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.

Desk Life with Kraftisan

October 21, 2015

Not only do I work from home but I study from home too so a clean, organised work space is key for me. I simply can not focus when my work station is topsy-turvy.

Kraftisan recently delivered a press drop with some of their latest products and I immediately feel in love with the puzzle cork pin-board. Yes let me say that again, a puzzle cork pin-board.

For an organisational-whore such as myself, a place to pin my calendar and my countless to-do lists is a must! It’s everything I love: Stylish, minimal, practical and local.

Check out their online store for all the various products they offer. Their laptop stand is next on my shopping list.

P.S I was pretty tempted to stick it up on the side of my fridge but of course my office took priority.

P.S.S Loving my new marble desk goodies too. A steal from the new H&M store and the V&A Waterfront. R230 for both the tray and the cup!

It’s an undeniable fact that white sneakers are not only ruling street style at the moment but the runway too. They seem to be ruling my wardrobe as well, I own five pairs of plain white sneakers!

What better way to update your Spring wardrobe then with a new fresh pair of kicks to spice up your urban leisure outfits.

So without further ado, here are my top ten minimal white sneakers ranging from R300 to R7000, because a girl’s gotta dream right?

Interior Lust List 0.02

So it’s been quite some time since my last interior lust list post but being abroad for so long I am starting to miss my home and I keep thinking about fixing it up when I return to South Africa.

Also I ordered these beautiful, minimal, white draws from @home (see below) back in May and they have finally been delivered! I can’t wait to start accessorising it. I guess that also promoted today’s post.

So today’s interior inspiration is drawn from beautiful, monochromic environments with screeded flooring, bright corners and simplistic designs. I love it!
