Ankle Boots

Everyone who knows me, knows that I love flats. Had I not been a corporate working class girl, my closet would’ve probably comprised solely of flats. So with the imminent occurrence of winter, I needed a few items to update my wardrobe (which is usually the case on an annual basis). And this year, ankle boots were number one on my list. There are just so many beautiful styles to choose from however none ‘spoke’ to me.

 

That was until I walked into Nine West (for a very different reason might I add). I found the most ideal pair of ankle boots in the store and Murphy’s law, they don’t have it in my size. The sales assistant goes on to tell me they are basically sold out of this style across South Africa. Oh the horror! Anyways, being my determined self, I still left my details just in case by some miracle a pair could be sourced. And as they say, the rest is history! I am now the proud owner of the most amazing ankle boots.

 

I will be doing a series of posts incorporating these boots into my looks so keep an eye out for them. And ladies remember, you don’t need these exact pairs to create gorgeous looks. My looks are purely inspiration for you to get out your boots and style them to perfection.

My first look incorporates rolled jeans. I love letting a bit of my ankle show between my jeans and boots, highlighting the thinnest part of my legs so that I don’t look like I have wide ankles. This look works best with skinny jeans. Other styles of jeans tend to shorten your legs when rolled. I’ve paired these jeans with a loose fitting shirt for a comfortable yet stylish weekend look.

The Collar Obsession Continues

So I’m crushing on collars. And today we off to Neverland! So growing up I was obsessed with Disney and one would have thought I would’ve outgrown this by now, but of late, I’ve fallen in love with Peter Pan collars. They are classic and chic, which means you bound to score mega style points. I’ve styled my Peter Pan collar on a simple skater dress to bring my look together. Hope this helps you find some Disney inspiration (one can never be too old for a bit of Disney)!

Leather and Bows

Once again, I’ll be starting today’s post by moaning about the weather. Do not let the sun in my pictures fool you, the wind is definitely set to cold-room vibes. I’m over it but at the same time, it means I get to indulge in something other than Spring dresses! So leather shorts it is! Leather is an amazing fabric! It keeps you warm without looking frumpy, so despite it being Spring, it’s perfect for days like today. Leather shorts. Stockings. Chic shirt.

I can probably get use to somewhat covering up in Spring without layering like its Winter. And honestly, I’m loving leather shorts, in a really chic and classy kinda way. There’s also so many looks that can be created from this item (casual, dressy, semi formal, formal), that investing in a pair of leather shorts offers great value for the cha-ching. Thank you Zara and Woolies for always making dressing up an absolute bliss!!
