FASHION HAUL FT NEW LOOK & TK MAXX

Hello again beauties,

Today I’ve got my first haul for you, this is some of the things I’ve picked up over the past month or so. I though I’d share with you so you can get some ideas and grab a bargain too 🙂

Clothing

So as you have all probably seen, tartan has fast become one of the biggest trends this season. I’m a little reserved when it comes to my style, but I do like to incorporate the trends where possible. I got this scarf from New Look I think this is just perfect for anyone, like me that wants to incorporate the tartan trend, but isn’t daring enough to go with a bold print dress or leggings 🙂

I’m also wearing this pleather jacket which I recently bought from TK Maxx I love the biker feel to this as well as the shape and length.

 

I also got this gorgeous jacket from New Look. it was one of those HAVE TO HAVE purchases. I just fell in love. i think its a really gorgeous jacket and can really spruce up a plain outfit.

I got this cardigan form Tesco F&F for an absolute bargain of £7. I love the slouched look of this, that gives it that laid back casual vibe. I’ts super soft too 🙂

Its so easy to just throw on a cardigan on those slouchy days but they can also really add to an outfit. I really like this grey one as, even though its quite casual, its also structured and has some shape to it.
 
Its so difficult when you work in an office to find clothes to wear all the time, so when I see an offer at places like Tesco’s I’m like a mad one on the prowl for some cheap and cheerful work dresses. This one was great for me as its long, and on a normal person would probably be a midi dress, but on me its just the appropriate length for the office 🙂 I love the pattern too!!
Finally for clothing I got this shirt, also from F&F. I love the shape of this and will definitely be looking out for more tops with this neckline. I love that this is longer at the front. It makes me feel super comfortable. I love the gold button detailing and the whole fit in general.
That’s all the sophisticated photos for one day haha … we were messing around with my dads camera and these were the best shots I got of the last clothing item in this haul!! I can only offer my apologies for the no make-up and the crazy faces, but I had to include them as I just loved this top. Again, from New Look. I thought this was a lovely and casual and I love wearing it with a nice long necklace on those days I cant really be bothered 🙂 its my safe option …

 

 

Shoes/Boots
Something you will come to learn about me as you read my blog more and more is that I have a really unhealthy obsession with shoes. I am one to really appreciate a good shoe *face palm* sad I know. as I’m getting older I’m starting to embrace my tall frame and have started to venture more into heels as you will see …
These boots, were a recent MUST from TK Maxx. as you probably know, it can be little hit and miss in there, sometimes you could buy the whole shop and other times its just … mehh. on this occasion it was like the angles started to sing and the lights were sparkling around these, there was nothing going to get in the way of me and them. I literally charged towards them like Homer to a doughnut 🙂 these were a bargain at £19.98 and I understand they might not be everyone’s cup of tea but they are just sooo me. I couldn’t find them on there website but I did find them on eBay here
like I’ve said above, I really love to follow the trends but sometimes no matter how hard you try something’s just wont suit you, I have this with the oh so trendy chelsea boot. They just look odd on me. So these being a heeled chelsea boot, they are on trend but also look ‘normal’ on me, if you get my jist!!

Next up and also from F&F are these lovely shoes. I think they are super pretty and are a colour that you don’t see often but surprisingly goes with a lot.

These black wedge court shoes were a replacement to a New Look pair I had worn to death. I’m a bit weird when it comes to heels as I wont wear massive 6 inchers because of my height but find too low heels look funny on me, so these were a must have when I saw them. All be it I wore my first pair once and the puppy chewed them up. but hey, you win some you lose some. fortunately my lovely mom treated me to a new pair as I was so distraught 🙂

These patent black flats were from a recent TK Maxx online order. I didn’t even know they had the facility to order online, so I was sooooo happy when I discovered it. I got these as an add on to get free delivery haha but I really like them and they are perfect for lazy days at the office where I’m not feeling a heel.

I love these tan cut out boots, again from TK Maxx. at £24.99 I thought they were a bargain, as well as being really ‘in’ this autumn with the cut out and gold plate detailing.

These are my FAVORITE purchase this year. These babies were such a bargain from TK Maxx they are Kurt Geiger and were down from £130 to £60. I think they are gorgeous and they are so comfortable.

I got these black court shoes from New Look. these are perfect go to shoes if your working in an office. They go with pretty much anything and the platform makes then really comfy.

Finally these shoes were also from New Look, I think they are a gorgeous style and I love the tan with navy as I’m always adding brown accessories with my navy dresses ahhh I just love them 🙂

So there we have my recent fashion purchases 🙂 I hope you have liked this post and found some inspiration from the things I’ve got for AW13.
