It's the middle of August here and although Summer seems like a distant memory already, I wanted to share one last brand with you that I've been wearing this Summer.  I think you're going to love them.

Ethical Fashion - 5 Tips to Update Your Wardrobe Using eBay

I have been on an eBay mission of late. This is me - I go through the motions with eBay. I'm all or nothing. On a roll or just can't be bothered. 

Lately though, it's go time. I've done some good post-baby clothes clearing out - anything that was feeling too frumpy, too worn out and clothes that I was actively avoiding got purged.

Years ago I would have been a pretty compulsive fast fashion hound.  When I lived in London during my Uni days, a quick nip into Oxford Street (haha, quick and Oxford Street... words that are impossible to marry) to the flagship Topshop or the ginormous H&M would have been totally predictable.  I bought clothes so unconsciously, so flippantly that when I look back at pictures of those days, I can't even remember buying the things I am wearing in the photos.  They went in and out of my wardrobe so quickly and without much thought.
