I’m writing this post from the comfort of my bed today, not feeling that great and needed some alone time to reflect and rejuvenate before the busy month of July starts. Murphy’s Law however – that one day I take off I am stuck with a full house of people. Nothing ever seems to go according to plan these days, none the less I am willing to make today work and get on with what needs to be done. Work wise, this being our busiest time in the industry I will have very limited time to focus on my blog, however I have set some time aside and planned a few new shoots. Email me if there is anything in particular you would like me to chat about or any styles you would like me to try out.
Welcome to week two of my three week collaboration with Sport Unlimited. If you missed week one check it out here. As always I wanted to show case a tiny glimpse of my sporty side as well as work in a few winter essentials. If I haven’t said it enough I am a sucker for comfort and LOVE the color black. I threw together three of my favorite black pieces and styled this winter look around this gorgeous extra long puffer jacket.
What I love most about this All About Eve jacket is the style, fit and length (This extra long length is such a vibe). Not only does this beaut keep me warm, but it also creates a slimming silhouette and that is a MUST when layering up this winter. We are still in the heart of our chilly season and any Capetonian knows July is our rainy month, so wearing a jacket that is somewhat water proof and has a hood is another must. You honestly could never have enough jackets for winter, well at least I cant, which is why I like versatility when deciding to purchase a jacket.
I ask myself 3 questions:
- Do I like this?
- Will I wear it more then once?
- Does it fit me correctly.
Needles to say, this puffer jacket passed my 3 question test and I couldn’t wait to shoot this look.
Myself and Tegan shot this look as the early morning sun was rising which allowed for some amazing creative shots and complimentary lighting in each photo. Definitely one of my favorites.
Hope everyone ha s a productive week, and stay warm.
