I was in New Look at the weekend browsing the sale, not really expecting to see anything nice as I rarely shop at New Look anymore due to it's inconsistency; sometimes it can be great whereas other months it will be the complete opposite of my taste. I managed to pick up a white crochet style summer dress as well as a paisley kimono, however when I got to the counter I had to endure the awkward experiencing of having your card declined but being too embarassed to say that you probably just don't have enough money in your account as you've been spending it all on paninis. My mum ended up running in to save the day and buying the kimono, which I've since paid her back for, but then she ended up paying for my tickets to see Klaxons (cue excited sceams) and when you're in debt with your mum, that's really not a great place to be. I've got money of my own, but I'm meant to be saving up for Doc Martens, but then I thought I could go halves with my dad and then wear them for school, but then I need to pay my mum back for the tickets and there's just so many decisions and so many nice clothes I yearn to own. This is just a (small) collection of all the beautiful things I need. I've definitely been opting for more simple things that you can mix with bigger pieces- for instance buying lots of basic tees to pair with dungarees or simple skirts. I love the 90s vibe that seems to be hovering in the air at the moment: boyish tees, mom jeans (need) and gingham on every piece of clothing in existence. I'm definitely considering getting another pair of t-bars, for a while I was insistent on getting white ones after seeing a girl rocking them in Topshop, but after seeing the black Asos ones on Ellie's blog my mind was opened to the endless possibilties of the t-bar world. They aren't the typical t-bar design, but I definitely love the black leather and classic buckle reminiscient of school days.
I hope you're all enjoying your summer hols. I still haven't achieved much. I went out for a meal at the oh so classy Nandos with two of my friends and am planning a shopping trip which will involve me crying all day due to my lack of funds, as well as a possible sleepover which will involve Netflix and plenty of food. I spent my day today catching up with last night's Made In Chelsea NYC (what has Alex done to make Jamie cry?????). See you soon!
