Black Friday Haul
So I know Black Friday was yesterday, BUT most stores are still doing the sales until Monday, so you can probably still find some amazing deals! In today’s blog post I’m going to show you guys what I got yesterday, and how I’m piecing them together.
I’m usually not one to buy new clothes unless I need them. So, (almost) everything I got was for a reason! With that in mind, here are some of the pieces that I bought…
I got this hat from Forever21, and I LOVE IT. Honestly, I love hats in general. I have 4 already haha, but I really wanted one with a thinner rim. In summer, I’m all about the floppy hats with big rims – gotta keep my skin healthy! But in winter, they feel a bit out of place. I cannot let that stop me from wearing hats, though! So, I’ve been waiting to see a good deal, and I found this hat with 50% off, so I only paid £8 for it (and better still, I used £8 that I had in change lying around my bedroom – so it felt like a free hat in all honesty!)
I got the necklace that I’m wearing in this photograph from boohoo, it’s super cute, and I’ve been looking for something similar for so long, so I’m so glad I found it!
Next up is my classic white low top converse. I bought a pair of these in 2009, and I kept them for 7 years haha (yes, my feet are currently the same size as they were when I was 13…) needless to say, they’re pretty destroyed by now! There are holes in the soles, and the insides are peeling out. I thought it was about time I replaced them. So, I explored the stressful place that is ebay, and found some second hand ones in really good condition, for £18! There really is no need to pay full price for converse, you can get great deals online, and second hand, and it’s better for the environment, too!
Next up, I got this super cute pink jumper from Zara (unfortunately, it wasn’t in the sale, but it was only £25.99, so I reckon it’s worth it) it’s honestly just so so soft, and so snuggly and warm!! Now that the weather is turning much colder, my wardrobe is definitely in need of a winter update.
I’ve had my eye on this coat for so long! I tried it on in Zara a couple of weeks ago, and haven’t stopped thinking about it since haha. This is the one thing I actually went Black Friday shopping for, so I was so happy that it was in the sale! I think it’s so cute for Autumn, it’s just so cozy and warm, and it makes me feel older. I mean, I’m 22 now, I should get a ‘grown up’ coat.. right?
Another shot of the pink jumper and the coat, with my gorgeous engagement ring that this handsome man (and wonderful photographer) got for me! I can’t believe he proposed 9 months ago today, time has flown by so quickly!
I hope that you enjoyed this post! I’m not really used to doing posts about fashion or outfits, but I tried to at least show you guys what I bought! I really love these pieces, and I also made a video showcasing the haul along with a few extra pieces that I bought before Black Friday! That will be uploaded to my Youtube channel tomorrow, so keep your eyes peeled for that.
