Another day, another dollar (spent)

Next Wedges

Primark Sandals

Primark top and fruit necklace

Vero Moda Dress £22, Next Wedges £42

Today I went into school to run a revision session for my GCSE class so I decided to reward myself with a spot of shopping for being such a committed teacher!

First stop, Primark. Primark has been particularly strong this summer, and I was determined to get something today with some kind of fruit motif a la Prada S/S 11. Unfortunately the dress I wanted with a gorgeous oranges and lemons print was not in my size, but I managed to pick up a cute and kitsch gold coloured necklace with little bits of fruit hanging off! I also picked up a couple of tops that will look great with denim cut offs, one of the tops in a cobalt blue particularly pleased me and fits in well with the colour block trend that is so popular this summer. Lastly, I picked up a lovely pair of leather tan sandals, not the kind of thing I would usually wear but I think they will look great with dresses and shorts alike.

By the end of my shopping trip I was feeling pretty pleased with myself: I also managed to grab the last size 8 Vero Moda butterfly print dress as worn in the black and red colour by Chelsy Davy! I like the camel/beige colour I picked up a lot, its nice and summery and will suit lots of different occasions. Lastly today, I found some fab dark brown wedges from Next that are simply classic and will last summer after summer. Pics attached of my lovely new purchases! : )
