Haul - Charity shops, H&M, Primark + Giveaway Winner :)

Me and Vanese went shopping today and I thought I'd do a haul since I haven't done one in forever!
I really love everything I bought, I think this has been my most successful shopping trip ever!

Levi 501's - £5 - Charity Shop (Similar)
I saw these shorts from across the road so when I walked in I ran over and  then I saw they were in my size and Levi's! I tried them on and I love how high waisted they are, I have some "high waisted" shorts but they aren't very high waisted on me, so I am very happy I found these! I'm thinking of making them cut offs?

Grey Jumper - £3 Charity Shop (similar)
I found this jumper in the mens section and bought it straight away. I'd say it's gutting that I won't be able to wear it until winter but the weather over here is terrible so I'll probably be wearing this next week! I love the polo neck and the softness of it.
Black shoes - £5 - Charity Shop
I found these in the mens section and thought they were nice. This picture does them no justice, but they are very nice! I decided to get them since all mine are all getting old and damaged.
Purse - £3 - Charity Shop // Wooden thing - 75p - Charity Shop
I got this lovely purse for three pounds, my previous ones weren't very coin friendly so I thought this would do the job! And then I got this little wooden thing, I'm going to put all my jewellery in it!
White sunglasses - £2.50 // Blue sunglasses - £1 // Flower Headband - £2.00 // Frilly socks - £1.50 // 
- All Primark.
Primark have the best selection of sunglasses. The weather is getting a bit better now so I think I might be able to actually wear my sunglasses!! I love this headband, it's so nice and I love the way Vanese styled hers with a donut (check it out here) we wanted to get the big flower ones but Primark's ones aren't that nice. I got these socks to go with the black shoes I got, they look lovely together.
Chunky Gold Chain - £5.99 - H&M 
I've been wanting a chunky gold chain for ages now and I've been seeing people purchase theirs from H&M but my H&M doesn't have the best stock, but when I went in today they finally had the necklace! It's going to look so nice with everything, I can't wait to style it!

Sorry this post is so long, I like to talk!

Thanks to everyone who entered my giveaway with Miss Luxe, the winner is Lorna

See you next time, bye!

Summer Wishlist

Summer Wishlist
So it's meant to be summer, but this country has other plans! 

1 - I saw this dress in Patrica's haul and fell head over heels for it. I mean, its on my wish list but I don't think I'd have the balls to wear it now as my body is not in the best shape! I love the leather cuffs and collar, adds such a nice touch to the dress. 

2 - I'm absolutely loving mom jeans, when I saw these on the Topshop website I died. They're high waisted and I think they would look great with a crop top! 

3 - I think everyone has seen these beautiful babies! I love how people style them with frilly ankle socks, I'm literally dying for a pair! These are the cheapest ones I've seen for £25 I think that's more than decent!

4 - I've also been loving these flatform sandals! I know Primark have their own and I really want a pair! It's a crime to wear socks with sandals but they look SO good they've become a big trend and the platform give sandals a big twist the sandals! 

5 - I've been on the hunt for a cheap chunky chain necklace and I found this beaut on eBay for £2! I love these necklaces with anything everything! Especially crop tops!

6 - And lastly, this kimono, I've been wanting a kimono for along and this one is on sale for £15! I think I've fallen in love with the outfit styled with the kimono more than the kimono itself! I love yhe colour, I think it would look great with most things!

Now I walk under a pink sky, lovers float along and pass me by

Jacket - PopCouture // Shirt - Primark // Skirt - Bliss Clothing

I've been so absent from blogging these past few weeks, it's making me sad! I'm just trying to finish all my work now so I can just get out of college, start my summer and blog till I can't blog no more! 

I got this crop top from Primark and I absolutely love it. It was only £4 and fits perfectly. I love the length of it - cropped but long enough for me to tuck into a skirt. But I think I'm only going to buy crop tops with long sleeves on them from now on though because I never wear these no-sleeved tops without putting a massive coat on top. I don't know where to get long sleeved crop tops from though, so if you know where I could get some cheap ones, do tell! 

This beautiful shiny (pleather?) skirt is from Bliss Clothing. I always loved leather look skirts but hated the way most of them crease and you can't even iron them, so when I got this one I was half expecting that to happen, but no! [I'm not sure if that's because this is a shiny skirt in comparison to a leather-look one, but this still looks like a leather skirt] This one doesn't crease at all, it's really great. The quality of it is amazing, I've been wearing it non-stop. It originally came with a belt, but I decided to take it off and fold over the top. I'm a big sucker for skater skirts and this one is definitely worth it - and it's only £7! 
I really want to get another one and maybe D.I.Y it with studs?!

BTW I'm selling my American Apparel Circle Skirt on 
eBay and it ends tomorrow - click here for the link -

Looking.Gd Launch Event

Jumper, Jacket - Charity Shop/ Skirt, Necklace - eBay  

Last weekend I attended the Looking.Gd launch event with Vanese. The launch was to celebrate their website & app (that should be out very soon). The event was in a lovely place, everything was so minimalistic and the space wasn't too big, so it was a great way to get mingling. I met Georgina and Zoe - lovely girls! There was also a roof terrace up top which had a beautiful view of London. Me and Vanese also  assist(ed)(?!) Marina who took street style photos. It was really fun and quite an experience!

 At the event we got told more information about Looking.Gd - For those who haven't heard of Looking.Gd, it's a new fashion and street style website where you can post outfit pictures. I've already posted an outfit to the website and I love how easy it all is to use!
 It's really great for getting inspiration too. You can like each others looks and have a profile. I love the fact you can have your own cover photo. It's like your own personal style diary. I'm definitely going to be putting lots of looks on there. It was a good time, I'm really excited for the app!

I've got a head full of dreams driving me insane

How awesome is this weather?! I wish I lived in America and could go to the beach that would be 5 minutes away, boo! I had an outfit planned for today, but since the sun made an appearance I had a change of  mind and decided to wear this £2.50 crop top from Primark from the kids section aged 12-13. I thought it would be way too small, but crop tops are so tight, so there's no difference to a normal crop top in adult size. I wore it with this skirt that Vanese got from a charity shop last year (which she has now given to me, yay!) I love the colours and the design on it and it's like a midi length it will definitely make an appearance this summer. These shoes were my Grandma's and I just love the way they look. They have little triangle cut outs all around which makes them super awesome. And I got this beautiful Hamsa hand necklace from Primark - it's so nice. I've been wearing it with everything!
(I'm selling an American Apparel Circle skirt on eBay if anyone's interested - link here)

Hope you're all having a good day!
