Urban Camo

May 6, 2014

When it comes to this year’s fashion trends there’s no hiding from camo. This tough, old school print has modernised itself through colour ways and metallic shine.

To soften this tough print, and to avoid looking like you just stepped out of the ranks, don’t rock a head-to-toe camo vibe, unless you going hunting. Rather pick one piece, such as a blouse/button up, and team it with a well fitted pair of skinny jeans and some nude heels. Accessorising your look will help add femininity to this boyish print.

Why not stray away from the traditional print and try a different colour way ? Personally I love a blue camo print.

A comfy, laid back look for a gloomy day in Cape Town. I’m a huge fan of the new sport trend!

Sport trend = COOL looking trainers = comfort for my feet = A very happy Emma.
Who ever said you gotta sacrifice style for comfort?

So with Summer right around the corner here in South Africa, I decided to do a post about “My Beach Must Haves”. As you can tell by the collage above blue and yellow are this year’s season colours for me personally. I love the combo, the blue reminds me of the sky and the water and the yellow reminds me of the sand and sun. What are your beach essentials this Summer? Let me know.

1. Seafolly Bella Rose set, bottoms AUD$69.95, top AUD$99.95 from Seafolly. How cute is this bikini?! I love the material, if you not a fan of the high waisted bikini bottoms they sell cute little bikini briefs too. Available online or try ask the South African store for stock.

2. The Fault in our Stars by John Green, R180 from Exclusive Books . I recently finished reading Looking for Alaska by John Green. It was a beautifully written book filled with amazing quotes and lessons. I was advised by many to read Green’s The Fault in our Stars next so that is way it has made it’s way into my “beach must haves”.

3.) Vichy sun and milk lotion factor 30, R290 from Clicks. This is the best sun lotion I have ever used! I can spend hours in the sun and not burn with this lotion. It also smells amazing, like milk and honey. Not only that, it also applies well, no sticky residue or feeling left on the skin.

4.) Beach bag, £90 from Lacoste. I have not been able to find this bag in South Africa yet, but it is available for online purchase from the online Lacoste store.

5.) Country Road beach towel, R299 from Country Road Woolworths. I bought this towel last Summer and my favourite thing about Country Road towels are that they are huge! You can fit two people on them easily. The little tassles at the bottom are a cute effect too.

6.) Avene Thermal hydrating mist, $11.50 from Avene. If you can not find this product here in South Africa you can find the Evian hydrating mist in most local drugstores/pharmacies.

7.) Viti Coco, R20 from Wellness Warehouse. It’s important to stay hydrated when out and about in the Summer sun.

8.) Umbrella, I have no idea where this umbrella comes from or how much it would cost. I just stumbled upon it online. I wish I knew where it came from as it matches my towel perfectly.

9.) Rayban sunglasses, R2990 from Sunglasses Hut. These sunnies are my ultimate Summer must-haves!
