I've always wanted my blog to be an honest space and that's why I am here to tell you that sometimes it's hard to purchase clothes every month. As a blogger I feel that there's a constant need to always keep up with the trends and have the hottest new stuff, but you know what? It's bloody hard and requires a lot of money! 

I feel that last year I fell into the habit of buying clothes just for the sake of it. Fast forward to a couple of months later and you have a room full of clothes that you haven't worn and all they are doing really and truthfully, is collecting dust. So I decided to change my shopping habits and actually realised that you know what? There are so many ways to rewear your old clothing items. 

This leads me onto my outfit of the day because guess what? Only two items, I repeat two items were new purchases but damn cheap purchases I can tell ya that! Clap for a sister. The rest of the outfit was purchased months, even years back because trends come back around. 

My look was inspired by the 80's of course (I'm a sucker for it) and started from the gorgeous jewellery pieces featured which were my Nan's in the 80's. I've never considered wearing black and white on a regular basis but at the moment I am loving the combo! I think the weather has a huge part to play in this decision as the cold temperatures always make me think of dark colours. I love this beret as it's such a classic look and would you believe it was only £2! I paired my velvet shirt with my wide leg trousers, red snakeskin boots for a pop of colour and topped off with a dogtooth coat - a classic and comfortable look. 

Following on from my initial confession don't always feel you have to buy clothes to stay current because most of the time it really is such a waste of money. If you do want an alternative to the 'high' prices of the high street then try visiting a vintage shop or even look in your older relatives wardrobes (ask their permission first of course ;) because I can guarantee you will find a gem.
