Budget Basics and OOTD!

I feel bad for not blogging for a few days but I just havn't had the chance! I usually get a few spare minutes at work but I just havn't had long enough probably catching up after all the bank holidays!

Here is a quick OOTD from yesterday. Its so chilly at work that I have to wear lots of layers so I decided to mix up the colours a little bit and I also wanted to wear my new mustard vest. You will notice the background is different as I actually took these at work when I was in the office by myself!

Grey Pocket Tshirt- Select £5
Mustard Rib Vest- Asda £3
Tan Belt- Dunnes £2
Charcoal Chinos- Select £10
Tan Mocassins- Clarks £17.99

You can see I like to wear plain things layered up and I think this means you can get lots of different looks from the same items. Mixing and matching colours. I also have this vest and t-shirt both in cobalt blue as well. The T-shirts are actually quite long so I knotted it up at the front to look a little different. I like items which are versatile and can be worn a few different ways.

My second outfit I couldn't resist showing as it was such a bargain. It cost me a total of £1.99 (well £3.99 if you include postage!)

Henry Holland Oversized Tshirt Ebay 99p
Leather Belt Charity Shop £1
River Island Skinny Jeans Free from a Swish!

The picture is rubbish and doesn't show any detail but I got the jeans from a clothes swap, they are River Island sort of dark blue distressed style with studs on the back pockets, they are super skinny though and it can be tricky getting in and out of them!

This tshirt arrived in the post this week from ebay (99p!) and I already love it as its so easy to wear. Henry Holland himself has even been spotted wearing it even though its from the womens collection. I think I look much better in it though! haha :)

That's all for tonight, I have lots of ideas for more exiting blog posts but maybe when I have more time to think about what I'm writing!
