Red capris and a floral peplum

Capris and a floral peplum
Peplum : Fashion Express
Capris : Woolworths
Shoes : ShoeCity
Earrings : Foschini
Bracelets : Charlotte Russe & Various others

Schatz was still half asleep and shaky when he tooks my pics this morning, so apologies for the bluriness of the pic.  I am feeling in the holiday/weekend spirit so decided to wear my capris.  I find this top to be happy - the colour and the print just looks happy and I enjoy feeling happy.

Last night was our monthly Sistas Dinner.  With it being December, we gave out Christmas gifts.  I got such gorgeous gifts.  I'm hoping to get photos from my sisters soon to share.

Norma gave us each a little wooden crate filled with yummy goodies like biscuits and sweeties as well as a three piece cake set.  Its quite different and definitely gorgeous.
Noleen gave us each a wall hanging with a poem on it and a gorgeous clock.
Lynn gave us a note book (mine has an image of the Eiffel Tower on it), scarf, sweeties and hand cream.

I gave Noleen and Lynn each a pendant and for Norma I got a bracelet and I added in a little Christmas fruitcake and a minature candycane.  I also brought Christmas Crackers for us to share.  I always enjoy watching the other patrons faces ... as curious as they are about what we're getting up to as curious as I am about them :-).

While I was out to dinner I got a message from home saying that our young cat was missing.  Schatz and the kids searched the closets and he went around the garden with a torch, but she was nowhere to be found.  Luckily this morning the neighbours domestic told our Felicia that they had taken her to the SPCA - she's home safe and sound but she's such a little adventurer we're going to have to keep a close eye on her.  She's also due to be 'fixed', so we'd best get that done soonest ... however cute a little litter of kittens would be, I so don't want to fall in love with even more animals.

I guess as I need now is a Santa bag and I could look like a southern hemisphere Santa helper :0).

Happy day to you


  1. I have got to get myself a peplum top. Everytime I see someone wearing one I love it. You must live in a warm climate like I do. Still short sleeve weather here. That floral top is so pretty.

    1. Hi Marla,

      I felt the same way ... at first I wasn't sure about the peplums (but I loves them in the 90's as well) and everytime I saw someone wearing one I wanted one.

      I live in South Africa - its supposed to be summer here, but so far its really mild.

      Hope your day is wonderful and thanks for the sweet comments - I appreciate them.


  2. You look very festive...and I am so happy for you that you have the Christmas spirit in abundance ;-)

  3. Okay, I'm caving and buying a peplum blouse!

    So glad kitty came home. I won't let my kitten Sasha Jane go out at all, but she doesn't seem to mind being an indoor kitteh.

  4. Love the red capris. I'm insanely jealous of them, in fact, as I can't seem to find any I like. But, I will keep looking.

    So happy you found the kitten all right. Our kitty insists on going outside, but I'm always worried until he's back in.

  5. You look very pretty in this outfit. Glad that miss marshmallow is home safe and sound!


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
