Hand-Me-Down Haul

A little while ago my lovely sister kindly surprised me by turning up at my house with a massive bag full of clothes she'd decided she no longer wanted and was passing on to me. I figured I'd try something a bit new on the blog today and do a post showing you guys some of my favourite things in a 'hand-me-down' haul. I never do fashion posts because usually I have no fashion sense at all, so hopefully with my sisters' influence this will change!
I was very happy to find numerous cosy jumpers in this bag as autumn will finally begin this month and I am so ready for it. Jeans and a jumper are pretty all I ever wear, and I have been loving the oversized pale pink one because it's so comfortable. I usually pair it with some fitted monochrome trousers and pumps and I love it. I also really like the knitted blue jumper which I usually just pair with some high waisted jeans as it's slightly cropped and looks good with higher jeans.
There was also a fitted denim skirt in the bag which I'm curious to try out. I'm unsure of what to pair it with so if you have any suggestions let me know! The rest of the clothes included some other skirts and some comfy house clothes but the pieces I've mentioned are the ones I'll definitely get the most wear out of. Getting hand-me-down clothes is definitely one of the perks of being the younger sibling and I've told my sister if she ever fancies a clear out again I will gladly accept it!

What are your current wardrobe staples?

  4. Jumpers are just what to go for when it starts to get a bit chilly and I am really drawn to the fetching pieces that you now own - Those colours will brighten up any outfit.

    Like you are with your jeans is how I am with my leggings, pairing them mostly with dresses or a skirt and top, plus a cardigan. This is what I think your denim shirt would suit well with.
