School Uniform Look Book. Full Uniform For Under £40.

So Ellie is back and first thing first...UNIFORM..lets hope it all fits!


So this years school uniform shop I managed to pick up for under £40 we got:

2 long sleeve shirts £4 Nutmeg at Morrisons
1 short sleeve shirt £4 George at Asda
1 black skirt £4 Nutmeg at Morrions
1 grey skirt £4 George at Asda
1 pair jersey stretch trousers £4 George at Asda
1 pair bow detail trousers £4 George at Asda
7 pairs socks £4 George at Asda
3 pairs tights £5 George at Asda
Shoes £5 (sale) Aldi

Now Ellie goes through about a million pars of school shoes in a year so I refuse to buy Clarks anymore it just isnt worth it! They just dont last her! From reception to year 3 she had Clarks every year and every half term needed new ones because she had wrecked them! I dont even want to think about how much money was spend on shoes! So now we just get cheap ones end of conversation! She wanted some nice Lelli Kelli shoes for school...erm NO! NO AND NO again!!

Bargain Shoes!

The essentials!

And a range of looks (and poses) depending on the weather and her mood!

3. My last 2 pregnancys were complete surprises! 
4. I pooped giving birth (ohhhh the shame!!!!)
