This is my last super shopping trip for a while, I promise! My bank account is completely dry so I am forcing myself to stay away from any form of shops from now on. These are the bits and pieces I picked up from the Bullring yesterday, I didn't plan to buy much but I'd been kept away for so long! I've wanted a camouflage jacket for ages to pair with ripped denim shorts and this Topshop one fitted the bill perfectly. I found a really similar one in Urban Outfitters for the exact same price but I always rely on Topshop! I never bother with the Primark in Birmingham as it's always so packed but I ventured in with my friend and found this really nice slouched knitted cardigan containing different threads of neutral tones, right up my street. It was priced at £14 which is quite expensive for Primark but considering I would usually dish out £30 for one in Topshop it was acceptable. I also picked up this low armhole denim shirt and cropped 'giants' t-shirt from Urban Outfitters within their Urban Renewal section. I'm going back to Marbella on August 7th and found this crochet beach cover up which I want to wear on a night out over there with maybe a bandeau dress underneath or a leotard with some shorts over the top. 

I'm not sure if I'm a massive fan of these collar tips I picked up, I haven't tried them on yet and they are attached through a pin fastening which I'm scared will ruin my collars. Might consider returning these depending on how they turn out once I give them a trial run. I'm trying to prolong my tan for as long as possible before I go back and my friend recommended this Dover Summer Glow nourishing lotion, has anybody tried it? I'm off for my first Nando's in a month which is one of the only things I have missed about the UK! Sad, I know haha.
