Weekend Mirror Style

I love me a new week. Leave behind the last and make the most of what’s ahead. I had a manic week last week but the weekend allowed for fun and alone time. Onward to my recap with my daily lewks. 😉

Friday: Fridays can be a jam at work. We hosted a technology day for our colleagues to get to learn what the nerds under CTIO do. I’m not saying I’m one of those nerds… but I helped with a colour coded presentation for my department. *shrug* I had fun with this lewk; A “masc” element with a vintage navy New York Yankees sweater, white button up from Asos, cute baggy looking grey pinstriped ankle length pants and red New Balance 373s. My first pair of NB’s before the obsession started. I randomly wore mustard and white polka dot socks because that morning I looked at the sneakers and wishing they had some yellow on them. Make it work.

Saturday: Friday went from after work drinks, to a great birthday dinner in Norwood, to a sweat inducing, house-party feeling good vibes only jol at La Santa to eventually a necessary underground after-after party at Toy Toy. I couldn’t Saturday until I had to meet friends at the Joburg Bubbly Festival in all black with a biker jacket, ripped at the knee jeans, Reebok classics and finished off with a multi-patterned monochromey scarf. Didn’t expect to have as much fun as I did at the fest, also discovered some new wines.

Sunday: Stayed in watching Netflix documentaries (they are always an easier watch then starting a whole new series) for most of the day until I got cabin fever and decided to grab a late lunch. BGR and Starbucks were my targets; bit of beef, splash of lemonade, little coffee. Sorted. Threw on black ankle length pants, black jaguar printed button up, denim jacket and my spacey reflective elite edition New Balance 580s. The glasses where for an extra bit of accessorising. Just nje, nothing serious. Got some air and went straight back to bed. Happiness.

Praise be for my next two weeks that will only be 4 days long thanks to Bushfire Festival out in Swaziland. Next week will be a Bushfire Special of weekend style. No mirror of course. Go forth and do the most this week. I can’t believe May is almost done. Wow.

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!
