winter transitions

We’re bringing back our boots & blazers as winter has arrived in Tel Aviv.

I paired this black polar neck shirt with ripped denim jeans & black booties to match, and threw on my favorite plaid blazer for my outerwear. This pattern is still trending, after being seen everywhere during fashion week. I bought this one from Zara, as well as my pointed boots.

I was finally able to use one of my new bags, from Wood Grey, as seen used by Chriselle Lim, one of my #1 favorite bloggers. I found this website through her Instagram, & couldn’t help but order a few for myself.

fall #ootd pt. 2

Time to say goodbye to summer and welcome the fall season along with all of the newest & hottest styles from fashion week. Wide belts are a trend I’m loving for fall, & were seen all over runways of major brands such as Prada, Adam Selman & Michael Kors.

I picked these gorgeous high waisted trousers from Mango & paired it with this white deconstructed off-the-shoulder top (here). Deconstructed looks are also super trendy right now & I’m obsessed! 

I accessorized with black cat – eye sunglasses from Carolina Lemke & pointed heels from Aldo.

the Paper Bag look: SS17 LOOK #2

One of my favorite trends I noticed on the runways of top brands, such as Balmain & Stella McCartney, is the paper bag trousers. It’s all about loose fabric tied relatively high up on the waist, creating a slim silhouette & an elegant look.

This trend suits me specifically because it diverts the eye to my upper body as the pants are tied tightly to accentuate the waist. I paired these statement pants with a tight bodysuit. I finished the look with some loafers as this toned it down & made it a little more casual. There are many ways to take the trends off the runways and make it something you can wear from day to day, & that’s what I tried to achieve in this look.

Shop the look:

Bodysuit here, trousers here, shoes here, & bag here.

SS17 look #1

The trends for Spring Summer 2017 have sprung.

So many new designs were displayed on the runways during New York & Paris Fashion Week, and I loved it!
Whether its ruffles, sequins, shoulder pads, or any other outrageously designed sleeve, its in. It adds a whole new dimension & interest to the look as it turns heads & catches everyone’s eye. These two incredible pieces were shown on the runways of Yves Saint Laurent.

As soon as this trend came into fashion I started to imagine how I could pull it off in my own way, & when I saw this black & white shirt at the store I knew exactly how I was going to style it. I paired the checkered shirt with black jeans & loafers, something simple to create a more casual look.

I am in love with these shoes & the gold embellishment. Loafers are super trendy right now & they are a great pair of shoes to own because they can be worn in so many different styles. Another super cute accessory that everyone is obsessing over are the mini back packs. I grabbed this cute black leather one to finish up the look.

Topshop shirt, shoes, bag & jeans..

I have a lot more SS17 outfits planned, so stay tuned. X

LATE NIGHT THOUGHTS

“You’re too much,” he said. 

“You talk too much, love too much, feel too much. And I don’t know what to do with your muchness.”

“Just love me,” she whispered. “Ï’ll always be too much. I know I talk too much but most of the times I’m talking about you. I know I love too much but that’s the only way I know how to love. I also know I feel too much but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Because in my muchness is my soul and when I love, I love with all my soul. So love me with everything you have. Love me and my muchness even if it’s too much for you.”

This is an excerpt from a book I’m currently reading, A Book I’ll Never Write by Devon Eaton. I always remind myself to start reading again like I used to, & this book was a perfect choice because I can only read something that captivates me & freezes time for a while.

A Book I’ll Never Write is a combination of intense poetry written over a the years by someone who was clearly deeply & unconditionally in love. I feel that this book is something everyone should take time to read, it restores a little faith in our generation of technology.

I love this excerpt specifically because I strongly believe that indulging in your feelings & expressing every single one is what ultimately makes each one of us unique & different. Personally I love it when I am deep in my feelings, whether its love or anger or sadness because sometimes its the only thing that reminds me that I’m human & alive. Sometimes we get so lost in work or studying that we forget how to feel, & its upsetting because the ability to feel is what separates humans from the other beings.

Have you ever been so present in the moment that you feel like you’ve stopped at the peak of a roller coaster about to plunge of the edge, but you’re halted there for a split second?

Euphoria, maybe.

It’s something I live for. I cannot go more than a week or two without feeling lost & losing my sense of reality, because of the current situation I’m in. Being in a boarding school is one of the best things that’s ever happened to me, but it also restricts me to such an extent that I forget who I am & often find myself feeling numb & angry because I tend to distance myself from the certain things that make me who I am.

Reminding you to stay true to yourself & embrace every moment in which you lose yourself in your feelings, & appreciate that you.re lucky enough to experience such moments.

Be someone who feels too much or loves too much, the world needs more people like that.

Thank you for reading, & please keep on doing so as I have a LOT to say.

As we all know, the 74th annual Golden Globes Awards took place in the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills yesterday, 8 January 2017.

Looking through a ton of the images from yesterday’s event & the after party, I couldn’t decide who’s outfit was my favorite. I put together a few of the women that I thought were best dressed.

The first gown that caught my attention was that of Continue reading “Best Dressed: 2017 Golden Globes Awards”

Laced Up

To lighten up the vibe from my last post, I’m going to start including some fashion posts here on my blog. I feel like fashion plays a major role in who a person is, & allows them to be true to themselves. I feel like with every new outfit, whether it is high fashion or sweatpants & a T shirt, you still get to express your own unique style.

Lace & velvet are super trendy lately, so that’s what inspired me when putting this look together. I paired the look with white Nike Air Force trainers, which you can get here. Continue reading “Laced Up”

WINTER LOOK BOOK 2015

After a freezing winter in Johannesburg, I put together some of my favorite pieces to create 4 outfits from my favorite brands and created a winter look book.

It’s always important to me to be stylish but still comfortable & warm at the same time!

The trends that I spotted a lot this winter season were long coats, faux fur accessories, bomber jackets & pointed heels. In terms of colors & fabrics, it was all about the nudes.

Outfit #1

The first outfit is completely casual, but still stylish. I chose an olive green bomber jacket from Zara, and paired it with a plain white tee & Yeezy 350 sneakers. I love this look for a normal day out to the mall or just to run some errands. Continue reading “WINTER LOOK BOOK 2015”
