Today’s post is a little different. I thought that with the holiday season fast approaching, it would be good to put together a post that not only inspires style, but also fun. And what’s more fun than having sundowners at one of the best spots in Durban?
For those of you who either live in Durban, or are thinking of visiting, this is a post you will enjoy. The MOYO uShaka Pier Bar is one of the most captivating spots in our beautiful city. It is absolutely breathtaking to be sitting having a meal or a cocktail while the waves are crashing below you. My cocktail of choice when visiting the Moyo Pier Bar is a Strawberry Mojito, it is oh so refreshing. And when it comes to food I absolutely suggest the Ostrich mince nachos. YUMMY!
Now when it comes to the oh so important question “What do I wear?”, Durban is the most chilled place ever – you could get away with just about anything. As Moyo Pier Bar is situated at the end of the uShaka pier, many people walk along that pier, coming from the beach & stop for a drink or two. Personally, when I decide to sip cocktails while enjoying friends company, I like to dress up a little (Which girl doesn’t right?), especially if I plan on going somewhere after that. That’s the nice thing about this spot, it’s a fab meeting spot before a night out on the town.
Back to style.
When I put these looks together, I had in mind “The Ultimate Summer Look”. And when I think on summer, I think of breezy fabrics & bright colours. This yellow dress from MANGO is a dream to wear. The colour is on trend for summer, & it is effortlessly chic. I especially love the crossover back detailing. And most importantly it’s the kind of dress I could wear to the office, & then go straight out to drinks or dinner with friends. Outfit 2 is more muted, but still makes a statement. I absolutely adore the cream colour cami with lace detailing (also from MANGO). It can be paired with just about any bottom, but in this case I chose a skirt with zip detailing to give the look a little edge.
Now, some exciting news. I will be hosting a #MANGOmystyle VIP Customer event at #MANGOGateway in Durban on 3 December 2014. I have a few tickets to give away so check out my Facebook page & my Instagram ( @brettrobson ) for more details on how you could WIN an invite to the event.
