I love Joe Browns, have done for many years, but when you’re on a budget anything higher than the cheapest high st prices can be a bit much so I look, lovingly, through their catalogues and only buy things when I have money that’s specifically set aside for spending (so I do tend to buy at least one thing from them every birthday and christmas plus sometimes when I’ve been saving)
The times I’m most tempted, though, is when they send me a sale catalogue – Their sales are very generous and a lot of things I love often end up in the sale! Soo when the team at Joe Browns tasked me with making a Wishlist, from their up to 50% sale, of up to a value of £100, I couldn’t wait to browse the sale and see what beautiful things I could add to my list.
1 – Irresistable Top in B+W Pattern – Normal Price £19.95 – Sale Price £11.95
One thing my wardrobe lacks is tees which are long enough to go with leggings – Longer than a top, shorter than a dress, this’d look good with leggings when it’s super hot but equally as good with skinny jeans or jeggings. I love the swirling black and white pattern on this one and the gradient effect in the background colours. I think this could be dressed down for a casual time or dressed up a bit more for a night out.
2. Leggings – Normal Price £.9.95 – Sale Price £7.95
I know, you’re thinking leggings are boring! But I wanted to be able to show how £100 could create a mini summer wardrobe, in the Joe Browns sale and without the leggings there would be nothing to wear with the tops! I really do love the idea of both of the tops I’ve featured paired with leggings and some nice sandals – Perfect summer wear.
3. Things I Love Tee – Normal Price £17.95 – Sale Price £11.95
4. Beautiful Butterfly Tote Bag – Normal Price £34.95 – Sale Price £16.95
5. Monochrome Print Swimsuit – Normal Price £29.95 – Sale Price £14.95
6. Vintage Lace Dress – Normal Price £39.95 – Sale Price £19.95
7. Fabulous Floral Wedge – Normal Price £22.95 – Sale Price £14.95
I wanted to finish off my wishlist/mini summer wardrobe with some shoes. These called out to me the moment I started browsing as they’re simple but still pretty with the gathered, floral fabric at the front and they also don’t have too big a heel, which is impossible for me (any heel is tough but a big heel is beyond impossible) – I think I’d be able to wear these easily and they go with the dress and with the Love tee and leggings. I’m not 100% sure that they’d go with the black and white swirl top but I’d probably wear them together even if they didn’t because I’m daring like that haha!
This was Such a fun post to put together and I hope you love reading it as much as I loved making it. I know I didn’t go crazy with colour with this but I decided to keep it simple as that’s something I love but also something that would be wearable for a lot of people. Also, the legging and tee outfits could Definitely be dressed up with some brighter items if that’s the way you wanted it. I know this is a wishlist but I like the idea of making something that’d show a lot of people that they could create a mini capsule wardrobe with less than £100 and I think I definitely did that!
I wrote this post as part of a competition with Joe Browns, but I enjoyed writing it loads and it’s totally honest (I didn’t win by the way)
