SPRING HAUL








/      the tale of some rare sale successes and more
















the aftermath of my seasonal wardrobe sprucing. 

if you've been reading e-miwt? recently you might be wondering how i've gained several new items so quickly, considering my 1-3 pieces per month shopping rule. alas, we all have our weak moments and i had several over easter. nonetheless i found some sale treasures i couldn't well leave along with some greatly diverse options that i want to walk through a) to justify my spending and b) to perhaps enable you.






a black jumper is a non-negotiable to me when dressing for everyday. having recently discovered a hole in my only offering, i was hunting down a new update when i came across a warehouse sale option with a whopping discount. unfortunately out of stock now, it has a ribbed finish, round neck and bell sleeves to add some current flair to a classic piece. another piece of knitwear comes in the form of this oasis cardigan, again at a discount. the natural colour and smooth texture reminds me of something from cos and styled with my quay sunglasses they make an old hollywood-esque pairing.

fancier tops are something i was also lacking in my collection. the solution to this shortcoming arrives firstly with this topshop blouse. affordable, simplistic and feminine - it looks lovely with any outfit and works as an idyllic base layer to build any pattern and/or texture upon. my favourite accent is the cropped sleeve to show off beloved watches and wrist jewellery. another comes in the version of a blush pink bodysuit - my first in a long time and a collection of which i hope to grow as i'm delighted they're having another fashion moment. however, the star of my many shopping excursions is a black, belted top from river island that is so diverse it deserves a round of applause. you'll see what i mean come the weekend as it features in an ootd post, along with other items included in this transitional spring-time haul. 


until then...
