Hello friends, Happy Thursday. So how are you today? Hi, I am Claire if you are new here and I created Claire Justine in 2011.

I hope you enjoy reading my posts as much as I love writing them. Please leave a comment below and share your thoughts with us.

Today is also, Thrifty Thursday, so this is where my mum, daughter and I go shopping, charity shop, shopping!!

Love Thursdays as you never know what you will find in the Charity shops. So much fun. And family time, too.

Choosing Sustainable Style.

So the goal of sustainable fashion, also referred to as eco-friendly or ethical fashion, is to lessen the damaging effects that the fashion industry has on both the environment and society.

It attempts to produce clothes and other items that are produced with more attention to social, ethical, and environmental issues.

So buying second-hand clothes is a great way of having something new to you but not brand new, has already been made so not producing anything new. How cool.

Unveiling the Story of My Zara Shirt Dress from the Charity Shop.

Embracing Second-Hand Chic with My Zara Shirt Dress. Love a good charity shop find. This Zara shirt dress which I found a few days before my holiday, was such a great buy!!

I took it to Lanzarote and loved wearing it. You can see more from our holiday in this Instagram Reel here:

Great start to summer for us.

A family holiday with all my 4 children, one of my son’s girlfriend, mum, and mother-in-law.

Thanks, Apple for making me this beach day video.

How My Zara Shirt Dress from the Charity Shop Became a Wardrobe Staple?

It is great for wearing away on holiday with your swimwear underneath and a great go-to dress at home because it’s not too warm and oh-so comfy to wear.

Thrifted Treasure:

I also got some real bargains today, including a white polka dot jumpsuit, navy blue polka dot cardigan, white pinstripes trousers, prink floaty boho skirt, a really big flamingo scarf, and lots of bargains off the £1.00 rail. So exciting.

The sun is even out so I can chuck them straight into the washing machine and start wearing them ASAP.

    This is such a pretty shirt dress and will work in cooler weather with leggings or jeans under too! I love the bright color of the flowers against the stripes. I love finding thrifting pieces that I know I will wear a lot.

      Thanks lovely, yes it would look great with jeans too.

    I love to shop second hand, but almost always do it online. But that is less fun then in actual shops. Great choice! That’s a very pretty dress!
