o is for outfit, colour blocking

today i woke up to a grey cape town.
i can't believe autumn came so quickly!
to fight off the grey weather i decided to do some bright and awesome colour blocking.

• blue, black and white patterned blazer
size 10

• royal blue button up shirt, long sleeved
(i pushed up the sleeves)
it has a few small little black marks on the left shoulder, but it's hardly visible on the fabric
size 8

• bright green high waisted pants
has a small mark on the waist band, right at the top, barely visible
waist 74cm
length of pants 105cm, waistband to seam
size 10

• black and blue belt
85cm long
fits easily around the waist

o is for outfit, design indaba

after the crazy busy weekend, my boyfriend and i went to the Design Indaba Expo.
much to my dismay my boyfriend banned me from my crocheted crop top, as it is too see through :)
as my boyfriend he gets to say that some outfits are too risque, but that's part of why i love him, he is a protective knight in shinning armor.
anyways back to the point, so i changed into this really fun printed silky vintage dress with a matching belt and a solid wooden handbag, which i love!
both these items are so unique and amazing.
lucky for me, the ELLE Decoration team was looking for someone in patterns, and voila along came i!
so i got snapped and i'll be up on the site later this week.
i'm beginning to love these style blogs.
it's my third time on one this year!
just thought i'd share this fun quirky outfit with you. 
i know my style is a bit out there, but that's why you'll always find unique treasures in my closet
