Bit random this one but last week as I was laid in bed one morning (it was half term so that's acceptable) I got to thinking that (excluding beauty products in my case of course!) we all have our weaknesses right? For some this may be shoes, handbags, jewellery, frocks, coats or just clothing in general ... for me it seems to be ...
Stripes ... we have a selection of long sleeves and three-quarter sleeves which I tend to wear a lot for work at the moment as our office isn't as cold as our house! Then there are short sleeve Ts and vests ready for Summer. I don't seem to venture into dress territory for some reason but there's something about a good stripey top I can't resist ...!
Greys ... oh dear ... ok so maybe not the full 50, but seriously there are so many shades of grey ... from the palest to the deepest charcoal ... I can't get enough of it and I find it so easy to wear! There are Tshirts, tops, sweatshirts, jumpers, thin cardigans, thick cardigans (the one on the right is from Matalan and is so thick and warm it's never off my back when I'm at home!), pencil skirts, a pair of jeans, this isn't even the full arsenal here! I really don't need any more grey items in my wardrobe but the other day out shopping with my friend I picked up a grey T from H&M - (top far right with the label still on!) because I had some Christmas money still to spend and because I don't already have that particular shade of grey ... that's what I told myself anyway ...
Mugs ... this lot is just a random selection a) couldn't fit them all in the pic b) some were in the dishwasher c) I probably have a couple of each pictured here. See for me (the husband thinks I'm weird - to him a mug is a mug) different drinks taste better in different cups and also for me size matters! In the morning I want a big one (mug of tea), in the afternoon a smaller one will do coffee/tea/hot chocolate (I never seem to have a big one in the afternoon). And there's something comforting about buying a new mug and giving it a good home but I have to curb my addiction as we'll run out of cupboard space! (You think I'm weird now don't you?)
So ... am I daft or what? In my defence none of these items are really expensive even but tell me I'm not the only one with a 'problem'! Make me feel better and tell me about your weakness(s)!
