A Store Can Awaken A Lust For Things You Never Even Knew You Needed.


I swore down I would try and save some of my money this month but when having a few hours to waste in the city after work I couldn't resist just having a quick look in the stores, and seeing what was new in for the Autumn. If it hadn't been for the pretty window displays I swear I wouldn't have gone in half of them. Honest!

Spot Shirt - Topshop
Really love this shirt. It's just so me. The colour is really nice and I love the length. As it's slightly fitted it's really flattering on, and looks great when worn with just a simple pair of black jeans or other bottoms. The material isn't sheer which you'd might expect, rather just a nice soft material which is quite thick. Bought for £38 (early birthday gift) which I think is rather ok considering the good quality and the fit. 

Plaid Shirt and Embossed Tee - Primark
Picked these up for super dirt cheap when cutting through Primark. The plaid shirt is bang on trend at the moment and I love how it's fitted and the 3 quarter length sleeves. Looks great when worn under my black pinafore. The embossed t-shirt with grey jersey texture sleeves and back is a simple but nice piece. I've always liked this embossed texture trend that's been floating about so when I saw this tee for a couple of pounds I thought why not. 

Soft Quilted 'Bunny' Jumper - Topshop
Had my eye on the jumper for a while. It must have been the first batch of the A/W arrivals as I remember seeing it sometime in the middle of summer. Set me back £40, quite expensive but it's just so gorgeous. The grey marl colour is really lovely and the quilted bunnies are just really sweet. Lovely soft knit and fits quite well. The drop shoulder design does give a bit of extra room under the arms but I got a smaller size so it didn't look so 'big'. Looking forward to wearing this when the colder weather sets in. 

What do you think of my purchases? I'd love to hear

  13. Oh trust me, I'm a sucker for window displays too. Cath Kidston's are always amazing and tempt me in, but I can't afford anything! Love the shirt, as it's the kind of thing you can wear all year round
