Hallelujah for the Weekend!

What a week it has been - I cannot describe my relief that it is over! 
It is also such an exciting time as I am starting my new job in 2 weeks! Counting down the days!

For today's style I chose my two trusted favorites : Boyfriend Jean and All Stars - I swear these are my go-to items whenever I just want some casual style.
My jeans are from River Island and so so comfortable, the fit is also slimmed down so it's not so baggy. 

Mango also has some great options and you can shop online now in SA.
Check them out here.

A loose knit Emerald green knit from H&M paired with the season must have accessory - the "Choker" from Lovisa.

My dear friend from Jewels and Lace also have a wide selection of Chokers at really affordable prices, check it out here.

Easy Casual Chic for a very relaxed weekend.

Lazy Saturday Style

Winter is coming, which means lazy Saturdays just relaxing at home with my family. Working in the fashion industry means every day is "dress-up" day so when the weekend comes, I don't want to think too hard about what I am going to wear. 
Comfort on the weekend is essential.

Comfort for me starts with the right underwear and nothing makes me feel more sexy and comfy at the same time as a bralette, I love the ones from Cotton On Body
They have various colours to choose from and prices are very reasonable.
Other retailers also stock great options - check it out here and here.

On a recent trip to our local mall, Mall of the South - I ventured into Pick a Pay Clothing, I was quite surprised at the quality of their Coloured Jeggings.
They are retailing at a great price and in the must have Winter Khaki / Fatigue colour, I couldn't resist!

Another comfy and must have Winter essential is the Platform Sneaker, be it slip-on or lace-up, they are making a come back! (Having flashbacks of Spice Girl Platforms)
Mine are from H&M and aren't available online anymore but there are other options available hereherehere, here, here and here!

Pair these with a Grey Melange Sweater I bought yonks ago, some round Sunglasses and I'm ready to soak up the last little bit of sunshine before the clouds come rolling in for the cold front this weekend!

Have a lovely weekend, whatever you are doing - have fun!

Statement neck pieces

One of my favorite things is a statement neck piece! 
It's my ultimate must have and I have collected quite a range over the years! 
It never goes out of fashion and instantly glams up any outfit!

Happy 2013!!

I absolutely love Pinterest! Thanks to my new iphone app, I am constantly running out of battery power as I trail through the wonderful world of pins!

I dont really have a New Year's resolutions but would like to share a few quotes I found on Pinterest that are so true and great for the new coming of season (2013)...

A Happy New Year, may it be all and more that you hope for!

Hair inspiration on a Sunday

I saw a picture on #pinterest this week that inspired me to try this braided bun! After trying what seems like forever, I finally got it! The trick is patience, using small strands of hair and the must have dougnut bun (from dischem). Have fun! Xx
