#AlmostPoshStyleCost : July

July 29, 2016

After something that came very close to No-Buy June, July saw a return to normal retail activity as I enjoyed some sales and a competition prize.

Shopping | Almost Posh

Firstly, I hit up Rivers during a sale and nabbed the fox print pyjama pants (not included in total costings as are pyjamas and don't count) and a much-sought-after pair of trackie pants.

Plus these bad boys for $20.

And this super comfortable, perfect fitting striped top.

Later that day, I found the pictured scarf and a 3-pack of belts at Kmart that included a perfect match for the Rivers boots which was most pleasing. I also got this jumper, worn with the aforementioned Rivers trackies. I don't mind telling you, I have lived in this combo during the cold weather.

Pleased with my haul and having snared a $5 reward voucher, I returned later that week to Rivers and picked up this sassy knit dress that I wore to the screening of Embrace: The Documentary which I highly recommend you seeing.

I also finally fulfilled my promise to myself to get a pair of gumboots. Typically, it then didn't rain for two weeks, however we're good now. Adelaide has officially received more rainfall by now than it did in the whole of 2015 and we still have four months to go!

I also won this blanket wrap in an Instagram competition thanks to Toddlers Plus Teens and Millers. It was twice taken to the airport to pick up relatives returning from warmer climates.

Since my love of ponte pants and fleece-lined tights knows no bounds, I've been keeping an eye out for tunics and picked up this merino knit one at ALDI of all places.
