Primark, Next, New Look, etc haul...

Okay, this is my first haul post so it's quite exciting really!! I'm going on holiday to Tunisia in exactly 4 weeks today, therefore went shopping for some evening outfits and other little bits and bobs. So here goes...

First stop was good old Primark..

A floral dip-hem dress at £17. I know it's a bit pricey for Primark but it's really good quality and the colours are so bright I think this is a perfect dress for holidays, summer barbecues and summer weddings!!

Another dip-hem item with this pink skirt at £10. I'm really loving this dip hem trend at the moment, however I'm not tallest person so it can be difficult to find pieces that aren't basically to the floor at the back and makes me look short. These two things however are perfect for shorter people as well as taller people!!

I then got these cute pinky/coral denim shorts. At only £5 I was tempted to pick up a few different colours as bright colours are going to be big over summer, but restrained myself due to my budget!!

Up until last year, I could never wear shoes with toe-posts but with so many of the nicest sandals and flip flops with them, I just grinned and beared it last year!! Now I'm immune to toe posts and I lived in Primark's flip flops last year, I picked up this pair for only £2.50.. They can be worn in two different ways, which makes them versatile and mega comfy!!

Next stop was Miss Selfridge, now I don't normally shop here but I was walking through here due to the rain and these shorts caught my eye! Reduced from £30 to £15, they were a steal and I love the colour. I also think they can be dressed down with tights over winter too.

I then popped into New Look...

I picked up this fab symmetrical dress, reduced from £24.99 to just £10!! I wasn't too sure on the hanger but it was beautiful on and I know these prints are very 'in' at the moment, so this dress is perfect for day to night events!!

I wanted some plain tan wedges, and had searched all over for some that would be suitable for a lounging holiday with my Mam. So when I spotted these and tried them on, I fell in love. The colour means that they will go with a lot of things and without a strap across the front they make my legs look longer! Plus a steal at £19.99. (I also got 20% student discount off these too, double score!!)

Then I got this gorgeous maxi dress from Next. I don't normally shop in Next, but had a giftcard for £10 so thought I would have a look in when I saw this beauty. Reduced from £32 to £14 and with my giftcard ended up being only £4, total bargain!! I also love the plaiting along the halter neckline. 


I picked these two pieces of jewellery up at Evans. The owl necklace was reduced from £8.50 to £2 and the earrings reduced from £3.50 to £1.

Last but not least I picked up these travel size goodies from Soap and Glory from Boots. They were all only £2.50 and they were on 3 for 2 so got all three for £5!! Going to be perfect for while I'm away!!
