Cheap and CHIC – workwear – OOTD

imageAs someone new to blogging I never realised how awkward posing for an OOTD would be, my poor housemate!!!

imageAs the title of this blog suggests I am all about finding fashion bargains and as someone who has only recently started ‘grown up’ work I find myself constantly torn between looking professional and showing some personality as well as not spending the entirety of my new found wages. Through this blog, I will document my attempts at finding work (and weekend) wear that is both chic and cheap. (And you never know I might get better at posing for pictures along the way!!!)

Adding a simple stripy tee to this plain black dress adds something a bit more fun and gives the whole look a cheeky (and chic-y) French twist.

T shirt £12.99 h&m

Dress £24.99 h&m

Primark boots are the perfect way to add height without hurting! And a navy Primark handbag with 3 compartments is also a practical addition to the outfit:

For jewellery further fun is added by an ASOS owl ring and a simple but bold new look necklace:
