What I Wore | New Year, New Look

Last week New Look challenged me and a couple of other bloggers to find a new look for the new year with just £40*! Of course i accpeted the challenge with gusto and hit the shops in search of a new outfit to compliment my new year style…and this is what i found!

Jumper* – £18

Aztec Dress* – £12 (sale)

Skinny Belt* – £1.50 (sale)

Necklace* – £8

TOTAL = £39.50!

I love this aztec print dress with the exposed zips on the front, but there’s no way i’m stepping out into this icy weather without something covering my shoulders! I was looking at a few cosy cardi’s when i spotted this gorgeous jumper instead and knew i had to have it. And the best thing is? It would look gorgeous on it’s own with a pair of skinny jeans on a laid back Sunday afternoon, and it’s super soft and cuddly too. I love a statement necklace and this one compliments the dress perfectly along with the vintage looking mustard yellow skinny belt that would look even cuter wrapped around the dress sans-jumper!

I’ve teamed it with a pair of thermo tights from M&S, my Faith leather boots and a vintage shoulder bag from mumaroo’s wardrobe. I think it’s a really cute look for winter and the dress itself will carry right through to summer too when my new jumper is hung up until next winter. Layering up is a great way to get your money’s worth out of an outfit, and by riffling through the sale rail you can grab yourself a bargain too!

What do you think of this wintery OOTD? Did i spend my £40 wisely?
