Essential Summer T-shirt & Big Wardrobe Haul

I came across this post on the blog 'A little Bird Told Me' about the essential summer tshirt, and when I went into Primark on Saturday I came out with my very own! I bought it in red but I would say it is more of an orangey-red, very summery though and the material almost has a sheen to it!
This is the stock image of it in taupe and then how I wore it with skinny jeans. Its such a great t-shirt that I'm thinking of getting it in other colours once I find out how it wears and washes.
Tshirt Primark £8
Jeans New Look vis ebay 99p
Wedges M&S £9

I came home today to a large package, I was expecting it but its always nice. It was a mutli-swap from a lovely girl on Big Wardrobe if you havn't heard of it, its a website where you can swap clothes, shoes, accessories and other things. Its a way to save some money as all you are paying is postage and you get to refresh your wardrobe all the time. If you sign up then you can do it through my referral and then check out the swaps in my wardrobe!

Here is what I got today, apologises for the creases:

A gorgeous tie back dress originally from ASOS, I have been trying not to get more black but I love the cut of this dress and the fabric is really lovely.
Another ASOS dress, its a subtle light tan colour with buttons down the side, this will be a great summer dress once it's ironed of course!
Finally, a capped sleeve white shirt from New Look, it has attractive pleats and ruffle detail which you can't really see and I think it will look lovely worn open over a vest as well.

What do you think to today's bargains?
