Haul: Dorothy Perkins and Next!

Hello everyone!

This afternoon, my sister and I went on a little shopping trip and I picked up a few bits which I thought I would share with you all. I brought a few things from Dorothy Perkins, Next, Boots, Superdrug and TK Maxx, and I was going to do a whole shopping trip haul post, but I thought I would break it up.. so today I'm going to show you the clothing items I brought from Dorothy Perkins and Next!

I first went to Next and found this jumper which I really liked. It is a fairly thin jersey kinda jumper, with a dropped back which sits lower than the front and three-quarter length sleeves with a turn up. Perfect for anytime of year, it can paired with a leather jacket and pair of black skinnies for the colder months or even with a pair of shorts for the slightly cooler summer days, so its a very versatile piece.  It was £24, which I think is a reasonable price for a jumper from a shop like Next. Pleased with this purchase!

I then had a look around Dorothy Perkins and found quite a few items I liked for brilliant value!

I picked up this khaki green t-shirt top. It's nothing too exciting, but I wanted to get a few simple tops like this that can go with anything. It has very small white speckled dots all over which give it a nice effect and make it look that bit nicer than one that was completely plain, and I think that's what drew me towards it. This top was only £9 and came in various other colours: blue, charcoal, red and beige. 

Also in Dorothy Perkins, I spotted this tee in the sale. It is another fairly basic t-shit top in a grey/blue colour, but on the front is a pattern made of little gold studs.I love the contrast with this simplicity of the t shirt, and the studs that just add that little something. This was a bargain at only £5 down from £19.50, and I again thought this basic kind of top could be perfect to pair with shorts, leggings or jeans for a good look at any time of the year.

Saving the best until last, also in Dorothy Perkins, I spotted this from across the shop and had to have it!

I'm absolutely in love with this bag. It's a perfect size for an everyday bag to take to college, work or shopping, and is the perfect shape to fit things in too! The gorgeous nude colour and scalloped pattern on the trim are what drew me to this bag straight away - it just looks so pretty and feminine. The bag also has a longer strap inside, so it can be worn on one shoulder or as a satchel across the body, and it does up securely with a twist lock. At £29.50, I think it is good value as the bag feels of a good quality and I think it will last me a long time! The bag also comes in a tan brown colour. I can't say enough good things about this bag.. love it!

So I didn't buy too much, but I'm very happy with my purchases! What do you all think?

Also one quick question, what kind of posts do you enjoy or would want to see from me? I'm welcome to suggestions.
