Weekend Mirror Style

God. The instagram “camera” is actually quite shite. Or is it the mirror? Uhh… whatever. Let’s just go with “it adds effect”. I wanted to do this post yesterday, you know… for consistency sake. But my Monday had other plans. Mostly eye-rolling my life away at the office, groceries, a quick 20-minute meal and making silly instastory videos of me singing to Destiny’s Child’s “Sexy Daddy”. But in short… I totes forgot.

So Friday: A razzle at the office. Lord knows a full productive day on Friday isn’t a real thing. I wore black pretty much all week because we were in mourning. Obvs kept it cute and edgy with an #IAmWinnieMandela t-shirt I got at ConHill last Tuesday. Worked around the tee with cropped black pants showing my “beetlejuice” socks for colour, black leather ankle boots and a biker jacket. Apparently the jacket is very Michael Jackson? Maybe more ‘I’m Bad’ than ‘Thriller’? Anywho… it was fun to do a bit of a punk-esque vibe.

Friday

Saturday was a a full day! After passing out early with the lights on and blinds up while trying to finish ‘Wild Wild Country’ I woke up at 6am to get ready for Mam Winnie’s funeral. I didn’t take a mirror snap but I did a black polo neck, black coat and black brogue styled ankle boots. I think I was thinking more traditional funeral vibes. Really glad I went. What a phenomenal woman. Her send off was historic. And yes… Cape Town International we’re coming for you!

Second part of the day was spent at Corona Sunsets Festival out in Modderfontein. Which sounds like it’s hella far, but it’s just off Marlboro! Threw this lewk together around a vintage tartan skirt I got at ivintageyakho in WorkShopNewtown. The pattern popped around the black and grey. I also have way too many of these Adidas trefoil tees. I initially was gonna go without anything under the skirt, but then figured I could use the skirt as like a shawl situation when it got cold. I hate carrying jackets if I’m not driving. Needless to say I forgot to use that idea and froze my tits off when the temperature suddenly dropped just before midnight. Super fun times, I think I’ll do a post on it tomorrow.

Saturday (After Tears)

Sunday I kept it a little preppy for brunch with the house-husband. A white tee with a patterned elephant, cropped navy pants and tan woven sandals did the trick. You’d swear I had a full day ahead with the tote bag and everything. I literally came home  straight after and vegged on the couch until kingdom come. I just had no energy for anything. Bummed I missed Nirox Picnic Day. Oh snap! Beychella happened on this day. Zero wigs to speak of. That woman is something else. Praise bey.

Weekend Style

Am I the only one who is bummed Easter is over?! Also… I don’t know what titles to give these weekend style posts. The last one worked because it was a “themed” weekend. And by “themed” I mean Jesus died and moved that massive stone out of the way to rise and do the things. Love it!

So I really need to get better at remembering to save my insta mirror style snaps to use on here. O.M.G. I just gave myself the title for these posts! Mirror Style! Unless it’s another themed weekend you know.

Friday was work. Bleh. So natch I forgot to take a mirror style selfie. I’ll do better, promise. Only if you care of course. But for the purpose of this post I’ve used a mirror selfie from Thursday night with some of my faves (Siya and Zweli). It’s basically the same look sans the hat and jacket… and different sneakers. Lol, I’m explaining too much. Go with it. I think it was a bit chills, so it was basically a grey polo-neck (going to be so essensh for winter – stock up!), dark grey tailored ankle length pants and the paint splashed Aisics sneaks. Nice and basic. Went to a networking event that night which I will share in my next post.

Update: Thanks to Miss Randi Va, I found ALL my archived instastories on the app. Rejoice! Thanks for looking out girl.

Thursday (which was basically my Friday lewk)

Saturday was spent partly at gym (hate that place, but it does the things), partly at home helping a friend with their filming assignment and mostly at Zoo Lake for a birthday party. I obvs only got dressed for the party with a navy basic tee, comfy AF navy and white capri pants and insanely bright Adidas NMD sneakers. Added in a pineapple and question mark pin because, why not. I just felt like I need some quirk. I was into it.

Saturday

Sunday was ME, ME, ME. Lazed in bed all morning then got up and posted a video of me dancing to Cardi B’s ‘Bartier Cardi’ on my instagram stories. Mess! The weather was begging for legs to be out, so I obliged with a white linen button up, ripped denim short-shorts and these rad (allow me, a lot of people use this word) tan leather tie ups. The shorts caused a bit of stir when I went to Rosebank Mall for a young toiletry shopping sessh. Probably too short for a holy day? Lol.

Easter Weekend Style

This past weekend has been a whirlwind of events, catch-ups and parties! So obvs I had to be dressed for every occasion.

Friday was super chill. Brunch, shopping and you know… a tattoo from Dakota Lee! Lol. My trusty Adidas trefoil black tee did the things along with red crop pants and my fave silver holographic platforms.

Easter Friday

Saturday was a WORLD TOUR! Fabric shopping at Oriental Plaza, a razzle at We Are One Music Festival at 1Fox, turn up at Feel Good Series at Dorkay and finally a “wind down” at Issa Vibe party at The Tennis Club. It was a lot. All that in navy Madison boots! My feet were mush. I was unable by 3 a.m. I played around with masculine and feminine with a burgundy polo shirt and sexy silky vintage adidas track pants. A winner!

Saturday

Sunday I failed to save the picture I took. Try imagine it… Salmon pink adidas trefoil tee, black crop pants and black paint splashed Asics Gel-Lyte trainers. Sunday was a continuation of Saturday… Brunch, birthday picnic, Great Dane for Sunday Roast and ended the day with some faves at Kool Out.

Monday was the chillest of them all! I visited my friends new baby Logan in a white Levi’s branded tee, black leather jacket and a knee length black skirt finished off with all-white leather Converse All-Star sneaks. I sound like I’m talking about a recipe… anyway I love long weekends! #HeIsRisen
