I literally searched all of London last year for a cool denim jacket it was like finding a neddle in a hay stack. This year embelished denim jackets are in and they are really affordable. I try each week and post something on fashion because even though I love all things beauty I also am so in love with fashion. Being 42 means trends are repeating themselves and yes 20 years on velvet is back in a big way. So I thought lets write about the embellished denim jacket and velvet trend in one post. Purely because I have purchased both the coolest denim jacket and gorgeous velvet trousers.
Winter is almost here in Cape Town not that I can really call it a real winter and its definitely not like winters in London. But we do have some colder days and icey mornings and evenings. This post is all about my autum winter fashion staples that I have been collecting over the last couple months. My wardrobe needed a real update. This season I have collected a series of winter short sleeve tops, few jumpers and lighter jackets. Not sure if I am even going to get a chance to wear my big winter jackets. I have updated my jacket collection and added in a couple more bomber jackets from plain to print. I have even gone with smart ZaraChanel style jacket for the season for those fancy dinners!!
When it comes to shopping for myself I am literally obsessed with print dresses. My wardrobe consists of prints, jeans and so many tops. As soon as I step into Zara or an H&M my eyes scan out those prints. Yes I have quite a few of the LBD when it comes to going out at night. But for my every day wear a print dress it has to be. I bought this Zara dress last week after seeing it a few times I decided to try it on. Well you can guess it just had to come home with me.
I am not of fan to leaving my blog quiet over the festive season but I did take a few days off to eat and be merry. Definitely a well deserved break and not having to turn on my computer was pretty nice. So today is a short post but I wanted to share my Chistmas gifts from my gorgeous husband Rob. I gave him a list this year and he pretty much got me everything I wanted. He even hit Zara right under my nose and hid the gift amongst the other shopping so a well done to him. If you haven't hit the shops as of yesterday then get yourself down there as the sales are happening. Boxing Day means sales which is annoying but if you got given some cash then go treat yourself.
