So as you might of read I was picked to style “The Wide Leg Jean” from ASOS. My golly did it prove hard. My floor has never seen so many clothes thrown onto it. After hours of trying to find the perfect outfit, I finally came across the perfect outfit. Throw on a striped ASOS roll neck and leather jacket and it instantly spoke to me. Teaming it up with my new converse like pumps and it was the perfect outfit. A laid back and casual outfit. Here’s a little video regarding the outfit…
So this month I kinda went a little crazy with buying clothes. With everyone having summer sales and my work giving us a bonus I thought what the hell… why not eh? So this video shows just to the extent of what I have purchased this month……
So I’ve gone a little summer mad this time around for my perfect purchases. I’ve been looking at my wardrobe and thinking how it lacks in colourful items, So I’ve banned myself from purchasing anything dark and instead only getting items of clothing that are white or have colour on them. So let’s start….
My first purchase is my cropped tropical slacks as they are called. Purchased from H&M in the women’s section for a bargain price of £14.99. I went in to H&M to buy a totally different pair of trousers which are featured on my Wish list but I saw these and knew I just needed them. I purchased a size 8 thinking I’d most likely have to return them thinking I was too big for them but actually the size 8 is nearly right. It puckers just a little on the hips but if I went down to a size 6 there would be kinds of things on show! I’ve tried looking for them on the H&M website but I can’t seem to find them. However this amazing print is super summery and I can’t wait to wear them.
My next purchase was just a plain white jumper. Purchased from eBay for a steal of a price of £5.99. I just needed a plain white jumper to go with a few of my outfits I already have. It’s simple and effortless which is why I love it!
Everyone who knows me knows I love a pair of sunglasses and when I saw these white sunglasses on the £1 counter at H&M I couldn’t resist in purchasing them. They’re a simple and fun way to add something extra to my summery outfits without making them look dark.
My next purchase is yet another H&M bargain, from the menswear section this time. H&M have a basics range which is just basic t-shirts, hoodies and jumpers. The price range on these are just amazing, my t-shirt cost me £5.99 which something in Topman would cost around£20. It’s a perfect t-shirt for summer added with a pair of white or black shorts and my white sunglasses. Shop the T-shirt here.
My favourite purchase of them all has to be this t-shirt from Zara. It might of cost £19.99 but it was so worth it. I posted on my Wish List the other day a t-shirt very similar which I wanted for Zara. I went in to purchase that t-shirt and saw this pastel blue one and knew I had to have it. It was the start of my colour injection I need in my summer wardrobe. It’s a soft fabric and it’s a little big but because Zara don’t go down any smaller a small just gives me a little extra for an oversized look. I love the floral pattern with the “For Ever” writing that’s half been missed off. Shop the t-shirt here.
I might have gone a little wild with the amount of clothes I have purchased this month due to going on holiday and also my birthday yesterday (March 19th), I wanted to make sure I had some options with my outfits for when I go to Disneyland and Paris for the day.
So let’s start with the top left hand corner, we have some sunglasses which were a bargain off eBay at £3.99. I have some very similar with tortoiseshell on the frames. I wanted a simple black pair to just go with any outfit.
Moving down we have some peg leg joggers from the women’s section of Marks and Spencers, Limited section. They’re super comfy and they were such a bargain at £12.00 then I got my 20% discount on top taking them down to something like £9.60 which was amazing. Originally £35 I just had to have them. They are something to lounge in and if I’m not having a very fashionable day then these will definitely by my go to trousers.
This next one is another bargain. From eBay for just £27.81. This seasons Zara perforated/hole leather jacket. I wanted this from Zara when it first came out and when I saw it on eBay I had to let the bidding war commence. It’s such a versatile jacket as it’s formal looking yet you can dress it up or down. It’s a lightweight jacket also, so it will be perfect for those summer nights that are on the horizon.
This t-shirt has to be my all time favourite of all time. Also from eBay for just £3,00. I just love the slogan “More issues than Vogue” It’s so funny and eye-catching. It’s perfect to just throw on under a blazer or jacket to give your look an edgy yet sharp look with a bit of humour added to it. I have a Polaroid of me wearing this t-shirt on my birthday evening out with my best friends.
