recent purchases

hello everyone! hope you're all very well today!
first day of summer and the first time we've had sunshine in ages! nevertheless, apart from going for a run with my little big sis janelle, i spent my day sorting out my wardrobe and putting into it all the new clothes i've bought recently. i've learnt that if you're trying to fit more clothes onto one hanger (there's like 2 things in my wardrobe that have a hanger each :P) for example skirts. hang the skirts upside down and more of them fit on! try it ;) oh also today i went to the post office to post my giveaway winners items! so they should be with you soon :)
today i decided to show you all my recent purchases! long overdue but i was waiting for h&m to deliver some stuff and it finally came!
Photobucket
technically i didn't buy this because my sister is amazing :P bodysuits by siobhan. available from her website in various designs and patterns. supercomfortable and perfect for summer with pretty much anything!
Photobucket
pink and blue bodycon skirts - h&m. janelle bought these a while back and she never ever wears them! so i decided to take them off her hands free of charge ;)
Photobucket
wedges- office. siobhan bought a pair of these and i fell in love with them so she kindly bought me a pair as well :D they're so comfortable and light because of their espadrille sole but also a love nautical design in the great british colours-perfect. 
Photobucket
haha look at my toe in this one :P 
trousers - vera moda at asos. 
Photobucket
i really wanted a pair of chino-ey type trousers for a while but i couldn't find any that i really liked until i came across this pair and i instantly liked them. they were only £28 so pretty good for trousers and you can feel the quality in the fabric, they're really soft as well and quite different to most other pairs i've seen. 
Photobucket
vintage skirt - dirty blonde
Photobucket
i found this little beauty in this fab little vintage store on brick lane. the fabric is almost chiffon with a purple underlayer and i hadn't seen anything like it before. i love the colours and i knew i definitely needed it for my summer wardrobe!
also, the man in dirty blonde actually asked me to model for the dirty blonde asos shop which will be really good fun so i'll let you know what happens there! :)
Photobucket
plain black bodycon skirt - h&m
Photobucket
a girl can never have too many bodycon skirts was my reasonings for buying this. i have a similar one in navy blue and a frilly one in black but i didn't have plain black. i thought it would be good for college and more formal things and for £3.99 i thought it was quite a good deal! 
Photobucket
vintage levi's-the vintage store.
i love the really vintage look to these, the acid wash black really does it for me and i saw them when i was poor, so had to go back for them! i noticed my bum looks so weird in this photo, (i'm at a weird angle i promise!) it looks like it's been photoshopped :S but try and ignore it and look at the beauty of the shorts haha :P
Photobucket
i noticed when i was flicking through my photos that it looked like i was walking so i decided to make this little animationy thing for you. pretty cool i think! don't ignore little piana in the background though ;)
Photobucket
playsuit - h&m
Photobucket
apart from taking 3 weeks to be delivered (and i paid £4 for delivery!) i was really pleased when i received my new playsuit! it's really cute and i love the pattern. very comfy and the material is soft - bonus!
Photobucket
dress - h&m
Photobucket
i love the pattern on it, there were 3 different designs and these dresses sold out in literally minutes when they went down in the same to £3.99! the gorgeous fritha louise from the fish tank, has the yellow version of it - check it out.
Photobucket
initially i wanted the yellow version but it sold out, so i decided to go for this white flowery version instead and i'm really glad i did because it's lovely. it's really lightweight and i like that it's really floaty.Photobucket
baseball jacket - rokit 
Photobucket
i've been wanting baseball jacket for ages but i wanted to get one that no-one else would have and also that had proper leather sleeves!

Photobucket
then, i found this diamond tucked away at the back of rokit, priced only at £25! i wanted one that had an r on it but i couldn't find one so i decided to go for this one, which won me other with the amazing exclamation mark on the back. once i put it on and i felt the silky soft lining i knew i had to have it, and although it might be a little warm for summer, i know i'll wear it all year round ;)
----------------------------------------------
and there you have my recent buys! i'm sure i'll probably have more to add to this :P but for now, i hope you've enjoyed reading and have a lovely week! ronan xxx

  21. Wow those are some great purchases Ronan!!!
    The baseball jacket is amazing! I always think the staff in Rokit are a bit bitchy but they do have some amazing stuff there. That bodysuit is fab too... I'm gonna bookmark her store so I can have a look when I have some pennies. I want those levies shorts... My black ones have been washed to greenness now lol.
    And DAYUM girl... your figure is actually perfect, well jel <3 xx
    P.S. buy the long johns!!!! Even if you just wear them at home they're worth it.
