Over the past couple of weeks I've picked up a few bits and pieces when I've been out shopping. I found myself the owner of this gorgeous (I think) tartan dress from Dotti. I knew I had to have it after walking past about four times and wanting to have it in my possession asap. I do know that tartan can look a bit tired but I think it's cute and with a nice jacket and boots it will look nice. It was pretty expensive, and I definitely could have waited until it went on sale but no, I couldn't resist. It wasn't so bad though because my sister paid for half of it as we're going to share it! This happens with all of our clothes anyway.
I also picked up a handful of basic t-shirts that I really needed for my wardrobe. Funnily enough, all of these were different sizes so it goes to show how you don't shop for size, but for your body or how big or small you like things. The first shirt is a gorgeous plain white lace shirt I bought from Glassons. I liked it for the detailing in the back and on the arm area. The second shirt is from Dotti which I've been wearing pretty much every day since I got it. It's such a classic shirt that you can basically wear with anything. I am definitely a lover of stripes. The next is a baggy winged sort of style top that is so comfy and just really plain and simple. It looks great over black tights because it's quite long. It's nothing fancy but it was super cheap so I picked it up anyway. The last shirt is from Dotti again (I am loving their stuff at the moment). I loved the eye print on this one and it's the sort of thing you'd just throw on over the top of shorts and go to the beach or a festival in. As I said, I was really just craving some basic shirts that I could chuck on with just about anything.
I also bought a pair of $10 shoes from Rubi Shoes which were a bit disappointing if I'm honest. They're difficult to walk in because the backing by the heel has no support. But they were super cheap so I'll just have to wear them when I know I'm not going to have to do much walking!
I'll definitely be saving up and not buying too many things for the next few weeks, at least. P.S I got back from my holiday today and glad to be in my own bed but wishing for the beach again.
