This week's fashion post is going to be a pretty massive haul. It's officially Winter so I hit the high street to pick up some fashion and accessories to wrap up in over the coming months...Obviously I didn't buy this all in one go because even I have limits!
Behind a cut because, trust me, it really is HUGE!
Black Check Blanket Wrap, New Look, £19.99 - buy here
How did it take me so long to get my hands on one of these?! I just love this blanket wrap as it's so affordable and there are loads of ways to style it. Also from New Look I picked up a pair of black Chelsea Boots - they're the kind of thing I wear most days and I chose these because they have a slight heel.
Black Short Chelsea Boots, New Look, £24.99 - buy here
More shoes! I seriously needed them though! These flat loafers from River Island are the perfect stylish black flats to wear in or out of work. They feel really sturdy and I thought they were going to be way more expensive when I picked them up. I bought them in-store a few weeks ago but can't see them online so I linked some similar ones.
Patent Loafers, River Island, £25 - buy similar here
I was in serious need of a new handbag - I'd pretty much been wearing a tan leather one at weekends and my black bag for work and nothing else. I love this River Island bowler bag as it's so stylish and such a good size without feeling big and clumsy! This seems to be sold out online so I've linked the other version
Dark Brown Croc Bowler Bag, River Island, £40 - buy similar here
I neede handbags - ok?! I was after something a little more oxblood but this red-pink berry bag was such a perfect style and size so I went for it.
Olivia Textured Dome Bag in Berry, Accessorize, £32 - buy here
I really wasn't sure if hats were going to be for me so these bargains from Primark were perfect to test the waters with - definitely check them out as they really are fab!
Floppy Hat, £8 and Fedora Hat, £7 - both Primark (not available online)
I love a good scarf so I grabbed a few from various places. These Primark scarves are so big and thick that they can even be worn as wraps - they really are amazing! I also couldn't resist grabbing some faux fur.
Tartan Scarf and Floral Scarf, £5 each, both Primark (not available online). Black Faux Fur Mini Collar, New Look, £7.99 - buy here. Rebel Faux Fur Collar in Brown, Missguided, £12.99 - buy here
I know I already mentioned the stole but LOOK AT IT! I was really impressed that the Primark gloves are real leather and came in a variety of sizes (one of which fitted my huge hands). I'm not big on gloves (if that's a thing...) so wasn't wanting to spend on them.
Wine-Coloured Faux Fur Stole*, Dorothy Perkins, £18 - buy here. Scarf, Primark, £5. Gloves, Primark, £8 (not available online)
I must admit; this was a total impulse purchase! I'd really wanted a fur coat but had written it off as I needed more essential things like shoes and I knew one would cost a good £80. In steps Primark with this caramel-coloured beauty!
Faux Fur Coat, Primark, £35 (not available online)
Not the most exciting things in the world but I also got some workwear. The jacket could work as a daytime piece too though; it was another impulse buy as I was actually in Miss Selfridge to return something! I grabbed this £12 Primark dress because I have it in plain black and it's so flattering and great! It's served me so well I couldn't resist.
Mono Chevron Duster Jacket, Miss Selfridge, £35 - buy here. Work Dress, Primark, £12
I'm not normally a 'heels in the day' kind of gal as I'm really clumsy and not very careful...however I thought these boots would be really comfy and a good way to add a bit of style to an outfit whilst still staying warm.
Artist Ankle Boots, Miss Selfridge, £35 - buy here
As you can probably tell, I'm loving Miss Selfridge right now! Their range isn't huge but everything is on point and stylish. I was wearing the camel version of this faux-fur trim cardi so much that I snapped up the black version in the Black Friday sales.
My love of jeggings is no secret - I just can't go back to the stiffness of conventional jeans! I love the Rivington style from ASOS so wanted to pick another colour during the Black Friday sales. It's not the most seasonal but I love this vintage wash and the fact it comes in so many different leg and waist sizes. They're a total bargain even full price!
Rivington High-Waist Jeggings in Mid-Wash Blue, ASOS, £28 - buy here
I really love Zara for the Autumn/Winter months and their sweaters are fantastic value! I think roll necks are so stylish so I'm very happy they're on-trend this season. I can't wait to tuck this into my ASOS jeggings!
Black Ribbed Sweater, Zara, £19.99 - buy here
