I need to set several things straight: I’m still not over sweatshirts (how can I be, they’re SO damn comfy and there’s something about them that makes me feel a *bit* like I could be Pinterest-worthy), I’m still lusting over every suede piece the high street is throwing at me, although despite THAT red suede biker jacket, I’m yet to invest my money where my mouth is, oh, and I’m in the midst of one of those full-blown I HATE EVERYTHING I OWN phases.
I keep trying to talk myself out of it. Keep trying to remind myself that material posessions don’t equate to happiness, but it’s not enough to stop me watching about 27 different peasant dresses on eBay and keep me from sauntering into a New Look to hunt out one of the mega chic culotte jumpsuits I’ve featured below. WILL they suit me? I have no idea, but I’m just picturing myself with a dreamy Egyptian back drop posing in one of those over on Instagram and it makes my soul ache with need.
Some bloggers might approach brands at this point and ask for some pieces, or maybe that’s just something I assume other bloggers do, but it makes me feel a little bit dirty. I’m within reach of my quarterly pay day, but my bank balance is looking really sad and I really can’t justify anymore fashion spends right now – although I could easily get myself worked up into a manic mood and accidentally on purpose bulk order a £100 worth of pretty, loose floral bohemian numbers off ASOS with the justification that life is for living. And I work hard. And that’s what credit cards are for.
DO NOT TALK YOURSELF INTO THIS HANNAH.
Without further ado, these are the pieces that keep me awake at night.
