Confession time? I am the biggest shopaholic ever and with payday being last week a haul was bound to be on the cards soon. Now I actually bought quite a lot more than I planned but I didn’t like the look of some stuff when I got it home and it didn’t fit me yada yada yada so yeah this is everything I have decided to keep out of my spree. I’m one of those people that firmly believes retail therapy solves everything and I’ve had such a stressful time with final year and a break up and working crazy hours, I wanted to treat myself to some new spring wardrobe essentials. Stuff that I can start incorporating into my wardrobe now and will last right through into summer! Hopefully I’ll be styling up what I bought in some new ootd posts so keep an eye out for those!
First up is this gorgeous mini tote bag from New Look. I actually saw this on instagram somewhere and decided it was the perfect bag for spring – perfect colour, perfect size, perfect in every single way. Next up is this gorgeous crossover top from Zara. Now I fully admit I have had my eye on this since I saw my favourite fashion blogger Sarah style this in a post a few weeks ago and I just had to have it, the colour is beautiful, I love the cut out detail and I can’t wait to wear this when the weather warms up. Next up the famous donut talk to me River Island top which has been on my wish list since it hit the stores. I was devastated when this sold out in stores and online and then one of my amazing friends sent me the link when it appeared on ASOS and that was it, it was in my basket quicker than you can even say ASOS!
The leggings were a total impulse buy and I’m so glad I decide to get them. I am loving the gingham trend and Topshop have no shortage of different styles, but these are just so affordable and perfect for Spring and look how cure they are! I have barely taken them off since I bought them…literally! Finally, no haul would be complete without a few cheeky Primark purchases. There’s a lot of stuff I’ve seen people buying in Primark that my local store simply doesn’t have so I just picked up some cute pastel socks, some new sunglasses and a gingham tie bow thing to try out in my hair.
