Summer Look for Under £50 (& Passion4Fashion Linkup)

I love a bargain. And i Love a challenge.
So when the good people at Think Money posed the challenge to me: "A Summer Look for £50", well i sure jumped at it.
Being quite the savvy shopper i knew this could be done. I love a bargain and so started my hunt for a full outftit for £50.
With it being summer, i find it a lot easier to dress and look nice for less. First off we're talking of a lot less layers than those cold winter months making my 50 quid outfit much more attainable.
Secondly, at this time of year a great summer dress maketh the outfit, that really should be like some sort of summer proverb( maybe one day when i'm long gone, young people of style will quote me on that,haha!).
Basically all i needed was a fabulous dress, low enough in price to still be able to get shoes and a bag but yet be a show stopper in its own right..
And ladies did i find one. I stopped in House of Fraser, where i could spend my allocated Love to Shop Vouchers and headed straight to the Warehouse section, knowing so far this summer, they had done me well.
Their latest dress most certainly stole my dress lovin' heart. It was instant love. I knew i would be able to dress it up or down, so a summers day with flats (a la above) or paired with some heels and a clutch for night to give a low key smart summer look.
The Warehouse dress is £32.00 so taking up a huge chunk of my budget. But where there's a will there's a way, and so off i trotted to a cheap and cheerful favourite haunt of mine.
New Look is great for that instant hit of on trend goods, when you don't want to spend a great deal.
There i found these cheap and surprisingly comfy T-Bar gold and tan sandals for a whopping £7.99, which since last week i have worn loads, cost per wear will soon be pennies i'm sure.
Then finally finished my look off with a gold clutch bag for just shy of a tenner.
All in all i got my full outfit for £49.98.
Challenge complete. Oh Yes!
And i really really love it. Its another corker of a dress from Warehouse (i told you i'm trouble), but they keeping bringing it and i keep buying it. It can't be helped.
Especially when you can get a whole summer outfit for less than £50.00.
So how d'you think i did?
