I’m running behind with all things blog and social media related this week…a whole day late with the link up! Yesterday I just ran out of steam and had to park it. I think all the gardening I did on Monday and Tuesday caught up with me! (BTW, these garden waste bags are brilliant for when the green bill is full – we filled them several times over).
Anyway, this slouchy floral print suit is what I wore to work on Sunday. I’ve worn these trousers on the blog twice before – first in August 2021 and again in February last year. I bought the matching jacket shortly after the trousers but this is the first time I’ve worn them together here. I do wear the suit frequently for work, as I do all my other Monki suits in this style. (You can see them here, here, here and here). The loose, unstructured fit isn’t really the most figure flattering style, but it is very comfortable. It’s also really useful to have a collection of trouser suits that I can put on with a pair of trainers and a T-shirt and still look like I’ve made an effort!
I haven’t purchased much new recently but I have bought a few things on Vinted – one of which I’m wearing for Monday’s Thrifty Six post. I love browsing on Vinted – much more than eBay now. I’ve sold a few things on the app and Isobel has started buying and selling too. My charity shop visits have been fruitless lately, there seems to be more and more cheap fast fashion from the likes of Boohoo on the rails. I see lots of TikToks where people go into charity shops and find some fabulous pieces…I’m obviously looking in the wrong places because I can’t find any!
