In the half-term, I went on a huge shopping spree with my aunty, as I have either grown out of my old cold weather clothes or just didn’t have certain pieces that I needed to stay cosy. I shopped all the basics, slowing building up my wardrobe and a few unique pieces too! Side note: most of these pieces have links on them so just click on the pictures or links I put in to shop! Hope ya like it…
I thought I would endorse my crazy hoodie obsession further by buying this adorable mickey mouse hoodie. I love the embroidery detail, as I think it adds a beautiful feature that distinguishes it from my other thousands of hoodies. I love the little spirally quality on the drawstrings of the hoodie. Also who doesn’t love Mickey Mouse?!
In the whole process of my huge shopping spree, I also was looking out for a few good basics. One of them was a good, durable black jumper that I could easily style in different ways. I love basics that I could easily style up or down. For example, for a more casual look I would put it with a pair of skinny blue jeans, gold jewellery and black boots. For a more dressed up look I would pair it with some dress trousers and a blazer.
I always see fashion bloggers on Instagram wearing the greyish, oversized blazers and I thought I would try and find one for myself. By the time we got to H&M, we were four hours deep into our shopping trip and we were extremely tired. We had two more things to get before going home – anout basic jumper and a blazer. I found two that looked good and tried them on in a rush. At the store, they didn’t have my size but I tried on a larger size and thought it achieved the oversized purpose. Alas, I came home and changed my mind and decided to return it for a brown plaid pattern one that is coming soon!
Now this one hundred percent one of my favourite pieces that I bought as I have a new found obsession (yes I have been over-using that word) of corduroy. It is also perfect for Autumn as it is so warm and still fashionable. I picked the black colour as I thought I could easily style in different ways, as it is a good base colour.

I love this red basic as it is really hugging and the button detail is beautiful. I read that if you start with one tight layer you can easily layer jacket and jumpers over to stay warm but not look like you are drowning in fabric. Click here if you would like to check out this jumper.
Yet another basic! I loved the pale grey colour on this cardigan. It is also such a nice length and I love how it sinches in at the ends and wrists. I love the silver button detail on the wrists too.
I saw this not-so-basic in New Look and thought it was quite extravagant! I thought the black perfectly juxtaposed with the peplum detail around the ends and the wrists. It is very different to what I would normally go for but when I tried it on I thought it was really flattering.
Similar to last one (just a bit more simple), this green jumper has a lovely shirt detail. I also love the colour and the little button detail on the shirt. The collar is so beautiful as well. The lines in the jumper itself add a great new texture.
Recently, I am have been obsessed with golden jewellery as I think it is so pretty and normally goes with all outfits. I feel like chokers are especially flattering and add a little bit on interest to the the neck area. I could not find the exact link to this set but I did find an equally cute set on the Primark website, so click the pic to shop!
The last basic I purchase was this turtleneck jumper from h&m. It would be nice to pair this with the blazer (or a blazer) from before. The colour reminds me more of a wintry look and I think this piece would be great for when all the leaves are off the trees.
