I am not wild about this outfit despite Courts, Schatz and Felicia all commenting that they like it, I just don’t feel totally right in it.  Not sure and I can’t quite put my finger on it … but then I think, maybe it looks better ‘in person’ than in the photos.

Skirt : Truworths | Shirt & Belt : Chinese store | Shoes : Fashion World

I bought these shoes as the ridiculous price of R99.99 last week at Fashion World … I simply could not resist.  I’m picturing them more with a charcoal grey suit with a peplum and a lacy top.  They called me from the window and I had to go in and look at them and when I saw the price, which initially said R159.99, I had to take them (I also considered the black pair) and oh joy, when the sales lady rang it up, they were marked down to R99.99 – I do so love a bargain and even more so on shoes because I’m rough on shoes so I don’t spend huge wads of cash on them.  I like the vintage look of them with the laces and the cap.

I’ve still not been planning my outfits well in advance so I’m throwing ideas together in the morning and hoping for the best in the limited time I set myself for dressing.  

The workshop called and said that their mechanic promises that the knocking sound in my car is gone.  They’ve replaced the shocks and shock mounts and I am hoping that it is now sorted.  So irritating to have this knock knock sound when driving.   Also this afternoon my hairdresser is coming round to trim and colour my hair and cut Jarod’s hair.  I absolutely love getting my hair cut and get so excited – only pity is that I won’t be getting the head massage with the wash.

Hope your Tuesday is fabulous.

    Those shoes are fab! They also look like they might be comfortable to walk in.

    Really cute shoes, Wendy and perfect match with your belt. And the special price on top is great!

    For “thrown together” this look is fantastic! Love the way the denim shirt looks dressy but not overly fussed upon. And those “witchy shoes” gah, what a bewitching set of kicks!

    Oooh, LOVE the look of those shoes! Isn’t it the BEST when you’ve already decided to buy something and it ends up costing even less than you anticipated?
