August Outfit Post

It has to be said that I love August. Getting to have some quality time with my little boy is always a pleasure, plus it is also the month of my wedding anniversary, and we spend at least one week in Wales enjoying Summer. So whilst, in weather terms, it was far from a scorcher, there were still lots of opportunities to have a lot of family fun, and, with a few events thrown into the mix, it is a month that I’m already missing, especially as Autumn has arrived with cold, winds and lots of rain.

In terms of fashion, there were a few new additions to my wardrobe, but generally I have been hitting the charity shops with a vengeance. I had an extensive wardrobe clearout in August and donated around eight sacks of clothing and shoes to a local charity shop, but this has only made space for some more pieces, which is always a dangerous thing to do. That said, a positive of my cull was that I found lots of things that I’d completely forgotten about, which is a little like buying something new.

Two charity shop bargains were the black vintage M&S dress and the dotted dress. The black dress was a vintage St Michael label and still has the original tags on. I wore it twice last month, so for £4.99, it has already paid for itself. The dotted dress was a catalogue label, also still with tags, probably from the 1980s, but with a real fresh modern feel.

What sort of style did you opt for in August?
