Recent buys and how to style them

I've made a few bargainous (yeh I've just made that up I think) purchase's over the last month or so, so I thought I'd bring them together in a blogpost with some advice on how I'd style them too. 
You are welcome! ;)

Lets start...

Green wrap blouse

I got this blouse in the H&M sale for £10.99. It is also very popular on Instagram in a dress form. The print and colour is beaut and very flattering. A great spring/summer buy. unfortunately its out of stock but is still available in the polka dot print here. 
Also, here is another alternative along with the kind of outfit I would style it with.

Top- New Look // Jeans (That I've also bought recently)- H&M // Bag- Topshop // Wedges- Topshop.

Polka dot wrap dress

This one I LOVE. Also from H&M (in fact most of what I've bought, is from H&M) and I had a voucher so I got it for £14.99 but is still only £19.99 which I think is a great price. This dress would be fab in summer for weddings or parties. Now I would size up, possibly TWICE because it can be very "booby' even if you don't have much tit, it will show them! I'd wear a black lace bra underneath as its a nice feature added to the neckline. I'd style with these items below for an evening- keeping it classic and simple. For daytime flat sandals in tan or black and denim jacket or white shirt tied at the waist. It would even look great with black high top converse or Doc martens and leather biker jacket or shacket for a festival  look. An all round great dress IMO.
Also  a bold red lip or pinky/corally colour (for me personally).

Dress- H&M // Bag- Mango // Shoes- ASOS // Lipstick- H&M.

Leopard blouse

Ok so everyone should probably own at least one leopard item. In this case I'm going with the leopard blouse. This one is from H&M at £19.99. I like it because it is long with a peplum hem which gives you options on how you want to wear it. I think out would be better for a more casual look with a flat mule and tucked in for a more dressed up style. 

*Tip* If you feel confident enough wear a black lace bra underneath and undo one more button than you usually would to add a subtle sexiness to the look and to make it  less "work like". And also add a bag with colour i.e. red or green.

Blouse- H&M (Grrr this particular blouse is not available now, its available in floral here or some similar leopard blouses here and here  // Jeans- Topshop // Bag- Mango // Boots- Topshop

Green jumper

I appreciate that we probably shouldn't be buying chunky knits in april but tbh I wouldn't buy this in the winter anyway as I wouldn't have a coat to go over it and I hate feeling all stuffy and heavy. So, I see this as a spring item as I would wear it with no coat and jeans and mules on those chilly spring days. Its gorge and oversized and in the sale for £17! 

Jumper- River isand // Jeans (as above)- H&M // Shoes- Topshop // Sunglasses (not available now but some similar)-  H&M.

Blue sweatshirt

I'm not sure if you know but I LOVE a sweat top. They're so comfortable and quite versatile I think. You literally could wear a sweat top with a pair of jeans or a leather skirt and it would still work in that effortless way.
I usually go for grey or black but I really loved this colour for spring/summer and it would look so good against a tan!
I'm looking to style mine with jeans, trench and high top converse (when I get some new ones).

Ps. I did also buy it in grey ;)

Trench coat- New Look (currently £10 off) // Sweatshirt- H&M // Jeans- H&M // Converse- Office (cheapest I could find them plus free delivery).

So thats it. Looking forward to spring/summer so I can switch up my wardrobe a bit and get out of my winter slump. I might even wear a bra again lolz! 

I hope you've enjoyed the post and thanks for reading! x
