Oops I did it again. Another day, another haul. Admittedly though, this is much more clothing based than my last haul, so hopefully that makes it more justifiable. For reference, I went shopping in Guildford this time, so all these items are definitely available in stores there.
The first place I headed to was Primark because I hate buying clothes, then going to Primark last and finding the same thing but cheaper. I picked up a new pack of black tights as I’ve laddered all of mine, and this black and white striped shirt which was £10. It’s a lovely soft material, and is structured enough that it’s easy to dress up, but can be worn casually without it looking too much like work wear. It doesn’t look particularly exciting on the hanger, but trust me it’s an amazing piece to style.
The next place I went to was River Island, where I got this grey crop top for £6. It’s a really useful basic piece that goes really well with everything. It was in a 2 for £10 deal, so I was going to pick up a white one as well, but for some reason the white version came up much shorter and it just didn’t look great.
Next, I went to New Look and bought these black shorts for £14.99. These were quite hard to photograph but if you tilt your screen you should be able to see all the detailing. I thought these would be really good for dressing up with a nice blouse, but the flowy material makes them so so comfortable and I’m very excited to wear these.
After that I headed to H&M. I don’t normally shop in H&M because I can never find anything I like, even though my friends always manage to find loads of amazing things in there. However, this time I was a lot more successful. The first thing I got was this skirt for £14.99. I have a skater skirt in a similar colour which I wear all the time, but I thought it was about time I updated it to a slightly more grown up version. and I like this one a lot. I bought a size up from my usual size because then it sits lower on my waist, and as I’m very tall, this makes the skirt appear a little bit longer.
Next I picked up this bikini, with a lovely lacy trim, which was a bargain at only £3.99 for each piece. It’s a basic triangle string style, and I’m slightly scared about lying by the pool in this considering normally I go for much more concealing styles, but I’m hoping that this year I can finally brave it.
The last item I bought from H&M was these trousers for £12.99, and these are super super comfy. They are cuffed at the ankles with makes them look more stylish and the print is quite simple meaning they are easier to pair with a greater variety of tops. They go really nicely with the grey crop top featured above.
The final item I picked up was the NYX Taupe Blusher. This was £5.50, and I bought it with the points I earned during my big boots haul last week (link here). I’m excited to try this out as it’s meant to be a really nice cool toned contour shade.
And that’s everything! It is somewhat justifiable by the fact that I bought a lot of these clothes for my recent trip to Paris, which is what a lot of my next few posts will be about.
Until next time,
