fashion charity shops

what i wore – grey dress & mustard tights

dress – charity shop / necklace (similar) and tights (similar) – peacocks

woohoo it’s time for my favourite mustard coloured tights to come out! admittedly i have worn tights on and off during the summer, but these are a little thicker. and they look blummin’ good with my pink coat too ..not time for that yet though. everybody knows it’s the time of the year where the weather isn’t quite summery anymore, but isn’t yet autumn. in the time i took these photos, edited, uploaded etc’s both been super sunny, and dark/pouring with rain. anyway, enough about the weather.

…and onto this dress! i’ve been looking for a good quality, thick but not wooly, grey (similar to my tinny dress, but sleeveless) dress for quite some time. and you guessed it, i got it from a charity shop. i don’t know where it’s originally from as the labels have been cut out but it’s nice and roomy and in perfect condition.

i thought it’d be versatile, as it looks semi smart and could easily be dressed up, yet at the same time it’s very easy to wear and is perfect (for me) for an everyday dress. a good all rounder!

    I have v.similar tights to those. I sometimes feel like a rooster in them. [Which isn’t strictly a bad thing in and of itself … ;-) ] I also wear them with grey – perfect combination!

    I’m on a hunt for new-to-me-bloggers this month and am setting myself a challenge to leave 300 blog comments. So it’s fun to find something I can leave a genuine comment on! [Although, in hindsight, you might have preferred me sharing something other than my rooster legs ponderings.]

    I love mustard tights! I don’t think I’ve ever owned a pair though so maybe this year will be THE year. I have tonnes of burgundy tights though lol.
    Your necklace is gorgeous and so happy I came across your blog today x
