Shopping in charity shops has been one my favourite things ever since I can remember. There is something about browsing through a load of old unwanted clothes and finding a hidden gem for a fraction of the price you would pay on the high street. I love being able to wear something you know no one else has as it's not been hanging in front of Topshop for the last week, as well as the important fact that your money is going to a good cause. Don't get me wrong I love shopping on the high street and there is a lot of things you wouldn't be able to find in a charity shop but I still love having a browse and finding something new. Sometimes you can go in and find absolutely nothing but it is definitely something you have to be persistent with to find the great pieces.
This shirt is a favourite in my wardrobe after coming across it in a local charity shop, I think it's a really versatile piece. I have styled it for colder weather here as this english weather is far too unpredictable at the moment, but it would also be perfect for summer tied round the waist with a little pair of denim shorts or as an over shirt over something quite plain.
My accomodation for summer is right next door to a Sue Ryder store so I am in charity shop heaven having a peek whenever a walk past for any new bargains! So I'm sure there will be more up from the charity shops soon...
