I love shopping. If there is a shopping centre nearby you can bet that I have been in there and bought something whilst I was there.
It is something that I do for fun, it makes me happy.
So this morning whilst James was still sound asleep, as he has been most mornings since he stays up until the early hours of the morning, I decided to window shop.
This is generally a bad idea for me, because it just makes me want more and more things. Things being clothes, shoes, handbags, and the list goes on.
Instead of seeing it as a waste of time, I saw it as an opportunity to refine my needit list. Not things that I necessarily want, but things that I need so that way I can build my wardrobe. I plan to declutter my wardrobe again in March and eBay the items that I don't need or want or use anymore.
:: Nude wedges; I need these while I am still learning to walk in my pumps. Perfect pair from Wittner $129.95 [and I own them already in black!]
:: A black jacket; I don't actually own a black jacket that is this cute and warm. My goodness was this Portmans Ponti Tie Waist Coat warm when I tried it on today. It has an almost $200 price tag though; but would totally be a staple to my wardrobe.
:: Bright coloured ballet flats; I never really got into the whole colour blocking trend, but with winter coming you need something to brighten your day and why not add some colour to your feet. Rubi shoes have a range of coloured little beauties for quite cheap too!
:: A drape-like cardi; Sportsgirl* has the perfect one. I'm actually leaning towards the ox-blood coloured one. However I am sure I could easily find a home for all three. Has pockets too!
:: A white coloured blouse; think sheer and team it with almost any denim piece in the wardrobe, in particular the skinny jeans. Glassons have me sold with their 3/4 Sleeve Slouch Blouse [I did find some others in store today but I can't seem to find them on the site and this one is equally awesome!]
That's it. I think by creating a list of five it makes it a little more achievable for me.
* Sportsgirl don't allow links; silly huh. It's in their knitwear section.
