Outfit Post: Monochrome in the Meander

Hi Loves

Happy New Year (I know we are five days into 2015 but it still counts right)…

The festive season brings on the end of year crazy sales. I complain about the hustle and bustle but I’m still there smack bang in the middle of the mall trawling through stores. I think this season has been the worst season when it comes to fashion so to speak and I didn’t pick up anything great from the sales. The mall trawling gets a bit much so yesterday my family and I decided to spend the afternoon in the Midlands Meander. A stones throw away from my home town lies various quaint restaurants and stores.

We visited the Nelson Mandela capture site which houses a sculpture to commemorate Madiba as well as a little Museum explaining Madiba’s struggle. I didn’t plan a look post it just sort of happened. My amateur photographer and cousin snapped away through our little ‘Sunday Funday’. I chose a few of the better shots to share with you.

Lately I have been sticking to a very neutral palette wearing basic colours. I picked up this shirt with chevron stripes (which is something to look out for this season) from the Cotton On sale. It’s a little big for me and I should taper it a bit but I like the oversized shape paired with skinnies. I wore it with my new favourite shoes (yes I practically live in them). The description on the box referred to them as ‘Sneaker Loafers’. I have tried on a ton of plimsolls but I found that they just don’t suit me. I’m also not a fan of the thicker sole. The great thing about these ‘sneaker loafers’ is that they are leather which means a longer life span.

It was a fun afternoon full of laughs a little groaning when we ended up in places that weren’t interesting (to me anyway). I still haven’t tasted the lovely treats that the Midlands has to offer so I will go back for my chocolate dipped strawberries and Chillies, yes chillies! It’s a lovely place to explore if you have young kids especially but I find it best if you get an early start.

Lookout for something awesome soon since January is my birthday month.
