Thanks to boring things like heating bills and food, it’s been quite a long time since a haul post has graced this blog. Ew, who knew the grown up world was so chuffin’ dull? Anywho, when I haven’t been rummaging around behind sofas/in strangers’ pockets looking for spare change, I have managed to sneak in the odd shopping trip this month. And here are a few things I’ve picked up:
Yes yes yes, the co-ord is mine! You may have already seen this in my recent Outfit of the Day post, but it deserves to be featured twice because… well, look at it. Ticking so many trend boxes that it may as well come with it’s own big pen, this is a checked monochrome matching sports luxe dream.
On the same shopping trip I picked up these two tops. I decided I needed a few more basic bits in my wardrobe, and these fit the bill perfectly. The black top has a kind of waffle-knit texture, with structured sleeves giving it quite a slightly more formal slant than your standard black t-shirt. The pale pink is a more standard slouchy cotton, though the embossed pattern adds a touch of interest. Both of these will be great for layering now and flaunting on their own (maybe with something on the bottom half, who knows though) come summer.
Candy Panel Bralet – c/o Elsie and Fred
Has any piece of clothing ever made you long for summer more in your whole entire life? Didn’t think so. This little beauty was sent to me by Elsie and Fred, an independent label that hail from my hometown of Coventry (whaddup). They stock vintage, customised and one-off pieces and are basically cool as cool shit. You can also check out their Twitter @_elsieandfred.
Cami (£6) – Topshop
I’m not sure why this has come out vomit-yellow on camera when it’s in fact a beaut lime green, but that’s the peculiarities of technology. These little £6 camis come in a couple of different colours and are sure to be everywhere this spring/summer. Like on my body, for starters.
This was also featured in aforementioned OOTD post, but I felt like throwing it on the floor and taking another photo anyway.
Let’s groove past the boring black flats (bought to replace my other black flats with have gone walkabouts, possibly having thrown themselves off a building for being too boring)(there’s a strange image…) and focus on the BEAUTIES that are these white sandals. I actually did a little gasp in Primark when I saw them, and definitely nearly threw up with excitement when I saw they were only £14. I think I’ll be going back for the black pair very very soon.
What do you all think of this haul? Have you picked up anything good lately?
