It’s been about a month since my last H&M haul, and it’s time for another one.
This T-shirt was actually a birthday present. I love Friends and I love graphic tees, so this is right up my street.
Even though summer is over, I thought this red, floral, off-shoulder top was really pretty. I probably won’t get much use out of it right now, but I’ll just save for next year.
This, on the other hand, will be very appropriate in a few month’s time. If you didn’t now, I’m obsessed with Christmas jumpers, and I thought about getting this one last year, but some reason I didn’t. Until now. I found it on sale on H&M’s webpage, and I can’t wait to wear it in December.
Remember the pink corduroy trousers, I featured in my last H&M haul? Well, I had to have the brown ones too. They are so ’70s, and I can’t wait to style these.
I’ve also bought a pair of black wide-led trousers. They have a old-fashioned look to them, and they’ll be interesting to style.
Lastly, I bought a black beret. I had a black beret years ago, but I lost it and never found it again, so now a have a new one.
Here’s what I wore Wednesday September 5. It was a slightly warmer day, which was a perfect opportunity to wear these crazy, pink culottes. I decided to pair the culottes with other navy and pink items.

Here’s what I wore Tuesday September 4. I love styling up this denim set in different ways.

It’s time for the second part of my collective haul; these are some clothes I’ve bought recently.
As you might have noticed, I love second hand shopping. I love the fact that you never know what you’re going to find, and due to the inexpensive prices, you can try out a lot of different styles without breaking the bank. One of my most recent second hand purchases is this pair of trousers. They are very different from anything I own, but I thought they would be fun to style. I’ll be posting an outfit featuring them soon.
When I’m second hand shopping, I’m always looking for blazers. In the store where I also found the trousers, I found this long pinstriped blazer. I love the dark grey colour with the camel pinstripes, and it has shoulder pads which is always a plus.
I’m obsessed with stripy T-shirts, and I couldn’t resist these two from Monki. They both have glitter (how great is that!), and I love the colour schemes. The second T-shirt with the brown and blue stripes will be a perfect match for a pair of trousers that I’ll feature in my next haul.
Lastly, I bought some fun socks. I love colourful, fun socks, and Monki has some of the best ones. I couldn’t leave behind the rainbow glitter ones, and I love the plain coloured ones as well.
Here’s the make-up I wore with this party outfit. I decided to wear a fun, blue eye shadow look and paired it with a bit more muted lip colour, and I love it!

Here’s what I wore Saturday night September 1. It’s not very often that I have the opportunity or time to take party outfit pictures, but this is what I wore at a dorm party two weeks ago (I might not live in a dorm anymore, but I can still attend dorm parties right). I love dressing up for parties, but at the same time I want to feel comfortable in whatever I wear, and I felt very comfortable in this outfit.
(Trousers – Monki, top + heels – H&M, belt – second hand)
Here’s what I wore Wednesday August 29. I’m really into blazers these days, and my favourite way to wear them is with a graphic or stripy T-shirt.
