Collective Haul - Zara, Mac, H&M, AllSaints and more.

Over the last couple of weeks I've been doing a few shopping trips to various places including London and The Bullring in Birmingham. Here are a few things that I picked up that I thought were uber cute and would work well for Autumn/Winter. Plus there are a few miscellaneous pieces as well. I'll talk about each piece as a go along and will leave links to where you can buy the items yourself if your interested in them :)

This Quilted Jacket I brought whilst I was in London recently. I went to see Shrek The Musical and had some extra time to hit Oxford street and do some light retail therapy. I've wanted one of these jackets for quite a while and a lot of places sell them. The only problem was that I wanted one with a bit of shape which is not really the style of the jacket. A lot of the different varieties that I tried on were boxy and not flattering to the shape. However this Zara Jacket gave a little definition to the waist and looked really cute on with the black trimming and elbow patches. I previously wanted the green Jack wills version but it didn't fit me as well as this one did. I really like this with a lot of different outfits. I'm sure it will occur in an OOTD very soon.
Zara Quilted Jacket - £59.99
I brought this blazer from H&M. I first saw it in the brochure that they sent me whilst I was away on holiday. They sell it in various colours and I really liked the different detail of the tan elbow patches. That style seems to be really in this season so I was really pleased I managed to get my hands on this. It was so hard to get hold off because every store that I went to had sold out, even online was completely gone, but finally it came back in stock in my local store and I snapped it up. Both this blazer and the quilted jacket previous look lovely with the AllSaints shorts below.

H&M Navy Blazer - £29.99
This cardigan was also from H&M. I brought this one on one of the many searches for the blazer above. It is quite baggy, with black elbow patches. This looked really cute with a plain white tank and some blue/black jeans. Perfect for slouching.

H&M Grey Cardigan - £14.99
I brought this pair of shorts and the shorts below in the sale at AllSaints. These were down from £40 to £20 so I snapped them up. Both shorts are quite similar. The first pair is green and crinkled. The picture does not show up very well but they are a dark solid colour. However the beige pair below have distress greyish lines through the front and look very similar to the green pair. The only difference being that they have a button tack where the hangers hold the shorts (refer to the website for more detail). Both look the same at the back with the Allsaints leather badge detail in brown.

AllSaints Green Shorts - £20

AllSaints Beige Shorts - £20
I ran out of my second pot of this foundation and therefore had to restock. I love it. It gives great coverage, it helps keep the shine away from my skin for longer and it lasts forever. What's not to love? Applied with my 187 brush - it's the best combination i've found.

MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation - £19.50
And finially, this was more of a personal purchase. I brought this because my previous album was filled. I used albums like these to fill with tickets from special days and events that I have been to. My previous one they still sell. It was a black crocodile skin looking album with black self adhesive pages. This one has strawberries and flowers on but still has the same adhesive pages as the previous book.

Paperchase Self Adhesive  Album - £10.75
