I could make up a ton of reasons why I haven’t blogged in two weeks and bore you with all the same excuses everyone makes but instead I will jump straight into why you clicked on this post in the first place….to see what amazing items Primark has in store for the Spring/Summer seasons.
It’s no secret now that for the past couple of years Primark has increased it’s pricing but with a price increase meant the items were that much better and you now no longer just go to Primark for the basics, you go there to get the “in” pieces for half and maybe three quarters of the price.
Jeans: Topshop Joni Jeans
[The picture above is how I would imagine styling the Primark jumper, not all items are from Primark.]
In the UK we had one gorgeous weekend where the weather hit the high 20s and everyone layered on sunscreen, threw spontaneous BBQs for their neighbours and enjoyed the sunshine because us brits know to never take the sun for granted and as expected, the following day the clouds rolled in, the rain came and only a couple of days ago it felt like we were back in winter. So although it says Spring Haul in the title, it consists of more winter related items.
The first item I picked up was this gorgeous salmon pink jumper. I wanted it to be oversized and baggy, allowing me to roll up the sleeves and style it with jeans and a denim jacket, comfy, casual and cute so I got it in a size 14 and it’s the perfect fit for how I want to style it. [Inspiration from Zoellas latest clothing haul.]
I also picked up these cute mirrored sunglasses for £2, maybe they will bring some luck in the sun returning.
I got this amazingly bright turquoise cropped jumper for only £5. It immediately caught my attention and when I felt how soft it was, I just had to own it. I think this is officially the brightest thing I now own in my wardrobe.
These pale pink high waisted jeans were also a bargain, only £10 I believe. They have little rip on the knees which I love and I think the turquoise jumper and these jeans would be a perfect spring outfit when the sun finally decides to show it’s face again for us. I’ve heard a lot of great things about Primark jeans so I’m excited to see how they compare to my beloved Toyshop Joni jeans as they look exactly the same.
Jumper: Forever 21
The final item I picked up in Primark was this adorable corduroy pastel pink pinafore. I can tell pink is really in this season as it’s everywhere in shops and now apparently it’s appearing a lot in my wardrobe.
I’ve never owned a pinafore until now but always wanted to but was never sure if they would suit my body or my style. However, when I saw this I couldn’t not buy it. I imagine wearing it [like shown above] with a grey cropped jumper, knitted tights and Uggs. That outfit seems very wintery but if you saw the weather in the UK right now, you would understand why.
I only picked up 5 items on this trip to Primark but I saw a lot of other pieces that looked amazing as well. Primark is definitely one of my favourite shops for clothes and accessories, not only for the basics but for some really fashionable pieces as well. Primark is upping it’s game for sure.
I will definitely be featuring all these pieces in OOTDs in the future as I can’t wait to wear them all and have already worn both jumpers to uni this week, so keep your eyes peeled for more OOTDs from me.
Thank you so much for sticking with me while I went MIA for a bit but I finish my first year of uni in May so it’s really hectic with a final push of work and blogging has had to take a back seat. I’m actually meant to be doing uni work now but one blog post can’t hurt can it?
until next time,
