Having just finished second year I've returned to my home town for the summer, and amazingly my home town has a HUGE Topshop! So after finishing work me and one of my best home friends decided to go for shopping and drinks. As usual I not only spent too much money myself, but was also a bad influence on my friend's spending! Considering we only visited 2 shops (why do the shops close at 7 when I finish work at 5?!) its crazy just how much I managed to buy!
I first saw this bag last September and despite desperately wanting it, didn't buy it because of it's quite hefty price tag (£65 is a bit steep for my student budget!). But receiving quite a few Topshop cards for my birthday along with using my student discount to justify my "investment saving" meant that I very quickly and suddenly decided that I had to have the bag, and I am so happy I bought it! It's great quality and the perfect size for me this summer. I also think its grungy but pretty appearance means it makes a great addition to any outfit - whether that's adding to a leather jacket and boots look, or giving a bit of edge to a cute and summery outfit.
I then visited the slightly more affordable New Look and found some great pieces that are slightly different to my usual look. I bought these white jeans on an impulse and am so glad I did, as they're so comfy to wear and really simple to create different outfits around! These patterned trousers are very different to what I'd normally wear but I'm doing a work placement in Sri Lanka this summer and need lightweight, smart and loose clothes to wear so these seemed to fit the bill perfectly.
So midway through writing this post I decided why not just throw in everything I've bought from Topshop in the last month or so, so here are some lovely items I bought earlier (If you grew up in 00s Britain you might get why this feels a bit like I've suddenly started presenting Blue Peter!).
What do you think of these buys? Would you like to see more outfit related posts? And I've love to know what your current favourite Topshop item is!
