I really wish I did these posts more often, in fact I think I'll start posting them again because I love a good nosy just as much as the rest of us do.
Last Friday I hopped on the train down to Nottingham to see my bestie, we live 2 hours away so we can't see each other as often as we want, instead we plan in advance which also gives us chance to plan a shopping trip too.
I'm trying to cut back on buying clothes this year, because saving for a house is my number one priority at the moment so that means I can't splurge every payday. instead I treat myself to one or two items which are practical and I know I will get a lot of wear out of.
Firstly was a trip to Primark - I could of spent a fortune in here, I'm loving stripes and slogan t-shirts at the minute and Primark have loads I need.
From left to right - | Black crop top - £2.50 | Gold heart necklace - £1.50 | Blue jeggings - £7.00 | Peep toe shoes - £6.00 | Striped t-shirt bra - £2.50 | Matching underwear - £1.70 | 80 denier black tights - £2.00 |
I bought this crop top because I thought it would be perfect to wear with a high waisted skater skirt come spring & summer, I bought a black and white polka dot one recently in the sale from Glamorous so now I have this crop top to wear with it.
These jeggings are always my go to, I love Primark's jean range, they wash well and last for ages, plus for £7.00 you can buy every single colour.
I always buy these tan peep toe shoes every year too, they always sell out fast, I tried to hunt some down in my local Primark last year and they told me they had been discontinued.
They go with everything and I love the laser cut pattern.
I love these t-shirt bra sets too I find they fit really well, they do some really cute patterns in this range too and for the price you can easily update your underwear drawer.
Tights - well you always need a pair - and I picked this heart necklace up because it was so cute, I'm not really a big fan of gold but I made an exception.
Skater dress - £5.00
They bring these skater dresses out every year too and I always buy them, they are just so practical for every day wear.
I did buy a few more bits from Primark but I ended up taking them back because they didn't fit right.
I'll move along to New Look next, I seem to have bought a lot from here recently, they just seem to sell everything I'm after at the moment.
Red cropped t-shirt - £12.99 - Link
I picked this up because I loved the red colour, its quite summery and bright and I just thought it would go with everything - the material is polyester so it doesn't crease or loose shape.
I always pick tops up made out of polyester - it makes my ironing life easier.
Grey floral print t-shirt - £17.99 - Link
This is one of them tops that tend to look better on than they do on the hanger, its quite long so you could wear it with jeans or over leggings as a dress.
The pink flowers against the grey really works, I don't normally wear grey either.
Basic Striped Long Sleeved Top - £5.99
You can't go wrong with a basic long sleeved top, these are perfect for everyday casual wear and I love that you can throw them on over anything - I think I'll end up buying a few more of these.
Crocodile Texture Ankle Boots - £17.99
I needed these boots as soon as I saw them, I don't normally go for a crocodile texture but it just seems to really work with these grey boots and I've had a few compliments already.
Whenever I do buy a new pair of boots, it is usually New Look I head too because they sell lots of really nice ones.
Scalloped hem t-shirts - £12.99 - Link.
I actually bought these last month but wanted to include them in this post anyway.
I only really paid for one, I ordered them when there was a glitch on the New Look website and it was £15.00 off a £15.00 spend but you had to spend over £20.00 to get free in store delivery, so I got both colours.
Pastels seem to be back again this year and I love the scallop edging on these.
Bambi pajamas - £15.00.
Lastly moving onto Dorothy Perkins, I went into this shop because I had a £10.00 voucher to spend, I don't normally shop in Dorothy Perkins, their stuff is a bit hit and miss and too pricey for me but I did spot these cute Bambi Pajamas in the sale for £15.00, so I got them for £5.00 technically.
I love the bottoms, they have little bambi 's and butterflies on them.
I also bought few non related clothing items.
This hanging heart tea light holder was £1.00 in Poundland - I've hung it in my window - it has a long chain and a hook attached to the top of the heart.
My bestie picked me up these before I visited, she knew how much I love Care Bears - yes I know I'm 26 - so she got these footlet slippers in the Primark sale for £2.00 and this cute hanging butterfly which was £1.50 because well...I absolutely adore butterflies - thank you Rachel.
Finally, with the new Barry M nail polish launch I had to try one of the new quick dry nail polishes, the colour I got is crossed between a grey/lilac - they do dry faster than their other polishes - these are £3.99 each and I also picked up the plumpy top coat for £2.99 which leaves your nails very shiny - a bit like a gel manicure - if anyone wants a review - comment down below.
So that's my most recent haul this year!!
Have you bought any of these items too??
