While I was scanning through all of my photos from the amazing trip that I took with my mother last year, I came across an outfit that I hadn’t shared yet! This aztec dress is one of my favourites for traveling.
These photos were taken the day we spent exploring the towns along the Amalfi Coast. An area of Italy that is very close to Sorrento and The Isle of Capri. It was the first time we had managed to spend a day on the beach, and we couldn’t believe the rocks and pebbles lining the shore. I’m aware that that’s what most European beach are like, having been to Greece before, but coming from Cape Town with our white sandy stretches of seaside heaven, it always surprises me. But when in Amalfi, one must do as the Italians do – so we ate gelato, explored the cobbled streets and lay in the sunshine all day long.
I absolutely love Valentines Day. I think it’s so fantastic that there’s a day dedicated simply to love every single year, and while I absolutely make an effort to show the people I love how much they mean to me the whole year through, it’s nice to do something just a little extra special on Vday. There’s a serious heatwave happening in Cape Town at the moment – it was 43 degrees celsius yesterday in the city. Luckily I had just the outfit to keep me cool and cute.

I love things that shine. I’m like a magpie. It’s an obsession that I try and wangle into everything in life, because what’s better than something that sparkles, right? Well in that case, what could possibly be more fantastic that a full sequin blazer? Thank you Zara for making my dreams come true.
