Last week, I was away in America .. It was a bit of a rushed trip with   just a few pictures to show for it.. I was able to document my style.. I hope you find it at least slightly entertaining….

I stopped by LA for 2 days .. I absolutely love LA.. I feel like I can totally live there…

My first outfit in was a  Grey sequined dress by Ukulele I scored from Zinkata and flat shoes from Nordstrom rack.. I threw on my favourite grey sweater from Dahlia.. It was a bit nippy and the perfect outfit for the weather..

I hit the Fashion District in LA on the second day in really comfortable clothes.. I like to project a bit of my heritage in my outfits while away.. I wore this Ankara Jacket by Kinabuti with cut-offs and tights.. I absolutely love the shoes.. They are super comfy and a cross between trainers and Mules.

I wore this lovely burnt orange dress.. A gift from a friend and amazing Zinkata customer..(Mpho Laing)..  New York was slightly chilly so a Sweater and tights had to feature.. Also.. i was running all around DOWNTOWN..I had to have comfortable shoes on.. I loved the colours!!
