Been in my basket #1

Topshop floral and fringe top - £35 
Zara shirt - £29.99
Urban Outfitters tee - £14 in the sale 
Urban Outfitters grey cardigan - £12 in sale 

When I saw the Topshop top in the store my friend immediately pointed it out as being hideous but I absolutely loved it. I wondered round the shop and couldnt stop thinking about it so I just had to get it and I'm so glad I did. It's just up my street - dark floral, fringing, autumn colours. Love, love, love. I'm going to see The Killers on monday so I might wear it there with a maxi skirt, Misguided black denim and leather sleeves jacket and JC style shoe boots. I'm sure I'll be doing a post on what I end up wearing to The Killers. 

I'd been searching for a white shirt for ages but none I saw had been quite right. They were either too see-through or the wrong cut or fabric. That was until I spotted this one from Zara. It has three quarter sleeves, which will be great to showcase a nice watch, a flattering cut and soft, silky fabric. It's also one of those tops that would be perfect for work, but then perfect to wear out after too. 

And finally my Urban Outfitter sale finds. I'd been considering this top when it was full price but I never got round to buying it. It's quite oversized so I like being able to wear it different ways, for example off the shoulder as shown above. I think it looks great with a maxi skirt or jeans too, which is good because it is designed to be crop. The cardigan is great too as the fabric isnt itchy and doesnt have full sleeves. For some reason thats a pet hate of mine. I'm always rolling my sleeves up. 

So, thats what has been in my basket this week. Pay day on friday, which i'm so excited about, even if most of it does need to go into savings. 
What's been in your baskets or your payday treats?
