I am stressed therefore I shop.


Apologies for the massive blog slacking, exams have been casually ruining my life. I have gone home in a last ditch attempt to try and revise without distractions so my day to day existence is spent sat looking over lecture notes I do not, and will never understand and then occasionally leaving the house to either see the boyf or travel back up to Manchester for an exam. You don't have to say it, my life is thrilling. I'm going through some serious uni related confusion at the same time as doing exams. This combination means I do one thing ... shop. So off I popped to Milton Keynes shopping center with the intension of doing some serious retail therapy. And you know what I feel 100 times better post spending splurge. Here are a few things I bought.


First off are what I have dubbed as my 'Birthday Shoes'. As it's my birthday at the start of June, I obviously feel I need a whole new outfit and when I saw these bad boys in Kurt Geiger I simply couldn't walk away. I'm a sucker when it comes to studded shoes (lets be honest I'm a sucker for studded anything) and have a worrying obsession with Sam Eldman and these have a feel of his footwear. I can't walk in them to save my life mind and have a feeling when these are combined with alcohol they may make a lethal combination which results in me being rather too well acquainted with the floor. But oh well, they're pretty.


 

Next up are a slightly more sensible pair of shoes. I popped into Office and bought some plain white low top converse. It was a toss up between these and Vans but went for Converse as I think they look better with Disco Pants which I, along with the rest of the world, have been living in. Their a little dirty already as I have  worn them i kid you not every day since buying them.

Next up I went to Topshop and found just a simple floral crop top which'll be perfect when/ if we FINALLY have some sunshine.

 

I of course couldn't go shopping without visiting Zara. I have a minor obsession with tie-dye and felt I needed this top in my life as it was less than 20 quid and I have been eyeing up a similar jumper in Urban Oufitters at over double the price! Boom. 

I've also been loving crochet and this white jumper with ribbon detail just needs to be paired up with leather shorts and converse and it's good to go!

 

Finally from Zara I bought this mint cardie. Like every other girl, woman, blogger in the known universe I have become obsessed with pastels this season. My wardrobe is now full of pastel shades where it was once a sea of grey and black. Am I turning into a human fondant fancy? Yes yes I am.
Me and the madre also went for a cheeky Wagamamas. How much do you love that restaurant? I do go there slightly too regularly, it's got to the point where the staff know me which is always slightly worrying. I had chilli squid and Yaki Soba it's what I get EVERY TIME and it never disappoints.


So the moral of today...When your feeling down, buy clothes and eat Wagamamas. Simple pleasures.
