We experienced some good warm weather in Johannesburg this weekend. Hopefully this is the start of Spring with many more warm days, backless clothing, crop tops and long leisurely lunches on the porche!

This year has flown by so quickly, can you believe its July already. It dawned on me that soon it will be Summer, the weather will be unbearably hot and the nights will be mosquito infested. I want to really enjoy what is left of Winter - the chill in the air won't be there for much longer. Soon layering will be a thing of the past, sleeping in will be close to impossible. No more complaining about the about the cold; instead I will layer and keep the red cappuccinos close by.
About my hairI attempted the high afro puff - I think I just managed a puff. Because of the very coarse texture of my 4c hair I couldn't get the puff to be as high as I wanted. I have been keeping my hair moisturized with deep conditioning treatments every two weeks, for locking in the moisture I use sheer butter and black castor oil. I have done minimal protective styling during this winter - my hair doesn't respond well to weeks upon weeks of braids.

I am having so much fun with my hair, now that it is a year and 3 months old. It is a lot more versatile than when it was a TWA. I never thought I would say my afro is my best accessory!

My very good friend Faeeza gave me the neck piece and earrings in this post as a birthday gift. I could not wait to incorporate them into my wardrobe. To make them pop I wore them them with black on black.
For an office friendly look I will wear my high waist paints with a crisp white shirt and the neck piece.

The red wall behind me is everything. Today I wore one of my favorite colors- yellow and I paired the skirt with a denim shirt. It started out as a lazy Saturday; the plan was to lie on the couch and watch Dstv catch up all day. We later decided since that is exactly what we did yesterday, it would do us better to go out and about, so we went out for lunch and mingled with other humans...and I got to dress up.
