Hello lovelies!
I thought I would share one of my sale purchases that I bought recently. I found this tartan blazer in the River Island sale for £20! I really liked it when it was full price at £45, but just couldn't justify spending that on a blazer that I wasn't likely to wear all the time. I am so glad I found it and in my size too which very rarely happens so late on in the sale. It isn't the warmest  jacket I have to admit, especially for the plummeting temperature over the past few days but I love how I can wear it with my all time favourite Topshop dress and it also looks great with jeans too. You can view all the styles of this Topshop speckle dress here and as you know I already have this dress in two colours but I definitely want another. I think this dress would look really cute in a pale blue paired with some brogues for the summer but that seems like an eternity away! I was bought these Topshop heels for Christmas which I had my eye on for ages. I am a sucker for studs and these did not fail to disappoint. They are so comfortable and I think they are a shoe I could wear just to add a bit of character to a basic pair of jeans, tee and blazer. I would love to know what you think of this outfit and whether any of you have this dress/bought anything nice in the River Island sale recently?! I hope your not freezing your tootsies off in this cold cold weather.

  1. I love how you have put this together and I really like blazer, I think you'll get a lot more wear out of it than you think, it'll funk up most outfits, absolute bargain :)

    it's freezing here, I had my snowflake chunky jumper in today and then it started snowing!! It's like a blizzard out there.

  18. Love your tartan blazer, what an absolute little bargain too! I had my eye on a similar one in Topshop but just couldn't justify the hefty price tag. Adore your nails too.
