Latest Fashion Purchases

Saturday, 27 February 2016

Over the past two weeks, I have been on holiday from school and have therefore had a fair amount of free time to go shopping! Therefore, now the holidays are almost over, I thought it would be nice to tell you all about some of the bits and bobs that I have recently picked up...those things being mostly fashion related as I don't feel as though I write enough fashion posts at the moment.


Denim Skirt- since I'm really embracing skirts at the moment, I couldn't resist this lovely denim one from Topshop when I recently went to their ginormous store in Birmingham. It cost £29, and is very different from my other denim skirt as it is has subtle stripes on, and is void of any buttons unlike the other one. I think that this skirt will look lovely in the spring with a white t-shirt (like the one featured in the above photo), and a lighter pair of brogues (also like the brown ones featured in this post).


White T-Shirt- I got this plain t-shirt from New Look to take with me on my holiday in the summer, as I think it will look incredibly cute when paired with patterned shorts or a nice stripy skirt that I have. For £7, I think this top will look lovely with many things, and for such a low price it isn't really an issue if I get sun cream splattered all over it!


Brown Handbag- again, this bag was brought from New Look for the sole purpose of being practical to sling over my shoulder when exploring on my summer holiday. It again cost around £7, but is very sturdy, secure, and has lots of little pockets inside to pop my phone and other bits and bobs in when I'm walking around during the day.


Brown Brogues- I absolutely adore brogues, as I feel you can wear them with so many outfits, whether they be casual or more dressy. This particular pair caught my eye in Sainsburys (would you believe it?), as they are very different from any other brogues I have owned before, and their lighter colour makes them perfect for spring. Upon trying them on, I have to say that they feel very comfy which is fantastic considering I already have many outfits lined up to pair them with!


Black Brogues- as I said, I do love brogues, and although you may think me rather boring for getting two pairs, these are quite different from the pair I just mentioned. I feel like the patent aspect of these ones from Debenhams makes them a little more dressy, and for that reason I am probably going to wear them with some of the more smarter dresses and skirts that I own. Again, these seem very comfy,  and due to them being plain black I am sure they will look good with lots and lots of different outfits. 


Grey Sweatshirt-I noticed this sweatshirt in the sale in Two Seasons (it was £22.50 instead of £55), and couldn't resist it's soft, cosy charms. Although I bought the smallest size they had, it is still quite baggy which makes it perfect for travelling in, especially on a plane journey as it is lovely and warm to snuggle up in!

Well, those are the more fashion-based things that I got over the last two weeks...thankfully my mum helped me out to buy quite a few of them because I am currently saving up for my holiday to California, where there are a hell of a lot of things that I want to buy!

Thank you for reading anyway,  and thank you also for helping me reach 3000 followers on my Twitter (@oliviabethxo)!

  7. That striped denim Topshop skirt will look fabulous styled with the white New Look ribbed t-shirt. I'm sure both outfit pieces will look pretty styled in many other OOTDs in the future too!
