Poppys and old friends

This post features my last new purchase (the mittens) before I started my Lent Clothing Fasting so I thought I’d share it with you guys.

It was a sunny but freezing day so I felt like bringing some colour and cheer and spring shades, but still keeping really warm! I love this cardigan as it always reminds me of my fab friend Courtney who sadly lives a million miles away in America, but let me save this from her charity shop pile. Thank you!!

    What a great idea for Lent! I’m just ending a spending freeze and next month is my birthday so I’m looking forward to going shopping again 🙂 Love the fur coat!
