This will be my last outfit post for a couple of weeks as I’m heading to CALIFORNIA in the early hours, eeeek! If anyone has any recommendations of things to see, do or eat, or shops to visit anywhere in SoCal then please leave a comment below. If I can blog whilst I’m away then I will do so, but I can make no promises. I will be posting (a lot) on Instagram whilst I’m there, so if you don’t already follow me my username is hannahlouisef. Have a great summer 🙂
I wasn’t amazed by the Topshop online sale, but there are always so many more treats in store! I was torn between a few items in the Manchester store sale, but settled on these silk joggers by Topshop Boutique. They were reduced to £40 from £70, so £36 with student discount and I had a £10 voucher, so at £26 they were a pretty good deal! They’re one of the comfiest items I own, and they fall beautifully and can be dressed up or down easily. The Topshop Boutique range is generally a little overpriced in my opinion, but it’s always my favourite section of Topshop and I’m a sucker for anything silk.
Here I’m wearing my new trousers with a batwing cropped chiffon blouse from SheInside, ASOS ID necklace, Zara mini shopper and Jeffrey Campbell Jett boots which I got on eBay.
My recent desire to get a new skirt and the latest ASOS sale has resulted in two new skirts, this being one of them! It is the ‘midi skirt in ponte check‘, reduced to a very reasonable £17.50. It always irritates me that you can’t use student discount on ASOS sale items, but I’m still super happy with my purchase.
Yesterday I wore it with an off-white high neck, long sleeve crop top as the checks are also an off-white colour and my new Jeffrey Campbell Jett boots which I managed to pick up for £45 on eBay! I’ve wanted these boots or something similar for a while, so I’m pretty happy with these too. I finished off my outfit with my trusty Topshop leather biker and off-white faux fur stole from eBay and my Lime Crime ‘suedeberry’ Velvetine.
The buzz of Boxing Day sales has now died down, but there are still some great bargains to be had in the high street sales, and (thankfully) fewer crazed shoppers! Below are some of my favourite sale picks which are still in stock, happy sale shopping!
I first saw the Jeffrey Campbell Starburst ankle boot in Urban Outfitters a number of years ago and fell in love with the design but not with the price tag (which then was ‘only’ around £90, a steal compared to the £120 you’d be paying today!). I then discovered the equally beautiful Chloe ankle boots pictured above and wanted the (comparatively far more reasonably priced) Starbursts even more! The ankle boot is probably bigger this winter than it has been for a long while, and so more and more similar versions of the studded ankle boot have been cropping up all over, for example the popular Nighthawk from Office and Amazon Biker Boots from ASOS, and after some searching I finally found a pair I was more than happy with the price of!
My boots, pictured below, cost £34.28 altogether including shipping from China and although the quality might be compromised (for example they are obviously not real leather – minus points for quality but great for vegetarians/vegans!), I’m over the moon with them! You can purchase them in black, red or brown here, mine took 3 weeks to arrive and be warned that the pictures used on eBay are not all of these boots (some are clearly the Chloe version which have a more pointy toe and come higher up the calf), however the picture of the black pair seems to be accurate and I’ve taken some for you to check out below. Happy shopping!
