payday haul

Coat: H&M - Jeans: Topshop - Shoes: Zara - Bag: Whistles
Shirt and Jeans: Topshop - Jumper - Zara - Striped Top: Whistles
Top: Whistles - £65.00
I love payday. It's my favourite day because it means I can raid all my favourite shops and purchase whatever the hell I like! My shopping spree was rather successful for once and I most certainly got carried away. I did purchase more than what is shown above! 

My favourite piece from my trip is most definitely the Izzy Double Face Striped Top from Whistles! I went into the store a number of times to try it on as I thought that £65.00 for a striped top is slightly more than I had intended to pay but I could not resist. I don't own many patterned/stripey clothes so it's definitely unlike anything else I own. I wore this the other day with leather trousers and my white Topshop coat and finished the look off with MAC's Ruby Woo lipstick and my hair pulled back into a low ponytail!

What have you guys purchased this payday?!

noir, noir, noir.

Trousers and Bag: H&M - Shoes: Topshop
Blazer: Cameo Rose at New Look - Jumper: Zara
Hat and Bag: H&M - Blazer: Cameo Rose at New Look - Cami: Topshop
I've had another little spree this weekend. I should not be allowed to have a bank account at the weekends! I managed to pick up a new handbag which I've been lusting over for a while. I remember seeing it in blue and falling in love however, I opted for black as I don't tend to wear colour that often!

I love the long-line blazers that are in Topshop at the moment although at £75.00, I just could not justify purchasing one! I was actually in New Look which is a store I never tend to visit when I noticed this long-line blazer in the concession section. At £25.00, it would have been rude not to purchase! I just wish that they had done it in white aswell. 

My last purchase was another ribbed knit from Zara! I actually own this in navy already and will blog about that later. They are so nice and at £20.00, a complete and utter bargain. They come in a range of colours including a rose pink. I've attempted to spruce up with wardrobe with something other than black and white this summer however, I am failing slightly!

black and gold.

Hat and Rings: H&M - Sunglasses and Shirt: Topshop - Watch: Michael Kors - Perfume: Tom Ford - Bag: Whistles 
If you know me, you'll know that I am a lover of all things black and all things gold. I've never been the kind of girl who likes silver, I even made sure my phone was gold to co-ordinate with my outfits. Anyhow, the weather was slightly perkier than usual this weekend so I managed to get some wear out of my new sunglasses and my beloved floppy brim hat. How nice is the little leaf detailing? I purchased the hat some time ago now and felt silly wearing it at first but it's definitely grown on me. The rings were a bargain buy that I picked up for £3.99. I know I'll end up losing them all one night though!

I've been searching high and low for a boyfriend fit shirt ever since I saw a photograph of Mary-Kate in one with black trousers. Men's shirts are great but they drowned me slightly! I found this beaut in Topshop, the fabric is crinkled and it's oversized enough to give the impression it is men's! I think it was £30.00 so it was a bargain! I teamed it with some silky/satin-y straight leg trousers from H&M and my trusty Topshop croc flats!
