So by some miracle I still had about 90% of my Christmas money left (this is a massive achievement for me!!!). So I decided it was now time for some more spring(y) clothes. There’s only so long you can wear jumpers for, before going mental!…Well for me anyway!
I spent around £100 on a a shirt, a jersey top, a silk vest, some new jeans, and a pair of silver pumps which I’m very excited about. However, last week I bought myself a skirt for Valentines day (got to look after number one haha), so I’ve included that in these pictures. I still have a few hundred pound left from Christmas, but I plan on spending a chunk of that visiting my friend Katy at Easter, and getting very very drunk.
I’ve been stalking this Topshop shirt for a while online, and when I walked into Sunderland Topshop today I couldn’t resist! The jeans are also from Topshop, from the ‘leigh’ range. And although you can’t really see, there’s a few cut outs in them.
In the past I’ve never really been a fan out white jeans, as I swear they make your thighs look about x1000 times bigger. However I’m quite happy with my weight at the minute so I thought sod it!
I think this is a really good crossover season outfit, as I’ll be wearing it with my leather jacket and boots for now, and then switching it up with pumps or sandals when it starts to get warm…if that happens!
I’m really loving the khaki colour at the minute, so when I saw this Topshop top was under £10 with student discount (yes really), I just had to get it. It’s not even a jersey or cheap material, which usually the cheaper tops in Topshop are, it just feels more like a thicker strapped cami.
I’ll be wearing it with my black ripped jeans, and boots or pumps depending on the weather. It’s one of the outfits which you can just shot on for uni without really thinking about it, which is what I need considering I struggle to get out of bed 99% of the time.
The stripey jersey top was £9 with student discount from New Look. Which compared to the similar ones in Topshop, worked out about half the price. Although I’ve got it with the white skirt here, I’ll be more likely wearing it with jeans.
The skirt is another Topshop purhcase…I’ve been going a bit Topshop mad lately! Although it can be styled for a more day time look (left) I think it looks so much nicer dressed up (down).
If you’ve been regularly reading my blog you’ll know how much I’m loving stripes and monochrome lately…but I’ve probably gone a bit OOT. However, all these clothes can be mixed and matched so I don’t feel too guilty!
Lastly is my new pumps (image copyright of Miss Selfridge). I’ve just ordered them offline as I couldn’t be bothered to drive up to the metro centre to go get them.
I love love love the whole holographic thing that’s going out at the minute, so for £22.50 I had to join in on the trend.
Although £22.50 is quite expensive for pumps, I think Miss Selfridge do good quality pumps…far better than Topshop! So least I know they’ll last. Although I’m not really a fan of pointy shoes, I think these are quite cute, so I’ll get over it!
The only thing I’m gutted I didn’t buy, is something camel! I really like the camel colour, but I can’t really find anything I love in that colour. However, I do have a stripy camel Topshop top from when camel was ‘in’ a few years ago, so I’ll definitely be digging that out.
Feel free to leave a comment, and let me know what you think of my choices!
