You all know that I am a massive fan of ASDA's clothes and when they asked if I was up for a challenge, I readily agreed. Picking out what to wear is a total nightmare for me at the best of times so as you can imagine, I'm absolutely awful at packing for a weekend away. George at ASDA challenged me to pick out some of my favourite pieces from their website for a 'capsule weekend wardrobe' and although it was pretty tough trying to find pieces that would all work together, it was also a lot of fun! Mark and I have been spending a lot of weekends away recently and I wanted to inject some summer into my wardrobe and I will be sharing how I style up my picks when we visit Oxford and Portishead over the next few weeks :) Seriously, I cannot wait to show you how gorgeous this seaside print dress is!
I have been pretty ill over the last few days so this outfit was the perfect way to ease myself out of pyjamas and back into society. Apologies for the squinting in these photos, it was surprisingly bright and I couldn't find my sunglasses, haha! I felt really good in this outfit, who would have thought that jeans would end up being my outfit of choice?! This zipped pair really impressed me, they fit really nicely, even accounting for the ridiculous size difference between my hips and waist- not bad for a mere £14!
This top could have been made for me: stripes, lace and embellishment- what more could you ask for? The fact that it is ridiculously comfy is just the icing on the cake! I picked this Korres lip butter stick up recently and it has been soothing my chapped lips a treat. It is supposed to be tinted but I haven't really noticed it. I imagine it would be a bit more obvious over a lip tint?
Yes, I have committed the ultimate fashion faux pas: the shametuck but it was for a good reason, I promise ;) I really love the zip detail on these jeans and wanted to show it off. You can also see the gorgeous lacy detail on this top in this picture too- it could be overkill for some but I have never been a fan of minimalism!
It was really difficult to photograph these shoes (#firstworldproblems) but they are a pearlescent off-white/cream and have a slightly metallic sheen. The material is super soft meaning they are absolutely lovely to wear and I know I will get lots of use out of them with my summer dresses and skirts this summer.
Would you wear supermarket jeans? Are you a fan of George at ASDA?
P.S. I was sent these items to review but if I didn't love them, I wouldn't feature them!
