How to dress for a cold summers day
January 1st, 2018 | Style
In today’s post I will be sharing great tips on what to wear on a cold summer day.
By now you are well settled into 2018, I hope that you are staying true to your 2018 goals and resolutions. Cape Town is mighty toasty now, we are also currently facing a water crisis, that combined with the noisy construction work at my doorstep is doing my head in but I will not be deterred from writing this post and equipping you with great style tips in this ‘how to dress for a cold summer day.
If you’re from Cape Town, then you know this situation all too well.
The Mother City is located at Africa’s most southern tip, I’m no geographer but somehow this means we are often treated to four seasons in one day.
On Sunday friends and I went to the Waterfront shopping center for lunch. I stepped out of my apartment and was met with cloudy skies but comfortably warm temperatures, by the time I arrived at my destination it was cold, rainy and windy. It wasn’t all doom and gloom though, because I was prepared and dressed for this very scenario. This is what I wore:
If ever you feel as though your outfit is starting to look a bit flat and too ‘matchy’, break the monotony with an interesting texture as I’ve done.
I felt that a jacket and turtle neck would be too warm indoors and I didn’t want to lug around a coat, so I opted for these thigh high boots from YDE Sexy With Attitude thigh high boots. The boots have blocked heels adding a glamorous casualness to the outfit that couldn’t be achieved by pointed toe heels.
I also love this Peaky Blinders hat – it is cute and trendy, this was initially for a costume party, but I’ve been able to repurpose it repeatedly. Old but never gets old. I bought it from my favourite thrift shop Voom Voom Vintage in woodstock.
There you go, thank you so much for stopping by xoxo.
