Six Summer Outfits From Charity Shops

charity shop summer outfits

 Recently I have had a bit of a charity shop shopping spree. Not just because it’s super cheap but also because I enjoy it. It’s so difficult to find anything decent in a charity shop that when you do, you feel an amazing sense of achievement. You get an extra special boost when you realise the item you have found was originally from a really expensive shop. #winning.

There is a lot of stigma around shopping in charity shops. I do feel like some people might be judging me as I excitedly step inside a charity shop. Well, to be honest, I don’t really care. I have been searching online for an eco friendly clothing brand and haven’t found ‘the one’ yet. In fact, I am surprised more eco clothing shops haven’t popped up online.

It’s not that I don’t love the occasional high street outfit from Topshop or New Look. I just like the idea that some of my clothes are recycled, they have been reborn and are serving another purpose instead of going to waste. Also, some of the money that I have paid has gone to charity. I tend to choose charity shops where I feel an empathy towards their cause.

To be fair, lately I have been extremely successful on my charity shopping sprees. It’s for this reason that I am writing this blog post. I am so pleased with my super cute summer outfits that I want to share them with the world. Here is some evidence that you can find some fab outfits in charity shops. So next time you consider a bit of retail therapy, don’t turn your nose up at the charity shops. You might just find a hidden gem.

1. Daisy blue high wasted shorts

Originally from River Island.

2. Purple summer dress

Originally from H & M.

 3. White and pale pink flower print shorts

Not sure where these are from.

 4. Pink and purple mid length summer dress

Originally from Primark.

 5. Blue and white shorts playsuit

Originally from Primark.

 6. Denim look playsuit

Originally from Miss Selfridge (has a pretty white lacy back). Perhaps my favourite of them all.

 So there you have it, that’s pretty much most of the outfits I intend to pack for my summer holiday. In total they cost me about £30 max. I can jet off on holiday guilt free, and spend more on yummy food. Yay.
