Sunday stripes and sunshine.

So I mentioned in my last post that I was on the hunt for an equal stripe Breton top and after going into various shops I could still not find one amongst the array of striped tops. So late last night after kids settled etc, etc I went to my go to place ASOS to see if there was anything I could find. I have to mention that I wanted the top for today (Sunday) and I was looking on Friday night. I get a bee in my bonnet, and when I picture an outfit for whatever occasion I will go to hell and high water to get the “image”in my head . So I knew that my only chance to get the striped top for Sunday would be ASOS with their next day delivery amazingness!!

I am feeling rather smug and extremely thrifty( unusual for me) because the striped top I came across was £6!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes £6!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It needed so many exclamation marks because seriously when I received it next day as promised it was quality, fine knit, great cut, perfect for tucking into the skirt I had picked to wear.

I also wanted to wear the stripes and black with a splash of the ever popular colour of the season yellow and low and behold there was a little yellow suede clutch bag shouting “buy me” so that slipped into my basket too.

The result; A very happy ASOS customer with a lovely £6 stripey top and yellow clutch bag for a great family meal out…..Perfect.

What do you think?  Am I getting thrifty or what?

If there are any speling mitakes I apoligise as I ave had a few wine’s and quit frenkly dont care!

Have a great night

Take care

  8. This post made me laugh … because I noticed that there was lots of “£6” and !!!!!!!!!!!!!! but no mention of how much the bag cost (although when I clicked through to find out, it was perfectly reasonable!! I was expecting £££££££££££s!!) Great outfit … but then you always manage to look sensational!
