Bargain Jeans with a Lace Top

I was in TK Maxx last Wednesday looking for crocs for the 10 year old - who has the same size feet as me so I can easily shop for him now. Anyway..that did mean that I was trying on crocs and hoping no-one saw me and thought they were for me!
I will admit they're comfy...but oh my - please don't go there....remember about the holes:


Funny-memes-see-those-little-holes


Anyway - got a pair for him and seeing as I needed something to hide them underneath in the checkout queue (one of my best excuses for buying clothes in recent months!) I had a quick look at the bargain rail and I found a pair of Brooklyn Supply boyfriend jeans for £7!

Jeans - TK Maxx but the same ones are available on ASOS at the moment for £40 - I bought a size 29
Sandals - Next
So I wore them the next day in this outfit. Girlied up the distressing with a little lacy top I got in Oasis last summer...oh and have you spotted the ponytail?! Yes...these photos were taken the day before the big chop. I forgot about them until now. Still no regrets!

And I just want to give a shout out to the person who made one of my bracelets - Jo from Jo's Arm Candy. I saw her Facebook page a while back and sent her a message as I loved the infinity leather woven bracelets she makes. I ordered one in tan and it was only £5 so I wasn't expecting such a gorgeous quality piece for the money. Really lovely and stacks perfectly with my MK Watch and bracelet.

I also ordered a couple of Hello Kitty bracelets, which Jo also makes, for the girls and they were delighted with them. Thanks Jo!

  6. I love the whole outfit (I am a complete sucker for that style of top) and the jeans were a true bargain. You were brave to get the girls different coloured bracelets or do they swap from time to time? H xx

  10. I'm obsessed with boyfriend jeans Avril! I think I need help! You know the ones you commented on on my blog? Well the hubby said I looked like Jim Royle from The Royle Family as the bum was baggy! He doesn't get them! I have now just ordered 3 more pairs this evening argh! But i really want yours from Brooklyn Supply but Asos don't have my size. I am dying for you to open your shop back up too as I want a necklace for my holidays! Hope you are well xx
