COLLABMAS DAY 8 : CHRISTMAS SHOPPING HAUL.

Hey guys what is up? Welcome right back so today I’m doing my second collaboration with Kayla whom I totally love. For this collaboration we are doing a Christmas shopping haul. I’m very excited for this one actually because I don’t get to suck at it like my cookies did. Do go and check out our last one here. So I haven’t been shopping much actually because I’ve been working so I haven’t had much time but here’s what I bought.

Bodysuit.
So I bought this bodysuit mainly because I don’t have clothes this colour but as soon as I tried it on I fell in love with it. It’s got this curtain kind of thing in the front which I really love because you don’t see a lot of clothing with it. I did buy this on black Friday so I bought it for R83.99

Top
Okay so I’ve been searching around for this top for long. My mom loves these tops but whenever we tried buying a top like this we just ended up putting it back, whether it was too faded, the colour wasn’t nice or it was too big. So I’ve gotten the chance to get one like this. When I saw this one I literally just grabbed it because the colour is firstly awesome and it looked good on my skin tone so yeah. I did buy this shirt for R69.99

Shirt.
Okay so I’ve been so obsessed with long cover ups and jackets this year so when I saw this one at Mr Price, I literally died. I was like no, let’s leave everything else, all I want is this. I also love the fact that its not a colourful shirt meaning it goes with my colour scheme and that I could actually style it in many different ways. This shirt was only R169.99.

The last casual thing that I bought was this green striped dress that had this raised collar (I forgot the name lol). I bought this at Legit for R84.01 and my mom is actually the one who said I must try it on. At first I was like mhmm no but as soon as I put it on guys I was like yow! You’re coming with me. Firstly the colour and the fact that it is a bodycon was an A+

Now I recently started working at some company, so as a teenager I didn’t have any work clothes so I ended up using all my money on that. So I’m gonna incorporate all of that into this haul because otherwise this haul would have been short.

Blouse.

I only bought one blouse mainly because the prices were insane so I ended up buying this checkered blue blouse that gave a lot of air and space. I really love this blouse because the material is kind of that formal classy kind and it is blue meaning I can style it in many different ways.

Heels.
I bought these heels for R329.99 at Edgars and at first I wasn’t sure about them because they’ve got such a small heel and I’m about that big life however when I put them I actually saw how stunning they looked, especially since I have thin feet. So I actually love them.

Pants
So the first pair of pants that I bought were from Topshop Edgars and I bought them for R249.95 which was a complete bargain because the original price was R469 so I was very happy about that. Theses pants are in a standard navy blue colour and I like that because they are standard you can wear a different top everyday and people would still think that you’re wearing something different.

Then I also bought these standard black pants also which have the same cut as the above pants just that these ones are a black colour. I also bought them for the same reason as the above. These pants however were R399

The last pair of pants I bought was a funky colour, just to balance out the boring days. The colour of these pants actually pulled me in because I’m currently obsessed with such colours. Theses pants however are tight as if you’re wearing leggings of some sort so that was kind of an off. But I still love them wholey. I also bought them at a bargain because the original price was R799 and I got them for R425.

Yuup guys so that is my Christmas haul. I know I don’t have candles and Christmassy stuff but I’m a savage so I’m gonna definitely call it a Christmas haul. Lol comment down below what is the not so christmassy thing you’ve bought in December. Don’t forget to go and check out KaylaHope’s blogppost and her instagram. She’s such a sweet child so go make friends with her.

COLLABMAS DAY 3: CHRISTMAS LOOK BOOK. 

Hey guys what is up?! Welcome to collabmas day three!! So today I am collaborating with aesthetically_s and we are doing a Christmas lookbook. I’ve just checked out her looks and my goodness they all look great. We do have completely different time zones so hers was posted a few hours earlier. 

I celebrate a different kind of Christmas, that’s more casual and not dressy so I’m kind of clueless on Christmas clothing but I did try to incorporate all types of styles into the 4 look’s.  
The first look I have is this boyish clean look that I think any family would appreciate. Honestly it is very simple and comfortable but you still look stylish. 

WHAT I’M WEARING. 

CHECKEREDSHIRT – MRP 

JEANS – FACTORIE

SHOES – SPORTSCENE 

The second outfit that I’m wearing is more for if you have to wear a dress. I bought this dress on Black Friday and I’ve been loving it forever since. At first I was in doubt but a’s time went I actually started loving it.

WHAT I’M WEARING.

DRESS – LEGIT.

SHOES – SPORTSCENE 

The next outfit I have is more for a wintery Christmas. We never have a cold Christmas in South Africa but I know lots of other countries do so I wanted to add something a little more warm so that I can incorporate all different traditions. 
WHAT I’M WEARING. 

JACKET – EDGAR’S 

SHIRT – MR PRICE 

LEGGINGS – MR PRICE 

SCARF – MR PRICE

SHOES – SPORTSCENE 

The third outfit is also a bit more casual but summery. A playsuit would be the perfect thing to wear in South Africa because it is so hot and what’s nice is that you can make it either casually or formally depending on you.

WHAT I’M WEARING.

PLAYSUIT – MR PRICE 

SHOES – SPORTSCENE 

Lol I swear I am not sponsored by Mr price or sportscene lol I just seem to go buy all my things from them.Yuup guys so that is today’s blog post! I hope you guys liked it and that you found some type of inspiration. Don’t forget to check out Aesthetically_s’ blog post because honestly her outfits all look great and follow her on instagram too she’s really sweet.
