So we are now at the end of January…how did that happen?!? There isn’t that much to be cheerful about in January but I find a trip to the sales is always able to fix those post Christmas/New Year blues. So sale shopping throughout the month is a must for me! Heres my 10 favourite sale purchases I made…
1) H&M LOGG jumper £15 (from £29.99)
This pale grey jumper is so soft and fluffy I couldn’t resist. The high turtle neck is easier to wear than a roll neck and it is oversized so hangs beautifully (I’m a size 10/12 and went for the small). I’ve worn this loads already with both skinny jeans and wet look leggings. 2) H&M fine knit jumper £5 (from £19.99)
A super cute fitted jumper with a slogan I’m going to use as a mantra in 2016! A total bargain too.
3) H&M long cardigan £7 (from £24.99)
I love the colour plum in the colder months and liked the long line of this cardigan. At 70% off it would of been rude not to buy it… 4) New Look jewellery / necklaces £2 each (from £5.99), earrings £1 (from £5.99)
I can’t resist bargain priced accessories and these 2 necklaces look much more expensive than they were. The tasselled necklace has a real vintage feel to it and is very unusual and is definitely different to anything I own already. 5) New Look shirt bib £3.50 (from £8.99)
I got the white formal shirt version of this as part of a Christmas present so when I saw this checked flannel version reduced I grabbed it. Its such a clever idea and is great to place under more fitted items such as dresses and tops to create the illusion of a shirt underneath, without the bulk.
6) Primark blanket coat £10 (from £23)
OK, this coat is an acquired taste but in the grey, black and winter white colourway with a faux leather trim, it looks great. It came with a belt (which I removed) as I am going to wear it as a more laid back waterfall style coat or use a large kilt pin to fasten it. Its suprisingly cosy for a car coat (as its not lined) too.7) Claires Accessories floral crown, diamante headband, pearl and stud necklace and lurex braces – all £1 each (from £10 – £5)
Because you can never have to many acccessories….8) ASOS patchwork dungaree dress £22.50 (from £38)
I have been on the look out for a dungaree dress since the Autumn and tried loads on but couldnt find one I liked. This one with the different colored denim sections is cute without looking too young and where I didnt like the raw hem (really ASOS?) and just hemmed it to make it look neater.
9) Monki via ASOS sunglasses £3.75 (from £15)
Is it too early to buy sunglasses? I say no! I loved the cats eye shape of these combined with the gold metal frame. 10) River Island suedette bib £9 (from £15) and bow collar £4 (from £8)
Yes, it’s another shirt bib! I really think theyre fabulous. I also liked this cute bow which fastens like a choker and will be a great substitute for my normal statement necklaces.
So what bargains have you been treating yourself to? I’d love to know…
