Coral & Denim

It seemed that Northern Ireland got a good deal on the weather yesterday. While everyone was complaining on Twitter about rain and all my friends at Avenue 57 were getting their wellies and raincoats out, I was out in the garden with the girls & got two lots of washing dried on the line!
Wearing lots of Room31 again today - I just love that shop. Sorry if I'm a bore about it but I have such a tiny clothes budget so it's lovely to find a site with affordable fashion that you're not going to see everyone else wearing at the school gate.

Wearing some slightly faded blue jeans from Room 31 which cost £5 in the sale. You couldn't go wrong! I have become a bit bored of the navy blue skinnies. They are definitely the most flattering colour to wear but I fancied a slightly distressed denim for a change and these are absolutely perfect. They are quite a tight fit but have plenty of stretch. All sizes available still on this link. And they look much better in real life - the website photo does not do them justice (sorry Ruth!)
And I have to tell you about my Matalan sandals. These are another great summer buy. They've just been reduced to £5 in the sale and come in three colours. With the summers we have, I am all for spending your money on boots and shoes and saving your money on sandals!
Finally, my lightweight short sleeved cardi is also from Room 31. Ruth and the team sent it to me for my birthday! What a lovely surprise when it and a couple of other items arrived in the post last week. I'll share the others with you in the next week or so!
After seeing the photos, I decided to add a belt and I think the outfit looks better with it as it brings the sandals into the outfit more. The three year old took this picture and I added some flash so you can see that the cardigan is slightly sheer - lovely for layering.
Remember, you can get 25% off at Room 31 (excluding postage) using SGS25 at the checkout! That makes those jeans only £4 (or a total of £7.99 including postage). Have a great Tuesday :)



  1. I love your outfit. I have a coral cardigan and it's one of my faves..brightens up any outfit :) x

  2. That cardi is lovely.

  3. Great Jeans and what a bargain, I must check out that site! I have to say nobody would think you have a tiny clothes budget - you work it well sister!

  4. Do we live *that* far apart? It was *bucketing* here!

    Really like the colour of that cardi!

  5. Those jeans are fab - love them.

  6. So jealous of your sun and style!

    Love the black belt over the cardigan - GREAT!
    As always, thank you for your support and link to Avenue57.com

    I have a new love for Room 31 - it's not just the clothes and the prices but their customer service which is AMAZING - oh and the tissue wrapped parcels - I love that!

    Now I need those sandals so off to Matalan to look

  7. Coral is definitely my favourite colour for summer :) And the belt really pulls the look together, love it. x

  8. How do you find the sizing at Room 31? After seeing a link on your blog, I ordered a top and some jeans from there last week. The jeans were ok but the top was tiny. I'm a size 12/14 and ordered a M/L I couldn't even get my shoulders in. I got my 14 year old to try it on, she's a size 6/8 and it just fit her. Quite disappointed by my first experience and not sure I will order again from there.


    1. Hi Angie, I think because there are a range of brands, the sizing won't necessarily be the same across the board. However, Ruth and the team are so accommodating about returning things. I've sent back a couple of items and it was not a problem at all and I got an immediate refund. Hope this helps! x

  9. That looks amazing, I hadn't heard of room 31 totally looking chic though lady!



  10. FAB jeans love. They look great on you. Utterly bargainous as well! And lucky lucky you with the weather. Beyond jealous. We can virtually swim to school here....



  11. Never mind what you have on, little Miss G is looking very pretty in pink xx

  12. Will have to check out Room 31, seems like great bargains!

  13. love the outfit, especially with the added belt! :D
    The sandals are cute too, perfect for summer!

  14. Love the jeans! How long are they? I'm a bit of a giraffe, but would wear them with heels, so doesn't matter too much if they ankle-skim a tad. Already bought the Marina jacket, which I love. Not that I would go all double-denim and wear them together, of course :)

  15. Ooh the Carrie & rhea. Definitely!
