Charity Shop Shirts

If I’ve learnt anything so far in 2016 it is that blogging and winter really don’t go well together. Whenever I’m out ‘n’ about and ready to snap a few pictures, the heavens open or the sun decides to retire for the night at 3pm. To ensure that I didn’t end up with 1 post for the whole of January I had to opt for taking pictures indoors. Due to space issues I decided to do a round-up of my favourite charity shop shirts. A charity shop shirt and black jeans is my go-to outfit for those days I press the snooze button 4 too many times – which, lets be honest, is everyday! So, as well as a little apology for the lack of post, I also want to apologise for the whole loada posing coming up in this post! Let’s all hope the sun comes out some and normal outfit posts may resume!

One of my most worn shirts is the one above from Oxfam. It’s slouchy – so perfect for post Christmas food babies but colourful so kind of looks like I’ve made a little effort, a winner all round in my eyes.

The Oxfam shirt above was the perfect birthday present from my friend and has seen me through colder days the last month. As well as wearing open with skinny jeans and a t-shirt ticked in, I love wearing it fastened with jeans as it involves minimal outfit planning which is great!

This shirt was my best bargain to date. Tucked away on the £1 rail of my local charity shop, I have worn this shirt with all things from my leather skirt to jeans and I just lave it. I don’t think I can say much more about this shirt other than the price-per-wear is probably around 5p so that explains how much I love it!

The shirt above was from Cancer Research UK. I think it looks a whole lot more expensive than the few pounds it rang through the till at. As well as wearing this with my pinafore dress,  I have also loved wearing it with a grey jumper and jeans and think this shirt will see me through to spring and then summer and then back to winter again!

I was immediately drawn to the colours of this shirt when spotting it amongst the rails at Oxfam. Although it instantly screams ice-cream to me I couldn’t help but wear it on the coldest, rainiest of days last week just to brighten things up a little – things getting a little wild round here..!

I feel that shirts are the easiest item to pick up in charity shops as they can be worn fitted but work well oversized too so buying any shirt is totally justifiable – in my charity shop loving eyes anyway!

    I adore that velvet shirt. I wish I got lucky in charity shops but no matter how many times I go in them, I find nothing!
