To contradict my last post about being a recovering shopaholic, I thought I’d fess up to the fact that I’ve done some shopping and picked up a few new bits which I’m loving at the moment!
First up is a new bag which I briefly discussed in my post about our time at Kuta Beach, there was a Kate Spade ♠️ store in the Kuta Beachwalk shopping centre (definitely have a wander in there if you’re in the neighbourhood – amazing shopping!) that I’d clocked and wanted to visit before the news broke about Kate’s unfortunate passing. Although she sold the business a few years back, I really felt like I needed to go into the store and appreciate the amazing brand she had established – not with the intention of buying anything, but that soon changed!
The bag caught my eye straight away and reminded me of a similar coloured, deep plum bag I bought from Topshop a couple of years which I’d revamped after the faux leather strap on it had started to fall apart. So to up my handbag game (and ever growing collection of designer bags) I was drawn to this like a moth to a buzzing lightbulb.
It was on offer and had 50% off so worked out to be about £177 and as I stood there pondering, Aaron made my decision a lot easier when he offered to go halves with me. How could I not?! I’ve inserted a link above, but unfortunately I couldn’t find this colour on the U.K website.
This beautiful skirt has already had a load of compliments on Instagram, so it’s only fair I share the deets!
This was a spur of the moment purchase from ASOS – as the weather is absolutely glorious in the U.K. at the moment, I was mooching around for some bits I could wear that wouldn’t make me feel like I’m boiling alive. And at just £8, how could I not?!
I bought it in a XS as I’ve dropped a bit of weight from all the walking we did in Bali (my body was wondering wtf was going on 😂) and I was a bit dubious as to whether it would fit, so was happy when I yanked it up and the zip went up without a hitch!
I just really liked this – I don’t have an excuse for buying it other than I liked it and thought it would look great with the skirt 😂
But it’s a beautiful cardigan which is perfect for draping over your shoulders when there’s a bit of breeze or chill in the summer mornings.
I think we can all agree that if you have a tan, you need something bright white to show it off! I also thought this would look perfect with the other two things I picked up so… and I don’t know about you, but I’m always in need of some new basics – especially white things as I have a knack for making them go grey in the wash 😉
And that’s it! Well… for now 😉 I’m hoping to do another discount fashion shopping haul so drop me any companies you’d like me to review for the series in the comments below!
