3 for the price of 1.....

I'm attempting to get back into more regular posting, I've been fairly uninspired with my clothes (and myself) lately, but since I've returned from holiday (with white hair and a dayglo tan), I'm feeling a bit more like my old self and ready to start putting myself back out there.

I've spent so much money on clothes over the past few months, so I need to try to stop buying new clothes, but it's so very hard to stick to.....

Here's a few outfits that I've worn since I came back to work. Nothing ground breaking but they all felt good.

My work uniform is pretty much always jeans of some description plus top. I'm going to start digging out some of my massive dress collection to attempt to mix it up a bit.

This is my other purchase from the Cut for Evans range (now reduced!). I originally bought the trousers in this print too, but I should have sized up as they were a bit too much like leggings for me. I'll maybe still buy them in a bigger size at some point (once I'm allowed to spend, but they are in the sale.... so maybe?) This is the size 24 which fits over my chest pretty well, no gaping which is usually a massive problem for me with shirts. I wish it was a bit longer, but I'm almost 5'9" so most things are short on me anyway.

Ripped Janes (26) - New Look via ASOS
Studded pumps - Steve Madden (old)

This 2nd outfit is pretty simple, but look at those shoes... the shoe of my dreams! I seem to have an obsession with the ASOS swing vests at the moment and this is a slight variation on that theme. I want it in more colours please. These jeans are also my current favourites, they are really skinny around the ankles, have enough stretch but don't go baggy and they sit quite comfortably on my waist. I've now got 3 pairs and they are currently reduced... is 4 pairs a step too far??

Skinny Jeans (26) - ASOS Curve
Navy Cardigan (22) - Tu at Sainsbury's (old)
Amazing shoes - French Sole

Any finally... I bought this Kimono to take on holiday but didn't really need it. It's a nice change from my usual black cardigans so I expect this will get a lot of wear over the summer. I stupidly ordered this in a size too small but didn't realise and it barely fits around my big butt, but I'm ok with that :)

Right, I'm off to torture myself over the things I want but shouldn't be buying..... 


  1. I'm totally feeling the same lately. Bonus though- you look SUPER rocking in your Cut for Evans blouse! xx
