Saturday: Student Loan Splurge!

So its only quarter past two... and I've already half demolished my student loan...

Here's what I bought :)

Firstly... I BOUGHT JEFFREY CAMPBELL LITA'S :) :) :) I'm so happy.. but I'm trying not to be over-excited  as they haven't arrived yet.. shipping from America so God knows how long that will take.. and I got sooooo confused over what size I am meant to get... so PRAYING that they fit perfectly! I got them in the taupe suede colour and they were under £100 and I got free shipping! result! .... I got them here.

So after my little online adventure at 7:00AM this morning I got myself out of bed and hit Cardiff town. The weather was abysmal (did anyone else have seriously CRAZY thunder and lightening last night?) but has since brightened up. But no matter what the weather... nothing was keeping me from shopping today.

TOPSHOP



Aztec top: £16.00
Shirt:£24.00
Bracelet:£12.50
Necklace:£12.50
Earrings:£7.50
The shirt looks so cute on... Very Geek Chic with the tie. Already have the bracelet in Silver and love it so bought it in gold too :) 

 H&M

Jumpsuit: £19.99
Maxi dress:£12.99
Top:£7.99
Could have spent hundreds in here today... but I somehow whittled it down to just these three items. I love the prints on these items.. and they will be perfect for summer :)

New Look

Top:£6.99
Necklace:£8.00
Earrings£7.00
Socks: 3 for £4.00
Was pretty gutted with the choice in New Look today.. but love the top! Don't really know why I bought these socks :s The necklace is amazing!

Republic

Palazzo Trousers:£29.99
Ring:5.99
Earrings:£3.99
I literally never go in here... as the store in Cardiff was laid out so badly it was hard to shop in, there is a new bigger store now though, so I ventured inside and was pretty impressed with the selection. These trousers have a serious flare. Can't wait to wear these.. 

Boots

£2.99 each

I took advantage of the 3for2 offer.. and got myself these bright summery BarryM nail varnishes.. and also my regular Maybelline Dream Matt mouse foundation.


This is what I wore today... the famous H&M dress... and a scraggy Topshop cardigan. Both necklaces are from New Look (AX Paris I think the brand is called) Sorry for the outfit in the mirror post (again)...

Now I must go and eat before work :/

So exited for my Lita's to arrive eeeeeeekkk :)
