I went shopping..

Ohh dear. 
I've been naughty.
I went shopping.
And i bought stuff.
But it's ok.
Because i needed some retail therapy.

I mentioned in my New Year post that my mind had already turned to going on holiday and booking a little break away, and lo and behold, i've only gone and booked one.

I'm jetting off to Lanzarote in February for some muchos needed wintery sun. So i figured i NEED holiday stuff ( if i was going to find ANY summer-y stuff in the January sales but i used this as an excuse to shop myself silly anyway). Admittedly, i have been a bit naughty with my wages just recently, but i've earnt it so i'll bloody well spend it! (I'm normally quite good and put little bits of it away so i really fancied a 'naughty month'. We all deserve a naughty month now and again).

i shall cut ze crap, and show you what i pur-chased.
(I must warn you this is another long post..sorry..grab a cuppa and get comfy)

Top - H&M - £7.99
I saw this on someone's blog (cannot for the lift of me remember who's but i saw it and had to have it). I love simple tops like this, i've got a few of them and i wear them over and over again with body-con skirts and jeans. They go with anything and if i'm feeling in a bit of a casual mood i'll throw one of these on.

Dalmation print faux fur collar - River Island - £15 £3
Im IN LOVE with this! Wore it to work today. It's sooo soft.. and it adds a bit of detail to a plain outfit. I might actually go back and get another one.. £3 from £15?! 
Lemme hear you saay BARGAINOUS!!!

 Jumper - Miss Selfridge - £35
This isn't something i usually go for, but for some reason i just had to have this. It reminds me of liqourice allsorts! I thought it was muchos beautiful.
Keep or not to keep?

Necklace - Miss Selfridge - £10

I believe Kath at Pocket Full of Fashion has this.. I saw it. I loved it. I bought it. I had to have it in my life.

Sequinned crop top - Topshop - £36 - £10
One word.
I thought i could pair it with a pair of skinny jeans and some killer heels on holiday.

 Floral Cami - Topshop - £26
I must tell you, however beautifully bright this top is, those straps are a confusing little nightmare.

Heeled Brogue shoe boots - New Look - £20 - £10

 Bodysuit - Primark - £6

Playsuit Pyjamas - Primark - £6

Eee so cute. These are my 'holiday' pyjamas. 

Bikini Bag - Primark - £2/3 ish?

I have another one of these and they're the handiest things you will ever own if you're a fan of the pool/beach (like myself)!

and lastly..
'Well Jel' TOWIE Pyjamas - Topshop - price tag fell off but i believe they were £30 reduced to £15
Ohh SHAAATAAP - was totes chuffed that these were in the sale.
If you're a regular on my blog then you will know i love The Only Way is Essex.
So these PJs were made for me. 
They're amazeballs.

Hope you enjoyed my little clothing haul. It will probably be the last one for a little while (until it gets a bit closer to holiday time) as i need to save so i can afford to actually eat (and drink the odd beverage or two) when i get there!

Apologies about the length of post.
I always worry people hate these type of posts but personally i enjoy reading all the posts that pop up on my reading list no matter how long they are..(i always get comfy and sit and have a 'blog reading sesh'..) I do try and whack a few photos in to make it more interesting :)

Lots of love,
