This time of year, is the time of year where my bank account really suffers. If its not Christmas presents draining my account, its my obsession with winter clothes. I have a problem when it comes to jumpers especially…I just have no control when it comes to knitwear. I am trying my best to be a good as I can but its not really working out for me.
I have in fact bought a few things recently and I thought that I would share them with you before Blogmas starts….which is tomorrow FYI and I’m so excited!!!
I have got some really lovely goodies to show you in this post and before I go any further, I have to just say I’m really chuffed with the photos in this post!
The other day, me and Sophie took trip to Westfield and they have the most amazing Monki store there. I only went in to have a look and ended up walking out with 3 new bras. Being a girl who is part of the Itty Bitty Titty Committee means I don’t really own bras as such, just bralette’s. I have been struggling for ages to find some nice bralette’s which aren’t too big on the boob area and actually look cute and I’ve finally found some. Ayooooooo. Best part is, these were 3 for 2 in store so I got one free and I can not complain about that.
My next 2 purchases work perfectly as a little outfit and I thought Id share them together. This little velvet slip dress is from New Look and I love it. Its the perfect winter Christmas slip dress and is ideal for layering as well as wearing to all the festivities coming our way. There will be a blog post featuring this dress coming soon, so keep your eyes peeled.
The sparkly top is one that I have been wanting to share with you since I bought it. This little sparkly number is from eBay. Now I’m not usually one for buying clothes on eBay but I so badly wanted a sparkly mesh top and no where sold one! I found this on eBay for £2.53 to be precise and It is exactly what I was looking for. I know I’m not going to be wearing it loads but its amazing for the price. Would highly recommend getting one from eBay if you’re looking for a mesh top. They sell loads of different versions as well so it worth having a little look!
I have been on the hunt for the perfect faux leather skirt for years now and I think I have almost found the one I have been looking for. I have always wanted a leather skirt with zips and buckles, something really edgy and Im in love with this one. Im yet to wear it but thats because Im just gearing myself up for wearing in on a super cold day. I can’t wait to wear it with a cute knitted jumper tucked in, gunna be so cute. This one is from Topshop and for £32 I think you’re onto a winner.
I found this jumper in New Look the other day and I just really liked it for some reason. I tried it on and thought it would make a really good jumper dress or one of those jumpers you could wear with a leather skirt peaking out of the bottom but since I have it home and I have tried it on, I’m not so in love with it. I love the jumper and its a gorge colour but I don’t think it suits me and my body type sadly. Its a reasonable priced jumper but I think It will be going back!
I have been on the hunt for different types of jeans for ages now and I really want to up my jean game as there are so many options out there. I am currently loving the mom jean and found these on ASOS and thought id give them ago. Now these aren’t mom jeans as such, they’re classed as slim fit mom jeans and I would say that is completely true. I bought the denim blue version and I love them so much so I thought i’d get myself the black pair. I like them but I’m not 100% convinced at the moment. I don’t know, theres something about them that I don’t like but I can’t put my finger on it. Im in two minds but I love the idea of the jeans and would 100% recommend you try them if you’re looking for some mom style jeans.
This is an item that I have had for a while but I thought I’d include it as I love it. Sometimes you’ll be wearing a pretty basic outfit and you’re looking for something to jazz it up. A belt is your answer. I often reach for my plain black belt but this one just gives a little bit of something extra to your outfit and goes down that rock chick vibe. I love a bit of rock chick.
I hope you enjoyed having a look through my new purchases and maybe fancy buying something for yourself. Everything is liked below the photos.
I will see you tomorrow for my very first Blogmas post of 2017, I hope you’re ready! See you all tomorrow!
