The Next #nextlockin this Wednesday was seriously kinda amazing. Imagine getting tipsy with a whole bunch of your mates in a cool bar for free then taken to a store that's closed to the public, given a £100 gift card and told to choose whatever you want? That's like a dream I had, not a word of a lie. But it TOTALLY happened!
Me debating with Ellie whether this bag should come home with me. (SPOILER: it should!)
Running around the store was so much fun. I talked Lucy into getting this pair of Next boots that I own and adore, caught up with Clare and Kirsty, ran around grabbing bits with Ellie and had lots of giggles in the changing room with Becky, Jasmine, Hayley, Kristabel, Olivia and Maria.
I was feeling utterly self-conscious so didn't get any pictures snapped by the official guy myself but I wanted to share some of friends and favourite looks! Doesn't Ellie look amazing in that lace dress?
...and here's what I picked! I did add a little bit of money myself but I feel like I crammed quite a lot into my £100 voucher, to be honest.
AMY'S NEXT PICKS
Thermal knee high socks two pack // £10
Berry Leather look PU A-line skirt // £25
Green tartan check bag // £26
Black mini spot print tapered trousers // £30
Chunky crew neck (from the men's department) // £42
After debating, the bag DID come home with me. I've been looking at the skirt for a while - it's on my My Favourite Colour board on my Pinterest! - and absolutely loved it on. And, although it blew my budget, I couldn't leave the menswear knit behind. It's just too perfect - I can see myself snuggling up in it for years.
I can't wait to show you these pieces in outfits. Thanks, Next!
