A bit of a haul

Hey guys!

 So the other day I went for a shop and ended up with rather more than I intended! I personally always like to have a nosey at what other people get on shopping trips, so thought I'd share with you!

I don't normally think to go to Republic but was rather pleased with what I found this time

'Geek' tee, £13
  I'm really pleased with the fit of this T-Shirt. It's fitted in shape, but I bought it a size up. It means it is baggy, but because of the cut it doesn't make me look like I'm wearing a sack. The cotton is a really nice feel and good amount of stretch and it looks great with black jeans.

Cute floral blouse, £20

Again, I really like this, and it is long enough that I can wear it with shorts or leggings. Also it looks really sweet with:

Pontelle jumper, £25
Which is really flattering on, and also super warm! The neckline is really good for having a little buttoned up blouse underneath. They don't seem to have it in my colour online, but they do have it in  khaki or stone.

 While I was at the jumpers I also went for this one as a good all round staple:

I know elbow pads aren't everyone's cup of tea, but I think they're sweet and this sit just in the right place for me. I can't find this one online and my receipt is at home rather than uni, so I'm afraid I can't tell you the price of this one but I reckon it must have been around the same as the other.

Lastly I bought this, which I appreciate the photo does nothing for:

Polar neck dress, £18
 I actually tried this dress on a size smaller, which fitted fine, but I decided I wanted a more relaxed fit so I would be able to wear it day to day as well. So I haven't tried this exact one on, but those arm holes look huge, so it may be winging its way back soon! This is my most risky purchase though, as I don't entirely know what I'm going to wear it with at the moment. But I'm trying to be more adventurous with my outfits this year and for £18 and a student discount on top of that, I thought I'd give it a go!

So there you have it everyone- my random Republic splerge. I was going to have a look at their dupe disco pants after my last post, but they only had them in very exciting colours, and I'm certainly not feeling that brave just yet!!


  1. I really like that Geek top, looks like you got some great things!
