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. 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
