I hope you're having a great Sunday!
Recently I took a trip to Primark and to be honest I went a bit mad! It was one of those times when you're just in the mood to shop, you know? The Primark I visited (in Bristol) was also really well laid out, not too busy and nice and breezy... In other words, perfect shipping conditions!
Here's what I picked up...
I saw this in the corner of my eye and knew I just HAD to have it! Anyone who knows me will know I am a leopard print fiend and so this printed blazer suited me down to a T. I like to team leopard print with a red lip because I think it looks really chic, but it can also be worn with skinny jeans or leather trousers for a more casual look.
This also caught my eye straight away! Without sounding snobby, I like things that look expensive - but actually aren't! - and this woodland print dress looked like something straight out of Zara. It's a little on the pricey side for Primark but it's worth it for the fashion-forward print in my opinion.
I'm instantly drawn to anything cream/lace/sleeveless in the summer so this is perfect for me. I'll be wearing it over a simple tank and a pair of coloured jeans, or tucked into a floral skater skirt.
These to me look similar to something Miranda Kerr would wear! Tan heels also instantly elongate your legs and this cut-out pair allow my skin to breathe a little.
I bought these because I love anything rose gold, but I've since spotted Jennifer Lawrence in an almost identical pair as she promoted Silver Linings Playbook pre-BAFTAs in London. JLaw teamed hers with an orange cut-out dress but that's a bit daring for me. I might wear them with an orange skater skirt I have lurking in my cupboard.
I picked up the pump version of the pointed heels for the same reason, but these are perfect for wearing on a day-to-day basis rather than on a night out.
I picked this up for work - I even went as far as taking my iPad out and checking it fitted in! Haha. I love the fact that the different straps mean it can be worn on your shoulder, across your body or on your elbow.
I bought this because I loved the floral print and it's perfect for wearing to the gym etc. The wipe-clean fabric is also handy for any spillages!
I already have loads of nude clutches but this is the first one to have rose gold detailing - so I had to have it! These are great for nights out in the summer.
Gold collar tips - £1.50
These were an absolute bargain! You simply add them onto the collar of your blouse and it instantly jazzes up a look.
Neon hairbands - £1
Did I mention I was a huge neon fan? Ha!
Crochet headband - £2
I thought this would go nicely with the woodland print dress, above.
Travelcard holder - £1
I'm a commuter so this floral travel card holder went straight in the basket! Stylish AND practical? Win!
Sunglasses - 50p (reduced)
Wishful thinking here I reckon because I haven't had a chance to wear them yet but I'm counting down the days when I can!
Trainer socks - £2
Who DOESN'T want socks that have Amazeballs on them?!
Peace earrings - £1.50 and necklace - £2
This is a big trend for SS13 (I've seen similar pieces in New Look etc) it's a quick and easy way to jump on the look.
