December 12 - Monday in Black

So, I'm fairly sure that last Monday I commented about 'not' wearing black on a Monday and today I go and wear black ... but I added red ;-).  I woke to a real grey and miserable day here in Jozi and added to that it was real chilly - so much so that I had my heater on in my office for part of the morning - how insane is that when we're basically in the middle of summer here in the southern hemisphere?

 By the time I left the office after work though the sun was out in force and I was needing to shed the jacked by the time I got in the house.

See Chino and Tequila making an appearance.
 Details Details Details ...
The regular black pants - Finnigans at Truworths (really need to sort out my black Kelso as I'm wearing these one's thin now)
Red t-shirt - OBR at Truworths
Jacket - Studio W at Woolworths - this is the first time I wore this since G-man bought it for me about two months ago on sale maked down by 70% - what a bargain.  I liked the military look of it and am considering changing the buttons to either gold or silver ones.
Shoes - Truworths
Necklace - hmmmm, where did I get it?  I think maybe Woolworths
Bangles - Truworths and Legit
Look at the sunshine streaming in through the window!

It's only two days of work left, then Thursday is a public holiday and then it's H.O.L.I.D.A.Y.  I'm like a donkey on the edge at the moment, a wee bit short tempered and irritable (don't mention mother nature to me, I may strangle her right about now) and so ready for this break.

The little people still don't know that we're heading to the coast, but I have a sneaky feeling that they're suspicious ... I just hope they like the surprise.


  1. Very pretty outfit! I think the jacket would look spectacular with metal buttons as well, although the current buttons keep it pretty versatile. I love the details of the necklace and bracelets.

    Enjoy the coast!

  2. I love this color-combo and your addition of the necklace and jewelry makes the total outfit look special. Anyone seeing you in this would be impressed. I am!

  3. Hi Sweetie! I just want to thank you for the super-nice comment you left on my blog. It makes me feel so warm.

    I cherish our friendship and am sure we'll meet in person some day. I love to travel and value friendship very highly; visiting good friends is my first priority.

    Thanks for everything!


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment - I love hearing others feelings and appreciate your time. Please be honest - BUT kind.

Have a fabulous day now and I'll be coming round to visit you as soon as I can.

Thanks again, Wendy
