Summer Jacket | Charity Shop Find





Firstly, I just want to say a massive thank you to everyone who reads this blog. I reached 100 followers on GFC yesterday and it means so much to me that so many (to me 100 seems like a lot) of you enjoy reading what I write on here. I've only been posting since April and never thought that I would end up chatting to so many of you so quickly. So, thank you so much! Since April, I've also really enjoyed coming across new blogs to read and can't wait to discover even more. 

I found this jacket in a charity shop recently and it reminded me that sometimes you can find absolute gems hidden away on the clothes rails. You can pick things up for such amazing prices too. This cream jacket cost me £7, which I think is a bargain for something that's such good quality and from Jaeger. OK, it might look a bit dated as it was probably originally purchased about ten years ago...but I guess that's what I like about it. What do you think? 

If you are stuck for things to do this weekend or the weather is a bit rubbish, then you could always have a search through your local charity shops and see what you can find. Even if you don't end up buying anything or don't want to spend money, you can have so much fun trying on some weird and wonderful things. You never know, you may even stumble upon that 'must have, bargain' item along the way. 

Have a lovely weekend everyone!
