April Clothing Buys

I think it's fair to say i have lost my blogging mojo this week; uni work has got in the way of most things and i haven't been feeling particularly chirpy to say the least, but i thought i'd get straight back into the swing of things with a little clothing haul. It's been a dull, rainy week (cue lots of bad hair days and soggy shoes - LAVley) and so i turned to the shops to cheer myself up. Here's all the stuff i seem to have accumulated...

Leopard Skirt - Primark - £8
Stripey Skirt - H&M - £12.99

 Floral Playsuit - H&M - £14.99

Floral Trousers - £14.99 £7 - New Look (sale)

I've been after a pair of floral trousers for ages now. But due to my significant lack of height they're always too long or resemble McHammer pants on me.. but these were perfect. They grip around the ankles so i don't look like i'm sporting my jammie bottoms and with a little crop top in the summer they'll look fabulous.

 Lace Crop Top - £20 - River Island (via ASOS)

I always order my River Island bits on ASOS so i can get a decent bit of student discount. I thought this would look nice with the floral trousers and for a night out with the leopard print skirt from Primark. Tops like this are so versatile for summer and i justified its £20 price tag with the fact i will get a decent amount of wear out of it. I love the little hook & eye corset-style detail.. it dresses it up slightly.

Loose Knit Jumper/Top - £15.99 £7 - New Look (sale)

It looks white here but it's actually more of a creamy/yellowy beige. I love loose knits for springtime as they're perfect to layer on top of little dresses and skirts if theres still a bit of a chill in the air.

Basic Tops:
Mint Green Cropped Top - £4.99 - New Look
White Vest - £4.99 - New Look


Black Crochet Hotpants - H&M (I believe these were around £8)
Pastel Pink Shorts - £8.99 (i think!) - H&M

 Studded Clutch - £14.99 - New Look

I've been after a neutral coloured clutch bag for a while now for nights out, something that will go with everything. I loved the little studded detail on this one and it also comes with a chain just incase i want to wear it over the shoulder. Bargain.

What have you been buying this month?
Is anyone else a little bit fed up with this crappy weather?!

  17. Tee hee! I had to laugh at the MC Hammer reference. It is incredibly hard to pull off baggy-ish patterned trousers. I'm glad you found some you liked. Oh and on a completely random note, I thought that clutch was a photo album at a glance! Regardless, it's lovely.
