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.
