Sumer is in full swing here in Johannesburg, and I couldn’t be more thrilled about this beautiful weather. Sure the heat wave is a little bit much, but otherwise these beautiful Johannesburg days have been amazing. The sun goes up early and goes down only after 7, the nights are filled with a warm summer breeze and flowers are in full bloom. I felt like these pictures captured a Joburg summer so well, not in the suburbs but in the hot city, hence the Sex And The City vibes that are happening here in my outfit!
I’m sure if you are an avid reader of my blog you would know about my love and addiction to Sex And The City and Carrie Bradshaw. Every time I wear a tulle skirt I am reminded of the opening credits in the series and Carrie walking through the blazing New York City. New York still remains my dream destination, and I plan on visiting it in the next two years!
The top is also very Carrie Bradshaw, as that was one of her famous quotes in the series. When I saw it at River Island, I knew I had it to get it, because it is one of my favorites quotes of all time! I like my money right where I can see it- hanging in my closet! Given the fact that I spend a good portion of my first paycheck on brand new Christian Louboutins, I would say that I pretty much live by that quote!
I added some fun accessories to brighten the otherwise all-black outfit. These Dune shoes are very reminiscent of Carries famous Manolo Blahniks, so they go perfectly with the tulle skirt. I also added a touch of blue to the outfit which ended up complimenting the pink flowers so nicely (it was not planned at all!). My beautiful monogramed Dune handbag and a pair of Vogue sunglasses finished of this look. I am all dressed and ready for one hot summer in the city!:)
