Last week I was invited to the first ever Gap Styling Session hosted by Grazia SA. We all got to pick out a pair of Gap jeans to take home and style with whatever we already had in our wardrobes. I decided to take a bit of risk and go for these bright floral jeans. They just jumped out at me, and told me I had to have them and go out and 'be bright'.
I decided to put together a summer meets winter look. I paired my summery floral jeans with a light blue denim shirt that fit the blues of the jeans perfectly. I added my go to brown leather boots which have been with me for two winters already and a neutral trench coat (Gap has an amazing version of this in stores). Moving on to accessories, the leather back pack is from Red Oker, and the hat belonged to Dylan's grandpa.
I'm getting very excited about Kinfolk Vol. 7, and waiting with baited breath (as per usual) when Warm & Glad will announce they have stock. I am in love with these dreamy images popping up everywhere of these huge ice-cream cones full of beautiful flowers! Like clockwork the Northern hemisphere is exploding with beautiful spring images while my garden already has crispy autumn leaves scattered on the grass. I love this time of year, and i'm pretty excited for some cooler weather.

Instagram has to be one of the most relevant forms of social media today, and awesome for people who are more visual than wordy (ie. me!). Instagram has gone huge worldwide and is taking over locally too.
Headed up by Gareth Pon @garethpon (managing the @IgersSouthAfrica account), he has been involved in organising instawalks (or instameets) all around Joburg and South Africa encouraging a community of iphonographers to explore interesting parts of the city and capture it through the lens's of their phones.
This weekend @IgersSouthAfrica is hosting a combined instawalk across a few cities. If you follow @IgersSouthAfrica you can get the details of the different walks. So far i've seen @igersGrahamstown, @igersGeorge, @igersDurban, @igersCapeTown, @igersPretoria, @igersPortElizabeth and ofcourse @igersJozi (I hear East London is all in the pipeline).
By taking part you can win some cool accessories for iphone namely an Olloclip which is a lot of fun, an iphone 5 lens (1st prize), or a framed print by SnapGram (2nd prize).
Go to the @IgersSouthAfrica page for more details, and to find out when and where the instameet is happening in your city.
I'm going to try make the Jozi walk. It's starting at Main Street Life in the Maboneng precinct on Sunday at 17:30. Perhaps i'll see you there!
I know it's a bit belated but i'm still really excited to share with you guys my first piece of real press for emmajanenation. Fairlady did a little interview with me about what my favourite things are at the moment and it's on page 218 of the current July issue! It came out while I was overseas and I was busy skyping Dylan when I found out! heehee. He rushed over to CNA and bought a bunch of copies and then tried to show me through a bad skype connection ; ) ah. so sweet. anyway here it is.
It's even up on our fridge! Thank to everyone who went out and bought a copy! : ) I'm still stoked and appreciate every comment, tweet, email about it. I'm rocking the brunette in this photo but after today i'm pretty much back to my blonde self. I missed it a bit too much.
