{Outfit of The Day} Come in with the Rain

Hi Pretties,

The past few weeks we've had a terrible heatwave in Joburg, and to say I breathed a sigh of relief on Friday when the weather forecast told me that we can expect a rainy weekend .. is an understatement!  I live for rainy weather, and I think I'm one of the few people who doesn't mind cloudy and over-cast days, don't get me wrong, of course I love a bit of sunshine too!

PS - If you wonder where my oh so cryptic post title is from, it's a song from Taylor Swift.  I am such a massive fan of hers and ever since I bought her CD Red, have been listening to it non-stop.  She is such an amazing artist, and I thought this title is just so fitting for this post.


I tied two scarves together to create different texture plus give it volume, both scarves are pretty, but they're "small" so tied together it creates a really lovely look.



Jeans:  Sissy Boy
Grey Top:  Cotton On
Grey Cropped Jacket:  Legit
Scarfs:  Mr Price
Shoes:  Mr Price
Bangles:  Mr Price
Eye Make-Up:  Urban Decay Naked 2

I am in love with these jeans, which I got for my birthday last year!  They're amazingly comfortable, I love the wash of the jeans and despite the ripped areas, this beauty will take you from day to night (and yes I've worn them to work with a smart top and cropped blazer), and in Sissy Boy fashion the pockets on my bum are embroided with gorgeous studs and diamante's.  If you've got a curvy bum/hips like me, Sissy Boy jeans are super flattering, although a bit more on the expensive side it is totally worth having a pair or two in your closet.  I just adored this outfit, the top from Cotton on has amazing stud detailing on the shoulders, and if you really wanted you could wear this with pumps or sandals, but as I'm only 5ft 2in I prefer high heels as I do have a tendency to look child-like wearing flats, and these shoes from Mr Price are so comfy, I've worn them to several shopping trips and my feet thanked me afterwards ;P

So we went to my parents for game night, and I have to say I am quite competitive when playing games especially 30 Seconds ... and not to boast or anything ;) but is it a co-incidence that I was on the winning team twice although I had a different team player both times?  LooL ... It truly was a fun night with lots of laughter and inside jokes, and I surely won't betray my brothers trust by telling you all how R-Rated one of his explanations were, leaving us all in fits of laughter and a story to tell for years to come.

Oh, before I forget to mention, you'll notice I took my extensions out, that was just after we got back from a short trip to the coast in December.  I removed them at home and my lovely husband helped me oh so patiently, it only took about an hour to remove, and I was totally chuffed to see that my hair had zero damage from the micro ring/link hair extensions!  In fact, after I washed and blow-dried it my hair felt super soft, so if you're interested in getting hair extensions I would definitely recommend you get these, and if you're wondering where I got them from have a little read here.

I hope you all have a fabulous Sunday!

Love,
xoxo
