One of my favourite hashtags is #lovesummerhateeverythingelse.
That's exactly how I feel. Winter, to me, is just a dead zone where I momentarily pause my life, and wait with bated breath for summer to rear it's gorgeous head.
Maybe it's just me, but I follow a lot of people on Instagram that are #blessed to holiday overseas at this time of year, where the northern hemisphere is smack-dab in the middle of summer. (So around 23 degrees then, haha)
I am filled with envy, but as I type this with hands so cold I am sure frostbite is imminent, I will try to sweeten things up, by shopping some of these #blessed characters' Insta pics in real life.
Lets inject some summer into our winter:
Yes, nothing says #yachtlife like a blue and white palette.
Zara's striped body suit, R359. Wear with high-waisted jeans, boots and a check jacket for a fun clash.
Poetry slip-ins, R899.
Add some sweet delights to your collection of accessories as you try to resemble our favourite Italian dessert.
Cotton On earrings, R149.
Yummy! Love these by Lichen & Leaf...
Retro tropical shirts will always be cool, okay. It's all in the styling (as with so many things). Add one to your collection and style it with your winter uniform for a burst of WOW!
At the Old Biscuit Mill for around R250.
Also available at most vintage and second-hand stores countrywide.
Shop this shirt, it's not vintage, but looks it. MRPxProject, R139.99.
