Sheer Luck

This outfit isn’t my usual style I don’t think, I’m not very good at branching out of my comfort zone right now, especially whilst still trying to adjust to the “new look” healthy me. Still, change does us all good from time to time and there is nothing like being a blogger to make you push your boundaries.
Blouse c/o Just for 5 pounds | Jeans: Primark | Sandals c/o Clarks
Blouses aren’t something I’d usually wear, especially not a sheer one like this but when the folks at Just for 5 pounds sent this one over to me I decided to give it a go. I’m not very good at knowing how to style these things so played it safe with my £9 Primark skinny jeans and some sandals that I was sent from Clarks last Spring (that I never got to wear last year really). I’m still amazed at how well these jeans have lasted and overall I quite like how this outfit came together and the blouse is a really lovely colour and good quality.
Just for 5 pounds is like a fashion version of a 99p shop. It’s always an adventure browsing a site like this as some things will be brilliant and others less so. Out of all the discount clothing retailers I’ve come across I think there seems to be more hits that misses on this one and there are several pieces that I’d like to add to my wardrobe over the coming months.
Have you ever shopped with Just for 5 pounds before? I’d love to know what you thought, or if you’ve tried similar.

  1. £5? How do they do that? I feel knowing about this site now could be dangerous haha, I’ll try not to spend too much

    Also, you look absolutely lovely, you should try new looks more often 🙂

  2. I’ve never shopped with them, I’m not sure why.

  4. Those sandals look lovely – as do you! I thought this wasn’t your usual style when I clicked through, but it really suits you. The colour of the blouse looks really nice with your hair colour! I’ve never shopped with Just for 5 pounds before, but I’m going to have a little browse (you bad influence!). The boots on the front page had me clicking straight through, but sadly they don’t have my size! xxx
