A girl can never have too many clothes...

I love nothing more than to see a good haul post or video, beauty or shopping, I love to see them! So I thought I would share a few of my recent purchases with you from River Island, Internacionale, Missguided and Primark and hopefully you like them as much as I do ...

River Island

Coral sheer layered necklace dress - £15 - River Island sale

I saw this dress a few weeks back when it was still full price, I instantly fell in love with the dress but I didn't have time to try it on, nor did I really need the dress. Then a few days ago I was out shopping with my mum, as I realised I didn't have anything to wear to the horse races this weekend and I spotted it in the sale racks at half price, how could I not buy it?! With a little encouragement from my mum I decided to try it on and I fell in love with it a little further which of course led me to the till. The fit is great, structured at the top with a flowing bottom, perfect for my wide hips. The colour is absolutely gorgeous, it compliments my blonde hair perfectly and best of all the detachable necklace allows it to be more versatile.


I have had a love for body con dresses for a while now, and I always admire anyone who has the confidence to wear one. After my recent weight loss I have started to become a little more confident in my clothes and finally gave in to buying this midi dress from Internacionale. The colour makes the dress versatile and the length, including the sleeves, will ensure that I can wear it right through to winter. I have been pairing this with simple sandals and a handbag recently but aim to pair it with ankle boots and a leather jacket come the chilly months.


Another bodycon dress but with a slightly different style, the short sleeves allow me to wear this one more on warmer days, while the colour will ensure it still sees me through to autumn.Originally I didn't like this dress when it came, as the picture online looked more of a red toned purple, whereas the colour is actually very purple indeed but for £5.99 there was no point sending it back, and I am actually starting to warm to the colour. The material is quite thin, so I would't advise wearing any outrageous underwear underneath as you will probably be able to see, (unless of course that's your intention) but I just wear plain black underneath and I don't seem to have a problem.

Clauddie flower headband in peach £3.99 - Missguided.co.uk
(no longer available)

Everywhere I turn, people are wearing floral crowns, but most of them are too daring for me to wear! So I was pretty excited to find this one on the Missguided website, as it's a lot more subtle and easier to wear as the flowers are smaller and peach in colour. This went perfect with my white dress which I wore to my engagement party in the picture above, it would also work really well for the summer festivals teamed with wellies, denim shorts, a white t-shirt and a rain coat.


Green Print tea dress - £8 - Primark

As soon as I saw this tea dress in Primark, I thought it looked so Topshop inspired that I simply couldn't resist it, especially not for the bargainous price of £8! This is structured at the top and floaty on the bottom half, but I would advise going up at least one size, as although their is a side zip, I struggle to lift my arms up in mine as it's a little too structured up top. This works perfectly with sandals for summer and would look great teamed with brogues or chelsea boots come A/W.

Cream bow back blouse - £8 - Primark

You can't really go wrong with a plain cream blouse, especially not one with a cute open bow back like this one! This is a timeless blouse which could be worn in so many ways and for so many different occasions. Team it with a pencil skirt for the office, denim shorts for a festival or tailored pajama pants for an evening meal.

Pink Embellished Blouse - £12 - Primark

I love the simplicity of this blouse, and how the embellished sleeves add a touch of elegance. The fit is quite slouchy so is perfect for a day shopping paired with simple skinny jeans, just pop a pair of heels in your bag to put on if you head out for an evening meal on the way home.
