My first haul!

So today I did a little haul...whoops!

I took a little trip into nearby Hull city centre for a meet up with my friend (who has recently discovered she's preggo, not broody at all...), and a little shopping trip to treat myself after all the hours at work I've done recently.

I LOVE autumn/winter fashion - it's my favourite time of year as I nothing more than snuggling up in cosy jumpers and fuzzy socks. I don't really have much of a summer wardrobe as I cannot stand the heat and I'm loyal to my porcelain skin so I was super excited to add some new bits and bobs to my all year round cosy wardrobe!

I headed to H&M and (surprisingly) Primark today and picked up these beauties!


After a yummy slice of carrot cake accompanied by a long overdue gossip and a grande Starbucks latte, we took a wander into H&M first. 
I was really impressed by the collections in there at the moment, so many khaki and plum shades that I will be sure to incorporate into my wardrobe at the next opportunity! 

I am loving monochrome at the minute, so my eyes were quickly drawn to this black and white striped lightweight oversized jumper. The super soft fabric sold me on this, and it's such a lovely shape - I picked it up in a size 6 and it's still lovely and oversized! I'll wear this with black ripped jeans and my brown loafers...oh and of course a smudge of bright red lipstick to finish!

After next browsing the accessories section, I fell instantly in love with this light brown and black snood! Suitable for wear with a light jacket but still thick enough for those full on winter days, this is perfect and definitely one of the best things I have bought in a while! I have not taken it off since I purchased as it is keeping me so snug <3

I also picked up this lovely triple pendant necklace! I used to have an obsession with costume jewelry, and have so many big statement necklaces but have recently fallen out of love with chunky jewelry, especially since becoming engaged - my beautiful engagement ring is accessory enough! But this pretty necklace was so dainty and quirky at the same time, I just had to buy. Plus it was a complete bargain and looks great with my stripey jumper!

The other place we ventured into was Primark. I have always had a love-hate relationship with Primark over the years...all of my friends dressed head to toe in it and looked fabulous yet whenever I'd go, I'd find zilch!

Today I went in with an open mind and ready to give it one more chance and I was not disappointed! I was in jumper heaven, and their bag selection was on point!

It's only downfall was the shoe department but purely for the fact that the pair of shoes I wanted (an adorable black t-bar pair) were sold out in my size.

My best find of the day was this grey jumper and white shirt combo. An absolute steal, it will look great with my large specs and black jeans! I'm loving collars at the minute so to combine it with my love of jumpers too was fabulous! It's super soft too, definitely one of the better quality products that Primark has to offer.

Again, I then ventured over to the accessories department, and found these adorable frilly socks in every colour imaginable for only £1.50! I went for a khaki green and a soft blue. I also picked up the white laser cut purse which was an absolute bargain, and looks far more expensive and totally fits in with my love of monochrome! 
I also thought I'd give the underwear another try after seeing this beautiful set. Not sure on the fit as of yet because buying bras is not something that comes easy to me but it was so beautiful and so cheap that I just had to buy and try!

I'm so happy with my haul, and with another shopping trip planned on Thursday (this time York), I'll be sure to update you with my future purchases! Leave me a comment and let me know what you think, and what your autumn/winter essentials are.

Always, Alice x

  5. Such a cute selection. I love the jumper and lingerie set from primark!
    I always like the summer weather and not having to pile on a load of clothes but then the autumn collections come out and every year I start getting excited for things to wear. I probably buy clothes the most around this time of year :)
