I hate bombarding you with two outfit posts in a day but I forgot to do my OMCZ post yesterday so here I am. Erin picked the theme this time and said:
"Blogging about fashion while living on a budget can be difficult. There is a lot of pressure to keep up with trends and be the first to display a relevant piece. Because it does not suit my finances or lifestyle to constantly purchase new items, I love creating multiple looks around one piece to really stretch the life of my wardrobe. I challenge all of you to create a 'One Item + Three Ways' look to either showcase an item through multiple seasons, or for multiple occasions."
I decided to use my PU skirt from Simply Be for all 2 looks, which I wore with cropped leggings (inspired by 80s Madonna/Cyndi Lauper) as I'm smothered in bruises at the moment from getting up off the stony beach last weekend. (I don't think the leggings look right with the skirt but it's preferable to having my bruised shins on display.)
Firstly, 'Pretty In Pink' featuring the Simply Be cropped pink jumper. I got it when it was £21 and it's gone up to £35 now, ouch. I'm wearing a 26 and it's plenty big. It's only available up to a 24 now but it is oversized. Necklace birthday gift. Boots New Look wide fit.

Next up, 'Spring Lime'. This top is from Asda and is an obnoxious neon lime which doesn't come over in photos. Necklace, old New Look. Hair flower Curious Cat. Shoes, ancient, found in my mum's loft. ;) Blue lippie by Makeup Revolution (with blue eyeshadow over the top to set it.)
And finally 'Eccentric Chic'. Hair bow, present from Nikki (Natty Nikki), necklace, Primarni, Top, old Very, Cons - present from my friend Lisa.
I think my favourite look of the three is the first one. How about you?
