Summer Haulin’… Happened so fast.

By | July 4, 2011

Hi my bellas! I thought I’d do a haul post about all the bits I got over the weekend. I visited Lakeside mall for the first time & it reminded me so much of the American malls – it even had a Taco Bell. If you know me then you know how much I LOVE Mexican food… & yes, I did stuff my face! I didn’t intend on buying much at all… But it all sort of just… Happened? Here are most of the bits I got! (I’ve missed out the boring stuff like tank tops, hair bobbles etc.)

Rings: £2Earrings: £2.50Bracelet: £3

All of these gems were from Primark. I love going there for accessories because they’re super cheap & I never feel bad if they break/get lost/go out of fashion… they hardly break the bank, so you can always go back for SECONDS!

Wedges: £35 from Oasis (on sale)

I wore these to work today & they are SO comfy! I thought I’d get a tan colour as they’d go with pretty much everything I’d wanna wear them with :)

Zara Shoes: £20 (on sale)

 I can’t even begin to explain just how comfortable Zara heels are!! These may look crazy high, but they’re so easy to walk in. I can’t wait to wear them out :)

Primark Top: £8

I’m sure everyone has either seen these tops or owns a few. The material isn’t too great or anything but they’re perfect for summer & to take on your holiday! I got the mustard colour as I don’t really own anything mustardy.

Primark Blouse: £10

I seem to love blouses so I picked this up. But mainly because I love the colour & the buttons on it…

Primark Top: £8

This is a super simple top & I can pretty much get away with wearing it almost everywhere!

Primark Maxi: £5 (on sale)

I couldn’t resist this maxi which was on sale for ONLY £5!! I’m surprised there were loads of these still there – I’m glad there was one in my size though :)

I love the back, how it ties, & also the detail at the front. You can’t really go wrong with £5!

Topshop (Yuki) Top: £27.50 (on sale)

I was only meant to go into Topshop to return a few bits bit ended up coming out with this cute top. I doesn’t look great on the hanger but it looks great on! You could even use it as a cover-up on holiday!

I love the paisley pattern on the front and back. The material as also super light & cooling – I’m so wearing this during the summer!

Primark Denim Jacket: £12

I always get stuck on what to wear on top of maxi dresses but figured I’d get this denim jacket as it will go with all the maxi dresses/skirts I have :)

Primark Palazzo Trousers: £12

I’ve seen these everywhere but didn’t think much of them to be quite honest… then I tried these babies on & ended up getting a pair in white AND black!!

I really like how you can see the shorts underneath! The material is super light, you’d have to be real careful when walking & what not as I reckon it can rip easily.

Topshop Jeans: £15 (on sale)

I basically ordered these online & LOVED them!! So as soon as I saw another pair in the shops, I snapped them up. I’m the kind of girl that when I find a pair of jeans/trousers that fit & look great – I end up living in them. These are basically my ‘BACK-UP PAIR‘.

I especially love the little detail work around the knees & the zips at the bottom of them – they give it that rock-chick edge to them. Also the colour is fab! Not quite seen anything like it before & nor do I own jeans in this colour either.

Jumpsuit: £23

I love playsuits and jumpsuits. I can’t remember the name of the shop but managed to find this there. It’s super sheer so need to figure out what to do about that, other than that it’s the most comfortable jumpsuit I own! I’m gonna wear this with lots of ACCESSORIES to dress it up :)

Topshop Blush in 'Head Over Heels': £6

I couldn’t leave without getting some sort of make-up. Considering the fact that my local Topshop barely do make-up I thought I’d give this a go. The colour was the one that struck me the most.

I’ve started to love liquid & cream blushers recently (& of course I love a bit of coral). It’s super smooth and easy to apply. It’s not creamy or oily on your skin which is what I love about most about this…

Once blended, it’s almost powder like. I have a feeling I’ll be wearing this a lot this summer with Hoola as a slight contour.

PHEW, that was a lot of pictures!! I didn’t realise I bought so much stuff until I got into the car… I always say that I’m going on a shopping ban. But quite frankly, I can’t seem to do it so I’m not even going to bother :) What have you bought recently?? Have you hit the sales yet?

P.S – I totally hit 1000 FOLLOWERS!! This is such a mile stone!!! I am actually over the moon :D You’re all such angels – lots of love to you all! I will celebrate by doing a small giveaway very, very soon!

      Primark can be lethal at times – you don’t realised when you’re putting stuff in your bag & then you get to the till & your eyes almost pop out when you see the total! LOL x

    • Kaushal

      I’m glad I’m not the only one, hehe :) thanks my lovely xx

  • Amanda

    These all look great!! I love your tan wedges.. where did you get them from? Is your jumpsuit a bit baggy at the middle part? as mine is a bit baggy but it doesn’t bother me.. just want to know whether they’re all made the same as it looks very similar to mine. I got it off :) x

    • Kaushal

      Thanks doll – they’re from Oasis in the sale. Erm, its not very baggy no, it’s super comfy. I’d probably wear it with a waist/hip belt? But it doesn’t bother me either – just need to figure out what to do with the sheerness of it though LOL x

  • Gwen

    This is one awesome haul! :D

    • Kaushal

      Thanks hun!

  • Safiyya

    • Kaushal

  • Abier

    Just realised I could comment on your blog without needing a blog site :$ Heh!
    Great haul, I love the tan wedges and the Primark jewellery (I’ve never actually properly looked at their jewellery section, but I might check it out, now!). The Topshop blush looks gorgeous. I used to always use my housemate’s Topshop Loose Powder Blush in Rosy but I might finally buy my own one!
    I’m going to Westfield on Thursday and can’t wait to hit the sales (just got my deposit back from my house at university so I plan to treat myself :P)!
    Congrats on the 1000 followers! xxx

    • Kaushal

      Oh my gosh!! You need to check their accessories more often – you can always find something good there for really cheap :) LOL I’m super impressed with the Topshop blushes. I’m deffo gonna be keeping an eye out for more colours in the future :) Thanks so much doll xx
