Transeasonal Denim Done Two Ways

March 29, 2018

Has anyone else felt like March has been an insanely emotionally challenging month? My personal life has felt like a pan of scrambled eggs. Everything from work deadlines to challenging health obstacles I’ve never so eagerly awaited the end of a month as much as I have with March 2018. (Not that the end of a month solves anything but you know, clean slate just helps things mentally.)

At least seasons are changing and I’m grateful for that. I just adore transeasonal dressing. More layers = more fun!

Speaking of transeasonal, is there anything more versatile than a denim jacket? This one has a dark black wash and finished with light brushing and abrasions for a beautiful lived-in feel. I was clearly inspired by the 70’s and the flower power kids, embracing my inner hippy with a floral maxi dress paired with some comfy trainers for the perfect effortless street style  look.

Denim overalls – the ultimate off-duty style. A.k.a coffee hunting outfit. Comfortable and adaptable for any situation or style. Also having a major crush on beret’s at the moment ever since I discovered they the perfect beanie alternative, they really do keep your ears warm!

Which look do you prefer? L.A chic flower power gal or wannabe Parisian painter?

A Knitted Affair

March 16, 2016

Twinset 01

Recently I’ve been staying in the most unbelievable house in Cape Town that I never want to leave. Every morning , as the sun rises, I am greeted with an unobstructed view of the full length of Table Mountain (One of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World) and feel, excuse the hashtag, utterly #blessed.

Lately I’ve been feeling uninspired by work and life in general but I think this house may just have ignited my ambition, perseverance and creative juices. Fingers crossed it’s a permanent thing…

When it comes to ease, nothing beats a twinset. Your outfit is already paired together for you and all you got to do is add a pair of shoes and an accessory or two and you good to go because we all know that taking over the World requires our full attention.

White on White

An all white outfit can be intimidating. However you’ll be pretty surprised at how well an all white outfit holds up throughout the day.

With Summer right on our doorstep I’ve been wearing more and more white each day. There’s something so chic about an all white affair. “Yes, I’m a lady of luxury that catches Uber Black between my lunch meetings and shopping spree’s on Madison Avenue and no, I never mess red wine on my outfit.” 

This soft, feminine top is a perfect statement piece. Its cutaway detailing and soft drape pairs perfectly slim fit or waterfall trousers. A chic outfit that can take you from day to night with as little effort as simply applying a lip.

The Secret Garden

September 25, 2015

MLIP_Prague Gardens_052 copy copy

Wallenstein Garden or otherwise know as Valdštejnská zahrada, is my absolute favourite thing about Prague. A secret garden in the middle of Lesser Town, right below the Prague Castle.

We first stumbled upon the exquisite garden on our first day exploring the streets of Prague while on the way to dinner in Old Town and I knew straight away that I simply just had to shoot a look post there.

So on our last day in Prague we made our way to Wallenstein Garden to shoot my look post. As we got there it started pouring with rain, and I mean pouring… buckets! So much for getting up early to curl my hair.

I was determined to shoot this post and no amount of rain was going to stop me. So I hid under archways while Justin stood in the rain, camera in one hand, an umbrella in the other to protect his camera. He really is my super photographer.
