Rosegal clothes haul – embroidery galore

Rosegal clothes haul – embroidery galore

I was recently lucky enough to be sent some gorgeous summer-y clothes from the amazing Rosegal! I’m so in love with them, of course I’d have to share them.

 

Firstly I was sent this gorgeous rose embroidered denim skirt. I’m obsessed with anything embroidered at the moment, so this was right up my street. I’m also a big denim skirt lover, I’ve already got several, and this was a welcomed addition to the collection.

The skirt is lovely quality, fits just right when on and is perfect for the summer. It’s just £16 at Rosegal, which is pretty cheap too. I’d definitely give it a ten out of ten.

If you’re interested you can see the skirt here.

 

I was also sent this beautiful tropical black and white bikini. Rosegal have so so many bikinis on their website, if you’re still searching for that perfect swimsuit you should definitely go check them our as their choice is amazing.

I particularly love the palm tree print on the top, I can’t wait to wear it when I go on holiday! The scalloped edge of the bikini bottoms is also really cute, and I love the fact that they’re high waisted.

At just £15, it’s an absolute bargain too! If you’d like to look for yourself click here.

 

Finally, I was sent this oversized white shirt with yet more embroidery. I love the simple little rose that’s embroidered on the pocket, it’s simple but so pretty. I’m pretty big on oversized shirts – in fact I love anything oversized really. It’s perfect for me to wear to work too, as it’s really smart casual.

The shirt was £12 at Rosegal – check it out here.

If you’re into embroidery you should definitely head over to Rosegal as they’re really going in on embroidery right now, and everything is so pretty!

Thanks again to Rosegal for sending me these gorgeous clothes, they’ve definitely saved me a job as I hadn’t yet found a bikini for my holiday. Make sure you check out their website, they sell so many clothes and accessories – whatever you’re into, they probably have it.

Let me know in the comments which of these items is your favourite. Thanks for reading and make sure you come back on Wednesday for another What I Ate Wednesday! In the meantime, why not head over to my Twitter or Instagram to see what I’m up to? In the meantime, check out my previous post ‘Things to do in the summer holidays’!

lace up swimsuit and embroidered trainers – Rosegal wishlist

lace up swimsuit and embroidered trainers – Rosegal wishlist

With payday just around the corner, I’ve put together a wishlist of items including a lace up swimsuit, yellow crochet bikini, fish net socks and embroidered trainers from rosegal.com! Hopefully I’ll inspire you to spend some money you shouldn’t be spending too.

First up is this absolutely gorgeous embroidered black dress – check it out here. I love the really low neck line and the rose embroidery is gorgeous – I’m a bit obsessed with embroidery at the moment, as you’ll realise as you read this post. This dress is just $14, which is an absolute bargain as it’s so pretty!

Also on my wishlist, are these embroidered white trainers. Again with the embroidery, I love it. They have three different designs available – blue flowers, red roses and gold flowers, but I especially love the red roses. They’re the perfect summer trainers and they’re only $20!

I’m also loving Rosegal’s bikinis. They’ve got so so many to choose from and I particularly love all of their tropical patterned ones and the lace-up ones. This black one with floral bottoms and a lace up top is my favourite and would be perfect for my holiday in August – check it out here! If you’re in need of a bikini, definitely go check out Rosegal because they have such a variety and they’re all such good prices!

I’m also obsessed with this lace up swimsuit and this yellow crochet bikini – go check out all their bikinis because there are hundreds to choose from so whatever you’re looking for, they’ve got it!

I’m really into the whole fish net tights and socks look at the moment, and so a pair of fish net socks would have to be on my wishlist. At just $1.79 from Rosegal, how can I say no? Check out my favourite pair here.

Finally, I’m obsessed with this off the print floral striped dress. It’s so pretty and is the kind of dress you could wear with heels if you were dressing up, or with converse on a nice sunny day.

Why not head over to Rosegal and make your own wishlist – they’ve got some great summer clothes and shoes to pick from! You can also get 10% off if you’re a new customer so make sure you go check them out.

Let me know which you’d buy in the comments and keep an eye out for a post later this week when I’ll have no-doubt accidentally ordered these. I’ve also got a June Favourites post going up on Saturday morning so make sure you subscribe my blog to be the first to see that!

Huge holiday haul

Huge holiday haul

If you follow my Instagram for my blog you may have seen that I recently went on holiday to Devon. While I was away I ventured in to Exeter for a day to check out their shops – I wasn’t disappointed.

I started off in New Look, which is a shop I’ll always end up back at. I first picked up this gorgeous watch. I already have a more expensive metal watch but wanted something that wouldn’t be tapping on the desk every time I typed something at work. It was an added bonus that the watch is actually really pretty and looks a lot more expensive than it is (it was just £12)!

