Day 30: Happy 30th

              • Red woollen jacket: East
              • Black lst: Matalan
              • Grey trousers: New Look
              • Black boots: Clarks

So today I am joining in with blazer day over at Everybody Everywear which meant I had to plan ahead for this and include a blazer/jacket in my 30 for 30 items. I wasn't convinced I would have a need for a blazer this month and wondered if it was a waste of one of my precious 30 items, but I am sure I can find ways to remix it in again. This is also the first day I have worn these trousers since I bought them before Christmas. As they are shorter with a slightly tapered style I wasn't sure what shoes would work with them but I think they will go with a number of different styles. The photo doesn't quite do them justice.

This is also Day 30 of my blog and I am very pleased to have made it this far. Only 335 days until I can shop again. I am not missing shopping as much as I thought I would but this is partly because I have not been around so much at lunchtimes when I tend to do most of my shopping. I have also been making a concious effort to avoid the shops at other times and I have replaced clothes shopping with shopping for the house. That has certainly kept me distracted but I fear may have a more devastating impact on the old finances!


  1. Happy 30 to you! I'm so pleased that you used that last space for our blazer challenge. It's a great color and I have no doubt that you will be able to find fun ways to remix it!

  2. No shopping for a year? Wow! Thats a commitment!

  3. Thanks Katie

    So far it's not been too hard but there are some sales in the shops and I am feeling a bit jumpy and I think the season's changing will be tough. Hopefully I'll be embracing all the forgotten goodies in my wardrobe by then.

    I was excited to join in as just missed out on the breton stripes, although was inspired to do my own a few days later. I am sure I will work the jacket in again.
    I am loving the Everybody, Everywear community, it is a great idea and fantastic having a theme and all the photographs laid out in one place which are easy to view.
    Looking forward to the next one.

  5. Ah your on a shopping ban too! How is it going? I am fine at the moment, luckily I had been sent clothing a few weeks ago, and I have won a few items, so it doesn't feel like I have gone without shopping.
