Closet Archives: Sporty Spice


One of the saddest things you can be is a 26 year old without *proper* savings, *MOPE*. In a bid to rectify this, I have decided to start budgeting like mad in an effort to feel more like a grown up. This means me not buying anything unless I absolutely need it, clothes and makeup included. As a result, you guys will be seeing a loads of clothes already featured on my blog, but re-styled.

As fashion/beauty bloggers, we constantly have this pressure to always buy something new to feature on the blog, so we often forget that there are gems ‘a plenty hidden within our wardrobes! Take these Forever 21 grey sweatpants I bought about a year ago; I have been wearing them as ‘home clothes’ for about 8 months now because they are SO comfortable, on occasion however I do wear them out due to the ‘skinny’ fit, making them pretty versatile. I’ve styled the sweatpants with another one of my BELOVED ASOS CROP TOPS (which you’ll be seeing a lot more of this summer; release the BELLEH!), which I altered slightly by cropping it a bit more. The crop top is from the main range, however they are so stretchy that I think they could probably fit up to a size 22/24. I paired this with my sheer black fringed kimono(?), also from Primark. I teamed this with my Nike Air Max 1’s for a bit of a sports luxe feel.

    You look absolutely incredible. Shopping your wardrobe was definitely a great idea! I’m 26 and without savings too, hard times, but that’s life. We might win the lottery at the weekend and can then go on a shopping spree. Until then, I think shopping our stash is a fab idea. I don’t think I’d ever be someone who would buy something and wear it once! 🙂 xxx

    You look great! I have a pair of sweatpants similar to these and I love them so much – comfy as anything aren’t they?
