Chunky Knits : 20 under £20

If there’s one thing I love more than jeans it’s a chunky knit, or any knitwear to be honest, but chunky knits have a special place in my heart. So in the name of research (well thats laughable!) i’ve compiled a fun list of 20 chunky knits under £20 –  can you say no to that price? I guess you can try! The Chunky Knits I’ve tried to be clever and make it so that you can click on the image and it’ll go straight to the webpage but clearly I’m not that clued up because it doesn’t work on them all so I’ve also listed them below! Beware, high levels of white, cream, beige and grey! This was honestly so much harder than I thought but I did it! I would honestly wear every single one of these as well! Let me know if you’d like me to do another post like this on something else! Another item of clothing? no 100 under £100’s though PLEASE!!

New Love // Casual Trousers

I’m a jeans girl through to the bone, but recently I’ve been eyeing up casual trousers, something I never thought I would. Peg leg, flared, culottes, you name it I’ve got my eye on it. I love how smart they look and feel like it’s something I could really go for. My main problem is my height, whenever I’ve looked for a pair of trousers before I find that they cut off at the wrong place making me look ridiculously lanky!! I’m restarting my search and this time I’m a woman on a mission, I’ve actually ordered a pair of culottes, shock horror! I promise myself that I won’t give up until I find a pair this time! Hold me to it!! Those casual trousers will soon be in my possession! Here’s some looks I found on Pinterest and am absolutely loving! Shop The Look // Casual Trousers So in my quest for the perfect pair of casual trousers, I’ve found a few too many than my bank balance can handle. So I thought I would share the love, and the damage! Let me know what your thoughts are on this look! Do you have a favourite pair/style?! I would love any recommendations on where to go or a particular style you’re loving! Don’t forget to follow me on Bloglovin’ so you never miss a post.

5 Steps to Becoming a Savvy Shopper

Now I don’t know how authorised I am to give you this kind of information, not being such a savvy shopper myself and all that! But what I do know is that these are simple steps that honestly help you and don’t take much time or effort to impliment… you can thank me later! Use Cash I find it really hard to budget when I’m shopping and generally loose all sense of what’s in my bank account. I do check what’s there before I go out but purely so I don’t face the embarrassment of my card being declined, not so I have enough to buy dinner that evening. Clearly I’d rather have the shoes and eat super noodles (we all know I eat whats in Sue Crowe’s cupboards – love you Mum). Anyway, what I sometimes do and you should definitely do, is check my bank before I go and withdraw the amount I can spend in cold hard cash. I’m telling you now when you see the pot going down with every purchase you soon think twice! Impulse buys will be a thing of the past – maybe not the sweets at the checkout though, they always get me! Do Your Research Online I know you want to buy the ~insert product you NEED here~ right now but take a minute to utilise the world wide web and you could save yourself a few pounds. Seriously guys, it adds up! I have to admit I personally find this a hard one to remember but it’s so easy to do and really helps! Do your research! A savvy shopper use’s deal sites, there’s so many to choose from and even if you just type in the store and ‘discount code’ into google you might find something! There’s so many different offers available out there like this discount code for Pink Boutique and if you can’t find anything then try the sit and wait game. If you leave the pieces you’re after in your virtual basket for a couple of hours (if you can manage the wait), brands often send you a gentle reminder via email, hopefully with a little discount code to tempt you! Will you wear it? Use the 3 times rule Before you buy it, visualise how you’ll wear it. If you can’t think of 3 different occasions/ways you’ll wear the item then you don’t need it! A savvy shopper never buys something they’ll then have to buy more things to style it with, that is one hell of a big no no! I’m someone who likes to make my wardrobe really work for me so even though this may be your absolute worst nightmare, I have pieces I can wear for day, night and work. I like to stick to separates that can be mixed and matched to create different looks, dressing them up or down! Use Online Beauty Retailers I know it’s hard when you’re in store and your favourite foundation that you just ran out of is right there, but being…
