Fashion & Beauty | Autumn Haul ft. Primark and Topshop



Now that Summer is definitely behind us, I thought it was time to go shopping for some Autumn staples for my wardrobe. After a few separate shopping trips, I thought I'd show you everything collectively in one big haul!










Camel Crombie Coat £23 - Primark
Tartan/Houndstooth Reversible Scarf £6 - Primark
Pug Slippers £3 - Primark 
Aztec Print Umbrella £4 - Primark

After checking in Primark a fair few times, I finally hit jackpot and found the coat I'd been wanting in a size eight. I'd been searching for a new coat after deciding I wanted something more sophisticated than my khaki parka I've had for the past couple of years and this coat seemed perfect. It's amazing quality, especially for the price and the cut is super flattering. I'm so happy with it and I've barely taken it off since getting it.
Also in Primark, I picked up a couple of A/W essentials; Slippers and an Umbrella. As I have a pug I couldn't resist these fluffy slippers and the umbrella is definitely a must now I no longer have a hooded coat.
As the coat I got is a tad simple, I thought I'd get this fur collar to jazz it up and make it look a little more expensive. If you want to see what this looks like on, I did an OOTD post here wearing both the items. I also got this tartan scarf to wear with the coat when it gets a bit colder to give my outfit a pop of colour.
The last thing I got for clothing was a pair of jeans from Topshop. I'd been wanting some Joni jeans for a good few months but waited to make sure I could maintain my weight loss before I forked out the cash for them. I'm utterly in love with these jeans, they are super comfy and look so flattering as they're high waisted.
Whilst in Topshop, I also picked up some beauty items...






Nail Polish in 'Mini Marshmallows' and 'Little Duck' £5 - Tanya Burr

As there was a two for £12 offer on in Topshop, I took full advantage and bought three lipsticks and one lip bullet. I absolutely love the formula of the Topshop lipsticks and had been wanting to add to my collection for some time. 
On the topic of beauty, I also picked up another Pro Palette as my first one is now full. I've put in my Omega shadow although I have actually had this a while. It's the perfect shade for filling in my eyebrows and also to add a subtle definition to my crease. 
Finally, as there was an offer on Tanya Burr cosmetics, my sister kindly bought me these two nail polishes. Sadly, I'm yet to wear either of these as I haven't had the time to paint my nails so I don't know how good they are but the colours look lovely and I'm really excited to try these ASAP.

So that's everything I've picked up recently! I spent a fair bit of money but I know everything will last me all season so I'm pretty happy with it all. 
What do you think of my picks?
Are you all set for Autumn or do you need to go shopping too?

  1. I'm dying to get a Mac Pro-Palette, I just can never decide on the shades to go in it! Aren't the pug slippers so comfy too?! I bought them a couple of weeks ago and I swear I've not taken them off my feet since! xo
