I am EXHAUSTED!! The last 4 days have been very eventful. M.I.A on Friday was FIRE! Home-girl put on a show for her chil’ren. Saturday was well… trippy. Sunday saw the ‘3 Babes’ do an excursion into the North and Monday was spent in Diepsloot helping a school with their computer lab and library. I legit slept for like 12 hours last night. That being said, I’m looking forward to the week.

Friday: Most of this day was spent doing as little as possible at work, dying in meetings while anticipating M.I.A. I remembered that I once had an off-white jersey so I dug it out and wore it. The supporting acts had to have some colour so I went with a red check button up and dark blue skinny jeans. I tried black jeans, it just didn’t work. The mustard socks were for more colour against the brown suede ankle boots. Cute winter look.

Saturday: One thing we can be grateful for about Jozi winters is the afternoon sun. Nice and warm (for the most part). Took advantage by wearing my tartan skirt, that most people think is a kilt. It’s very much a skirt. I need to get one those strong diaper pins to fasten the flap because I was flashing all sorts of people whenever some wind would show up. Wore the skirt with a navy polo-neck and white old-school design New Balance. 3 items, simple but effective in creating a full lewk. Fave!

Sunday: Going to the North of Johannesburg is an excursion and a half. The Farmers market is always nice for sunshine and some yummy food but coming from downtown it’s a mish! But we sucked it up and paid millions for an Uber to Fourways. What I’m finding is that deciding on a “main” item then working with it is what works best when I get dressed on weekends. I decided on a grey and black striped kimono for Sunday and added in the oversized white tee, ripped pale blue jeans and white Asics Gel-Lytes around it. The colourful cap I added in just for control (and effect).

Sunday

One of my favourite weekends so far. A mix of people, energies and locations. So necessary.

Chase that dream, meet those personal deadlines and make that stranger smile. #newweek

Ok first of all… this weather is so rude! Like who has time to be wet and cold and drive in the mad Joburg roads?! All I can say is that I’m grateful for the great weather we were served with this weekend. Managed some cute sunworthy lewks on the days I managed to wake up and do stuff. Goodness, did I just ramble on about weather? Let’s go!

Friday: As per usj I had to show up for work. Yawn. Swindled some Hershey’s Kisses in a meeting which was pretty sweet. Everything snowballed from after work drinks at The Royale where shots were involved, a surprisingly fun excursion to Rockets Lolitas for a North side razzle and finally jamming with Batuk at The Tennis Club. All this hopping about was in a black Adidas three-quarter tee, black ankle pants and black paint splashed Asics Gel Lytes. Loved this look. Love black!

Saturday: As you can imagine from the day before, I was unable to do anything during the day. Slept my LIFE away! Don’t try such things post 30 years old kids. It’s not cute. I only managed to go to a birthday house party in Randburg but that didn’t stop me from turning it out in my new (well old – cos vintage) grey and black striped kimono with black polo-neck, black knee length skirt and white Asics Lyte Joggers trainers. Black again.

Sunday: After plenty more sleep and an early night, the house houseband and I headed to Nirox Sculpture Park for the annual Winter Sculpture Fair. Nirox is always a great little getaway especially when you can appreciate art in such a great setting. It was hella crowded, but it never disappoints. Kept it Sunday with a chunky mustard jersey over a white button. Custom made wide-legged wrap pants (holla if you’re into them) and cream leather Puma Basket platform sneaks.

An all round goodie. I put on some Britney circa ‘Slave4U’ this morning to push through this gloomy ass day. Do your thang, make this week your biatch!
