Firstly, I hope you’re all having THE BEST long weekend! I decided to take Thursday off as well, so was super excited about my 5 day weekend. I finally got round to doing things I’d been putting off and also had time to drink lots of wine, see friends and family and sleep in – hoorah.
As part of my to-do list, I decided to have a clean out of my wardrobe – particularly all the clothes that don’t fit me anymore. I had so much stuff in storage for in case I ever decided to PUT THE CAKE DOWN. I used to be a size S and now I’m an L – when the fudge did that happen?! I’m sure a lot of us have been down this very well travelled road: You meet the man of your dreams, you eat with the man of your dreams, you start relaxing with the man of your dreams and before you know it, you’re 3 dress sizes bigger and wearing granny panties for the man of your dreams. #sexual.
So, I decided to put myself on a for-weekdays-only diet (cos I’m not totally insane) and get some new items to revamp my look and make me feel confident again. Safe to say, the revamp is working. I have found some great items to wear into spring and judging by all the crazy weather we’ve had in the UK, I feel like its super appropriate.
I also kept my fellow South Africans in mind by creating looks to inspire you as you approach autumn/winter.
When putting these looks together, I wanted to play with silhouettes. Skorts are great because they give you the benefit of shorts, but with the look of a skirt. And we all know how much I looove a balloon sleeve – they’re fun and girly.
I combined these outfits with some biker boots and shoes that I am OBSESSED with. The shoes I got in the Asos sale (so not sure if available but there are similar) and the boots are selling fast on Pretty Little Thing.
Below are my picks. Please see my Instagram for exact outfit credits.
