I forgot to mention something I've been wearing to death when the sun's been out. It's a silky stretchy t shirt that I found in the op shop, it's Valley Girl so only cheap and nasty but I really love it. It's cream and red/orange horizontal stripes and it has longer sleeves which I love on t shirts.

And reading about everyones purchases.
Monica I really like maxi dresses what colour is the one you got from Jeans West?
Daybreak sales websites! OMG I think I need to know about these - or maybe not.
Bluebug I really wasn't sure about the sparkly Rubi shoes but I think they might be ok with jeans? Or maybe not... Your emerald green cardi sounds gorgeous! I love green. I think we need a pic of it.
Melissa I stumbled across it a couple of weeks ago and grabbed it. I reckon I'm gonna get heaps of wear from it.
Piper I'm a much bigger fan of long sleeves than short sleeves - your top sounds lovely.

Before I finally found those at the last shop I looked in, I got all these other things
These sunnies were 2 for $10
This coat was only $30 and perfect for Canberra autumn and winter weather! It's actually a navy and black heavy tweed, don't know if you can see in the pic but it's gorgeous!
And lastly this grey tee and also a dress. Matched perfectly with the shrug I wore today so bonus points there!
Also got a start on the Christmas shopping so a tee for DH and a game and book for DD.

My credit card has been given a workout as the days are getting warmer and I am finding less and less suitable clothes in my wintery wardrobe.
I splurged on this in the DJs 40% off sale. I think I am going to get lots of wear out of it. Despite being long sleeved it's a very light crochet and despite the horizontal stripes it's very flattering!
I also bought this for a few events we have coming up. It felt like spring!
I also bought a yellow caftan style top from Witchery which is fab with white jeans (who knew I would be a convert to white jeans!!). I found a very flattering (and inexpensive pair) of them at Sussans that are perfect for spring with all sorts of floaty tops (and even black and white stripes.
Another fab find has been this maxi skirt from Target. Flattering and comfy.

Love the DJ's dress, will you be considering a matching mummy and me number with the WF chevron dress ?
I've already bought a whole pile of WF for this winter, including the chevron cape!! How funny! It's a gorgeous line actually and I am currently trying to resist buying more with the old gym bucks!

MsGems, am thinking I need a belt to go with the dress if I wear it on its own just because of the way it falls when on. Off to the shops again I think!

Green denim shorts from Gap
2 x stripy t-shirts and a stripy t-shirt dress from French Connection
Black work pants from Target
2 x plain silky long sleeved tees from Portmans for layering
Some hair accessories
Fluoro yellow and orange nail polish
Okay seeing it listed there, I didn't actually end up with much but I shopped for hours and tried on SO many things. I tried on a few pairs of skinny jeans and they just don't suit me, they look cute on other people but I so can't pull it off.
There were some amazing dresses in Karen Millen. So beautiful but out of my price range, sadly.
This is the t-shirt dress. The tops are the same sleeves but shorter and a different colour scheme.
And I am IN LOVE with this dress from Karen Millen.

I've been lusting after a few things over the past month.
I laybuyed this shift dress in Country Road - that I'm more than likely going to wear as a very long top over 3/4 jeans. It feels so nice to wear as the material is quite silky.
And I really really want these ballet flats from Sambag to wear with the dress but I'm going to wait to see if they come on sale.... and if I miss out so be it.

Not that I'm particularly in the market for $500 dresses at the moment but if for some reason a person gave me a cheque and an invitation to a fabulous something I'd like to think I can pop into CD and get something that doesn't look like I picked it up at the Walmart discount bin in Dixie.

I am back into statement necklaces at the moment - have bought a few lately and love to jazz up plain t-shirts and shorts outfits
I also bought my first peplum top the other day (I know a little late for being on trend!), a sweet peter pan collared black work top and I surprised myself at how much I like it on!
Drom - I think Target had some cute purple flats when I was last in there? Very nice and I LOVE the Country Road white tunic you bought earlier
