Popping into the YMCA charity shop always entails a frantic rifle through their delightful 50p sale rail which never fails to present me with one unignorable essential purchase. Today it was a nautical polyester vest with this killer print:
I am beyond obsessed with nautical and so this top is pretty much a visual representation of the configuration of my mind.
I also treated myself to some fabulous black chunky suedey wedges from New Look which only cost £18 after student discount had been deducted.
The day was completed with a visit to Florence Cafe for jacket potatoes with cheese and baked beans and a cream tea. And a pot of tea for two. My sister and I both agreed on how positive it felt to be supporting an independent business that champions homemade food and has a genuine passion for customer service as opposed to pouring money into generic chains such as Cafe Nero and Costa Coffee.
