Sorry I haven’t updated the post for a few days but I’ve had a few days away relaxing with my mum in sunny Gozo. For those of you who don’t know (I didn’t until I booked the trip!) Gozo is a small island off the coast of Malta. We stayed in the resort of Xlendi which in my opinion is the best resort on the island…it has a very chilled, italian feel to it with little bars and restaurants positioned through a natural harbour. We spent the days exploring the island then topping up our tan by the pool, then in the evenings we would get dressed up and potter down to the harbour for some delicious food and wine.
I managed to pack quite lightly – one 20kg case shared between my mum and I – and wore pretty much everything I took, which is pretty good for me! Here is what I wore every evening…
Dress – H & M
Sandals – Primark
Skirt, Top and Necklace all Newlook
Dress – H & M
Earings – River Island
Skirt – NewLook
Tee – Primark
Necklace – Primark
Shoes – NewLook
Bag – Primark
Skirt – NewLook
Top – Primark
Necklace – H & M
Overall I was pretty happy with all my outfits. I think day 4 was my favourite, the skirt I’m wearing was actually from the kids section in New Look!
What do you think, do you enjoy getting dressed up for an evening when you are away?
Last week I told you that I’d bought a amazing Zara PU Laser cut top in the sale, and was desperate to wear it. I had a baby shower on Saturday and thought it would be perfect for this, as it was smart yet not too dressy. I paired it with some topshop skinny jeans and a cute black necklace from Primark. Here are a few pics, let me know what you think?
As promised in my last post here are a few pics of my new floral jacket’s first outing. I styled it quite casually as I was at work all day then out to the cinema in the evening, I think the outfit still looks cute though?
Jacket – £15 – H & M
Jeans – £40 Mom @ Topshop
T-shirt – £4 – ‘The Boyfriend’ @ Primark
Neon necklace – £4 – Primark
Neon pumps – £5 – H & M
Yesterday my friend and I spent the afternoon shopping at the Trafford Centre. Nearly every store had a sale on and I had to control myself not to spend all my money in one go!
Here are the bits I bought, I didn’t make it to Topshop so I’m sure there will be another post on that soon enough!
Floral jacket – H & M – £30.00 reduced to £15.00
Black embellished sweatshirt – H & M – £19.99 reduced to £7
Floral quilted sweatshirt – Zara – £29.99 reduced to £19.99
Laser cut PU tee – Zara – £39.99 reduced to £29.99
I absolutely love the Zara PU tee and am already thinking of different ways to wear it. I also love the floral H & M jacket which is a really lightweight poly silk fabric – it can be dressed down with jeans or up with a nice dress. I’m wearing the jacket today so will try and get some pics on later if I can.
Have you raided the sales yet? If so please share your bargains with me!
