good buys


today i want to share with you some good finds i came across while having a quick look in supre the other day. feeling a bit daggy in the middle of winter, clothes getting a bit tired i just happened to try on a couple of things. this is what came home with me.




these days i'm really into comfort. i love this classic style, cream garter stitch knit, comfortable over these jeans & covers the middle aged middle ;) 




skinny jeans and me don't usually mix. it's a fashion i've been happy to leave to my daughter, until now. jeans sure have come a long way! remember the torture we used to go through squeezing into tight fitting jeans? 
these ones are super stretchy & amazingly comfortable. this is not an ad.. just something i recommend you go and try on if you haven't already.


vintage racquets..can you believe we once actually used these? 

i'm liking them in our entry & glad we hung onto them. 

i finally figured out how to reply to your comments thanks to simone @ honeynfizz for letting us know it can be done on blogger.
so glad i can now leave a reply :)

  4. I would love that sweater. Very classic and beachy. What brand are the jeans? I have such trouble finding THE perfect ones. Love your bag too. I have a similar one I picked up in Venice Beach in California.

    1. hi laura, the jeans are from an australian shop supre. usually a place where young girls shop. they are super stretchy and feel like you're wearing leggings rather than jeans. x

  5. It just goes to show - you need to look in all the shops not just my usual ones.
    The only thing with hitting reply is - does the person know you replied, or does it just appear on the blog?

  10. You've captured everything that I love about summer and lazy days.

    I'm hoping you'll share how you get the 'reply' to show up with the comments. It baffles me and I would love to have it on my comments. Hope you have a great day.

  17. What a pretty outfit--I love the knit sweater, and finding the right pair of jeans that look good on you makes all the difference in the world. I have tried on so many different kinds of jeans, but there are a couple of brands that I discovered that really work for me. Really inconvenient the way clothes are all sized a little differently--I end up having to work my way through everything in 3 sizes to see which one actually fits, usually!
