10 under £20

Top: £14 in the sale, Asos. Skirt: £19.99, New Look. Sunglasses: £20, Toyshades. Sandals: Christian Louboutin (old). Bag: £55, The Jacksons
There is nothing I like more than lusting after something and being able to buy it there and then (it's fair to say I'm a pretty compulsive shopper). And there's something about that £20 pricetag that makes everything just more accessible - wear with a pair of expensive sandals and voila, you look good to go and far more expensive than the outfit you're wearing.

This New Look skirt is the perfect summer staple and I've been wearing it non-stop. And you'll probably recognise this Asos top from previous instagram posts - it is quite sheer so I would recommend a nude bandeau bra underneath (I get mine from Marks & Spencer but American Apparel do some too) - to avoid the 'shelf' look from strapless bras and elasticated necklines! 

Now, about the Louboutin sandals....I bought these in the Matches Sale when I worked there over 9 years ago - they cost around £180 even then but every summer they work with every piece in my wardrobe and look effortless. Not everything I bought back then stood the test of time, trust me, so I outdid myself with these! 

So this brings me to the £20 edit - 10 great items that will help 'pep' up your summer wardrobe without eating into your holiday savings...because we all need a cheap thrill now and then.
