What I've Been Buying

Topshop / New Look / Matalan / Matalan / Matalan / Dorothy Perkins / 
Primark / Matalan

I decided to show you guys a few things I've been buying the past couple of weeks. I've been trying my very best to not over the top with spending and I actually think I've done quite well. Saying that, only two of these items were in the sale (from Matalan) but that's pretty good for me seeing as I hate shopping the sales.

As you can see there's a major theme to my buying recently... and that's vests! I just love them! The little lime green cropped one is from Topshop and I think I have five of these now in different colours. They're so comfy and easy to wear, and I practically lived in them when I went on holiday the other month. They're £6 each of two for £10 on selected ones, so its a good bargain.

The white cropped tank vest was around £12 from New Look and its so cute. I only just wore this yesterday, but I put it with my Topshop high waisted jeans and it looked really nice. The other two vests were from Matalan and Dorothy Perkins. I think the Matalan one was £12 without my discount, and the Dorothy Perkins one £16. I took a few of this style vest on holiday too and I think they're so easy to wear, plus you can dress them up too.

At the minute I have a little obsession with midi skirts too, and I've probably bought about four in the past few months. I love wearing them on a night out, so I decided to buy the striped one to try in the day too. It was £10 from Matalan, which compared to the £20 I usually spend at River Island and the huge £26 at Topshop is amazing. It's definitely a really good dupe. Another good dupe I bought were the high wasted jeans. I bought some from Topshop about a month ago and I absolutely LOVE them, I've definitely worn them out already. But anyway, I found a pair for £10 in Primark and they're actually just as good, compared to my £40 Topshop ones.

One of my favourite buys recently has been the brown Matalan sandals. I saw them at work months ago and never got round to buying them, so when I spied this pair in the sale I jumped at the chance. They were £7 reduced from £14 and they're super comfy! I'd say a good new couple of weeks of buying!
