The increased amount of pictures of fashion bloggers wearing monotone clothing with sleek designs and simple textures has flooded my Bloglovin' feed. And I am all for it!

This weekend Matthew and I took a trip up to Franschoek to celebrate our three year anniversary. Our day was filled with markets and wine tasting. We were fortunate to have perfect weather for our little getaway.
On Saturday, Cape Town reached 35 degrees! As much as I love warm weather, it was just too hot. I had no choice but to wear a dress, the less amount of clothes, the less hot and sticky I felt.

It has dawned on me that next year I am most likely going to enter the work environment. As much as I love to wear track suit pants the whole day, I don't that will accepted when I start working.

This look is a typical outfit that I would wear to university on a warmer Autumn day.
This outfit makes me feel like I am about to attend orientation at Oxford university. I think it is the combination of my brown brogues and white shirt. I have been obsessed with getting a white shirt for a while now. I searched for months, but nothing quiet lived up to my expectations.
