My winter favouritesĀ 

Hey guys, my favourite season is around the corner so I decided to share a few of my favourite pieces with you all šŸ™‚ 

1. A bomber jacket I mean no one can go wrong with a good bomber jacket, this one is super padded and warm plus I love the flower details on the sleeves ( major trend ). This beautiful cropped bomber jacket is from Cottonon

2. Leather mini skirt
I think that this is just a cute piece for a night out ( paired with tights of course ). I tend to wear a lot of dark colours in winter, so this piece just adds some colour to my outfits. This skirt is from Zara

    3. An oversized denim jacket Everyone needs a denim jacket, that’s all that I’m going to say. This jacket is snatched from my mums closet šŸ™‚ 
    4. Ankle boots Ankle boots are just so cute and are comfortable. These bad boys are from Forever 21
    5. A leather jacket Every girl should have a leather/ faux leather jacket in their closet, they make an outfit look more polished and adds a little edge to your look. This one is from Zara

    Thanks for checking out this post, obviously I have way more winter favourites ( the list goes on ) but I just decided to share a few. Don’t forget to check out my social media ( tagged in the sidebar ). see you later 

    DIY fashion trends for Summer 2016Ā 

    Hi guys, I’m officially back from my exam break & I decided to come back with a DIY that are on trend and will ensure that you look good throughout this summer ( it’s summer here in Southern Africa). So let’s get straight to the DIY’s..


    The finished look

    First we have this super cute denim choker as seen on Kim Kardashian-West

    Denim choker on Kim Kardashian-West

    How to: 

    1. Cut the end off an old pair of jeans ( preferably wider legs). Make sure that it’s a little wider than you want your choker to be.
      Ps. I think that this choker looks best with a lighter shade of denim.
    2. Cut the piece of denim so that it is now open so you can attach the clip or button to one end. 
    3. Wrap the denim around your neck to make sure that it’s not too loose, then adjust it’s length the 2 ends and cut one to make sure that they overlap slightly ( only do this step if you wish to sew on a button, if not cut the 2 ends so that there is a little gap between them for the clamp to go )
    4. If you are using the clamps, poke a hole in both ends of the denim and put the clamps through each end and secure them in the holes with tweezers or pliers. 
    5. If you are using a button simply sew it on by sewing through the button several times to secure it. ( I recommend sewing a button on as it will be stronger
    6. And you’re done and have a fabulous choker. 


    This is the end look

    Next we have this super cool way to wear an old jumper inspired by the jumper skirt by thpshop.co 
    So if you’re tired of wearing your same old skirts or just want to add a little something to your outfit, this could work for you. 

    The sweater skirt seen on Janice Joostema

    Sweatshirt if by Atmosphere from Primark
    How to: 

    1. Take an old jumper  (make sure to use a jumper that you will never wear it as a sweatshirt again because you are going to stretch the neckline
    2. Stretch the neckline to make sure that it fits around your waist ( this is going to end up being a high waisted skirt
    3. Put the jumper on like a skirt and tie it loosely. Be sure to tie it without lumps from the sleeves popping out. 
    4. And your done 

      3. FRAYED JEANS 

      Here’s the finished product

      This trend is super simple and very easy to do yourself. 

      The trend is seen here on these jeans by rag&bone

      Jeans are the curvy skinny by Levis

      How to: 

      1. Put on your jeans and mark them at your ankles with chalk. 
      2. Cut them where you marked them. 
      3. Throw them in the washing machine and dryer for a nice frayed look ( they come out looking like store bought frayed jeans ) 


        This sparkly trend has been rocked by many celebrities including Kim Kardashian-WestKendall Jenner & many others. It is super girly and can completely transform a simple night out outfit. 

        Here the sparkly choker trend is seen on Kamilla Osman

        How to: 

        1. You start off with a simple iron on wedding dress accessories or sparkly ribbon which can be bought from any fabric store. However, today I’m going to use a sparkly headband that I found at Clicks
        2. Simply prick a hole in each end of the iron on embellishment and put on the clamps on both sides and secure them with tweezers or pliers. 
        3. And you’re done 

        5. FUR SLIDES 

        The finished product

        I know that this sounds more like a winter thing, but this trend is super hot for the summer. 

        How to: 

        1. Just take an old pair of regular slides, or brand new slides. 
        2. Next take your faux fur { this can be bought from any fabric store } and cut it to match the size of the upper part of the slides. 
        3. Next glue on the fur with super glue or use a hot glue gun. The let it dry and set. 
        4. Now give the fur a “haircut”, trim it to align with the slide or to overlap the top slightly. 
        5. You’re done and ready to go. 

             The lipstick that I’m wearing today is Stone by Mac cosmetics
