Tesco A-Line Skirt

Posted on

I was in Tesco on Saturday doing my weekly shop and always like to have a little trip upstairs to the clothing department to see what bargains they have in store. Tesco almost always has some gems in the sale section although their prices are very reasonable anyway.

So, I had a little look through and found this A-line black skirt for just £10. I find that the Tesco clothes fit really well because they cut for a more curvy bottom than a lot of the more ‘teen’ stores.

I have a feeling this will become a favourite in my wardrobe. I needed a staple black skirt which will go with everything and love the A-line shape which I find really flattering.

If you want to snap up this skirt it is available here: Tesco Clothing


>The Urge to Purge!

>I’m planning on having a bit of a clear out of the things I just don’t wear anymore, or that no longer fit. Spring is definitely in the air if I’m getting the urge to purge. I’m hoping to have a swishing party in March to get rid of my unwanted things in an ethical and environmentally sound way. How do you decide what stays and what goes? I am terrible for hanging on to things which might come in handy one day. Also, how often do you do a wardrobe clear out? I tend to do one biannually. At the beginning of Autumn/Winter and again at the beginning of Spring/Summer.


>You may remember me lusting after a pair of boots here. Well I was so pleased to pick up these at Primark yesterday for a mere £10. Mean old Spiraboy will not let me wear them until after my birthday though, that’ll teach me for using the birthday excuse for getting new boots!

I won this dress from Rise in a Twitter competition. I totally love it! I also picked up this bag for £1 in New Look. Pips has her eye on it but I thought I’d use it to bring out the pink in the shoes before she gets her hands on it!

Just been chilling out at home. Not a fantastic outfit and as these pics were taken at midnight I’m looking a little knackered too. This skirt was bought in the January sales for £6 I think. It is lined which is great because it doesn’t ride up so much.
