New In: My Wardrobe

New In My WardrobeHappy Friday lovelies! As you can probably guess from the title of today’s post I’m going to be talking about some new pieces of clothing I’ve purchased in the last month. I am someone who believes you don’t have to spend a lot of money to have nice clothes and I always try and buy when there’s a sale on – I am a huge bargain hunter! These items are all practical, key pieces every girl needs in her wardrobe. (That’s what I tell myself anyway!) Let’s get started!

Bella Beanie - Navy1. Bella Beanie – Navy | $8.36

My Winter Beauty Wishlist shows a picture of a black beanie I had settled on after having no luck in the navy blue department. I originally wanted a navy blue one as I could pair it with a navy blue jumper and a pair of black leggings or a nice pair of blue jeans, a jacket and some boots. I saw this ‘Bella’ beanie from Cotton On and instantly fell in love! I like that it’s quite fitted but still slouchy and the pom pom on top isn’t too big and doesn’t take over. I can’t wait to wear this out and about!

Sara Suedette Biker Jacket2. Sara Suedette Biker Jacket | $62.30

One thing I didn’t have in my wardrobe was a smart jacket. I have a parka, a puffa jacket, a semi-casual button up jacket, a blazer and a bright raspberry trench coat but no smart jacket. The biker style is something I’ve never tried before either but I must admit I do like the way it looks. It’s casual but semi-formal and fitted all at the same time. Being suedette, the material is velvety soft and I chose this lovely grey colour. This jacket can be done up or worn unzipped but personally I think it looks cool unzipped.

Grey Jeans3. Grey Jeggings | $15

The pair of jeggings on the left are the pair I purchased and the pair of jeans on the right are the inspiration behind the purchase. The jeans on the right hand side are from Dannii Minogue’s Petites clothing range and while they are stunning, I’m never one to turn down a bargain! I actually prefer the elastic waist and the style of jeggings as leggings are one of my favourite things to wear and are so comfortable. I also managed to save myself 50 bucks! I’ve worn these jeggings a few times already and the picture doesn’t do justice to how lovely they look on.

Dannii Active Mesh Top4. Dannii For Target Active Mesh Tank – Black | $14.10

One of my favourite things about exercise is buying workout gear! I only own one other tank top and it was hard not to be tempted by this one when Dannii Minogue and the fact it’s for petites is involved. I love how it’s not your ordinary black tank top (black’s meant to look slimming right?) It also features mesh panels and a reflective animal print back panel – hence the picture on the right. Working out in style here I come!

Grey T-shirt

5. Dannii For Target Frock & Roll T-Shirt | $11.20

How cute is the slogan on this tee? When I first saw this tee I loved the simple but cute message and I’m so pleased I was able to pick this up; for a great price too! This is the kind of piece that can be styled casually or dressed up with a skirt and pair of heels. Over the past couple of years I’ve incorporated a fair bit of grey into my wardrobe and I’ve really come to appreciate how good it looks. The rolled up cuffs are also a nice added touch.

What’s the latest addition to your wardrobe?

    That biker jacket looks amazing – love the colour and the details.
    That Frock + Roll tshirt is cute too.
    I haven’t bought clothes in ages! I went to a shop yesterday where the whole place was 40% off but couldn’t decide on anything – almost picked up a pair of shorts and a blouse but ultimately decided against it…. I just wasn’t in the mood.

      The colour is lovely and a bit unusual for a jacket which is part of the reason I was drawn to it 🙂 I don’t usually buy clothes a lot but I’ve been feeling better about the way I look recently and the things I have bought caught my eye because I don’t have other pieces like them. I bet the blouse and shorts looked lovely on you!

    That grey jacket is absolutely amazing! It’s so classy yet it still has that hint of edge. It’s perfect, Chanelle. 🙂
    I completely agree with you that it is unnecessary to spend tons of money to have lovely clothing.
    My most recently purchases in the clothing department was a burgundy slouchy beanie from Cotton On and one of their bralettes. Cotton On is just wonderful! 🙂 xx

      Cotton On is a place I’ve been turning to frequently over the past year or so. It’s been around for ages but it was somewhere I’d often dismissed in the past. It’s cool they have Cotton On in South Africa – or do you buy online? X

        We do actually have quite a few Cotton On shops here as well as Factorie and Typo which you probably know as well then. We have one of each in all the main malls here and I love them. Cotton On is my absolute favourite though. I find that Factorie’s sizes are a bit strange but Cotton on just has such a great variety of styles and brilliant basics for very reasonable prices and their sizes are wonderful! I struggle to find clothing which fits me properly and their clothing is just spot on. For that reason, I have also been turning to it quite often recently.
        It’s the same situation as you have where it’s been around for ages but you just never really turned to it until now. 🙂 x
