The Basics

Normally I love getting dressed up and a few years ago I wouldn’t have been seen in jeans, let alone leggings! These days though I find myself looking for any excuse to pop on something 100% comfortable, and what better excuse than the weekend? I’m not sure if this outfit toes the line of how short it’s socially acceptable for a top to be when worn with leggings, but it’s too late now!

Top: New Look | Leggings: New Look (similar) | Boots c/o Duo (Somerset style)

My Duo boots have been an absolute saviour this Winter. Given that I walk the majority of places and it’s really quite cold and wet out most of the time they have done an excellent job at keeping my feet both warm AND dry which is quite something. This outfit was worn for brief trip in to Broadmead to browse the sales with Mum- I’ve been really restrained this year picking up only a couple of things in Primark and a cheeky beauty purchase from Harvey Nichols where I was far too excited to find the Choupette for Shu Uemura range in the sale!
To be honest I’ve otherwise ignored the sales this year, I can’t really afford to splurge and there wasn’t anything I had seen full price that I was hoping would get reduced- with the exception of a couple of shops that is…and for those I’ll continue to live vicariously through others!
Have you picked up any sales bargains this year?

  2. I think sometimes basics make the best outfits! I really love this look; the boots and sweatshirt are awesome. xxx

  3. Lucky you snagging some Choupette that collection is so cute, I haven’t even bothered looking at the sales this year I’m trying to save for a holiday instead but I’m loving seeing what everyone else has bought xoxo

  4. I bought a couple of bits in the sale, but I havent really been that bothered either. I think they have been quite rubbish. I got a great Parka from ASOS and that was enough to keep me going. I’m trying not to spend, so I can do ome saving really!

  5. I think leggings might be one step too far for me!

    I haven’t been to Broadmead for ages – must go on a trip there soon.


  6. You’re rocking this look, Laura. I also love your hair this length!
