Fashion // Payday Treats #1

                                                                                 Hey lovelies,
I am really looking forward to having this payday treats type of post as a regular end of month feature to my blog. I feel like I kind of drifted away from my love of fashion for a while, nothing was really catching my eye and as you'll see from some of my previous posts, I've gone quite beauty crazy recently. Thankfully lots of sites seem to be serving up the best fashion at the minute and just in time for my fav seasons autumn & winter. These are just a few things that I've really been wanting recently and luckily I've manged to purchase a few!Payday Treats #1 
1/ Floral Embroidered Jeans - New Look
I absolutely love wearing jeans but I find they are the one piece of clothing that I find hard to shop for. Being 5ft1/2 I feel I have to take so much into consideration like 'is the length too long' 'will my stomach look too big' and 'will it give the illusion that i have a big bum'. I was a really big fan of ASOS' ridley ones but then i found after a few washes they'd become really loose and baggy on, then i fell in love with Topshop joni's all over again but after noticing on my second pair that the colour tends to fade pretty quickly and that the middle wears off (literally) right in the middle of the thighs i vowed that i wouldn't spend my money on another full priced pair unless i somehow managed to get them for a cheaper price. Fast forward two weeks of trying jeans on in store and not getting anywhere i saw New Look tweet the link to these babe of jeans and that's where the love story began. I was a bit nervous as I'd ordered them for a click and collect and as I've never owned or tried on a pair of jeans from there I just wasn't sure whether the sizing or length would be what I was after. Thankfully I tried them on and I couldn't be happier. The flower embroider detailing is amazing and i decided to go for 30 in the leg and for a shorty it's the perfect fit.

 2 / Topshop Striped Mensy Peg Trousers - Lyst*
I feel like I've been feeling quite daring recently with my style. I'm getting a bit bored of playing it safe all the time with my fashion and am looking to venture out a bit more with things i buy and wear. I've wanted a pair of peg trousers for as long as i can remember but for me personally they are quite the fashion statement. I saw them in real life recently on one of my few accidental.. trips to Topshop *shifty eyes* and then over on Lyst, then ever since then I've seen them a lot online. They're currently in the sale which is really tempting me to just bite the bullet. I think they'd be a pretty good purchase!

 3 / Nike Meadow 16 Txt Trainers - ASOS
Ever since I got my first pair of Nikes last year I've been obsessed, so obsessed that it didn't take me long to purchase the same Roshe One in a different colour (to be fair I got my first pair in the sale for £41!!!) now i can't really justify spending £70+ on a pair at the minute but whilst browsing the 70% off sale on ASOS i came across these babies. They are currently £34.00 down from £57.00 which is quite the bargain if i do say so myself. I am so pleased i made the purchase as they are even more gorgeous in real life. The thing I love about new Nikes is that for a while it just feels like you are walking on marshmallows but in a really comfy (non sticky) way. It does scare me quite a bit as they are white and being the mess that i am (my friends would agree) i need to be careful not to ruin them and they also have a bit of suede detailing at the front and suede + rain = no no and being the time of year that it is in the UK the weather can be pretty crazy. I'll report back in a few weeks in what condition they are in.
4/ Miss Selfridge Grey Longline Duster Coat - Lyst*
I was in ZARA last week and i absolutely fell in love with all the duster coats on display, it took quite a lot for me not to purchase one until Ally pointed out the price tag (lulz). This Miss Selfridge one is a little more reasonable. I have a pink duster which I've had for 4 or 5 years now and i cannot get enough of it, so i know purchasing a new one would actually be a good investment. I love the check detailing on this one and how cosy it looks!

5 / New Look Nylon Zip Detail Backpack - ASOS
This was another purchase that i made in that fab ASOS sale. I've racked up quite the collection of backpacks that i hope to feature in a post soon. I'm the type of gal who will take everything and the kitchen sink with me. tissue? check. snacks? check. other items that i probably didn't need to carry with me? check. i really liked how spacious it looked and at only £7.50 i just couldn't say no. It actually arrived this weekend and it's a dream. Sadly i took it out for the first time today (with barely anything inside) and something on the front that makes the front flap close fell off. I've looked online and and can see it's still available to purchase so i'm going to return and hope that i can be sent a replacement as it really is a lovely bag.


Are there any payday treats that you want to get your hands on?
