This post is a bit late, apologies, but I have been very busy. And hey, do you notice something about this post – the typeface is darker and, yay, we’ve changed the theme and we are, we think (and we hope) over the IT problems that have bothered us for many weeks now. I also hope the darker type is easier to read – so important!
How’s the weather with you? Here in the UK it’s been unseasonably warm for days if not weeks, so much so that when my good friend Lisa came round to try on hats I wore a thin dress – in late October!
I rather like that hat, but most of my winter coats are dark. I’ll have to look for a camel coloured coat or even a brown one. I did have a camel hair coat (charity shop of course) but it went in one of my throw-out phases. I sometimes think I get rid of far too much! Imho you can never have too many coats!
Also in my little patch of a garden the lobelia is still flowering.
That small shrub with the yellow berries is a Pyracanthus and it’ll grow like topsy to over 6′. This entire area is a work in progress so it looks a bit scrubby at the moment but I have plans and it will look completely different by next summer. But see a foxglove is still flowering.
Actually it is getting a bit cooler. Now, while all this warm weather has been welcome, what with the increase in the price of our energy bills and the fact that we are not having to put any heating on, I’m personally glad to feel a cold wind on my face and see the temperatures dropping. And to celebrate that cooler weather I have bought two new charity shop coats.
I’ll show you one now.
This is a Zara coat and it is thin and unlined, so it is just right to wear at the cusp of cooler weather. I like the long length.
I think I’ve got my London mojo back! Yes, I wore this outfit up to London – more about that trip in my end of the month November review.
And these are the accessories. The hat was bought new from Galeries Lafayette in Toulouse, the necklace was bought from the V&A shop some years ago. Bracelet and ring were charity shopped.
And here is a closer look at my new bootees, which went well I think with the skirt 🙂
The bootees were bought from Schuropody and are sooooo comfortable.
That’s all for now. With love, Penny, the Frugalfashionshopper
