Haul | Is it summer yet?

Monki jumper £8 (sale) | lace bra £12
H&M skull dress £12.99 | grey dress £7.99 | skirt £7.99
New Look dress £14.99
Primark swallow dress £13

Okay, I know I said I'm not quite prepared to part with my winter wardrobe yet but who knows, maybe deep down I actually am. Aha! Anyway, here's a haul that features mostly spring and summer appropriate items. I got a couple of things from Monki, one's a really snuggly oversized jumper and the other's a lace triangle bra which will be perfect underneath loose tops when the weather's nicer. From H&M, I got a couple of dresses and an orange skater skirt. I always get sucked in by this colour, I'm pretty sure I have three things in bright neon orange! Then from New Look, I just got this simple grey speckled dress and at Primark, I picked up this b&w swallow printed dress. Again pretty much everything's monochrome apart from one really bright piece but oh well, baby steps right? x

What I Wore | All Black Night Out

(crop top - Primark, jacket - Dorothy Perkins, treggings and necklace - Topshop, boots - Choies)

It's Friday, woohoo! I love weekends because I can lounge around as much as I want and you can go on nights out without having to worry about the stress of tomorrow. Here's something I put together for a night out with friends sometime ago. Nothing too flashy because it's still pretty cold outside and frankly, a small dress with heels, no matter how pretty, is just gonna give me hypothermia. So I decided to wear some thick high waisted leggings, mine's from Topshop, a crop top, some cut out boots and a black leather-suede jacket. Lastly, a pop of red on the lips to give it a touch of colour. I haven't been going out much recently but I'll be out tonight for a friends birthday. What are you guys up to this weekend? x

Haul | Primark and Topshop

Primark grey dress £8 | printed dress £5 | sunglasses £2.50 each
Topshop jumper £12 | chain necklace £10

More monochrome because that's all I seem to wear nowadays! From Primark I bought two dresses, one in grey with black sleeves and the other is a b&w printed skater dress. I got them because they're really nice and easy to chuck on, especially during lazy days. Two pairs of sunglasses also caught my eye so I decided to get those since they only cost £2.50 each. Then from Topshop I bought this white jumper as well as this matte black chain necklace as I knew they were substantial basics I'd wear all the time. Not a lot but I have a few more hauls lined up which I'll be posting in the next week or so. Anyway, I hope your all having a great week so far! x

What I Wore | It's Cold Outside

(dress - Ark, jacket - Dorothy Perkins, tights, scarf and beanie - Primark, boots - Office)

I feel like it's been cold forever but soon it'll be spring and everything will go back to being nice and warm again. However there's a part of me that just doesn't want it to go away. I just enjoy dressing up in jumpers and wearing beanies, scarves, boots and whatnot. I'm definitely becoming more of a winter dresser, what's happening to me? Aha! Then again, I'll probably change my mind once it's actually sunny. Who knows, eh? For now, I'm gonna  keep cosy and make the most out of layering and wearing my warm clothes. x

Footwear | Strap Sandal

Zara ankle strap sandal £29.99

I haven't worn these in a while but I really can't wait to style them again soon! The weather hasn't been great currently but these will definitely be one of my go-to shoes over Spring and Summer. Although it was already a big trend last year, I think it'll be back. With all the different styles of jeans that have come out in the past few months, I'm sure everyone would be jumping back on that chic jeans-and-strappy-heels trend. Then there's the dresses, skirts, shorts and everything else you can think of. I literally cannot see these not working with any outfit. They're so versatile and they just tie an outfit together so beautifully! x

Haul | Basics from Topshop

Topshop shirt £16 | leggings £20 | jeans £36

Although I like to shop at Primark and H&M for most of my basics, sometimes it's nice to invest in a few pieces from Topshop. Here I got a basic rolled up tee in grey, a pair of black leggings with leather side panels and a pair of Joni jeans in a light stoned wash denim. I don't often shop in Topshop because of how expensive it can be but for the quality it's definitely worth it especially on their basic pieces. How about you, any Topshop favourites? x

What I Wore | A Bit of Tartan

(top - Monki, jacket and beanie - Primark, leggings - Missguided, flats - & Other Stories)

I've mentioned before how I like to dress pretty casually especially when I'm at uni and here's a good example of what I normally put together. It's the typical shirt and leggings pairing which is pretty boring especially with a plain white tee. So to make it more exciting, I wore this tartan-leather jacket from Primark as well as my pointed flats from & Other Stories. Also wore a beanie because my hair was an absolute mess that day! x

Footwear | Julian Black Buckle Creepers

Urban Outfitters 'Deena and Ozzy Julian Black Buckle Creepers' £10 (sale)

More creepers! Okay, I'm not the biggest wearer of creepers but I've grown to like them especially after getting these ones from New Look. And here's another one from Urban Outfitters. It's a size 5 and I'm normally a four but they were only £10 so I had to get them. Oooops! The fit's actually not that bad, loads of room so I don't get any blisters and I can wear thicker socks with them. I have literally worn these so many times! They're so comfortable and easy to wear plus they go with most of my clothes. Eeep! x

Haul | Summer Ready

New Look skater dress £12.99 | crop top £7.99 | strap vests £4.99 each

Not very February appropriate but at least I'm summer ready, right? If you can't tell, these pieces are definitely more for the warmer months but I have a feeling we'll be seeing some snow still before the sun finally decides to show up. However let's not fret because remember that thing called layering? Yep, I'm definitely on that. x
