Hello again dear Readers,
And Happy Friday :-D
We have had a gorgeous week, a complete turnaround with great weather all around. When the weather is balmy, and the kids jump in the pool for an early evening dip it sure feels like Summer is here. It’s the only time of the year when the schedules start easing up, when they start feeling the fatigue of a full year of a minimum 3 times a week intense sport training. They start looking forward to that annual 6 week sport break, where they get home earlier and have no cares but to cool off from the stifling heat.
But reality actually means that exams are looming, intense revision and study need to start and the house first goes into shutdown for that period. So until the schedules start easing up in the next few weeks, I will be the study timetable policeman - ensuring enough snacks and healthy meals are readily available. Their only breaks being for the last sport practices or gym sessions, time out from the books and the occasional swim. All these measures prepare them for a life of discipline and deadlines and projects - as these never really come to an end, they just morph into work assignments.
As the exhausted Mom, I start looking forward to holiday breaks and looking for ideas on getaways. It’s one of the few things that keep me going until the end of the school year approaches. I crave the smell of braai, sea and the need to do nothing else but catch up on reading and maybe prepare a meal or two. For now, I will settle for reading in between driving shifts, and start slowing down my consulting and enjoying the Summer air by the pool while the kids study…it’s a step towards the holiday season!
Today’s OOTD, features the House of Bespoke by WH fringe dress. And while the fringe trend has grabbed my attention completely, it has been hard to find a piece which fits in with my personal style. This dress is the perfect Summer item as its light (the suede is a very thin fabric) and perfectly on trend. The range has a few fringe items which totally pull off the Bohemian trend. It’s available on the online store, but even more exciting is that the range will soon be stocked at The Space in Cavendish from 1 November! There are many shoppers who prefer to touch and feel and fit an item rather than buy it online… Well House of Bespoke will now be readily available and accessible to the Cape Town market by Monday.
Happy Fringe Shopping!
