Lots of new purchases to share with you that I've accumulated over the past few weeks! I've already featured a couple of these items in my outfit posts but thought I would include them anyway. I mentioned recently how much I am loving Topshop's Spring/ Summer collections and have purchased a fair few items from there. First up is this gorgeous nude peplum jacket which is the perfect Spring jacket, really easy to wear and flattering on the figure. I wore it in a recent outfit post over a smart blouse with jeans but this could really be worn in so many ways. I also bought this pink pastel knitted vest which I also have in mint green. I love the simplicity of this top and the pastel shades are adorable. I tend to pair this with a pair of high-waisted jeans or a little skater skirt. You also many have noticed my new obsession with the Joni jeans which I have now bought in 3 colours - black, pale pink and vintage blue. I love the high-waisted shape and the fabric is stretchy so they are extra comfortable. I have been living in these over the past few weeks and have no intention of taking them off anytime soon!

I've bought a few dresses recently including this tunic style dress from the H&M Icons Collection which is currently in stores. This is the dress modelled by Daphne in the advertisements and it took a while to hunt down as I guess it's been quite popular. I really like the embroidery across the necklace and the simple loose fitting shape will be great when the weather warms up. I also bought this cold-shoulder Savannah Motel Rocks dress which had sold out on Asos so I purchased it from the actually website. It was 25% off which was a bonus so I think it came out to around £28 but don't quote me on that. Again, I love the simple shape and think I will wear this on Saturday night with a statement necklace, bright lip and chunky heels.

Shoes have always been my weakness and over the past few weeks my obsession has only got worse. First up are these white leather platform trainers which I featured in my last outfit post. I love the chunky heel and they are really fitting with the current sports luxe trend for this season. I also bit the bullet and purchased my first pair of Nike Air Max in this gorgeous hot punch pink/ orange shade. They are extremely bright in person but I lot a bit of neon during the Summer. I also bought these studded Kurt Geiger sandals which are more for holiday wear but I guess when the weather brightens up they will be nice with a pair of jeans.

Lastly, I bought these statement necklaces by H&M which are fairly simplistic compared to my usual choice of necklace but will be handy for layering up. I also bought the new John Frieda Luxurious Volume shampoo and conditioner in the hope of giving my fine locks some va-va-voom and stocked up on the good old fake tan! I also get asked quite frequently which false nails I used so for those asking, I tend to use Kiss nails which are available from Boots. I usually buy the 'short square' style but I fancied a change and went for the oval shape which I may file down into a bit more of a point. 


  1. I love the colour of those jeans - perfect for Spring!

  2. I would love to buy a joni jeans in the next time too but i can only order it, do you know if they usually fit normal, larger or smaller? :)
