Hi everyone! How are you? I am so excited to show you the clothes I got when I was on holiday in England! 😆 I think that all but a few items are from TKmaxx 🙈😂 I went to 7 different tkmaxxs 9 times in total 😬 but I suppose that’s not bad considering the stuff I came away with! 😏 (Be warned this is going to be a long post 😂) Next year I will look back on this haul (alongside my last haul HERE) so as to know what to pack with me as we plan to go over again (hopefully with my parents). I only started going on holiday last year so it’s nice to see more of the family and it feels normal walking around england as its that part of home that Ireland is missing for me. It was strange having to say “pounds” again when I’ve only just gotten used to saying “euros” too but of course that didn’t stop me from getting stuff! 🙈😂
Diesel – long sleeve dark pink shirt £14.99
As soon as I saw this t-shirt I loved it! It’s not hot pink so it’s not girly and it’s pink so it’s not tomboyish and I’m rambling 🙈😂 basically it’s in between and I like that! 😂 I’m looking forward to wearing clothes for colder weather (mainly because that means we are drawing ever closer to Christmas! 😆). I seem to have spent the majority of my summer building up a collection of jumpers and hoodies (don’t ask me why! 😂) so on this holiday I focused on summer stuff that will probably see me through next summer too! (I cannot emphasise that “probably” enough though! 😂).
One Two Luxzuz – please and thank you are still magical words t-shirt. £12.99
When I saw this t-shirt I thought it had been made for me 😂 as all I said when I was staying with various family members whilst away was either “please” or “thank you” 😂 I’ve told you before that I love quote t-shirts but only just recently have I built up a collection of them to be proud of! 😂
Zenana Outfitters – grey vest £5.99
This summer I realized that I have been wearing a lot more vests than I used to (I was nervous about how I looked before but now I don’t care as it’s gotten so bloody hot! 😂) and so when I saw this one I was able to say “ahh i love that” without someone telling me “you’ll never wear it!” 🙈😂
Public Envy – unicorn squad t-shirt £9.99
Trust me to buy into the whole unicorn thing that’s going on right now! 😂 My little cousin also loves unicorns and we ended up unexpectedly wearing a unicorn themed shirt on the same day 😂 for some reason this shirt makes me so happy, the rainbow design on it is glittery and looks so colourful!
Passport – tartan shirt £12.99
I went through a phase where tartan t-shirts were all I wore but the majority of them were from Penney’s so they didn’t have as nice a feel to them material wise compared to the recent ones (like this) that I purchase from TKmaxx. It is so soft and looks great styled out both ways either buttoned up or with a vest underneath.
Two Brave Soul vests – Miami Beach/Florida
I always seem to pick up more Brave Soul clothes on the rare occasions I do shop for clothes (not so rare in Tkmaxx 🙄😂). The yellow vest was £4.99 and the blue one was £3 (I’m wearing that one today 😂).
The girl that loves – jacket £14.99
I really like this jacket and was attracted to it first because of the grey suprisingly and not the pattern 🙈😂 and then I pulled it out fully and saw the design and its so pretty! It’s like the bird is singing and it’s song is carried away from it with intricate details around the shoulder. I was disappointed that it doesn’t have pockets and thought “what am I supposed to do with my hands?” But then I realized when there are pockets on jackets I never use them anyway..🙄😂
Hoxton Denim – oversized vest £5.99
Okay so this oversized vest is WEIRD 😂 I just realized that its actually mens 🙈😂 I remember that it was the one thing I knew I wanted to walk out of this particular TKmaxx with and that it held a place in my heart from the very beginning…now I don’t know why! 😂 The front is plain and the back has the large design that I’m growing fond of as it is unexpected and I guess in this case that’s good? 😮😂
B.YOU – padded bomber jacket
This bomber jacket was a present from my aunt and I love it sooo much! It is incredibly cozy and I can’t wait to start wearing it in the colder weather!
