Latest Purchases #52 – A Few New Bits

Not the catchiest title but a little round-up of some new items that have found their way into my wardrobe over the past few weeks.

First up some new dresses, none of which I really needed but they weren’t too pricy so easily justified!

I recently sent four maxi dresses to the charity shop which were made of that stretchy and slightly clingy material. I have come to accept that this material is just not flattering on me – I much prefer a floatier style and this one ticks the boxes. I love the blue and white china print, which is on trend this season, and the top section of the dress hides a multitude of sins! This was £13 from Primark.

Next, a bargain I found in Primark. This nude-pink lace dress is really flattering and the low back on it will look great with a tan. I picked this up for a fiver!

A treat next from one of my favourite interior stores, Oliver Bonas. I usually just shop for homeware here but recently discovered they have a lovely little range of clothing too. This dress was originally £60 but I picked it up half price…love a bargain!

Trousers now…I bought a couple of pairs from H&M and I could have bought more as I am loving this shop at the moment! I live in my skinny jeans in various shades of denim blue so these dark green ones are a nice change and so comfortable. I noticed these also came in a cute polka dot design too so I may have to invest in those!

My love for patterned trousers continues with these beauties. They are by far the comfiest thing to wear and these ones are just about smart enough to be able to wear to work with a plain top.

Finally, my not-too-sure-about-them purchase. I really like the pattern on these leggings but am not completely sure what to wear them with. I have a couple of longer tops that should work but I think it may require a bit of trial and error!

It was my first day back at work today after half term and to say it was a shock to the system getting up early is an understatement! I even made Ian make me a double espresso to get me through the morning…

However, it feels good to be getting back in to my work routine, starting with my weekly Pilates class tonight to stretch away all of my back-to-work stresses! x
