new in | recent purchases

james and I went away this weekend and I wanted to pop to a few shops I don't have locally. I've been quite restrained lately trying to only purchase items that I'll wear often- I've realised that 90% of wardrobe is overlooked in favour of grabbing a basic tee and jeans for daily wear. I guess I'm a creature of habit!

with this in mind I was looking for a few new things to slot into my daily wardrobe and I came away with the following:

breton tee | cos
triangle bra | urban outfitters
BDG mom jeans | urban outfitters
novelty fries tee | zara

breton tee's are a firm staple for me so this was a done deal, cos are definitely my favourite for really good basics in beautiful fabrics. I'd never tried BDG denim so was expecting to hate these but was pleasantly surprised with the fit (when I was at the till I realised they had been reduced which made it a home run!) 

the lightweight cropped jumper is perfect for chillier evenings and james spotted the fries tee- he knows me too well.. danke zara. triangle bras are my absolute favourite style right now and urban outfitters have some lovely ones so I had to nab another.

I also grabbed a few pairs of leggings from forever 21, which for the £3 price are surprisingly good! unlike some stores they're not transparent as soon as you put them on and perfect for lounging about in.

I picked up a few smaller items:

paisley headband | forever 21
ecote make up bag | urban outfitters
honeymania shower gel | the body shop
physiological cleansing gel | la roche-posay

the cleansing gel is my new fave, it's not foaming and quite unlike my other face washes. in fact I find it darn hard to describe- lets just say its gentle and understated which I 100% like.  

the make up bag has pom poms.. I was powerless to resist.

back soon!
