Saturday Shopping Trip

Happy weekend everyone 🙂 Have you got much planned? I’m going out with the girls tonight to celebrate two of their birthdays. No plans yet, but we’re going out somewhere!

I nipped into town earlier and picked up a few bits and bobs. I saw Toby Faletau (Welsh rugby player) in town and had a little fan girl moment. When walking past him I just blurted out “Good luck against England next week”. He looked quite taken aback, don’t think he is used to people recognising him! He went to the same school as me and lives in the same town as me so I probably shouldn’t have got so excited to see him, but he does Wales proud and he deserves the recognition.

Jeans – Primark
Brogues – Peacocks
Coat – AX Paris
Jumper – H&M
Bag – eBay

I wore pretty much what I wear every Saturday, my comfortable outfit to throw on for nipping into town. I don’t normally see celebs so don’t bother to make an effort with what I wear.

I didn’t buy much, my town is rubbish, the only shops we have are Argos, New Look, Peacocks, Regis (local clothing shop), InStore, Wilkinsons, Card Factory, Superdrug, Boots and Iceland, oh and loads of charity shops that don’t have any decent clothes in them. I did manage to buy a few bits though.

Black Suedette Brogues £16.50 Peacocks. I haven’t tried these on yet so I hope that they are okay as I’m not sure of the returns policy now that they are in administration . These were a last minute purchase on the way to the till, I think they will look lovely with the shorts below and black tights.

Highwaisted Denim Shorts £16.00 Peacocks. I tried these on and they fit lovely. They are a size bigger than I normally am in trousers, I always struggle with getting denim shorts to fit me. I’ve ordered a new t-shirt from Orange Circle so have bought these ready to wear with that when it arrives.

Peppa Pig Luggage set £17.99 Argos. My nieces third birthday is coming up and she is Peppa Pig obsessed. She needs a new bag so I couldn’t resist this set. It contains a suitcase, backpack, gym bag and purse.

MUA Snow White Eyeliner £1 Superdrug. (link to MUA Store as product not showing on Superdrug’s website). Frances is often sporting this eyeliner in her FOTD posts and it looks lovely on her, it really brightens her eyes. I’ve never thought of trying white eyeliner previously but love how it looks on her, for £1 I thought I’d try it myself. Let me know if you want to see a review.

What have you been buying so far this weekend?

    Love the outfit, and those brogues are really nice – hope they fit! I'm going out tonight too, need to pick an outfit and decide on make up! I haven't actually left my bed yet though – shameful! xx

      Thanks 🙂 The brogues should fit okay as I'm usually a size 4 in Peacocks.
      I'm going out too but am hoping the girls will change their minds and have a night in instead! If I do go out I have no idea what to wear!
      Enjoy your night – and get out of bed you lazy sod lol xx

    I really like those shorts! Your fox bag is so sweet as well, off to eBay for me I think! xxx

      Can't beat an animal bag!
      The shorts are the nicest pair of denim shorts I've tried on in ages, I just hope they don't go shapeless after a while x
