What I've Been Buying In July & WIWT Day 4

Gosh this last month has whizzed by hasn't it?!!!  Now one of these months this post is going to be blank & I can smugly say my halo is shining, but sadly this month isn't that month because of course there has been the odd purchase or two!!!  

So here's the run down of my new additions starting with this striped sweatshirt dress from H&M which is super easy to wear, comfy & of course striped so really was a no brainer!

As was this crossover jumper from H&M.  I love this style of top & it's such a delicate shade of grey perfect for teaming with summer denim.

Another stripy dress with this one from Gap, which as soon as I saw it was available in my favourite shade of red meant only one thing.  Plus it's going to be perfect for throwing on of a morning & heading down to breakfast on holiday & equally looks fab teamed with my denim jacket for cooler days too.

Of course I've already confessed to this sequin jacket from Zara, which will probably not get worn on a regular occasion but will be great for having in my wardrobe to bring out over the coming years.

Now my inner magpie couldn't resist these jewelled sandals.  Totally bling-tastic & a perfect nod to the slider trend without being too clumpy.  Again these have been saved & packed for the hols :-)

Another thing I've already admitted to purchasing & had it's first outing on a recent girls night out is this stunning clutch from ASOS.  I'm totally in love with all things this shade of pink right now & this baby was one of the first things to be packed for sunnier climates!

I just couldn't resist this bit of holiday arm candy, including a bracelet in hot pink to match my ASOS bag!.

And finally my Mango leather sandals, which I've already worn loads & quite frankly wondered how I ever managed without.  In fact I love them so much I'm tempted to get them in the tan version too!!

Finally here's what I plan on wearing today whilst on holiday!


Cream Embroidered Dress

Necklace - Michal Golan $90
Bracelet - Michal Golan $70
Sandals - Mango £29.99


Beach Look

Flip Flops - Accessorize £15


Hot Pinks

So what do you think.  Have I been relatively controlled this month or is my halo so dim from another month's fail that you can't see the outline?!!!

Please tell me I'm not the only one to have made the odd purchase or two?!!!!
