Today was my first day helping out at one of my local charity shops – whoop! It was a really good afternoon despite the torrential rain. I mastered the use of the till and so got to serve some lovely customers, I did a ton of washing up, I also did a few displays and got to talk to the loveliest locals. There is a sweet man who comes in at the same time every day to just sit, have a biscuit and chat to the workers/volunteers. Today he asked me if I liked birds and I just stared blankly at him… It look me far too long to realise he meant my top!
This is the first time I have included my new coat in an outfit of the day post. It is from Matalan and it was only £20 and I love it. It has a lovely silky lining and just feels great on.
I did a bit of shopping…
I knew this was going to happen and it did! I couldn’t be surrounded by lovely charity shop bargains and not buy something!
I got a gorgeous little blue and yellow flower vase that is now brightening up my windowsill. I also got a gorgeous floral top and some deep purple corduroy trousers. The trousers aren’t very flattering (I don’t think trousers are flattering on me at the best of times anyway as I have such short legs) and so I am going to make them into shorts. Keep an eye out for a new DIY!
How is your week going?
