This is the bargain Spring/Summer outfit I originally wore for a local day out because it was comfy and practical. I entered it in a Cosmopolitan magazine competition for best street-style in the bohemian category and it won!
The dearest thing in this whole outfit is the Clark’s comfy sandals, which were £35 (my feet swell in the heat and I need arch support so these were essential).
I got the skirt in a sale for £3! It was two sizes too big but I knew my Mum could easily put darts in the waistband.
The vest was actually free with another magazine lol
I got the bag from a charity shop.
The scarf/necklace was a present but also from a charity shop.
The sunglasses glasses were on sale in Autumn the year before.
My hair dye was a cheap box dye from Naturtint that had gotten much lighter and brighter because of the sunshine that month.
Fifteen years later and I still have the bag, shoes and scarf. 😊 It really is possible to look good on a budget, by teaming simple pieces with one or two statement pieces (that still don’t have to be dear). 💃🏻
