In my younger days, I took part in an array of concerts and loved being on stage even though I was beyond shy. I still have all my costumes; tucked away until I daydream of the past and look back at how time has flown by. This is why I have a such a great desire to always watch any theatre productions, particularly anything regarding District Six. I recently watched the musical production, ‘Kanala’ at the Fugard Theatre in Cape Town. It is a remake on the original show, ‘District Six’ and what a brilliant show it was!
About this look: This location is actually my backyard. I live right behind a nature reserve so this outfit complimented the setting quite well. In my previous post, I mentioned my love for polo necks and there’s no denying the warmth that comes with it. Polo necks has quickly become the most staple item to have than a simple white t-shirt. It can be worn with a pencil skirt, a simple dungaree or it can be worn underneath a classic summer dress, pair it with tailored trousers or a maxi skirt like I did.
I was eyeing this burnt orange maxi skirt for as long as I can remember but they were sold out in my size. Alas, they returned and I knew exactly how to pair it with my beige polo neck. Because I was taking these images in grass/sand, I couldn’t exactly wear heels so I decided to wear an open toe gold pump which breaks away from the neutral yet dark accents and allows the overall outfit to have some sort of statement item.
