Despite the sweltering, uncomfortable heat – one of the biggest benefits of summer in South Africa is definitely the versatility of your wardrobe. During the summer months, there are some days when it still feels like winter and you can put on some boots, and other days when it’s so hot that espadrils are your only companion on the beach. Beyond that, you can wear open-toe heels without worrying about your toes falling off from the cold. So, in conjunction with Superbalist and the latest Sole Venture story on their blog with Aqeelah Harron and Anelisa Mangcu (which you can shop here), I thought I’d show you my top picks from each shoe category and give you a little insight into how I’d style them.

On the 8th of June, I won tickets to Cosmopolitan & Forever New’s VIP Shopping Experience in Canal Walk and throughout that evening, they took us through some of the major trends for this season. Two of them that really got me good were bodysuits and the colour maroon (it probably had to do with Marsala being Pantone’s Colour Of The Year last year ?). View Post
If you follow me on Twitter, you’ve probably heard me express my disdain towards the ’70s trend and festival fashion. And trust me – despite this look post – it still exists. How else do you respond to a trend that’s been shoved down your throat for over two years other than to be annoyed?

This past week – after finishing exams and painstakingly moving out of res – I came back to Joburg (my homeburg) and I don’t think I’d realised just how much I enjoyed eating a variety of breakfast foods in my onesie, catching up on DSTv, showering barefoot and using two-ply toilet paper. The freedom that is Cape Town is amazing and all, but cuddling with your mother is pretty great too.
