Lone Shore

Cape Town’s endless Summer heatwave these past few weeks had me stripping down to the bare necessities and many lone walks down by the shore.

Dewy complexions, tanned skin tones and beachy hair… no need to say anything more.

Old Mac Daddy

November 16, 2015


There’s nothing quite like escaping a week of madness like a trip out into the countryside.
Old Mac Daddy in Elgin is my go-to spot, it’s only an hour out of town and has the perfect balance of comfort and nature. (But more about Old Mac Daddy in tomorrow’s blog post.)

It was still a little chilly in the early mornings and late evenings out in the country side so I made sure to pack some warmer items. My striped poncho was the perfect comfort item to cuddle up in next to the fire or throw on for my morning walks amongst the fynbos and apple orchards.

It’s funny how are wardrobes can do a 180 degree turn in the space of a year. A year ago you wouldn’t catch me in a pair of denims unless a.) they were tiny denim daisy dukes or b.) a pair of black skinny’s when casting for shoots or runway shows. Now I own about ten pairs of various denim jeans and I still have my eye on a few more.

One of my favourite denim additions to my wardrobe this year is a pair of vintage Levi 501 CT’S from 1982. I’ve been wanting a pair of “mom jeans” for some time now so was pretty stoked to finally own a pair.

Today’s look post is very much inspired by That 70’s Show: Double denim, mom jeans, granny polar-necks and yellow tinted Miu Miu’s.

There’s nothing quite like a morning escape to the beach with my book. I must say I haven’t been reading a lot lately due to my approaching exams and I miss my morning walks on the beach with my book. This look post has me reminiscing.

There’s two things I love dearly 1.) hats and 2.) a decent button up. One of my recent purchases from Witchery is this oversize khaki button up which allows me to embrace my inner tomboy with a military kick.
