The Haul Post

another haul post today! this will honestly be the last one i do for a while (she says, already planning a Barcelona and birthday haul...) as i'll be back off to uni soon and my lowly student budget.
i feel like i'm finding myself making excuses quite a lot lately, but i am once again sorry for the quality of these pictures. by the time i get home from work, i'm out of good lighting so this is the best i can do!

i'll kick it off with clothing. after starting to make plans for my 21st, i knew it was probably time to start looking for a dress and i finally settled on this white Margery Lace Swing Dress from Missguided. i've had my eye on it for a while but never had the occasion for it until now. 
as with any haul i post, there is of course the usual ASOS loving. this time i picked up the Floral Swing Dress and this gorgeous Swing Playsuit. the dress is perfect for that summer/autumn transition and looks fab with sandals now, but will work just as well with tights and chunky boots when it gets a bit colder. i love the detailing on the back of the playsuit, and you would never know that it wasn't a dress once its on! i'll try and get some OOTD's whilst i'm on holiday to show you what they're like. 

i've finally picked up some new jewellery recently, too. the necklace was an unexpected find in Story Twenty One and was just £3.99, so it would just be rude to leave it behind. they also had it in silver which i think will sneak its way into my possession too. i then picked up these Midi Rings from New Look and am particularly getting a lot of wear out of the rose gold ones. 

i was after a little, boxy tan bag to see me through the winter, and saw this one on Ebay for just over £15 from a foreign seller. i've seen a really similar one since in H&M for the same sort of price if you want something a little cheaper and closer to home! i've also been looking for some black sandals for most of the summer as all i have is flip flops and wanted something a little more fashionable, so when i saw these Strappy Buckle Sandals on the Blue Inc website for a mere £12, they were soon winging their way to me in the post. they've taken a bit of wearing in to stop the rubbing, but i wish i'd found them sooner in the summer!

another Barry M Gelly Nail Paint is now mine and this time i picked up Passion Fruit. i bought Mango at the same time, but can't find it anywhere for the life of me now! i also gave in and bought the Bourjois Bronzing Primer and i don't know why i didn't pick it up sooner. i think i might like the smell even more than the actual bronzer...

and that's where another chunk of my poor bank balance has gone! what have you guys been picking up lately that you think i'd like?
