(Massive) Haul: Recent Purchases Part 1

As I've been absent from ellie etc for over a month now (sorry sorry sorry, endless sorrys!), and also due to the fact I am a raging shopaholic - there have been many, many purchases in the time I've been away! Down to the sheer number of items I've splurged out on, this haul post is going to be a four-part-er. So here is part one! 




























I've realised this haul is looking like I've gone all monochrome (besides the pineapples)! I have to say I feel very chic and sophisticated (again, besides the pineapples), I quite like this monochrome theme.

Black and White Spotty Crop Top - New Look (similar here)



























I've had this top for a while now, so sadly it's no longer available online! However I have linked to another very similar one which I may have to nab too, as it's also very nice! I've developed a recent obsession with crop tops, especially due to the heatwave we've had the past month or so! This top is great because it's not too cropped so is a bit more conservative than some crop tops I've seen! 

Black Mesh Pumps - Topshop via Next2Nowt


























These absolute beauties were another of my (steadily increasing number of) Next2Nowt finds! They're originally from Topshop and their upper is made of mesh with black embroidery decorating it. They are so unlike any other shoes I've seen before and I have to say, I've had so many compliments on them! 

White Cross Over Strap Crop Top - Missguided
I always feel I wear too much black/grey coloured clothes, and that I have very little white in my wardrobe, so I thought I would have to change that - also I think white is much more of a summery colour than black or grey. This top is another crop top, but with the little cross over strap at the hem making it a bit more interesting! I just need to be careful not to get dodgy tan lines from it, if I wear it on holiday!


Pineapple Crop Top - Missguided



















Another crop top I know! But how cool is this print?! I've really fancied a top with pineapples on for a while (don't ask why, I'm not quite sure of it myself!), and this one fits the bill perfectly. It's also got more of a swing-cut to it, making it nice and loose (and cool for when I'm on holiday) - as well as adding more white to my currently gloomy wardrobe!  

Black Wedge Heels - Primark 


























More beautiful shoes, this time from good old Primark! They have a faux leather stripe round the bottom of the wedge which adds a bit more to the simple design. I love wedge heels, they're so much easier to walk in, but I especially love these because they have straps which are more like stiletto straps, so they are a bit more open.  

Black and White Clutch Bag - New Look






And finally, this cute little clutch! I remember saying a while ago, after my Studded Clutch post that I would get more clutch bags. This one caught my eye as it's got a nifty little strap at the front to slip your hand through, so you don't have to worry too much about dropping it! (Being as clumsy as me, that is always a worry haha!) 

Have any of you bought these items or similar recently? And if so what do you think of them? Comment and let me know!
