This is the first outdoor photo of 2017!

I bought this dress on a reduced price rail last week for £2.50. I rather liked the floral pattern on a blue background. It is also a length that I prefer to make it more modest in appearance.

Although it was a rare sunny afternoon, I soon retreated indoors and added a cardigan to this outfit as it was not that warm. The hours of daylight are now increasing and I am getting the feeling that winter is coming to an end with crocus bulbs now in bloom in a sheltered part of my garden.

Sky Blue

A sky blue short sleeved summer top is my latest charity shop find. It cost £2.50 and had a Velux label which I had not heard of before. I like the shade of blue and the decorative stitching. It seems to compliment my black skirt which has been in my wardrobe for several years.

The weather is actually improving here in the UK and is nearing 10 C with temperatures of 15 C possible next week. It is noticeable how some bright sunshine lifts your mood and I have daffodils in bud in my garden which means spring may just be around the corner.

Office Clothes

As I didn't buy too much this week, I have decided to search through some photos Hannah took last year but didn't get posted at the time.

The white sleeveless top was in a bargain bin for £1.00 and you can't go far wrong at that price. I have had the wide belt for a long time and it gives the top a finishing touch.

It is very unusual to find a pair of trousers in a charity shop which actually fit perfectly so I couldn't believe it when I found this pair of black straight leg trousers which are ideal for wearing to the office. I tend to wear black skirts to work in the warmer weather and trousers once it starts to get cold usually by mid-November. These cost me £4.50 and I have worn them quite often recently.

Do you wear trousers to work more than skirts in the winter?

1st 2017 Charity Shop Purchase

A white dress found in a local charity shop this week has become my first purchase for 2017. Bad weather and feeling a little unwell restricted my tour of the shops in early January. The dress has an interesting decorative collar and will be ideal for evening wear or perhaps outside when it is warmer with a cardigan. I have added a belt as a further feature.

What do you think?
