Last week was a very miserable week as it was the last week of January. The last week of January means that I am poor. But the first week of February is good because I get some pennies. Just like the first week of March and the first week of April and so on and so forth. This week being the first week of February, I'm happy again.
The reason why I was particularly poor in my last week of January was because I'd spent the rest of the month putting my summer wardrobe together from the dregs of the sales. Okay - not exactly the dregs of the sales because I wouldn't say anything I'd bought could be described as dregs but nothing I bought was full price. From my boyfriend jeans which were already discounted in the Gap outlet and was then discounted a further 30%. To my Splendid tee which was half price in the NAP sale. And my Paul Smith Shirt bargain which was also from the York outlet. And my last purchase which is my Splendid floral shirt from the Outnet which would have been rude to refuse on the grounds that I was offered a £20 voucher off my first purchase. Told you - rude not to.
Despite the fact that we are only in the first week of February, I have high hopes for a lovely summer this year given the pitiful offering of sun we had last year. In the summer I get a bit girly. The sun goes to my head and makes me give in to my inner pretty. I go round singing "I feel pretty, I feel pretty, oh so pretty" whilst twirling daisies through my hair. Err ... scrap that last image. Okay, I get a bit girlier. It's okay - it's nothing to be ashamed of I tell myself but I still blush when people say you look nice and that's really pretty. I have a secret hankering to be edgy but I know that that isn't going to happen in my lifetime.
So this Splendid shirt. I've not told you much about this. What can I say apart from it's pretty and girly and has flowers on it. The colours are summery, with a pale green background and purpley navy pinky flowers on it. My inner pretty says that this is how I will be channelling my Splendid shirt. You couldn't look butch in this if you tried. You could be a heffer moose but you would be a very girly heffer moose wearing this shirt.

I already have 4 components of this outfit. I am missing the Mulberry bag but that isn't coming to my house any time soon unless the lottery comes in and that isn't going to happen if I don't play. But I'm sure I can find a bag in the bag cemetery under the bed which fits the bill.
And if I'm feeling really really girly, I'm going to get my legs out and switch to something like this :
Again, I have four components - just missing one. The bag! I appear to have a bag deficit! Heaven forbid! I must rectify this immediately ........ ;o)
So come on, who's sick of the winter wardrobe and been shopping ahead? I started on the 1st Jan :o)
