This #OOTD is not just an ordinary one. This one is extra special and full of Love.
As you know I just turned 21 , and I got the coolest gift from an aunt! I absolutely adore her, she always finds creative and fun ways to stay busy. It’s amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it.
You’re all probably wondering what I’m on about! So here goes. This White Crocheted Sweater was hand made by an Aunt of mine. It’s perfectly crocheted and is stunning. I fell in love with it the first time I saw it. The one thing that makes it extra extra extra special is that my aunt didn’t even use a pattern to make this. I mean how many people can say they have a perfect white home made crocheted sweater.
I paired it with a pair of beige Jeggings and a Nude pointed pump. And also accessorised with a gold watch and some diamond studs. I wanted to keep it simple so as to not take away from this gorgeous sweater.
If you do have some home made garments, let me know – I would love to see them.
Also don’t forget to follow me on the Gram and Twitter! I love hearing back.
So here in South Africa, we don’t really experience 4 distinct seasons. This means that we don’t have an actual date for each season as there is no official seasonal calender. I pretty much work on the assumption that from the beginning of March until the end of May would be Autumn, and then from about the end of May/beginning of June to the end of August – this would be our Winter. (Alternatively , you could just have a peek in your fave clothing stores and see what sort of Clothing Items they’ve just unpacked – Either way works I suppose)
I’ve seen some cute Winter Clothing Items and Accessories I would love to have, thought it would be nice to share with my Readers, feel free to let me know what’s on your winter wishlist. I would love to have a look.
Number One – This lovely Beige Loose Trench Coat – I haven’t actually purchased from them just yet. Hoping to shop with Lovely Musthaves real soon though. I think it would look great paired with some white denim bottoms, or can even be used to break an all black outfit. They have an instagram page as well – Check them out!
Number Two – I found these stunning Fringed Chestnut Boots from Zoom, they’re available at Superbalist. I already have great idea’s for outfits- for this lovely pair of Boots. I’m thinking they can be worn with either a dress or a pair of fitted pants. Superbalist stock them in Black and Chestnut, so if you’re purchasing these you have two options.
Number Three – I was browsing the internet, and I fell in love, this Willow Wrap Coat is the perfect winter Item for South African Winter, It’s elegant Long line wrap coat is an elegant Must have for your Wardrobe. This one is from Forever New.
Number Four – River Island is most likely to be my favourite Clothing store these days, They have amazing knitted jumpers there , There is a Beige & Yellow Knitted Zip Back Jumper and this White & Black Knitted Zip Back Jumper is totes cute, lovely for those days you just feel like throwing something on.
Well that’s all from me, have a great weekend – let me know what you think.

What it means to turn 21?
It means you’re an adult now, it’s no longer time to sit around and just wait for things to happen, it’s time to get out there and get those things done. It means you can now get out into the world , make your own memories, travel the world, meet new people, try new food and just do you the way only you know best.
My wishes weren’t extravagant, I found myself wanting happiness more than anything, wanting memories with people I loved, wanting the great moments to last forever. I found myself wishing to be successful in whatever I put my mind to.
I want to be great, not for anybody else, but for myself, for my sister and for my parents. I want them to be proud. I want to be able to sit back and be proud of myself too.
So if you’re turning 21 this year as well. I wish you all the best. May it be great and everything you’re expecting, no matter what your wishes are, may they be fulfilled.
It hasn’t been an easy ride, the future doesn’t look easy either, but Here’s to turning 21.. 🍾🍾🍾
My birthday outfit was from River Island, it’s a two piece crocheted set, in Black. The crocheted detail was my favorite part of the outfit. I paired it with a frill suede tan peep toe heel. Those have to be my fave shoe right now. I through on some gold accessories and was ready to go! Hope you like. 😘
love Bini 💋💐
