Summer is upon us! Hoorah! Let’s hope it sticks around for a while this time, so we can get a chance to really soak it up.
When the hot weather rolls around, usually it’s time for an entire new wardrobe. But when pennies are being pinched, it’s never going to be easy to achieve the perfect summer look. Bargain hunting is something I’m very used to these days – insert cliché Student Life problems here – and a whole new wardrobe isn’t particularly in the budget at the moment.
This is why I love accessories – a statement necklace or a colour block bag can transform an entire outfit in seconds, without having to dig too deep in those poor pockets. I’ve put together a list of my current favourites under £40 from various places, all with summer in mind. If it’s not obvious, I’m still obsessed with the colour white, but I find that tan/brown is sneaking its way in more and more. The two together are just so classic!
I’m particularly drooling over the tan satchel – so gorgeously structured! – the cream mules which will definitely go with everything ever, and that gigantic necklace. And of course I had to throw in some beautiful hexagonal earrings just because.
I hope this will inspire you to get creative with your accessories – particularly if you’re in a pinch! Tell me – what accessories are you loving at the moment? What are your tips for saving money on a summer wardrobe? Let me know in the comments!
