Summer Splurge




As you can guess from the title of this blog post, I've been shopping again, this time in Primark. Now I know how much you all love my primark hauls so I thought I would share with you another one, I honestly can't stop buying things from Primark at the moment, especially as holiday season is just creeping round the corner, and primark have some fantastic clothes which are perfect for holidays, summer nights out and well basic everyday wear. 



Trousers - £12

I firstly came across these gorgeous trousers, now I'll be honest with you these trousers are something I would never normally contemplate picking up let alone trying on, I didn't think these were going to look great on me like "I can't pull off floral trousers" but they actually look really really nice on and fit really well, I absolutely love them! they are navy with black and white poppy print on them. I do feel like I've stepped out of my disco pant comfort zone, but I really really like them, they are stretchy and are extremely good quality they've got a zip and button as you can see in the pictures above, these are new in and are selling out pretty fast so buy these while you can! If I didn't know where these were from, I would have said Zara because they are such good quality and Zara are known for their floral trouser, I love the print on them & I just think these will look really nice with the pair of heels I bought the other day.

Tops - £5 each

Now my next two items, I've been trying to find in my size but hadn't had any luck until I went in the other day, one you probably have seen before if you're a returning reader, and it's this stripe crochet light crop top. I picked up another one in the navy and cream as you know you can have one on, one in the wash ect. I also picked the same one up in just plain black as you know you can never have to many basic tops, they're extremely lightweight to pack as well if you're going on holiday.


Dress - £10

sticking along the theme of stripes and navy I came across this lovely striped ribbed bodycon dress, I don't really tend to buy bodycon dresses but I absolutely loved this basic dress, I love stripey things so this was a definite must have, you know what it's like you pick things up, your hand pops them in the basket and before you know it ends up at the till paid and purchased hahaha. It's Navy blue & white/cream stripes (it looks like black and white stripes in the photo but it is actually Navy and white) This too feels like really good quality, what I like about this particular dress is that you can either dress it up or dress it down.




Blouse - £10

Next up I brought another blouse, as I have a slight (actually huge) obsession with collared tops and shirts, I really like the print on this blouse, it's a bit out there but I think this would look nice undone with the black crochet cami underneath and a pair of my disco pants or black jeans. This too is quite summery and in your face but teamed up with the right things I think this would look like a really pretty. It is a bit retro but the 50s 60s and 70s prints are in at the moment.


Shorts - £4

I also picked these flower print cotton shorts, you could either wear these as pyjama style shorts or just ones to chuck on over a bikini if you're on holiday. I liked the floral print on these and the frill edging, these are also perfect if it's a particularly sunny and hot day and you don't really want to wear trousers or a skirt.




Jeans - £8

Now I've heard quite a lot about primark jeans, some people love them some people hate them, I've heard quite mixed reviews, so I thought now was about time that i put them to the test and give you my true opinion and aid you in some way if you are thinking about purchasing a pair. I would firstly like to say that I've actually picked up the wrong size as primark I believe have increased their size 6s & 8s slightly but never the less the fit is quite good (mine are a size 8 but they are just slightly too long in the leg) I personally prefer high waisted jeans/trousers (I'm not a lover of jeans, disco pants & leggings are my comfort zone). The quality is good for £8 I do however think with these that you get what you pay for, the colour doesn't fade after a wash, they are stretchy and have extremely good wearing power, I do think they are good I just wish I could find a pair that are high waisted and then I'd be sold.




Trinket Box - £3

Moving away from clothes whilst wandering the homeware section a came across this really cute little trinket box, I like that this is very ideal for putting little things in like rings or bracelets ect that was only £3. 



I also brought this long maxi skirt as I like to (on chilly days) wear a maxi skirt and a sweater, so I picked this really lovely long plain grey maxi skirt, it comes with a belt and I just really like the feel of the material, it's that floaty lightweight material, and that was only £8.

and that was all I brought in primark, I just really love their clothes and homeware at the moment, it's affordable and there's something for everyone for every price range.

Let me know what you have been loving in primark and if you would like to see me do more of these
