what I've been buying: summer accessories

hello sunshine, good bye wages.

sunny weather puts me in a dangerously good mood which usually leads to shopping. yes I know.. I'm weak.

I have resisted shopping for clothes however (gives myself a pat on the back) and instead decided to buy a few little accessories to perk up my wardrobe for the summer.

first up some sunglasses as I'm horrendlous short of pairs. I'm not sure where they disappear to every year but I have a feeling my mum or sister has a stash of my specs hidden away somewhere... rascals! I picked these sunnies up in h&m along with the blingtastic necklace! I've wanted a statement piece to wear with a white tee and jeans for the summer and I liked the shape of this one.

I also grabbed some barry m gelly polishes (finally!!) I think I was the only blogger who didn't own any of these so I'm looking forward to swatching them. bright shiny nails with summer skin are so pretty!

The last beauty purchase was a top up of my maybelline dream lumi touch concealer; I tend to switch from foundation to just concealer when it's warm so this is an essential one for me!
my final purchase was these gorgeous gladiator sandals from new look, I've had some gift vouchers to use up and when I saw these I knew it was game over. real leather and super comfortable I'll be trading in my cowboy boots for these strappy delights straight away! 
 sunglasses and necklace: h&m
black leather stud gladiator sandals: new look

I hope you're all enjoying the bank holiday.. I'm off to hit up the garden and get me some vitamin D!

back soon!
