Don’t look drab this winter

Okay so winter is still a few months away but the shops are already starting to unpack their autumn/winter stock. I’m one of the first people to cling to my summer skirts and sandals, even if that means freezing my tooshie off, because I hate wearing layers of bulky clothing that leaves me feeling like a marshmallow man.

Very rarely do I walk out of Pick n Pay Clothing without a top or cardi. Today I walked out with 2 great jerseys and a top.

I couldn’t decide between the neon jersey or the black one (both would look awesome with jeans and pumps) so I decided to get both (R125 each).┬áThe neon one for the days I feel like standing out and black one for every other day.

I also got another top (R69.99) with neon stripes that caught my eye from the bottom of the shelf. It has a boat neckline which I love because they are always very flattering.

In winter I often feel like the clothes are all dreary greys, browns and blacks and this year I can’t wait to look a little more cheerful in neon.

Woolies sandals

The last week has been super busy and retail therapy really does put me in a better mood. This last week I found some great things in the shops.

Lovisa is having a sale! Yippee! This is great news because the store in Cresta really had low levels of stock for quite a while and I thought they were closing down. I got a pleasant surprise when I walked past this evening and saw their shelves filled with accessories and sale signs. The ladies at the counter told me that they have loads of new stock coming and the sales will continue for a while so I should carry on popping in.

Bargains for tonight:

Believe bangle R30 (previously R85)

Hanging earrings R30 (previously R150)

Studs R50 (previously R100)

Bangles R50 (previously R175)

Stack rings R160 (unfortunately they weren’t on sale but I still had to have them)

Mr Price had 2 great monochrome items I wanted – scarf with crosses on it and a bangle. I am obsessed with bird accessories and fell in love with this swallow pendant necklace.

I saw these neon sandals on Instagram late last week and went on a mission to find them. I was lucky enough to find them and these gold and black ones at Woolies in Brooklyn Pretoria. The straps are made from elastic so they are nice and comfy for summer. I also saw them in red and gold.

Yay for shopping!
