Trying a trend

Jeans: Mr Price; Top: YDE; Boots & Sunglasses: China Town; Hat: Foschini
Bag: Sowearto; Watch: MK; Rings: Woolworths; Earrings: Honey

 I don't love over-the-knee boots - but since I'm curious about the trend I thought I'd give it a go and get a cheap pair (at China Town!). An expensive pair wouldn't serve me well (although I do prefer leather), because the amount of wears it gets wouldn't justify the cost.
I had fun trying out this look, and I will enjoy the challenge of trying these boots different ways - still keeping it classy. There's a grey area - between trashy and classy, so be careful with it if you're giving the over-the-knee boot a try.

Thanks for coming by and have a good weekend!

Workwear (for him)

As Husband was leaving for work today, I quickly took a few pictures. He hasn't featured on the blog lately, and he's totally worth gate crashing Awkward & Awesome Wednesday.
He always looks so dapper, and he's got the blogger pose down too. Ha!

Thank you for coming by!

I love that happy hues are trending this season. Winter doesn't have to dull! Snuggle up to pastels and even brights and make a bold statment.

Casual Day

Pants, Earrings & Rings: Woolworths; Shirt: Foschini
Bag: Gifted LV; Shoes: Melissa; Watch: MK

I wore this on Saturday, when it was still warm enough to show some bare ankle! These pants are great for that in between weather because the fabric's quite thick for Summer. It's the perfect Spring piece.

Sorry for these night time pictures, and thanks for coming by!

Jeans:  Gifted; Shirt & Neckpiece: Mr Price
Coat: Woolworths; Shoes: Zara; Sunglassses: China Town

This outfit is really all about the coat, although the pop of colour in the shoes in a great addition. Winter doesn't have to be dull. 

Sorry for the photo overload, I just loved having Lerato take my pictures again!

Thanks to Lerato for these pictures!

Thankful Tuesday

Jeans & Blazer: Mr Price; Top: Jay Jay's; Shoes: Fashion Express; Bag: Zara; Neckpiece: Zuri

I'm a little under the weather today, but there's still loads to be thankful for. Like great vegetable soup, and a mom who still gets me medicine. There's a warm bed, and husband's hot chocolate. There's still Isaiah's hilarious personality to make me smile, and there's smarties. Oh, and there's a Melissa shoes voucher I won today. Loads to be thankful for.
What are you thankful for today?

Thank you for coming by. And, thank you to my niece Annushka for these pictures (she's been taking pictures for me lately).

Motherhood Monday

Dress & Neckpiece: Mr Price; Stockings, Earrings & Rings: Woolworths
Shoes: Zoom; Bag: Zara; Hat: Foschini; Gilet: Xogo; Watch: MK 

Last night Isaiah slept right through. All night. Until 6:30 this morning, then he had a bottle, and slept some more. It was heaven.
You see, at nearly 15 months old, Isaiah still doesn't sleep right through the night. I don't know if we can still blame teething. I mean, it's been forever. Letting him into our bed (after he wakes up a dozen times) doesn't help, I know. So maybe we should blame ourselves. I'll take this undeserved victory, thank you very much.

Thank you for coming by!
