Hello and welcome to day one of a new month long blogging challenge that will hopefully see me post a different dress on the blog everyday during the month of May!
The reasoning behind this challenge is to make me dig deep in wardrobe and wear more of what I own. I am also embarking on a spending ban (essential items are still allowed to be purchased) as I need to save money and curb my spending habits.
There will be a mixture of old and new outfits on the blog over the next month as I have some dresses that were bought earlier in the year which haven't made it onto the blog yet.
I really hope that I can complete the challenge and fingers crossed for warmer weather as the month progresses which should allow me to start wearing some of my summer dresses.
Today's post is a bit of cheat as I also wanted to share my new coat with you all which I bought in the New Look sale last month before I imposed the spending ban. It was reduced from £32.99 to £16.99 and I desperately needed a new lighter weight coat to wear to work.
Husband and I went for a stroll through the park this morning so I took the opportunity to grab some photos.
My only gripe with this coat is the sleeves are rather big but the it means I can wear thicker tops underneath and still have room. I have worn it to work and for a blogger event and it has been really comfy (apart from the first day I wore it and got snowed on!!).
I do indeed have a dress on underneath which is my old faithful Simply Be denim smock dress which I must wear at least once a week!
Sadly this dress is now only on Crazy Clearance in very limited sizes but it may also be worth checking Ebay.
