Happy Monday, lovelies! I hope everyone had a good weekend? If you’ve checked out my social platforms you’ll see I had a great one because one of my closest friends, Aisha Baker, finally married her guy, Wayne Parnell! The wedding was such a secret, we had so many fun/stressed moments leading up to the day, threw her the coolest BeyoncĂ© themed surprise shower and we couldn’t share any of it – hopefully she will though, it was all so beautiful! I get super excited for people when they embark on this journey. I loved my life before I was married, but having Malick as my family now just makes it so much better.

I loved both my outfits for the wedding (yes, that’s normal for everyone to have two wedding outfits in my culture – I’m Cape Malay), so hopefully I’ll get to share that with you guys soon! Lisa and I were planning on shooting it today but apparently it’s raining at the time we wanted to do it.

That being said, I was sad I didn’t have Lisa with me in JHB last month to shoot my SAFW looks, and this one right here was one of my favourites! Both of the main pieces are limited edition collaboration pieces and I LOVE them! The top is Balmain X H&M and the shorts/skirt/skorts are from the HYKE x adidas collab. You can still shop the shorts and see me living my best shmodel life here. I called this post ‘Warrior’ not for any deep and meaningful reason but simply because this top is military inspired (#BalmainArmy) and the shorts are samurai inspired. At SAFW I originally teamed the look with lace up heels, but I kinda prefer them with these boots now! All that’s missing is my sword…

ANYWAY. It’s Monday, ie: AFF day, so I need to get ready to head to the office. Wishing you all a successful week ahead!
