PAYDAY HAUL PART II - (River Island, Boots, Topshop, Missguided etc.)

So I might've been naughty and spent some more pennies on more lovely things but heyho you can't take it with you can you!? Anyway let's commence with the haul and all...


Ahh I am in love with these patent cut-out boots. They are so chunky and clunky (kinda remind me of some shoes in the movie Clueless) and they were so damn hard to get my hands on. Originally they'd sold out online so I checked in all my local RI stores to no avail...so when I saw they were back online I snapped them up instantly. They do have this style in a matte black too if shiny shiny ain't your thing. I think they are pretty good Coltrane dupes and for a fraction of the price - bonus!


You might of seen this dress featured in my latest OOTD here. It is a loose skater-style fit tartan mini-dress and I think it might just be one of my favourite things I own. It's quite a lightweight jersey material but really good quality. They have this dress in a blue tartan too.


So PU and look-alike leather is all in for this A/W so I thought I'd pick myself up something now plus at the time ASOS were having a 20% new season flash sale. I know it looks quite a simple piece but I thought this will just be so versatile to put under sheer shirts or layer over t-shirts or even to wear with something highwaisted. I've got so many outfit ideas for this which I'm pretty excited about.


I only popped into Boots quickly just to pick up this white polish which I've been meaning to grab for a while now and Boots had a buy one get one half price offer on Barry M so I picked up this really pretty pastel blue up too. 


DUNGAREE SHORTS - £20 (sale)

I bought this a while ago offline but I kept forgetting to include it in hauls but I've finally remembered. I bought this because I just fell in love with the embroidery detail, thing is this was only available as a petite exclusive which means I had to do quite a bit of alteration to get it to fit (y'know because petite sizing is usually for females 5"4 and under whereas I'm almost 5"7 - clever Amy.) I think this will be more of an A/W piece styled with tights because they are very short on me! 


RING - £2.99

Now I just love dinosaur jewellery so when I saw this little ring in H&M well...it just had to be mine! 


HEELS - £14

So after buying Primark's strappy heeled sandals I fell in love with this sort of style of shoe and my lovely Granny kindly purchased these for me because she thought they were so very divine too! I love the monochrome (although the white could be risky on nights out!) and I adore the thick strap, I just think they look so not Primark-y...in fact I saw a similar pair in River Island for £70!


I am a little bit obsessed with midi rings I just find they look so dainty and delicate so I nipped into Topshop to get a couple because I saw they had such lovely designs on their website. I think they had both styles in both gold and silver.


DRESS - £9.94 (inc. p&p)

Missguided have some really cool stuff in at the moment and I am so super excited for new season launches. I picked this simple black cut out detail skater dress in their sale just because I thought it will come in very handy over the next few months as a LBD, and it was such a bargain!

Okay so I think that's it fashion shopping-wise this month (well maybe) as all the shopping I'll now be doing will be in preparing for Uni in a few weeks (well that swung by quick!). I'm thinking of doing a University preparation post soon actually so stick around if you're interested in such things! 

As always I hope you are all very well and if you haven't already then please remember to follow me on bloglovin here!
