I LOVE a good t-shirt – especially when they have funny South African sayings on them. You can wear these anywhere, & pair them with jeans/shorts/skirts. And when I saw a local business creating super-cute designs, including clothing for babies & children, I immediately popped them a message to see if I could feature them on my blog.
