Missing Summer

Over time I have come to love all season. They all have special charm but for today I am missing that real South African summer feeling and I’ve been thinking about the December summer holidays I used to spend at home, running around in the garden and the hours spent in the swimming pool.

I’m comforted by thoughts of incredibly hot days, dry, silent air, late afternoon rain storms, shorts and dresses, green grass, endless high blue skies, hot bricks around the pool, falling asleep in the sun, warm skin, doggies sleeping in the shade … such wonderful summer memories.

So here are some other beautiful reminders of summer.

Knuckle Rings

The more rings you can fit on your fingers the better, that’s why I’m loving these.

Featuring the Spanish

When I first discovered fashion blogs I thought I’d died and gone to heaven and what added to my excitement was that the ones I first started following were Spanish, reaffirming my idea that they are probably some of the most stylish people on the planet. (From then on I always thought if I could change my nationality I’d most definitely be a Spaniard)

More than two years down the line I still follow those Spanish style blogs and think now’s the time to pay homage to my top 5.


1. LA’s Blog
This is the very first personal fashion blog I ever found and it never slips my mind to read it. She’s cute, she’s herself, she wears whatever she likes and she makes it look so stylish.



2. Lovely Pepa
Her outfits, her dog and her travels all brought together to provide everyday style inspiration.




3. Seams For a Desire
Always tanned and always gorgeous.


4. My Daily Style
There are two words for her style: feminine and classy



5. Bartabac
She wears the latest trends in every day looks.




People watching and outfit spotting

I love people watching, especially when said people are ridiculously stylish so I’ve put together my top 10 street style blogs to follow.

1. The Satorialist
Of course, the blog that started it all. Scott Schuman’s wildly popular site launched in 2005 and has been steadily growing since then.

2. Street peeper
One of the most influential street style photographers, Phil Oh’s site features a perfect blend of the street style “in crowd” (Elena Perminova, Miroslava Duma, Susie Bubble, Elisa Nalin, etc) and lesser-know but equally as captivating people throughout New York, Paris, London, Sydney and Milan.


3. Stockholm streetstyle
A packed-to-capacity street blog featuring young, attractive, and amazingly well-dressed folks from Stockholm and beyond.

10. Streetgeist
Streetgeist is a street style photography blog based in Los Angeles. Originally based in Athens Greece streetgeist was born in October 2008 as a street portrait project by two longtime friends that were inspired by other similar projects around the world.


Style: Sneakers

The first thing I noticed when we arrived in Amsterdam was how stylish everyone looked (and I mean everyone. Last week Friday I volunteered as a teacher at an international school and one of the 5 year olds in my company had Burberry pants on!) One of the trends that stood out most were the sneakers, Nike Air Max to be more specific. Worn with anything, these stand out.
