More Dash Than Cash

If you’re new to Fashion Follows Her I should probably point out this isn’t a blog focused on super scrimping and bargains, you may have made a wrong click somewhere south of The Frugality. Occasionally and mostly by accident, I stumble across a real steal that fits perfectly into the ‘more dash than cash’ category. My latest purchases fall squarely in that category- a new pair of shiny pink bow flats from M&S for the slightly ludicrous price of £3.99 down from £25’s.

M&S flatsPictured with a mix and match bikini from Tesco’s F&F range which is surprising good quality and quite flattering. Ideal for splashing about in the pool trying to tone up my thighs and bum ready for summer (the chlorine eats bikini’s for breakfast, they barely last a season so it’s not worth spending silly money on swimwear). Have you found any great buys recently?

La Petite Anglaise Worldwide Wardrobe Competition

Endless hours spent daydreaming about Paris, mentally constructing the perfect outfit to wander around the iconic capital might just pay off….

La Petite Anglaise has teamed up with Travel Supermarket for their very first Worldwide Wardrobe competition. Five holidays are up for grabs; Thailand, NY, London, Ibiza and Paris. To enter all you need to do is put together an outfit for under £200’s (so you’ll need to be thrifty), inspired by one of the five holiday destinations. Enter all five or just one, it’s really up to you. I’m entering my ‘chic sightseeing ensemble’ for Paris.

Paris

Instantly I remembered this swishy, floral skirt from French Connection, teamed with neon yellow flats- just perfect for sightseeing. My look is inspired by my love for the 1957 film ‘Funny Face’, Audrey Hepburn epitomises Parisian chic. A splash of neon yellow and a flashy bling necklace adds a modern twist to this classic look. I included a large satchel rather than a slim clutch, somewhere to stash the macaroons!

Skirt £65 French Connection, Shoes £100 Belle by Sigerson Morrison, Necklace £10 ASOS, Bag £12.50 F&F, T-shirt £12 Topshop.
