Spring Clothing Haul

Spring Clothing HaulSummer is almost upon us! Half the year almost gone already, and the sun is finally beginning to shine – even if only once a week or so. I usually have an awful lot of restraint when it comes to clothes shopping. I would love to spend all my money on a ridiculous amount of clothing to fill my non-existent walk-in wardrobe, to wear to non-existent events. Thankfully I have a little more sense than that, however it hasn’t stopped me from purchasing a few items here and there. And so, here is my spring clothing haul!

I’ve been desperate to find a jumpsuit that actually suits me, and I finally found one! I usually end up looking like I’m wearing pajamas, which is fairly unfortunate. I need a tapered leg, and I love a bardot neckline, so this New Look one is perfect. The Quiz prom dress was one of those things that I new I had to have as soon as I set eyes on it; pretty, mid-length, and floaty. And the New Look maxi dress is something very different for me; I’m not used to a low neckline or long length, but I loved it! Sometimes you have to try something a little different.

I’m a sucker for pinafores and floral dresses, as you may have noticed by now. Unfortunately this means I have less basic pieces than I’d like; plain tops, cardigans, trousers etc. My eye just isn’t drawn to them in the same way, so I end up ignoring them completely, then coming to put an outfit together and finding I don’t have what I need. Perhaps in my next haul, I’ll have a few more simple pieces to go under those pinafores, or with my favourite midi skirts. 
Have you had a spring clothing haul of your own?

Have a lovely day,

Clothing Haul: H&M, Miss Selfridge & More


Clothing Haul: H&M, Miss Selfridge & More - Red Lipstick RosieThis weekend my boyfriend and I took a little shopping trip to Exeter. It’s not a big city, but it’s quite beautiful, and has pretty much everything you need in one place. There’s a good range of high street stores, from high end to lower prices, including Zara, H&M, Superdry, Oasis, Topshop, Hollister, and Miss Selfridge. There’s also so many restaurants, including our favourite Nandos (one of only two in the whole of Devon), so we made a nice day of it. Here’s a little haul of what I got!

Primark:

I usually get my basic’s in Primark because it’s cheap, and they have pretty much every basic top or t-shirt you could wish for. I ended up picking up a couple of extras. I got the shoes and top I wanted, but I also found a burgundy pleated midi skirt (how could I say no?!), and they had so many pretty fairy lights, I had a hard time restraining myself. I ended up getting a basic set of fairy lights, and then a pretty set of rose-gold ball lights. I have a mild obsession with fairy lights and various other pretty home stuff.Primark Burgundy Pleated Midi Skirt - Clothing Haul: Red Lipstick Rosie

H&M:

I had some vouchers to spend, so next stop was H&M. Sometimes I really love H&M, and other times I go in there and can’t find a single thing that I like. Luckily this time, I found quite a few things! Our local H&M is sort of divided, with the downstairs being the more sophisticated ‘grown-up’ stuff, and upstairs being a more teen/young adult section (one that I always immediately headed to when I was a teenager). These days I go for both sections, but downstairs there was really nothing for me. My only other problem with H&M is that their sizing is a bit ridiculous, I seem to be one to two sizes bigger there than in any other store.H&M Tartan Pleated Skater Skirt - Clothing Haul: Red Lipstick RosieH&M Black High Waisted Trousers - Clothing Haul: Red Lipstick Rosie

New Look is probably one of my favourite stores, it’s rare I go in there without finding something I want. On this occasion I was hunting for the midi skirt I spoke about it a previous post (read it here), which I couldn’t find in my local store (pretty devastating stuff!). However, I did pick up a pair of black court shoes that I’ve also been searching for. I had a fairly frustrating experience on this shopping trip, as I seemed unable to find a size 4 pair in any shop that had court shoes. So in New Look I tried on a pair of size 3’s, and much to my surprise, they pretty much fitted me! I also tried a different pair of shoes in size 4, and they kept slipping off at the heels, so while the size 3’s are a tiny bit tight, they won’t fall off causing me to break my ankle. Here’s to my ever-shrinking feet!New Look Black Court Shoes - Clothing Haul: Red Lipstick Rosie

Miss Selfridge:

I’m a fairly new convert to Miss Selfridge. I don’t know why I didn’t used to shop in there, because now I want everything they have! It’s so pretty! There was a stunning dress that I wanted, and a crop top and skirt co-ord, which were both sadly out of my price range. I’ll wait for a sale. Talking of which, I found a stunning midi skirt in their current sale, black with a pink and gold floral pattern, it was £22 down from £49, but they had an extra 20% off so it was even less. My kind of deal! Miss Selfridge Floral Pleated Midi Skirt - Clothing Haul: Red Lipstick Rosie

So there is my little haul. I wish shopping trips could occur more often, sadly money is always an object!

Have a lovely day x
