Hi lovelies! Another week has flown by with no posts, arggh! I am definitely going to have to start some serious scheduling as my blog has definitely felt very unloved with all the puppy and salon distractions right now! Update, the puppy is on the mend but still not 100% unfortunately! She's getting there bless her but she's just taking a while because she's so teeny tiny! She's definitely getting back to herself a little more with lots of cuddles and tummy tickles so hopefully we'll have our crazy playful puppy back very soon! Anyway, for this post I wanted to share a few bits that I've been buying lately, for a long time I'd felt very uninspired in the fashion department and hadn't bought clothes in a really long time. Maybe the odd skirt or jumper but this time I wanted to get a good few bits to kick-start my Spring wardrobe!
The white off shoulder top, ripped jeans, wedges and small silver necklace are all from Primark. I find Primark to be really hit and miss most of the time but it was a serious miss for me all winter. So I was really excited for the spring/ summer ranges to come in to see if there was anything that took my fancy! I've wanted to try out some ripped knee jeans for ages but wasn't too sure how I'd feel about them, so when I spotted these for just £10 I had to give them a go! I'm pleased to report that I absolutely love them and may even buy another pair as I got these in a size 6 and they fit really nicely now, but Primark jeans can so a little baggy fairly quickly so I'd quite like a backup (or two!) for when that happens! The top is self explanatory, I love the style as it's just a little more interesting than wearing a regular white tee. The only issue I have with this is the material is a little thin so you can see the outline of the top of my jeans when I wear it, but for £3, who can complain?! The white wedges were just £12 and probably my favourite purchase of the little Primark trip. I love smaller, casual heels for wearing day to day and these are just perfect for Spring. I can't wait to wear these with the ripped jeans when the weather finally warms up a bit. The final thing I got from Primark was this cute dainty silver necklace. I love this as it's delicate, but also kind of like a statement necklace, so when you want to keep an outfit simple but still want noticeable jewellery, this it perfect. It was only £1.50, so that's obviously a massive bonus!
From H&M I got this adorable vertical striped skirt, I've seen the horizontal stripes everywhere lately, which I absolutely love but I thought this was quite different so I thought for £12.99 I'd give it a go! It fits really nicely and look fab with a simple t-shirt tucked in, again, it's a fab alternative to a plain black or white bodycon skirt. Also H&M is the other necklace and my only other jewellery purchase of the day. I don't know how well you can see but this is a fairly thick silver chain with rose gold spikes on the bottom. I thought this was fab because it has both metals so you can wear either colour jewellery with it. This was just £3 in the sale, so even better! The striped dress is from Topshop and I absolutely love it. It's a size 6 from the petites section and usually that's good for me as I like my dresses fairly short, but the split at the front of this does come up very short! While it's still 'decent' I think this does require some little shorts underneath. This was £26 which for Topshop I didn't think was too bad so I was pleased with that.
This 'Nothing To Wear' T-shirt was only £7.99 from New Look and I literally had to buy it. I am always complaining about having nothing to wear, so now I can present that fact to the general public and I think that's kind of cool. The good thing about t-shirts like this is that when you really go have bong to wear, a simple tee paired with jeans or tucked into a skirt can be a life saver. Love it! The top/ dress was from a local boutique type shop, but I've seen them everywhere and I know they have similar in River Island. This was only £8.99 which is fab. It's quite odd as it's the length of a dress, but has slits up each side that go up to my waist, so I just wear a plain black bodycon skirt underneath, as it's too long to wear with jeans for me, but I do think if you like to wear long tops, this would look fab with a pair of white ripped skinny jeans. Again, this is just really easy to wear and makes a great casual 'nothing to wear' outfit.
Finally I picked up this beaut from ASOS. It was on sale for only £12.50 which I think is amazing, as it's such fab quality and hangs beautifully. I'm a huge sucker for leopard print and when it's pink, I can't say no. This will be a love it or hate it dress for many people but I bloody love it! It's got a deep v cutout at the back which I think looks gorgeous. It's high enough that you can wear a bra no problem, but I think a black lace bralet peeking out the top would look fab too.
What do you think of my recent purchases? What shops have you been loving for spring fashion?
