I’m not fashionable but I do like clothes. I’m gonna be honest, I googled ‘autumn/winter trends 2017’ in order to write this post. Part of me thinks ‘clothes don’t matter’ and then I also know that I feel like I’m handling life ‘Like A Boss’ if I’m feeling good about what I look like right? BUT and it’s a big BUT, Confession – I barely have time to shop.

I feel guilty about spending a lot of money on myself and I’m totally more Primark than Prada. I love supermarkets. Because that’s the only place I go these days. I wanna look good but I also don’t want to spend a fortune on something I wear 4 times! So I’m doing fashion on the food shop. Clothes I think are trendy and fashion forward but easy to get and easy to afford. That’s my kind of fashion. So here’s today’s round up and It’s all about the seventies.

The seventies were heavily covered by all the major designers for this season and you can tell that by the way it’s filtered into your local store. This trend is perfect for autumn/winter – the fabrics like cord and flurry shearling lend themselves well to the cooler weather and the colour palette of mustard, camels, and rich jewel tones will last you well for many autumns to come. I personally think the seventies trend works across all body types (hurrah!) Here are my favourite picks that you can grab right now on your food shop or online.

The Wear More Than Once Blouse


If you want an easy way to up your fashion game. Here it is. This pussy-bow blouse is ina perfect 70’s print and can be worn in multiple ways. Go casual with your fave pair of jeans. Pair it with a pencil or a-line skirt for a dressier or work option – OR go all out and pop this beauty under a pinafore or shift dress. It’s priced at £18.00 from the Tu range Sainsbury’s – Grab yours here


The Easy Going Dress



The perfect print – The perfect colour – The perfect fit and all for £16.00.

I love dresses. It’s an outfit all in one and this beauty is under £20.00. Pair it with tights and boots or your work wear shoe and you are going to be good to go. This trapeze style dress is also really flattering on ALL bodies. This is also from Sainsbury’s Tu range who are rocking the 70’s game. Grab yours here

Embroidery LOVE


This is a great little embroidered number that really hits that 70’s vibe. If you really want to go for the trend this would look like perfection with a faux fur gilet or chunky shearling jacket and some boots. Equally, this is an easy way to dip your toe into the trend and pair with some nice warm tights. This is from George at Asda and is £25.00. Grab yours here


A Multi-Tasking Pinafore


You know mum’s have fallen for the dungaree in a BIG way right? I kinda feel the same about a pinafore. this is SO wearable and I love the look with a roll neck underneath. However, I’m personally a little busty and can imagine this making me look a bit like an ‘egg’ so I may have to leave this for you. It’s gorgeous though and priced at £16.00 from George at Asda. Get it here

This Seasons Coat


Look at this gem! I love a fashionable coat but you really don’t want to pay that much for one. If you think the same, run to Asda. Run. This coat comes in this textured, check blue option and also a plain mustard yellow. it’s priced at £35.00 and will last you ALL of Autumn/Winter. Have a gander here
