Sorry I didn’t post last week; I recently restarted painting
so I was working on one of my first pieces of art since secondary
This haul is from a few weeks ago when I booked a couple of
days of work to go home and spend some time with my parents.
My mum and I went into Harrogate for the day and I couldn’t
believe how amazing the shopping was!
The mid-season sales had just started so I managed to get
lots of great bargains.
Gingham Dress – Topshop – £20 (Sale)
Floral Pastel Tunic – Topshop – £10 (Sale)
Cream Top – Topshop – £20 (Sale)
Nude Ballet Flats – Primark – £4
I wanted to buy into the gorgeous gingham trend of SS14,
hence this lovely long sleeved smock from Topshop.
I also adored the floral pastel print of this short sleeved
tunic, which will look fab dressed down with leggings and ballet flats (like the
cute nude ones pictured) for the Spring.
I then purchased an oversized, structured cream tee to pair
with a pencil or mini skirt for smart casual occasions in the new season.
Giraffe and Floral Lunch Boxes – Cath Kidston – £8 for Two
This one’s a bit of a random one but, since I started
working in the Fossil office, I’ve been cling filming my sandwiches for lunch
every day and stuffing them in my handbag. It’s not very hygienic and I always
end up with super squashed sarnies.
When I saw this pair of lunch boxes in Cath Kidston, one
with giraffes and one with flowers, I just knew that they had to be mine! Goodbye,
rubbishy sandwiches – hello fresh yummies!
Additionally, I picked up a few bits for my upcoming holiday
to Alicante with Kane.
Denim printed cami, hot pink floral dress and strappy aztec number
with flipflops that compliment the colour ways in all three pieces? Yes,
Denim Printed Cami – Primark – £5
Hot Pink Floral Dress – Primark -£6
Strappy Aztec Dress – Primark – £8
Ikat Flip Flops – Accessorize – £8
Travel Bottles – Primark – £1
I also got the little travel bottles that Primark have on
sale for a quid; they are the perfect size for a week away and really convenient because you then just simply throw them away!
Sherbet – Wetherby Sweet Shop – £2 for Two
Candy Letters – Wetherby Sweet Shop – £1
The final purchase was some sweeties from Wetherby’s sweet
shop. We stopped off on the way home and I’m so glad that we did! I got some
old school sherbet and candy letters.
I loved them – and the whole day in general!
