After a long-ish summer hiatus which nearly seemed like it could have been a permanent one, I have redesigned my header and looked into how I want to project my blog from now on.
I've come to the conclusion that I would like to stick to what I do best and what I enjoy-which is to carry on thrifting pieces from sources that I am currently inspired by-be it my favourite magazines du jour, ie-Red, Vogue, Grazia and Look and also of course by fellow fashion blogger and tweeters. Then of course the natural progression to this is to blog about my latest find and share my thrift inspirations with you all!
I have been struggling this last year with what I wanted to blog about and I have also questioned whether I wanted to carry on too. I can't actually blame anything in particular- I think a combination of an unpredictable summer, 'bloggers block', enjoying not being online for long periods of time all contributed to a lethargic apathy towards creating any blog posts, although I have been thrifting every now and then.
So as we approach Autumn, I am hoping motivation and passion for thrifting and blogging will marry together to produce some inspiration worthy blog posts.
Whilst on our summer break in August, a relaxing afternoon meant a choice of some magazines and I picked out Red magazine- I know its a favourite for a lot of fashion bloggers already, but I was suitably impressed to make this a monthly must have from now on. This months issue had inspiration aplenty and one of the main trends I've picked up on is a neon knit for the coming season:
Yes, if you do buy only one thing this month........... a neon knit is certainly a fun and stylish way to add a trendy pop of colour to your wardrobe.
So yesterday I was pleased to spot this sleeveless waffle cotton knit by Lands End in my local British Heart Foundation charity shop. Being indecisive meant even after trying it on I put it back on the rail only to decide last night I should have got it. Thankfully after work today it was still there today and I quickly snapped it up.
It will be great to wear right now in the gorgeous Indian summer we are currently experiencing in the South East of England but will look great over a white shirt layered in the colder weather.
New season trends from the catwalk that are inspiring me are purple and berry tones, black leather and winter florals-all so stylish with fashion longevity and certainly inspiration enough for future thrifting trips.
I look forward to catching up with you all and I really look forward to you dropping by-please let me know what styles and trends are inspiring you for this Autumn and Winter.
Have a fabulous weekend, whatever you get up to and heres hoping for sun, sun and more sun!!
