Fashion | 3 Bargain Items To Add To Your Summer Wardrobe


So as typical of British weather, we seem to have gone from the chilly rainy days and jumped straight into summer sunshine in a matter of a few short weeks! I'm always very happy to see the sun (and hope that my ghost like skin picks up a bit of colour!) but if you're anything like me you might not have fully transitioned your wardrobe into summer yet either.

To give you some ideas for your own summer wardrobe I thought I'd share with you 3 lovely bargain items that I recently picked up and how I styled them into a sunshine ready look. Hope you enjoy!  


Going boho, 3 summer styles that won't break the bank

For me summer style means getting to wear pretty flowy maxi dresses and lots of boho prints, whilst making sure the clothes are light and comfortable. The 3 pieces I have to share with you today cover all those things, as well as being very purse friendly!


Look 1: The Boohoo Paisley Maxi Skirt - £15








Paisley Maxi Skirt - £15 Boohoo / White Top - £6 Primark / Black Satchel Bag - New Look / Layered Necklace - £7.99 New Look / Heeled Black Sandals - £10 Primark / Sunnies - Topshop

I decided to go monochrome when styling this look, as there's just something so chic about black and white. I kept the top simple as there is so much adorable detail on the skirt, and I accessorised with a layered gold and black necklace to bring the look together. The heeled Primark sandals are another bargain pick I recently picked up (and probably need to stop wearing to death!) but they're just so comfy and not too high making them perfect for summer strolling. :)


Look 2: New Look Floral Tropical Print Maxi Dress - £19.99








Tropical Print Maxi Dress - New Look £19.99 / Khaki Textured Heels - New Look £19.99 / Black Satchel Bag - New Look / Gold Tribal Necklace - £7.99 New Look / Brown Suede Jacket - Mango

When I recently took this dress out for a spin I seemed to get inundated with "ooo someones ready for summer" comments - so it's definitely a bold and bright summer winner! I kept with the green colour theme and styled it with a pretty pair of Khaki green heels. I wear heels everyday anyway (ok apart from the gym!) but I would say if you're short like me (5'3) then you probably couldn't get away with wearing this dress with flats as it is quite long and you would proably have an epic walking fail and land on your bum. :o 


Look 3: New Look Red Rile Print Tube Skirt - £9.99











Red Tile Print Tube Skirt- New Look £9.99 / Black Crotchet Crop Top - Asos / Gold Tribal Necklace - New Look £7.99 / Suede Black Fringe Bag - £35 Miss Selfridge / Custom Classics Sun Glasses* - Sungod £56 / White Aztec Print Kimono - New Look £27.99 


And last but not least is this pretty bright red tile print skirt from (once again!) New Look. I went majorly boho style on this look and teamed it with a crotchet detail black crop top, a tribal print necklace, a white Aztec print kimono and the standard summer fringe bag! I think this look would actually be pretty perfect for a festival - minus the fact I'd probably get my wellies stuck in the mud (again!) and end up turning the kimono a muddy shade!

The glasses I'm sporting were kindly sent to me for review by the lovely people at Sungod. It was actually pretty cool choosing them on the site as you can customise each part of the shades with a selection of colours, and the lenses are even polarised! They're defintely worth taking a look at if you feel like investing in a decent pair of sunnies :) Check out their site here

Ok that's all from me today guys, thanks so much for reading and I will be back much sooner than I was this time!

See you soon,
