I recently treated myself to a bunch of new clothes and shoes and what not from ASOS, Boohoo and H&M and thought I’d share them with you guys. It is a slightly spring-like haul, I mean it is probably as colourful as I’m going to get..
The main thing I really needed was a pair of shoes. I’ve got a lot of trainers and I could do with some smarter more actual adulting shoes, so got myself these. Don’t get me wrong, I love Vans and Converse, they’re definitely way more comfortable, but sometimes you just need some smart shoes. Plus, I think these are a little bit more spring-like, although they’re still black. I got these from ASOS and they were £22. If you want to check them out you can find them here. I found that they were really true to size and they’re quite cushioned on the soles so they’re quite comfy. I love the lace up thing that they’ve got going on and I also love the little heel with the gold around it.
I decided to get myself a new pair of sunnies. I already have a nice pair that I got last
year, but I decided to get another pair so I could keep one in the car for when I’m driving and get blinded. I went for some big old cat eye ones by Mango from ASOS, and I’m obsessed with them. They were a little more than I’d usually pay for a pair of sunglasses at £16, but they feel really sturdy and I just like them so much that I couldn’t say no.
When I went looking for clothes I didn’t plan to buy pyjamas at all, but I saw these and just couldn’t resist. Again, they’re probably a bit pricey for a pair of pyjamas but just look at them. I’m always a sucker for some nice pyjamas, I like my comfy clothes. I also think that I could probably actually get away with wearing the shorts as actual clothes – they’d be nice to wear on the beach probably. They’re really nice and silky and just generally really comfy to wear in bed. Again, they’re from ASOS, you can find them here.
I also got this seriously pretty top from Boohoo. I absolutely love the mesh bit at the top and the flowers. The sleeves are so so cute too. I’m not usually a cute, flowery top kind of girl but this thing is gorgeous! The only thing I’d say is – make sure you’ve got a white vest top to go underneath as it is seriously quite see-through. Otherwise, the whole top is just so pretty and spring-like. The collar also makes it quite smart so it is ideal forwearing to work. I’m looking forward to wearing it with my new shoes on Monday! It was £20 but Boohoo had 20% off so I got it for £16! If you want to have a look for yourself, here you go.
I’m quite a skirt lover lately – I find them way more comfortable than skinny jeans. I’ve already got a blue denim skirt, but I decided to invest in a black one. It’s basically just your average blacked washed denim skirt, but I’m really pleased with it because ASOS did a tall version of the skirt, which is so so important for lanky old me. Skirts are always miles to short on me because of my mile-long-legs, but this is actually a socially acceptable length. It also has a little bit of fringing along the hem, which is quite nice. It was just £25 from ASOS, so check it out here if you fancy.
Lastly, I got this black strappy top from H&M. It’s not very colourful or spring-like at all, but it’s got this sort-of velvet like texture that’s really shiny, and I love the straps. I’ve actually been wearing it backwards, to be honest, because I like it with the straps at the front (just because the straps are never seen on my back with my hair down). It was just £12, and it’s so easy to stick with anything. I quite like wearing it over the top of a long sleeve plain white top when it isn’t very warm, or with an open checked shirt.
