I absolutely love reading these types of posts on other blogs so when I was approached to get involved I couldn’t wait! I love adding pieces to my wardrobe that are multifunctional and can be worn for both work and play; it considerably brings the cost per wear down which is always a good thing!
George at Asda is one of my favourite stores for online shopping. I always find at least a couple of things I want to buy and I find their fit true to size too – which is always a bonus, particularly when shopping online. Their prices are reasonable too, for example the skirt that is the key piece in this post was just £16! £16!! Thats about 2 lunches in London so a total bargain in my eyes.
I am totally in love with the midi length this season, as I may have already said, and this skirt is the perfect way to feed this addiction. The best part about it? It is stretchy! A few of my other skirts have zips and whilst they are comfortable if you are standing, once you have sat down a while they start to get uncomfortable. This is definitely the perfect skirt for a dinner out – eat as much as you like!
So I wanted to create 3 styles that could be worn for different occasions using the same skirt. The first look was for work; for this I chose a black wrapover blouse and a pair of low block heels. Simple and sophisticated. Then I wanted a transitional look that could go from work to play – so adding this white blouse was perfect! Smart enough for the office, but if you’re heading out for drinks just unzip it slightly and throw on a pair of heels and you’re off!
Finally I absolutely fell in love with this dusky pink faux leather jacket – and it was only £25! It is collarless which is great and it is light enough to wear during spring and summer. It compliments the skirt perfectly and by adding a plain cami vest and pair of sandals this look could take you to the beach, shopping, or for coffee with the girls.
All items in these looks were from George at Asda and I absolutely love each and everyone. The total cost was less than £100 for all 3 looks and you could easily style this skirt with existing items in your wardrobe too – making it even more cost effective!
