I went shopping!

I went to Edinburgh with my mum because I seriously had nothing to wear on those days when it's too warm for a coat, but to cold for just a cardigan or something, so I needed more jumpers and things like that. I didn't buy much, and was contemplating doing a quick video as it would take less time and I could show you the items in more detail, but my webcam annoys me to much so I'll just stick to good ol' regular bloggin'!
I went to H&M first because aaaaah I love that shop so much! The first thing I got was this bag for school - I have to carry 3 lever arch files, a ring binder as well as all the other crap that I insist on taking to school (water, phone, ipod, approx.5738947 lip balms, keys, hand sanitiser, mints/gum, kirby grip tin etc) so I needed a big one, and that's exactly what I got - this one is haauuuuuuuge! Honestly, I think I could fit a small country in here - perfect! ...and it was only £30:-)

I then bought this gorgeous jumper for £9.99 - it was love at first sight! This picture doesn't do it justice AT ALL, it's amazing. The colour is a gorgeous rust and the fit is lovely - I got it in a medium because I wanted a slouchy fit, but I think it would look really nice in a slightly tighter fit also.
I also got a grey v-neck, but I forgot to take a picture... tut tut.

Then I went to River Island and saw the most beautiful thing I have ever seen in my life... in the form of this gorgeous sheer navy blouse. It was originally £22 but it was £10 off, so it was a steal at £12! I was amazed there were any left, although they were hidden in a corner.. It's longer at the back than at the front, which I think gives a really elegant silhouette, more so than a boxy even hemmed shirt. It's really flattering, and I just love it. Oh and did I mention... it's batwing! Again, my crappy self portrait skills don't to this blouse OR my camera justice, but bare with me while I get used to using it!

I then went to Zara and picked up a really nice pair of camel skinny jeans. They were only £19 so it was a real bargain! They fit really well and make my legs look really slim - if you could see me you'd know slim is the last work you'd use to describe my legs, hahaha! 

I also went to New Look where I bought a mustard yellow vest top, just because they're handy to have so shove on under things, and then these amaaaazing loafers. Cover anything with leopard print and I'll buy it. These shoes were only £17.99 and they're so comfy and just lovely!

I had a really good day shopping with my mum - we NEVER go together, we just end up stressing eachother out but this time it ran smoothly, hahaha! She bought herself a Radley bag so I think that put her in a good mood ;) Have you bought any of these things recently?
