We're Heading Northe, Heading Home

*I will apologise in advance that the better quality pictures are at the bottom of this post*

On Tuesday I headed up north to see my family in County Durham. After a 2 and a half hour drive I took a break from the driving and my Mum whisked us up to the Metro Centre for a lovely day out.

Dress: Dorothy Perkins (£20) , Ombre Cardi: Primark (£5 in sale), Boots: Barratts (years old)

Contrary to my miserable facial expression I was in a good mood; just squinting like hell because it was such a bright sunny day!

We started off in IKEA. I do love me some IKEA <3 We spent about £25 between us, with only £1.50 of that being my Mum's... I'll do a better post on what we got as hilariously I went to see my Mum with one overnight bag and subsequently came back with a car load. Spoilt isn't the word!

We also visited literally every shop in the Metro Centre and I couldn't believe some of the gorgeous bits that Topshop and Miss Selfridge had in their sale sections! 
Stunning dress in Topshop for only £15! So flattering too!

These beauties were from Miss Selfridge (L - £20 R - £10!)

I'm a bit miffed that I didn't purchase any of these lovelies but I think I had spent enough that day! I did however get a few bits from Primark and dress from H&M.


It must be said, I seem to be very drawn to blue dresses! This dress was £13 and I couldn't resist because it's firstly a lovely flock print, my favourite(!) and secondly it's a skater style, the most super flattering for me. The bra was reduced down to £3 and is very lovely quality. Primark seem to have upped the quality of some of their underwear and it feels somewhat of a luxury to wear! I couldn't resist the little bird, he was only £1.50 :)

I absolutely love this one from H&M. I try to stray away from black clothing due to my skin condition but I couldn't help myself with this. It was only £14.99 and it feels so soft with a flow-y chiffon material at the bottom and lace at the top with a see-through back. Lovely jubbly!

Hope you like this post! Have you ever been to the Metro Centre or bought bits from IKEA recently?
