My Shopping Habits & Spring Holiday Haul
Updated: Apr 14, 2020
The chances of us going on our family trip for Easter this year are pretty slim. Was I looking forward to 8 days in the Middle Eastern sun, no laundry and cooking to worry about and having quality time as a family? Of course. The Corona virus pandemic has made it unsafe for us to travel (I do not want to get stuck in Abu Dhabi should the UK go into lockdown) and unless the situation drastically changes between now and the Easter holidays- which I highly doubt- it looks like we will be cancelling our trip. I do hope that schools will close soon so I can have the girls at home and not do the school run which in my opinion is the hardest part of parenting.
Of course I had already bought my holiday clothes for the trip. I got rid of a lot of clothes when we moved house 2 months ago- I keep clothes for years (I still have stuff from over 10 years ago) and rewear A LOT- to be honest I was just sick of the same holiday clothes so it was the perfect chance to get some new pieces. I don't get a new wardrobe for every season but by the time I want some cute spring or summer pieces, it's already July and all the good clothes are gone. So this year I was ahead of the game (for once) and managed to snag some great bits.
Before we get into the haul, I want to make clear that I NEVER buy high end designer clothes. Personally, I think it's a waste of money unless maybe you get staples which you can rewear over and over again? But even then, I just couldn't justify spending £700 on a pair of trousers. I love high street fashion which is affordable; I shop anywhere from Whistles, Abercrombie & Fitch to Zara, H&M and Primark and when I no longer want the items, I give them away to family members or charity so I don't feel awful about spending a ton of money on them. Instead of wearing designer clothes, I love to accessorise high street clothes with designer bags, shoes and brooches.
