When I was invited for an afternoon of personal shopping with Topshop I could barely contain my excitement. It's no secret that Topshop is my favourite high street brand - I don't even really class them as high street anymore, their styles are so on point and I do feel like they're always at the forefront of fashion. Topshop Unique in particular is always the show I want to watch at fashion week and honestly, I feel like Topshop will always have my heart due to it's British heritage and generally amazing pieces. I've always wanted to do personal shopping with them (it's free by the way so go and sign up to do it!) and trust me, it was an amazing experience so I can't wait to discuss it with you!
I went outside to choose some more items on top of what Alva chose for me and was literally walking about the shop floor for a good two hours selecting things - Oxford Street Topshop is the dream. I filled the rail with more clothes than I could ever need.
I fell in love with these two pairs of shoes but obviously couldn't buy them both - I went for the gorgeous ones with the gold heel purely because I feel like they'll go with everything and they're so so comfortable. I honestly haven't taken them off.

Alva brought me some cupcakes and champagne and I was a very happy girl.
The cakes were too good.
The first outfit I tried on was this amazing suede jacket - I don't own a jacket this colour (I always go for black) and I wouldn't ordinarily pick up a jacket like this - this is the good thing about personal shopping, you get to try new things. I honestly didn't think I would like it but I fell in love instantly and actually wish I bought it when I tried it on.

I paired it with black jeans which I actually bought and a lovely vest top again, which I bought, I didn't take the boots off so naturally wore them too. I love this all black mixed with suede look. Topshop jeans are my favourite, they always will be - I've had a pair of the Jamie jeans for at least 3 years now and they just get better in age - they hug the body so nicely and are so comfortable.
Next I tried this two piece - I am a two piece lover and absolutely loved the skirt but personally this one wasn't for me... the jacket just didn't fit me properly.

My favourite outfit of the day, I bought it all oops. This plain black tee with the dreamiest white skirt ever.
The skirt is so simple but I think it works so well for a casual/going out look. I actually wore this skirt to the Boot's Petal Drop event earlier this week and so many people complimented it! It's so easy going I don't think I'm going to take it off all Summer!
I couldn't resist this gorgeous ribbed midi dress, you know when you just put a dress on and fall in love? Yup, this! It hugs the body so nicely and it is so comfortable - another classic dress which is perfect for a day to day basis and a night out.

I told you the boots go with everything!
This gorgeous playsuit was so easy to wear - I loved the back of it.
The mirrors in the changing rooms were perfect for posing and actually seeing the whole outfit from every angle!
My favourite dress of the day has to be this gorgeous number - it's so versatile because it zips all the way down, you could actually wear it over something as like a kind of sleeveless jacket.

I love the colour too - I don't really own any baby pink coloured outfits but I just think this is so simple and lovely.
I couldn't not buy this gorgeous playsuit with it's lovely lace up front detailing.

I tried out some handbags as well because why not! I loved that you could literally take anything into the personal shopping lounge - it was like my girlie sanctuary for the day.

I fell in love with these espadrilles - again, something I wouldn't pick up myself but I am so glad Alva picked them for me as I actually love them. This experience definitely taught me to not rush and to just try things on and experiment a little bit!

I went for an all grey number next, I love the simplicity of this skirt but think it's quite flattering due to the cut of it and I put it with this gorgeous shaped draped shirt.
It was time for a cupcake break - trying on clothes is tiring! It's a good job I had a lot of space and comfortable chairs to chill out on amongst all the clothes in my changing room!
It was time to try on some accessories

I changed tops and went for this top - a really simple crochet crop which goes perfectly with anything.

I then paired it with the matching shorts and the dreamiest leather jacket - the leather jacket of my dreams actually. I bought it and haven't taken it off. It's real leather and Topshop premium so a real life long jacket! I have wanted a proper Topshop leather for years and finally got my hands on this baby!
Topshop beauty is also my favourite at the moment so naturally I picked up some more beauty pieces (coming soon) you can see my fave picks here at the moment!
