Last week I went to the Trafford Centre, initially with the intention to just browse (yeah right, who was I kidding?!) But of course, my good for nothing intentions were soon demolished the moment I set eyes upon those 4 enticing letters…S-A-L-E…
I’ve wanted the monochrome blouse from Zara for a few weeks now, and so when I saw that it had been reduced from £29.99 to £22.99 my bank card magically leaped out of my purse – okay, it’s not a huge saving but every penny counts! Besides, you can’t go wrong with a bit of zebra print – black, white, what’s not to love?
Admittedly the necklace wasn’t in the sale, but was a steal at £6.99. I have a bit of a thing for New Look jewellery, I swear 90% of my necklaces are from there! I bought it to wear with a dress in mind since it’s quite a formal piece. I think it looks a bit too much with this blouse, but I decided to put them together for the purpose of the picture.
As I’ve probably said a million times before, MAC is my all time favourite cosmetics brand. I purchased this lipstick using the ‘Back to MAC’ policy – whereby if you hand in any six empty MAC products, you receive a free lipstick of your choice. The cremesheen lipsticks are my favourite because they don’t dry your lips out easily and instead, leave them feeling moisturised. The shade I chose is called Crosswires, which is a bright, corally pink.
The Topshop shorts had been reduced from £32 to £15. I don’t really wear shorts that often, I tend to reach for a skirt or dress, so this purchase was entirely necessary! I was drawn to the floral design and the highwaisted style, which I find is a lot more flattering than those that sit on the hips. In order to show off the shorts, I paired them with a cropped tee (also from Topshop). However, I didn’t feel entirely comfortable wearing them together so I think I’ll opt for a floaty vest top when I wear them out.
The floral crown is very festival-esque and highly appropriate since I’ll be attending Wireless fest in London next week. I got it for a bargain £5 reduced from £12.50. I think it’s a really good dupe of the Crown & Glory bands because it doesn’t have that cheap sort of look to it!
Hope you like my buys. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
Post to you soon xoxo
