Candy Girl On A Budget

Sweet, Sugar, Candy Man…

Hello Lovelies


It’s summer and the pastels are well and truly in. With this trend only pastels are allowed, mixed in with well tailored retro styling. A match made in retro and summer 2013 heaven.


As we all know fashion is great but it’s a lot better when we can have a great look and rock it, but on a budget. I love fashion even more than the next person and even I like to get a bargain and feel great but know that I have not spent a fortune, and that when this trend goes out I can just put the items away and not feel guilty that I have spent a lot of money on something, I have just put into the cupboard. Isn’t this something we all want as women of nice taste.


With this in mind I have created a view of the best on offer to cover this trend on the high-street. With nearly every item under £50, with just a few added extra’s that stretch the purse a little more, to get you thinking and inspiring.

Although there is not that much out there in the high street at a first glance, sometimes you have to dig a bit deeper and uncover the true gems.


This look is great with most of the items being under £50. This makes the trend affordable and great to rock for anyone. I love it and even if you can not afford every item you can pick a few that would be great staple pieces. I recommend the cardigan as one major staple piece. I could of put it with all of the outfits and it just goes with everything in this trend. Also the white boxy shirt. This item is also very versatile and great as it goes with everything. I love both these pieces and coming in at only £61.00 for both items, it’s a great investment and something that won’t break the bank.
