I’ve had a very strong urge to buy things recently. It drove me to the edge, I caved, and I spent some money. But it’s all good, I’m back on the wagon now and saving my pennies once more. I didn’t go too
crazy, but while I was at the shops buying a gift for my nephew on the weekend I stumbled across a couple of things that I couldn’t resist picking up for myself.
I’ve been looking for a lightweight jacket to wear during the transition to the warmer months, and this one from Peter Morrissey for Big W is perfect. It’s a loose boyfriend fit, the sleeves can be easily rolled or pushed back because the lining is black, and it’s a lightweight material that should be comfortable to wear when the warm weather kicks in. The second item I wasn’t really planning on, but as it turns out I can’t walk past a Sussan store without going in to have a look. I feel like a lot of people overlook Sussan, but they have some really beautiful pieces. They’re pricey so I always check out the sale rack first. This pretty little split-back blouse was on sale, and I picked it up because it’s 100% my style and now I can’t wait to wear it. While I was in the store I spotted these linen blend t-shirts that looked like a nifty little tee, so I ordered myself after coming home and thinking about it for a bit. The necklace I saw in store and couldn’t get the idea of a ‘pop’ of yellow for spring/summer. I think it will bring a lot of life to some of my darker outfits next season.
I am so sick of my work wardrobe at the moment. I ordered this GAP eyelet dress to try and mix things up a little bit. I also thought that it could work well for both spring/summer and autumn/winter, which makes it a bit of a winner in my eyes. The Old Navy jeans are the latest in my never-ending attempt to buy cheap yet well-fitting jeans online. It has worked maybe 3 times in the past 5 years. The search continues.
