Wearing printed things is somewhat alien activity to me because I don’t usually crave for motives or patterns. I do love stripes and gingham but they are about the extent that I would go without getting too far out of my comfort zone. I was browsing the internet randomly before Christmas (what’s new?) and when I laid my eyes on the above piece by Vanishing Elephant, something clicked. The print was modern, the colours pleasant and the material looked great for the stinking heat that was to come. I made a rather quick decision and before I knew it, the dress arrived, just in time before our trip to Cape Town.
So there I was, all oily, sticky, scruffy and feeling rather self-conscious in crowded Kalk Bay. I felt gross, but maybe I shouldn’t have let those feelings bother me as much as they did.
||SILHOUTTE||Loose, flowy, and utterly comfy. I’m really loving the maxi-midi length of the dress. If you look properly at the print, you would see human faces all over and I thought that’s quite clever! Like all summer dresses, it’s easy to throw on and it is a dress that I have reached for quite a bit already ever since we got back from our holiday.
||FOOTWEAR|| Brown and green somewhat make me look like a tree so black it is! I could not sing any more praises about my Ancient Greek Sandals!
|| JEWELLERY|| No need for complications. I just had my dainty WWAKE lineage necklace and Mazel ring that never leave my body nowadays.
|| ACCESSORIES|| My ROC Eyewear is my best friend, especially on tired and gross days. That day was one of those. TBH, I’m quite bored with my Rebecca Minkoff bag but I’m hanging in there, fighting off those feelings of wanting another black cross body bag. There’s nothing wrong with wanting another bag of course. There are just way too many things on my priority list right now.
I’ve recently learnt how to use Instagram Stories yay! It has taken me a while to even think about giving it a go but I think I’m hooked! The videos that I’ve created were TERRIBLE lol. Hopefully time would mend things (and skills). Go and check out my Instagram here! I think you would need view IG Stories on the app though.
What do you think about IG Stories? Are you having fun as well?
