If you’ve been following this blog, then you know that this girl can’t go traveling without doing some serious shopping. So that’s exactly what I did. I already mentioned in my travellog that I went shopping the day before we left and I got some other trinkets along the way. As promised, there are a few more things with polkadots! I got some clothes, accessories, books, CDs, shoes (of course) and some make up. I didn’t buy that much make up and nothing too interesting so that isn’t pictured.
high waisted denim shorts (Top Shop)
I had been looking for high waisted denim short for some time, but none of them fit me right. This one does and it was on sale too!
cream polkadot dress (Top Shop)
I love the retro 50’s style of this dress. The collar is the cutest!.
baggy dark grey polka dot shirt (Forever 21)
Yup, Dublin has a Forever 21. They had tons of similar tops with different colors and prints, but I liked this one best.
denim button down (Forever 21)
Same as with the high waisted shorts. Wanted one for ages, couldn’t find one that fit right. This one does and it wasn’t that expensive.
black & white polka dot jumpsuit/ romper (Urban Outfitters)
Possibly my favorite buy from the entire trip! I took it into the dressing room thinking it was a dress. I only noticed the shorts in them when I tried it on. Fits like a glove and isn’t uber short like most rompers.
Book, CDs & DVD (HMV, random book stores)
Books: Folk & Fairytales of Ireland compiled by W.B. Yeats, Melmoth the Wanderer by Charles Robert Maturin, Water for Elephants by Sarah Gruen.
