There goes Summer, wearing thrifted Topshop

The weekend was an absolute scorcher and for October it was such a treat to go out not only in bare legs, but with shorts and no jacket required! We headed for the park for a lazy Saturday afternoon.

My outfit of choice was some 7 For All Mankind cut off jean shorts which are thrifted and are years old, a pair of pink Havaiana flip flops and my newly thrifted Topshop 70s style floral kimono satin bias cut blouse, which with its wide sleeves, was a cool and boho chic style choice.

It was from the same seller as my picture skirt at the boot sale last week for just 50p-I couldn't not buy it and its already a favourite of mine as it can be worn casually or dressed up!!




It ticks a lot of style boxes for me-floral, 70s style, kimono with a bias cut-thats a lot for 50 pence worth!! For me its a true last minute summer bargain!


Back to reality now, the sun is out today but the temperature has dipped-back to jackets and October dressing! What will you look forward to wearing as the weather gets back to Autumnal temperatures?

Lovely top! I only buy Topshop second hand ;)

As always, I'm much happier in Autumn/Winter than in Summer so I'm excited about digging out my suedes, velvets, satins and crepes. Yum!

That top is gorgeous, I'd have snapped that up, too.
Your legs are fabulous in those shorts, wow!!
It's very chilly today, I've dug my tights out. x

Oh, you look great and barefoot too! You'd think it was summer and not the start of fall. BTW, I loved the skirt you featured in your last post - stunning!

Have a good day, Bonnie

The best things are second hand bargains, in my opinion.

I get perplexed when people complain about high-street in bootsales and charity shops; provided it's priced right (can't get more right than 50p!!) it's a fantastic source of bargains alongside vintage and designer items.

Girl, you look like a million dollars ... which is even more when you convert it to pounds, lol! I looove the top; very bohemian but feminine. Cute shorts too. You look just like a classic California girl! ^_^

LOVE your summer look - your adorable top should be on trend for SS12, not that it matters, just a gorgeous addition to any wardrobe.

I'm looking forward to wearing my coats (I have a little collection) and boots.
