The money, the cars and the clothes...

Hi everybody, how are you all? I hope that you have been having a good weekend so far. So, yesterday I went shopping. As you might imagine, this is a cautionary tale and one which does not end well...!
You know when you set off on a shopping trip promising yourself that you will be good and that you will not spend too much money? Let’s face it, we have all been there and we all know exactly what happens next! I headed to Liverpool One (which was the first mistake, as it is just the best place ever to go shopping) and I managed to walk safely past the temptation of Forever 21 (surely I deserve a gold star for that?!) but then I fell at the next hurdle. Good old H&M. I had not even walked through the door before disaster stuck...I liked everything in the window. Is it just me, or do you all love it when the shops start getting their new season clothes in stock? The coats, the bags and the jewellery...I digress! 
Anyway, I went inside and spotted so many things I wanted, but I managed to resist some of them. If you are looking for new season transitional pieces for your wardrobe, I would suggest popping in to H&M soon. There were so many nice coats, jackets, pencil skirts and tops...trust me, go there soon!

Here is what I found in H&M:

 Grey dress, there was no price tag, but I think it cost between £20 - £30 


 #Celfie top £7.99

 J'aime les mauvais garçons top £7.99

 Black body-con top £15

Crop-Top £7.99

The array of things I tried on! 

Here is what else caught my eye in store:
 Fun slogan sweaters.

 I loved this sweater!

 Animal prints and grey.

 The coat, the bag and the perfect white t-shirt...! 

I loved this look. The skirt was cute and the faux-leather jacket was only £30


Then it was lunch time, well, a girl needs some fuel to see her through a day of intense shopping! Guess where I headed? Starbucks. I know you guys will be very shocked...! 


Next, I went to Primark and all ideas of restraint really went out of the window! Here is what I tried on, I did not buy all of it though...

 White long line jacket £17 (bought)

 Black long line jacket £17 (bought)

Grey fringe kimono £15 (did not buy)


 Long floral kimono £8 (bought)


Grey distressed t-shirt £4 (did not buy) grey ripped jeans £13 (bought)

 Cream textured cardigan £12 (did not buy...yet!)

Black textured cardigan £12 (did not buy)


So many cute kimonos! 

What I wore to go shopping:
All Primark, except for the bag which is from Forever 21.

All in all, a successful day of shopping! What have you all been up to lately? Remember, I love to read your to comments and I follow back my followers.

Until next time, 
Camille xo

    1. Thank you very much, so kind of you! I really wanted the crop top too, I wish I had bought it now. It is funny, I always end up wanting the things I did not buy more than the ones I did...!

      Have a great week!

  33. You know, H&M stores in Europe carry much, much nicer selections, than the ones here in the States.

    I'm serious!

    H&M clothes here are terrifyingly ugly, and almost nothing is wearable. They look and feel so unattractive. The prices aren't any cheaper, but the products definitely are different. ;-)

    1. That is so annoying that the H&M stuff in the States is not as cute :-(
      the stock should be the same worldwide, then it would be easier to shop wherever you are (as if we need an excuse to go shopping more!) I hope you have a great day and than you for stopping by on my blog.
