Shopping Haul 06.28.2014

I really should never shop alone! Especially when I'm hitting all the best shops, like Topshop, Zara, Forever 21, and H&M. My debt card is getting too much use this summer...#opps #brokestudentforlife

But I got some amazing pieces! Some that I have been longing for for a long time and others that I recently fell head over heels in love with.

I think it's safe to say I went a little shopping-crazy.

I was lusting over the Zara skort since seeing Sophia Smith and countless bloggers snapping up this beauty. And that was almost a year ago! By random chance on my first visit to my local Zara, I saw this skort in black and simply had to have it...and the sale going on make the purchase even more satisfying.
The dungarees are absolutely amazing! They are so soft and lightweight and breezy. A summer staple if you ask me. I first saw them on The Leather Look.

I wanted some loose tees for summer so I stopped at Forever 21. Their products are always great quality but not overpriced. So I picked up one white V-neck and one grey scoop neck.

My initial reason for going shopping was the find a dress for a wedding I'm attending later in the summer. After having no luck at 3 stores, I made the decision that H&M would be my final stop for dress shopping. After more bad luck in the dress department, I found a gorgeous satin jumpsuit with a black & white pattern. It's satin material should (hopefully) keep me cool at an outdoors summer wedding.

When I got to Topshop, I instantly went on the hunt for the denim dress that's been on my wish list for a while! And isn't it beautiful?! I love versatile dresses like this, they can be styled for any season.
I had also heard many good things about the Topshop tees. And they were not wrong. They are so soft and comfy. Fantastic, really.
As usual, I couldn't resist a small stroll through the shoes. And in a moment of weakness, I fell in love with the Nancy sandals . The criss cross strap details keep them elegant while the wood clog heel makes it unique and summery. I was quite skeptical of the wood heel but the shoe forms to your foot surprisingly well. And they look great with my H&M jumpsuit! Can anyone say "Bonus"? :P

Overall, I feel like I got some great pieces that will be great for the summer but still be suitable for cooler weather as well.

Fashion Find: Lottie With Love

While browsing through Instagram the other day, I came across Lottie Tomlinson's profile, which introduced me to the wonders of LoveClothing.com and, more specifically, her Lottie With Love collection with the online store. The pieces that she selected for her collection have very simplistic designs but with some edgy and sporty twists. 

Here are some of my favourite pieces from the collection

Instagram Outfit 06.20.2014

Topshop Tunic, Urban Planet Cardigan (similars here & here), Clarks Indigo Brogues

For the Love of Brogues

After months of seeing my fav bloggers in them, I finally caved and bought my first pair of brogues. I am absolutely in love with this trend. Brogues add a bit of class and formality to any outfit, and are a chic alternate to heels, especially in cold or rainy weather (I mean who actually enjoys stepping in a puddle in heels and getting water all up in your shoes?). The pair I bought are from Clarks Indigo and they are black leather with a cutout on the top of the foot.

Here are some ways that I would style brogues (and geek shoes because they are so similar and just as cute!)

 Playsuit: Boohoo Brogues: ASOS 
 Jeans: ASOS Brogues: Payless
 Blouse: Topshop Brogues: Miu Miu 
 Brogues: ASOS Bag: Mulberry
 Jacket (Similar): Topshop Beanie: Topshop Brogues: ASOS 
 Coat: TheDreslyn Bag: Alexander Wang Shoes: Topshop
 Playsuit: Topshop Bag: Alexander Wang Shoes: Topshop
 Skirt: Alexander Wang Shirt: Equipment Heels: Payless
 Sweater: TheKooples Bag: Michael Kors Brogues: Church's
Bag: Mulberry Watch: Movado Brogues: ASOS

Denim Daze

I have always had a love (pushing unhealthy attachment) for denim. Skinnies, boyfriend jeans, skirts, jackets...you name it, I got it or have had it. But there are some pieces that have become increasingly popular in the recent seasons that I absolutely adore and think are so unique without being wild and completely "out there" in the fashion world. Denim dresses and jumpsuits.

Here are some of my current denim obsessions and how I would style them. Later babes Xx.

Jumpsuit: Zara Sandals: Steve Madden x The Blonde Salad 
Dress: Topshop Sandals: Topshop Hat: SalSit

Dress: Topshop Boots: Dr. Martens Bag: Alexander Wang


Hear Me Roar

I follow a number of blogs, ranging from big name heavy-weights like Danielle Bernstein of WeWoreWhat to up-and-comers like Danielle Peazer of IdleLane. What I love about reading so many different blogs is not only seeing how different people express themselves but also being exposed and introduced to a wide variety of stores and brands.

If you follow IdleLane, you should know that Danielle loves their new line of jewelry from Katy Perry. After stopping into my neighbourhood Claires store to investigate, I fell in love with the whole collection! The bold designs and sharp lines as well as the crystals and pearls make the whole line a major standout! Most of the pieces are gold-based with mostly crystal and pearl accents, which are my kryptonite (already bought the crystal and pearl front-back earrings), but the collection is still on trend with flower cuffs and head bands. 

Here are some of my favourite items from the collection Xx.

06.13.14 Shopping Haul

Normally when I go shopping I go with the frame of mind that I will only get a few items that I really need or could use in many different ways. But that is never the case. If I leave the mall with two bags or less, it's an off day. And this major haul was no different.

After a few key stops, this is everything that I walked away with:

Forever 21:

  • black maxi skirt

Though I loves shops like Topshop, Zara, and American Apparel, I am a university student on a budget so I'm learning to shop with my bank account in mind, not my Polyvore sets. 

All things aside, I am very happy with my purchases :) xx


Polka Dot Dream

The ever-increasing popularity of rompers and jumpsuits finally started catching my eye a couple months ago. I am in love with how simple yet chic they can look while still being extremely comfy. They are also very easy to transition, like going from casual to formal or summer to winter. Lately I have really been loving this romper from Forever 21.

I love how feminine and classic polka dots look. And the loose-fitting and flowy silloette makes it very easy to dress up or down. I will definitely be purchasing this romper soon!

Here are some ways that I would style the cute romper:

Later babes xx.
