Favourite looks from #Nmbfw

This October I attended my very first Nelson Mandela Bay Fashion Week and let me tell you what a beautiful production it was. Let's be honest, growing up in Port Elizabeth means that we often get overlooked when it comes to cool events.

The event was spectacular and the clothing even more so. I was amazed to witness the discovery of so many hidden gems. While I didnt get to attend all the shoes (some of us still has to work) I loved the ones I did attend however.

I decided to put just a few (there were way too many ) of my favourite looks in this post. All the designers were so talented and it was such an honour to see there new collections.

Please note: there were alot of other looks I loved but I decided to only post a few just to give everyone an idea of what #Nmbfw was like.

Enjoy the images!

The pants that stole my heart

Hey everyone!

I wasn't planning on sharing these pictures as part of a lookpost but I love the colour palette so much that I thought why not. I wore this outfit to run some errands the other day. For me, comfort is key. Now I hear you asking, who runs errands in heels? Let me tell you...these are by far the most comfortable heels I have ever worn.


I love wearing a body suit and I think that the waterfall cardigan softens the look and makes it slightly more casual. The material from the bodysuit and cardigan is super light weight and perfect for the warmer days.


These pants I got on sale at Legit and it was one of my best buys. It's got a bit of a stretchy legging feel to it but it is pleated in the front like chinos which gives it a more polished look. 


Everyone who knows me knows I am a sunglasses type of girl. These were my most recent purchase from The Fix (my favourite store at the moment ).  They have such nice things without having to break the bank. This was one of my favourite looks.

Thank you for taking the time to read. Drop me a comment with your blog link if you have one.

TILL LATER, LAUREN!

Suited

With the warmer days rapidly approaching over here in South Africa everyone is looking for easy ways to look stylish and comfortable. The summer months represents a carefree, effortless feel and the body suit definitely fits the bill.




A body suit is one of the most uncomplicated pieces to wear. There are so may ways to incorporate it into your style. You can wear it with jeans and sneakers to run errands, with a pencil skirt for date night or under a blazer to the office. The possibilities endless. 




Let me keep it real with you though, the only issue you might have with the body suit is when it comes to going to the bathroom. Lol..this is why I prefer one that clips between the legs instead of the bathing suit style. But that is entirely up to you.



I have rounded up a few of my favourite body suit looks in this post. Not only is the body suit sexy but it is also versatile.



How are you wearing your body suit at the moment? I would love to hear from you. And if you have a blog, drop me your link in the comment section.

Life Lately : October 2017

I love reading these life lately posts. Getting to know bloggers on a more personal level makes me want to keep up with their posts more often. Like catching up with a friend. I have done a few "life lately" posts in the past and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. Basically, its just me filling my readers in about what's going on in my life. Nothing specific really, just bits and pieces of my day to day. 



I have gotten into the habit of taking more and more outfit posts lately even though its just for instagram sometimes. I enjoy sharing what I wear and I'll definitely be posting more.


Clearly my son is alot better at this than I am. We spend alot of time together and I one of those moms who constantly takes pictures. Also, Xylon is one of the funniest people I know.


I recently did a post where I discussed Standard Bank's  "Business of Fashion Accelerator " program. It's an amazing initiative aiming to give fashion entrepreneurs an amazing opportunity.



I love doing beauty posts for my blog as well. These are some of my recent reviews. P.S. how stunning are those Almay eyeshadows.




I always makes sure I spend time with the people  I love the most. We love game arcades, restaurants and I always take pictures. This was also my first experience with bumper cars.

And that's it for today. I hope you enjoyed the little bit of insight into my life.  If you have a blog comment with the link. I would love to check it out.

TILL LATER, LAUREN!
