Autumnal Haul: Primark, New Look & Long Tall Sally


Today's post is an autumnal haul - now the weather's changing, we have to stock up on more transitional or cosy items. The good thing about living in a country where the seasons change is that we get more opportunities to shop! :D
   In this haul, I will show you what I have bought, and how I would wear it.
When I was on holiday in Devon during the summer, we went to Exeter for the day, where there was a Primark, and of course I HAD to go in!
   To start off, one of the things I bought was a beautiful pair of pinstripe white-green denim dungarees with bronze-coloured buckles and buttons, which I'm pretty sure was only £12.
   The white tshirt I also bought from Primark, and a black version that has a small pocket.
    When I saw them on the rack, I fell in love with them immediately! They are very versatile too - perfect for summer with a short sleeved top and converse (which I wore the dungarees with in the next photo), and for when the weather gets colder, add a longer top and tights.

The next thing I bought from Primark was an oversized graphic minion tshirt, perfect for lazy days. And I really love despicable me...

I love it; it's very comfy and slouchy and super super soft.

   As I went back to school earlier this month, I needed some more bits and bobs for school, like a pencil case and a new bag.
 I am using one of Primark's makeup bags as my pencil case because they're very large, so they can fit in lots of stationery. I also got some more frilly socks - you can never have too many pairs!
I actually got two bags from Primark, a blue one that is in a different photograph further down, and this dark purple and black one. This is because the blue bag was my favourite, but if I have a day when I have a ton of heavy books, i will use the other as its larger. There is also a detachable tablet case inside the bag.

The blue bag from Primark is in the photo below.

Next, I bought things from New Look Tall, because I am 5"11 and a half.
 I got a really nice pair of monochrome houndstooth leggings that are super stretchy, long and comfy. I have worn them so much already! My current favourite outfit includes the leggings, the black top from Primark, a black jacket and my new Chelsea booties. I love my boots so much and I know I will get tons of wear out of them.
Next from Newlook Tall, I bought some soft burgundy leggings, which I have paired with my Chelsea boots (newlook), denim shirt (newlook a couple of years ago) and grey snood (also newlook)  - can you tell I like Newlook?
I have more navy jeans than lighter ones, so I purchased some light skinny ones too...
I am wearing them with the black Primark top, my boots and a snood from River Island.

Last but not least, I got my hands on a pair of harem pant style trousers in a green and black tile print, which I really, really like.
 I am wearing them with some red canvas shoes from shoe zone and a black tshirt from h&m which is several years old...
 ...and I also added some bangles from River Island which gives the outfit quite an ethnic feel.

The last place I got clothes from was Long Tall Sally.
   I really love the colour grey at the moment, so I purchased some grey marl leggings. They are very thick and good quality, and will keep me warm in the colder months.
I am wearing them with an oversized top and and a thick navy jumper. I like layering clothes, and autumn is the best time to do that!

To end this haul, I bought some jogging bottoms (also grey marl) from Long Tall Sally. They have lots of length in the legs which is great, and the waist is easily adjustable as it is a drawstring tie. I am wearing them with blue canvas shoes from shoe zone.

So that is everything I have purchased over the last couple of months. I really like everything I have got, and I hope you have enjoyed reading and looking at this post, as it took so long to put together.

Watch this page, more posts will be coming soon :)
