What I Wore: Penneys Bargains

This is only the second time I have ever done a what I wore style post. I don't really blog about fashion but it is something that I would like to get more into as I feel it makes me make more of an effort with clothes! I basically play it safe a lot of the time. I have my work uniform, my pjs, and jeans and a cosy knit look. I always stick to one of these which means my style can be a little boring. I have lots of clothes as I love shopping but sometimes I just can't be bothered! This coming year, 2015, I have decided I wanted to break out of that box and mix it up a little bit. There are only so many times you can wear Free Runs, tracksuit bottoms and a hoody when you are NOT at the gym. 

I like to call this a casual yet put together look. I love the layers and the colour palette of grey, khaki and tartan which are all very season suitable. 

God, I make an awkward model. This photos were a rush job taken the mother on my fab new Nikon camera that I got for Christmas. 

I am wearing a grey turtleneck pullover that I picked up in Penneys for €10. It's so cosy and thick and feels like better quality for Penneys/Primark. The necklace is this stunning industrial style silver 'knot' necklace also from Penneys. This cost €6. 

My fur collared gilet is from, yes, you guessed it! Penneys! I love it, I think it looks like its from River Island. €25. 

My tartan skort ( shorts that look like a skirt) is from Primark in Manchester. I can't remember how much it was but it was around ten or twelve pounds I think. Black tights, black boots that I also picked up in Manchester in a random shop and a grey satchel style bag from New Look complete the look. The boots were reduced to £30 from £60 and the New Look handbag was reduced to £15 from £30. I love a bargain! 

Let me know what you think of these types of blog posts and if its a yay I will do more of them I promise! :) 

xoxo Keep on blogging it beautiful

  1. Love this look! I seen those gilets (or body warmers as I call them! lol) the other day but hadn't got my size. They are great quality for the price! x
