#StyleCostProject: May

June 05, 2018

I think we can safely call it, the cold weather is properly here so it's all about layers, layers and more layers.

May is a fun month - it includes Mothers Day and our wedding anniversary. So here's a bonus pic of me and Miss L in our coordinating knits from the Target kid's section. We had a lovely lunch with my parents at Paracombe Premium Perry - a pear orchard not far from us in the Adelaide Hills - who open their shed door for woodfired pizzas, cider and other delicious drinks on Sundays. It was a great day!

Being warm is totally my jam and if I don't have to sacrifice style, even better. I was pleased to be sent this super cozy aviator jacket from Suzanne Grae as a limited edition Mothers Day release and I can see myself getting this out whenever I'm forced outside in inclement weather.

I got an invitation to attend the Katies VIP Shopping Event in Rundle Mall, hosted by Sonia Styling, and thought it would be a good opportunity to boost my stocks for AW18 with 40% off everything and that I certainly did!

First, this long sleeved dress, from $59 down to $22.50. It's super dark navy, not black as I originally thought but I'm not mad. It's also no longer available online. Soz.

Also from the sale rack and no longer available online, I grabbed a grey marle foil print split back tee. I love grey marle AND foil print and to get a good quality one with a little bit of jazzy detail that elevates it from your average dag-around-the-house tee for a mere $14.50 is most pleasing.

I also got a black shirt but I have neither a photo or a link to show you so you'll just have to take my word for it. Oh, and these cute earrings:

Speaking of cute, the hero piece of the shopping haul, this biker jacket is a gorgeous colour - "powder primrose" since you ask - and I have a feeling you'll be seeing a lot of it this season. I've had a good run with my black Katies moto jacket bought at the last event I went to but it's great to get something in a new season colour. This was one of my favourite outfits of the month.

Also pictured, the tan I Love Billy boots I got at Williams for 25% off, bringing them down to about $62. I had been looking for a good pair of tan ankle boots for a while so that was a satisfying get.

I went back to Harris Scarf after the wine knit jumper I got last month and found the same style in a grey and white stripe, still at the reduced price of $16.25 which was, again, jolly pleasing.

Also pictured, the Sophie light wash distressed jeans that I went to three different Targets in search of before finally capitulating and getting them via click and collect. The ankle grazer length is the perfect one for me and they have just the right amount of distress.

Finally, in terms of accessories, I was sent these lava diffuser bracelets by South Australian start-up business, DreamPigeon. A review will follow shortly.

Well, I say "finally" and I had all but wrapped up this post and spending for the month until I saw this dress from Katies was half price and I had a $5 reward voucher, bringing it down to $24 so I'd have been a fool not to. It's not online anymore either but you might snag it in store.
