February. The shortest month but also one of the busiest. With half term falling at the end of the month I had to fit work around Joe’s soccer camp, football presentations and half term treats – this was one of those month’s when I really missed being at home, it seemed like I was out so much.
Clothing wise, there has been a mixture of casual and dressy, and I found that the shops were still full of bargains as the sales continued. I’m currently avoiding Spring as it doesn’t feel anywhere near warm enough to be wearing pastels and thinner clothing. That said, some of my best charity shop finds were in softer muted shades, including the pleated skirt that cost just £1 from a charity shop, and the two pieces that I found in the Heart Foundation store. I also found a lovely short sleeved red and white dress from the 1970s, this looks so lovely on and was another £1 bargain – I mean, what can you really buy for a pound???
Sales buys include the black Bardot dress I wore for the Thriller Live press night, and my new favourite pieces – the lilac Topshop frilled sweatshirt and the pink velour number from H&M, which looks so nice with the white floaty skirt. I got the two H&M pieces for £15 and know I will wear them lots this Spring.
I’m really looking forward to the weather getting warmer and being able to add some more Springlike pieces to my wardrobe. March is another busy month, with four family birthdays as well as Mother’s Day, and plenty of press events coming up. The wardrobe is going to be busy this month!
