Rocking charity threads

You may have read my previous post in which I showed off my recent charity shop bargains.  Well, the outfits I'm showing today are both centred around charity shop bargains.

First up, this is what I wore last Friday.  It was hot, so I thought my "new" superdry dress would be a good item to wear, but I'm not very good with strapless dresses, so I had to team it with a short sleeved cardi.

La-di-da, staring off into space....



Dress - Superdry via the charity shop
Cardi - H&M (ages old)
Earrings - eBay (years ago)
Necklace - Stella & Dot
Broach - From a suitcase sale
Bracelet - H&M

I was quite pleased with this outfit. I'll admit that after a while I find strapless dresses a little uncomfortable, but this dress was such a bargain, it was worth a little irritation!  I liked the contrast of the yellow against the tartan pattern.  I love to wear my broach, look the birds are flying in the clouds!

My second outfit I wore on Sunday.  Again, it was built around a charity shop bargain, this time a skirt.  Remember last week when I couldn't get Ethan out of my photos?  Well, he insisted on trying to be the photographer this time, so the first shot is his..





Skirt - H&M via the chairty shop
Vest - H&M
Cropped cardigan - Room31
Leggings - George at Asda
Earrings - Room31
Chunky bead necklace - Charity shop
Charm necklace - Stella & Dot
Bag - vintage, my Grandma's
Shoes - Clarks

Have you spotted my new glasses?  Good ol' Gok at Specsavers.   I'm loving them!

I was very happy in this outfit.  The skirt is short and a puffball shape, I always feel like a little girl in puffball shape skirts!  They are fun :)  I just felt this was a very joyful yet smart outfit.

I'm linking up today with Watch What I'm Wearing, Visible Monday and Monday Mingle.
