What I Bought From Work: My F&F Summer Style Picks

So normally Wednesday is my What I Wore To Work special but today is going to be a bit more of a What I Bought From Work! 

Long story short, due to poor advance planning and some ridiculously long wait-times from Sky there is no TV in the new flat. As I sat here consoling myself with a bit of online shopping, I thought, why not kill two birds with one stone and do a little blog post too?

Today’s bank balance body-slam is courtesy of my employers, F&F. It’s a weird cycle where they pay me and I immediately empty most of my money back into shpoping the site. I know you know what I mean! Very circle of life, like in the Lion King. (we become the grass, and the antelope eat the grass – classic Mufasa speech)

Anyway, enough of my trip back to the 90’s –  I’ve rustled up a little summer style collage to showcase my pics and inspire your retail rush today..

Feast your eyes on this! A bountiful collection of prints, florals and textures – can you believe that you can buy these from ONLY £6?

Let’s take a closer look, shall we? 

Clockwise from top left corner

Dolly Mix Print Shorts £18

I want these cute patterned shorts! The print is bold but the muted colour scheme is perfect for dressing up too.

F&F Watercolour Print Scuba Skater Dress £25

A fab mix between floral meets arty, how beautiful is this watercolour print? It’s a good length for multiple occasions – I love getting good wear out of a bargain buy! A lot of the stuff I’ve bought has been surprisingly great quality too!

F&F Pebble Drawstring Duffle Bucket Bag £15

This bag looks leather-luxe but is less than £20! Also available in grey, it has a pretty pebbled texture and the subtle metal accents give it an expensive touch.

F&F Floral Print Shorts £12 now £6!

These ladylike, loose shorts are almost skirt-like. I’d pair these with a white tee and a cropped blazer – or with a light, cable-knit jumper. And only £6 – whaaaat are you waiting for – go go go and buy here.

F&F Ankle Cuff Sandals £14 now £7

Stringy sandals end up cutting my feet, I’ve accepted that my flat feet need full support by way of a wide band. The problem is getting the balance right between stylish and orthopaedic. This pair look incredibly comfortable, whilst also remaining delicate enough to not overwhelm dainty toes. They’re also in black!

Digital Lily Print Top £14

One of my favourite pieces – this t-shirt is st-un-ning. I could get away with it for work, tucked into a pencil skirt or with my favourite faded jeans on the weekend. I love the colours, they’re so summery but not as washed-out as some pastels can be!

Scallop Edge Cut-Out Two Part Sandals £15 now £10

Finally, la piece de resistance is this pair of nude sandals. The intricate laser cut design makes them look way more expensive than £10. And, here’s my secret – the cut-out makes your feet look seriously slim! I’m a huge fan of a two part shoe! And only £10 – take a closer look here

So what do you think? Which pieces should I buy?! (that’s a trick question obviously, the answer is BUY THEM ALL)
