I've been back from America for just over a week now so it's about time I showed you guys everything I got whilst I was there! For those of you who are reading the item list with no idea what Goodwill is, it's like a huge charity shop where everything is $4.99 or less (usually!), we went twice during my stay and as you can see I picked up some absolute bargains - I'm probably most proud of the 100% silk, navy t-shirt that will be so perfect for A/W. Although I was often shopping in the 30 degree heat I tried to pick up mostly basics and pieces for the upcoming season; I always get way too excited way too quickly for A/W and this year has been no exception! I'm in love with these highwaisted laser-cut leather shorts and everything velvet and tartan - I'm also looking forward to trying out all of these new nail polishes, Prairie Rose has vast become an unexpected favourite of mine and Mystic has such a beautiful opal-like shimmer.

Let me know if there's any items in particular here you'd like to see in an outfit post!

Love Ellen xx
