I thought I would dedicate today’s post to the high street after someone commented on my instagram that they can never afford anything on my blogs. I am not sure that’s strictly true, as I always try to mix things up and make sure I offer up a good range of price points, but perhaps I haven’t featured enough high street recently? I suppose that’s because as I get older, I am trying to invest in good quality items that I know will last. Yes, they are more expensive at the outset, but if they wash well, hold their shape and last for years then they are good value for money and I am cutting down on my personal contribution to landfill. However, I completely appreciate that when you are trying to make ends meet, those good quality items are way beyond the budget and high street is the only option. I always want this blog to be inclusive, so today I’m sharing some exciting high street finds.
This Navy peacoat from Next would be such a good buy. They are timeless and finish off an outfit beautifully. Someone recommended these straight leg jeans to me after my jeans post and I must admit they look just the ticket. I am going to try them on instore and will report back. Stan Smiths, because I always come back to them. (In fact I am wearing them today)
I adore this jumper from Next, which also comes in two other lovely primary colours, yellow and red. Great colours to brighten up the winter months ahead of us. These straight leg jeans are new in at M&S and I love the shape of them. A total bargain at £25 and you can order your leg length which I love. The black suede bag from New Look is down from £44.99 to £18 so a real bargain.
I think this gorgeous teddy coat from New Look (new in) will sell quickly. I love wearing burgundy in the winter and I always think it looks so good with an all black outfit. These boots from &Otherstories are a bit more expensive but I had to include them as I keep stalking them online. I love the lightening bolt at the side. Just on the tights front, I tend to go with a really high denier if I ever wear tights. These are 100 denier.
I absolutely love this jumper and am really tempted to get it myself! The Warehouse skinny jeans are the ones I was wearing in this morning’s instagram post and are really comfortable as they have a nice high waist that gives the illusion of longer legs. Always a bonus. (They run true to size) Did I mention that they are down from £36 to just £10!! I absolutely love the look of these boots and even though they are not leather, I have found New Look shoes to be very comfortable in the past. The earrings are in the Missoma sale down from £70 and the yellow bag is reduced to £15 in the Warehouse sale. Always nice to add a pop of colour to a monochrome outfit in the winter.
Hope you are having a good monday so far. I am off to the shops before pickup to try on MORE jeans… Wish me luck.
