Green Day.

I'll get straight into this, I have a problem.  A temperature related problem. I am the type of girl who will go out in a tiny jacket in the height of Winter simply because A. I'm too cheap to put it in the cloakroom and B. I can't be bothered to carry a heavy coat either.  So for me wearing a sensible coat for a night out is pretty much unheard of.  So no-one was more surprised than me when I was finally persuaded to stay warm and don a 'proper' coat.  

So I chose this bottle green Warehouse number.  I picked this up in the sale for £15 and I think it was such a bargain.  I forget how much it was originally but I am sure it was probably a lot as is everything in Warehouse.  Probably why I don't shop there much! 





































Faux leather skirt//Primark//£8.00
T-Shirt//Topshop//£10.00
Boots//New Look//£7.00
Bag//H&M//£14.99
Necklace//Topshop//£3.50 (sale)
Bracelets//H&M and Topshop (came in assorted sets)


I love this T-Shirt, it's from Topshop and when I spotted it I knew it would be perfect for me.  I'm a big T-Shirt girl, I love to dress them up as they are inexpensive.  I am quite fussy with my outfits and tend to try to not wear the same thing (as an outfit) too many times on nights out.  I'm not quite as bad as some, I will wear the same outfit twice, mostly because I have neither the money or the time to go shopping for new outfits! That's why I like plain basics, statement necklaces have been literally a godsend to my wardrobe.  
This 'leather' skirt is so easy to wear, I have worn it so many times.  With it being black it goes with everything and makes my outfits look a little more edgy.  I know most people have these skirts, but it doesn't mean they aren't great! 

I am so gutted the necklace is twisted! It was a mixture of my rushing and my boyfriend who is not a natural photographer by any stretch of the imagination! He once took a picture of me on my Birthday and cut my head out of the picture, claiming he didn't realise I wanted my head in it.....there are no words! The necklace is so unusual I love mixing metals and it matches my bag perfectly.  The bag is so nice too! It's not overly expensive and it matches pretty much all my outfits, bargain.  I mentioned it in a wishlist post here actually, with some more H&M beauties!

Do you have a wardrobe of basics you jazz up for a night out? What are your secrets to having a full wardrobe on a budget? Do share! :)

  1. Love that jacket. Cannot believe it was only £15!

    I do exactly the same; to refrain from having to leave my coat somewhere or to save having to carry it on a day out should I have to take it off, I simply won't put one on. xx

  2. £15?! I nearly don't believe that! Brilliant find and I love your outfit overall :)

    I'm the same too, I never wear a coat on a night out even though I'm always freezing just because it's always a few euro to leave it into the cloak room. Every bit adds up!

  4. I need this jacket in my life. I love the bag from H&M they always do such nice bags. I always wear my leather skirt its so easy to style, I can't believe this is only £8 from Primark they do the exact same one in River Island which is almost triple that.x
