End of a Chapter, Beginning of a New…

6
Good morning sunbeams,

What a raining day in Cape Town! I have officially finished my internship at Elle Magazine and yesterday we had a farewell tea in the office which included lots (and I mean LOTS) of cake consumption. Namely, a decadent chocolate gateau, cake pops and an amazing cheesecake topped with strawberries. I’m going to miss the team of #ELLEbelles so much! But, I am also excited to start a new chapter in my life. 

Next month I fly off to Berlin for a week with my man, and then I’m off to Greece for just under a month. I am so excited because I also get to see my baby sis (who I haven’t seen in 5 months!!) and then two of my best friends join us in the lovely island of Mykonos.

 This is an outfit I wore to work the other day. I may have borrowed this Tiger of Sweden coat from the #ELLE fashion closet 😉
I’m wearing:
White shirt-  Cotton On
Navy and denim twofer- Tally Weijl
Leather fit and flare skirt- Fashion Express
Stockings- Woolworths
Boots- ZOOM Footwear
Faux Fur Coat- Tiger of Sweden
Necklace- Aldo
Ring- Tessa Designs
Hand bag- Michael Kors

Last Day in Milano!

0
On our last day in Milan we devoured a a huge breakfast, packed and then took the metro to see The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci! However, once we got there we realised that you had to make a booking in advance to view this famous painting. The painitng is in a building next to the Santa Maria delle Grazie
church and so we looked around that instead which was of course exquisite, like most sacred buildings in Italy! We then caught our train to Florence at 12.

I wore a black cotton high waisted skirt (H&M), a army green crop top (Cotton On), black espadrilles (Asos), my black and gold chain bag (Aldo) and a thick matte gold chain necklace (Forever 21).

Art Jamming

These photos of our little stay at Asara Wine Farm and Hotel. It’s so beautiful, our room looked onto a huge lake and onto the extensive vineyards. The breakfast was SO yummy, we all had three or four courses (talk about a big breakfast! Haha). I started with some fruit and a mini berry smoothie, followed with a croissant, smoked salmon, olives and Belgium waffles! Then we spent the day in Stellenbosch, looking at art galleries and small boutiques and then met up with family friends for lunch. A great day spent with the family! 

My outfit was a little retro. In the past few years I have been a dark blue jeans girl but I decided that I’m loving the light ones at the moment! These jeans and the print tee were purchased at Cotton On recently. The red bag with the silver studs was bought ages ago at Pull and Bear. It doesn’t go with everything which is why I haven’t worn it much but I decided this was the perfect opportunity. And of course complete with my Promod sneaker wedges and H&M leather and velt jacket!
