I went on a bit of a second hand shopping adventure on Saturday. My favourite thing about op-shopping or searching for second hand pieces is the thrill of the hunt, finding the treasures amongst the trash. Of course this means sometimes you don’t find anything.  I was nearing the end of my adventure empty handed when I spotted this blouse and had to have it. I just love how colourful it is and I braved wearing it to work today to bring a little more colour today.

I am feeling restless at the moment, I am craving change, does anyone else get like that? Not quite sure what it is that needs to change or why I am feeling so muddled but I am sure I will put my finger on it at some point...maybe its just the anticipation of going away or the changing of seasons... whatever it is change is not necessary a bad thing so maybe I should try to embrace it and shake things up a little.

  1. I think its the changing seasons, I feel the same and that normally means that I end up doing something crazy with my hair haha.

    I love the spotty top on you :)

  7. That shirt is AMAZING! So cheerful & colorful and how serendipitous that it fits you so perfectly. :) I totally understand feeling restless . . . I feel that way all the time. I think your restlessness will settle as soon as you get on the plane to come to the U.S.! What an adventure you have ahead of you. :)

  13. Ooh, fabulous top! It seems like pieces with lots of colors are about as versatile as neutral ones since they can be "matched" with so many other pieces. I love when I find something very colorful like this in a thrift store. And I love polka dots!

  19. Love the blouse - fun and hopefully just enough to bring out some sun on a regular basis!

    I'm also feeling really restless - like I'm ready to jump out of my skin. It could very well be the weather... Is it really windy there? I find that when it's windy, my students go a bit nutty and I feel a bit out of sorts.

  25. LOVE that top! It's so fun!!

    I know what you mean about change. I'm craving something different too. The weather's warming up here, so the wardrobe change is helping (even if it makes me realise I've put on some weight since last Summer, eek!).

  26. Completely adore the spots - love how there are quite a lot around for the new Autumn/Winter collections over here at the moment too.
    Change, however scary, is never a bad thing in my book and may just have to agree with Rhianne about it being the season change which brings it out in us. Happy weekend lovely lady! xx
