I know, I know, in my #18for2018 I said I was going to curb my spending but, there’s just been so many gorgeous pieces on the high street at the moment, I just couldn’t resist.
Although I’ve been doing a bit of shopping, I have had a sort through my wardrobe and shoes and trimmed down all the things I no longer wear, or that no longer suit my style. These have all gone off to the local charity shop, I’m hoping someone will get some enjoyment out of them like I did.
So what have I been recently splashing the cash on?
One of my favourite online stores, Hush, has just dropped its spring summer line and OMG so many gorgeous pieces. I snapped up the colourblock pleated skirt and a new pair of denim shorts. Although I do have my eye on some other bits and pieces.
Next up from New Look I bought not one but two blazers (I’ve been taking inspiration from EJ Style!). One plain black and the other is a grey tweed. I’m calling them an investment for spring, it’s on its way, right?!
Finally, I’ve been spending online at Topshop. It’s not normally somewhere I usually shop anymore, purely because I always find myself sending everything back – their sizing always comes up a bit weird on me. But, I bought shoes and a handbag which you can never really go wrong with.
I fell in love with these gorgeous block heel slingbacks, I’ve got a bit of a thing for sling back shoes at the moment with the striped ones I recently bought in Miss Selfridge. I bought these in black but they also come in a burnt orange rust colour which I’m so tempted to order. The second pair are most definitely for spring summer, peep toe flat slingbacks in a beautiful cornflower blue. Topshop always come up trumps when it comes to handbags and accessories and this pink cross body bag is no different. I spotted it on FashionMumblr’s Instagram and had added it to my basket quicker than you can say ‘Shopping’.
So that’s the extent of my recent fashion purchases (I have of course bought a whole heap of homeware for the new extension, but that’s for another day).
Have you been shopping recently? I’d love to know what you’ve snapped up!
