Charity shop style: Part 5

Another weekend, another charity shop haul. I spent a total of £4.99 on this little lot:

Bally shoes

Check. These. Out. Black patent Bally block heels priced at £2. After looking at prices for new Bally heels, I feel I should donate a few more pounds to charity to easy my conscience slightly, especially as they came in a buy one get one free offer with the fabric below, so actually only cost me £1!



For £1 I couldn’t leave this beautiful fabric in the shop. No idea what I’m going to use it for yet, but I’ll add it to my fabric stash for when the right project comes up!

My most expensive find this weekend at £2.99. I love printed blouses, and this one is just patterned enough without being too bold. It’s got a bit of a 70s vibe going on too.


All this is doing me no favours in trying to reduce the size of my wardrobe, but I have donated a lot recently, and I can never resist a bargain!

OOTD: Jumpsuit Tuesday

Just a quick post with my OOTD.

This combo is super comfortable, and lightweight, so I won’t get too warm in this little bit of sunshine we’re having today!

This outfit is perfect for spending the day in with the little one and doing a few odd jobs round the house (which is my plan for today), and practical for when we go for a walk round the block later on.

I love simple outfits like this which I can throw on and still feel a little bit stylish even though I might only be doing the hoovering!
