If you like it then you'd better put a [Bow] on it

Forever New dress and clutch | Europa Art shoes | Mr Price Bow | Forever 21 earrings | Michael Kors watch | ring from Florence

My dear Grant buys be such lovely things.  This outfit is entirely from him.  He came around on Saturday while I was studying with a huge shopping bag just for me!  Isn't he sweet?  I love this dress!  The little cap sleeves are so dainty and elegant.  I love the dropped back and the detailing.  White is so uplifting  and with summer on it's way dress will definitely be making appearances around town.

Fresh Perspective

I've been feeling a little down lately for someone who's always so positve and it has not been fun.  I have two months left of my degree and I'm so nervous, anxious, stressed, etc.  I have a wonderful support system and I need to draw love and confidence from them to carry on.  I always think how privileged I am to be able to study and have eyes to read and hands to write.  I'm so blessed.  It's tough but I know deep down I can do it.

Milk braids and Maxi dress

Rage dress | Jay Jays jacket | Woolworths sandals | Michael Kors watch | Forever New bracelets |  H&M earrings | necklace from a shop in Monaco
It's clear skies and Spring days at the moment which means its perfect weather for maxi dresses.  They are so comfy and easy to wear that I thought this combination would suit my day just perfectly.

Love at the Lamp post

My sister was asked to her (now) boyfriend's matric dance.  She was so excited - what girl doesn't enjoy an occasion to get dressed up and have a fancy time?  None I say.  In my family we get very excited for one another and naturally we all tagged a long to see everyone looking so smart.  Doesn't my sister look gorgeous???

Happy Monday everyone!

Currently obsessed

So this is my staple at the moment.  It doesn't matter what you decide to put on underneath but wear a gorgeous statement necklace and waves in your hair and you're ready to walk out the door and take over the world.  So glamorous, so sophisticated, so refined.  What more could a girl want?

For those who noticed I've been neglecting my blogging duties (sorry, Johlet ;), I have indeed been MIA.  I've been studying hard and the stress has not been a good look.  Also I'm currently between two extremely painful dentist visits, dentists being ranked highest on my short list of very scary things.  I'm not complaining, however, because I realise how lucky I am to be able to have a degree behind me and have the privilege of dental care.  Too blessed to be stressed I always remind myself.

To say I have been neglecting my blogging duties can be extended to general, overall, neglect.  My friends don't remember what I look like.  Neither did Grant.  Lucky for me he can be so romantic and whisked me away to the Drakensberg this past weekend knowing that I could afford to take a break from the books.  How sweet is he?  I had no idea and boy does this girl love surprises.  We rode horses, hiked, ate too much and caught up on some beauty sleep.  Bliss.

Anyway, for those who don't follow me on Pinterest already, please do!

P.S.  Is anyone good with illustrations?
