A small haul...

Since starting my new job about a month ago, I have definitely caught the shopping bug and living by the 'treat yo self'' motto. After having to watch the pennies and be sensible, it was time to feed my shopping addition and treat myself to a few new bits and pieces. 

Brandy Melville is probably one of my favorite shops (not the cheapest I have to say) for basics. The cut and fit of their clothing is spot on and although everything is one size, everything seems to fit like a dream.This cream dress is a perfect layering piece for winter that will also look just as nice on its own come summertime. I have already worn this grey Monki vest top to death, great to throw on when you don't know what to wear. Monki is another great place to shop for basic tees, the quality is lovely and pretty reasonably priced. If you're looking to update your jewellery stash then definately check out Forever 21 as you can find some gems in there. 

I have been buying a few other bits and pieces recently so keep your eyes peeled for a part two to this post...maye even a part 3. Oopsy!

What have been your favorite shops recently?

The embroidered top


Embroidery has been everywhere this summer. All for embracing the boho look, I picked up this gorgeous blouse up from Peacocks a few weeks back for only £9! I was pleasantly surprised when I saw it in the sale section as it definately has that Free People feel to it. A great transitional piece to take me into autumn winter, I can already see myself pairing it with chunky boots and warm winter coats as we welcome the colder months, giving a nod to the folk trend. A great accessory to pair with this style top would be a fedora hat..another thing to add to my a/w wishlist :)

As much as I would love for summer to last a little bit longer, it's always around this time each year that the excitement for winter fashion kicks in. It is too early to start coat shopping?
