Call me cheesy, but I’ve long been a fan of matching Beanie’s outfits with mine. I have a deep affection for a good ol’ stripe, so it’s not unusual for Bean and I to sport similar striped styles on occasion. You can imagine my excitement when I first stumbled upon the matching Mamma & Bambino Leopard set from Adore This.
Adore This is a local online store that’s earned top spot on my bookmarks list. The carefully curated and handpicked collections feature fresh, new finds from both local and international designers, and the garments cater for women who are trend-conscious, but prefer to stick to classic, easy-to-wear pieces. Right up my alley, then!
From stylish casual wear from Indiana by Freda and dressier pieces from pret-a-porter label, Diane, (which was founded in Paris by model Diane Tadjuideen) to handwoven clutches and totes from AAKS handcrafted, Adore This covers pretty much all the bases – and even caters for your kiddies. Seriously, guys – I’m obsessed.
Just take a look at Beanie and I sporting our matching Mamma & Bambino Leopard set while on a recent forest walk at Vergelegen in Somerset West. I love pairing this comfy Indiana by Freda leopard print top with leggings for a casual look, but also enjoy dressing it up by pairing it with dark skinnies, high heels and red lips. It’s stylish and looks put-together, while still being super-comfortable – always a good thing when you work from home (it’s good to be comfortable, but you still need to look relatively put-together when popping out for the occasional meeting or when doing the play school run!)
The Indiana Bambino Leopard Hooded Puffa Vest totally steals the show, though. It’s ideal for the in-between weather we’ve been experiencing in Cape Town recently – I dress Beanie in a long-sleeved tee, then simply pop the puffa vest on over the top to keep him nice and cosy when the temperature drops. Our matchy-matchy twinning set certainly turns heads when we’re out and about, that’s for sure!
Customer service over at Adore This is fantastic – they offer secure and easy payment options, free nationwide delivery, plus free returns within 30 days. They also have a handy sizing guide to help you select the perfect fit. (Oh, and I’ve just spotted that there’s an awesome sale happening right this very minute – I’m totally eyeing this eye-catching Amber High Neck Dress (R600). But then the new summer collection is totally tempting, too… WANT this Earlena dress so badly!)
