March Edit | 9 must-have Autumn wardrobe updates

I love this time of year. The stores are changing up their windows to feature comfy layers, as well as some teasers of what we can expect this Winter. Each year I use Autumn as a chance to invest in some great quality basics, that will see me through the season and on to colder days. So instead of latching on to whatever colour/print is on trend, I stick to black, camel, white and beige, and just about anything with stripes.
I have been searching for weeks for the perfect tailored navy blazer, which I found in Zara (another great option here). And that Mango coat is too beautiful - although you may want to take a size smaller as I thought it looked a bit boxy in my normal size.

As much as we are all so tired of hearing it, Cape Town really does surprise you with four seasons in one day, so you really don't need the chunky knits just yet. A coat over a t-shirt will do. And ballet pumps and statement sneakers will easily see you through to June before you need to whip out the knee-high boots.

Here are nine beautiful and effortlessly chic items to get you started.

Stripe scoop neck t-shirt: R199, Cotton On
American Apparel floppy hat: R699, Superbalist
White ribbed knit: R999, Country Road
Studded clutch bag: R199 at Spree
Camel coat: R1799 at Mango
Beige leather ballet pumps: R750, Cinnamon
PUMA Trinomic sneakers, R1500, PUMA Select
Olivia Burton double strap watch: R1299, Superbalist
Navy Blazer: R899, Zara

Levis foldables

I am back in the game! I really hope you like the new look and feel of the blog. It looks just as hot on your phone or iPad as well which is something I've wanted to get right for a long time.

So lets get back to the business of shopping shall we? With it being a scorcher of a week ahead, you'll want to have some sunnies on hand all the time. Levi's have brought their A-game this summer and I previously raved about the collection here. I ended up with the pair of gold/orange reflective aviators and have lived in them all summer long.
Now they've added foldable wayfarers to the collection. I love the idea of a pair of sunglasses so compact, they could fit into a clutch bag. Or if you're feeling like the boy needs a spoil, these could pop right into his pocket.

While I am loving anything with bright reflective lenses right now, my favourite in this collection is the all-black. I definitely think the boy needs a pair of these, which he'll be forced to share, of course.
