WHAT I BOUGHT IN THE SALES

I've been really happy with the bargains I've found in the sales this year and I have to admit I've become a complete online shopping addict when it comes to sale shopping, it's just so much easier and less stressful! I had some money from both Christmas and my Birthday to treat myself with and I had a list in mind of things my wardrobe needed so I feel really happy with every purchase and know I'll definitely wear it all (I didn't make any silly impulse sale purchases this year woop!)
River Island Floral Blazer £25
This was the first thing I found when I was browsing the sales in bed on my Ipad on Boxing Day morning and I was a little bit gutted because I had a River Island gift voucher to use but you can't use them online and I didn't realise until I'd gotten to the checkout (grr!) I just loved this so much though that I couldn't not get it and I'm so happy that it's as beautiful in real life as it looked on the website :) This'll be perfect for the spring and summer and I'm looking forward to wearing it with an oversized white t-shirt and black jeans. 
River Island Heart Bracelet £1
I've been looking for an everyday simple bracelet for a while now and when I saw this for just £1 I thought it was criminal not to buy it really! It's such a pretty little bracelet and it hasn't left my wrist since it arrived :) I'm being really careful to not spray any perfume near it so hopefully it won't tarnish/get that horrible green tinge to it too quickly.
River Island Cluster Necklace £2
I used to be all about the chunky statement necklaces but I've gone off of those a little bit recently so wanted some more dainty ones to wear to work. I did think this was going to be on a shorter chain but I wore it for the first time yesterday and absolutely loved it, I think it's a bit more sophisticated than  my old chunky ones and because it was so cheap I might buy a shorter chain for it so I can wear it with more of my tops and dresses :)

Newlook Leopard Print Shell Top £5
Carrying on with my leopard print obsession (as mentioned in my previous post) I thought this top would be lovely with black jeans and a stone cardigan. I bought it in a couple of sizes too big as I wanted a nice loose fit and it's absolutely perfect; I love how it has buttons going down the back and think it's one of those ones that can be easily dressed up or down depending on what you're wearing it for :) 
Newlook Floral Blouse £14
How pretty are the colours on this blouse?! I added it straight to my basket as soon as I saw it! I actually had a different blouse already in my basket but this one just knocked my socks off and I cannot wait to wear it :) I find blouses so easy to wear and think they're perfect for those days when you don't have long to put an outfit together or can't decide what to wear.
Newlook Bangles £2
Something about these bangles just really struck me and I love how you can wear them individually or layered up together. The colours work perfectly with pretty much all of my clothes and I still can't get over them only being £2, I know I'm going to be wearing these all the time!
H&M Nude Jumper £7
This jumper is just the most gorgeous colour and it's so easy to wear; it's a cropped fit but I bought it big so that I can comfortably wear it with high waisted jeans. I wore it for the first time yesterday and I'm so in love with it - H&M have definitely come out on top for knitwear for me this year!
H&M Khaki Green Jumper £9
Green is a colour that I literally never wear but I really don't know why because I think it looks quite nice with my dark hair. This jumper is such a soft and cosy fabric and I know it's going to keep me nice and snug throughout January :)
H&M Mustard Jumper £7
This was the item I was most nervous about ordering online because I've really never been a fan of mustard but I had a crazy moment and thought it would work quite well with my pale skin and dark hair. I wore it to have my hair cut on Saturday and my hairdresser said how much she loved it and I have to admit I'm completely besotted with it; it's actually now one of my favourite things to wear *pats self on back for trying something new* 

I'm hopefully going to do some outfit posts soon to show everything a bit better and I have a couple of things I bought in the sales that I haven't featured in this post because they're going to be in other posts over the next few days, so if you've enjoyed this one make sure you keep an eye out for those ;)

Love Holly xo
