Simply Be Haul and Wish List

Blogging has been the furthest thing from my mind the last few months. At the start I was busy with university then once all my essays were handed in I was enjoying freedom and trying to build my Instagram presence. My Macbook then broke on me just got as I got back into blogging again but I though sharing my recent Simply Be haul would be a great idea and I'll soon be back with my travel series "6 Reasons To Vist". 

If you do follow me on Instagram you might have seen my recent post sharing my amazing news - I've not even graduated yet (my university has a late graduation in November) and I've got a job in my field! I'm now officially working at Stansted Airport. So with my new job and university done I think I deserve to splurge a little and really treat myself! Not only did I want to treat myself I actually realised I really need new gym clothes as I'm going to start back at the gym once work has got into a better routine. When I started looking for new gym clothes I had loads of faith in myself but once I jumped on the Simply Be site it didn't go as planned, I pretty much got everything gym wear. 

Zoe Distressed Skinny Jeans (Black)*: £30 - I actually ordered these but unfortunately they went out of stock, I'm currently waiting for them to be restocked so they are on my wish list. I'm still obsessed with distressed skinnies so of course during my haul I picked up these beautiful black skinny jeans. They look pretty damn awesome and I'm sure the picture doesn't do them justice. I wasn't too sure on the size as I can range between three sizes in jeans these days but hopefully I can update you on these beauties if they get restocked. I did look at a few other distressed jeans but these were my favourite by far.

Be Stylish Slogan Top: £10 - I'm pretty sure you all know my obsession with distressed jeans and slogan tops. I clearly had to be pick this one up! I wasn't in love with the fitting on this top as I actually got a size bigger than what I normally am and it is pretty fitted but for £10 you can't go wrong!

Grey and Black Mesh Varsity Top: £25 - My first obsession is varsity tops, I wrote about them back in April on my OOTD: Slow Sunday post. This one is a little pricey compared to normal but I'm so in love with it. The quality is pretty good too. I'm not too sure if it's worth £25 (quality wise) but it is so comfy and flattering the price doesn't even matter.

Black Cropped Leggings: £8 - As I said before I've been looking for new plus size gym clothes so initially when I looked on Simply Be I was looking for black sports leggings but I ended up picking up these normal cropped leggings and hoped for the best. They're pretty good quality and you can't go wrong for the price. Hopefully I'll find some sporty ones.

Rust Print Kimono: £12 - I do love a cute kimono, they're awesome. You can wear them with swimwear abroad or just to style a simple outfit. I normally wear mine with a white camisole and a pair of cropped leggings. I'm excited to style this one up.They also true to size, normally find kimonos are massive but these was pretty perfect.

Camisole Vest (White): £12 - Just like the jeans this is unfortunately out of stock in my size, I actually went for a size bigger as I know they can come up on the small side so again, this item is on my wish list and hopefully I'll get it if they restock it. I really need a plain cute camisole as I have a cute blazer this would go perfectly with.

Total spend: £55
Total spend with wish list items: £97!

That's a lot more than I'd normally spend on clothes but I deserve some new things when I've done so well at university and already got a job. I'll be posting more about my items when I wear them, keep an eye out on my Instagram to see sneak peeks before I post about them here. 

What do you think of my Simply Be haul? Would you buy any of these items? Are sports leggings better than normal leggings?
