I’ve loved rounding up this Valentine’s day gift guide because I feel like I can really indulge in my love of blush pink without any shame! Most of the gift are fairly simple – I say save the big ticket items for anniversaries and birthdays – but their just kind of token of appreciation I’d appreciate. I hope that there is something in here for you too!
Whatever you’re planning this Valentine’s day – breakfast in bed or a romantic picnic- you’ll want to make sure you’ve got the essentials. Lace, gold, chocolates and blush.
Someone at work recently asked whether I’ll be sharing anything of my wedding on social media, only to realise that I have kept quiet without exactly intending to! Whilst I don’t want to share every last detail with everyone, I think there are a few things that might be of interest to some of you- whether you simply love weddings or are planning one yourself.
I have to confess, doing all of the planning yourself can at times become slightly overwhelming and stressful, but nothing that a cup of coffee and a good planning session can’t cure!
I recently wore this super comfortable look on one of the hottest days in Stellenbosch. It was actually a pretty good day as we met our wedding photographer and tried a pretty good new-to-us coffee place.
I bought this pair of elastic waisted pants for long-haul flights last year andI’ve actually gotten a lot of wear out of it since. I was slightly weary of elastic pants adding loads of extra bulk, but as these are very lightweight it isn’t really a problem. Besides they are just so damn comfortable that I don’t mind if it gives me thunder-thighs.
The shirt is one of my all-time favourite bargain buys (Mr Price) and I bought the handbag in Italy. It is definitely one of my all time favourite bags as it is great for sneaking snacks for the movies and it is real leather.
I can’t imagine I’d ever be able to sacrifice comfort for style, so I am really glad I found the perfect middle ground. And it is nice not to wear jeans for once…
What is your favourite weekend look?
