Casual neutrals

Gooooood morning :) It’s FrrriiiiiiiiiiiiDaaaaayyyyy :):)

What are you guys planning for the weekend? Ryan’s parents are coming today and will be here until next week :)  Will probably also continue on with the wedding planning haha. Getting there now! I feel like I’m getting something done every day :)

It’s freezing here this morning and the weather will probably not get any better. Expecting stormy weather this weekend. So I’m gonna share some sunnier photos with a very casual outfit in neutral colors. Most of my clothes are black, white, grey or beige haha. Love it. DSC_0058DSC_0060DSC_0057DSC_0059DSC_0052DSC_0054 DSC_0055DSC_0053

The LBD and wedding planning

Good morning!
My wedding planning is now happening 24 hours a day haha I even plan stuff in my dreams! But we are getting there. Quite a few things checked off the list already.
And even more stuff waiting to be checked off :P
The trickiest parts I’m dealing with now is finding an officiate and outfits for everyone to wear. Found my dress already and will order it as soon as possible. But what I have in mind for my bridesmaids is very hard to find. Guessing its just the wrong season, need to look closer to summer. The same goes for the groom and groomsmen’s outfits. Wrong season. Cant wait for the shops to get their summer stuff in. And to find someone to officiate at the wedding is a lot harder than I thought. But I’m gonna keep on looking…

You guys were so sweet and seemed to like the LBD outfit I posted from my trip to Barcelona. So here is another way of wearing the same dress :)

Hello lovely people :)
Hope your weekend was awesome!
Ryan and I had a very chilled friday. On saturday morning we went over to Martin and Nikkis house for breakfast. And after that I met up with Taryn at Primis for lunch and drinks. Had a great time :)
Yesterday Ryan, Emilio and I went for a drive to visit the wedding venue we were interested in. LOVED it!!! So now we are just looking at the numbers and will book it as soon as possible :) YAY :):)
It’s been a lot of wedding planning going on here at home since I got back from Sweden. So many things to do but it’s seriously soooooo much fun :D
I already bought my wedding shoes last week hehe. Now I’m going to do some more planning ;)
Hope you have a fab monday <3

Here is a outfit that I wore last month but never got to post… Ready to go out for a couple of drinks ;)

In Sweden.

After the Barcelona trip I went Sweden. Had to sort out all my boxes with stuff standing at my parents house. I left South Africa with a bag that weighed 15kg and came back with it weighing 21kg plus my handbag stuffed and a extra bag of 8kg as hand luggage haha. I still have a moving box full of stuff that I have to get here soon.

Didn’t really have time to do much and I missed out on seeing some of my friends – sorry guys :( next time!!
I did however get to see my bff Anna that I haven’t seen in 6 years!!!!! Crazy how quickly time goes by… But it felt like we saw each other the other day haha. We walked around in Strängnäs and had breakfast and lunch and chatted. So good to see her :)

I had to wear the same outfit almost every day hahaha I had packed for summer but when I arrived in Sweden it was only 10 degrees…

My lovely manicure and my lovely ring ;) Only took me 2 weeks to heal my finger haha. Had to get the ring fixed one more time yesterday though to get the size right. Which means that when Ryan proposed I put a ring on that was 2 ½ sizes too small hahaha.

I also had my friend Erica visit me quickly which was awesome! :)
And I got to spend a day with my mom in Västerås :) We went to a mexican restaurant for lunch and then ran around town in the rain going from shop to shop looking at things and chatting and trying not to get soaked haha. We had coffee at two different places and my mom made it feel like it was my birthday haha :) So lovely <3

Wish I had taken more photos in Sweden… but I had a great time.

I often visit Port Elizabeth and always make time for a few shoots while I am there. This time I met and photographed blogger and jewelry designer Sophie of @FoxandLime. Her jewelry is amazing btw, have a look via her website…We shot in PE central on a quiet morning during the week, the architecture in the city is absolutely amazing so I was very excited when she suggested this location.

Have a look at what we photographed:

Saturday’s outfit and ring issues

Hellooooo :)
The weekend is over – hope you all had a fabulous one!
It’s been quite the interesting morning for me…. last night my finger starting swelling up so I spent about 3 hours trying to get my new beautiful engagement ring off. It just would not come off. I tried elevating my arm, putting ice on my finger, using soap, using oil, I tried pushing glad wrap in under the ring to pull it off but nothing helped. So I went back to bed waking up like every 10 mins just to make sure my finger was still above my head and wasn’t turning purple. It was a pulsating, throbbing feeling and my finger felt like it wanted to explode. So this morning Rodney my amazing jeweler came by and had to cut it and bend it open so that I could get it off. Now a few hours after – my finger is still swollen but the pressure inside is going away. Will have to make the ring a bit bigger haha. Thats what you get for pushing a ring on your finger!

That’s how sexy my finger looked hahaha. Like a little balloon!

 

Anyway now that that is over – here is what I wore on saturday when I got proposed to ;) <3