Zara stole my heart on this next purchase. A floral bomber jacket, and can I say a floral bomber jacket done properly. Most of the time they’re not very nice floral, but Zara got it and the colouring on this jacket is beautiful. I’ve wanted for so long and with my Zara gift card I got for my birthday I went and brought it. £39.99 it was but I paid £19.99 due to my gift card. Total bargain!
Mickey mouse are obviously needed as my trip to Disneyland is in 3 days. I’ve already told my friends that I shall be wearing them everyday with my outfits!
I needed a striped jumper for my “Paris look” for when I go to Paris for the day. I thought my roll neck would work but after wearing the outfit I planned to go to Paris with I didn’t like how the blue clashed with the dark camel colour of my trench coat. I saw this jumper on eBay starting bid for 0.99p so I thought I might aswell get it. Originally Topman and £40, I bided and I got another bargain at just £3.00.
Another pair of sunglasses and these are amazing! They have “Cross my heart, hope to die, stick a needle in my eye” around the frames. They’re super oversized which I love with any sunglasses, and they’re just another fun way to add something different to your outfit. Purchased from Choies, which are a very cheap yet super amazing products seller online!
Zara again with this beautiful floral t-shirt. This t-shirt is very similar to the floral bomber I purchased at Zara. It has the floral pattern along the sides and then meets in the middle. £19.99 for this beauty which I think is very reasonable for a printed t-shirt of this quality.
These sandals from Topman have to be one of my favourite buys. Originally priced at £69.00 I purchased them for just £30. Due to having a Topman gift card that hadn’t been used since christmas as well as a 20% off code I found online. I wanted some similar sandals last year which came out around the same time. They’re super comfortable and I can’t wait to get my summer on and wear them!
So for the past few weeks I’ve been trying to find ” Perfect Purchases” for my holiday to Disney. I’ve been trying to buy practical yet fashionable items that’ll go together, and what better way than top shop monochrome.
I needed a new bag to go around Paris with so I love a good satchel, they’re trendy, vintage looking and just easy to use. However I found a Satchel backpack which would look even better with my look for Paris. It might not be real leather but for £24 it’s a real good buy. I brought the bag from Amazon and it came within 2 days which is super fast. It comes with a shoulder strap also in case I ever wanted to wear it as a normal satchel bag. I wish I could alter the straps a little more as the bag hangs a little low for my liking but it’s a beautiful bag and I love it!
Another bag I needed for my holiday was a holdall. ASOS have a wonderful range of holdalls but I needed to have a black one to co-ordinate with my outfit. My ASOS holdall was £35 and is a great size, I’ll definitely be able to get all my gadgets,chargers and bits and pieces in. Again like the satchel bag pack it comes with a shoulder strap in case I get tired of carrying it around and just want to throw it over my shoulder.
A neoprene jumper is something I’ve wanted to a while now. I’ve got a neoprene coat and I’ve always longed to have a neoprene jumper. I love the style and the fit of neoprene, I think it just looks so expensive. I brought my jumper from eBay for £12 however they have stopped doing them now. So I’m so glad that I’ve snapped mine up while it was around.
Something now I’ve never really bothered with and that’s a wallet. But because I’m going on holiday I thought I better buy one to stick all my money and cards in just in case. eBay is a gem if you’re looking for a wallet or purse as they’re so cheap. Mine has lots of space to put cards and notes and even has 2 slots to put change into. For £4 you can’t go wrong really.
My favourite Purchase of the year. My Instax Polaroid. I’ve had so much fun using this. £69 off eBay, it comes in different colours. I’m a plain Jane and wanted a colour that’d go with everything so I went for the white (Kinda wishing I went for the black) I brought the case for it separately which cost an additional £10 but I’d rather it be protected and safe then out in the open. I’ll put some sample pictures in that I’ve taken so far. What I’m doing is taking photographs with my friends and then getting them to sign them but when I go to Disneyland I’m going to take pictures with my favourite Disney characters and then get them to sign them at the bottom of the picture. It’s a cute design and I just love it so much.
I’ve wanted some high-waisted trousers for a while now and I could never find a good place to get any. Along comes ASOS and I find about 20 pairs that I love. But these high-waisted peg leg fitting high-waisted trousers are just what I’ve wanted. They are women’s so I struggled to figure out what size I was, I brought a size 8 but I could have got away with a 6 but they had sold out when I brought them.. They go with everything I put them with and we’re so cheap. I got them on a discount price of £24 when they should have been £30, which is another reason I love them as they’re a bargain.
