Last week, Bluestripedsquare was a very lucky gal who friggin passed her final University module! So, my Mum decided to treat us to a girly day out in Liverpool and spoilt me rotten with some lovely new things.
Do you want to see what I got? Who am I kidding?
Of course you do!
Prepare for a photo heavy post, mwahaha!
|Skirt, New look|
|Close up of print|
The first item I got was this gorgeous skirt from New Look. It channels the 70's vibes quite nicely, I feel. It's quite a bold print for me and is definitely taking me out my comfort zone with the colours! I naturally vere towards darker shades like black/grey/blue, so it'll make a nice change to pop this skirt on.
My mum made me BIN the shoes I was wearing once I'd bought these. Pretty OTT but the pumps I was wearing had totally fallen apart tbf...
|Airbrush Concealer, Clinique. Available from Boots.|
This is the absolute baby of my makeup routine. Sadly mine had run out not long ago and I figured I'd mourned it long enough so I picked up another! Expect a review coming soon...
|Handbag, New Look|
When I saw this I had to have it. It's beautiful purpley colour will work very well with my wardrobe, maybe not so much with my new skirt haha. It's a decent size and has both pockets AND a shoulder strap. YESSSSS.
|Cropped top, New Look|
Again, this top is challenging my style confidence by being a cropped top. I know, I know, its 2015 and crop tops have been all over this Summer, but it still makes me nervous having my tummy on show. I like this one because it's a little bit longer (still cropped), so its a nice step in to challenging my nerves. I think it'll look great with some jeans and my new boots!
|Black top, New Look|
Finally, another black top! This one is nice and simple with a little bit of decoration at the bottom. I intend to match it with my jazzy skirt, tights and a cute necklace.
I hadn't realised before, but I really had a good shop in New Look!
What do you think about my buys? Any tips for outfits?
p.s. I've not included prices as I was strictly told not to look at them by my Mum. What a cutie!
