Clothing and Shoes Haul

Clothing and shoes haul

So the sun has finally decided to come out (a bit) here in the UK, I say this with caution as I don't want to scare it away. Needless to say the sunshine makes me instantly happier and a nicer person to be around. I think my boyfriend would agree with that too! Hehe. I don't know about you, but I've been hanging around, waiting for spring to show up for so long. But now it seems to have arrived all I can think of is - shopping! Over the last week of two I've picked up various bits and bobs to revamp my wardrobe for the warmer months and I figured I'd lump it all together in one big haul post for you! 

I'm not posting these in any order, I tried to group the items in to sort of outfits for the benefit of the photographs. Some of these were purchased when I was at my parent's for Easter, some here in Oxford and some we're from Westfield London. 

Firstly I needed to restock on some of the essentials; I picked up 3 cami tops from Primark in white, grey-marl and charcoal (£1.50 each). I wear camis under almost everything and don't feel the need to pay anything more than Primark prices, when they need replacing so often due to the frequency I wear them.  Secondly I picked up a bog-standard black button cardi with a v-neck line form H&M. This was only £9.99 I think, a staple for every girl's wardrobe! 

Next up was another Primark purchase, I picked up this coral/orangey blousey tank top for only £4! The top fits lovely which was surprise as I didn't even try it on. It's very flattering, and floats nicely on the hips at the front and dips lower at the back. I love the little pocket detail too, although the button on it looks a little cheap, so I have plans to replace it with something a little more bling! The necklace is also a Primark bargain at £3! I'm really loving gold chunky statement pieces at the moment, and this little beaut was right up my alley. The chain is a chunky snake-like chain with 5 large rhinestones. A simple was to add a little glamour and sparkle to any outfit! 

I think my favourite purchase recently has to be these heels. Like seriously- how amazing are these?! They're from SuiteBlanco in Westfield London and we're 30% off! I couldn't resist. The heels are a solid black suede, with a pointed toe and gold toe cap. But honestly the main attraction of these shoes is the bottoms..... leopard print!! I'm in love! Plus they're a really great height for being comfortable all day. 

Jeans are one thing that I find IMPOSSIBLE to find. A good pair of jeans is a rare commodity  especially when you're vertically challenged like myself. But I found these jet black soft skinnys in NEWLOOK, of all places?! Newlook isn't a place where I would normally shop, I don't know why, I just never feel drawn in. But I was so very pleased to discover they do a short leg jean! Why did no one tell me?! I normally by gap jeans, which cost the earth, but I'm delighted that I've now found these beauties for only £19.99 and with student discount... I'll be back for more! 

Whilst in Newlook I also picked up a loose fitting tank in a dusty rose pink, I really loved the cut out detailing of roses too and for only £9.99, I really am a Newlook convert! (Necklace: Same as above). The pretty white cap-sleeved T is from H&M and has beautiful mesh and flower detailing over the chest and arms. A perfect light top for the spring months. 

I don't know what it is, but recently I can't stop buying heels, I picked up these nude wedges in Primark for only £14 and I have hardly taken them off. They're pretty high, but the platform makes them super comfy and easy to walk in. They go with absolutely everything too, day or night, jeans or dress. 

Next up was an bit of a spontaneous purchase on ASOS. Have you seen Breaking dawn part II?! If you haven't, well A) why not? and B) it explains this purchase. In the opening scenes, where you see Bella for the first time in all her vampire glory she's sporting a beautiful blue shift dress. I've seen the movie before, but for some reason, whilst watching it at home over easter I had to have one myself! So I searched all over the internet and settled on this one. The colour is showing a little brighter on camera, but it's a beautiful colbolt blue. It's a light and slightly loose fitting shift dress which I think will look amazing with both heels and sandals in the summer! 

Oh look, another pair of heels. Yes I know, but they're so cute. I picked up these patient nude heels from Primark for only £10! I wore these around London all day yesterday, they're super comfy and elegant too.  The nude bag is also from Primark, around £12 I believe. I love studding, and it's everywhere at the moment paired with the gold metal work makes this bag look a lot more expensive than it actually is! Plus it's a really great size! 

Sadly, the colour of jacket really hasn't shown up well. But it's beautiful - a kind of red toned fuchsia  I'm sure to stand out in the crowd in this one. I love this jacket because of it's versatility, It can be thrown over jean and tee as a jacket, worn with heels and a shirt for more formal events, or used as a blazer over a dress! The jacket is from H&M for about £35 I believe, it has a smart button up front, with a tie to sinch in the waist. The picture shows how I would chose to wear it with my other new purchases! 

As you can see, I have gone a little crazy recently... so well done if you're still reading this incredibly long post! I also have some make up / cosmetic purchases which I picked up along the way, But will put them in a separate post! 

I hope you enjoyed this post. I'd love to hear what you've been buying/ eyeing up recently! Leave me a comment and let me know! 

Much love
