Look du jour

Hi lovelies

Well I know i have been a bit quiet on my blog, to be honest I was brainstorming on what to write about, how to write etc. It’s also difficult to find inspiration when you have two teething babies to tend to. Anyway today I’m sharing my look of the day. 

I am dressed in a simple yet chic outfit and I thought it’s worth sharing with you guys. The color coordination is amazing, it’s simple yet sophisticated. As you know I wrote a post on camel coats, I really just love them. What better way to wear camel coats than with all black pieces. All black is such a statement color that will always make you look amazing and elegant without trying too much. When you are going somewhere and you don’t know what to wear it’s always best to reach for your black dress or pants. All you have to do after is give it a punch by adding a bright color lipstick. Otherwise if you like natural lips just throw any color jacket on and you are dressed to kill.

 I’m carrying a gorgeous bag from MOA Paris. They sent me this bag to review and I absolutely love it. When looking for a handbag we always look for a good quality bag that will last us a lifetime. We always think the more expensive the bag, the better the quality. In most cases this is true but in this case it’s not, this bag costs 40€. The quality is amazing, it is well designed and well stitched. If I don’t mention the price one would assume it is expensive. So next time you go bag shopping look around the low priced bags, there is quality within them. 

I am wearing a dark lipstick so my lip color doesn’t take away from my look, instead it gives it a slight dramatic contrast. I played around on this last picture by putting on glasses just to have a different feel to the look. My watch is from Saint london XVI which I wrote about in my previous post if it interests you. I’m wearing a very simple necklace to add a bit of class to the look. I feel it all came together beautifully.

I will post the look on (shop my look) which is by the menu button. So if you like it you can have an idea of where to find the items.

Let me know your thoughts.

Mom jeans

We always say new year,new resolutions and we try our best to implement those resolutions. Anyway mom jeans are not my new year resolution I just thought since I always see them and like them on others, why not try them on me. I just never got around to owning a pair until 2018. It was always that debate with self ” oh no I don’t think they will suit me” or they are not for me even before trying them on. We do that quite often I don’t know if its a human thing. In situations you defeat yourself before even trying.

So one of my resolutions is to go for it, meaning take risks girl, what do you have to loose? A few knocks here and there is part of life. So I’m refraining from using the above quote or any defeated thinking before actually doing something. Here is to my first pair of mom jeans, I actually like them.

I mean they are so comfortable,I love skinny jeans but I feel like I have been depriving myself. I wanted them plain but they only had the ones with the pearl detail at the bottom. My husband asked me why do these pants look like they are being eaten at the bottom. That made my day honestly never laughed that hard. My reply was it’s fashion honey not my doing.

I thought I would pair them up with this gorgeous round bag which I find absolutely breathtaking and simple. Leonardo Da Vinci once said “simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”. We can’t all be glamorous in our choices I have learned some of us are just attracted to simple beauty while some of us are attracted to more flashy and glamorous beauty.

I also love these gorgeous shoes I wore with the jeans.

I feel like it’s a definite yes for mom jeans. They are so versatile I find. I can wear them in so many different ways to suit any occasion. If you like my look, you can check out the items on my Shop my look on the menu.

Do you love mom jeans ? Please feel free to share your thoughts on this fashion item.

Saintlondon XVI collab

It’s really hard moving to a new country but it has been my motivation. I might not have friends yet but I’m in contact with a lot of people from different countries through internet. That’s the power of the internet it’s like having imaginary friends when you were young, only you could see them and interact with them. Don’t know if that happens in real life maybe I watch too many movies.

So I started blogging and it has been a challenge but most of all a learning curve. I’m learning about myself, business, socializing etc all at the same time. I was confused in the beginning which niche to follow but I followed my heart which led me to fashion, beauty and lifestyle. The reason I ended up with these three niches is my love for fashion and individualism within. There are thousands and thousands of fashion bloggers but I believe if I get inspired without copying I should be able to stand out or more like having a little bit of faith while doing my best.

I found a theme and followed it with each post and eventually there was a DM from Saintlondonxvi which said they liked my feed and they are interested in collaborating. Immediately I went on the internet and started researching on collaborations. Then I replied with a big Yes. An amazing Fitzrovia rose gold, a timeless and sophisticated timepiece for every occasion. Giving class and sophistication in the most subtle but brilliant manner arrived. Codes were sent and I had to take pictures and post together with my code. So exciting I thought as it inspired me to be creative about colors and textures. It was pretty straightforward to be honest no hassles. I’ll leave it at that and if you are interested in these gorgeous timepieces which I think are absolutely amazing head over to their website or follow this link https://www.saintlondonxvi.com/discount/VERONZEE which will lead you to a 20% off when checking out by using the discount code VERONZEE. You will find the piece that speaks to you the most. You can thank me later:)

I have been receiving a lot of emails and DM s but I’ve decided to stick more on the side of I’m not buying to advertise for a brand unless it’s one of my favorites,there has to be another way, I get the 50,20, 10 percent off but is it really worth it if the work is mostly for the brands than yourself. When do brands contact you to give you stuff for free to spread the word or pay you? How long does that take because I’m impatient to wait two years or however long. So I’ll just keep the faith and keep checking my inbox for that big offer that will bring more opportunities that are worth it for me.

