It’s been a long old while since I last did an ASOS haul and, if I’m really honest, it’s because I have been that inspired by the online brand in recent months. HOWEVER, that doesn’t mean I haven’t been adding things to my ‘saved for later’ or waiting for a discount code like the farmer waits for rain (too Somerset for you? sorry). Then, finally, they did one of their ‘£10 off when you spend…, £20  off when you spend…etc’ so I thought that was finally my time to grab a few bits ready for summer…

…and, lol, what did I get? 

Some ‘classic Sam’ slogan tops and dresses…

not that I need new skirts/ jeans and shorts or anything…

but, anyways, let’s dive straight in, shall we?

Oh, actually, little side note: I've now decided that in my clothing hauls I'm going to let you know what I keep and what I send back 'cos I got fed up of Youtubers doing a haul every other week and not being totally upfront about that sorta thing. You can't spend £200 on ASOS every week, hun, believe me, I've tried!

See?

I love me a slogan t-shirt as you might be able to tell from previous posts (upcoming posts as well) and my Instagram feed and I couldn’t resist getting this one when I saw it was only £12 from Pieces. I thought ‘what the heck, one more can’t hurt…’ and I obviously need a t-shirt that I can categorically ONLY wear on a Sunday. But, I really liked the font and colours on this one and it’s going to look great with a denim skirt or jeans on a snoozy Sunday!

I actually already have this in blue (anyone else always just buy something they love in every single colour variation?) so thought I would try the black but, much like the ASOS jeans this looks very different on. My blue one has more stretch and more give (YASSS) but this one is very stiff and not flattering at all so I’m sending it back. I feel like it would suit you if you’re quite slim and not all that curvy but for me it’s a no.

So.

I bought this with the vision of chucking it on with a pair of sassy sandals (see previous post), an even sassier hair wrap and a basket bag…all sounds great, right? What I didn’t invision is that everyone would also be able to see the care label of my favourite nude undies at the same time. I bloody love this dress so it’s a shame that it’s so damn see-through! C’mon ASOS, you know better than this.

HOWEVER...

This dress does come in gingham print also so I think I’m going to have to order and give that one a go. It’s a shame this one is so see-through as it’s super flattering on and all kind of summer clothing goals.

T R A P E Z E   M I D I  D R E S S (hell yeah, I’m keeping this)

I wasn’t holding out much hope for this dress if I’m completely honest. It was one of those buys where I chucked it on at the end but I would probably send it back as it actually is quite spenny for what it actually is. 

Boy, was I wrong.

The £38 was definitely worth it as the material is amazing (so, so soft) and the fit and length is all working in my favour. Plus, it’s in the print of the season so I had to keep it, didn’t I? I’ve been wearing it either with my black Vans or with loafers and a denim jacket thrown over the top but I actually have an exciting event next week and think I might wear this with some kitten heels to dress it up a little.

Hey look another French slogan t-shirt! 

Okay so, yes, whilst I may have a slight obsession with slogan t-shirts, I also bought this one as I seem to be seriously lacking in just some ‘basics’ in my wardrobe. Y’know the kind of things that you just throw on when you need to get something from the Iceland across the road but still look like you’ve got your shit together? 

Yeah, that. 

Also, this one was just a tenner and, for a piece that’s working those on-trend clashing colours, I’m okay spending that.

I obviously had a think for shirt dresses when I did this order but, unfortunately, they were both super unsuccessful. Why was this one so terrible when is looks so damn pretty?

BECAUSE I HAVE BIG BOOBS AND A SMALL WAIST!

That’s why.

This, much like the other shirt dress I picked up, would suit a ‘straight up & straight down’ body shape…and that ain’t me. I actually just had a little chuckle when I tried this on as it was a) so tight on the chest and then b) looked like I had a kangaroo pouch instead of a tummy. It’s unfortunate as this dress is v pretty (I’m a sucker for a polka dot as you may have noticed) and the silhouette itself is flattering for everyone but, no, not about that Kanga life.

Finally.

WE. HAVE. A. WINNER.

I wanted this dress for ages (I mean, probably two weeks max) but it sold out so fast, like a lot of the ASOS ‘new in’ products do. But, being patient sometimes works and I’m so happy I finally got my hands on this one. It’s very flattering for my bodyshape (gotta love a deep V) and I really love that the sleeves are long enough to cover up that ‘bad part’ of my arms. 

The cute buttons going down the middle also gives a slimming effect which I’m always happy to have as a feature on my clothing.
