Best of the Sale #1: River Island

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas, ate lots of food, got what they wanted and drank to much, because I know I did! I had a lovely Christmas, gave all my presents and was spoiled rotten, so I'm a happy girl and I hope you are too! With the end of Christmas Day comes the start of the sales (which are a time when we can pick up a bargain, and who doesn't love that!?), so I thought I would do a short series of posts to pick out my favourite pieces.

I've decided to start with the River Island sale as they always have good markdowns in the sale and I'm loving their jackets this season. So here are my picks!

Biker jacket

leather look panel trousers

green lace skater dress

navy top

red corduroy high waisted shorts

black jonathon aston dot tights

biege studded top

I love a pair of patterned tights and that jacket would look so cool with a faux fur stole. These pieces could take you right through to summer if accessorized right and they are a complete bargain! The studded top tucked into the shorts with ankle boots and a statement necklace, would be an effortless day time look that you could just throw on. Overall I really like the River Island sale, but I hate going into town and the mess it is with everyone pushing and shoving. Literally would rather sit in the house, feet up, with my family and presents.

Anything you really love/hate? What do you think of sales?
