Cut Outs and Tartan in London

Cut Outs and Tartan in London

In a way I really hoped that London would be warmer than it was since I had freezing weather back at home. But the colder weather begged for layering, which I’m all about! I especially love adding my totally oversized Zara tartan scarf to any outfit and have decided that I just simply need more. So I’m on the lookout for another scarf. Don’t miss my next post on my latest and greatest lust list.

The Perfect Maxi Dress in Portofino

The Perfect Mai Dress in Portofino

I have been looking for the perfect maxi dress for some time now and I finally found it in Zara. On sale even! The embroidery on the chest reminds me of those Valentino dresses a few years back. And what better place to wear this grechen beauty than in one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to, Portofino.

Monochorme in Versailles

Monochrome in Versailles

This being my third trip to Paris I thought it was about time that I visited Versailles. It is so spectacular but also very overwhelming. To think that people actually lived there blows my mind. My favourite part about it all are the gardens, they are so beautiful and maze-like gardens are just fun.

The Eye-ful Tower

The Eye-ful Tower

You cant help look at the Eiffel Tower and feel so much happiness. Or at least I can’t, it is my favourite piece of art (in stiff competition with Jackson Pollock) and its beauty will never get old for me. So, I thought I would dress up for it a bit today with my new Zara eye print dress. But, I still had to wear my comfy sneakers because, lord, I have done a lot of walking.

Pastels and Leather in Amsterdam

Leather in Amsterdam

Today was my last day in Amsterdam. On the rest of my days in this beautiful city the weather has been quite indecisive, which is something I am very used to living in Cape Town. Often when the temperature is going through all the seasons in one day I tend to do the same with my clothing. So, I wore my birks for the times in the day when the weather is hot and then I wore my favourite coat for that chilly wind that creeps into the streets of Amsterdam from time to time.
