Recent Outifit Purchases!

I rarely shop for clothes, and if I do, I nearly always take them back - which I may do with some of the things I picked out recently! I know summer is a long way away at the moment, as the weather is so unpredictable, but I wanted to pick up some pieces as I seen them, as I know i I go back, they will be gone. Sods law!

Firstly, I picked up this Pink and White Ombre Top, with spikes on the shoulders. I already have this in a dusty pink, with a skeleton ballerina on the front, but I kept looking at this one, too. I think its so pretty for summer and I can pair it with almost anything. I also really like that it is slightly longer at the back. I picked this up from Primark for £5.

I also found myself raking through River Islands sale racks. I usually never find anything for my shape in the sales, as I find River Islands sizing is awful at times! I found some light blue washed denim jeans. In the summer, and in general, I always stick to boring black leggings of occasionally skirts/dresses, but this summer, I really want to venture out into some jeans, to pair with some low converse, etc. Now, as I have a huge bum, hips and thighs - lets be honest! I find it difficult to find appropriate jeans that will flatter my figure! These just sit at an unflattering angle I think. They fit alright on the legs, but the waist of the jeans are huge on me, so I'm not sure whether to keep these, or return them and find a better fit. What do you think? Again, these are from River Island and cost me £20 from £30. I really do want a pair of full on high waisted jeans. Any recommendations?

There is a new TK Maxx in my town, which is very exciting for me. You can always find some really good deals, just depends on when you go! Recently I picked up a Wonderbra for £7.99. It's an amazing fit, too. My most recent purchase is this Fred Perry Polo Dress. My other hald actually pointed this out. At first, I thought it looked awful, just a massive Fred Perry Polo, but once I tried it on, it fit snuggly in all the right places. Granted, my figure could do with some tightening up, but as I have a big bottom half and a relatively small waist, this dress really emphasises it. I picked this up £25 from £80! This was an amazing bargain, and I have been after a Fred Perry for so long, so this is perfect for me!

I had been looking for a going out outfit, and I had no idea what people even wear. For a 21 year old, I hadn't been out in ages. I tried on a couple of skater dresses and crop tops, but I wasn't sure if they sited me. I was actually on the hunt for a black cut out dress, but nowhere seemed to stock any. Before I hit the changing rooms, I took in this floral cut out number, just so I could gain an idea of what it would look like on my figure. I personally think it looked lovely. I feel like it showed of the smallest part of my waist, and the dress skimmed over my hips and tummy. I settled on this, which is from New Look, by the Tokyo Doll range, for £14.99. It's not very going out-ey, but I figured I could easily pair this up with some pretty flats/converse in the summer!

This isn't an exciting one, but I thought I would pop it in anyways. I know that skater dresses are the most flattering cut on my body, so I am always on the hunt for a new one. They are great for me to just throw on, as I know they will look good. Browsing around Primark, I discovered this little gem for a mere £5! I wish they had more colour/designs in, but I am so happy with it! I usually pick mine up from H&M, which I still love, but they have a vest low-cut design, which makes me feel naked, to be quite frank! I love how this one has a higher neck line and little shoulders, so I feel more confident out. I can't wait to wear this when the  weather warms up!

So, that is all the outfits I have purchased recently. Not many, but I am surprised I let myself treat myself! I bought a few other beauty related stuff, which I will review soon!

I hope you didn't mind the dodgy pictures in the mirror. I would love a massively tall mirror, but these will have to do! Also, some were took in changing rooms, or off Instagram. If you would like to follow me on IG, my username is @Luceeloves!

  1. I really like the ombre top!
    I have the exact same problem with jeans, if they go over my thighs they're huuuge around my waist. Primark are actually the best fit I've found for the problem!
    I love the floral dress, too :)