P.S How amazing that Octoly decided to lower their requirements to 5k on Instagram, i thought that was fate because i had just heard about them and went online and it was 10 k next morning 5k.

Have you guys done any collaborations and what are your thoughts?

All the luck to me xx

Blazer Love

Don’t you just love blazers, there’s something chic about a woman in a blazer. Honestly I never really liked my blazer at school, my long arms were the reason because it could never reach my wrists. Such a petty reason to dislike something right? At this time I was plagued with insecurities. I remember a time I would slouch because I felt too tall or only wear sports bras because my boobs were too big. There’s just so many negative reasons we feel our heads with when growing up. Sometimes they are stuck with us for the rest of our lives, sometimes we embrace them and find beauty in our flaws.

I love blazers now that I’ve done a bit of growing up. My favorites are the checked blazers. They are so unique, they give a very classy and timeless appearance. I sometimes hear ladies thinking that certain items are not suited for them. I can assure you blazers are suited for every body and they are very versatile. They come in different styles, shapes and sizes. Small framed women can get away with any style, the same with medium framed women while large framed women look best when the blazer has no back slit as they tend to lift I find. So no excuses ladies, if you always wanted a blazer but felt insecure about wearing it, please toss those insecurities and embrace those flaws and get yourselves a blazer.

You can wear it going to the office, running errands,drinks with friends you name it. Whatever the occasion a blazer will accommodate it.

Here are a few blazer inspirations from Pinterest to further convince you to buy a blazer. You can also click on my Instagram shop in the menu button to shop or see whether you can find some good blazers that won’t kill or kill your budget. Happy shopping.

The way she wears it 

A classic piece that every wardrobe needs, so perfect it can be styled in so many ways. Each wearer creating their own unique style. It gives elegance and class to any outfit. Ladies get yourselves a camel coat.

 Camel coats are vintage pieces and there’s something unique about a fashion piece that never goes out of style. If you don’t know what to wear, it always comes in handy especially at this time of the year. You can wear a simple pair of jeans and a t-shirt but once you put the camel coat on, it transforms the look.

A few things you have to consider when buying a camel coat are: the material, the craftsmanship how it’s made is very important as it determines the whole appearance, the seems, lining, buttons etc.The blend is it with wool, cashmere or mohair? My favorite is cashmere blend like the one I’m wearing it gives it a slick high end appearance.The cut is also important because we all have different body types which then makes the choice an individual one like choosing from double breasted or not, oversized or fitting, with a belt or without. At the moment oversized coats are trending but let that not discourage you if you love the fitting cut. It works just as beautifully depending on how you style it. Certain occasions work well with both fitting and oversized for example a work function or meeting or just going to work a fitting camel coat looks amazing. Grabbing coffee with friends or going shopping an oversized camel coat works best. So why not have them both and change them up for each occasion.

Quick tip: When shopping do you just buy because you like an item then arrive home nothing goes with your new item in your wardrobe then that item is stashed somewhere in your wardrobe neglected? Well next time you go shopping consider the following how does this item fit in my wardrobe? Do I have a few pieces that will compliment this item?With these questions you have your whole wardrobe in your head when shopping so whatever item you buy, you already put it in an outfit with what you already have. 

Here are a few camel coat inspirations taken from Pinterest that will get you adding a camel coat to your wardrobe.

Don’t be afraid to fall🍂🍂

Im from South Africa for those who have not read my about page. The weather is warm and our winter is a sweater and a jacket,10 degrees being the minimum. I never really noticed Autumn months. There was really nothing to notice, advantages of living in the city though I didn’t grow up in the city I still have no recollection of autumn memories.

Now moving to France there’s two things I was looking forward to in terms of weather, the snow which I saw in the movies especially those Christmas ones with smoked chimneys and the beautiful colorful autumn trees with leaves falling making decorational colors. There’s such a strong significance here something dead yet looking so alive.It’s an understatement to say I was excited.

My love for fashion led me to these beautiful pumpkins. I love the color palettes they represent and the warmth they give,no curving here.In my opinion every girl’s autumn wardrobe should incorporate these colors. I love the soft colors for example your pastels though they are all year colors but they compliment the warm colors very well, it’s a match made in fashion heaven if such exits.Then you have the warm colors like your oranges and your browns etc which screams autumn .Then the deep colors which I find are mostly suited for winter like your pines and navies etc but if you play around with them they contrast beautifully. It’s time to forget any fashion rules you may know. When it comes to style it’s your perspective that matters.


My autumn fever began when I discovered the vintage sweaters my mother inlaw gave me as she probable anticipated they will come in handy. Can we be friends so I can come raid your Nana’s wardrobes , just a thought. I found myself obsessing as I walked into my favorite store and looked at nothing but sweaters,socks,boats and coats. The cosiness and heart warming feeling they give makes me want to cozy up all day wearing my socks and sweater by the fireplace sipping on a glass of red, would not life be perfect but my 6 months old twins would never allow such luxury.

So there you have it, the secret is out I’ve fallen What do you love most about fall? What are your favorite fall must haves?

Below are some of my favorites this fall.

With love xx
