I can't currently decide if it seems as though Spring is on the way or not, but decided to dress as though it was nonetheless. And then drove to work through a flurry of snow and realised I'd probably made the wrong decision. Such is life.

Whilst I'm still going with my spending ban, I've been finding plenty of different ways to add new things to my wardrobes and have taken part in a number of clothes swaps. Last week, Paige and I decided to swap a parcel of 5 unwanted wardrobe items so that we would each have something which was new to us to wear.

Two of the items Paige sent me were this cute white eyelash knit jumper, which I think it perfect for layering over dresses, and a lovely nautical print dress. I loved the idea of wearing them together, when I opened the parcel.

As soon as I saw the jumper, it reminded me of the cloud bag I received from my ASOS Secret Santa, and I added the tights I'd also been sent in that parcel. They are apparently winter white, but seem more of a mucky cream colour to me, when compared with the jumper.

Silver brogues and my silver mirror Tatty Devine carriage necklace were my final additions to the outfit.

Have you ever taken part in a clothes swap? I've been signing up to a few lately, as I love the idea of sending my unwanted items off to a loving new home. And, something new without breaking the spending ban is always a winner, in my book.

  1. I've always loved that TD necklace, such a statement. I've had my eye on that bag for a while but will resist as I have too many novelty clutches!

    1. Is there such a thing as too many novelty clutch bags?

    1. It's one of those which I think about getting rid of quite often, and then remember how much I like it when I wear it again.
