Recent Purchases: Fashion Buys

About two weeks ago, when the weather changed from 18 degrees to 30 I realised I had a big dilemma on my hands. I had no clothes. I'm talking summer clothes. Since losing about 3 stone since last summer all of my clothes fell to the floor as soon as I put them on.

Before I show you what I bought, I have to admit that I am a guilty buyer. Yes, I didn't buy too much and it wasn't too expensive so why I was sat last night with guilt oozing out of me I don't know.
Soulcal @ Republic 'Vintage' Crop Top - £9.60
I tried this on in the shop to see what it looked like, not really thinking too much of it as I carried it to the changing rooms. 5 mins later and it's mine! I bought this in the sale as Republic is closing down where I live so it's worth a look in there at the moment.
ASOS Vest in Oversize - £9 (link)
I bought this in hope that it would look like the image on the website..alas, no. I tried it on when it arrived and it is much more like a dress/tent. Word of advice, size down when buying oversized items of clothing. I'll probably wear this either on it's own or with a pair of shorts underneath.
Primark @ ASOS Floral Skater Dress - £13 (link)
Isn't it pretty? I bought this off ASOS's website but you can buy it in store in Primark. The only reason I bought it online is because I really cannot be bothered to rummage through the rails to find my size in store. Lovely dress, one of which my Mum reckons I should wear to a wedding next year abroad. We'll see Mum, we'll see.
New Look Printed Trousers - £16.99
I've been wanting a pair of printed trousers for a while and these ones are perfect for summer. They're lightweight and have a slim fit - I can see myself wearing these a lot of the next couple of months!
New Look Floral Cami Top - £12.99 (link)
This is the perfect top for me during this weather. It's very lightweight, floaty and you don't have to worry about which bra to wear with it as the back is high up disguising it. Also it isn't see-through, hooray! Well worth £12.99.
New Look Floral Skater Skirt - £12.99
I was really sad when I realised that none of my skirts fitted me anymore so I jumped on this when I saw it. It's just the right length so you needn't worry when you bend over and it looks nice with pretty much everything.
River Island Wedge Cut Out Trainers - £10 (link)
I bought these last night for £15 in the sale and now they've gone down in price - grrrr. Hopefully they'll be worth it!

What have you bought lately?
