Even though I have a lot of clothes, I don't have much from the high end of the high street. A few Hobbs pieces aside, the majority of my clothes are from places like H&M or Tesco (I have absolutely no issue with picking up my clothes in supermarkets!) I don't tend to venture to the 'expensive shops'- even Topshop or Miss Selfridge are too expensive when it isn't sale time but I have been trying to add a few more hard wearing pieces to my wardrobe, Primark just doesn't cut it for me any more. I completely blame Gem and Sarah for my recent foray into the Jaeger sale, they are very good enablers and very bad for my willpower! ;) Strangely enough, this outfit manages to combine Tesco, Hobbs, Primark and Jaeger in one. Not bad really, especially considering I didn't pay full price for any of them...

I really love the print on this top and whenever I wear it, I get loads of compliments, from both men and women, something that it is pretty rare - usually women will like something and men just hate it, or is that just with my wardrobe?! Usually I would go for a more traditional colour on my nails but I actually love this bright blue colour. I layered up my Barry M nail paint in cyan blue with a shimmery blue Max Factor nail varnish (I hate how they don't name the shades!) weirdly it makes it so much more wearable.
I bought these shorts as the only other ones I own now seem too short to be worn out of the house and I felt really self conscious in them (is this what getting old is like?) I love the frill on the bottom of these (little details really make all the difference) and although they are still pretty short, they are loose enough that I am comfortable wearing them, they really are perfection in shorts form!
Do you ever venture into the expensive shops? Who are your enablers?
