Shopping at lunchtime is quite a mission where I work. It takes about 10 minutes to get to your car and get out of the parking… and then it’s more than a mission to get parking in Sandton City.  It’s always bedlam there. So I don’t often do this any more.

This week I was determined to just do it. I booked time in my calendar so that no-one could steal my time, and went with a colleague to Sandton with a plan.

And it was a success!

In just over an hour, I managed to find…

  • A dress for me to wear at my sister’s wedding in 3 weeks time.
  • A new dress for work… that wasn’t part of the plan but I couldn’t resist
  • lunch
  • Shoes that will be suitable for the boys (my two and the other little little page boy) to wear at the wedding, I’m just going to have to bring them with me to try them on.

I do need to get out more often… but OWM I spent a fortune in that short period of time!

If you’re wondering where the dresses are from in the images… Forever New and Jo Borkett. The little dress I bought for work was from Zara… and if you know Sandton at all… that means we traversed most of the mall!
