Weekend Style Crush: Nude Trench Coat

June 11, 2016

This weekend happens to be exceptionally cold in the Cape – possibly the coldest it’s been since the temperature started to drop in April. Apparently, I hear, it is snowing somewhere on the mountains and all I can think of is snuggling up in bed with a Sylvia Day novel and hot chocolate. Unfortunately this is not immediately possible for me, because well, I’m a mom. So to keep me warm during my rush from one kiddie activity to the next, the mall, work and dates with my man, is my new found love the trench.

A few weeks ago someone told me my nude trench I was wearing that day, makes me look extra hot. Which I thought was great because this is exactly the objective I was going for when I bought it. However, this was not the “hot” he was referring to. It apparently made him think of a femme fetale showing up at his hotel room with nothing on but a nude trench coat. This got me laughing out loud, but then it also made me think about the sexy connotation the trench coat possess. It automatically by definition brings a fierceness to any outfit.

The origin of the trench coat dates back to the first world war and was primarily worn by the highest ranked military officials. Since then it’s become a fashion staple and will most likely remain a classic piece in many a closet for all time.

The online fashion outlet Superbalistย has them in all shapes and sizes, colours and prices. However, this is but one of many stores around the country currently stocking these gems. You can basically get them everywhere. Whatever your budget, it is definitely worth the investment, simply because it goes with absolutely everything and can be worn for every occasion. I have included below my favourite looks and I know they will inspire you too!

Weekend Style Crush: Oversized Shirts and Shorts

February 20, 2015

With the cold fast approaching and myself not quite ready to say goodbye to those lovely lazy Summer days yet, my style inspiration for this week has got to be the ever-faithful shirt and shorts. In a smart, sexy way it welcomes the prospect of Winter, yet it’s not exactly ready to leave Summer behind just yet. That just about sums up my mood right now. ย A very practical ensemble that easily appeals to both young and older and is pretty darn comfy for mums on the go ๐Ÿ˜‰
