Summer Trousers

No real charity shop bargains this week so just for a change I thought I would post on an item of clothing I actually bought new in a High Street shop!

I had some vouchers for my birthday back in March and over the Easter Holidays we went shopping. Hannah and Henry needed some new school clothes and I bought these trousers with my vouchers. Trousers that fit properly without the need for alterations are not easy to find in charity shops although I have been lucky occasionally. 

Regular readers of my blog are all too familiar with my love of turquoise so when I saw these cotton trousers in my size I just had to buy them. They may be a little tighter than I normally like but they are so comfy and lightweight, ideal for the warmer weather.  I am not so self conscious of my bottom showing when I wear trousers as I was when I first started to wear them. I did not really have any trousers suitable to wear in the summer so I am sure these will get lots of wear in the next few months. They are a George label and cost about £15.00.

Are they something you would wear?

White on Black

I was pleased to buy this dress in a charity shop this week. It is rather a bold pattern with large white spots on a black background. I am not sure if it qualifies as polkadot. Anyway, it is my ideal length and has a high neckline to add modesty. It also has a contrasting white belt which adds a finishing touch. It is sleeveless which means I need to add a cardigan until the weather really warms up.

It cost me £4.50 and the label is "Morley"

What do you think?

Mauve Dress

No sign of anything in turquoise this week!

My latest charity shop find is this mauve dress. It is a relatively new colour for me but it is knee length with a high neck line to make it modest. It has a Phillips label which I have not come across before but it seems to be good quality. It cost me £4.50 and will be ideal for wearing at weekends during the summer.

Summer Jacket

I bought this jacket in the autumn and have just brought it out of my wardrobe. You can often get good bargains in charity shops when they sell off their end of season stock and this summery jacket only cost me £2.75! The shop obviously didn't want to store it through the winter.

It is ideal for wearing at this time of the year when it can still be a little chilly at times. I think that the bright pattern is rather cheerful. Do you like it?
