hoodie dress.


dress. aa. jacket. h & m. shoes. JS. shades. ray ban.


hoodie dress. Yup it's out there.
It definitely gets cold here in Africa ( South Africa ). Which still boggles my mind after living here for over 3 years... I guess you always associate Africa with the blistering heat. But alas it gets cold. Not blizzard cold, but a chill that gets into your bones leaving you with no hope for retaining a normal body temperature. This can be attributed to the fact that our houses do not have central heating (!!!). Craziness, I tell you. So although our winter is only a few months, it is more often than not, warmer outside than inside. Which leaves me bundled 24/7.
But being a Canadian, I will never complain about "winters" here... as I've witnessed snow taller than me and temperatures of -50 degrees celsius. no joke.

Therefore this dress suits me + my bi-coastal winters perfectly.

Ida said...

I have always wanted to visit South Africa. How did you end up living there? And I think it's a common thing with houses - warmer outside than inside.

Keep on rocking that hoodie, darling!

Thank you for the awesomely sweet comments all the time. You make me smile.

Also, this is a cute look, and I want to come to south africa some time, and talk politics, and go surfing, and look at pretty things like yourself. maybe you will be there when I come adventuring.
