River Island 50% Off Sale Haul :)

Hello My Lovelies,

I got an email yesterday that today was the 50% off River Island Sale. Most things in store are 50% off however, if you get to the door before 8.00am they give you a wristband which gives you an extra 50% off that sale price which is amazing!! Last year i got a wrist band and got some amazing bargains, went a bit crazy! I didn't go an get a wrist band this morning because i had too much on today, however, i went in after around 1.00pm ishhh with my mum and two cousins Carmela & Rossana and we literally caused some damage on the ol' bank cards haha 

So i leterally just got home, the lighting is absolutely rubbish but i had to do a post on it for you guys. Most of it will be packed for my holiday, i heading to Spain on the 13th July for 2 weeks and then i have a few other holidays lined up which i cannot wait for :)

The first thing i got was this "Cream Lace Cross Back Bralet" this originally was £18 and i got it at a sale price of £10. I've been looking for a few tops like this for so long now, my cousin wore one at the weekend when we went out and i absolutely loved it. Luckily enough they were in the sale :D i also ordered another one online before i went to the store this morning which is a plain black material, however, it has the same detailing. This top will go with soooo many different outfits and i tried it on with the Aztec skirt which you'll see below in a bit and it looked lovely :) 

I then got this "Aztec Print Mini Skirt" i love the aztec print and have a few items with it, however, after seeing loads of Instagram pictures i'd been lusting over an Aztec Skirt so when i saw this it was a no brainer haha :) Originally it was £15.00 however i got it at a sale price of £8.00. Like i said above, i tried this skirt with the Laced Bralet above and it looks so nice together :) definitely an outfit for the holidays me thinks :D 

I then got a few smaller items, a white laced Bandeau top which was originally £12.00 but got it for £5.00. I got a a plain black one a few weeks ago and i've worn it out a few times under blouses and i loved how it looked so when i saw this i i had to get it :) 
I then got this Bejeweled Turquoise Bikini Top which was originally £22.00 but i got it for £10.00. I got a similar one to this last year except its a kind of moss greeny gold shade and i loved that, this turquoise shade is stunning and reminds me of 'For Audry' by China Glaze :) now they didn't have the matching bottoms in my size so i opted to get a plain black pair, they do have some floral detailing on the sides which is lovely, i've tried it on together and it looks really nice. I am loving alternative my bikinis at the moment and it'll be definitely something i'll be doing this year. The bottoms were originally £10.00 but i got them for £5.00

Every haul i have done lately their has been something stripped in it haha so when i saw these stripped leggings in store i just had to get them :) i got the classic white and black stripped and also the blue and white stripped. They are super duper comfortable and light weight. Originally they were £16.00 but i got them at a sale price of £10.00 each

Eeeeeep i love these Neon Pink Shorts!! I'dd had my eye on these for a while, every time when i saw them in store i was always so tempted to get them, however, some times i try to hang on for sales but some times you cant help impulse purchases haha These are going to be perfect for the summer :) These were originally £20.00 but i got them for £10.00. I also purchased a pair online before i went into the store this morning, they are Hot Pink & Green ombre effects, as soon as they arrive i will do a post on them too :)

I then got this 'Nude Aztec Print Laced Dress' it's really unusual and i love skater dresses. I think they are very flattering and comfortable :) This was originally £35.00 but i got it for £15.00 which i thought was a really good price. It does come up a little too short for me, as i am quite tall, well my legs are quite longs haha so i'm thinking i'll need to wear some black tights underneath it, otherwise everyone will have a lovely view of my bum ;) 

I then got this oversized 'LOVE' top which i thought would be great for Cheerleading practice and working out. It is super comfortable and the arm holes are quite large so i could wear one of my bandeau tops underneath :) This was originally £15.00 but i got it for £6.00

I was just about to queue up when i saw this "Orange Halter Neck Playsuit" i thought it was something great to have when going out to buy something really quickly when staying at our Villa. Something i can quickly pop on and go straight out the door with my bikini on :) It was originally £20.00 but i got it for £8.00. 

The last thing we got in store were these really cute shoes :) These are a "Cream Peep Tow Wedge with an Aztec Print Wedges" they are very unique and extremely comfortable :) They are for Mum but i know i'll be wearing them too ;) They were originally £40.00 and i got them for £20.00

Overall, i am extremely happy with my purchases, i did got a little crazy and i had a little laugh with the sales assistant. I'm glad i decided to pop into the store as well as order online because they had a lot of different items. 

Like i mentioned earlier these are the items i ordered online from the River Island 50% sale. When these arrive i will make sure to do a post on them :)

Hope your all good and your Summer is going great so far!

Lots of Love