Scout paprika vest £4.99
I really like this vest because it doesn’t encase your shoulders and back completely. The material is super soft and feels like it would be the perfect shirt to lounge around in (which is 24/7 for me 😂).
QED London top £9.99
This top is so elegant and delicate. I own two other QED London brand things (a thin jumper that saw me through my short stint in college 😂 and a tartan dress that I got from that massive charity shop I can’t help but rave about now and then 😂). Underneath the flower design lace top there is a navy vest and I don’t know how else to say it: it makes me feel somewhat princessy 🙄😂 which is a good thing because it makes me confident!
David and Goliath – I think this was a bad idea t-shirt. £7.99
This David and Goliath t-shirt reminded me of my other shirt by the same brand from my June Favourites post so I had to get it! 😂 I love when you find clothes where you know they are proper because they come out of the wash with hardly a crease and this is one of them! 😂
s.Oliver Denim – leggings £12.99
I never usually buy anything trouser related as most of the time I wear black leggings as then I can wear any coloured t-shirt 😂 but when I saw these leggings I grabbed them and prayed they’d fit as they look smaller than they say they will be (they do fit! Now that’s luck! 😂). They are kind of mystical with brushes of paint and botches of ink and even though they are thin material they make me feel warm 😂
George – flared trousers £14
These trousers are so summery and beautiful! 🌺🌸 They are baggy and stop at my ankles so show off my converse high tops! 😂 I will wear them before summer ends I swear! Which will have to be soon as over here in Ireland we have started having warnings issued for the rain which is coming down like there’s no tomorrow..I’m so glad to be home 😂
Bpc selection (bonprix collection) – red long sleeve t-shirt.
This top was also a present and it was the first thing I wore the day after I got back home! 😂 It’s so comfy and was the perfect shirt to allow myself to adjust to the Irish weather again what with the long sleeves and the surprisingly thick material 😂
George – off shoulder top £5
This off shoulder top was in a sale and I was wondering if I should get it or not and then I spent even longer wondering why I was even questioning it as it was in the bloody sale! 😂 It has cute tassels off the arms, an entangled flower design encasing the entire bottom and I’ve found (through accident of movement 😂) that it can scrunch up to look like a normal top too covering your shoulders (even if it looks obvious that it’s not supposed to do that 😂).
Parisian – pink “I woke up like this” hoodie £9.99
I thought this hoodie was £9 alone…..it turned out to be £10… Not a big difference but double digits does make me feel like I spent a lot more 😂 it is worth it though! I can’t wait to snuggle up on a rainy winter’s day (I’ve sadly given up hope of snow…for now 😂) in it with a mug of hot chocolate 😍.
David and Goliath – warning frequent mood swings t-shirt £7.99
Of course I can’t relate to this t-shirt in anyway possible 🙄 in fact the only thing I can take away from it is that it is yet another David and Goliath shirt….ARGH 😫 I can’t lie! I think I’ll be wearing this to highlight how I’m feeling on most days! 😂 Now I think of it I am kind of up and down on a swing like the design implies…it’s like their watching me so they can think of new art for tshirts 😬😂.
GWCC Official University of Cambridge merchandise. £20
This hoodie will forever hold a memory! I got it on a day when my family and I were running through the pouring rain in Windsor to get on a boat and take a tour of the river Thames 😂 we ran by a stall and we made it all the way to the boat before I decided I would get one after the tour because the rain persisted through it and I was drenched 😂. As you can expect though after the tour when we were walking back as soon as I bought and put on the hoodie it stopped raining…..🙄…well I wanted some memorabilia! And this memorabilia holds a memory for sure 😂
Thank you for reading! 😉💗 Do you like any of the things I bought? I see now that I may have a slight obsession with TKmaxx 🙄😂 I can’t think of one thing I left behind in the shop that I really wanted, I only left the stores with what I was truly in love with and knew I would regret leaving behind…so that kind of makes me feel better! Aside from the fact that they are bargains compared to the prices here in Ireland 😂 Have a lovely day!
