New Purchases: Dungarees, Skirts, Jeans & More

I haven’t done a new purchases post in quite some time, so I thought it was about time that I did one. I have been sharing with you a few new things here and there, but I haven’t really been on a big shopping spree in a while, so I thought it was about time that I did!

I had been wanting a pair of denim dungarees (or overalls to my American readers) for a really long time. I used to wear dungarees a lot as a child and I am so glad they have came back in fashion! I purchased these G-Star denim dungarees in It Aged online at ASOS in the sale for an amazing price! I definitely couldn’t say no to the sale amount, plus an extra 10% off as well, so I snapped them up and I adore them! The best thing about them is they are slightly slouchy, but they are skinny, so they don’t have that ‘mom vibe’ about them at all! I will have an outfit post featuring these dungarees really soon!

I also purchased this adorable burgundy humming bird skirt from ASOS in the same order. The skirt was a great price and I have been in need of something floaty and easy wearing for this heat wave we are having. The humming bird print on the skirt is really dainty and the fit of it is very feminine and beautiful. I will also have an outfit post this week featuring this skirt!


Each of these rings above were all in the sale at ASOS as well. There is the Krystal Swarovski Tear Drop Gem Ring in Fuchsia, the And Mary Gold Owl Ring and the ASOS Horns Ring. I think the fuchsia crystal ring is my absolute favourite! I wore it on Saturday and it’s gorgeous, but I do think the owls face is adorable and the horns with crystals is unique too. You all probably know by now just how obsessed with statement jewellery I am, so I love purchasing most of my pieces in the sale as you can get great prices on them! It’s definitely worth the wait!

citizens-of-humanity-leatherette-red-james-jeans-moto copy

Here I have a pair of Citizens of Humanity Racer Leatherette Jeans in Rubia and a pair of James Jeans Moto Jeans. I didn’t purchase either of these myself, but I did get sent these jeans by the brands to review on DenimBlog. I already have the Citizens of Humanity Rocket in Leatherette Black, which you have seen me wear numerous times, so I am really excited to finally have the coated red jeans, as I absolutely adore waxed burgundy shades. I also love the moto jeans trend, so I am very happy to have these James Jeans Moto Jeans! I can’t wait to review both of them!


These are a pair of high rise denim shorts from Ruby Starling. I also got sent these shorts by the brand to style and I think they are adorable! I do love higher rise shorts because you can wear them with cropped tops and not feel conscious about having your stomach on display, so these are perfect for that! Plus, I like the wash and the distressing these shorts have, I think Ruby Starling made them well!


These are another pair of denim shorts that I got sent to review. These are the Dittos Denim Love Bird Shorts and they are so much fun aren’t they? The love bird print is really bold and bright and the shorts are a nice fit too. I will be doing an outfit post while wearing these shorts soon as well, they really scream summer to me!

one-galaxy-map-print-jumper-sweater copy

These are two jumpers/sweaters that I purchased out of the blue in TK Maxx in town over the weekend. They are by the brand One and they are actually men’s jumpers, however that doesn’t bother me. I saw them on the rack and fell in love with them! Everything in TK Maxx is really cheap, so I got them for a great price! I love the galaxy print jumper, that’s the one that I originally fell in love with, and then I saw the map/globe print right next to it, which I have a thing for lately, and completely fell for that too! I had to snap up both! Both of these jumpers are available to purchase in TK Maxx in Bristol, London, Birmingham and most other cities! I don’t ever worry the sweaters aren’t for women though!


And finally, I have these gorgeous studded tan and gold sandals from River Island. I purchased these sandals on ASOS as well, with my other order, because I needed some new ones. I don’t generally have many flat sandals because it’s never usually hot here, but with this heat wave I have been in need of some new sandals. I think these are beautiful and I am glad that I found them!

– So, which of my new purchases do you like the most? Comment and let me know!

          I ordered them straight from ASOS as we don’t have any stores here that stock G-Star. Luckily they fitted, I was worried they wouldn’t πŸ™‚ There is a photo on my Instagram (@LornaRaindrops) actually of how they fit, but I will have proper photos soon!
