May Fashion Blogger Challenge: Day 3 - Something You're Wearing For The First Time

Day 3 - Something you're wearing for the first time

I woke up this morning to a beautiful rainy Stellenbosch - Winter is coming, people :) So, of course, it was the perfect opportunity to wear my new jersey dress! (Sorry for the odd angles on some of these photos - my camera's battery died, so I took all these myself with my phone.)

I've been looking for a jersey dress since last winter - and when I saw this one I fell in love. It's grey! And has "Fair Isle" style knitting! And, crucially, is short enough for me to wear! (That's the sucky thing about knitwear - it's nearly impossible to shorten properly.)

Add some simple sparkly jewelry (earrings and butterfly necklace both gifts - from my two best friends!) and bright lipstick (this one is Rimmel Lasting Finish in Heartbreaker... with a slick of their Lipstick Lock over).

A closer look at the detailing...

I also love these leggings - they're super thick (and opaque!) and really warm!

My new grey beret, to keep the noggin warm on the walk to campus.

And my absolute favourite black boots!


  1. Love the snowflake design :)

    1. Me too! I think I have a snowflake problem, probably because it never snows here...

  2. I love jumper dresses like these, they're so cosy and snuggly
