Just a quick post with a update on mission coat.
As I said.... Dog with a bone!
So today I dragged my poor boy on his day off school to a mission of Hertfordshire. A brief mooch in the Harpenden charity shops come up trumps with brand new wetsuits for our impending holiday in Cornwall but alas no oversize coats with the look I was after.
Roll on to St. Albans and the Keech charity shop came up trumps.
The reasons for choosing to search charity shops were
2) as close to 100% wool as I can
So why when I find two coats that I liked couldn't I decide which to buy!? The old me would have brought both as after all at £9.50 each (yes really!) they were super cheap. The new me is super budget conscience and despite the approaching and never ending "beast of the beast" freeze heading back this weekend I don't ^need^ two coats in one day!
It's all about being sensible girls.....
It boiled down to single vs double breasted buttons and the fact my hair matched the burgundy best! I liked the fact that its going to stand out more than greys and that it was going to match the line in my converse. I know.... I know....
Oh I almost forgot I also bagged myself a lovely Precis blouse for £3.50! I'm considering another customisation on this but I will do a outfit blog on it over the weekend!
The pictures below are literally the ones I bombarded my sister with for opinions, something I will often do when shopping alone! Any UGG haters hold fire on comments, today was cold!
Anyone spot the 3 year old entertaining himself with hats!
Mission coat accomplished I took the cheeky monkey to the Bakehouse for his favourite lunch of macaroni cheese. Anyone local to St. Albans simply have to check this place out! It's great for a catch up with friends. Mornings are definitely mums and babies or toddlers as they have a space out for toys, afternoon more laid back and they even do wine and cheese evenings!
So anyway only a quick one.... Outfit posts to follow!
