Autumn in the Spring

Hello there.  Just thought I'd pop by with some pics of yesterday's outfit.

This top arrived yesterday so I thought I'd build my outfit around it.   I ended up sporting definite autumnal shades despite the weather being gloriously sunny, mild and very springlike.

So overjoyed at the sunshine I felt an impromptu twirl was required (I clearly had some time on my hands).

I wore:-

Peter Pan collar top - Next sale.  I also have one in pink
Skirt - vintage St Michael via charity shop 
Tights & bag - New Look
Shoes - Dorothy Perkins via Ebay
Jacket - Ebay
Squirrel brooch - Miss Selfridge
Necklace - Primark

I met up with my sister in Crosby, a small town on the outskirts of Liverpool, for a spot of charity shopping.

Picked up the following from Freshfields Animal Rescue:-

I know, right!  They had so much of this type of stuff for a charity shop, I could have bought a lot more.  Unfortunately, they're very savvy about their pricing so my frugal side stopped me buying up a skip full!

I can see me making more trips up that neck of the woods in the near future though!


I've shared my thrifted finds over on Sophie Isobel's gorgeous blog Her Library Adventures
Go take a look at the other fabulous finds xx

Enjoy what's left of the weekend
