So I went shopping again – my bad! I’m all shopped out for the month now, but I picked up some essentials and much wanted items to give my wardrobe a mini freshen up ready for the Autumn. Here’s what I picked up:
I am so glad I picked up these boots! I’ve been wanting a pair of chelsea boots for over a year and have recently realised I have no pretty shoes, I either have trainers, biker boots or spiked dollies, so it’s nice to have these as a more feminine smart option. They’re made from real leather and I love the contrasting panel. These are fairly wide, which is great cause I have wide feet and I know these will last me for ages as my biker boots are also from River Island and are still going strong almost a year later despite constant wear.
Missguided Mima Black Chiffon Kimono – £14.99
You might recognise this from my August Wishlist. This kimono is so much more beautiful in person. I got it a few weeks ago, but wanted to show it in this haul as it’s such a good staple. It hangs really nicely on and goes with absolutely everything. I really like the folded cuffs and big square sleeves, it’s just so unlike anything else I own and such a steal at that price!
Black Milk Clothing
Tartan Red Skater Skirt – £28 approx.
It is no secret that I adore Black Milk. I think they’re amazing and this was an absolute must-have piece of theirs. I put this on my July Wishlist and am so pleased to own it at last! Again, I don’t think my photo of it on a hanger does it justice. I have a better one on instagram, but you can’t see the full skirt. When I shows it to my mum she gasped and asked if they did a longer version because she wanted one! It’s just gorgeous, flattering and tartan is always a great print for Autumn. I really like that the skirt is slightly longer at the back, so it doesn’t get too hitched up over your bum! My one complaint is that the waist isn’t elasticated (although the skirt is made of nylon so stretchy anyway), so I originally bought a M thinking it would stretch as I was half-way between the sizing chart, but the L actually fits me perfectly. If it had elastic I think the M would have been fine.
Black Crop Jumper with Crochet Trim – £7.99
I bought this in store today to go with my high waisted skater skirts, but can’t find it on the website. H&M never seem to have the same stock in store and online, which is a shame. I really like the detailing on the hem of this, I think it just makes it a little bit special and at £7.99 I just had to have it. It’s really comfy and I don’t own any black cropped jumpers so this has filled that little void in my closet. It’s not thick, but is perfect for layering over a vest top.
Black Zip Back Vest – £7.99
This might look like a bit of a boring item, but I do think New Look are great for staple pieces like this. The cut is really nice, as it doesn’t cling and looks really nice over a pair of jeans or leggings. The fabric is sheer as you can see in the picture, but not too much. I really like the zip detailing on the back of this. Definitely an every day piece I will get a lot of wear out of.
That’s everything I’ve picked up recently, apart from some socks, but I figured nobody cares about that! Haha, see anything you like? What have you been buying? Let me know!
