It’s been a while. After being struck down by a fairly bad cold a few weeks ago, I have been struggling to find the energy to get dressed. Let alone get dressed, add a little make-up and prance around taking snaps of myself…! However, last weekend I managed to get myself up and about. Dressed in almost entirely charity shop, I saw it as a good opportunity to get this dusty corner of the interweb up and running again.
Prior to being resided to my bed and coughing up all sorts, I had ventured into Barnardo’s and picked up this spotty vintage shirt thinking it would look great with cut-off Levi’s for those summer holidays – not that I am wishing away the months, mind. During my trip, I also picked up an equally dotty skirt (albeit, with a slightly different size of polka dots). I didn’t really buy the skirt with the intention of pairing it with this shirt. However, after a little ‘trying on all my second-hand purchases’ session, I realised I liked the combination of the contrast in polka dots. Since it wasn’t quite possible to spend longer that ten minutes sans jumper with Storm Doris being a not to distance memory, I threw on the comfiest cream jumper from Oxfam. The skirt, jumper and shirt are some of my favourite second-hand purchases of 2017 so far. Here’s to many, many more!
