Today I thought I’d show you a little haul as I’ve been on a couple of shopping trips recently. Some of these items I found in the black Friday sale so I got them for a great price! This winter i wanted to try getting out of my comfort zone with my clothing and go for more bold items which I think I’ve managed to start.
Yellow Mustard Sweater
I was having a look around h&m and this lovely sweater caught my eye, it’s very bold and not something I would usually go for. I decided to try it on and loved it! It’s an oversized fit on the arms and body but slightly cropped as well. I love the kind of baseball sweater vibe you get from it, I definitely think its going to brighten up some of my winter looks!
I think it will look great with a pair of dark navy or black skinny jeans. Another one of my favourite things about this sweater is the zip along the front, I’ve seen this detail in a lots of pieces of clothing recently as its come back into fashion. I think it really adds to the item and completes it.
Glitter Mesh Top
The next thing I purchased from H&M was this glittery mesh top, the photo really doesn’t do this top justice. I have been wanting one of these tops for a long time but never felt I’d be confident enough to wear one. When I saw this one I tried it on and thought it looked really nice, I would pair it with a bralette underneath or maybe a lacy vest top.
It has a round neckline and is a boxy fit so will go well with layering underneath, it could be tucked into jeans or a skirt or left out or tied in a knot. I think this top would be lovely to wear on a christmasy night out.
Leopard Print Skirt
This skirt has to be one of my favourite purchases from this haul, I absolutely love it. As soon as I saw it I picked one up and tried it on, I love the fit of it, it’s quite high-waisted and the zip detail on the front is lovely and very similar to the sweater.
The colour was the what drew me to this item I thought the red was beautiful and the leopard print pattern went with it so well. Animal print is really in fashion right now as you all have probably seen. This skirt is a bit on the short side which is surprising as generally skirts are too long on me (being 5,1) haha but I think it’s passable when wearing black tights and a jumper.
Glittery Crop Top
This top is part of the Stacey Solomon range in Primark, as I’m trying to be more out there with my clothing I tried it on I adored it. I love all of the different rainbow colours that its covered in and the glittery finish makes it great for this time of the year.
I thought that by looking at the top when I tried it on it was going to feel scratchy because of the material, but surprisingly it didn’t to my delight so I decided to buy it. I have worn this top with a pair of black jeans and heeled boots, it helps make any outfit stand out as its so bright.
Pink Checked Skirt
The next shop i went to is Primark, they have so many lovely items in there at the moment! When i saw this skirt I fell I love with it instantly, I’ve worn it so much already. In the winter it’s easy for me to just chuck on a pair of jeans, but I wanted to make the effort to try out different things this year so I’ve bought quite a few skirts this being one of my favourites that i hope to wear a lot over the festive season.
I love the material of this skirt its quite think and chunky which is perfect for the colder weather. I’ve been wearing this skirt with boots a pair of tights and a roll neck jumper. The built-in belt is a great addition to this item which I think adds to the vintage look they were going for with this skirt.
Roll Neck Top
I have been looking for a top like this everywhere but couldn’t find the perfect one. I love this style of top and think that the roll neck is perfect for cold weather as you don’t have to wear a scarf to keep warm. The material of this top isn’t too thick which is what I liked as I thought could wear it underneath pinafore dresses and layer up with cardigans or coats.
This top is ribbed which I also thought made it different to the other tops I had seen that were similar, I think the ribbed texture adds something to the item and makes it look less plain. I love the roll neck on it, there’s not too much material and it’s not too tight around my neck like others I had tried. I found a lot of similar tops but didn’t think the price of them was worth it, this top is definitely worth the price tag.
White Roll Neck Jumper
I found this jumper in Primark and thought it looked stunning, I’ve never owned a white jumper before but after trying it on I had to buy it. This particular jumper is a little oversized which I love as its makes it even cosier. It loo
ks really lovely with everything I’ve paired it with so far (dark blue jeans, the pink checked skirt). As it is oversized it looks really great tucked in at the front and left out at the back.
As it’s got a roll neck its really warm and snug, it’s very loose fitted around the neck which is a bonus. The material is chenille, and is in lots of shops at the moment it has such a soft feel and is so comfortable. This jumper really brightens up my outfit and stands out, I’m really glad I picked it up and will be wearing it a lot throughout the winter.
That’s all for today, let me know in the comments what your favourite item was from this haul!
