We love to make the most of summer by steering clear of jeans and wearing skirts instead. This weekend Lucy chose a maxi, while I chose a midi and we think it’s great that we have both these options. On cloudy days like today it’s nice to have the choice not to show off too much leg, but still be able to keep cool when it’s warm outside.
A new Primark store has recently opened in our local city centre, so Lucy and I took a trip there on our day off on Friday and we were super impressed with what we saw. The shop had a huge selection of clothes, shoes and accessories for us to browse through, which was handy with summer well and truly underway, as it gave us a chance to update our sunny day wardrobes. We both spent between £65 and £80, which seems like a lot, but we got so much for our money that we won’t be needing to buy anything new for some time. They also had an extensive home section that we also purchased an item or two from. I’m sure over the next few weeks we will be taking the opportunity to show off some of our purchases in our Style Saturday feature, so if you’re curious to see how some of the items will look while wearing them, keep checking back.
Not everyone loves shopping. Of course I do, but a lot of people go for ease and convenience when purchasing new additions for their wardrobe, and that is why it’s brilliant that supermarket clothing has improved so much over recent years, as it means people can pick up gorgeous outfits while doing their weekly grocery shop. Tesco is one store that’s definitely upped their game in the fashion stakes and that’s why Lucy and I picked up a dress each when we visited recently, and wanted to show them off.
We all love a bargain, especially at this time of year when we’re revamping our wardrobes ready to go on holiday. That is why the summer sales couldn’t be better timed, giving you the chance to save some well earned money. I’m not one for traipsing around the shops, endlessly searching through sales racks, I’d much rather find my bargains from the comfort of my own home, and that is what I’ve done with the outfit below. These are the sort of gorgeous items you can find for yourself without getting up off your sofa.
