Look, if you don’t hear from me ever again it’s because I finally succumbed to the will of God and joined a nunnery. Because this week . . . reaffirmed my faith. I now know miracles are real. I now know that sometimes the powers that be reach a hand down into our insignificant lives and give us a helping hand.
What am I talking about?
This week, whilst scouring the internet for some summer purchases, I offhandedly remembered a store where they sold kimono and shorts co-ordinate sets (because I was hardly going to forget that, was I?) and decided to see what stock they currently had on.
Look, I don’t know what good I’ve done in my life, but maybe it’s because I helped that guy with directions earlier this week or something. Because karma fucking niced me. Why? ARK was in the final hours of their closing down sale – which meant there was a 50% off everything coupon on top of all the existing sales and offers.
So, as this was obviously some kind of sign, I carried out God’s will and did a bit of shopping!
My first purchase was a silky champagne pink co-ordinate set. I got really lucky with this (and not just because it’s worth a little over £40 for the set and I got it for £7) because, as I jumped into the sale late, there wasn’t much left – so to find a matching set I liked – and one that was in my size – was pretty unlikely.
Next up was this really cute camel/beige halter neck dress. This was £7 and I didn’t expect much, more picking it to throw underneath a kimono – but the fabric is gorgeous and silky and . . .
I’m such a happy girl right now.
The last thing I bought was this cute button-up satin cami. I’m really in love with vests in different styles and fabrics like this at the moment due to crop tops and myself parting ways. The cami is the new crop top. I no longer have to cry at the prospect of summer.
The next purchase wasn’t actually from Ark, but I feel like it needs to be mentioned anyway.
These olive trousers are from Boohoo and they were, I believe, £8 in the sale.
So I’m pretty pleased with this little haul! I now have more faith in summer and the possibility that I won’t just have to stay inside and wear a burka to avoid picking outfits. Did you guys like my picks?
