FRUIT SUNDAE

 So the sun came out briefly and me and Jacob banged this fruity ensemble together, possibly one of my favourite outfits of all time if I'm honest! I love it because it is "typical jess". I found the shirt on the £1 rail in the RSPCA, if your not into "thrifting" I cannot recommend it enough! Like I said in my previous post my head is stuck firmly on what I want to wear in summer and although fruit print might be "old" , when it comes to summer floral and fruit will always be in fashion! At the moment I'm attempting to streamline my wardrobe via ebay so it is going to take a lot for me to be tempted to buy something new atm.If your a sucker for pretty/ridiculous clothes like me , think of these 3 simple rules when shopping:

1. Can you think of at least 3 ways to style the item with clothes you already have ? (if not your imagination will run wild and you'll soon be in the changing rooms putting together a whole new outfit when you only came in for a top).

2.Is it going to go out of fashion soon ? It is better to buy what suits you instead of being a slave to trends.You'll look back a year later and think "what was I thinking, I wish I could get that money back now! ".

3.Does it fit ? I mean really fit, not "oh I'll just put a waist belt round it,it's in the SALE after all" or "it's fine I'll just breathe in. A proper FIT is everything,don't compromise how you feel in something because if you look uncomfortable it will show.

Hope this helps!
