Recent Purchases

I have been pretty frugal with my 'clothes money' since coming back to Uni and realising that my loan doesnt stretch as far as it did last year, now that I have a house and have to pay bills and spend my money on serious things rather than fun things! However, I have managed to find some bargains and treated myself to a few items:

Crop Top- Forever 21- About £15
I bought this top in London this week and although the photo doesn't really do it justice, it is a beautiful top and all lacy on the back

Sparkly Blazer- River Island- £15
I snapped this blazer up in the sale a while ago. It looks kind of trashy in the photo but it is so nice and goes with so much more than expected

Cardigan- Forever 21- £20
This is another one I bought in London. I love the Aztec print at the moment and this cardi is so soft and flattering

Hat- Primark- £6
I deliberated over buying this for so long because I always buy hats but never wear them. I am so glad I did buy it though because it dresses up any outfit and looks so glamorous 

T-shirt- Primark- £3
This top is from the mens section. I just cut the sleeves off and made it in to a baggy t-shirt-dress
Hope you are all having a lovely weekend! xx
