What I Wore // Bargain Blouse!




Blouse - Matalan
Jeans - Zara
Belt - Topshop
Earrings - River Island
Ring - Topshop

I still can't believe this blouse cost £12. Its everything I've ever wanted in a cream blouse, compliments absolutely every item its paired with and is generally an easy to wear, staple piece. Matalan has really grown on me since taking part in the Style Project, there really are some decent hidden gems every once in a while. Primark has been awesome recently too, I got 6 items for £36 yesterday and am thrilled to say that one of those items is a kick ass maxi skirt - Something that I never ever though I'd be able to feel comfortable in! As a skint student, its satisfying to know that fashion isn't always unobtainable through lack of a hefty bank balance. (Though I will be forever lusting Mulberry).

I wore this outfit to the cinema and Pizza Express during the week, a very common occurrence of late! You can probably tell I'm addicted to these jeans, and the H&M flatforms I wore with them.
I've had my hair dyed a little lighter recently, if you can tell at all! There are some copper tones in there too to warm it up, and I love it - It was getting close to a year since I'd last had any colour through it, yikes. I've been toying with the idea of dying my hair brown but just cannot bring myself to do it! 

Have you picked up any bargains recently?
