Try On Summer Clothing Haul

My wardrobe was lacking in a few essentials for the warm weather, and so over the last few weeks I have been shopping for some new summery items. Everything in this haul is fairly new, so most of it will still be in stores, and what I could find is linked down below.
The majority of my new things are from New Look as it's so local to me and they have some really pretty things in there at the moment! 

So this isn't really an essential, but my height means that beautiful playsuits that are actually long enough (like this one) don't come along often. I mentioned in my previous haul that I really like V necks; I think this V neck wrap is flattering and pretty. It's cut off by a tie in a bow at the back, and I love it!

I live in skinny jeans, especially in the colder weather. This makes it a very unseasonal buy, but when your legs are as long as mine, you gotta buy when you see :) They look almost shiny in the photographs, but they're not, I think it's the glare from my mirror.
One of the only purchases not from New Look was this striped top. I love the black hem along the sleeves and bottom of the top - it adds something else and gives it a slight girly and bohemian feel, too.
I bought the same top but in a floral green print as well. I think it's absolutely gorgeous!
I love ribbed detailing on clothing; the ribs make the crop top so much more interesting with added texture, and the black is a staple that will go with absolutely everything. I think crop tops look super flattering with high-waisted bottoms, which leads me on to... Navy denim shorts that also go with everything. These are really comfy and stretchy like jegging material, and I know I'll be wearing them tons this summer!
I decided to buy the crop top in white too, as it was on sale and is such a basic item.
I am so in love with this last tee - also a V neck - the pattern is so vibrant and bold; this kind of tile/tribal print is quite popular this year. The tassels also make a great feature, to be worn in a bow or hanging loose. As this is quite a loose fit, it looks really nice with skinny jeans or shorts.
One of my favourite things from this haul is definitely this gem. Kimonos became really popular last year, and I finally have one now. The pattern is so bold and striking, and I think the V down the back is so cool. I'm in love.
I've recently joined a netball team and begun running in the mornings, so I needed some new gear to get started, including these black and white tile runner shorts with black edging. They are really comfortable and lightweight, and they go with pretty much anything being monochrome.
Sticking with shorts, these were a bargain at a fiver in the New Look sale. These will be really handy for sport too, and I really, really love grey.
{the shoes aren't included in the haul} When I saw this maxi skirt in store, I couldn't believe how long it was. It's the perfect length for me, but must trail along the floor for many others. I love the blue and orange contrast in this skirt, and the slit makes it breezy and easy to wear. Another of my favourites!
{I sincerely apologise for the mess on my bed} Navy jogging bottoms are such an essential, so I snapped them up from New Look's Tall section. As you can see from the top photo, they are so thickly and fluffily lined, which will be super snug in winter!
{the black top and ditsy shorts also aren't included} I bought these sunglasses from Camden Market in London last month. They are quite crazy, but that's why I like them. They're different, and odd, and I love purple. Me and my friends all bought sunglasses, and it was so much fun!
