Clothes... What should I buy!? smile

Was thinking a denim shirt but, is that wise when things are really tight at the mo so do not spend anything on clothes?? Should I be more sensible with it and buy something like a cardigan or a blazer???

Can do online shopping, have no Primark and limited high street shops near me...

If you don't have one, a really good bra provides the foundation for all other clothing.

I spent about £50 the other day in New look. Got a couple of tops with a zip on the pocket for about £9 each. All lovely bright colours perfect for spring and a nice navy cardi to go over and which looks nice with jeans.

I now feel like I have a few different combos to wear so if money is tight at least you get a few options. I bought a denim shirt a while back and have worn it about twice!

Hmm, a bra... I do need one but that is sooo boring to buy when you have to try a million on just to get one to fit...

Can you link to the cardigan racmum ?

Do you have a Sainsburys? Their leggings are fab quality! Some leggings and a few long vests are my staples. Then you can wear a variety of tops over them without feeling like theyre too short. Maybe a few neutral tops as well and a bright scarf and a necklace? That way you can mix and match smile

New shoes? Or a pair of jeans?

I've got one pair of blue skinnies and a pair of white... Given up on leggings cause I struggle with tops - always seem to look fat / pregnant...

Don't go out much in the evening as money is too tight...

Tempted with summer shoes for work, oh I don't know, could do with a whole new wardrobe, all feels so dated where I haven't bought anything for so long...
