I'm so pleased with this little shopping trip. You know when you have those days where you try hundreds of things on and ALL of it makes you feel fat/frumpy/just plain wrong. Well I certainly didn't have one of those days. Infact, I had to put quite a few things back that I just couldn't justify. I like to think most of the things I bought will be key pieces in my Autumn/Winter wardrobe. I basically gave in and purchased 4/5 of the items I put on my lust list the other week. H&M is so good at the moment! I'm totally in love with this bag too - it reminds me a little of the Alexander Wang Rocco, except obviously the studs are on the sides rather than the bottom. It might not sound like a lot of money to some of you but I haven't bought a handbag from anywhere other than Primark for a good while so parting with 30 of my hard earned pounds was a little painful but you get what you pay for and the quality and weight feels a lot nicer than Primark. How sad is that - can't wait for the day that designer handbags are the norm. <3
How cute is this hat and gloves? I often look abit daft in hats but I actually think this one suits me. I probably shouldn't say this but I'm quite looking forward to a bit of colder weather. A/W fashion is my favourite - layering, boots and snuggly hats - what's not to love?
And finally, I got some new (old) shorts. I did have about 5 pairs of denim shorts but I've lost some more weight and they're all hanging off me now so a new pair was desperately needed. I've been seeing vintage Levi shorts all over the place at the moment but was searching for the perfect pair. After trying a few pairs on in Ark to no avail, I bought these from a vintage shop in Sheffield but get this - in the changing rooms there were no mirrors! I didn't fancy parading around the shop in my tiny shorts so I just went off how they fitted. I felt like they fitted fine so I bought them and tried them on again at home. It was definitely a risk because the shop didn't do receipts so I couldn't have even returned them but it paid off and I love them. Reckon I'll be wearing them with opaque black tights now until next summer.
Sorry for the rambling - I do love talking about shopping :) Alex and I are off to York for three nights tomorrow so I'll be putting together a few outfits and I might do some OOTD posts.
Hope you're all enjoying the bank holiday weekend.
