Winter Whites & Faux Fur

Hello again readers, 

The weeks are zooming by and we are entering the last week of the Ramadaan. I hope it has been a fulfilling and rewarding month for all those observing the fast and that you have attained the objectives set for yourself. I am pleased that this has been a really productive month for me, although a bit sad for my boys as they near the end of the fast they also realise that it marks the end of their school holidays.
They are suffering with immense cabin fever, and my teens are chomping at the bit just to get out, even if it does mean running errands with me. My youngest one is a bit more relaxed, since he is an avid baker and cook, so he spends his time with me in the kitchen. We have also had numerous chess sessions, and he's been lucky enough to have several play dates, I suppose young kids forget that they're fasting and will have fun regardless. The older ones on the other hand, not being able to play sport, or socialise with their peers have had a very slow holiday... at least they will return to school well rested!
Today's look is one featuring faux fur (my latest obsession) and some Winter whites.
Wearing white in Winter has become a thing and I just love it because it brightens up the spirits, especially since our Winter sun is scarce in Cape Town. This high waist boyfriend jean from Country Road is from last season and the faux fur gilet another piece bought abroad in December.
The leather boots are also last season and the leather belt bought three seasons ago on a Dubai sale.
