Simplicity

I tend to go through phases when it comes to the way I dress. Right now I am in a simplistic phase. I am craving basic outfits without too many frills and spills. This is undoubtedly because of the weather. I basically need to be warm and I need to be able to quickly run to shelter when it’s starts raining! Nothing much more too it.

This outfit is very basic featuring my beloved coat from Cotton On. It is the only coat that I bought this Winter as I was very selective when it came to buying outerwear this season. The coat is made of fabric that is soft to the touch and also feels good on the skin :)

Are you going through any fashion phases at the moment?

Spree.co.za Occasion Dresses

I recently needed an occasion dress for an evening event. I decided to hit the mall and I was very disappointed with what I found! Most shops had a small or non-existent occasion sections. In the end I had only a couple of shops to choose from. Another issue I had is that too many of the dresses were bodycon dresses and I just did not want to wear one for that event.

I was browsing the “New In” section on Spree.co.za the other day and was so surprised to find some amazing occasion dresses. Their dresses are beautiful and some of them are very unique. Thank you Spree! This is just another example of where online shopping beats mall shopping.

Comfort Clothing

I don’t know what it is about a chunky knit that I find so comforting. It could be that it keeps you warm like a blanket does and it is more comfortable than a jacket or coat. I got this chunky knit at the Zara sale and I have worn it several times since I bought it. I adore it!

I am also loving wearing a backpack. It is great when you are out shopping and you can throw all your purchases in it and have your hands free to look at more stuff. How convenient!

I hope you all had a beautiful weekend! Have you bought anything lately that you find comforting or convenient?
