Hi guys! It's so hot here in the South West at the moment, so today I went for a simple look and wore my loose printed trousers to try and keep cool. I'm really loving teaming pink tops with these trousers! Apologies for the not-so-brilliant photos, but this is after a day out shopping!
Yes, I did say shopping... So you can probably guess what the #nobuyjuly spending ban update is. We'd wanted to check out TK Maxx for a while, so we took this opportunity to visit one of the retail parks in Poole, and then headed off to Tower Park for lunch at Chiquito (first time there and it was lovely)!
So, I'd actually planned on doing a big shopping spree but I was heavily disappointed in both TK Maxx and nearby Matalan. TK Maxx didn't have anything I was looking for and Matalan seemed to have run out of size 10 in just about anything I actually liked! I did buy one item from Matalan though. I'm sure it will feature on the blog soon (FYI - it's pink!). It cost just £10, so not such a bad spending ban fail, to be fair. I also used a store credit of £35 to buy a new handbag from JustFab. It's tan faux leather and will be great all year round, particularly in Autumn/Winter.
So, yes my spending ban has pretty much come to a premature end, but I think I did really well after 18 days! I posted a few items via Twitter during the ban which I would've liked to have bought, so if you didn't catch them, here they are:
