Purchases for the month of July. Shopping whilst travelling is always inevitable, and before leaving for Europe I put together a wishlist of things that I wanted to pick up or that were missing from my wardrobe. While I didn't manage to get everything that I had on my wishlist, I did manage to tick a number of boxes.

In a somewhat curious event, I managed to come home with a suitcase lighter than the one I went over with (having taken over a few things for my parents), which should give an indication of how little I actually did buy. Missing from above are a couple of light summer jackets and linen t-shirts, as well as a couple of jackets and skirts I managed to nab off eBay while I was away.

Instead of buying a number of small things to fill up my suitcase, I opted to hunt out a couple of quality items I'd been wanting instead - as well as continuing my love affair with the breton stripe top - to avoid post-holiday shopping regrets, something that has plagued me many times after a large trip. Now, I just need to wait for the weather to warm up and the rain to go away so I can get both those pairs of shoes on my feet!



  1. Love the heels you bought!
    I've been scrolling through your vacation pics just now, and I'm slightly jealous. I looks like you were in paradise! Beautiful pictures!! :)
