What I Wore: 11.


Super simple outfit, jeans and a shirt is usually my go to outfit if I want to look like I've actually made a bit of an effort. I have developed quite a large collection of scarfs, picking them up whenever I see them as they don't usually dent the back balance and can sometimes add something to an outfit. Plus they are pretty multi-functional, I'm often sporting a scarf in the hair.

Despite me saying in the previous post about not spending money I'm currently stalking a few pieces on ebay. I'm convincing myself they would be acceptable purchases if I get them super cheap, also a hunt around the charity shops is definitely on the cards. A major plus I find with charity shops is that they are usually quite empty, so much nicer not to have to deal with a shop full of people barging you out the way and queuing for the changing rooms for approximately 17 thousand hours, an exaggeration but thats what it feels like sometimes.

Another shopping bugbear of mine, young girls who hang around in clothes shop, not buying anything just taking photos of themselves and getting in the way. Mission accomplished sounding like and old lady talking about scarfs, charity shops and moaning about the youth of today!

Hope everyone has had a fabulous week.

  9. Nice outfit! I have so many scarves I rarely wear, you've inspired me to start wearing them!

    PS agree about teeny boppers taking photos of themselves in shops, I saw one taking a mirror shot the other day, it actually made me sick...

  27. I really like that shirt, looks great. I've recently started looking around charity shops, haven't found anything as of yet...I was a bit thrown off by how empty it was. I felt like the lady at the till was staring at me as the only customer ha x


    Just a Thought
