Summer Clothes Haul

Over the last few weeks I've been on a mission to update my wardrobe with colourful and summery pieces. I've found some really good bargains along the way so I want to share some of my favourite pieces with you.

I knew it was time to throw out my constantly worn black Topshop jeans. They go with everything but they're dull and boring. I desperately needed to spice my trouser choices up so I bought these three pairs for less than £15 each and I'm amazed at the quality! The mint ones aren't quite as good as the others (the fabric is a little see through) but I can't complain for how much I paid! The next step is moving on to patterned jeans!

H&M £14.99, New Look £9.99
This H&M top is so pretty up close, it goes with everything and fits perfectly. The fabric is thick and feels a bit like swimwear (in a good way). It inspired me to find another peplum top... and so I did! I'm not one who normally shops in New Look- I find the shop a horrible place to be in, I never know where to look and and it's all so crammed in. Anyway, I manned up and forced myself to look. I came out with this little peplum. It is a lot more casual than the other but again, it's really comfortable. I'm still not sure if I 'love' it but it's perfect for throwing on when you don't know what else to wear.

New Look £12.99
Whenever I try things on I always like to pick something I wouldn't normally go for... this was that choice. It looks so cute on and I love the pattern. It has subtle pink details matching the neutral shade and grey- it's so versatile and hangs perfectly.

I bought this jacket in neon yellow for my sister's birthday. I loved it but yellow is definitely not my colour- never mind neon yellow! (I'm blonde and fair) When I saw this jacket I knew I had to have it! The colour is gorgeous and it fits like a glove. Its 100% cotton with a 100% polyester lining.

Overall, I think I've managed to add some colour to my wardrobe. I'm forever buying white and cream blouses so it's exciting to experiment a bit. I bought quite a few more pieces but I didn't want to bore you with everything! Forever21 had an amazing selection and is now my go to shop! If you haven't been... make sure you do!

Let me know what you think :)


  1. Thanks for visiting my blog & the lovely comment. I love those colored jeans! I am pretty much obsessed with those this summer. I also really like the pink jacket. :)

    1. You're welcome. Thankyouu, I'm definitely starting to build up a coloured jeans collection. Hopefully I'll venture on to patterned jeans next :) X

  2. Those colored jeans are too cute! I don't own any colored jeans, but I've been thinking about getting some!

    Lovely blog! xx

    Have a nice day!

    1. Once you've bought one pair, you won't stop! Forever21 is brilliant for them (especially for decent prices) but I would make a trip to a store instead of ordering off the internet so you can tell what the quality is like.

      Thankyou :)

  3. Those peplums are so pretty especially the H&M one! Love the jacket too :)

    1. Thankyou, it's definitely one that looks so much better on!
