just like the thoughts of my mind

Ahoy sailor – one skirt, two looks

Having picked this skirt up for 50p at the carboot yesterday I wanted to wear it as soon as possible, thanks to the warm (ish) weather I was able to wash and dry it in time to put it on for work this morning and a then keep on wearing it this evening after a quick restyle:

Skirt 50p carboot sale
New Look Batwing cardi 50p table top sale
TopShop Black vest 99p charity shop
Miss Selfridge Shoes £2 carboot sale
Bangle and necklace carboot finds

Skirt 50p carboot sale
TopShop shoulderless nautical top £2.99 charity shop
TopShop Nautical themed jacket £8.50 charity shop
New Look Deck Shoes 50p carboot
Scarf 25p carboot sale

£8.50 for a jacket is quite rich for me; in fact it’s very rich for me. I was walking past a charity shop and it was on display in the window, the volunteer said that she’d only put it out half an hour before I’d spied it. I tried to justify it to myself “think how much a TopShop jacket would have cost new etc etc” I loved it as soon as I set eyes on it, and after trying it on and it being a perfect fit I simply couldn’t walk away.

So there you go, one skirt, two very different looks

I kinda wish I'd worn the nautical one to work...it's much more fun!

Ta Ta for now

You've got such styling abilities Queenie! It's a fab skirt to start off with but both looks are amazing. The nautical one is so sassy.

Love the scarf and that gorgeous jacket was worth every penny, perfect!
Love your styling and your hair is looking fabulous.
I've made a note of the dye you recommended, it's on offer in Boots at the mo.
