So my New Year got off to an interesting start! I was struck down with a horrible dose of the flu after catching it off my boyfriend (dammit, Yoseph) after taking care of him when he had it. Cue four whole days of a temperature, sniffles, and zero energy. Given my state of flu-induced misery, I decided to indulge in a little online retail therapy to make myself feel better, and boy did it work! You may have spotted my big Sale Edit
post I featured recently recently, where I broke down all the best online sales happening right now. After all the work I put into the post, it was only fair that I got to pick up one or two bits for myself, right?!
Most of the pieces I picked up were from River Island
, which I felt had one of the best online sales this year. These over-the-knee boots
pictured above were reduced from €120 reduced to €35, which is pretty amazing if you ask me! I also picked up another cosy polo-neck,
a cute embellished tee
, and a few packs of thin gold stacking midi rings, I’m always losing mine!
I had a browse on quite a few other online stores, but nothing really jumped out at me, that is until I spotted this gorgeous green jewel-tone pleated midi skirt
. I had seen similar versions on the Topshop website, but they we’re pretty much all sold out, and a lot more expensive, too! This green skirt comes to about €30 in total (free shipping too!) and it also comes in 3 other fabulous jewel shades. I’d love one of each, they’re just so pretty and just think of the outfit possibilities.
You can browse and shop all the pieces in the widget below.
Thankfully I’m feeling much better now, and Im hoping to get cracking on some 2014 outfit posts as soon as this crazy weather settles down, it’s fairly wild out there!
Hoping you’re all having a great start to the new year,
