I can't feel the cold anymore

Sunday, 11 March 2012


This is what I wore to my Lunch Date with my sister Kezia. Any time spent with my sister is full of laughter, and she is the only person in the world I can fully let my hair down with. We hadn't seen each other in what felt like forever, because of numerous Uni deadlines we both had, and straight after we completed them we were able to chill and catch up! She took these shots of my outfit. I really wanted to wear this cool and laid back dress with a waterfall detail, something I love very much. I thought it went perfectly with this lipstick (Carthage by Nars). The weather was perfect enough to throw on just one layer, so I chose to wear my leather jacket.

Soft and feminine, but with and edge...You know that's my thing right? ;)

Dress : Traffaluc, Zara
Belt : H&M
Jacket : H&M
