I recently went shopping.
Despite winter being my favourite season by a mile, I’m surprisingly un-equipped for it clothes wise.
Below are pictures of some of the things I’ve bought! Both the cropped cream Zara shirt/jumper and sleeveless, breton shirt from Sportsgirl are really useful basics. Great for layering, and pretty inexpensive! I’ve already worn the jumper three out of the four days I’ve had it.
It is fairly thin material but I wouldn’t want it any thicker, as the bomber-type (except as a jumper, obv) shape of it would start to look too bulky.

Priceline was having a two day 40% off all cosmetics sale and I made some unexpected purchases.. everything I bought is something I’ve been wanting to buy/re-purchase lately though, sooo maybe it’s okay? Mm

As well as these items, I bought a light grey, long sleeved, incredibly soft shirt from the Kmart men’s department – $6 –  some patterned wide-leg culottes from Zara – $40 -, which are possibly the most comfortable thing I’ve ever owned (I’m wearing them in the next post) after the  aforementioned Kmart shirt, and a few party decorations for our house’s upcoming joint-birthdays party!
I decided on a pink, green and silver colour theme to co-ordinate with our eclectic little kitchen. I’ll post some pictures of that once we’ve set it up!

It’s a weird, unpredictable time of year at the moment. The weather is just beginning to cool off and the relief is unanimous. Even the front lawn, which lay browning and abandoned all summer, is looking happier. The occasional hot mid-day still makes a surprise appearance, though. Yesterday, Pema dressed in a  mid-calf, white denim A-line skirt and cotton crop top for the warmth and was left chilly as the temperature dropped in the evening.
