Charming nautical stripes

Hi lovely readers,

I’m getting into a slow start for 2015, but I have been so busy with guests, personal issues and visiting family that I have had little time for anything else.
This post has been in draft for a while, since it was a tribute post to all the lovely friends I have made through my blogging journey. It’s amazing that I have encountered such warm, open hearted individuals who bring sunshine, laughs and new experiences to my life. I am truly grateful.

Late last year, a few of these beautiful souls gathered at a picturesque little spot, Queen of Tarts, in Observatory to celebrate Leana’s (Hipstyler, Pretty & Ginger) birthday. It was such a darling, pretty little bistro, Amina (The All Seeing Lens) and I decided to do an impromptu photo shoot, directed by Naeema (The Jam Jar). It was so much fun, we literally took over the place, giggling and laughing which resulted in very few fashion blog worthy photos… these I think need to be more serious? Amina is really a breath of fresh air and , so I love having her take photos, and Naeema, the perfect director and perfectionist (but doesn’t like photographing humans despite her awesome photographic talent!). I really love how the pictures came out after all the shots we had to retake:-D 

Amina has done a post from the photographer’s perspective, read all about it here.

My outfit for the morning included paring a vintage blazer, from Vintage in the City, with a skinny jeans and my latest favourite lace up ZARA heels.

Enjoy the photos!

Outfit details:

Caio for now, 
RuBe xoxo
