There’s nothing better than having a free day, and decide to wonder to the shops without anything in mind or a specific aim. This is when you can really take your time, have a look around and buy things you might not usually look twice at. I never usually buy jewelry for myself. Don’t ask me why, it’s just not something I would take the time to look at in a shop, but last week when I was aimlessly wondering around Forever21, I found some really pretty accessories that I wouldn’t usually pick out for myself.
Firstly, I picked up this silver necklace. The single strand dangling from the end is actually really long, which is what made me like it most. When wearing a top with the necklace, the low strand almost gives the illusion of wearing a chain harness – only without the un-comfort.
Then I grabbed this two pack of earrings. I’ve seen this style of earrings a lot on various blogs, and I’ve been obsessed. If you’re not sure what style I’m talking about, its where the bulk of the earring drops behind the ear and is visible just underneath the lobe. Basically, its a reverse earring. It may be a momentary trend, but I find the look very elegant and I am looking forward to the next opportunity I can take them for a spin!
Ah pretty underwear… is there any other way to make a gal happy? I am not a fan of padded bra’s. Never have been, never will be. I find these under-wire bra’s much more comfortable, but man, are they hard to find. Forever21 is probably the best place on the high street to good under-wire bra’s that won’t leave your purse empty, and they’re usually pretty good quality!
Finally, I recently ordered this over-sized double breasted blouse from Mango after seeing it on a blogger (I can’t for the life of me remember who it was)! Once I found it was from Mango, and not a way-out-of-my-price-range designer, I had to buy it. The material is lovely, and the black piping gives an elegant touch BUT I have to say, over-sized is an understatement. I bought the blouse in a size 8 (small) and it was literally falling off me. I have sent the top back for an XS (around a size 6), so hopefully, this will be a little more flattering.
So there where some of my small buys from this week. What are favourite bits to treat yourself to? Accessories, homewear, lingerie? Let me know below!
