Sam teamed the look with a light grey cardigan while strolling along in designer leather brown flats. 

Her blonde locks were scraped back into a tight high ponytail, and she completed the look with a simple coat of makeup. 

After shopping up a storm at the popular complex, Sam appeared satisfied as she carried purchases from the fashion retailer Country Road back to her car. 

The sighting comes after she announced her engagement to beau Richard on Sunday.

Sam flaunted her engagement ring in a smitten picture uploaded to her Instagram account.

When she returned to Sunrise on Tuesday, she told co-host David ‘Kochie’ Koch that her fiancé had proposed on the spur of the moment ‘weeks ago’ in the paddock of his rural property in the NSW Southern Highlands.

Sam said they’d held back until Sunday to make the announcement because they were waiting for the personalised ring to arrive. 

On Tuesday, later that day, the breakfast TV presenter told The Kyle and Jackie O Show that she had, in fact, helped design the gorgeous sparkler.

When radio host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson asked if she’d chosen the ring, Sam said: ‘He [Richard] choose the diamond, and I gave him a little bit of help with the design – because, you know Jackie, a girl wants what a girl wants!’

 ‘But he did very well, he choose beautifully, I was very happy,’ the Channel Seven journalist added.

A jeweller from House of K’dor estimated the cushion-cut sparkler may have cost as much as $80,000.

‘The stone size looks to be about 2 carat [and] based on other factors such as clarity and colour, this could set you back anywhere between $20,000 and $80,000,’ the jeweller told Daily Mail Australia.

The expert continued: ‘It’s slightly elongated shape, and soft round edges create the illusion of a larger stone that a round-brilliant cut stone of the same carat weight may due to larger surface area reflect light.’

The jeweller also said that the cushion-cut is ‘brilliant as it showcases a diamond’s fire and sparkle with its 58 facets’.

Samantha and Richard, who began dating in April last year after meeting at a party, confirmed their romance to WHO magazine in November.
