We Wardrobe ladies might be busy working hard but we certainly don’t give up spending our cash too!
You’ve heard from the other girls spending sprees now here’s mine…
Certain trends come and go but there are those that ALWAYS come back and luckily for me two of my fave trends always make an appearance each year: Nautical and Military.
We’ve had our nautical summer fun and now it’s time to toughen up and get ready with the recurrence of the military trend. Even though it is still technically summer (come back sunshine!), high street shops have been filling their rails and shelves with Autumn/Winter stock, teasing us with those winter wools.
Even though I’m not quite ready to desert my t-shirts for knitwear- its summertime!- I’ve “given in” and bought some pieces which should help making that tranisition from SS10 to AW10. First stop, Primark!
This seasons military trend is more about the khaki/camel/and navy colours. Anything with brass/gold buttons is a must. My first item that I picked was this black military look tunic for £10.00
Primark Military Tunic in Black £10.00
I think this shirt is smart enough to wear for work and thin enough for the warm weather. Even though i’m tempted to wear it with my lace up work boots I think tan boots would compliment the black nicely.
My second purchase (which I bought a month back actually) was this khaki crochet jumper for £9.00. I bought it as it combined two summer trends in one…khaki and crochet. For winter I will wear a thicker top underneath and of course my lace up boots, yay!
Crochet- not just for doilies!
The next item is deffo my fave purchase of the day. When I saw this jacket…I fell in love. After telling myself I didn’t NEED it, I finally caved in after trying it on and seeing the price. For £15.00 it is a bargain as there was a similar jacket in River Island which was more expensive.
Fit! Primark cropped Military Jacket £15.00
I can’t wait to wear this with my stone coloured chinos. Here’s me modelling the ‘fit’, and although you can’t see (tired eyes), I do have a face!
With the A/W10 stuff coming in, there have been a lot of summer sales on in the high street. I don’t know about you but it depends on what kind of mood i’m in when it comes to sale shopping. If it’s too busy or if the shop/sales floor is a mess then I can’t be bothered. However, me and the Wardrobe girls were in a shopping mood when it came to the Next sale and we all managed to grab some right bargains.
It might not seem much but when I saw this t-shirt, I was so happy! I tried to order this in a few months ago but it wasn’t available to order. So it was a complete surprise to see it in the sale and in my size.
£8.00? Yes Please!
I just love the rose print and of course getting it at £8.00 is much better than paying full price for it, hehe!
Another thing I got at the Next sale were these shoes. I admit they were bought purely because of the price and the fact they look amazing. I’m a fan of tassles/fringing which is what caught my eye in the first place. From £40.00 to £15.00 I think I nabbed myself a proper bargain It’s time I started to walk in heels…never mind run in them!
Honey Tassled Suede Heels @ Next was £40.00
Even though I managed to get a few more items (ssh) we’ll leave it at that before I get all guilty at how much I have spent/bought!
Did you pick up anything in the Summer Sales? What do you think of the new A/W10 trends?
