Thrifted skirt, Primark cardigan and tee, H&M tights, Dune shoes, thrifted straw tote, DP belt, Accessorize necklace
It’s not often that the weather reflects the calendar. Well – not in England, anyway. We get sleet in May, blazing sunshine in November and it never snows on Christmas Day. So imagine my surprise when I pulled back the curtains on the first day of spring (today, fact fans) and saw a decidedly spring-like morning! Sunshine! Blue sky! Chirruping birds and leaping lambs! (Maybe not the lambs… I live in an apartment block, not on the set of Emmerdale.) I felt more upbeat instantly, and decided today would be the perfect day to debut my fab new old charity shop bargains.
This skirt was originally from Topshop – the label read £40. Once upon a time, I wouldn’t have even flinched at such a price. My credit card was my friend and that little plastic pal was my ticket to fancy skirts such as this. Now I’ve learnt the error of my ways, I’ll allow myself a smug smile at the price I paid for it – £3.99. It’s my little ray of sunshine, perfect for spring style. I can’t wait to wear it with bare legs and leather gladiator sandals in the summer, either.
Did you reach for something stylishly springy this morning? Or are you clinging on to winter wools? I’d love to know!
PS – The straw tote is my other charity shop bargain at £2.99. Hubba hubba.
