Massive Collective Haul

Hello everyone! I've literally been meaning to write this haul post for a very long time but I always find it difficult to transpire the products through as few pictures as possible so it's not a gallery. So fingers crossed this one comes across well :) I've purchased these bits over the past month or so, so although it looks like a lot (I know it is I just try to justify it) it has been over a period of time! Anyway I'll get on with it... 

Orange Dress - H&M 
As soon as the H&M sale hit online I was straight on there. This particular dress I actually got a few months back but ended up returning it due to never wearing it, then it turned up in the sale for less than half price. Yes it was a bargain at only £7 and left in my size which is always a bonus. I couldn't help but purchase it again and feel less guilty about the purchase. It's a lovely chiffon floaty material and I don't own anything in this rustic orange colour so it's a lovely addition to my wardrobe.

T-Shirt - Primark
A slightly boring purchase but this is the only thing I purchased when popping into Primark with my mum, weird. It's just a simple grey tee but has a slight edge with black suede sleeves. It's nice and oversized so easy to just chuck on with a pair of leggings on those lazy days. And with this only being £4 you can't really go wrong. They did also have this in other colours too so I may pop back for some others!

Lace Top - H&M
Another H&M sale purchase, recently when I was scouring my wardrobe looking for pretty/girly t shirts.. I just didn't have any!! Shocking! So my hunt started here and this is the first one.. I believe it was £5 in the sale and is a lovely nude pink colour with pretty lace detailing at the top. It also has scalloped edges on the sleeves which I think is a nice little touch. I think it can be dressed up or down which I love about this.

Floral Jeans - Monsoon
Another work purchase, as soon as I saw these jeans first thing in delivery I loved them. Ditsy floral print is such a summer staple that never seems to die out. There quite a thin denim which is also nice for summer and teamed with a plain top I think this is a staple. I believe these are £45 but are amazing quality.

Lace Dress - H&M
Another H&M sale buy, again I've had my eye on this dress for a long while so was pleased to see it go into the sale. To be honest I can't remember the exact price but either £7 or £9 comes to mind. Everybody needs a LBD and here's a new addition to mine. It's got lovely lace panels on the sides and another one at the back which is lovely. Also it's a nice length, not to short, not to long = bonus!

Tye Dye Dress - T K Maxx
My first trip to T K Maxx happened a couple of weeks ago with my sister and definitely found some good bargains! This is also my first midi dress, it was a good day of firsts. I absolutely love this one! It's a lovely print, black and white, and a lovely length. It's also a thin fabric for summer and not too restricted. I believe this was £12.99 which is an absolute bargain and I know I will get lots of wear out of this. I'll definitely be going back!

Coral Dress - T K Maxx
Another one of my purchases from T K Maxx is this gorgeous coral dress, I could not believe my eyes when I read the price tag, are you ready? This was £8!!! Yes it was a steal! It has a lovely lace detail peter pan collar which I love and again I don't own a dress in a coral colour so is another lovely addition to my wardrobe. This will be perfect for a night out and I honestly cannot wait to wear it :)

Purple Jumper - H&M 
Guess where this is from, ha ha! H&M sale is genius. I already have one of these jumpers in a lovely orange colour so when they then got reduced in the sale I grabbed this one. It was reduced to £7 which is again a bargain and it's such a gorgeous colour. It comes up rather neon in the picture and it is rather bright but maybe just not that bright! It's perfect for summer as it's light weight, 3/4 sleeves and neon colours seem to be everywhere this summer.

Star Midi Skirt - Topshop 
The Topshop sale was also pretty decent but I managed to stop myself and only purchase the one thing! But I have honestly wanted this skirt for such a long time but always thought it was rather pricey. So when it was reduced to £12 and then the woman asked if I was student and gave me the discount anyway meant it was only £10.80! I absolutely love stars so this is right up my street. It's a simple grey midi with black stars dotted all over. I think this can be dressed up or down with a nice crop top.

Lace Socks - Topshop
I went slightly sock crazy in Topshop, you'll see just why slightly further down. These were 3 for £8 but somehow I managed to get 4, ha ha, I couldn't choose between the colours. I got a nice pale blue, olive green, coral and lemon yellow. Perfect for summer with converse or the other thing down below... keep reading ;)

Floral Bando - Accessorize
I've been seeing many bloggers with floral crowns recently which I love on certain people but don't think I would like them on myself and don't want to take the plunge. So I opted for a slightly more subtle one from Accessorize. I believe this is around £8 and is just so summery I think it would look lovely with so many different outfits. It includes so many different colours and types of flowers which I love and it's noticeable but still quite subtle at the same time!

White Floral Bag - Asos
My beautiful beautiful bag... Isn't it just so god damn pretty. Browsing the Asos sale and coming across this pretty was the highlight of my day and it was half price!! At only £17.50 I couldn't resist buying it! It's a lovely size, has a longer strap and shoulder straps the only thing I'm scared about it getting the white dirty! Ha ha :)

T Bar Shoes - Topshop
I love these... first time I looked they sold out in my size but I was patient and persistent and as soon as they came back into stock I ordered them so fast! They are so adorable and these are the reason to the sock craziness above! Just imagine these shoes with those pretty lace socks, aaahhh it's to die for! I cannot wait to wear these with cute dresses etc, they just make me so excited! They were only £30 as well which for a pair of shoes is pretty reasonable if you ask me.

Make up - Boots
Recently Boots had a buy one get one half price offer on all make up so I took advantage and purchased these goodies. I got a Rimmel Salon Pro nail varnish in Barmy Blue which I have already reviewed, Maybelline Super Stay 24hr concealer, Collection white eyeshadow and Rimmel lipstick in Notting Hill Nude. All things I've wanted to try/needed for a while so thought it was a good time to take the plunge. I'll do full reviews soon :)

Lipsticks - Accessorize
Sale has hit at work and I found these beauties in the 70% off section and all for just £1.50 each! What a bargain I couldn't then resist to only get one shade so picked up three. From left to right I got: Velvet Pink, Vintage Rose and Coral Crush. They're all so pretty and summery and lovely additions to my small but growing collection of lip sticks. I haven't properly tried these out yet but for the price tag I can't complain too much yet and cannot wait to test these out in the coming summer days as I can see them being perfect!
Phew I've picked up a lot, he he! But all necessary of course ;) I hope you enjoy reading and seeing what I've purchased over the past month. I'd also love to have a nosey at your latest haul posts if you have any so leave them below as I love reading hauls! I'll speak to you all soon! XO
