A weekend at the shops

Hello angels, hope you are all well and warm on this cold Sunday! The weather really seems to have become a lot chillier over the past few days, I find myself running to the car in the morning and whacking the heating on full as soon as possible! Fingers crossed for snow though, love how pretty everything looks covered in glittery white : )

This weekend has been one of shopping for me, yesterday with best friend Clare and today with hubby. I managed to pick up some very nice bits and pieces which always puts me in a great mood! Hubby also picked up some t-shirts in Zara so he is a happy bunny too.

Today I wore my new Vero Moda dress with a simple black cardi from H & M, my black Red Herring Chelsea boots and my Mulberry.
First purchase, chain print skirt from Topshop £28. I spotted this online a couple of days ago and was glad I found it today. I love the Versace inspired chain print and the cute gold buttons down the front. I plan to wear this now with black tights and in the summer with a vest top tucked in.
Heart dress £34.99 from Mango. I am completely in love with the new collection at Mango and picked up this cute dress today. I have noticed heart print on so many items recently and love the look, probably as it looks very similar to polka dot which is another favourite print of mine. The coral coloured belt adds a pretty touch of colour.
Swallow print dress from Primark £13. For anyone who has not been into Primark recently, my advice would be have a look now! The Spring/Summer drop has begun and is full of pretty printed dresses at very good prices. When the prices are this good, is there any excuse to wear the same things time and time again??! No siree! I love the print on this dress but was wary as I was worried it would look a bit sack-like, however it is actually very fitted and looks great with tights and boots.
Floral print dress £13 Primark. Love the gorgeous blue and oversized bloom print, the dress has a black belt as well which I removed as it wouldn't lie flat in the photo! Love the pleated bodice of the dress too.
This dress was reduced to £5 in Primark! I really bought it for work but will probably wear it at the weekend as well. Love the pretty purply wine colour and sleeves.
Basic style tops from Mango, both reduced to £9.90 each. As I wear a lot of skirts, I bought these tops to be tucked in, the navy will go well with the Topshop chain skirt I thought.
I couldn't resist a bit of Lush! Lush have their Valentines collection in now which is very cute indeed, I picked up this Frog Prince bath bomb and the toad stool bubble bar. Both smell divine, can't wait to use them!
Well that's about everything for today, I am chilling now after my busy shopping weekend, looking forward to another busy week at work but guess what... only 2 weeks til half term!! : ) XOXO