I also got this pretty embroidered shirt. I’m loving the whole embroidery trend at the moment and this shirt is just perfect for this time of the year and is ideal for work. It was £18, which I didn’t think was too bad at all.

I know the whole band t-shirt thing is kind of controversial and that’s why I’ve held back now for a while and not hopped on the band wagon. But to be honest, I’ve decided I just don’t care anymore and I’ll wear whatever I like. So I picked up this ripped Rolling Stones t-shirt – which I love. I also got this cropped pink jumper. It’s the perfect comfy kind of jumper to lounge around in on a mouldy Sunday and it was well worth the buy.

Lastly, I finally managed to get a light up letter ‘E’! I’ve wanted one of these for so so long but nowhere ever seems to have an E in stock. Of course I couldn’t not buy it. It looks great on my book shelf and is fab for blog and Instagram pictures. I also picked up the infamous golden pineapple that almost every blogger seems to own. Again, it looks great on my shelf and is really pretty. It just means that I can keep rings and little miscellaneous objects that often get lost all together in one pretty dish.

Facetune

I also popped in to Primark, of course. I got myself the prettiest and so un-Primark-like underwear set. I feel like Primark have seriously upped their lingerie game recently and have some beautiful sets. I really wish I’d bought more actually as they’d got some seriously pretty bralettes! They were so inexpensive too at just £8 for the bra and £6 for the pants. I also loved the fact that they’re sold separately so you can have a different size  for the top to the bottom – is anyone actually the same size top and bottom? Also, if you have slightly bigger boobs and don’t think you can wear bralettes then maybe give this one a go as it has the extra cross straps across the back for a bit more support!

Facetune

I’m an absolute sucker for a playsuit, I love them, and I couldn’t resist this one from Primark. It was only £8 and will be perfect if we actually ever get any warm weather over here (I doubt it).

As if I don’t already have far too many fairy lights, I picked up these copper wire ones for £4 from Primark because you just can’t ever have too many fairy lights.

IMG_7177

I also popped in to H&M and bought this pretty phone case. I’d actually seen this online and almost got it but when I saw it in the shop I realised it was way prettier in person. The flowers are actually real and have been pressed, which I just think is the best idea to be honest. It was only £5.99 and there were various other cases that I liked there too, H&M have got a good selection.

IMG_7184

I also made a trip in to the Card Factory, because they sell the best candles believe it or not. I bought this lavender candle and it’s just strong enough to be able to tell what it is without being really over powering. I love lighting lavender candles before I go to bed as they help me sleep, if you find it hard to get to sleep you should definitely try it.

IMG_7178

Finally, – which I didn’t actually buy myself but I’m including it in my haul anyway – my friend Emily got me The One Memory of Flora Banks by Emily Barr. Coincidentally, I just so happened to have bought her the exact same book and she’s already finished it and seemed to rate it. I’m only about a quarter of the way through though but so far it seems alright – I’ll update you in a later post when I’ve finished it.

IMG_7182

So as you can tell, my whole saving money thing is going well! I regret none of these purchases though, even if my bank account is now crying. Thank you for reading and keep an eye out for an adventure-y post tomorrow, full of pictures from my holiday!

Spring clothes haul – ASOS, Boohoo & H&M

Spring clothes haul – ASOS, Boohoo & H&M

I recently treated myself to a bunch of new clothes and shoes and what not from ASOS, Boohoo and H&M and thought I’d share them with you guys. It is a slightly spring-like haul, I mean it is probably as colourful as I’m going to get..

IMG_6498The main thing I really needed was a pair of shoes. I’ve got a lot of trainers and I could do with some smarter more actual adulting shoes, so got myself these. Don’t get me wrong, I love Vans and Converse, they’re definitely way more comfortable, but sometimes you just need some smart shoes. Plus, I think these are a little bit more spring-like, although they’re still black. I got these from ASOS and they were £22. If you want to check them out you can find them here. I found that they were really true to size and they’re quite cushioned on the soles so they’re quite comfy. I love the lace up thing that they’ve got going on and I also love the little heel with the gold around it.

IMG_6503I decided to get myself a new pair of sunnies. I already have a nice pair that I got last
year, but I decided to get another pair so I could keep one in the car for when I’m driving and get blinded. I went for some big old cat eye ones by Mango from ASOS, and I’m obsessed with them. They were a little more than I’d usually pay for a pair of sunglasses at £16, but they feel really sturdy and I just like them so much that I couldn’t say no.

IMG_6499When I went looking for clothes I didn’t plan to buy pyjamas at all, but I saw these and just couldn’t resist. Again, they’re probably a bit pricey for a pair of pyjamas but just look at them. I’m always a sucker for some nice pyjamas, I like my comfy clothes. I also think that I could probably actually get away with wearing the shorts as actual clothes – they’d be nice to wear on the beach probably. They’re really nice and silky and just generally really comfy to wear in bed. Again, they’re from ASOS, you can find them here.

