We're only happy when we're shopping

I have gone a little crazy this month when it comes to shopping. I've placed 4 ASOS orders as well as buying a few things from e-bay and such. I hadn't gone shopping or placed orders in absolutely ages. I was so drowned in school assignments, that I didn't have the time or the energy to actually have a little browse online, even when I desperately wanted to. But now I've completed my Higher National Diploma, and I'm now going onto my degree year. I actually managed to get a Summer placement programming job, which I'm super excited for, if not just a tiny bit scared! But, now that I'm actually going to be having a job, I can actually get started with a few things that I've been wanting to do for a while, including... Shopping! Links will be provided under each image!
So ASOS order first. ASOS actually have a 70% off sale at the moment, and I'm absolutely loving it.

Pretty Twisted Floral Shorts €35.21 [I actually bought these on ebay]
From Missguided, I only bought one item as well. It was the very first time I was placing an order on Missguided, so I didn't know what the quality of the clothing was going to be like at all. The quality is pretty decent, and there's quite a list of things I want from there now. ALSO, there's a sale going on their website if you're interested!

Once upon a dream

Top: Miss Selfridge | Shorts: Miss Selfridge | Shoes: New Look | Bag: Next
I finally wore this combination. Last Summer I had posted this little haul. I had been looking for both these items for quite a while, and I thought..someday I'm going to wear this outfit as a combination! And the day came, when I went to see Maleficent. Has anyone seen that movie yet? I couldn't take my eyes off the screen and I wanted to cry. It's the first time Disney has actually taken the perspective of the witch and it was a very nice change! Disney is really changing things around, first with Frozen and now with Maleficent. If you're into Fairy Tales and the psychology behind them, there's a really good book called The Witch Must Die by Sheldon Cashdan. 
I really want to talk about Maleficent in absolute detail, but I can't! I don't want to be giving away spoilers to people who haven't watched the film yet. So, about the outfit. I was actually debating whether or not to wear a necklace with the top, but then opted out. I actually also wore this top with a black maxi skirt with a thigh high split. Very Taylor Swift inspired!
