Happy Smugpug sunday everyone! What a lovely day its been. You will see above that we made the most of the sunshine and I was happy to have the chance to show off my DIY dress that I made yesterday! Me and my friend Amy went into some local charity shops again (I just can't stop) which is where I got the material for this dress! I love the pastel colours and think its perfect for this time of year. It really felt like a summers day today.

Another item I fancy being all smug about are the boots. I was seriously overwhelmed when I found these! I got them for £4 and they were brand new as there was a wee sticker inside to show they were bought for £59! They are a green suede and practically my favorite colour right now (can you tell from the coat?) They were a size 5 and a half though so my tootsies were rather squished. Although to be honest, I didn't care!

Some of you would have seen me show pictures of my buys yesterday on instagram (follow me @kwigg) and I'd also like to take this opportunity to remind you that I am running a giveaway to win a skirt from Lavish Alice (previous post). This was due to end tomorrow but I have decided to leave it until next weekend.


  1. Lovely outfit. And you've got some amazing charity shop bargains!
