I'm afraid it's another 'Today I Bought' post yet again! I haven't really dressed up much as I've been at home relaxing so I haven't done many outfit posts for the time being. It's actually really nice to just shove on a pair of jeans with a jumper and not think too much about styling. I plan to have a much busier week next week so hopefully I will get round to posting some soon.
I am ashamed to admit that I did actually purchase all of these items in one day (eek!). I had a major shopping trip to the Bullring yesterday and ended up buying a lot more than I should have. I'm going out this weekend so I was desperately on the hunt for a new outfit or four! I ended up buying a couple of pencil skirts and crop tops which I can switch around to see which combination I like the best. My favourite is the beige knitted American Apparel crop top with the neon lime skirt. I love the two colours paired together, the beige really brings out the brightness of the neon. I also really like the ribbed texture of the skirt and it helps to suck you in more! I plan to wear this outfit with a large statement necklace, my nude Kurt Geiger 'Games' wedges and a pink lip.
I'm off to Marbella this Summer once again and possibly during May Bank Holiday so the bikini shopping has begun. I had some stuff to return to Primark and ended up exchanging them for this bright lime kaftan and floral bikini. I'm not sure if I will really wear the kaftan but I'm a big fan of this colour at the moment and thought it would look nice with a tan. The floral bikini is really lovely and fits perfectly, the gathering on the top reminds me a lot of the bikinis in H&M at the moment. I bit the bullet and also bought my first ever white bikini, fingers crossed it doesn't go see-through! I love the rose gold zip detailing and the textured fabric is a really nice touch.
I'm a huge fan of Zara handbags so picked up an excessive amount whilst shopping in there yesterday. I chose these two envelope style clutches for nights out, purely because they are simplistic and will go with pretty much everything. I also picked up this kind of boxy/ bowling shoulder bag which I've seen in there before in different colour ways but loved this brown, white and black version. I'll use this as a simple day bag during the Summer months as it's fairly small and easy to carry around. The envelope style shoulder bag is a pretty similar colour way but features a neon lime zip which really caught my eye. This is a much flatter satchel shape so gives a more casual look for during the day.
The last bits and bobs are some cheap pieces of jewellery I picked up whilst mooching around H&M, a couple of YSL Arty ring lookalikes which I found on Ebay and my favourite perfume/ fake tan. I love the H&M stacking rings and actually bought them in a few different sizes so I can wear them on different fingers. I was after a real YSL Arty ring but didn't fancy dishing out £180 so found these cheaper alternatives via ebay. They are obviously not as good as the real thing but they will do for now!
