Sorry my brain literally short-circuited when I had to think of a title, so do ignore my dorky attempt at being corny. I have to admit this is my favourite of year in SA. I love the crisp air and cool mornings and now I sound like I’m writing an ode to autumn. Okay but really I do love autumn, its summery enough to show skin (please no ashy skin though, I’ll scream) and wintery enough to go all whimsical ice queen on everyone. Besides, rain and wind added to the mix this year you have to cover up somewhat and for the love of God, please don’t wear UGGs and shorts. I don’t know who started that retarded trend; you look like a confused Eskimo ho, so please dont. So as it starts to cool down, you don’t have to pack away your summery shorts and dresses because thanks to leggings they become versatile again. I am such an ankle boots fan and I swear sometimes I actually countdown to winter. It’s kinda lame, but honestly if I could only have say, 5 pairs of shoes (as if *laughs*), I would defiantly have a pair of ankle boots in that basic shoe survival kit.
Living in Johannesburg, has its benefits. One of them is being able to dress like these lookbookladies and not feel weird. Admit it, Durban doesn’t actually have winter and Cape Town is so bipolar, one day it’s snowing and the next it’s hot as hell. Yes I know I’m all smiles now but when it starts getting to cold to breathe and water starts freezing in taps (That is actually a true story!), you’ll probably get a post about me hating the middle of winter. Right, so back to these ladies, I do hope they inspire you.
