My Style | The ultimate boho bargain top


Followers of my Instagram will know that I’m quite partial to a bargain. I LOVE finding little gems in TK Maxx for example, and I pick up a lot of bits for the kids in supermarkets, along with the weekly shop.

In short, I am not remotely snobby about clothes and think if something works for you, just buy it, whether it’s £2 or £200.

With all that in mind, please meet my new, embroidered, Mexican peasant-inspired top.

It’s a gorgeous tomato red, it fits and washes really nicely, costs just £18 and it’s from … SAINSBURYS.

The top isn’t online, but hot-foot it down to your local superstore. The style number is 127908999 and it’s called ‘Flamenco.’

I’ve teamed mine with leather as I’m not fully on board with suede this season and I like the mix of ‘pretty’ with tougher leather. I’ve worn heels for this picture, but would also wear with my Topshop ‘FIG’ gladiators.

Earring hoops for that J-Lo vibe are totally optional!


I’m heading away on a very exciting trip next week so won’t be posting, but follow me on Instagram so you can what I get up to! I’ll be back on Monday 22nd June.

    This top is really pretty. Looks great with your skirt but would be fab with some denim shorts and converse too. Lorraine x

      I’ve just done some online shopping in the Mango sale and they have some great tops a bit similar to this at very cheap prices as well.
