Printed Maxi Dress "House Dress" Gift from Saudi Arabia || Blackcherry Navy Handbag  (Link!) || Edgars Tan Ankle Boots || Woolworths Denim Jacket & Skinny Belt || Guess Gold Watch
I don't know about you, but sometimes transitioning your favourite summer pieces into winter can be a challenge. Luckily, adding a blazer, coat or jacket and boots can make it easier. Like I've done with classic pieces, my denim jacket and ankle boots. 
I received this printed "huis rokkie (house dress)" from my father in law on his trip to Mecca. He jokily said that he bought the cheap dresses as gifts and my mother in law, who also gave me a dress, bought the more expensive ones. Price didn't matter to me, as I adore the one he gave me, that I'm wearing. 

The colours are me and I've stepped out my comfort zone by adding a navy blue handbag. Yes, navy blue! This Blackcherry Tote bag is the perfect size to hold everything but the kitchen sink, I even have some of Maahir's things in there too! This is my first navy blue handbag, I'm more of a black, tan and beige handbag kinda girl and found it a bit challenging at first to incorporate in my wardrobe but I found that it replaces my everyday black handbag and pretty much goes with anything. I adore it! Here's a link to the beige one.
