the february spending ban & the lita debut

COAT - TOPSHOP/JUMPER - ASOS/SHIRT - ASOS/JEANS - TOPSHOP/RING - DOROTHY PERKINS/SUNGLASSES - EBAY/NECKLACE - TOPSHOP/JEFFREY CAMPBELLS - SOLE
It recently came to my attention that I hadn't yet worn my beloved Jeffrey Campbell's in a post, so I thought I'd pop them on to make a nice change from the usual creeper/Dr Marten-related ensembles that I post on here! I really like the way they look with jeans - I've seriously been wearing jeans 24/7, but I promise I'll wear something different soon! P.S say hello to my new favourite jumper which is currently on sale on ASOS - so big and cosy and warm!

On a slightly different note; as those of you who follow me on Twitter will already know, I've undertaken the momentous task of doing a February Spending Ban this month, starting today. This means that I won't be spending any money on unnecessary clothing/beauty items throughout the entire month, in a desperate bid to save some much needed money! I bought quite a few new things throughout January, and really don't need any more clothes or makeup, so am going to be refraining from purchasing anything (apart from the ABSOLUTE essentials, eg. if I run out of dry shampoo I'll have to buy a new one, as I'm sure you'll all understand), for the duration of the month. Logic told me that Feb would be the best month to do it, seeing as it's the shortest one! Some of you have already declared that you will be joining me on the Spending Ban journey (Lou has already written a similar post to mine here!), so I've feebly tried to get started a lil' #februaryspendingban hashtag (haha who do I think I am?) so that we can all keep each other company and help each other keep faith, even when those Topshop boots go into sale. If you want to join in, get on Twitter, get saving, and good luck!

xoxo
