When it comes to quality Primark have certainly upped their game, and when I popped by the Bristol store a couple of weeks ago (my favourite store – four floors of heaven, FYI) they had some great Autumn/ Winter things in so it was only right I share them with you… First up this checked shift dress with rose gold zip detailing instantly caught my eye, very 60s-esque and it fits really well, I plan to wear a roll-neck jumper underneath with thick black tights and chelsea boots for a fab Winter look. The roll-neck reminded me of the ones that were in Topshop a little while ago, and obviously this one was at a fraction of the price at only £10, perfect to wear tucked in with high waisted trousers with a grey coat thrown over you. Who doesn't love a cost chunky knit in the colder months? I've been looking for a cardigan to just throw on over the top of any outfit and this beige cable-knit style is the best I've found!

When it comes to make-up I'm not particular picky or much of an expert, but I love love love matte lipstick and crayons so when I saw Primark had some new colours to make your lips pop over Winter I grabbed a couple – I also picked up a natural pale pink. The lipsticks are long-lasting and offer great coverage, and at only £1.50 there's nothing to hate. Also, for no particular reason other than following the crowd, I picked up this pom pom keyring for just £2 – a great little accessory obviously for your keys but it also looks great on your bag, too. Something I'm trying to branch out with is colour – now, I'm pretty good with colour anyway but as you can tell with this haul I love me some neutrals, but this khaki green mohair knitted jumper with high neck got me seriously excited! I know I'm going to be wearing this with jeans and boots and an oversized scarf all through the chillier months. What is a haul without a check shirt? This is actually meant to be a dress with a belt but being a taller person I'll be wearing it as an oversized shirt – stupidly I picked up a size 10 that was on a 14 hanger so this isn't oversized enough for me, time for another trip to Primark, then.

I love me some lace, but when it came to picking between the black version and this white one I was put in a quite a pickle! But, after going back a couple of times (ok five) I finally chose the white one and I'm so glad I did – I think it'll work great for the holiday season with black tights, hair up in a bun because of the high neckline, and a Primark lipstick that I picked up. LOVE! I got another one of these mohair knitted jumpers, this time in grey – a great baggy fit, and beautiful light grey colour makes it great for layering. One of my favourite things I got in this haul now…this bag! Faux suede? Check. Tassels? Check. Gold hardware? Check. I absolutely love it, and was again stood there for a while trying to pick between this black one and the berry version – this one will go perfectly with the white lace dress!

Trying to fit a knee-length coat into a tight frame was never going to go completely to plan, but hopefully you can see what I love so much about this. I've been looking at coats for ages from here there and everywhere, I didn't expect to find the perfect one for me in Primark – I'm a firm believer in paying more for a coat as, most of the time, it has to last you 3+ years so it's more of an investment piece. But, this was only £23 and is really well made and gives amazing structure! This roll-neck is a something a little more special than your regular one, this glitter effect means it'll work well on a night out for dinner or drinks (or both) tucked into a high waisted skirt and knee high boots. Last but not least (if you've made it to this last paragraph, then bravo!) whenever I go to my favourite high-street brand I always buy a scarf and this one will go perfectly with the grey coat with the black back wrapped around it.

I hope you enjoyed this little (OK, it's kinda huge) Primark haul, let me know your favourite piece in the comments below!
