For a while, I was so good at not spending. I have a certain amount of money in my bank account that I don’t want to go under. There isn’t a particular reason for this, its just nice to have that reassurance that I have that money of I need it. However, after being so good with my money In the past couple of weeks I have cracked and gone on multiple shopping trips. But its no big deal, I managed to pick up 5 items for a grand total of $10.00, so I’m not really doing too badly?
Today in an attempt to avoid a art history essay I have to write I headed in to town with my mum and dad to do a quick bit of shopping, I ended up finding some really lovely sandals that you will see a post on tomorrow I think? They are sooooo amazing, if you want to see them there is a photo on my Instagram.
On Saturday I went opshopping with my mum, which was really cute. Normally she's not that in to shopping - she likes clothes but can't be bothered to go in to shops and find them. Which to me seems beyond weird. I pretty much live for clothes and shopping! Anyway, we had probably spent half an hour in this one opshop (that’s quite a while considering its size) and I hadn’t found a single thing – which for me is really weird? I was in this really weird part of the shop where everything was in boxes and suitcases when found this beautiful little bag, which was only $2.00. I am completely in love with every part of it – the shape, the colour and especially the tapestry fabric. It’s just so unique and pretty. This is my best find of the whole trip.
No, I didn’t put the same photo in twice. I got a second blue cardigan that’s practically the same as the other. Why? Because this one was free!! Usually I don’t bother looking through the bins of free clothes outside opshops, its normally just the crap stuff that no one would buy, but I proved that wrong because this is a really lovely cardigan. And it’s a slightly different shade of blue to the other one... kinda
And last, but not least I picked up this skirt for $2.00. I have tried and tried to wear midi skirts but I just can’t do it. I find them really unflattering (on me) as they cut me off right on the widest point of my shin, which makes my legs look nasty. I wish I could wear midi skirts – some people make them look sooooo good. I will also be doing a bit of a DIY on this skirt to make it a more flattering length.
Hope you’re all well and are enjoying your Easter break!
