THE FASHION CHRONICLE: TK MAXX, MATALAN AND PRIMARK HAUL

shopping. #2

I have a love hate relationship with barginous shops.
I love that I can afford to wear clothes that make me feel happy and well dressed, but I hate the way that I end up spending so much with the "it's only a few pounds" mindset.

I headed to Matalan which has recently opened up in Williamson Square in Liverpool.
I went in to find a bag that I could quickly convert into a uni bag as the strap on my duffle bag tore.


I ended up buying this tan, shoulder bag for £6.
It is just the right size for my folder, purse and phone, who needs to be toteing around loads of luggage anyway?

In TK Maxx I found some very summer appropriate baggy pants.
The trousers are high waisted and have elasticated bottoms.

Please excuse this carpet, I have to say it is not mine and belongs to yucky university accommodation.

I love the ease of wearing trousers like this, I always feel so carefree.
I bought them to wear all year around in winter with chunky knits and converse and with vest tops and embellished sandals in summer.

Finally after a long browse in Primark I bought this embellished belt to wear with my new trousers.
I like the mottled, red faux leather and stud mix.
Kind of Sienna Miller boho non?

I headed to the men's section on the hunt for a Rolling Stones T-shirt, as you all probably know I am a little bit obsessed with the Stones.


This tee looks great with leather look leggings, faux leather biker jacket and a chunky knit scarf.

What have you found in the shops recently?
