Highstreet Haul; May 2017

Hello again! Here are a few items I purchased this month from high street stores from several cities in the UK around the time of my birthday earlier this month, which you can read here.

Black Ripped Skinny Jeans- New Look £35.99

‘Ripped Knee Skinny Shaper Jeans’ as they’re called on the website. They come in a variety of styles and colours and are the more premium option. Comparing them with the high waisted disco ‘Hallie’ jeans that I usually go for, I think they keep their colour for longer and the material is slightly thicker so I think these might be my new favourite ‘go-to’ jeans.

Western Belt- River Island £10

White Flare Sleeve Top- H&M £17.99 

I think they have this in more than one colour but I chose the white, which I think will be great for my holidays later in the year and the summer season here in the UK as it is sheer and has a lace insert at the back (which also makes me want to get my tattoo corrected!).


Pink Metallic Biker Jacket- New Look £39.99

Okay so, I love all things metallic at the minute and actually purchased a metallic leather bag whie I was away too, also from New Look, which I unfortatley deleted the photos of, but you can check it out on my instagram if you’re interested. Anyway, the material of this jacket is SO soft and confortable to wear. I purchased a size 14 which is a size above my usual and I always do this with biker jackets as I hate feeling restricted and stuffed- up if you know what I mean! The colour is amazing and actually goes with quite a lot of things that I already have and makes me feel rather summery, which is rare for me as I seem to live in black & white!

Blue and White Striped Shirt- H&M £22.99 (I think)

This shirt actually goes down to my thighs but I specifically purchased this because of the length so that I could tie it in a knot at the front. I like versatile piece because it could be worn for work/ formal occasion as well as doubling up as a geat summer piece when worn like this below. One little downside, the creasing is quite annoying but I think that comes with the territory of being a blousy/shirt type person!




Black Lace-Up Vest- H&M £7.99

Simple, good quality to for the price and goes with anything!



Gingham Top- Primark £12.99 (or there abouts!)

Everyone that asked about this top could not believe that it was from Primark as it has that sort of Top Shop-py sort of feel to it. Very good material for the price and I’m not really too bothered about what is ”on-trend” as I just buy what I like, but this top is literally bang on for this spring/summer. With cold shoulders and a tie front, I think it makes it a little more dressy and could be worn both day and night.


Limited Edition Croc Effect Boots- River Island £38 (above)

Small Heel Caged Sandals- New Look £22.99 (below)

Bag- Stadavarius £7.99 

This bag is literally huge when it is filled and can fit SO much in! New travel bag I’m thinking…


Thanks for reading 🙂
