It was my dads 50th birthday the other day. He’s normally a very hard person to shop for but for some reason this year was the easiest it has ever been. We ventured down into the mens department of David Jones in the city and left a little while later with a thick dark grey Country Road scarf (~ $60) and an ink blue corduroy Sportscraft button up shirt (~$120), both items happened to be on sale which was a huge bonus. I think we were subconsciously inspired by the sales assistants down there, they are impeccably dressed. It’s actually insane, like Chuck and Nate in the early episodes of Gossip Girl – only more slick.
It was a really nice, chilly day to be out, the city was busy but not packed and for once we’d all managed to coordinate our schedules. I wore my Zara culottes ($40) and a black turtleneck and semi-heeled leather boots, and while Pema was grabbing a coffee we took a snap in this cool hidden alleyway.
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!
