Charity Shops in Scotland

As you can imagine, we visited a few charity shops on our trip to Scotland and I bought a few items! It is great exploring completely new charity shops not knowing what to expect. There is always a wide variety in quality of goods and prices which is part of the whole experience. It is always very wise to carefully examine each item before you buy it as some shops do not check as thoroughly as others and I have found clothes on sale with missing buttons, stains and tears etc.

My first purchase was this turquoise skirt. Regular readers of my blog will know that turquoise is one of my favourite colours. This skirt is shorter that I would have liked but it only cost £2.50. May be it would be better worn over leggings and I will give that look a go at some point.
My second purchase was this lavender top. It is nice and snug and as I do not have many tops in this colour it is something different for me. It cost £3.50 and was new. It has a George label still attached.
It seems to tone well with my black trousers.

My daughter, Hannah, was experimenting with some new photography equipment when she took these photos and we decided to take some shots from an unusual angle - just to be different. A few years ago I would never have posted a photo of my bottom in trousers on my blog but I have become less self conscious in trousers now and do not necessarily wear tunics or long tops each time I wear them in public.

Have a good week!
