A shopping spree and rather dodgy outfit pics...

Against my better judgement (and current clothes ban) I went and did something very naughty. I broke my ban and took full advantage of the 20% discount voucher for New Look I got from last weeks Grazia! It was too good to resist really as I had seen some lovely things in there recently. After a mammoth try on, I managed to whittle down my choices to 3 pieces.

Berry Skirt- £24.99

Mustard Dress- £24.99

Blazer- £34.99
 I also had to pop into Primarche for a little look at the jewellery and managed to pick up these lovely feather earrings for a bargain £1.99. Feathers are everywhere so I thought I would join in the craze, especially as these ones had my favourite turquoise stone on as well!

On another note, I always attempt to do outfit posts but I find it so hard finding the right location/pose/camera to use. I tried doing it in my mirror, on timer and on my laptop but they just always end up looking crap! So many of your blogs have gorgeous outfit posts which make me jealous. I really want to start doing outfit posts as I love looking at them on other blogs! Any advice to help me out? :)


  1. Love the skirt! I have those earrings too! xxx

  2. Wow some great buys! I love the blazer expecially, been trying to find a really nice one that won't break the bank!

    ...I know exactly what you mean about the outfit posts, I have so many ideas of how I want the photos to look...but just can't take them!? So annoying! :P xx

  3. I love all the colours coming in this autumn, lovely buys :) im a new follower :) xx

  4. I'm so glad you broke the ban because all your buys are totally worth it- Sesh the mustard dress and the earrings.

    I'm exactly the same for outfit posts-hence why I've never really posted any I have actually attempted but my friend MO says I need to use a tripod?


  5. wow, amazing blog! def following. :) please have a look at my blog and if you like it, please follow me too.
    have a wonderful day.

  6. love the first photo.
    the skirt is amazing!

    new outfit post-

  7. I love the items you went for- the dress and skirt are gorgeous! It would've been a shame to waste that voucher anyway! I usually get my boyfriend to take outfit photos for me as I don't have a tripod! xo

  8. Totally love the colour blocking! Beautiful finds! I really want to try some of these looks!
