I am never the type to wear sneakers, I do own them but being short going out with sneakers usually is a no. Else I will be seated all night, or on the dance floor. Needless to say, they will be making a return in my closet. The reason I chose the Fenty Pumas is they have a high sole. Just that little extra height is all I need. One other trend I have been dying to try is crochet crop tops. The way they look so effortless and the fact that you don’t have to wear a bra, side note, I hate bra’s.
If you read the travel post on the girls trip to Cape Town, you should have seen this floral dress. I decided to reuse it. All I had to do was cut of the arms and whoop I had a double slit skirt. Since I hardly wear sneakers, I figured let me be bold and pair it with a dress. Weird choice but it worked in the environment I was in. Did you read about me exploring the south? Well the next day, we took a trip down to Sossusvlei and Deadvlei, any opportunity for pictures.
Nothing can prepare you for the heat, absolutely nothing. The one thing that is worth mentioning is over pack when it comes to water, make sure you have a cooler box and fill it up with ice. You shall thank me. The scenery was beyond mesmerizing, the dunes had this glitter added to them. The sand was hot, so keep your shoes one. You know those desert pictures on social media where people are Bikini’s and all that. Well Sossusvlei is clearly not the destination.
From Sossusvlei Lodge to the dunes is quite a drive but the road is tarred. You will have to entertain yourself with views of nothing but trees that appear to be lonely. I kept wondering how they manage to survive in those harsh conditions. Somehow we can never explain Gods wonders. On a deep note, It reminded me that we are all survivors even on our own, but thankfully we are not tress. So if we are unhappy we can always move.
As you drive along the Namib Naukluft Park there are areas to stop such as Dune 45, which we took a hike on, boy was the sand hot. However it was super fun and I enjoyed every moment of it. I didn’t make it to the top, my legs gave it. Oh, we met and Oryx by the dune, standing in the sun probably wondering what we doing there. This are very common in this area. That was a first time for me besides science books.
Back to the shoes, this is a pair I am grateful to own. It brightens up my wardrobe and encourages me to style sneakers often. Are you a lover of sneakers? Which do you love? Am thinking of starting a collection. So cheers to pair 1 of many still to come. Which shoes make you uncomfortable to wear? I refuse to be the only one with this problem. #Laughs
