| Croped Cami - Topshop | Midi Skirt - Primark | Mom Jeans - Topshop |
Okay so, saving money never goes down well with me, ever. Although, I'm pretty sure I'm not alone in finding it really hard to resist the likes of topshop and primark? I try to justify my spending with the typical 'I need more winter clothes' quote when in fact, non of my purchases are necessarily winter focused. The usual events of a days shopping trip include an item luring me in from the corner of my eye and then, If I happen to love it, I tend to buy it - regardless of it's season practicality.
I ventured into town a few weekends ago and succumbed to my usual shopping habits which has resulted in this haul.
I have to admit, I'm not a big lover of 'sparkly' items of clothing, I tend to dislike them in fact, but something about this midi skirt drew me in. I'm glad it caught my eye, it felt good to purchase something that I guess you could say was a little out of my comfort zone. Besides, I couldn't just leave it with it's price tag being a mere £8 could I?
I only have one fault with this shimmering item, I'm not a fan of it's thin material - it shows every lump and bump you have, not something I'll be wearing when i'm going out for food, that's for sure!
The topshop mom jeans are something that I have been lusting over for AGES. I originally wanted the light pair of these jeans but annoyingly, topshop didn't have them in my size so I took a gamble with this pair and liked them when I tried them on in the shop. However, I've since decided that I don't like them as much as I thought, or I've changed my mind... I just don't think they suit me all that much. I'm going to return the jeans, I'll either get the lighter wash or a new pair of joni jeans.... hmmm, I'm a bit disappointed about it.
Lastly is this topshop cami, I LOVE these so much, they're only £6 each and two for £10, hard to believe it's topshop really. As I've mentioned before, I've been really loving neon yellows recently so my attraction to this top was obviously no exception.
I think that the primark midi skirt and this cropped cami would make for really lovely outfit... a future ootd post, perhaps?
