1. Stripe Tee | Glassons (you can NEVER have too many stripes in your wardrobe in my book!)

2. Scoop Tee in white | Cotton On (basic piece that is a good fit and super cheap – my advice is buy more than one as they will lose their shape quicker than a more expensive tee)

3. Brando Freelove Pencil Skirt | One Teaspoon (love the colour, the distressed look and the fit)

4. Kurt Geiger ‘Madison’ Espadrilles | Kurt Geiger (because I can’t afford the Chanel espadrilles that I covet!)

5. Citizens of Humanity ‘Premium Vintage Corey’ jeans | Revolve Clothing (the perfect denim wash, amount of distressing and slouch)

6. G-Star ‘Steele Collar Knit’ | Revolve Clothing (love a good oversized knit and this one is currently a BARGAIN)

7. Keepsake ‘Almost Over’ Short | Zip Me Up (I’m having a love affair with lace at the moment)

I wonder if there is a group for online shopping addicts? If so I’m not quite at the point of needing to attend meetings, but I must admit I have the bug pretty bad!!!

As I am currently not working, (ha! not working!!! I am up earlier than ever before and I totally consider the role of being a mum a serious full time job – it is hard work!) I have the internet at my fingertips all day and when Axel is napping I search the web far and wide looking for things that are at single salary worthy prices.

I am a big believer in mixing and matching different price points – shoes and handbags last a life time if you buy quality pieces and look after them, anything that is a little ‘trendy’ and won’t need to go the distance (i.e. past the current season) then go for a more budget friendly option.

So Jemma, I can definitely help you by listing a few of my favourite online shopping destinations that offer funky threads at a reasonable price. The following retailers are saved in my bookmarks and get plenty of hits!

Revolve Clothing – I always shop their sale section as being a Northern Hemisphere retailer their end of season sales are perfect for our up and coming season. Plus they do free shipping over $100 (USD).

Asos – You would just about have to have been living under a rock to not know about mega online retailer Asos. Free shipping no matter how little your purchase – Ah-MAzing!!!

Seed Heritage – Always on trend, LOVE their shoes, and they also have fab kids wear.

Urban Outfitters – The perfect place for finding what is ‘trendy’ at a reasonable price.

Onceit – Sign up to get on trend pieces at insider prices.

Cotton On / Glassons / Dotti – The places to go to get basic staples.

SurfStitch – I’ve only recently re-discovered how good shopping at a ‘surf’ store can be! Their sale section is definitely worth checking out, they regularly have online discount codes to give you further reductions, and they ship super fast; my purchases normally arrive from Australia within two working days.

Witchery – Anyone who has followed my blog for a while now will know that I am a fan of Witchery – especially their shoes. Sign up for their customer loyalty programme to receive fantastic rewards (it helps if your lovely mum buys there too and puts her purchases on your customer loyalty card! Thanks mum! x)

Tomorrow I’ll bring you a new monthly feature with my top ten picks for your wardrobe from around the web. These are the pieces that I would be getting (if I could!) to add to my wardrobe that would not only look great for that month, but would be on-going for the season (and seasons) ahead. I’ll be making sure I include options that reiterate price point mixing, definitely the way forward people!
