Red And Black Polka Dot Shirt From The Charity

Red And Black Polka Dot Shirt From The Charity Shop. Hello friends, happy Thursday. So how are you today? It is miserable weather here today. Dark and raining. Best get a move on though as just about to go shopping.

We do not usually go shopping every Thursday but Thursday is my day off from work. Also, my daughter’s day off from college and my mum’s day off from work!!

This week we have to go shopping as my mum brought my fur baby brother Freddie an engraved tag for his collar. As the machine was broken he asked if we could come back next week. No need to ask us twice to go shopping!!

Red And Black Polka Dot Shirt From The Charity Shop:

Last week on my mum, daughter and my shopping trip, I picked up this blouse in the charity shop. After all the polka dot colours items of clothing I own, I didn’t own anything red.

Until last Thursday where I picked up this top and a red and black long polka dot dress too. Well big dots, anyway.

This fits perfectly as it was a size 12.

So last week I shared one of my charity dress finds here: Pink Animal Print Dress & A Black Polo Neck Jumper. For Thrifty Thursday. So today, I am sharing what I got last week. this beautiful polka dot blouse.

My dress on the other hand is a little too big. Well as I’m a size 12 clothing size a size 24 is a lot bigger. But you know what? I could see protentional. Also, I can not wait to get the sewing machine on it. I just need to think about what I am doing first!!

Love a good charity find 💕 you might also like this Reel: One Two Three Let’s Go.

What I Wore:

Polka Dot Shirt: Charity Shop || Red Pleated Skirt: Primark || Boots: Tu Clothing || Handbag: Cath Kidston

On Monday we had a day out in Nottingham as it was my husband and my day off work. We went for lunch and a look around the shops. This is what I wore. But I was so cold, can you tell?

So, I got two nice winter coats as it is starting to get cold around here. I picked them up from Primark as every coat I had looked at was Β£100 each. I got two styles that I liked for Β£70.00 the pair. Primark is also trying to be more sustainable and the coats both felt so good quality. Let’s hope so, anyway.

I am really not a fan of shopping at the minute though. As the shops are so busy. Plus it’s starting to get cold outside so then you wear warmer clothes, then melt in the shops. Anyone else or just me?

I am not really buying any new clothes today, well I don’t think so. I will be having a look around the charity shops for a bargain though.

    Loving the black and red together! I am being pretty picky about what I buy lately as I feel like I have lots of clothes. But I do love shopping still.
