Just a few lockdown looks......

All affiliate links marked with a *

I'm merely sharing a few of my look this week. I am conducting a little experiment which I will share in another post.......but without further ado here's what I've been wearing. 

The looks are all in chronological order - starting last Saturday when it was positively scorching!

M&S beach dress - S/S19 Similar here*
Birkenstocks Big Buckle Arizona via eBay S/S20 Same here*

A then the weather deteriorated........

Zara trousers - 5+ years old Similar here and here*

Adidas Tracksuit bottoms via Next Directory A/W19 Same here I have a size 12*
Birkenstock Arizona via Shoeaholics S/S19 Similar here*

Some days you miss your fancier clothes an feel like dressy up a little!

H&M sweatshirt S/S20 I have a small*
New Look skirt S/S19 Similar here*

Then it's back to the usual lockdown uniform of a shirt and jeans!

Pepe boyfriend jeans via ASOS S/S19 Try these - I would size up though going by the reviews
Birkenstocks Big Buckle Arizona via eBay S/S20 Same here*

H&M shirt - 5+ years old Similar here*
Gap Original Fit jeans 5+ years old Similar here* (instead of rolling the hem try cuffing them with a turn up)
Birkenstocks Big Buckle Arizona via eBay S/S20 Same here*

Gap linen shirt S/S19 Similar here*
J Brand jeans via T K Maxx S/S19 These look similar and the reviews are good!*
Sandals - details below

My very clever friend @susiesoso has been using her free time very constructively and customising these trekky sandals. Sue sources the sandals and fabric, she's adding a little labour cost to make a donation to the charity of her choice. The are a fraction of the cost of the leopard print Arizona Loves sandals that I bought and loved last year!

They will certainly be adding a bit of interest to my outfits this summer!

On a last note - I used to enjoy trying to find alternatives for the older items/things no longer in stock that I share. Is that something you'd like to see? It is fairly time consuming and in the interests of transparency it would mean I'd start to use affiliate links (I would make a small commission should you click on the link and make a purchase). It's just something I thought I'd test the water with so please do let me know if you'd like me to start doing that again. Since publishing this post there have been requests to link similar items so I've updated this post and marked all affiliate links with a *

Back again soon.

Take care, Michelle x