IMG_6501I also got this seriously pretty top from Boohoo. I absolutely love the mesh bit at the top and the flowers. The sleeves are so so cute too. I’m not usually a cute, flowery top kind of girl but this thing is gorgeous! The only thing I’d say is – make sure you’ve got a white vest top to go underneath as it is seriously quite see-through. Otherwise, the whole top is just so pretty and spring-like. The collar also makes it quite smart so it is ideal forwearing to work. I’m looking forward to wearing it with my new shoes on Monday! It was £20 but Boohoo had 20% off so I got it for £16! If you want to have a look for yourself, here you go.

IMG_6502I’m quite a skirt lover lately – I find them way more comfortable than skinny jeans. I’ve already got a blue denim skirt, but I decided to invest in a black one. It’s basically just your average blacked washed denim skirt, but I’m really pleased with it because ASOS did a tall version of the skirt, which is so so important for lanky old me. Skirts are always miles to short on me because of my mile-long-legs, but this is actually a socially acceptable length. It also has a little bit of fringing along the hem, which is quite nice. It was just £25 from ASOS, so check it out here if you fancy.

IMG_6504Lastly, I got this black strappy top from H&M. It’s not very colourful or spring-like at all, but it’s got this sort-of velvet like texture that’s really shiny, and I love the straps. I’ve actually been wearing it backwards, to be honest, because I like it with the straps at the front (just because the straps are never seen on my back with my hair down). It was just £12, and it’s so easy to stick with anything. I quite like wearing it over the top of a long sleeve plain white top when it isn’t very warm, or with an open checked shirt. Click here to see for yourself! Nice view of my armpits right? Sorry about that!

Favourite Four – clothes I can’t live without

Favourite Four – clothes I can’t live without

I’ve recently posted a lot of make-up posts, so I thought I’d mix it up a bit for you and put up a clothes related post. Following on from my Favourite Four Products I Can’t Live Without post, I thought I’d do the same but with items of clothing.

First up is 100% without a doubt my current favourite pair of shoes (shoes are included vans pic 3in items of clothing right?). My Old Skool Vans. I’ve wanted a pair of these for ages but at £50 I just couldn’t seem to justify them (which is mad considering I’ll happily spend that on make-up or books?) but I bit the bullet and treated myself in February. Every time I come home and have to take my shoes off I actually hate having to take them off – but my Mom is a real anti-shoes in the house Mom.  They’re so so comfy and although they probably don’t quite go with everything, I make them work with everything. They’re basically the only shoes I wear now. I’m such a  Vans/Converse over heels kind of girl and I just wish I’d bloody bought these sooner! I got mine from Schuh, here’s the link if you want to check them out.

Next up, of course, would be my black jeans. Although I end up buying a new pair every few months because they always fade (if you know of any pairs out there that don’t fade LET ME KNOW, I beg you), they’re still my go-to trouser option. I usually opt for ASOS ones as they’re quite stretchy – which is always needed after dinner, being high waisted jeans – I also like how you can choose the leg length as I’m a tall gal and the average length jeans just aren’t ever long enough for me. Black jeans are just so easy to work with; you can put them with more or less anything and they can be casual, smart, dressy. You can’t go wrong.

Ayyy for Holly Willoughby on TV in the background

I’ve mentioned this black dungaree dress from H&M before in my February Favourites, and it has quite quickly become one of my favourite items of clothing ever. It is my go-to when my Mom forces me to wash my black jeans, or when I’ve worn my black jeans for more than the socially acceptable amount of days and need to change it up to show people that I do own other clothes. I really love how it looks with my Vans too actually. I can also get away with it at work, as when worn with the right top it can look quite formal. So it’s a win win, I love it. If you fancy getting yourself one, you can check it out here.

lets pretend the lighting is fab and the quality is top notch

 

I’m really torn for my last one. I can’t decide whether to go with my leather jacket or my denim jacket, so I’m going to be rebellious and mention both. Although I’ve got a variety of coats and jackets, I always end up wearing one of these two. I usually opt for the leather jacket for work or if I’m trying to look a bit more dressy. Whereas, the denim jacket is a bit more laid back and informal – which is more me to be honest. My denim jacket is super oversized and again is from ASOS. It was about £55 I believe when I bought it about this time last year, but it’s a real investment. I can’t seem to find the same jacket, but here’s one very similar you can get. My leather jacket isn’t actually leather, it’s faux and it was just from Boohoo for around £30. I got it about two and a half years ago, so it’s lasted me well, and it’s just so easy to put with everything, like black jeans. Again, I don’t think it’s the exact same but here’s a really similar one, and it’s vegan too!

So there’s my four (or five) favourite items of clothing. What are your favourite items of clothing? Are any of yours the same of mine? Let me know in the comments!
