Before heading off to Uni, my Nan treated me to a shopping trip for my 21st. We went a month before my actual birthday but I still managed to feel very lucky and spoilt! This post is about the lovely pieces my Nan bought me in Lakeside Shopping Centre.
My favourite thing about going to Lakeside is that they have all the normal high street shops & more. I love Forever 21 so when choosing where to shop it was between Lakeside & Stratford's Westfields. The aim of our shopping mission was to purchase some lovely casual Autumnal clothes for when I'm back at uni and can't afford to put the heating on. I am a big lover of A/W fashion - the big knits, comfy boots and layers.

This grey knit is so soft. I'm scared I'm going to ruin it in the wash so this might be a handwash item for me. Over the season I can see myself teaming this knit up with a shirt underneath and even shorts with tights on those warmer days. Primark are my go-to shop when it comes to jeggins. They are under a tenner and there is such a variety of colours to choose from.

Ralph, the attention seeking Golden Doodle always wants to be involved. He is my fashion accessory for this outfit as I did wear it on a dog walk the other day. Another amazing knit from the wonderful Forever 21 - I cannot say enough about how much I love this shop. This cream and black number will probably be worn under a pinafore dress or with a skirt at some point this year! With the Miss Selfridge ankle boots, it was love at first sight. From my A/W Ankle Boot post (which you can read here), you can see I looked about all sorts of places. I hardily ever look at Miss Selfridge's range of shoes because they never have much of a choice but so pleased I found these!
|Blouse: Forever 21 / Jeggins: Primark / Shoe Boots: New Look|
I love sheer blouses - there is something so feminine and smart-casual about them. This one was in the sales at Forever 21 so for £11 I think it's a bargain. It was only £17 before which I would have happily spent. Forever 21 is on the high street scale about the same as New Look, which is almost as cheap as Primark but better quality. Speaking of New Look, if I ever want new shoes this is the first place I look. Casually looking through the sales the other day, I came across these shoe boots and for £7 I wasn't going to leave them all alone in that big shop.
I'm very happy with my new clothes for the upcoming season! I am a very lucky girl to be so spoilt by my Nan so a big thank you to her for buying me these gems! Also I want to thank my little brother for taking the photos for me. It's starting to feel like an acceptance speech for some award so I'll stop in a moment. Lastly let me thank all of you lovely readers! If you haven't already, please enter my 5k page view giveaway here.
