On a mission to save for all those necessary things in life, my husband and I have given ourselves a strict budget per month. Now I know clothes shopping isn't a necessity but I do try to make it one(!). However looking at the bigger picture (gosh, can you tell I'm mid 30's now) I still don't do too badly, I just try to buy well and invest or save for items. That being said, there does come a point at least once a month I feel the need to online shop. I enjoy that mid week parcel arriving, especially when the kids are driving me nuts! So Saturday I started looking at Uniqlo and there's plenty I am after - for next months budget now of course. In a bid to really stop myself from checking out my full basket and show restraint, I am putting it out there live on my blog. You guys go fourth and shop - just don't tell me you bought any of it ok?
|I think this is the sweatshirt that the lovely Sue blogged about (and turned into a whole other sweatshirt via transfers from memory, the clever lady) and I remember seeing it and thinking it was the perfect marl grey. At £14.90 it's not going to break the bank either.|
|£14.90 this mainly cotton sweatshirt is so cute. As someone who feels the cold this is a great alternative to a t-shirt as it's just that little bit thicker.|
|I've purchased their silk before so I just put silk into their search window and voila - it's all on sale! £39.90 down to £24.90 I love this t-shirt in silk. They have it in pink and blue too.|
|Cotton 90% and cashmere 10%, £24.90 down to £14.90, bargain! They also had it in plain grey with white sleeves - I loved it and it was in my basket but it's now sold out (phew, that's that one gone!).|
On a side note - it was not intentional that there is a bit of a pink and grey theme going on here. Oh and as I look down at what I'm wearing typing this, I'm in marl grey joggers and a pink cotton jumper....Grey and pink it is then this month!
Ending on some shoes I found that I shared on instagram, Facebook, Twitter - so you've probably already seen them but they are so beautiful, in case you haven't, here they are.
|Phase Eight's Tamara shoe, £110 down to £55. They come in black as well but I think these are just perfect for coming now. Leather in and out, I bet they are so comfy, I'm drooling.....but I so don't need these, someone else buy them, please?|
Anyone else joining me in showing some self control? Am I also alone in the enjoyment in online shopping, I fear it's got worse since child number 2 came along and she's a little madam in the shops - I blame her!
