A week or so ago Wilf got a sickness bug which lasted 24 hours then came back again two days later for another 24hours. I had a similar virus which didn't make me sick but made me feel SO tired and subsequently we couldn't leave the house for a couple of days. It wasn't the most fun.

We had been given a voucher by TKMaxx and challenged me to find an outfit for both Wilf and I from our local branch. Knowing it would be another week or so until we managed to make the trip I entrusted the voucher with Tom and waited to see what he would come up with.
TKMaxx used to be my first port of call after my student loan would come through when I was at uni and their Carmarthen branch was where pretty much where all my clothes were bought during those 3 years. I still remember the time I found those black 24 inch waist designer jeans reduced by about £200. Luckily being 18 and I lot thinner than I am now they fit me perfectly, I doubt they would reach over my knees now. It was that heart flutter when you realise you have found that hidden gem, that bargain that no one else will have. Much the same as vintage shopping in a way.
Tom is really pretty good at buying clothes for us so I wasn't too worried about what he would return with although I know it's often pot luck with what you find at the shop that particular day.
For me this beautiful french style jumper £24.99. I teamed it with a white shirt from Yumi, a red skirt from Zara and a bag from Nica. Tom and Wilf are both wearing check shirts from TKMaxx, £14.99 for Tom and £6 for Wilf.
Tom also picked up this amazing cowboy style rain coat for Wilf which came in at £15.99. He didn't have a chance to wear it until the weekend just gone, you can really feel Autumn in the air now can't you? He's been telling everyone about his new 'horsey coat' so it's definitely a winner.
We also picked up another shirt for Wilf which is a little too big for him to wear now but was too lovely to pass up, it's another flannel checked shirt in case your wondering. We seem to have becoming a bit country inspired recently! We actually still have a little left on our voucher as the grand total of our outfits were under £65. Pretty good haul hur?
