At this moment in time it has never been more important than to look after our pennies whilst still looking and feeling good.
I wanted to share with you my style advice on how to be clever with your money in the high street & how spending a little more on that investment item is actually a cost effective way of shopping.
I would highly recommend before any shopping trip it is advisable to check your wardrobe first and make a list of items that need replacing and items that you are missing that could bring existing items up to date, by doing this you will only buy what you need. This is a great cost effective way to shop.
Setting yourself a budget is a great idea as it will keep you focused on your spend
Looking at the trends for the new season will help you review your wardrobe to see if garments that you already own can transcend seamlessly into the new season for you...this will save you time & money. Think of the colours, shapes & styles that you have in your wardrobe and how they can work for your wardrobe for Autumn / Winter, you can still look ‘on trend’ with existing items.
These Spring / Summer 2022 colours are moving into Autumn / Winter season;

Creating a Capsule Wardrobe is a great way to really get the most from your clothes.
I'm on a mission to help women have a wardrobe of clothes they love, that gives them confidence and makes them feel amazing.
A Capsule Wardrobe is a small collection of clothes you love!
Many of us have a wardrobe which is bulging full but we only wear perhaps 20% of the clothes in it for at least 80% of the time. A capsule wardrobe allows every item of clothing to be worn in the knowledge that it will mix easily with other items of clothing so that the whole wardrobe is used regularly. The net effect is that although the person may actually own far fewer items of clothing, their look and style is far more varied because they are wearing all of it rather than just 20% of the wardrobe for most of the time.
Write a list of the gaps you now see in your wardrobe ie; blazer, dresses, skirts, tops, trainers etc
I would highly recommend before any shopping trip it is advisable to check your wardrobe first and make a list of items, these could be;
1. Items that need replacing as the original garment has seen better days
2. Items that you are missing that could bring existing items up to date.
By doing this you will only buy what you need, this is a great cost effective way to shop. Let your true style personality come through when you are creating your outfits or purchasing anything new. And if you plan your shopping, this will not work out to be an expensive option.
Lots of love
