Cape Malay Exploring

My week in South Africa has been so very magical what a fascinating, beautiful part of the world. Here is a little fashion diary and story of my favourite day exploring the city. 

We woke up bright and early to start our day exploring the Cape Malay region, a suburb next to the city. We learnt all about the history of the brightly coloured area, housing many Asian slaves years ago. We ended the morning on a class cooking a traditional curry, it was delicious. 

Previously in the week mum got chatting to a wonderful American lady Britt Dyer  who is living and working in South Africa carrying out missionary work in the townships of Delft. She invited us to visit the soup kitchens, homework clubs and some of her friends homes. Experiencing true South Africa πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦. The kids were so happy in the centres practising their English with us and they loved the snapchat filters on my phone. 

The work Bettaway community church are doing is vital in these communities. Please read up and help support them by visiting

Lavender Lace

One of my favourite brands at the moment is Little Mistress. They have the most gorgeous feminine dresses including this lavender lace number. The colour is soooooo yummy, the perfect look for a spring wedding. Teamed with my favourite D&G lace, bow courts and delicate jewellery.

Everybody's starry eyed

 Im obsessed with Stella McCartney star flatforms but after way touch splurging recently I couldn't justify spending just over £600. So when I saw these high street copies I had to snap them up. They look so funky and fun and add a quirky side to any outfit. Teamed with my new fave ripped jeans and this super cool bridal blouse.

Spring has landed

Spring is here which means one thing in my fashion world, bring on the floral print dresses. 

Never shy away from wearing dresses when their is still a chill in the air. Boho styles like this look great with winter boots and chunky knits.

Gothic Princess Vibes

Im obsessed with this look, channeling my inner gothic princess. Don't be afraid to mix true night pieces with casual separates for a more relaxed look. 

These statement mules are this seasons must have accessory. Although they set you back a small fortune, for me they are money well spent, you can team them with almost anything to make any outfit pop. A bargain alternative that I found on the high street can be found HERE.

Shoes (similar option)
