purple monochrome

Blazer: H&M / Shirt: Primark / Necklace: Topshop / Skirt: Topshop / Boots: Urban Outfitters
I've been M.I.A for absolutely ages haven't I! Life has been a little stressful of late, but I'm hoping to resume regular blogging activity from now on. 

This outfit showcases just a few of the many things I've bought recently (I know, I'm a bad person and my purse hates me), but this whole outfit cost me under £75 which I think is pretty darn good. 

I'm a huge fan of monochrome, I think it's timeless and always looks great with a block colour, which is exactly what I've done here. I love a blazer, so finding this for £10 in H&M was such a bargain, especially for such a high quality item in such a 'Stella McCartney' colour. I'm also so chuffed with the blouse, and very glad that alphabet print is back; it makes my inner nerd very happy. This shirt was £12 so quite expensive for Primark, but the quality is pretty good and I think it's wonderful anyway.

My favourite piece of this outfit are the boots. They are probably the most daring accessory I own (I'm not very exciting), but they just add character to any outfit. They were originally £120 but they were reduced and with 20% student discount on top, I got them for a bargain £16. Real suede boots for £16 - you can call me the bargain Queen. 

Let me know what you think of this outfit. Have you found any super bargains recently?


  1. Third picture down looks like school uniform (except the shoes).

    However, I do like word games and therefore the blouse is a winner for me.

    1. Haha what a cheek! It is a fantastic accessory for word games though, I'll give you that.
