As you know, I’m moving to a much smaller place and, therefore, de-cluttering and downsizing big-time. I’ve been so good. Loads of clothes, ornaments and kitchen crockery, plus other things, have gone to charity shops to be recycled and loved by someone else. However, some stuff (coughs nervously – we’re talking about clothes) have started coming back into the house! But gaps in my wardrobe are not being filled up, as for every garment I bring in, two go out – yes, I really mean that. I’ll write more on this as you have to be strong!
And I’ve found some great bargains. To start with I bought two skirts at £3.99 each. They’re hardly worn and have an M&S Woman label.
This blue one with the houndstooth check will be for later in the day, as the dark blue material has a slight sheen to it.
Also I’ve bought some ‘new’ ankle boots which are actually a size too big. I put two insoles inside and can wear them but I’m not sure. However, they cost only £6.50, and are suitable for those damp, grey and misty Spring days that we have a lot in the UK.
Then this green one is such fun.
I love the colour green and have many tops that will go with it. A tip. Try not to impulse buy in a charity shop (I mean you can, it’s good to experiment). But keep this in mind, that it’s best to look for clothes that integrate with your current wardrobe.
Then I found this jacket.
I think it’s great for those days when it looks so inviting with that azure blue sky and the sun shining, but in actuality it’s really cold. The jacket is padded, but has that Spring-like look and cost the same as the boots – £6.50.
And I teamed it with the blue scarf and a blue beret. So, I had a bit of spending spree (just over £20) but I have outfits rather than random buys. Plus there are two big bags of clothes and another with paperbacks waiting to go to my local charity shop. As I’ve said before, it’s a win-win situation!
That’s all for now – have a great week!
