Carboot haul #5

I'm so excited that it's coming up to Summer and the car boot sales are back on again! I have been waiting all year for these, they literally make me so happy! :) I've only been to two so far because I'm still in my uni town and the closest ones are a car ride away, but when I go home for Summer, me and my boyfriend tend to go every single week. I've picked up a few bargains so far, and I'm so excited for all the goodies I'm gonna find over this Summer.

This lovely floral silk shirt was only £1 and I think it will look lovely for a night out with some black disco pants.This tapestry bag was also £1. I already have lots of little tapestry bags and boxes, but this one had a little mirror in and I thought it could replace my tatty Primark make up box I've been using :)

This burgundy checkered shirt was brand new and had a label on for £9.99 but when I asked how much it was the lady only wanted £2. I've been looking for a burgundy checkered shirt on the high street recently so this is perfect! I also bought this striped shirt (for a bargain 50p) as it is similar to one I've seen in the Topshop sale and will be great to chuck on with a statement necklace and leggings for uni. My boyfriend says it reminds him of his work uniform but I like it.

I'm such a fan of granny blouses and I'm pretty sure I don't need any more, but for 50p and £1 you can't go wrong! I couldn't find the tag on the left one but I'm sure it's just from Primark or another high street store. I love the colour and detailing on it, and will definitely be wearing it with lots of gold jewellery. I love the simplicity of the white shirt with the big gold button, and I'll be wearing it to uni with a little cardigan :)

Lastly, I picked up two little pieces for my uni room. The first was this Yankee Candle mini for £3. The man was selling loads of them so he obviously bought them in bulk as the small ones are usually £8. I wish I'd picked up more to be honest as they make lovely presents and smell gorgeous! Secondly was this lovely little floral sewing machine ornament for 50p. I study Fashion Design at university so I spend a majority of my time on a sewing machine, and I love all things floral!
