STRIPE BLOCKING

DSC_0101 DSC_0107 DSC_0111 DSC_0119 DSC_0139

These are easily one of my most favourite pants ever as they’re so fun to style. I’ve dressed them down with t-shirts and dressed them up with dressy top options, one of them is this Sune shirt from their first collection that looks like it was made for these Laurence Doligé pants from Tilda. Side band trousers are definitely an instant must-have, plus it makes you look about an inch or two taller (ha!)

In the next couple of weeks, I’ll be doing an Instagram takeover for one of my favourite retail shops! Stay tuned on @religionblack ❣ ❣

Happy Easter weekend everyone! X

17NOV2016 // MASUNGI

It was no fun trying (and failing) to sleep the night before a 3am call time, but seeing all the beauty and adventure that Masungi Georeserve had to offer made the lack of sleep totally worth it. I was initially stupefyingly nervous since I’m terrified of heights, but getting over that fear for a moment and going through the trail was an experience I’ll never forget (or repeat for a little while). Many experienced hikers would rate this as easy, or even luxurious- I personally enjoyed using clean toilets before and after the hike. Highly recommend!

Finding an outfit that is both good for performance and fashion was a challenge. Believe it or not, I never splurge on workout gear. So of course I went for the thing I actually hoard- bodysuits! It worked out perfectly, and with my girl Shayna’s look to match. Naturally, we had to do some twinning photos together ♡

28OCT2016 // EVERYDAY

dsc_0094 dsc_0111 dsc_0122 dsc_0130

This is me for about four days of the week. I change up the pants to long shorts or the top to a t-shirt when I can be a little more casual and when it gets too hot out. The other three days are wild card days. Working in a restaurant has highlighted the importance of wearing natural fibers- it’s just too damn hot with anything else! My challenge for the following week would be to wear non-sneaker footwear, just to remind myself that I do have those options ha ha

Happy weekend everyone! X

23SEP2016 // SHADOW PLAY

Man, it’s been a while. I’ve been crazy busy with restaurant things- it feels so good to finally take a break ♡ Had a bit of fun playing with the tree shadows while taking these photos.

This look is my little answer to this very hot day. This, and an iced latte (not pictured). Really excited to be wearing my granny trainers, as I call them, they’re super comfy because the insoles are made of memory foam (what?!?!). I predict them to be my new staples.

Happy weekend everyone! And happy fashion weeks!! So excited xx

29JUL2016 // TEES UNDER EVERYTHING

DSC_0085DSC_0106 DSC_0091 DSC_0088

I’ve been really enjoying layering tees, tanks, and shirts under dresses and tops a little too much for three main reasons: 1) that I get cold so damn easily 2) it’s more appropriate for work and 3) it super maximizes the wardrobe. Layering in this tropical weather is pretty tricky and limited to thin fabrics as I really can’t wear any knit at the moment (too hot! maybe when it starts raining again) but also can’t wear bare slips when entering air conditioned rooms.. S/o to the 90s for showing us this trick.

BRB- layering for the next few days. Happy weekend everyone! X

22JUL2016 // FAVOURITE DENIM

DSC_0005 DSC_0037 DSC_0042 DSC_0055 DSC_0072

These photos were taken on an especially sicky day, hence the sunnies on a cloudy day (but yes I also love how my sunnies match my bag ha ha!). My lovely friends remind me to take a break from work and rest it out, but work always does get in the way!

On these difficult days I find that I’ve been reaching for the cozy denim I’ve lovingly worn and softened out. These are my ultimate favourites from the mens line of Acne Studios. Get a couple colours and you are set for life.

Styled with other faves, la bathrobe jacket and linen tee for extra warmth and comfort <3

Happy weekend everyone!

15JUL2016 // GREY MATTERS

DSC_0125DSC_0132 DSC_0141DSC_0165 DSC_0173 copy

My love for camouflage prints are a little evident since this is my second consecutive post wearing it. Found this muted grey/black one which is super perfect for me. Extra layers added via the tailored vest to add some dimension to the look. As I’ve gotten older, I notice every dress I have been purchasing has been longer than usual. Is it an age thing or a style thing? Stay tuned as even I have yet to find out.

 

Happy weekend! X

13MAY2016 // DATE NIGHT

DSC_0014DSC_0030DSC_0033 DSC_0054

Dressing for date night is always a fun challenge. At least for me, because I always have to wear something oversized or something that plays around with silhouette to feel like myself. Unless its a really awesome dress, I prefer to play with separates to be more flexible (could be literal now that I think of it. Ha ha)

Ended up with my favourite vest, cut up flares and the usual little peek-a-boo. Mules are default since I can’t walk in high heels anymore #grandmaproblems
