Good day everybody, I'm doing a mini haul today if you didn't quite gather that from the title,Anyway's I want to start of by saying that there is a lot of stigma attached to haul blogs and videos as many people believe it's showing off and the like. As everyone knows I am piss poor so I cant possibly be "showing off" my "multiple impulse buys". No. I simply wish to share my new season staples with you as a few of them were in my Wishlist and I'm ecstatic to have them! So yeah, please consider this aswell with any future Hauls I do, as I really dont want to post this dreary and tiresome introduction every time!

So, as I have made clear, I am an exceptionally broke student at the moment! But luckily I prefer fashion to food shopping so I was

able to pick up a few items in the last two weeks.

Faux Flower Crown~ New Look

In my Springtime Wishlist below, I said how badly I longed for one of these little babys, and I got one! I especially love the leaf detail and oversized style of the flowers. Reminds me of Summer... Tea Dress~ Topshop
Another wishlist item come true! I got it in the petit section so it's the perfect length for one with the dreaded curse of shortness.

Leopard Print Vest~ River Island
Can you call it Leopard Print when it's a print of actual leopards? Meh. Anyways unbelievably this badboy only set me back 15euro! Delightful.
Midi Skirt~ Primark(Penneys)
I adore the dusky pink of this midi, only setback is its a size 16 so basically without a belt it hits the floor, but my dark brown leather belt gives it a rather adorable paper bag waist effect.
Now some Jumble Sale Gems!!
I got these amazing real leather brogues in the Clare Galway Sunday Market for a meagre 5euro!
Never been worn before, They have the most exquisit eyelet laser cut detailing.
They have a really interesting Creeper clumyness to them.

I also picked up this last season Denim Topshop dress for... wait for it........ 4euro!

I bought this dress before for full price in Topshop but left it in Spain after a holiday without even wearing it once, so I'm delighted to have it back once again.

Springtime Wishlist †

Every Season I torture Myself with a little (long) list of items I really really want and intend on purchasing in the coming season. Usually they're wardrobe staples, things I will wear many times in the foreseeable future. These are the most prominant things in my mind but trust me, if I gave you the full list we'd be here for days.

~1 Inverted Crucifix Shirt
Iv'e actually wanted one of these for so long, I already have about 3 straight up crucifix shirts but there's something a little edgier about an inverted cross. Orange Circle Clothign does some amazing ones where the crucifix can be pattered in any print you want, like tartan, aztec or cosmic. They're a tad pricey as their personally customized by you and printed by them, but they're amazing, I will definitley be investing.

2~ Fake Flower Headband
I really want a faux flower crown! They're so ethereal and fairy like, they remind me of the flower fairy books I used to pour over when I was a child.
Lana Del Ray seems to be championing floral headbands at the moment, fingers crossed the highstreet will catch on and start producing some, I know there were some in Primark and the like last Summer but at the time I had no interest. Shame on me.

Crucifix Ring
I already have three crucifix rings in black, gold and silver, but what I'm really looking for now is a more interesting alternative for the spring, maybe a wooden or studded or glitter one..
I'm contemplating making one myself so we'l see how that pans out!

4~ Topshop Studded Vectra flats
I absolutely adore these Topshop flats. There such a coveted item nowadays, you can hardly move in blogger world for posts and images of the Vectra. Unfortunetly I'm extreamly broke right now, and they're rather pricey! I love them in cram too, but I will always have a penchant for little black flats.

Topshop Tiger Jumper
As a long suffering lover of Grandad Jumpers, oversized crazy print knitted and jersey jumpers, I instantly fell in love with this tiger print wonder.

~6 Topshop Jersey Dress
I'm all for comfy staples that you can throw on with a chunky necklace on the go and still look good, so when I saw they grungey gray t-shirt dress I knew we were meant to be together.
Its a speckled gray material and I've tried it on in Topshop and it's just so comfy and versatile.
Hopefull I can save up and splurge! It also comes in a longer length but being a teeny 5'4 I went to the Petit section for the shorter version.
