As winter approaches, I realised I need to update my wardrobe as I’m lacking warmer clothing. When I found out that Boohoo was on sale, I couldn’t resist so I made two orders. This haul will show what I got on both of my orders.
If you want to know what I’ll be wearing this winter season, click below.
When I initially started browsing the site, I had almost 30 items in my cart. That was ridiculous and I would never spend that much money on clothing so I managed to cut it down to 5 items (1 was not pictured in the photo above).
The first one I put in my cart was this long-sleeved top:
This was is called the Sofie Wrap Front Jumper. I love the deep red colour for winter and I don’t have any tops like this. The wrap at the front does show a bit more skin and makes this top slightly sexier so it’s great to have a strappy bra or top underneath.
The other 3 items I got were dresses:
This Freya Turtle Neck Swing Dress has long sleeves and I like it because it’s quite a thin material. I didn’t want a thick knit dress because it would make me look bulkier. I like the pattern of the fabric and colour too.
Following on the long-sleeve knit dress, I got the Grace Rib Knit Jumper Dress. I like the rib fabric of this dress but I have a slight issue with the style and fit. Because it’s a jumper dress, it doesn’t have any shape so if I don’t style with the right things, I would look frumpy. It’s quite comfy though.
The last dress in my first order is this Sally Double Layer Swing Dress. Khaki is quite a trendy colour this autumn/winter and I like it. This dress is another thin fabric but it has a double layer on the top half so it’s still warm. It wrinkles a lot faster though. This would’ve been perfect on me if it was at least 2 inches shorter at the hem. I’m quite short so most dresses unless I get it from the petite range can be quite long.
The last item in my first order was this Laurie Roll Neck Jumpsuit. This was an impulse/random purchase but I’m glad I got it in the end. I love the colour and it fits well. It comes with the belt too but the belt is way too long and I need to wrap it around my waist twice. However, I can use a different belt on this jumpsuit anyway. The only other thing I was initially hesitant about was the wide leg bottoms. I’m not used to it but this is quite a trendy piece that I’d wear for a night out/special occasions/if I go to fashion week again.
On my second order, I was a bit more restrained and only got 2 things.
This Faye Cross Front V-neck jumper was the reason I made a second order. My sister showed met his after I’ve already made my first order as she wanted it in khaki. They didn’t have that in my size when I ordered so I got it in the stone colour instead. I love this. I love the colour as it goes with everything and the style is different to all my other plain jumpers.
My last Boohoo purchase was this Hallie Brushed Knit Rub Dress. I liked this because the sleeves are mid-length compared to the other long-sleeved dresses I got. This feels nice on and I’m loving roll necks at the moment because it means I don’t need a scarf to keep me warm.
Overall, I don’t regret any of my purchases. I know I would be wearing them all in these colder months. My favourite is the cross front jumper but the turtle neck swing dress is a close second.
As for Turbs, he also had a favourite:
If you have a cat, let me know if you have some struggles taking blog photos especially flatlays on the floor because I certainly have. Every time I try take blog photos, Turbo comes rushing to have a sniff around or actually lying on the items and having a snooze.
When I was taking photos for this haul, he chose my new jumpsuit to sleep on. I let him because I didn’t want to wake his cute face. Good to know he finds it comfy too though! Haha
Anyway, that’s all I have for this Boohoo haul today. I’ve tried not to browse on the sale section after my two orders or else I wouldn’t be able to stop myself from buying more. The prices are so cheap and shipping took less than a week for both orders too which was great.
If you want to see a specific item on a proper outfit post, let me know. if you want to get an idea of what they look like on, I did tweet photos when I tried my first order on:
