New In: River Island, New Look, George and Matalan11:50
I've done hardly any shopping for summer over the last couple of months but for some reason over the last week, I have gone a bit shopping crazy. So I thought I'd share with you just some of the things I have bought, as I'm sure there'll be more to come. I must learn to have more self control.
Now I'm not normally a huge fan of River Island but they have some lovely stuff this summer and one of the first things that caught my eye was these shoes. Very surprising as they are way out of my comfort zone being pink, but pastel pink is growing on me this summer (they are a bit lighter than they look in this picture) and I just thought they looked really cute and summery.
One of the things I've had at the top of my wish list for this summer is a full midi skirt. I just think they look so pretty and feminine and you can't help but feel super girly swishing around in one. So when I saw this one for just £18 I had to snap it up. Such a bargain for the quality compared to most I've seen for £30-£40.
Rucksack, £12 - George
I'd been after a nice rucksack for a while but didn't want one too expensive as I mainly want it for when I go out for the day and take the dog with me as it would just make it much easier to carry his water, treats etc. in as well as my things rather than having to take two bags. I love the little daisy print on this one and think it was a bargain for £12.
As for the underwear I think that's pretty self explanatory... it's mint green (my favourite) and it's pretty.
Crochet Collar Blouse, £12 - George
I love little chiffon vests like this in the summer, they're so light and easy to wear and I love the little details, like pretty collars and little bows, that make a simple top so much prettier. I mainly bought these though as I think they'd look really pretty tucked into the white midi skirt I bought from Matalan.
I also really wanted some little cami tops for the summer and these are perfect. They are so light and loose, which is just what you need in hot weather, and they just hang really nicely. Although the straps seem to be really long on the floral one but nothing a couple of stitches won't fix.
Last but not least is my favourite purchase, a lovely mint green dress. I'm sure I've mentioned on here several times that mint green is one of my favourite colours, so when I saw this dress there was no question, I had to have it. It is made from a thick-ish waffle textured material which makes it look more structured and fit really nicely. The nipped in waist and V neck just make it look really flattering.
What have you been buying this summer?
