I'll be honest - I'm struggling with #frugalfebruary. I've had two occasions over the past week where I've sat with a shopping basket and forced myself to close the page and not complete the order. Torture - I blame the rubbish weather. But it's still in place with 12 days to go...we can do this!
Valentine's Day was a nice distraction as Mr SGS bought me roses, chocolate and bubbles..
We then went on our traditional Valentine's lunch date...and in honour of #frugalfebruary, I wore the same outfit I wore last Valentine's Day!
Though, I had to wrap up a bit more than last year, given the awful day..
and I ended up getting completely changed for the school run as we got soaked running to the pub...so it was Sorel boots and a waterproof coat (again) a few hours after these photos were taken!
Oh and I had a night out also at my neighbour's house so I gave this cream top from Mango a turn. I got it back in January in the John Lewis sale. It's got a voile front (which needs a vest) and a sparkly mohair knitted back so it's quite nice for this time of year.
Here's a close up of the back of the top. I can't find it online anymore in this colour way but it's available in grey on this link. I bought a size M which is about a 12.
I wore it with my Gap Boyfriend jeans, Zara wedge boots, coat as above, M&S necklace - all old - and the Boden bargain cross body bag (the one I posted about on Facebook - if you're not following, you're missing out!). Reduced to £20 on the 31st January - the perfect pre-#frugalfebruary treat. Snapped up in a matter of hours and out of stock now. I hope some of you were lucky enough to get one...it's such a lovely bag.
I can also now tell you about what I was up to on Saturday with the choir - we did a flashmob! We all sauntered into a Tourism Expo that was being held at the Titanic Exhibition Centre and started singing! The reaction was amazing. It ended with a couple of songs on the Titanic staircase - what an opportunity. I'll share some images when I can.
Enjoy what's left of the weekend and if your kids are on half term break this coming week too - good luck!
