It’s been a crazy busy time for me and I think pretty much everyone. With season events kicking in, work piling up before Christmas and a new home to maintain, I’m constantly wishing there were more hours in the day! I find myself with a new found respect for those couples who work, have kids, hobbies, their faith and still manage to prioritise date night. Epitomising the Libra star sign, a balanced life is everything in my world.

With this outfit, I figured it’s about time I shoot this shirt dress in an actual look post, instead of just on Instagram. On social media and whenever I wear it, everyone asks where its from, and it was a lucky¬†impulse buy from Primark in London when I was there in September. It’s literally my best buy in a long time and surprisingly versatile – you can see how I wore it differently here and here. I bought these shoes from Forever 21 during the same trip, after seeing Brett Robson had bought them in New York a few days before. I fell in love through her Instagram and had to go and find them in Oxford Street. They’re so unique and genuine leather, which you know by now is a material I hate compromising on!

And speaking about my favourite material, my awesome backpack is the first of many pieces by new leather artisans, Gaia. It’s big, it’s genuine leather, it’s proudly South African and it carries everything I need and more! If you’re interested in getting your hands on one, email me directly and I’ll put you in contact.

Last stretch til the end of the year!
