NAVY DAZE

April 4, 2018

We’ve been staying in the city quite a bit these past few weekends, and as much as I would like to say I’ve really been enjoying it; I’m starting to feel caged beyond. I really crave the fresh air, the open landscapes and of course the adventure. That being said I have been able to catch up with friends, and wear pretty dresses that might feel out of place in the bush. Maybe I just need to be more active in the city, we are so close to nature here in Cape Town. And also maybe I need to stop complaining about not being away cause I sound like a broken record. Winter is fast approaching so camping trips will soon be out of the question, but I do have a list of cute cottages and fireplace friendly getaways (maybe I should do a post?) in the Western Cape.

NOT CORPORATE

April 2, 2018


Misplaced these pictures a couple weeks ago somewhere deep in my laptop (please tell me this happens to normal people as well) but managed to locate them over the long weekend! I remember putting this look together on a day I was feeling uber ill, and wanted something warm as it was overcast but somehow less corporate. And thats when the Victorian blouse came in, keeping it soft and whimsical, creating the perfect 830am spreadsheet tax meeting look. Other than that I bought this suit cause I felt ridiculous not owning at least one matching business look, even though I might never actually work a 9-5pm power job. I love how the pieces can be worn separately as well, the blazer looks great with jeans and the trousers are the perfect cut for a slouchy knit.

THE POWER OF RED

March 11, 2018


A colour I have been drawn to my entire life; partly because my surname means reds in Italian and partly because its the most powerful scarlet tone. It’s the kind of shade that makes you feel noticed, but also strong and fearless, it’s not for everyone so  people often shy away from a vibrant colour that calls too much attention. Red can also represent anger and heat; emotions and elements with negative connotations. However red for me needs to be harnessed, controlled so that you feel in charge, so that you are wearing it and not they other way round.

SUNPAINT

March 6, 2018


Sometimes the sun flickers along the beach and in that moment you know all your internal worries about life are going to be okay. It’s normal to feel overwhelmed, but those feelings can’t consume you, else they paralyse your mind from pushing past a shitty day. And sometimes it really just is a shitty day. No more no less. You are power.

BACK TO WEEKENDING

February 27, 2018

It has been a while since we got away for the weekend, I need to be in nature to really switch off and that’s why a quick West Coast vacation does the trick. I constantly get asked were we stay when we head to Paternoster, our best family friends have a beautiful spacious home on the beach with a cute cottage at the side (perfect for couples). So we stay there each time we go up. They do rent it out when they don’t use it or are back in Israel and all the details for it are here http://zulabeachhouse.co.za. The place is perfect for a big group/ family in the main house, or if you are wanting a romantic weekend away just the two of you the cottage can be booked separately! The grass has just been replaced with decking(due to the draught), so it looks even snazzier! Other places to rent or stay I will link below.
