Whenever I walk passed Primark, I am a weak woman. I recently popped in for basic items such as a new pack of knickers (sorry, definitely not fancy here) and some leggings however, I left with considerably more items in my basket.
When you read this, I will be on holiday in Zakynthos therefore, some items were bought for that very occasion, and others well, Autumn init – almost. I found some pretty nice things in there despite a shift in the season.
I would never describe myself as a blue and white striped shirt kind of gal. However, I recently bought a new pair of white skinny jeans and wanted to work a nautical, fresh and polished look. This oversized, roll sleeve shirt is so nice to throw on for comfort and style. I like to wear it with skinny jeans and loafers/pumps.
I took this gorgeous canary yellow dress off a mannequin. Sue me. Yep I undressed a mannequin in the middle of a HEAVING Primark. I had to buy this in a size smaller than I would usually wear, so the arms are a little tight but the dress itself is pretty oversized. I was really taken with the print and ruffle detailing – not to mention the charming Autumn inspired botanical print. I will be wearing mine this season with black, opaque tights and ankle boots.
Faux velvet, sea breeze shade, bee embroidery. SOLD. I saw these loafer pumps in both the turquoise and burgundy for £8. I opted for the blue as it was just so mesmerising. They’re pretty rigid so take some breaking in before they wear like an old pair of slippers. I have been wearing mine all week and despite a few pinches and niggles, they look super dreamy. Perfect for this time of year when the weather has yet to dramatically change.
I am a sucker for pyjamas. I bought this satin duo with my pending holiday in mind. Obviously, when it’s hot you just want to wear something cool and loose. I believe the whole set was £8 with the items sold separately. Perfect for throwing on when you’re getting ready after a shower and the ditsy floral print is super cute.
Finally, I found myself magnetised to the new season scarves. This super snuggly mustard number really caught my eye! I love oversized scarves at the best of times and I am secretly excited for wearing this one with my oversized, fluffy coats when the air begins to nip.
