COVETING…

How much I adore these boots from All Saints cannot be sufficiently described with human language. Okay, perhaps that’s taking my love for them a bit too far and seeing as I’m currently writing a blog post on them, it’s pointless trying to say I can’t find any words. But I do love them, very much. They are the Bonny Cuban boots in Taupe, they’ll go with everything, last for yonks and still stay classic. So why am i hesitating you may ask? Because they also come with a £165 price tag. urgh. So close and yet so far.

SPRING HAS SPRUNG HAUL

Spring is finally here in the UK (sort of) so what more excuse do I need to go shopping (on a budget…)?

I’m supposed to be saving my money for university in September, but me being me, I couldn’t stop myself. Although I did refrain from spending close to £70 on a bikini in All Saints and bought on for £4 in Primark instead. How good am I?

Firstly I hit up Primark where I bought these nude studded sandals (£6) and the pale pink printed bikini…

Also in Primark, I bought a bold print midi dress (£10) seen here with some orange leather ballet flats from Topshop (£16) and a zebra print kaftan from H&M (£14.99).

Continuing my search for relatively inexpensive Spring buys, I headed to New look where I found this black and white midi dress, perfect for summer or winter.

And last but certainly not least, I bought this GORGEOUS waistcoat from the limited The New Icons collection by H&M. They only had one left in stock and it was in my size so I think it was just meant to be… It fits like a glove, the intricate beadwork is so detailed it could easily be Balmain. But with a price tag of just £34.99 this is enough to tip me over the sartorial edge. i just had to have it.

ALL SAINTS LOVE

I wish I had enough money to be able to go into All Saints and just buy everything in the store. And I mean EVERYTHING. There is nothing in that shop that I don’t like, in fact I’ve never seen anything in there I wouldn’t buy. It’s my budget that won’t permit this excessive spending in All Saints. One day, one day. Here are my top 11 picks from the current collection. I absolutely love the signature grungy style of All Saints, with a slight gothic twist. Shop at All Saints now.
