River Island Loves







All Clothing - River Island
Red Velvet boots - Rocket Dog or New Look
My Necklace - Miss Selfridge
My Earrings - Primark

Myself and mother went for a little stroll around Swindon town center today to look for homey things to go in my family's newly cleaned house. However it may have turned solely into a shopping trip. Maybe.
Still having not been paid I had a little cry inside every time I found something wonderful (which always happens when you have no money!) Especially when I arrived at River Island! 

I've never been the biggest River Island fan as, although I am a little out-going with my sense of style, their clothing has always been a little TOO out-there for me. However today, I found myself wanting everything they had in! So I had to take myself a few cheeky dressing-room snaps, to remind myself what I HAVE to purchase when I receive payment.

As we all know, burgundy is a massive colour this season and when I spotted this super soft cardigan I fell in love! It had tiny little golden beaded studs all over it, and more-so on the cuffs. However, it was £35, which I though was a little steep, but maybe that's just me. Please make it £25 River Island, please.

This Floral skater skirt I also fell in love with. This print and colours are gorgeous and I have had a real big thing for skirts, and especially skater skirts lately. I feel they are really complimentary on my figure. Actually, my mum bought this for me because I kept repeating how much I loved it, I love her!

These Velvet Rocket Dog boots weren't actually in River Island but I found them in Treds for £40 and were the ones from my wish list! Pay day come soon. 

And Finally this adorable Pleather skate skirt. I have been after one of these for ages and this one was such a fab fit! If you do not yet own one of these, I suggest you go grab one up! They are so cute and fashionable  and definitely in my good books at the mo!

Extremely sorry for the essay, Sophie xxxx
