Budget Friendly Fashion with George - Outfit 1

One thing that I feel I need to do more of on this blog is feature budget friendly pieces. I don't do it that much because in all honesty I buy investment pieces that I absolutely love rather than lots of cheaper pieces that I think are ok, but I know that I'm in a priviliged position being able to do that. That's why I was really pleased when I was contacted by the team at George to see if I wanted to try out some pieces from their new SS15 collections, so this week I'm going to be posting some budget friendly outfits featuring pieces from George! The outfit I chose here uses pieces from their Limoncello collection - I tried to pick some pieces that wouldn't be my normal choices and I really love how this outsit came out. The video below about how to wear botanical prints really made my mind up on the trousers and I'm so glad I went out of my comfort zone to try them - plus they're only £10!

So the trousers, I adore the moody floral print with the charcoal grey and black and I was really pleased that the ankles weren't too baggy for me, a problem I encounter very often with trousers and jeans. They're made from a stretchy fabric so they're really comfortable and the waistband was both fairly high and not too tight, again adding to the comfort factor. I threw on an oversized black top that hit me mid thigh to elongate my figure and my fave black chunky sandals to keep my base palette dark so the acid yellow jacket would pop even more.

Before I made my hair colour more silver I'm not sure I could have gotten away with the colour of this jacket but I think it works wonderfully now, letting the yellow take centre stage. Naturally I added a little sparkle with this gold gem necklace but I also like how it breaks up the look of the long black tee. The fit of the jacket is a little oversized and boxy, not a style that I'd usually pick but I feel it really works here. I love the textured crepe like fabric that it's made from and the zips are the perfect finishing touch keeping it contemporary. Unfortunately the jacket appears to be sold out but below I've linked to a duster coat in the same wonderful colour.
