Saturday outing and my Navajo Jacket

My overall look for the day
I was not too sure I'd embrace this trend as I tend to steer clear of 'ethnic' type clothing, like kimonos and too many 'african' beads etc.

But when I saw this in the store earlier this week, it appealed to me.  Possibly the main attraction was the colours, because I do so love earth tones, and I have spent a fair amount of  money on work style clothes, that I thought it a good idea to buy something a little more casual, but that I could also 'style up' for work with the right skirt, work pants and top.

 Pants : Truworths
Vest : Truworths
Jacket : Foschini
Boots : Woolworths

Visit my sister Lynn's blog for her version of the outing.

We headed off to an actique/vintage auction in Meyerton.  We'd been told that the Vespa Club would be riding out, but we did not get to see them.  Graeme chatted with a gent there about his two Vespas that need to be restored and tomorrow he's going to visit the Classic Bike Club and take his Vespas through for the man to take a look at them. 

My sister, brother-in-law and nephew came with us.  There were some awesome items at the stalls and although I saw a gorgeous office chair, scale and butter churner, we did not spend. 

The 'loving' biker boys we share our lives with.  Two of my four most favourite males in the world.
I absolutely adore my brother (in-law)!

There were awesome old signs all over.

 We then headed to CafĂ© du Cirque for coffee and sadly, the milkshakes were so small and Lynn did not enjoy her Carrot Cake :-(

The cousins

I don't think my head engaged with the camera today - but tomorrow is another day to give it a go.

Hope your Saturday was stunning.


  1. Interesting and unusual vest. Glad to hear about your exciting day.

  2. Such nice photos ... love the one of Connor and Liam ~ In Zimbabwe they would be called 'cousin brothers'.

    I LOVE your jacket!!!

  3. Oh my word...your photography skills have grown in leaps and have an eye for what is appealing.


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
