February Haul!! Topshop, River island, Miss selfridge, Missguided

So for now I will do February Haul and need to look back at some of the items I have purchased ^^ I think my money has just gone down the drain so quickly because I've had to start paying towards my holiday (which is good!) but it's scary how quick money goes and where it's spent ! (Going to marks has spencer every lunch probably doesn't help) 

Please bare in mind I do get Topshop things with discount/uniform that's the only reason I can afford it (most of our wages do go back into Toppers dammit!) 

Mono floral print blouse / £35 

I had my eyes on this for a while because there's so much you can do with this! I like the floral pattern and worn it so far with my leather trousers, and bright blue coat like so 

Coat (roughly £28) /
Leather trousers £30, All sorts boots £45 
And Blouse £35 / All Topshop 

I love that I can wear this into summer with denim shorts either floaty or done up . I Vary between sizes 10/12 but the 10 fits perfectly on me ^^ 

Floral bomber jacket £50 
Bought this whilst I was in the Westfield White City store and it was love at first sight! 
I'd seen it first online and luckily it looks identical to the photograph however the jacket has a quilted texture which is not to everyone's cup of tea but it is subtle. 
Bought the size 12 and this fits perfectly I think the 10 would have been too fitted otherwise. Can't wait to wear this with black ripped shorts/jeans and a plan jersey tee. 

But for now I wore it like this ! 

Top £19.99 / Missguided (see below for details!) 
Jeans £36, sunglasses £16, Boots £78 and bag £40 / Topshop 
Necklace £5 / Primark 

dogtooth boxy tee £19.99 

I want to also include this top in as well I am In LOVE with this! It's long sleeved and polyester material so I personally think you can wear this for day or night wear, and very easy to dress up or down. The image above with the Topshop jacket is how I would wear it out for the day with some pattern clashing andthe photograph  below is how I would wear it for the evening. 
Ordered it in a size 10 and luckily it fits okay because I can vary from a 10/12. 
They now also have this exact pattern in pale pink as well on missguided it's also very tempting to purchase that one as well! If something works, get loads in different colours ;) 

Okay you got it the photo above is the same outfit as the one with the Toppers jacket but that's because I haven't worn it anywhere apart from going to Westfield! Ha, so I have done an outfit on the floor for you guys: 

Blazer £55, trousers £30, socks £3.50 / Topshop 
Bag £16 / MissSelfridge 
Necklace £5 / Primark 

I look forward to wearing this more and hopefully I will purchase the shorts to make a co ord seriously loving them at the moment will post a photo if I'm successful :) 

Miss selfridge
'STYLIST' tee / £14

There was no hesitation with this one. I bought the size 14 because I wanted this baggy and longer in length because it is cropped (cropped tees when working in retail aren't always practical especially when you can reaching up for things!). 
I also like that the slogan is covered in a felt-like material so it should last longer in the wash compared to inked slogans that just fade over time.
Worn this already over a tartan dress and leather jacket like so 

Necklace £5.99 / Newlook 
Belt (came with trousers) / River Island
Dress £35 and socks £3.50 / Topshop 
Boots £37.99 / Missguided 
Leather jacket / TS old 

Looking forward to wearing this over a bikini in the summer and with my sunnies!

bright coral fluffy jumper / was £34 now £25!

If you were thinking of finding this, even though it's been reduced it shouldn't be in the sale as this particular item has just been 'repriced' and not reduced for sale. 
Only bought this last minute because I wanted to wear something nice with my outfit on Valentines day. I was currently wearing that day a floral playsuit from Tophop last year but it was chilly and I wanted to layer up. 
The colour is bright but I do love it and does make any dull outfit striking but still girly. 

How I wore this jumper on Valentines Day. (Used this outfit for my Insta) 

Playsuit / Topshop old 
Blouse / Missguided £17.99
Socks / Topshop £3.50
Boots / EBay £30
Necklace / £5.99 Newlook 
Clutch bag / Newlook old 
Belt / Riverisland came with trousers. 

Another way I wore the jumper.. 

Leather jacket / Topshop old 
Bag £36 / jeans £36/ 'All sorts' boots £45 ---> All current Topshop. 
Necklace £4 / Primark 
Blouse £17.99 / Newlook 

River Island 
abstract leopard floral jacket £45 

Saw a fair few people post this on Instagram and at first I didn't quite know what to think! It's very much marmite In a jacket form and people will either love or hate this! Personally I think the pattern looks better from a far when the colours and detail are out of focus so it appears like a funky colour spring summer jacket. The pattern close up is very detailed and too much for some (see in close up) because there is the combo of colourful flowers and white leopard print sleeves to make it very abstract. Not everyone's cup of tea! 
  But I think if you kept the rest of the outfit simple with a jersey tee and high waisted shorts/jeans then this would look lush! 

Top £7.99 / EBay 
Jeans £40 and necklace £12.50 / Topshop
Skinny belt £2 / Primark 

Last item now.. Another Topshop (my next haul will be more varied I promise!) 

gingham midi skirt £24 

Bought this for a night out and I was impressed! Normally the midi skirts at Topshop are pretty long and almost an awkward length but luckily this sits on the knees and easy to bunch up if you want to make this mini. For £24 I thought this was a fair price and feels good quality. Gingham may not be to everyone's tastes but you can brighten it up or keep it dark like so:

Jacket / Topshop old 
'Andreas' boots / Topshop old 
Velvet top / Topshop Sale
Necklace £22.50 / Current Topshop 
Clutch bag / Newlook old 

Kind of impressed that I only used 1 new item for going out normally I like to buy a whole new outfit! 

So I think that sums up some of my favourite purchases from the past 2 months. I really want to upload a post once a week even if it's something small so watch this space and roll on payday! 

Thankyou for reading ^^ does anyone have any of these items and what do you guys think?
