There is something about comfortable clothing that sometimes beats getting glammed up. As much as I love going all out for events and getting dressed to the nines, I also love chilling in baggy clothing and trainers. Contrary to the popular believe, that does not make me a chav. If trainers weren’t so expensive I’d probably own more of them but since I could probably buy two decent pairs of heels with the price of a basic pair of trainers, I am not about to start a collection anytime soon.
These days when I go shopping I have to consider whether the purchase I am about to make is actually worth it. Is it good value for money? Gone are the days when I blindly buy things purely because I think it’s cool and my closet wouldn’t survive without it. Lol, it’s crazy how you can convince yourself you need something when you definitely don’t. I do this a lot with sunglasses. I buy new ones every summer because somehow the old ones are not good enough anymore. I actually need to stop. Whilst I am a little more sensible with my shopping habits, I am not perfect, I still do those random shopping trips usually fueled by a bad mood or just an itch to spend. #Problems.
On a good day, I shop in stores that are not extortionate and are able to provide me with quality clothing. Below are a list of stores I would recommend if you are shopping on a budget.
- Zara (For quality basics i.e cameos)
- Asos Market Place (for unique pieces that make all the difference to an outfit)
- Charity Shops (don’t knock it till you try it trust me). #Thrifting
I recently posted a street style inspired lookbook on my youtube channel.

Until next time spend sensibly.
