Black Monday

I’m loving today’s cooler, rainy weather in Cape Town…it gives me the opportunity to wear these over-the-knee boots (again). I don’t know about you, but the weather is not helping with my productivity levels – all I want to do is curl up in bed with a cup of tea and watch the new Grey’s Anatomy episode I spotted on Hulu this morning!

I picked up this longer-length black shirtย over the weekend. We were in Bloemfontein for our annual family reunion, and Saturday morning while the men browsed the camping and DIY section at Makro, my Mom and I found some nice new pieces for our winter wardrobes. I immediately fell in love with this longer-length shirt – the mixing and matching possibilities are almost endless. Here are some outfit ideas:

  • Pair the shirt with skinny jeans and sneakers for a casual look.
  • Wear it as a dress with boots (like these over-the-knee boots) for a chic weekend look. Add a belt to the waist to create a tucked-in silhouette. You can also wear the shirt with pointed flats if you’re not in the mood for boots.

Or you can wear it like I did in the outfit photos below, with leather leggings and boots for an edgy but casual look. Take a look and let me know in the comments what you think of this look ๐Ÿ™‚

What I’m wearing: Long black shirt from Makro / Leather leggings from Woolworths / Over-the-knee boots from Bronx SA

This is my first blog post in a while and if all goes according to plan I’ll be updating the blog regularly again from this week. Over the last month or so I’ve taken serious steps to eliminate all time consuming projects and tasks that I don’t enjoy, and I plan on spending this ‘new’ free time on StyleDiary. Is there anything specific you’d like me to blog about? Chat to me in the comments, I’d love to hear from you!
