Even though Winter hasn't officially arrived in Cape Town, (think Sunny warm days) that doesn't mean I can't look forward to the colder days and more importantly winter fashion! I love winter... Bundling up in layers, cosy knits and boots, and lets not forget hot chocolate and warm desserts. Yum!

One piece I can't wait to wear is my military jacket with leather sleeves. Found the perfect one (above) from Woolworths and when the weather decides its ready for the cold, I'll be wearing this bad boy!
As seen on one of my style icons Olivia Palermo, this will be great addition to your winter wardrobe. I adore how she paired it with feminine pieces, which is how I'll be wearing it. Think a pretty blouse, or a dress. Love the mix of edgy with feminine!
But you'll see how I style it when I get to wear it. 

Apologies for the lack of blog posts, I contradicted myself by saying I'd be back and then I wasn't. Shame on me! I've been a bit sick (damn flu!) and am so busy with Baby during the day that there's hardly time for anything. If you could see me right now, you wouldn't want any outfit or make up posts though. I look a mess!

PS, What do you think of Trend Tuesdays? Like it or leave it? We all need some outfit or beauty inspiration now and then! I've already got my one for next week planned. ;)
