Spring/Summer Clothes Haul; Featuring Gap, New Look and Quiz!

I had a real bad week the other week and so the way I decided to cheer myself up was the old fashioned way of going and buying some new clothes. I spent a bit more than I actually intended to, but I've been getting a lot of wear out of most of these clothes already so no regrets at all here!

Let's start with Gap. First of all I bought this beautiful orange hoodie, which I'm wearing as I'm writing this. It's more orange than these pictures suggest and it's such a nice shade that goes surprisingly well with my colour. It's also super comfortable and probably ideal for warmer evenings as even though I'm wearing it indoors right now it's a little chilly with it on but still super comfortable.

Next up I got this shirt. I LOVE the feel of this shirt. This is one of those tops that I looked at and wasn't entirely sure as to whether I wanted to buy it, as you can get clothes in similar patterns in much cheaper shops like Primark. However, as soon as I put it on I knew I wanted to buy it. Again, it is SO comfortable. The material is super soft and just feels lovely on your skin, and makes me feel a little bit like I'm wearing pyjamas in public but also like I just don't care about that!

My final Gap purchase was these jeans. It took me so long to find these jeans, jeans just don't fit me. I think I'm weirdly sized when it comes to leg length to hip width ratio as I just really struggle to find anything that fits. Luckily, Gap have like a million different sizes and styles and so I took advantage of the fact that I was shopping at an odd time of day and therefore the store was empty and tried on about 14 pairs of jeans. Finally, this pair fit me! Ironically the day after my trusty skinny jeans that I've had for about ten years decided to rip, so it's a good job I bought these ones afterall.

Just one item from New Look, and it's this bikini. I really like this bikini as I think it looks a lot like the range Victoria's Secret sell, but for a significantly lower price. I will say that the top doesn't make the most attractive shape on you, but I really like the colours (and there are other options available if you're not keen on the blue!) and it more than does the job.

And finally, we have two items from Quiz! I mentioned last month that I was really impressed by what Quiz had been bringing out lately, and this month was definitely no exception. They have such bright, beautiful colours at the moment and I'm just loving the design choices. I managed to narrow it down to just two items, the first being this beautiful top.

The final item was this dress, which was really hard to picture. Basically, this dress is multiple lengths. One side of it goes down to my ankles, one side is much shorter, with a sort of inbetween layer to make it all come together. The fabric is lovely and I think this dress will be so versatile. It's also great for people like me - maxi dresses look absolutely ridiculous on me but for some reason this dress doesn't!

Ta-da! What do you think? All items purchased in person from Gap, New Look and Quiz Clothing.
