River Island Work Wear On A Budget

I decided my work wear needed updating and I decided to stay away from Penneys for once and hit River Island but I needed to do it on a budget of €150.

So I assumed would only be able to get maybe three items so I decided to hit the sale section first and go from there.

Even though it is summer you can never go wrong with a pair of black trousers and I love the leather look waist these wore €50 now €20

Very Small Primark Haul

So this really is a small primark haul I was bringing stuff back and spotted two things I just had to have first up brown snake effect bag and it’s €13 this bag looks so expensive I love it.

Navy floral print culottes I am not 100% sure about these mainly because they seem to be very high waisted on me I would prefer if they wore not so high up and they are €17 but I am thinking about bringing these back maybe pick up a pair in black instead and hope they won’t be as high waisted.

River Island Sale

The river island sale started last week and I got an email the day before inviting me to join the sale early to be honest I think everyone did and I was so disappointed I didn’t see one thing I liked and for some strange reason I knew more items would be added and I stayed up till two in the morning and sure enough more clothes wore added but it was still disappointing sale.

So first up a black print peplum dress £55 reduced to €35 i don’t know the original prices in euro I think I must of been exhausted when I ordered this I am not sure what I was think so this is going back imageimage Embellished cocoon coat it was £65 to €35 this is also going back it’s just not me. image imageChelsea girl heart pussy blow blouse £25 to €14 I love this blouse and it is perfect for work. I work in an office so this is perfect. image imageI love river island hand bags and I always go over board at sale time but this time I was good. Brown animal print satchel £60 to €35 I love this bag it’s really cute and small bag perfect for concerts and maybe a festival this summer. image his has to be my favourite buy I love the detail in this bag the peacock is so pretty and I really can’t wait to wear it out it was £30 to €14. imageimage
