Fluted sleeve Bargain Buy top -The Weekend Post

Hi, Everyone! I’m sharing this absolute bargain fluted sleeve top

Let’s hope the sun stays out for us and I hope you all have something lovely planned for the weekend. I’m talking about my bargain finds that I came across this week, plus a couple of little extras for you.

I had to share this bargain T-shirt that I came across…

This double fluted sleeve T-shirt was a bargain find when I shopping in Tesco the other day for an amazing price of just £6 !!  It’s available in a host of colours, Black, Cream, Taupe and this Red that I’m sharing with you. I also got one in Cream too. Rude not to at that price. I’ve been a bit slow on the fluted/flouncy sleeve trend. Not because I don’t like them, purely because it’s hard to find the right length!

The T-shirt is not cotton, it’s like a slinky silky material and feels amazing on. The T-shirt is still available in loads of sizes in store, even though some of these colours are saying sold out online, so you need to get to the store quick before they’re all gone! Take a look here so you can check out the colours.

I’ve paired my T-shirt with my trusty Jeggings from Tu here and you may remember the bag from my post earlier in the year from Lotus. That’s on sale now at £24.00 Bargain! You can find them here the matching sandals are on sale too.

Something I was very proud about this week, was guest posting on the lovely Rachel The Hats blog

I’m talking about “body positivity” over there and have disclosed something I’ve never openly talked about on my own blog. I don’t know why but it just seemed right for the written post. This image below sums a lot of it up…

Ok, not a pretty picture, but a strong message indeed. My daughter put this on her Instagram and I thought it was such a powerful message. Not just for girls but for women of any age! Please do stop by and have a read of the post that I wrote about my journey to becoming body positive over at Rachels blog here

Something else new that I’ve discovered…

frezzy derm skincare


I was kindly gifted this cream from a brand called Frezyderm. It’s aimed at the more mature skin and feels really nice on. I am more interested in the Active Skin Block that they have on the website here Perfect for pairing with those special anti-ageing creams that don’t have SPF added. As I said in the post (You can read it here ) Sometimes the brand doesn’t add SPF because it minimises the effect of the ingredients that are added to work on your skin.


So, if you need an added SPF for your skin care the Frezyderm looks pretty good value for money.

Something for you all to get involved in! Get your sleeves out!

fluted sleeveds

My good friend Ashley from Lazy Daisy Jones has just started a new hashtag on Instagram. So get your sleeves out, add some flowers and #bloomingsleeves !

I hope you can all join me in this! You don’t even have to put your make up on! As I said before, I don’t have many voluminous sleeves, but this little-fluted number will do. I got the Jacket from Zara at a knockdown price from £89.00 to £20.00 My bargain of the summer! I’m sure you will get to see the rest of the jacket at some point. Anyway, I look forward to seeing your post on Instagram.

I’m leaving on that note with my  “Ten Under Twenty”

Even though there are twelve items here! I couldn’t resist adding a couple of extras that I didn’t want to leave out. The sales are coming to an end now. The last dribbles are left, soon to be replaced by new Winter trends.

Have a great weekend Everyone

XO Laurie

    That top looks great – but have to admit the fluted sleeves have passed me by. I think I’d be fiddling with them constantly! Thanks for sharing with #PoCoLo

    I adore the color and sleeve. For me I would prefer a shirt that is just a few inches longer.

    This top is absolutely beautiful! A silky tee does feel amazing on and really faltering!!

    You certainly can’t go wrong with a £6 top! It looks lovely on & the detailing on the sleeves is so cute. Body positivity is such a great thing to promote! Thank you for sharing with us at #BloggerClubUK x

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen sleeves like that but they’re cool. Perfect to cover up imperfections.

    The quote is my favorite part of the post. Wonderful! I love the sleeves on your tee but living in hot Florida, synthetic would kill the deal for me. Need some cotton to survive the heat. I’m glad you finished with flowers. #PoCoLo

  13. August 17, 2017 / 4:21 pm

    Wow I can’t believe that top was only £6 – definitely would have been rude to only buy one colour!

      Thank you, Debbie! I can’t help but be rude during these sales! xx

    Love the top and the fluted sleeves. Such a bargain too! I applaud the powerful message in this post about body confidence lovely. I think that we have to train our inner voices to shout so much louder now in order to drown out the pressures of social media to be unrealistically “perfect”. Great read.

    So much here Laurie. Slinky T material is my favourite. A pretty bargain. The colour is lovely. Looks like it’s flame. I will check out the body image post.

    Such an adorable top – love the way you often team bright colours with white – looks so fresh and fun at the same time.

    Dear Laurie, what a sobering story, which was very courageous of you to tell. Young girls are under even more pressure these days with social media, and is a sad fact. It take courage too to feel confident in your own body, whatever its so-called flaws. You are looking fabulous, and that Tesco top is amazing. I’m quite a fan of fluted sleeves! #bloomingsleeves is such a lovely idea. I’d participate but I’m not (yet) on Instagram. xxx

      Thank you so much for your kind words, Ann. I’m so glad that you took the time to read the post. Shame about the Instagram, you will have to sign up xx

  27. August 12, 2017 / 6:21 pm

    Laurie, you have inspired so many by sharing your story. I hope that you will even share it with younger girls who are going through similar struggles. They need to be encouraged to embrace who God made them and not that we allow other bad habits to control our lives, but that we eat, exercise and be grateful for each and every day we get. I love the tee with the fluted sleeves. It looks amazing on you. As always you are simply and classically beautiful. Thanks for sharing. – Amy

      Thank you so much Amy. I have often thought about getting this message out to the younger girls. If they had to do my diet for a week they would soon be put off. xx

  28. August 12, 2017 / 1:51 pm

    So pretty! I love the color and those sleeves!

    Love that the fluting is high enough on this top so as not to be irritating and such a pretty colour on you too. The bag teams beautifully with it.
    (BTW, the info bit seems to be working now – result !! )
