Weekend Mirror Style

Fully back in the swing of things. New week, hopefully new moves. Losing my holiday glow already from being back at work. Yawn! I’m just glad it seems to be getting a little bit warmer. The last time I did a WMS post it was basically Game of Thrones up in Jozi. I don’t watch the show (don’t @ me!), but it always looks snowy and cold af.

Anywho… LEWKS!

Friday: Back at work, but it was Friday so not much work was done… Lesbi-honest. What did work though was the outfit I threw on. Started with the camo pants and eventually worked my way into this lewk with a pink Topman sweater over a white button up and tan Chelsea boots. The denim worked better than any other coat with these colours. 🙂

Saturday: 3 hours boozy brunch with my best, Sunni, under the winter sun was the best start to the day. I was pretty hammered from the bubbly and sunshine by the end of it. Best! Then I hit the burbs for a friends farewell. After my post about Clueless 30th last week I was inspired to do a white cropped sweater over a pink striped button up both from Cotton On. Cher Horowitz did a ton of these on the film. Lower half was my trusted ripped jeans and grey camo D+D loafers.

Sunday: Mellow day spent with friends for a cute 6 year old boy birthday. Getting dressed was a scramble. Black is always the easiest option for me when I have no idea what I wanna wear. Was feeling particularly femme so I did a black Puma crop with a black ankle length cotton skirt and grey wool jacket. Silver NBs with red laces added a bit of something something to all the dark colours.

Great weekend. Stayed off the streets on account of energy. But we shall rebuild! Have a goodie cuties!

Ok so I had some drinks on Saturday. There I said it! Hahaha. I should’ve known there was no way I was gonna do an art fair without clutching onto a nice little summin’ summin’. It was freezing so I clutched onto some Shiraz. So… so long Dry July. The weekend was fantastic nonetheless. No hangovers to nurse at least. Kept shit classy.

Friday: This was another disastrous morning of trying to get dressed. I wore so many layers also! Looked at myself in the mirror and called myself a genetically mutated onion. So many colours! Anyway… it made sense in my head. Now that I look at the pic I’m like ‘Ummm’. Layered half was a tan poloneck, denim jacket and a pink bomber from Adidas Originals. The more summery part (lol!) were the camo skinny chinos with pale pink Fila platform sneaks. I was dressed. That’s all.

Saturday: RMB Turbine Art Fair was a jam. I had my wine. Sipped it slow and enjoyed the art and lovely humans I ran into. There was a lot going on there I very much doubt I finished the whole thing. I looked cute perusing around in all black. The popping parts of this lewk were there dusty pink trench coat I got at a thrift pop up last winter and these sexy ass faux leather heeled platform boots from Zara. My thighs are still sore from this day. I don’t know how some of y’all rock heels on the daily!

Sunday: Errands, pick ups and more errands. That was most of my day. I put on a beret and everything. For what? Lol. Best part of the day was getting ice cream with my baby brother and niece albeit in Fourways. Jk, love it there 🙂 Catching up with my brother meant I had to watch the World Cup Final and learn about the players. Joy. Whatayagonnado? Lovely day in a white textured Chinese collar button up, faux leather jacket, ripped jeans and glossy piano black lace-up shoes. The beret from ivantage yakho was the real winner here.

Another seriously cold week in Jozi. July is out for terror. I got an icebox where my room used be! Stay warm. Look cute. Chew your food.

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.

Saturday (night)

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!

Weekend Mirror Style

This has to be one of my favourite weekends this year! I know… Quite a big statement. We are on month 5 and there have been some WEEK ENDS! This particular one was just a nice variation of catchups, me time and a whole lot of being out and being at 3 places in one day with 4 sets of different people. Pretty much sums me up really. Extroverted introvert who is a secret recluse but also super social. Helped to have my instastories to act like a fool on camera while being alone at home all day. Anyway… This is about the lewks! Leggo!

Friday: The 9 to 5, then met up with my Jozi fam for a young catchup. We tried out the new spot in Linden called Van Der Linde. Great food, amazing cocktails and beautiful space. Working and dining was done in a grey polo-neck, ripped jeans, brown boots and an olive coat. Loved this colour combo. Autumn realness!

Saturday: This was recluse-ville day. I only left the house to go to a yoga class in the morning. Unwashed, uncombed and unbothered. I did this in a white tee and these red harem pants. The lady at the Whippet was so confused because she’s only ever seen me styled out. Loved it. Alas, no pic in the mirror. Great day though.

Sunday: This was the world tour day. Brunch at The Richmond, Victoria Yards (which I’ll be doing a post for) and The Pan African Rum Fest and Kitcheners. A lot of a lot. Maybe I was making up for staying indoors all of Saturday, but I had one of the best Sundays ever. All with different people, vibes and energies. Thanks to everyone I saw, y’all are great! All this running around was done in my new fave, an imported white tee with PRADA and the Spice Girls printed on it, black ankle length pants, cute ass black leather platforms and a tartan print beret. Not gonna lie, I was living for this look. Spiced up my life for sure!

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!

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
