Haul| My Thrifty Weekend Fashion Buys

In all honesty I really haven't done a lot this weekend, despite this amazing weather we've had :(
It really disappoints me the fact that I can't go on days out or weekend breaks, basically due to the fact that my boyfriend works really shitty shifts and we can never plan anything! This explains why I never really have much to write about "my life" on this blog... 

Yesterday, I went for a quick walk to my local town and had a nosey round the charity shops, this is one of my favourite things to do when I'm out shopping! Some days you can find some nice things, others you come back empty handed. Luckily, yesterday was a good day and I picked up a few things, all from one shop! 

Haul - Thrifty Charity Shop Weekend Fashion Buys

Haul - Thrifty Charity Shop Weekend Fashion Buys Floral Dress
This dress by Apricot was only £1.49! I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it. I checked it over several times before I bought it thinking there must have been something wrong with it for that tiny price. But there wasn't. This dress will be perfect to wear on warmer days, the floral pattern is gorgeous. It's a decent length so if I'm feeling brave I can wear it without leggings! I love the rouched waistline, and also the "V" neckline, it cuts a little low so I think I'll wear a vest top underneath! 

Haul - Thrifty Charity Shop Weekend Fashion Buys Floral Skirt
This pretty floral skirt by "Be Beau" at Matalan was £1.50. 
It will be perfect for me to wear to work, just with a plain t-shirt. I love the "tulip" style of it, it will emphasise my waistline which is one of the only parts of my body I like to show off! 

Haul - Thrifty Charity Shop Weekend Fashion Buys Burgundy Skater Dress
This Skater dress from Select was only £3. It's made of quite thick, swishy material and feels such good quality. Not to mention, I absolutely adore the colour! This is probably more of an Autumn dress, however I'm sure I'll still wear it a few times before the weather gets too hot! 

Haul - Thrifty Charity Shop Weekend Fashion Buys Leopard Tunic Matalan
Haul - Thrifty Charity Shop Weekend Fashion Buys Leopard Tunic Matalan
This tunic top from "Be Beau" at Matalan, was only £2. It's not something I would usually wear, and probably more suitable to wear over your bikini at the beach. But considering I'm not getting a holiday again this year. I'll have to just wear it with a pair of black leggings. It's made of thin material so perfect for hot days to keep you cool! The bold print is stunning and is embellished with some metallic studs, it also has a really cute bow tie at the back! 
Haul - Thrifty Charity Shop Weekend Fashion Buys Floral Primark Dress
Haul - Thrifty Charity Shop Weekend Fashion Buys Floral Primark Dress
This floral dress from Primark is brand new and was only £2.50 (Originally £6) I'm pretty sure this is still in stores now? I love this style of dress, they are quite short so I always wear them with leggings, but they are perfect for a casual everyday outfit. I love the cute floral pattern, and again it has an elasticated waistline. There is also an adorable bow on the back for that extra detail! 
Haul - Thrifty Charity Shop Weekend Fashion Buys New Look Monochrome Printed Scarf
Finally, this scarf from New Look was only £1. I know its getting too warm to wear a scarf now, but I liked it a lot, so had to pick it up anyway. I love the bold patterns and that its quite simple with regards to using only a few colours.

Overall, this little lot cost me only £11.50! I really like everything I've bought, its always good to grab a few bargains when you're feeling a bit down! :)
