Mini clothes haul!

Hello everyone,

I haven't been blogging too much recently due to revising for exams... but I have managed to do quite a bit of shopping (procrastinating and treating myself afterwards). I thought I'd share some of my purchases with you as I love to see what other people buy, it always gives me a little inspiration for the next time I go shopping so hopefully you'll see something you like too!

1. Black cut out dress, H&M, £19.99- A girl can never have too many Little Black Dresses in their wardrobe. I needed wanted a new one to add to my collection but I wanted it to be different to my others. The one I chose from H&M has a lovely classic fit with a long zip at the back and fits just above the knee. I particularly love the cutout diagonal shaped detail around the waist as I think it adds a little character to the average little black dress. This dress is perfect for a night out; I'd pair it with cute black heels and a bold red lip.
2. Striped crop jumper, H&M, £14.99-It's still really cold outside so I thought I'd better buy a few more jumpers.. I don't think the weather is going to improve anytime soon! I love stripey things. This jumper is so cute and so easy to wear, team it with a pair of jeans, a few chunky bracelets and you're good to go. My favourite thing about this jumper is the fit; it's super comfy, cropped and loose fitting- perfect for lazy days.
3. Light Pink Textured Key Hole Back Boxy Top, New Look, £12.99- I love this boxy top from New Look, I'm tempted to buy both the cream and blue one too! What I like most about this is that it is super easy to dress up; the fit looks quite smart with the textured finish, simple round neck and short sleeves and would look lovely with heeled ankle boots and a big statement necklace.
4. Petite cap sleeve dress, Dorothy Perkins, £19.00-I love mint green so I decided I had to own a dress in that colour! This lovely pastel shade is perfect to wear in Spring and I can't wait to wear it once the sun decided to come out. I think it will look really cute with mint green pumps and statement jewelry.
5. Cream sequin jumper,  New Look (sale), £9.99- All things sparkly make me so happy, so I couldn't resist not to buy this jumper! The woolen jumper is cream and covered with lots of iridescent sparkly sequins. This again will be teamed with a pair of jeans for a nice casual outfit for the winter.
6. Luxe Lace hem panel skirt, Dorothy Perkins (sale), £15.00-This possibly might be my favourite thing I bought in January. I got it in the Dorothy Perkins sale for £15 (should have been £28) so it was a good bargain! I don't own any skirts like this, so I'm really excited to wear it. The quality of the fabric feels amazing and I love the lace detailing around the edge of the skirt; I think it looks rather classic and elegant!

I think I need to go on a spending ban for a while (that's so hard when I love dresses!!) as I've treated myself quite a bit this month- well I think it's well deserved after a stressful month of exams and essay writing :p Where's your favourite place to shop? Are you as bad as me at treating yourself after exams?



  1. I'm definitely as bad as you when it comes to shopping. My favourites are Asos and New Look:-) hope your exams and essay's went well. Lovely items, love the black cut out dress x

  2. Wow, I absolutely adore that skirt from Dorothy Perkins! The other items you picked up are really pretty too. Treating yourself during the exams is a must to keep you motivated. Although I think so :)
