Saturday is Sales day!

Yes sales day today.

Hiya to everyone, Yes I've been to the sales today - well one shop actually Matalan have there sale on right now both online and in store  ... super!
Came home with a few bargains, however two will have to go back maybe for bigger sizes - not sure until I get there.
Firstly I'll share what my #ootd is.
Jeans again today, my next slim leg options, still love these, and with endless tops to pair with them I'm never short of choices.  Today my Falmers lace peplum top came out to play - opted to wear a pale blue cami style t shirt underneath to compliment the blue jeans.  Short sleeves and a lovely gathered peplum hem, it just sits at the right level below my jeans waistband.  Only down side to this top, I've had it quite a few years and it's developed a hole.  Its where the fine lace mesh has pulled, and in a rather obvious place, I'm really quite miffed about this as I love wearing it with a different coloured t shirt underneath which makes it a very versatile top to wear  Will have to see if I can somehow fix it??!!
Wore my Next shimmer baseball trainers as I was just popping to the shops, in a hope I would look trendy.  Not sure if I succeeded with this - you'll have to let me know ;-)

Back to today's sales items:
This shirt I just love the feel of it - is that a reason to buy a shirt, hell yes indeed!
It feels soft, cool and smooth, a great cover up if I've overdone the sun in the warmer summer months. I say this a bit tongue in cheek for British weather. ha ha!
A masculine looking shirt but with a loose, baggy style to it.  Two breast pockets and a lovely long length enabling me to either wear hanging loose or tucked in.  A subtle blue and white stripe that will look equally at home with jeans or for a more classic look tucked into a tailored skirt.  This as previously mentioned from Matalan and a great bargain at £8!!

I also returned home with a cold shoulder style top.  I thought this pretty red and white top would look fab with white jeans or wide leg linen trousers. At only £5 be rude not to have bought it home with me. Although not sure if the fit is right for me, I'm going to try a larger size and see, if not I'll refund or exchange it for something else.

Also bagged this.  Long line sleeveless top, in a heavy chiffon type material,  I was drawn to the colours, striking lime green, olive green, dark and light blue on a black background. In the sale begging me to buy it, and for only £7 I think I got a bargain for sure.  This will be amazing for the summer maybe over pale blue or lime green Capri trousers.  Thinking ahead for the cooler Autumnal months paired over black leggings or trousers.

Hope you can get out to the sales, take advantage of a few bargains, and share with me your cheeky finds.  I'll look forward to it!

So until the next time people...bye bye. X
