It’s winter over here in South Africa. Some days are cold and my joints hurt and some days you forget it’s winter and the weather is sunny and beautiful. This, of course, makes it easy for me to dorn my summer clothes like this lavender mesh skirt. The mesh trend is currently a favourite of mine. I love anything lace or see-through.

This may be deja vu because I’ve used the quote before in a previous post but it was true then and it remains true now. Dressing well to work not only shows you value yourself and your work but it also boosts your self-esteem. I know this for a fact. When I am not looking my best, I don’t feel as confident as I do when I put some effort into my appearance. Not to

Undoubtedly, each of us sees things differently. The optimist sees the cup half full and the pessimist sees it half empty. But what colour is this dress? Do you see orange or mustard yellow? I threw this question to my followers on Instagram a few days ago and I was stunned by their responses. 98% think this flared sleeve dress is mustard yellow. The tag on the dress also claims mustard yellow but it is orange! Even though I am not the most skilled when it comes to identifying colours, I cannot
