    Well I have gone wild for the animal prints – can’t believe how much I can get for £30!! I’ve had two children within a couple of years and have just got back to the gym so some new clothes would certainly help motivate me and make me feel good about my changed shape. This is what I have chosen:

    So gorgeous summer dress plus leggings and crop cardigan for not so summery days plus a zebra print bag and even some animal print pants!

    and 25p left to spare, lol! x

    I had great fun doing this – Tesco have some such lovely things to pick from!

    Here’s what I would go for… (I stayed away from the sale as thought these items were likely to run out!)…,4,shop,catgwomens,womens-dresses,4,shop,catgwomens,womens-footwear,4,shop,catgwomens,womens-accessories

    TOTAL COST… £29.75!!

    I think the loose, floaty dress would be really comfortable and hide those bits I can be a bit worried about. The gold sandals match to the pattern of the dress well, and the floppy hat finishes off the look and would help me cool (and not sunburnt!).

    Hope you like what I created!

    Keep up the great work 🙂

    Hi Becky.

    I love neutral coloured & comfy outfits, but with a little twist of individuality. Tesco’s wide choice provides that opportunity to mix & match at a fab price. I’ve chosen a simple yet stylish outfit that could take me from a busy day into a relaxed evening out, by simply swapping my oversized day bag for the chic studded clutch which compliments the ‘matching’ studded scarf perfectly. Yay 🙂

    Here is my outfit – a girly rock combo. I love it! I have a 4 year old who is currently a lot more trendy than me these days. I am due another baby in March and think this outfit would bring me back up to date and a yummy mummy again! It can be dressed up or down and by changing just one item you can have a whole new look.
    I also had some change too!

    Well that was fun! I’ve chosen

    Cherokee Super skinny jeans Cherokee Super skinny jeans Product code: 5052004429061 Colour: Denim

    I’ve not worn skinny jeans since the 80’s so this would be something new!

    F&F Printed vest top Product code: 5052004619950 Colour: Multi

    This is so pretty, and will cover my bum if I discover skinny jeans make it look huge!

    and to top it all off – a slightly daft hat 😉 I’ve always wanted a trilby, and it’s such a bargain there’s even some change 🙂

    I have chosen a lovely outfit that can be dressed up or down for work or home or even nights out. A definate 3 in 1! After downgrading the leopard print shoes at £9 to pumps for casual wear I have managed to stay within the £30 budget exact.

    Hi Becky!
    What a fab competition! I’m all excited about this, it’s such fun just to be given the excuse to peruse clothing…

    I’ve gone for something super comfy, on trend and with a splash of colour – perfect for blogging around at home, and dashing out on the school run, looking effortlessly stylish..That’s the idea anyway!

    I have some grey harem trousers and they are the most comfortable thing I own. Hope these back ones will be too:

    And we all need a bit of pink in our lives!,4,buylists,featuredproducts,f-and-f-womens

    I’ll grab this on the way out the door if it’s a bit chilly:

    Thanks Becky!

    Great competition idea!

    Well I have today just booked my hols to South of France but as on a budget can’t afford to buy many new items but I sooo want a maxi dress:

    Jersey Maxi Dress £12

    Then to accesorize it up some
    F&F Studded Sandals £7.50

    A studded clutch bag £7.50,4,shop,catgwomens,womens-accessories

    And still £3 change – what a bargain from tescos and a whole oufit!

    I love this competition, I’ve had so much fun creating this outfit! The only thing is I’ve seen so many things I want to buy now. I’ve gone for the sort of thing I would wear out for a couple of drinks with my friends, which I sadly don’t get much of a chance to do anymore. I cant believe I’ve managed to get a whole outfit for £30 & it looks great!

    So difficult to choose! I went for a smart/casual summery day outfit (plus a pretty bra with the remaining £6 because I couldn’t find the right belt!):

    £6 F&F Striped longline top Product code: 5052004437639 Colour: Navy Size: 10

    August 6, 2010 / 2:42 am

    I’ve chosen:

    F&F Cuffed sandals Product code: 5052004514446 Colour: Black Size: 6 £7.50

    F&F Lace vest top Product code: 5052004511261 Colour: Black Size: 16 £ 8.00

    F&F Linen blend cropped trousers Product code: 5052004406642 Colour: White £10.00

    Size: 14 F&F Tribal print scarf Product code: 5052004373067 Colour: Brown Size: One Size £3.75

    Bargain total: £29.25

    It’s coming up to my baby’s first birthday and my hubby’s (28th) shhh! exactly a week between them and I’d love to be a yummy mummy, so I’ve chosen this outfit, which is casual and comfortable but can be glammed up using accessories etc. for an informal meal. I’ve chosen the scarf to use as a belt to give the outfit a splash of originality and uniqueness, just like me. x

    So much choice! I am now back at work and we can wear smart denim but ALL my old jeans now have holes in the knees or bottom area from the amount of time I have spent kneeling or sitting on the floor over the past year so my outfit will be based around a new pair of jeans!
    Cherokee Super Skinny jeans size 10:,4,shop,catgwomens,womens-jeans
    F&F Petite Mutton Sleeve Shirt size 10:,4,buylists,featuredproducts,w-clearance-ss10
    F&F Studded sandal:,4,buylists,featuredproducts,w-clearance-ss10
    I think that will make a nice outift I can wear to work, perfect for the hot tube and running for the train and will also be an outfit I can wear on my days off!

    Thank you!
