The best thing about coming home from university (apart from seeing my family, of course) is going to the local shopping centre and hitting Primark. I had such a good shopping experience yesterday that I bought too much for just one post! I was pleasantly surprised at the range on offer in Primark - maybe I just caught the introduction of the summer range coming in? Anyway, let me tell you what I bought. Apologies for the quality of the photos, I have no idea why they're such a low quality compared to usual.
01. see through orange dipped hem shirt, primark, £10. At last! I have finally found a shirt that hangs in a vaguely flattering way. As usual in Primark, they had no small sizes so I got a size 12, even though I could have done with a lot smaller (it's definitely over sized). They also had this shirt in cream, which I would have preferred, but every time I try it on, I fall more in love with the orangey colour.
02. green chinos, primark, £12. Another item of clothing I have problems with, this is the only pair of trousers in my wardrobe. They are still a bit baggy for my liking in some places, but chinos are an absolute must for summer, and they'll be great for every day fun. If I really like them, I might try and find some tighter jeans version - I just love the colour. Primark are stocking these in grey, pale pink, green and cream but only had the green in my size.
03. necklaces, primark, £2.50 each. You can't fault Primark's jewellery range, and I picked up two little wonders for a small price. The large cameo necklace was bought so I actually have a long necklace which hasn't got an owl on it - it isn't the most expensive looking of all costume jewellery, but it is a really great statement piece. I've been wanting a chain/fabric necklace for ages, they're so pretty and feminine. Bargains!
04. flowered pumps, new look, £6.99. I had a quick look at these in store because they were cute, but expected them to be a price which would be more than I'd want to pay for flowered shoes. I was shocked at the low price for such a comfortable pair of shoes. Ever get that feeling when you put on a pair of shoes that they'll be around for a long time whenever you want a happy feet day? These were the buy of the day - comfortable, cute and perfect for any summery outfit.
