Hopefully we’ve all been paid for the month of February but that still doesn’t mean that we have to splurge our wages. I am trying to be frugal this month (and well this year) so I decided to set myself some style challenges one of which is to try and create outfits which cost less than €50, and that needs to include shoes and accessories. As part of my sponsored posts with Penneys, I get to test this out and no better brand to do this with. Firstly, I wanted to choose a look that is timeless and will do for any occasion, so that led me to the decision that the outfit needs to have jeans. I went for some charcoal coloured jeans this time round which are a good transitional colour. So, naturally this look is all about separates. Sometimes when maximising your budget we tend to go for dresses, but that doesn’t need to be the case. Think of how often you wear jeans? Lots right? So these are a better buy. For the top I spotted this gorgeous monochrome polka dot style with a little ruffle too to play on that trend which is everywhere this season. But, the shoes are a real talking point. Remind of you of anything? Well talk about a designer inspired outfit? These studded heels are remarkably comfortable considering their height. And honestly, I am avoiding heels right now as it’s all about the midi and kitten. But these ones are handy for going out. And they are only €19 so you can try out the designer look without having to spend a fortune.
Since I have your attention, this is a good time to share some news! Over the last few months I have been developing an app to help you keep to date with all my style adventures. So, I’ve launched it! Right now it’s available on Google Play for Android users and I will be launching the iOS version in the next few weeks. I found that most of my readers were looking at my blog and social media on mobile devices so why not come up with an app where you can get all of this in the one place. Not only can you read my latest blog posts (you can also sign up for notifications!) you can also switch between my Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and You Tube pages all from the same page. It’s free to download and please do tell me what you think and once I get the seal of approval from Apple I can let all you iphone users know too!
You can download the app by clicking this link here to Google Play!
