Boots, coffee and leather

So today, like most days, I go shopping with an open mind…

I start with my usual skim latte [skim? full cream? Does it really matter?] at Coffee Club and their sensational smashed avocado on turkish bread with a side of scrambled eggs. To. Die. For.

I decide to wander to Mimco to check out any new stock… and lo and behold. A blue beauty of a cross body bag hits me for six. You see, with 3 young kids, a cross body bag is my equivalent to a bejewelled evening clutch. It’s either a baby bag or cross body…that’s as glamorous as I get these days.

This baby will be hitting the outlet store in the next week, so I set my alarm on my phone to EXTRA LOUD so I don’t miss out.

I’ve had a few requests for tan ankle boots with a mid heel, so I make my way to Wittner.

You want tan boots. Wittner have them a plenty. At 65% off, why not pick up a tan, black and neutral pair?

I tend to do that…if I find something that I love, I buy one in every colour.

A few doors down is Jo Mercer and all their boots are 25% off. Gorgeous tans and chocolates, zips and textures…it’s hard to pick just one.

I’ve got my eye on an awesome black, ankle zippered ones that will go perfectly with my new outfit from Empty Hanger.

Ahh, Empty Hanger..a gem of a store. With brands such as Nana Judy, Staple the Label and fab accessories, shoes and homewares you can literally put a whole outfit together in the one place.

The staff are lovely and and super helpful… I was looking for a pair of leather looking pants and voila! Pants, top and knit vest all for $180.

As I duck out, I pop into Seed…they get new stock in almost every day. By the boxload. It’s my little ‘just checking to see what’s new…’ before I head home. And what do you know? I find a pair of cool perforated, two tone leather lace ups down to just $23. I’ll take those thank you very much. They’ll look just fine dressing down my leather pants…

As I leave, I remember the huz needed some new shoes…dang, they’ll just have to wait until next time..
