Rihanna on a budget

 T.shirt: Primark Cap: Huf Skirt: H&M Bag: Primark Platforms: H&M Watch: Aldo 

Hey thur everyone! I recently went shopping and found this netted maxi skirt in H&M, it was only £20 and thought it looked pretty similar to the Ri for riverisland one! What a barg aye? I thought I'd pair it with a plain white tee with rolled up sleeves. I love going back to basics sometimes and thought the plain white would match well as its not too busy like the skirt. I added a little knot in the tshirt to make it a little bit more interesting. And again thought it looked similar to some of the knotted tees in the ri for river island collection. I just want to be Rihanna OK. As I was going for a monochrome look yet again, I thought pairing the outfit with my all time fave platforms from H&M would work a treat! They're so bold and make such a statement, my kinda shoes. I also found this triangle bag from Primark, it was only £4 and I love the gold detail and shape. Finally the snapback/cap from Huf!!!! It was in the sale in a small shop and I just love the colours! Too funky to leave out of this post, I felt it added some 'BAM' to the black and white outfit. I head off on holiday this Thursday so will be absent from blogging for a week! I don know about the internet situation but i'll try update my instagram - 'gemmm_b' with some hol pics so check it out if you wish. Much love to all you blog readers, thanks for reading  :) x

All white err'ething

Skirt: River island via ebay Bandeau: New look  Shoes: Ebay Bag: Primark Blazer: Zara Sunglasses: Claire's accessories 

White on white is my absolute fave at the mo'!!! I decided to add in a seriously colourful, patternful - (think i just made up a word) blazer from Zara. Its very loud and well to be honest it's very me. It adds a splash of summery goodness to any outfit.
 I also found this beaut skirt on ebay and paid £6.99 for it. It is originally from River Island. I just love the mesh side panelling and the fact its white is a bonus. Finally these sunglasses are from Claire's accessories. I bought these a while ago when I was desperate for some tinted sunnies but couldn't find them anywhere. Good ol' Claires has still got it! Thought they'd go perfectly with the outfit as they are white framed.
