Another month, another hat, another share with the fabulous Judith Boyd. And the hat? Here it is.
It’s a new one this time. Look. Seriously. I got rid of many hats and other stuff for the move, but clothes and hats are creeping back! Today we’re having a floor-to-ceiling wardrobe installed and I’m so pleased as, with most of my clothes still in boxes, suitcases and temporary racks, I’m not sure where my clothes are or what I’ve got. Not really an excuse to buy more, but I think that’s half the problem. Also, can I inform you, the wardrobe is the first major thing we’re doing, and that’s before the kitchen and bathroom. One has priorities, you know, and a wardrobe comes first in this household!
But the hat is a good buy and going to be so useful over the years as it’s a foldable, rollable, packable hat. This year it’ll be taken to France for my holiday.
See the lovely skirt and top?
They’re sale bargains from Toast in Llandeillo, Wales. Toast is a great outlet and has a strong on-line following, but is seen more and more in the UK high streets selling quite high-end clothes in natural fibres (they’re not paying me to say this!) Llandeillo, which I visit often because we have an elderly relative living there, has the original shop, which has the largest sale area of all the Toast shops. So naturally I rummage through the sale racks every time we go there!
The top wasn’t reduced all that much. I bought it for £38 down from £55, but the skirt was an amazing £35 down from £120 – now that’s a bargain! I teamed it with a belt (also in the sale) and am wearing some soft flat shoes that are really comfortable.
Actually, I am wearing some thrifted, charity shop items – the costume jewellery!
The necklace came from one of those rare charity shops in France, and I’ll take it with me when I go there for my long break. And the bracelets are such fun and worn often.
Btw, apologies for the tip/mess in the right-hand corner, plus the waste-paper basket, so sorry! All part of not having enough storage, which is being sorted today – hooray!
That’s all for now
