May Outfit Posts



May was busy. In fact, May was an extremely busy month. It was filled with press shows, events and family time, and it also featured some sunshine, and weather that was decidedly sunny – hurray! That said, it almost ruined the Bank holiday by pouring with a rain storm that can only be described as biblical, which was a shame, as the Friday before the Whitsun bank holiday was hot, hot, hot. I was in Wales for the Bank holiday and have to say we had two nice days, and in Britain, two out of three isn’t bad.

In terms of my wardrobe, May was filled with lots of my vintage and charity shop buys as I finally embraced my summer wardrobe.  There were a few new pieces, including my white skirt from TK Maxx that has a fifties prom feel, and the lovely Topshop dress that has a Bardot style neckline and a lovely silver thread running through it. But in general, this has been a month of bargain spotting, from the culottes that I got thinking they were a skirt, pricely sum £2.49, to the Louboutins that almost had me salivating (£25), and the red 1980s pleated skirt that is so lovely and cost just £1.99 from a Compton Hospice shop. I love having fun with fashion and generally think I have more fun rummaging than I do shopping the High Street.

What did you get this month? Do you ever vintage or charity shop?

  3. I love the outfits you’ve worn this May. You’re really encouraging me to experiment more and wear different outfits. I’m guilty of wearing the same things all the time! x

  4. I love the white skirt in the first picture. It’s really pretty, but easy to dress up or down too.

  5. Always looking great! I usually work from home in my pajamas! I definitely need to take a page out of your book. Looking fab! x
