Ok ok, I know I said in previous hauls that I was trying to save money, but a quick trip to the shops led to me seeing too many nice new bits for summer that I just couldn’t pass up! Let’s take a look at what I picked up….
My first stop was my favourite shop, Penneys! I picked up this gorgeous cardigan for €16, bargain or what? Its a light knit, which isn’t too short, it sits comfortably at the top of my hips when worn, and its so comfy! I’ll be pairing it with one of these white or navy vests that I picked up for €1.90 each, and a pair of jeans and flats for a nice casual daytime look.
Then I spied this cute little red and white striped top. I love the gold detail on the writing, and the cut on the sleeves looks really nice on. I plan on pairing this with some denim shorts or navy leggings in the summer. It cost €6.
The next shop I visited was another favourite of mine, New Look. They were doing some great promotions, so there were alot of brgains to be found. Firstly, I picked up some more vests (you can never have too many vests in summer!). These were reduced from €6.99 to €3 each. I have some nice summer skirts that I picked up in Penneys a while ago that I’ll pair with one of these vests and some cute sandals for daytime wear.
Next I spotted this lightweight blazer. Sadly, the photograph doesn’t do it any justice (truthfully, it looks a bit pyjama-like in it!). Its a beautiful cream blazer with navy vertical stripes, and the material is so light and soft to wear. I plan on wearing this with a navy top and jeans with heels for evening wear, I think it’ll look really good. This was €29.99 but there was a 25% off sticker on it, meaning I picked it up for €22, so I was pretty pleased with myself!
The last item I found in New Look was this gorgeous summer dress. It’s made of pretty lightweight material, so I think it will be perfect for my trip to Spain, or a really hot day in Dublin (as if that will ever happen!). I just love the green colour and floral print, and the shape is really flattering when on. This was only €9.99, great value!
Finally, I popped into H&M, another one of my favourite places to shop! I spotted this skater style black and white striped dress and immediately fell in love! I love how the stripes are different at the sides and the obvious silver zip at the back is a really nice touch. I don’t own any dresses like this so I was really pleased that it looked well on, really flattering. I plan on wearing it with a pair of bright coral heels on my next night out! This was €19.99.
So that’s all I picked up in my little shopping trip. I also paid a visit to Boots and did some damage there, expect my makeup and beauty haul post on all the bits I bought there to be up later this week!
