Autumn Clothing Haul ft. Primark, New Look, Miss Selfridge, Sleek & MAC

Sunday, 29 September 2013


Hello Ladies! With Autumn well and truly upon us, I thought it was time to share some of the things I've been buying over the past month to get ready for Autumn and the cold weather. I know there is lots of talk of this late 'Indian Summer' but as I write this I'm snuggled up on my bed in a cosy jumper, with my favourite candle burning, so it's fair to say that I'm ready for the colder months and for Winter to begin. This is mainly going to be a clothing haul, as when the weather turned about 2/3 weeks ago, I found that I didn't actually own that many warm clothes despite living in England where it's cold 80% of the time. So I rushed out to buy some big cosy jumpers and picked up a few other treats along the way...



The first thing I picked up was this gorgeous jumper from Miss Selfridge for around £32 after I had used my Student Discount, it was one of their 20% off days so I couldn't resist putting it to good use. I instantly fell in love with this jumper when I saw the detail around the neck. I love anything glitzy so this was perfect for me and it was in one of my favourite colours at the moment, a beautiful pastel creamy pink. This is quite a thin jumper so it's perfect for this time of the year when the weather can't decide what it's doing, and looks great with jeans or tucked into a skater skirt with ankle boots. 



The next thing I picked up was this cosy jumper from Pirmark, at the bargain price of £8! Like I said, I am in desperate need of winter jumpers as I didn't own any so I headed to Primark to get some bargains as I can't really afford a whole new winter wardrobe all in one go. 'Pretty In Pink' is one of this seasons trends, with the pink coat being big this year, but as I didn't need a coat and still loved the trend, I thought a jumper would be the perfect option. For only £8 I'm really surprised at how thick and soft this jumper is, It will be perfect for keeping me warm on cold days in the office, without breaking the bank. I also love the little zip detail at the back, as it just adds something else to a quite plain jumper. 



As you can probably tell by this post, I love pastel pink, nude and cream colours at the moment. So when I saw this jumper in new look I had to have it. Although this is quite plain it looks really nice and cosy on and it is so soft. This cost me £14 which I think is a good price for a jumper as some stores charge around £50 and If I bought something at that price I would only have 1 jumper for winter. I like to roll the ends of the sleeves up on this jumper and wear it with a pretty white embellished collar and jeans to make a casual outfit look a bit prettier. 



Last of the jumpers which I picked up was this navy blue jumper from Primark, which costs £14. This is quite a long jumper but I quite like my jumpers to be over-sized as I find that it's a more flattering shape with such a think material. I loved this jumper because of the little sequins it has running through it, I love anything that sparkles and I also love a bit of navy blue so this was perfect for me to wear to work or at the weekends as my work doesn't have a smart dress code. Primark have some great jumpers in at the moment so I would really recommend checking it out if your looking for a winter wardrobe that won't break the bank. 




And lastly, these are just some other little treats I picked up while out shopping. When I saw these Bambi slipper socks in Primark I knew I had to have them. I love anything Disney and I thought the pink colour and the little Bambi heads on them were just too cute to pass up, and at only £4 it was a no-brainer. I also picked up this Sleek eye shadow palette in 'Oh So Special'. After the chat on Wednesday I couldn't wait to get my hands on this Sleek palette and the 'Vintage Romance' palette as they looked like great winter shades for a good price, but the 'Vintage Romance' palette seems to be sold out everywhere near me so I just picked up the one. I love the purples and pinks in this palette as it makes a change to my regular neutral eye looks and will be great for Autumn. And lastly, I couldn't resist popping into the new MAC store in the Shepards Bush Westfield to take a look at their lipsticks. I picked up 'Please Me' which is a matte pink colour. I love pink lipsticks and I didn't own any Matte shades so I thought I would pick this one up as it is still quite neutral, which I love. 

Have you picked up anything in preparation for the colder months? I'd love to see your hauls!
