Out with the Old & Unworn

Pants: Mr Price; Top: Jay Jay's; Jacket: Meltz;
Bag: The Hub; Necklace: Foschini; Shoes: Woolworths




I'm making headway in the wardrobe cleanse. In fact, I've spent a couple of evenings this week sorting through piles of clothes, while the chicken's in the oven or the washing machine spins. I've been quite the busy body, despite my desperate cries for sleep during the day!

I've taken out at least ten tops, but it's more difficult to part with skirts and dresses. There are a few dresses, though, that have got to go. I've put Winter stuff in an unreachable department, but I'll have to sort through that too. Bags too. If only the "if you don't wear it, let it go" principle was that easy! 

All of the stuff that I'm letting go of will go to the Swap, which is around the corner! If you're in the Johannesburg area and would like to attend - mail me at mrsrogero@gmail.com
Details will follow soon.





Have a great weekend!

Minimalist

Pants & Top: Pure; Shoes: Foschini; Bag: Sowearto; Necklace: Gifted




I've attempted before, and even documented here, how I'd like to live with less clothes. *And now those who know me laugh.* Maybe not less (though I really need less), but more staples - more mix-and-match-ables - less trends - less prints - less florals - I dunno, just less. Okay, so maybe I do mean less. I'm feeling more and more bogged down by clutter and less and less inspired by my wardrobe. I always feel like I have nothing to wear! 

I dream of having basic, investment pieces, with a few statement pieces in my wardrobe. Can I just try to recreate my wardrobe by being harsh and saying - "ok, five skirts, five pants, 5 whatevers, and so on"? Is that how it's done? If it is, I have a tough time ahead of me. If this conversation goes the way it usually does, I'm talking to myself here. If that's the case, call it venting. 

Hopefully I'll come up with a solution soon - and share. I cannot be the only one. Can not.




Thanks to Lerato for these pictures.

Our Second Anniversary



We celebrated our second Wedding Anniversary this weekend, at Sun City Resort. We enjoyed the sunshine all day on Saturday, in and out of the water. When evening came, we dined at the gorgeous Villa del Palazzo - everything about the place is amazing but of course the food won my heart; I cannot pick a single favourite dish because everything is mouthwatering! I highly recommend the restaurant for a special night out. We didn't take any pictures of the latter, but here're some happy sunshine pictures.  











Happy Anniversary my love, my spoiler

Stripes

Skirt: YDE; Vest: Mr Price; Blazer: Identity;
Shoes: China Town; Bag: Vintage


I got this blazer just yesterday, and apparently I woke up in the middle of the night - talking 'in my sleep' - and asked my husband what I'll wear with it. He played along and answered, something bright. And then I went back to sleep.

Sunshine

Skirt: Miss Boss; Top: Mr Price; Shoes: Sissy Boy;
Bag: ALDO; Jewelry: Gifted



I was going to moan about my frustration about the lack of picturesque locations for blog pictures, but I'm going to be grateful for the intrusive sun streaks because pretty soon we'll have dark, wintry skies.   







Hope you're having a lovely day - I cannot wait for the public holiday tomorrow - perfect taste of the second wedding Anniversary celebrations this weekend!
