It's been a little while since I had a bit of a splurge in Primark and nothing beats the feeling of shopping and knowing that you're going to get a lot of bits for your pennies. Just before Christmas my town had a new Primark open and oh my gosh it's amazing. By no means the biggest Primark ever but it's huge compared to the tiny shop we had before and it means I don't have to travel too far to pick up the essentials and other goodies Primark have to offer.
I really wanted to pick up some little bits for my spring wardrobe and in June I'll be going on holiday so I thought I'd pick up some items to start getting me excited. If theres one thing I've learnt about Primark shopping over the years is that if you like something you have to pick it up there and then - Chances are it won't be there on your next visit. So if you want to see what I've picked up, get cosy and keep on reading...
The first thing that caught my eye was this crochet turquoise crop top with lace trims around the bottom and sleeves. It's a little oversized and looks great with a pair of high waisted ripped jeans. I am loving this colour right now, it's perfect for spring and would also look great in the summer paired with shorts. This was £10.00 and I think it looks a lot more expensive that what it really is.
My next purchase was inspired by Zoella, in her latest Primark haul she featured a little black knitted crop top. Whilst I really wanted to pick up the black one, they didn't have it in my size, but I did manage to find one in white. If I'm honest I would have picked up both as they are just lovely and look great on. I don't really wear white often, but I love the shape and style of this crop top and again I think it will look great for spring and summer.
I wear a lot of black as part of my everyday wardrobe so I just couldn't resist picking up this little black top. I love the high neck on it and the striped pattern just makes it a little more interesting. It is a little on the sheer side so wearing the right bra or bandeau top is a must with this top. I've already worn this with my black ripped jeans and it's a perfect little day time number.
Another top that I just fell in love with instantly is this gorgeous grey knitted racer back top. I love wearing grey, it's a colour thats suitable for all seasons and pretty much goes with everything. I also picked up these light blue denim shorts for my holiday and for the summer. They only cost £5.00 which is such an amazing bargain. I'm thinking of taking a pair of scissors to them along with a grater to make them look a little worn and ripped, what do you guys think?
Spring and summer wouldn't be complete without floral hair accessories. I have to say I'm a big fan of floral crowns but there not really piratical for everyday wearing. I saw this coral rose hair bobble and thought it would be perfect for placing in the top of messy buns. Even worn around your wrist this little rose hair bobble will look really cute and make any outfit look a bit more spring like.
Moving on to a bit of home-ware, I had to pick up this watermelon and citronella scented candle. I love lighting candles any time of year and this one is a real spring treat. Not only is the colour amazing, but this smells so good. It has to be one of the nicest smelling candles I've ever bought from Primark, I'm actually tempted to pick up a few more. I also picked up this little heart ornament thats painted white and is decorated with duck egg blue flowers. I thought this would make a great little prop for blogging photos and it also looks pretty hung on the chest of drawers in my bedroom.
Another purchase inspired by fellow blogger Kayleigh (Couture Girl) is this pretty geometric wash bag. As you can see there is definitely a certain colour running though this post - Call me a woman obsessed but I just love turquoise right now. I love the design of this wash bag, its a decent size, will be perfect for packing my toiletries and beauty bits on those gym mornings and of course I shall be taking this away on holiday with me.
Thinking about my holiday in June, I wanted to pick up some essentials which included a beach towel, flip flops and bikini. As you can see I managed to get all three which match perfectly and again have this geometric design running though them. I thought all of these would be great for those days lounging by the pool. The towel has to be my favourite, its so soft and the colours and the design are spot on.
And finally I had to pick up these ice lolly moulds, I saw them and instantly got excited. When it comes to warmer weather I much prefer an ice lolly over an ice cream and it's so easy to make your own in any flavour you want. I love the little fruit shaped tops on the ice pop tray but my favourite have to be the silicone moulds - AMAZING. I think Calippos are my favourite ice lolly treat, I just love the way the juice collects at the bottom. These little moulds mean I can create any flavour ice lolly that I want and I cannot wait to get freezing and eating.
So that's everything that I picked up from Primark. If you've been in there recently I would love to know what's made it way into your basket? Let me know in the comments below.
Lots of Love
