes: Zara
Bag: Mr Price; Sunglasses: YDE; Neckpiece: Zuri


You know, sometimes we dream up something and just forget about it. We forget about it because we think it's too big for us. I do that a lot, but when I get the courage to pursue a dream - doors open. Really. And it's God. It just requires some action from us, even if it means just saying your dreams out loud. That's faith. I know you come here for the pictures, and the fashion, but let me tell you - His plan, and His perfect timing, is undeniable. I've seen the fruit of His dedication to make my dreams come true so often. Don't brush off your dreams because you think it's impossible - that's the thing about dreams.

Have a great weekend!

[Do] Flatter Yourself

Top & Skirt: Xogo; Shoes: Melissa; Bag: Zara
Sunglasses: China Town; Earrings & Vest: Mr Price
 
 
I love this print and own a few similar pieces (because if something works, repeat it - ha!). I wore a dress in this fabric/print the other day. It's a great fabric so gives the right support, and the print itself also masks any lumps and bumps. I'll choose a patterned bodycon piece over a solid colour any day! I encourage women to know every inch of their body, even especially the dimples! That way, you'll learn how to dress to flatter your body.

A Good Buy

Dress: Topshop; Shoes: Mr Price; Bag: Zara
Sunglasses: China Town; Earrings: Gifted
  

I really like this dress. I got it on sale at Topshop nearly a year ago, and I look forward to wearing it a zillion times more. Black & white is such a classic combination; it makes it easy to take one piece into every season.
 
I want to get to a place where my wardrobe is filled with pieces that are versatile, and transitional. It's tough for a girl who is keen to try a trend, but I really believe that a good closet is one with classic, easy-to-match pieces. Here's hoping I am able to achieve that soon.
 
 







Thanks to my mom for these pictures; I think she's getting really good at this.
