Summer Haul - River Island, Forever 21, Quiz & Schuh

River Island
I bought my first leather jacket from Miss Selfridge when I was in uni. Considering I've had 4 different classes as a qualified teacher that a long time ago! I've worn the jacket hundreds, if not thousands, of times but it's now a bit big. I probably won't part with it but I wanted a newer, smaller, more fitted jacket. With the amount I'll wear this I know it's worth the money.

Speaking about things being too big I've had one of my favourite non-scale victories of the year - I've bought a size 10 pair of jeans from River Island! I love River Island jeans and my current denim Amelie pair are getting too big so it was time to treat myself to a proper fitted, comfortable pair to celebrate.

Forever 21
I'm looking ahead to the Summer nights out and making use of the 20% student discount by buying this bodysuit. They're much better for tucking into pencil skirts and I've got a few different ones that will go best with black. This one feels like a swimming costume and is long enough to be comfortable but might need some tit tape to keep it all in place.

This shift dress sums up some of my favourite trends right now - yellow, tropical print and shift dresses. I'll be wearing this at work with a pair of tights or leggings because it's a little on the short side. Hello trendy teacher. 

The floral print of this top caught my eye then I was drawn to the high neck style. The cowl back is quite nice too but not particularly noticeable. The one problem with the top is under the arms are very low so I might need a vest top underneath or to get the tit tape back out! I'm going to be double sided taped into all my clothes at this rate.

I'm wearing a jumpsuit for a hen weekend soon and wanted something to wear underneath because it's got an open back. I needed a high neck and this little bargain was perfect. It also helps avoid the stripping off in the bathroom situation.

Quiz
How gorgeous are these shoes? Nude, rose gold and a chunky heel, they tick all the boxes I was looking for. I'm hoping these will be 'comfortable' enough for all day and night at a wedding. These colours will go with nearly any dress too.

I had no idea Quiz did fascinators and hatinators in their accessories. This made getting wedding guest ready a little easier. I was able to try this on in the changing room with the dress I bought back in March. Perfect! Now I just need to find a navy clutch, any ideas or suggestions?

Schuh
Is payday a valid excuse for this haul? If so, that's exactly what happened when these trainers jumped into my online basket. I've been eyeing up Gazelles for months now because lets face it they are the prettiest trainers ever. The pale pink sums up my girliness, there was no other option for me.
