What better way to welcome in spring (who else spotted that big yellow thing in the sky this week? this gal did) than with a little Primark haul! I've been popping in to Primark pretty much as and when I've been near one - that's either Wood Green or Tottenham Court Road as I'm based in Islington in London. Looking at various High Street stores right now it's clear that they don't really have a clue what to offer their shoppers, mainly as we're in the middle of two VERY different seasons but, that being said I still managed to spend a good amount of money and pick up a few new pieces for my warmer wardrobe. PS. some of these items were sent to me from the lovely Primark PR girls so I'll just mark those with a *, but this isn't a sponsored post with the brand...a girl can dream...

STRIPED & EMBROIDERED DRESS

Probably my favourite outfits to throw together in spring is a strappy dress worn over a plain white T-shirt with either Converse or sandals. I picked this dress up when the weather outside was shockingly bad and I was like screw this I need some summer, pls. I really like the stripes contrasted with the embroidered flowers and it's not at all see-through which is what you can get with some of Primark's pieces, can't you? Plus, it's a really good length and I've already tried it with a T-shirt underneath and it works really well, so when it's finally bare-legged weather I'm excited to give this dress its first outing.

FLORAL WRAP BLOUSE

HOW Topshop does this blouse look? I really couldn't believe that this was a Primark top when I saw it. I definitely made the right decision when I made sure I tried this one on in store though as the sizing is all askew (especially if you have big boobs, fyi) I ended up getting this one in a size 16 and, even though I've probably put on weight, I definitely haven't gone from a size 12 to a 16 in three weeks. I'm excited to wear this one just with jeans, a denim oversized jacket and high waisted jeans with trainers and then change it up and put it with a leather skirt and boots for party time. Not that I party, but, ya know, the idea's there.

CACTUS CANDLE* & TROPICAL LEAF THROW*

Primark seems to be absolutely killing it with their homeware at the moment (aside from all the Disney stuff they have) and it's hard to control myself when I want to buy every single thing - whether it matches my theme or not! Their throws are super soft and the candles, while they don't smell all that strong, are so atheistically pleasing and have such an affordable price point I just want to buy them all! I'll definitely be heading there for some more soon, obviously.

PINAFORE DRESS

I've already got a lot of wear out of this dress. Right now, I'm wearing it with tights, roll neck top and boots then I'll change that to a white top and trainers when summer comes. It's super thin (but not in a bad way) and features these two big pockets on the front. It also comes in a few more colours and believe when I say, I was stood there for about 10 minutes trying to pick which colour to go for but I'm glad I went for this pale one with red and yellow running through it as it makes it slip seamlessly into spring!

FLORAL BUTTON THROUGH BLOUSE

Much like the pink floral wrap blouse, I was pleasantly surprised when this floral number caught my eye in store. This is my style of top when it comes to going out out or just for work with jeans and loafers (I work in a very casual office environment). I love the sleeves on this as I'm currently hating on the tops of my arms and the pretty green and pinks just work perfectly, along with the buttons and tie detailing, it's just a great 'all-rounder' to have in your wardrobe.

PHOTO STANDS*

How CUTE are these photo stands?! Perfect for your polaroids I love this cactus (got a little cactus obsession going on there, Primark?) and heart designs that are just perfect to pop on your shelf  to add a personal touch to your room. The base of the stands is weighted to they don't topple over either, win!

POLKADOT WRAP TOP

I think I went a little overboard with all the wrap tops I bought (in my defence, this haul wasn't in one trip, there were multiple visits) but polkadots is meant to be one of THE prints to buy for spring so I allowed myself one more top...This one is a lot looser and a bit more see through than the others, so much so that it's probably best worn over a strappy top underneath (which isn't really my vibe as it makes me look like I've got one giant boob) or over a bikini with shorts if you're headed on holiday.

STITCH SWEATSHIRT

I wasn't sure if I should put this in my haul but, I'm not ashamed for my love of Disney ~particularly Lilo & Stitch~ so thought I WOULD share this gorgeous jumper with you. It's not something I would wear in the outside world (no judgement if you would) but I love it for when I'm just getting cosy in the evening and at the weekend in my joggers. The inside material is so soft and fleecy, it's a struggle to take it off!

  1. The two green blouses are so pretty! I never ever wear green, but I think I might pick something up from Primark to see how I feel about it :)
