Finally another 'New In', it's been ages i know but i haven't really done much shopping recently. I'm on a mission to streamline my wardrobe, i want to have fewer random pieces and create more of a capsule feel with basics and key pieces. I think a more structured wardrobe and well thought out purchases will be great space & account wise! I want to try and incorporate more colour, pattern & femininity into my wardrobe and sort out my jewellery to leave a few keys pieces rather than bric a brac from years of hoarding! With that in mind here are a few things i've bought in the last few days while wandering around my uni town!
The first purchase i blame on the Internet. I saw a girl on Tumblr wearing this American Apparel version and after finally finding it and realising it was a little out of my price range at the time i forgot about it. During a session of Topshop browsing i saw this one with a slightly different neckline but £12 cheaper! I'm thinking it would go well with midi skirts, jeans, joggers & dressed up or down.

My second basic is also a black cropped tee from Topshop but has a more casual vibe with the unfinished bottom and pinned sleeves. I think it's a more feminine version of all the Men's tee's i have pin rolled the sleeves of (some of which may be going to charity soon!)

Onto the skirts! I'd usually walk straight past skirts but with my new found wardrobe goals i thought i'd give them a try! I love the look of midi/tube skirts but being 4'11" i often have trouble with them because the shorter smaller sizes are too tight and the larger sizes that do fit are too long! I was really lucky and found these on a lonely looking sale rail in Primark, they fit just right, are feminine and incorporate colour into my wardrobe!
I actually bought a dress version of this skirt last year (see it here: 'New In: Prints and Perforation') so i was very surprised to see a skirt version again seven months later! I like the length, print and thought it would go well with my basics! It was £2.

Lastly this little Adidas shopper. I bought this as a new gym bag in Sports Direct for £3 but have started using it for uni as it's strong and the perfect size for my folder. I got it in black and white for that classic look.

That's all i've found recently, i'll start sorting my wardrobe sometime next week! Thanks for reading!
