I'm on a spending ban. Well a clothes spending ban anyway. I've been too irresponsible and I've reached the conclusion that I need some time off. It's an addiction really, so who knows how well this is going to go. So instead of what new stuff I've spent god knows how much money on, here goes with some of my favourite things that I already own.

RUFFLED SKIRTS

I cannot get enough of ruffles, I really can't. From sleeves, collars, hems, shoulders, ears (okay maybe I took it too far). If it's got a ruffle on, I want it to me mine. You get the picture. My beloved H&M skirt obviously has to feature again here. A style that anyone can pull off, it has been completely endorsed by the high-street.

FLARED SLEEVES
Forget flared trousers (well actually, don't, they're fab too), flared sleeves are such a thing now. I feel like Captain Jack Sparrow with the white number, it's just so exciting. It's also the perfect style to layer with jumpers, or under dresses or playsuits. Just with anything, give it a go and it'll definitely surprise you. However I would not recommend going out for dinner in this one...

POM-POM HEMS
These little woollen balls are always in and out of fashion, but in my heart they're always in. These super cool trousers were a Zara sale find, they're classic business-office-professional trousers on top, parrrrdy at the bottom?! Who'd have thought they'd have such an exciting hem. And who'd have thought I'd ever write the phrase 'exciting hem'...

FAUX SUEDE
I guess suede is more of a winter thing, but I fall in and out of love with Primark, but recently I rarely I only buy one item whenever I 'pop in for a quick look'. However, this little faux-suede beauty was all I needed. It's such a cute 60s - and then again 90s - style, it has pockets and best of all it was only £6.

NEW | Monki Cares

Monki has been one of my favourite brands since I discovered it back before it hit the likes of ASOS. The cuts, fabrics and prints are all that perfect mix of simple with interesting - the perfect paradox. So with it already in great standing for me, seeing their new venture Monki Cares pop up recently got me even more excited.

WHAT IS IT?

This new section of their website outlines their ethos for becoming more and more sustainable; an idea that the rest of the fast-fashion industry is almost (don't worry H&M, I haven't forgotten about your Conscious Collection) entirely lacking.

'Monki Cares is about being kind to the world and empowering the people in it'

Their aims are to have only 100% sustainably source cotton by 2020 and to only be using recycled or other sustainably sourced materials by 2030.

To help them along the way, they've launched recycling programs in stores globally. All the favourite Monki denim pieces are made from 100% organic cotton too.
