Outfit: Shoeper Challenge 2012 #11 and Dressing for Warm and Cold Weather





NOW Discount Red

After the fabulously warm and sunny weekend, the good weather looks set to continue most of this week. However, it was frosty this morning meaning some layering was required over my outfit which was planned for the warmer temperatures later on. I added my black jacket and black pashmina and was just about warm enough for scraping my car and driving to work. The sun is out so it should warm up nicely by dinnertime.


Today I need to buy some oat bran and chickpeas as I have a couple of WW-friendly dessert recipes I want to try out that should be practically points free on Filling and Healthy. I’ll let you know how I get on.


I also need to wash my car and do all that ironing of my summer clothes that I mentioned in my previous post. I have on one of the items that did get ironed yesterday, today. I got this skirt for all of about £2.99 in a charity shop a couple of months back. I am like a magpie for anything with stripes or spots in thrift shops so this jumped out immediately. It’s a size 10 so I wasn’t sure it would fit but for £2.99 I took a punt and it fits! I thought red and white stripes were more interesting than a plain white or black top.


The shoes are fairly old and came to me courtesy of NOW Discount Shoes. They are a fab colour though and fit really well. I’ve just had them re-heeled so intend to get plenty more wear out of them. They come in handy on days I follow my motto: if in doubt, wear red shoes.
