One of the things I love the most about visiting Moscow is seeing how the city evolves with my every visit. It is a city that never sleeps and honestly I love it and feel like it’s my second home even though I didn’t grow up there. I wouldn’t mind moving there permanently because of the city’s energy and endless opportunities. The only thing I don’t like is the weather- this is supposed to be the middle of spring yet I am wearing an outfit fit for the South African autumn! I love this casual outfit and I couldn’t wait to share it with you guys and also show you a glimpse of the beautiful Moscow City.
Ever since autumn came about, I have been dying to buy the perfect pair of brogues, and I finally spotted them right before my trip at the Clarks Autumn Collection Breakfast! I fell in love with these black beauties, and while they were a little unusual for my style, I haven’t stopped wearing them. They are your classic Oxford style shoes and they will be your best friend this season! I wore them with everything- jeans, dresses, skirts, and they were on high rotation during my tip to Prague. At first I was worried that they would be a little uncomfortable and “hard” on the feet, but the they are so comfy and the fit is just perfect. At R2399 it is a pricey investment, but I know that they will stay with me for seasons on end because a shoe like this never goes out of style!
I paired the shoes with my latest favourite jeans that I spotted by chance at an H&M sale. They are a little high waisted (again, not my usual style but something that is growing on me) and have a boyfriend fit while still giving my legs a definition. They are super comfy to travel in as well! Another item that I have loved is this biker jacket from Forever New- it’s another investment piece because my previous one lasted me a good 4 years.
Of course I am an accessories girl so I had to finish the look off with a fab hat and some red lipstick. I am starting to feel naked when I don’t have my red lipstick on- it just gives me so much confidence!
We took these photos on the Borodino Bridge named after the Battle Of Borodino which took place in 1812 when Napoleons troops invaded Moscow. The bridge itself is a beautiful piece of architecture, and what I love about Moscow is how the old and the new come together. Just behind this bridge that has been there since 1812 is Moscow City- the new international business centre that represents the modern Moscow. In one photo the old and the new come together- isn’t it beautiful? From the other side of the bridge you can see a building that is often referred to as one of the seven sisters, a beautiful collection of buildings that were built during the Stalin era. They are spread all over the city and each of the buildings has a different purpose- this one currently houses the Ministry Of The Foreign Affairs. All of this combines and represents the Moscow- a city full of lights and history
