the prettiest of blooms

Nothing says spring / summer like a burst of beautiful florals! Last week we attended Poetry’s summer 2016 preview at CAAM Gallery in De Waterkant where we were treated to three floors of gorgeous fashion installations including the most amazing floral creations by @blomboy (Alwijn, you’re just too good!). Although Poetry’s latest collection features a lot of floral prints, you’ll also find crisp whites, classic navy and, of course, must-have stripes.

summer with cotton on

Cotton On Body is launching something new this summer. In surfer and scuba-influenced fabrics like neoprene and mesh, with functional, sports-inspired detail. It’s a swimwear range designed for a girl with an active lifestyle. Something we plan on having this summer… in between lounging with G&T in hand, of course.

Whether it’s paddle boarding, surfing or a morning beach run, these pieces combine the best elements of swimwear and simple activewear. Think: industrial zips, high necks and racer backs. Love it.

shoes, glorious shoes…

One of the (many) things we love about summer is shoe shopping! Here are some of our top picks…

We’re loving the full bloom floral campaign at the Edgars Shoe Gallery stores (Bloem, Benoni, Jozi, Chatsworth, Phalaborwa and Umtata). These stores, with more to come around SA, offer a ton of awesome shoe brands including Steve Madden, Aldo, Polo and Sissy Boy. So get to your nearest and invest in some beautiful, bright shoes! Also, can I just mention that this awesome campaign was executed by John Brown Media SA – a very cool company, and where I work on Edgars Man, lucky me!

If you’re a little wary of too much colour, perhaps a walk on the wild side is in order? Locally made Cinnamon shoes are way up there on our list of ‘must-haves’, especially these animal print ones. View more of the spring/summer ’13 collection here (plus, if you pop a pair of used children’s shoes in your courier bag when your new Cinnamons are delivered, you’ll get 15% off your purchase and the kiddie shoes will be donated to Nkhensani Orphanage). Nice!

Metallics are big on our radar for those days when we’re running around in jeans and T-shirts with our mama hats on. These Nine West flats in the season’s favourite metallic, rose gold, will do just fine 🙂 (they’re also available in silver).

Happy shopping!
