Casual Fridays...

I was having a very casual day today - basically this is what I look like when I know all I'm gonna be doing is having a quick trip to the shops then sewing/knitting/blogging the rest of the day away...
Blouse - M&S
Jeans - Dorothy Perkins Tall
Shoes - Topshop
I almost never wear these for some reason, so threw them in my bag before heading to Mothers - just realised I'm all in navy, hardly surprising considering half my wardrobe is shades of blue!
Kinda fell in love with this blouse when I first saw it in store a few years ago, so snapped it up and hardly took it off for months.  Think it's having a revival period! ;)

Had a fun trip down the street today (yes, Mothers town has one street of shops...) - discovered a new second hand shop with all clothes half price, got some goodies in the charity shop AND the £1 shop is shutting down so everything was half price - got wool to make a jumper and some thermal socks.  The memories of last winter are still fresh in my mind - think I only started feeling the heat a few weeks ago!  So a basket of 600g of wool, 2 pairs of socks and some....lady products.... came to less than a fiver - loving it!  Gonna check out my local store before work tomorrow and see if they're also shutting down...could increase my wool stash even further!



  1. Love that shirt with the frill, and any opportunity for stash enhancement can't be bad can it?!

  2. lovely shirt, i have twi similar ones and they are so versatile.

  3. You have such good luck with bargains! Imagine how much that wool would have cost you full price.

    Much love for the kitchen posing too. I love just sitting on the work surfaces.

  4. The shirt is fabulous and you look great for a day of doing nothing much.

    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and commenting - I'm always happy to find another tall blogger!

  5. love casual dress days - mine has been pretty much everyday for a year but may now have to make more effort next week when back to work.

    Yay for the half price CS - always a great find! Have a fabulous weekend Scarlett x
