I loooooove Primark – they are great for basics and the price is so cheap, you could actually buy two pairs to ensure that you will continue have that cherished item in your wardrobe. Sadly, I didn’t purchase any doubles but I really love the three items I picked up today.
This is my second Primark haul (click here to see the first haul) and as you can see, I don’t purchase a lot and I don’t go clothes shopping a lot either as I’m a bit of a hoarder. So I purchased a floral canvas bag (£1.50), black culottes (£5), and blue high-waist skinny jeans (£10).
I am in love with the floral canvas bag! I am a bit of a collector for canvas bags and this is the prettiest one I have seen in a while. I am considering to buy this again because I know once it starts getting dirty, it’s going to need a wash and will probably shrink or become distorted in shape after the wash… sad times. The black culottes are going to be my new staple bottoms for work. I’ve been looking for a pair for a while now and this one was the best shape and fabric so I had to purchase it – it was also on sale for £5 so a bargain really! With the blue jeans, they are a cross between jeans and jeggings as they are really stretchy but not classed as jeggings as they have a proper sip-fly and button unlike jeggings.
The colour is amazing and is what attracted me to them as I have been looking for denim in a similar shade but can never find it. It’s like the traditional blue that you used to be able to find widely, just all one colour not washed with other colours nor bleached. Perfect. I am also loving high-waist jeans as it works well with long and short tops; crop top and high-waist skinnies are on trend this summer so I shall be joining that trend. Who says being a mummy means I need to dress all frumpy 🙂
I also found a wonderful monochrome cardigan (£12) which I think would be lovely for our British summers. It’s light enough to wear when it’s sunny but windy or not as warm, and would also be perfect for those cool summer nights. I love the geometric pattern and anything monochrome is always an added bonus for me!
