Outfit of the Day: Beach Look Bargain

In Outfit of the Day on June 27, 2010 at 8:01 pm

So I know I am not actually at a beach (soon will be :D) but I thought I’d take advantage of the unusually warm English heat. And when I call this outfit a bargain I do mean bargain!

To start off the sunglasses, they were just £2 from Primark and are perfect for wearing to the beach as you won’t have to worry about them getting damaged or anything. What I love about these is they have gorgeous side detailing that are perfect when your hair is scraped back into a ponytail. However it is unusually low placed on the frame so it looks silly if you place them on top of your head. However at £2 I really am not complaining!

The top cost just £2.99 from h&m and is an absolute bargain – you can team it with shorts; leggings, and over a bikini at the beach. I even wore mine tuckeed into a pencil skirt, making it totally office smart!

The shorts are last years and I got them from New Look for around £8 I think. They have similar ones this year too and are a great summer wardrobe basic!

And my final (bargain) piece de resistance are these gladiator sandals which are absolutely gorgeous and I got them from New Look for just £12. They also come in black and gold but for me this platinum colour was the most versatile and summmery for me and I think the colour that goes best with the style of shoe.

This outfit had no jewellery, quite often when  I am hot in would seem like a lot of faff. However I have worn it before with just a large statement ring (of the type that can be bought at Primark for a few quid or Topshop for more of a splurge item).

Thats all for now. Hopefully, this will be the first post of many!
