This is such a safe outfit for a sunny day, but I love the simplicity of it! Denim shorts are a summer essential; the pair I’m wearing here are from Brag Vintage, who stock a huge range of vintage shorts in all sorts of colours, shapes and sizes – this pair are semi high-waisted Levis. The white shirt I’m wearing is another Zara style piece from SheInside – it goes with almost anything, I’d go as far as to say that it’s the perfect white blouse! Here I’m wearing my Valentino Rockstud dupes (see my post about them here), although I did change into my Clarks Originals Wallabees as they are far more comfortable for walking around in all day. I also used my amazing eBay bargain Givenchy style bag (see post here), and wore a cute hairband from Oasap.
What do you think? Would you have guessed that almost my entire outfit is Primark?
I first saw the Jeffrey Campbell Starburst ankle boot in Urban Outfitters a number of years ago and fell in love with the design but not with the price tag (which then was ‘only’ around £90, a steal compared to the £120 you’d be paying today!). I then discovered the equally beautiful Chloe ankle boots pictured above and wanted the (comparatively far more reasonably priced) Starbursts even more! The ankle boot is probably bigger this winter than it has been for a long while, and so more and more similar versions of the studded ankle boot have been cropping up all over, for example the popular Nighthawk from Office and Amazon Biker Boots from ASOS, and after some searching I finally found a pair I was more than happy with the price of!
My boots, pictured below, cost £34.28 altogether including shipping from China and although the quality might be compromised (for example they are obviously not real leather – minus points for quality but great for vegetarians/vegans!), I’m over the moon with them! You can purchase them in black, red or brown here, mine took 3 weeks to arrive and be warned that the pictures used on eBay are not all of these boots (some are clearly the Chloe version which have a more pointy toe and come higher up the calf), however the picture of the black pair seems to be accurate and I’ve taken some for you to check out below. Happy shopping!
I’m part way through a huge clear out of my excessive wardrobe, and I’m trying to raise a little money by selling on some of my clothes!

Like any other girl, I’ve been lusting over a pair of Jeffrey Campbell Litas since forever, and so after learning about knock off versions available on ebay for as little as £27 plus postage, I couldn’t resist! I bought this faux suede pair here (I chose the black faux suede) for a total of £33 including shipping, and I’m over the moon with them. As you can see from the photos, they’re basically the next best thing. The issue of replica products is somewhat controversial and often has an air of snobbery surrounding it, but the fact is that not everyone can afford to spend over £100 on one pair of (albeit gorgeous) shoes. They’re also a great alternative for vegetarians and vegans because as far as I’m aware all JC Litas are made from real leather or suede. What do you think?
