It’s all about the sleeveless coat

Here in Cape Town it’s that awkward time just before winter where it’s too hot to wear a jacket but too nippy to be without something warm. The solution? The sleeveless coat.


It’s a chic alternative to the sweater and is easily dressed up or down – effectively working just as well with a cocktail dress as it does with jeans and ankle boots à la Olivia Palermo.

Chella fomo

Living in South Africa is the biggest privilege and my appreciation for this country strengthens each and every day. But there are some times that I wish I lived abroad – sometimes, as in NOW. I would love to be at the Coachella festival right now!

Thought I’d put up some iconic Coachella fashions just because. And you’ll notice that the key players are hands down Kate Bosworth and Rosie Huntingdon Whiteley. They own Coachella Yeowww

Have a sweet Saturday folks.

Polite in my Polo polneck

Jackie Kennedy Onassis in a polo neck

Although no one can do it quite like Jackie O, I think that investing in a chunky Polo neck sweater is essential to create a timeless and classic look this winter. Not only is it trending this season – but it is something that you can wear forever. love love loooove

The prettiest dress I’ve ever seen

Some of my friends have dreamt of their wedding days since they were little girls and, sadly,  I’ve never been one of those. But I’ve nonetheless decided that this will be my wedding dress one day! Haha!
