Oh hey! Is this actually an outfit post we’re seeing on my blog?! Why of course it is! Long time, no see! I mean, the last style post was in November, so it has been quite a while, hasn’t it? I just haven’t been able to get back in to style blogging because I’ve been in a style rut!
But I’m back with an outfit post today. And I don’t know when the next one will be, so I hope you enjoy this one 🙂

Create An Off-Duty Look On A Budget

In an ideal world, when you get pick a Spring outfit from a brand, the weather would be actually be Spring. Bright, sunny, maybe the air is still a little crisp… and I’ll take that as long as there’s plenty of pretty cherry blossom, hues of rich greens and yellows. 
But nope! We ain’t go none of those thing! Nada! It’s England, so you get overcast, many (MANY) shades of grey, a bit of rain and wind, and a backdrop of brown lifeless leaves that are dead as a doornail! That’s the reality of fashion blogging. The weather is always against us. I guess the north east hasn’t got the memo about Spring yet. HELLO, NORTH EAST. Wake up. GIVE US SOME SUN.
An Off-Duty Look On A Budget
So a couple of weeks ago, George At Asda challenged me to create an off-duty look for £35. I do have some difficulties in finding clothes from supermarket brands to fit me properly (height-wise!) but with some styling skillzzz, I can sometimes find quite an outfit that I will wear time and time again!

As I’ve produced some content for George At Asda, I won’t go in to too much detail on this blogpost. You can find the full post at the George Life & Style Hub! But basically, I was given a budget of £35 to pick 3 key items that would make an off-duty look. I managed it with £4 left over!
Everyone’s idea of an off-duty looks varies to one another but for me, it means comfortable and non-restricting. For this outfit, I really wanted a pair of loose-fitted printed trousers* and there are many to choose from at George right now. I don’t really know how else to wear printed trousers other than a plain, fitted white t-shirt. There’s no need to over complicate things if a plain t-shirt goes so well!

The supermarket brands do some great accessory designs, in particular the handbags! I love how this white handbag* complemented the outfit perfectly, as it gave it more of a grown up look. It smartened the outfit up a lot!

Head over to the George Life and Style website to read the post I created for them. Hopefully you will be able to find some trendy style inspiration for fashion on a budget!

    I love those trousers! They're just the sort of thing I like to wear in the spring/summer when I don't actually want to get my legs out (read: I've not shaved them!) but I'm not sure if they'd be long enough for me from Asda as I'm just under 6ft tall x
