Ello! hope ye all good! Today i’m welcoming back the knit! because no matter how much a lot of us don’t like the cold, you would be lying if you said you don’t miss that cosy jumper stuck in the back of your wardrobe!
On the day of this shoot the weather was still pretty warm so I opted for a knit dress to stay on the cooler side. However, on chillier days I would pair it with some boots and a long mac coat. The dress is originally from Daisy Street but I actually found it in a charity shop.. new with tags.. for £2.99!! Bloody bargain eh!

I kept it simple and paired it with some white sneaks, tote bag and corduroy cap (which literally everything sticks to) for some sporty vibezzzzz. Then I threw in a suede choker so it didn’t lose it’s feminine touch.
HOW I ONLY SPENT £25 ON MY OUTFIT
Ello ello ello! Hope y’all good. I just want to mention that I’ll be getting my domain name in the next couple of weeks, yay! (something that I should have done a while ago) but I wanted to see if the blogging life was for me before I put any money into anything. Someone actually stole my blog name which is really really really really annoying 😦 so that means my blog name will be changing but only slightly.

Today I’m talking about budget outfits. I don’t like spending too much money when it comes to buying clothes and for those who have had me on Instagram for a while know i’m a sucker for charity shops. Don’t get me wrong there are some absolute gems out in the big wide world that you get what you pay for and it will last you forever but personally I don’t want to spend a lot of money on something that i’m only going to wear a couple of times and then probably sell it on my Depop. Plus why would you when there are some amazing vintage and charity shops were you can shop bargains for very little money AND the money goes to a good cause.
The sunglasses, earings, bag and sandals are all from Primark and are all really good bargains! The sunnies just £3 and the earings only £1! A lot of Primark earings can look cheap, tacky and turn your ears green! why do they do that!? but I think these ones look and feel pretty decent. The bag, which I have already featured in an older post, is just the cutest little thing and as I have mentioned before I feel like Suzy Bishop from Moonrise Kingdom every time I wear it! By the way that’s a class film and you deffo should watch it! The sandals are such a basic sandal. Nothing to say about them really apart from they are super comfy and go with literally anything. They are still going strong after almost 3 years of having them! Go on Primark!
The top is a Whistles top which I found in a little charity shop in Stockport. We all know Whistles is a little pricey so when I saw this baby for just £4 I had to get it. Its a really lovely yellow colour, with polka dots, frills and pussy bow! whats not to like! The shorts are also a charity shop find (£2) that were originally a pair of jeans which I cut into cropped jeans and then cut into shorts! so I’ve definitely had a lot of life outta them!
What are your opinions on thrift shopping and spending little money on clothes?
See you on the next,
