Payday Shopping Splurge
June 4, 2011
The weather is warming up, it feels like summer has arrived and with the change of season comes a change in wardrobe, so for me that means time for a spot of shopping. So, when payday arrived last week, I had a bit of a shopping splurge and here is what I brought.
I love this AX Paris top! Butterfly print is everywhere right now and I love how it brightens up any outfit. Although it looks cropped, it falls below the waistline so it’s not midriff exposing and can be tucked in if you want to style it that way.
|Butterfly Print Top – £18|
I’ve been wearing it with shorts (my wardrobe staple throughout spring and summer), tucking it in to high waisted and paper bag shorts, and leaving loose for on the hip shorts. While on the topic of shorts, I also ordered these from Lipsy
Lipsy coral shorts – £32
I really like the paperbag shorts trend, they’re really flattering and look great with a blouse or T-shirt tucked in, giving a smart and stylish look. My only gripe was that they were a little too small and when I tried to exchange for the next size on the returns form, they don’t give you an option of doing so, which means I’m going to have to re-order and pay for delivery again. Not a great customer experience however I love these shorts, and love Lipsy clothes in general so will definitely re-order and maybe get them in cornflower blue too!
I’ve never really worn coral before, but this season I can’t get enough of it, so when I saw these cute coral sandals from Dorothy Perkins I knew I had to have them! I really struggle with shoes, I think I must be in-between sizes as every new pair gives me horrendous blisters and take forever to wear in, but thankfully not this pair! They are really comfortable, not too high and perfect for day and night.
Warehouse Wrap Dress – £30
These sleeveless wrap dresses are perfect to wear from the office to a night out and at £30 they’re really reasonable for Warehouse. I loved both colours so ordered them both to try on to see which I preferred and I think I’ll keep the navy dress as it’s so versatile and the darker colour makes it more flattering than the fuschia pink too.
So that was my payday splurge! I’d love to hear about your latest buys, so what have you treated yourself to recently?
