I hope to be able to continue to post on my charity shop finds in 2017. Everyone knows that I am a charity shop addict and cannot resist touring the local shops each lunchtime! For my readers in the USA charity shops are rather like your thrift shops. People donate their unwanted items and the shops sell them with the proceeds going to support the charity.
I have had the opportunity to go through my wardrobe during the break from work and will donate a bag of my clothes and another bag of Hannah and Henry's clothes which they have outgrown. My husband never likes to throw anything away and wears clothes until they are well beyond the end of their life and therefore not suitable for resale! Are other men like that?
We all return to work/school on Tuesday. We have enjoyed the break and, as the weather has been really bright and sunny, we have managed a number of good healthy walks in the countryside. My husband has also booked a family break to Scotland at Easter. We love Scotland with its wonderful scenery and as Easter is much later this year (mid April) the weather should be warmer and days a little longer.
My charity shop find in this post was actually purchased in November. I have a number of tunic tops and liked the colour of this one. It cost about £3.00 - £3.50. I would have preferred it to be a little longer to cover my rear when I wear trousers in public to increase modesty but I am gradually becoming less self conscious of that issue. It is now over three years since I started to wear trousers which does not seem possible!
I added the belt to add interest and as without it I felt that the tunic made me look rather large!
What do you think?
