Shorts and scarf

Shorts and Scarf- My African Closet

If you can match your shoes and bags, then………

Happy Monday Lovelies,

If you saw my last outfit post, then you’ll be familiar with this scarf. Anyway,  I designed some culottes with the same fabric a while back, and I basically thought to myself, “hey self, why not wear them together?”. lol. I realise its a bit unusual but I don’t see why you can’t match your shorts to your scarf. I mean really, its like a twist on a 2 piece, isn’t it? Isn’t it? Commooonnnn, it totally is. No? Well, anyway, I like it. And I’m enjoying finding different ways to wear the same scarf. Maybe, I might attempt to style it again for next week. I think I’m loosing my mind about this scarf.

Heart of print!

Heart of print- My African Closet

It almost happened, no prints. GASP!!!

Happy Monday, my lovelies.

Hope you all had a great weekend. I attempted to do an all white look this weekend but my true colours, or in this case true prints just had to show up. You all know that my heart is made of African prints so I never leave the house without at least one piece. This time is was a gorgeous, oversized scarf that I folded into two and draped over my shoulder. My mum mentioned how the styling of the scarf is South African inspired. I didn’t have the time to ask her how and why and my quick research on the internet brought up nothing, so if there are any South African readers out here who know how the styling of the scarf could even slightly resemble any aspect of SA traditional dress, please do share as I would love to know.

Lil’ Red

Lil Red- My African Closet

Little Red riding through the hood

Hello my lovelies,

Spring is finally here in London. And I’m loving waking up to deceptively sunny mornings and cherry blossom trees. Its making me wear even more bright colours. I’m also really feeling wide leg trousers and cocoonish coats at the moment, as you can see from this and my last post, not really sure why. Despite the sun, its still quite chilly in London, so I decided to pair a favourite pair of bold pink print wide leg trousers with a bright red coat, because red and pink is just such a perfect combination, don’t you think? Plus this look in my head, invokes all the cuteness of a modern day little red riding hood, except this one will probably stomp the fox’s head into the ground

Loud colours and screaming prints!

Hello lovelies,

Hope everyone had a great Easter break. I know spring, for most people is all about pastels but my I’m currently feeling a lot bolder, so I just had to get out this cocoon jacket and pair it with a crazy bright pair of pants, yes, bright yellow wide leg trousers. Because, why not!?! Now, I need a pair of fuchsia pink pants, then I’ll be ready for summer. Because, once again, why not?

To womanhood and strength

Happy Monday Lovelies,

I have a very long essay planned in my head to go with this post but I can barely keep my eyes open, let alone think right now so I’ll just say a happy belated International Women’s Day to every female reading this post. We are strong and beautiful, we are smart and gentle, we are leaders and backbones, we are whatever we want to be whenever we want to be it. We have the power to create life and ability to sustain and nurture it. We are WOMEN!!
