En GallopApril 16, 2012
You can't tell from the photos but a bitter wind was blowing, raising goosebumps on my legs. It was worth it for those few minutes of sunshine, somewhat. I headed back inside soon after though, to eat homemade cheese on toast (yeah, I made my own cheese) and have a big glass of orange juice. The adorable fur ball above is George, my family adopted him at Christmas as a present for my brother, he just celebrated his first birthday! (He's also a wonderfully portable cat, more on that later though.) The last photo is Stephen showing off his newly thrifted shoes and wearing my strap on roller skates.
Wearing: hat found at home, sunglasses thrifted from Fara, Urban Outfitters watch, skirt thrifted from Caritas, and shirt and shoes are thrifted from CSP.
You see? George is a wonderfully portable cat. Just put down a bag and he jumps right in and makes himself comfortable. Carry him around and he doesn't object. (Not for a while at least.) Back to talking about clothes though, I love the print of this skirt that I found on Saturday. (We drove around to three charity shops all around town but I only managed to buy one thing, I was very picky.) The skirt has a wonderful rope and chain print that makes me think of horses and a day at the races, which in turn makes me think of the recent happenings at the Grand National, not a positive association, oh well. Once I get back to my main wardrobe I might put together a ways-to-wear-it post with this skirt because something with such a bold print can be difficult to style. Honest opinion time: would you be interested in "how to wear it" posts?
Last but not least, here are photos of all the things I've thrifted since coming home. Maybe I should have a thrifted Tuesday/Thursday post dedicated to the things I find or maybe I'll just tack them onto the end of ordinary posts. It's a wonderful feeling of showing off, oh internet friends, you're the only ones that care!
Vintage rope print skirt, vintage floral dress, fringed floral scarf, neon orange shorts, black chelsea boots and 60's style red sandals.
