well, I know a thing about contrition, because i got enough to spare.. start off this post, last night i went to the bingo with a friend, for the first time, outfit shown here..the skirt is a few years old now, with random patterns of horses, stars and balloons, from h&m ( talking of which, i'm super excited at the fact that there is a shrewsbury store opening next month - i will never leave, it's definitely one of my fave stores!), which i have teamed with my new perfume bottle tee from river island, a vintage-esque scarf from accessorize, and a bright blue hair bow to go with my crayola blue nails and matching accessorize jewel ring..the greeny shrug is from new look, found again at the weekend as i forgot i owned it, and i added a matching teal beret for leaving the house as it was rainy..much bingo fun though, i won £5 so in all a cheap night out!!

today's outfit is rather seasonal for the halloweeny/bonfire nighty time of year that is upon us (i think)..i love this time of year for the chunky knitted cardis and accessories that are around, i keep getting drawn into accessorize to drool over mittens and scarves, and i am seriously coveting the panda beanie hat in river island (check the website - it's instantly recognisable!) - so much so that my mum has promised to get it for christmas for me..
anyway, today's skirt i'm particularly proud of, it's made from some vintage halloween fabric, in a really simple circle skirt pattern, but so perfect for this time of year..i've put it with a pair of plain black leggings and a black tshirt, so as not to detract too much from the halloweeny pattern, and then my chunky mustard cardigan from peacocks, a mustard bracelet from primark, and a long chain with an articulated russian doll enamel pendant from accessorize ( a gift from my mum last time we were shopping together)..i've also added the blue hair bow again as my nails are still yesterday's fabby blue (bought some nail polish at the weekend as it was on offer at boots and i needed cheering up)..have finished the outfit with my trusty blue pixie boots from office, which do seem to be getting a lot of wear now that the weather has turned colder..
the final pic is more of a reminder to myself, to sort out my necklaces and hairbands - some of which i keep in the wallhanger as pictured, all part of the great wardrobe tidy up!! i was pleased with this, saw it in a gift shop and thought it would be perfect for necklace storage - esp. the beaded ones that don't tangle so easily..
also to go on my mental to-do list, i need to make a start on halloween costumes..


  1. Cheerful and groovy as ever, Char! Good luck with the tidy-up. xxx
